Make four seasonal pets, then combine them into a perennially faithful follower for your adventures: the Pet of Seasons.
From 00:00 UTC on 8th October until 23:59 UTC on 13th October, Treasure Hunter will yield four types of natural material: flourishing seeds, lush blossoms, fallen leaves and charred branches.
These can also collected through gameplay too: by training Herblore, Woodcutting, Farming and Firemaking, respectively. You can also swap materials of any of the four types by trading directly with other players.
Collect 600 of any one type to make the corresponding seasonal pet. Create all four and combine them to get a Pet of Seasons token. This can be traded on the Grand Exchange, or activated if you'd prefer to keep the pet for yourself. It's possible to create more than one token and trade the ones you don't keep.
Every three months, the Pet of Seasons changes its appearance to match the time of year: blossoming in spring, verdant in summer, golden-brown in autumn and snowy in winter. If you wish, you can invert the seasons with a right-click.
The Pet of Seasons is the ideal adventuring partner all year round, and is sure to be highly sought-after. It's the perfect match for the Crown and Cloak of Seasons, too.
Any spare materials will be cleared up on 28th October, but before then you can trade them for Bonus XP in their related skill by speaking to Lady Niya in Burthorpe.
Note that Ironman players can collect materials and create pets, but they cannot:
Trade materials with other players.
Trade the Pet of Seasons token.
Trade spare materials for Bonus XP.
We hope to see a good few Pets of Seasons bouncing around the game in the near future. Enjoy, and let us know your thoughts over on the forums.
