Skilling Pets & Deadman Tweaks

This week's update is here and we've got a big one for all of you skillers out there... Skilling pets! If you've ever wanted to show off just how committed to a skill you are, now is your opportunity!

Skilling Pets

Skilling pets are here! Those of you committed to the grind now have a chance, albeit a very small one, of getting your hands on a skilling-related follower to show off to all your friends. 4 skilling pets are now available for Woodcutting, Mining, Fishing and Hunter!

Woodcutting - Beaver - Can be obtained when chopping any tree.

Mining - Rock golem - Can be obtained when mining any rock (including ore veins and the Motherlode Mine).

Fishing - Heron - Can be obtained when fishing at any spot.

Hunter - Baby chinchompa - Can be obtained when hunting chinchompas. When transmogrifying your baby chinchompa there is a very slim chance of it becoming a golden chinchompa!

These pets are going to be very rare, so if you catch a glimpse of one in game do not miss the opportunity to grab a screenshot and tell all of your friends!

Deadman Changes

Skulls visible on right-click

When right-clicking a pile of players it was often difficult to determine which player was the one with the PK skull. To help you see exactly who you should be targeting, a skull will now appear next to a skulled players name when you right-click the player.

Discard keys from the Deadman chest

A button that allows you to destroy keys from the bank raid interface has now been added. You will be warned before destroying keys to make sure you don't accidentally destroy any high value keys.

Timer on destroying keys

When attempting to destroy keys from your inventory you will now need to wait 10 seconds before the key is destroyed. This timer does not apply when you are trying to destroy keys from the bank raid interface.

Halloween 2015

While we have now removed the Halloween login screen, the Halloween 2015 event is going to be available to play until next Thursday. Do not miss your opportunity to have a go at the event and grab yourself the rewards - you won't be able to get them until next year if you miss your chance now!

    I wonder how long it'll take for first skilling pet to make it in game.

    I'd like to say weeks, but we all know the OSRS community tends to blow our expectations out of the water with this sort of thing!
