|Examine||Looks like it's gotten through a lot of wood.|
The beaver is a skilling pet that can be obtained while training Woodcutting. A strange sound is heard when you obtain the beaver while Woodcutting. The chances of getting it are dependent on the player's Woodcutting level, and the time it takes to gather a resource. Chopping ent trunks and bruma roots will not give players a chance to receive this pet.
When a player receives the pet a message in the chatbox appears (You have a funny feeling like you're being followed.) and it will automatically try to appear as their follower.
When woodcutting, the pet is prioritised over the resource gathered. For example, if there is one last inventory space while woodcutting, and the player already has a pet following them, the pet will appear in the inventory, giving the player a message "You feel something weird sneaking into your backpack." while the log cut will drop to the ground.
On death, if a player loses their pet (as a follower or in your inventory) it will wander around for 30 seconds before disappearing completely.
Shown below are the base chances of receiving a beaver.
A player's actual chances of receiving it is 1 in B - (Lvl * 25), where B is the base chance and Lvl is the player's Woodcutting level.
|Tree||Base chance (B)|
- Player: How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
- Beaver: Approximately 32,768 depending on his Woodcutting level.
- The beaver pet is a slightly modified version of the beaver summoning familiar from RS3, with the yellow spots removed.
