Here are all 28 skilling pets in RuneScape 3, ranked from worst to best.
RuneScape 3 is nostalgic for many players familiar to the MMO genre. One of its best features is the amount of different character costume options, and the incredible amount of different pets players can collect. Though pets offer no combat bonuses and cannot offer any aid in battle, they are still well-designed by Jagex!
Skilling pets are special pets that allow players to show off their prestige and are obtained while training. There are currently 28 skilling pets in total, one for each skill RuneScape 3. Like in Pokémon, players can collect all of these pets to earn the "Jack of All Trades" title to show off to other players. This list has ranked all of RuneScape's skilling pets by their appearance and details on how to obtain them.

Players should note that skilling pets are awarded randomly. All 28 pets are divided into two groups; either time-based or experience-based. The drop formula for time-based skills is based on how long it takes to complete an action in-game: Agility, Divination, Firemaking, Fishing, Hunter, Mining, Thieving, and Woodcutting.
Experience-based skills are Archaeology, Attack, Constitution, Construction, Cooking, Crafting, Defence, Dungeoneering, Farming, Fletching, Heblore, Invention, Magic, Prayer, Ranged, Runecrafting, Slayer, Smithing, Strength, and Summoning. The higher the amount of experience gained at once in a skill, the higher the chance of obtaining that specific skilling pet.
Rocky is the Mining skill pet, a pun on the adjective rocky. He can be unlocked by mining ores, rune essence, Serenstones, granite, falling stars, and more.
His examine text reads, “Don’t worry, he’s used to people looking at him in ore,” a word pun referring to looking at someone in awe.
Woody is the Woodcutting skilling pet. He can be unlocked when cutting trees (including bamboo and crystal), ivy locations, splitting logs, or training Woodcutting at the Clan Citadel.
His examine text references Pinocchio, as it reads, “It doesn’t look like he has said a lie in his life.”
Smithy can be unlocked by training Smithing through smelting bars/corrupted ore, smithing metal bars, and casting the Superheat item magic spell.
Players should note that smithing Protean bars do NOT provide a chance to unlock Smithy.
Gemi is the Crafting pet obtainable via various Crafting methods. Players can unlock her by creating jewelry, leather, glassblowing, or capping at a clan citadel loom.
The word Gemi is Indonesian in origin, meaning “modest lifestyle,” ironic considering she is a walking gemstone.
