Revision as of 20:32, 10 February 2017

This article is about the pet. For the former random event, see Rock golem (monster).

Rock Golem chathead.png

The rock golem is a skilling pet that can be obtained while training Mining. The chances of getting it are dependent on the player's Mining level, and the time it takes to gather a resource.

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 mining, the pet is prioritised over the resource gathered. For example, if there is one last inventory space while mining, and the player already has a pet following them, the pet will appear in the inventory, while the ore mined 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.

Players can pay a one-time fee of 500,000 coins to Probita in East Ardougne to have this pet insured. Should the pet be lost while insured, it can be reclaimed for 1,000,000 coins.

Colours

Player's can change the rock golem's colour by using the desired ore (excluding blasted, daeyalt, elemental, lovakite, and lunar ore) while it is following the player. To revert the golem to its original form, players must use a plain rock on it.

Dialogue

Default variant

  • Player: So you're made entirely of rocks?
  • Rock Golem: Not quite, my body is formed mostly of minerals.
  • Player: Aren't minerals just rocks?
  • Rock Golem: No, rocks are rocks, minerals are minerals. I am formed from minerals.
  • Player: But you're a Rock Golem...

Tin variant

  • Rock Golem: I feel strangely emotionless and empty. Maybe I should feel sad about it, but I can't.
  • Player: You can't feel sad?
  • Rock Golem: Correct. Now, if I only had a heart...
  • Player: I'm not sure it works like that around here.

Copper variant

  • Rock Golem: I have an idea for a song.
  • Player: Oh?
  • Rock Golem: Copper-copper-copper Cophelia - you come and go, you come and go...
  • Player: Mmmhmm.

Iron variant

  • Rock Golem: Truth is, I am Iron Golem.
  • Player: I can see that.

Blurite variant

  • Rock Golem: I have an idea for a song.
  • Player: Oh?
  • Rock Golem: I'm blue, da-ba-dee da-ba-da.
  • Player: I can see that.

Silver variant

  • Rock Golem: Oh dear, I've gone all pale.
  • Player: Are you okay?
  • Rock Golem: It must be something I ate.

Coal variant

  • Rock Golem: So near and yet so far... if my atoms were arranged a little differently, I could be diamond.
  • Player: Would you enjoy being a diamond?
  • Rock Golem: I expect I would, until someone tried chipping bits off me with a chisel. I'm probably safer as coal.

Gold variant

  • Rock Golem: I'm totally showing the bling today.
  • Player: That's nice for you.
  • Rock Golem: A little. Though sometimes I just feel like I'm being used as a status symbol, and no-one appreciates me for me.
  • Player: Oh dear.

Granite variant

  • Rock Golem: No-one appreciates granite.
  • Player: Why do you say that?
  • Rock Golem: I know how it works. No-one actually wants granite. They just chop us up and throw our pieces on the floor.
  • Player: Oh, I can see that must be upsetting for you.
  • Rock Golem: When you've seen your relatives cut into pieces, with their severed limbs cast aside like junk, THEN you will understand how I feel.
  • Player: I'll bear it in mind.

Mithril variant

  • Rock Golem: I feel sad today. Very blue.
  • Player: Oh dear.
  • Rock Golem: No-one understands me.
  • Player: Why not?
  • Rock Golem: Because argle gargle gooble goop.
  • Player: ... I don't understand you either.
  • Rock Golem: *sigh*

Adamantite variant

  • Rock Golem: I may be green, but I'm not an environmentalist.
  • Player: Why not?
  • Rock Golem: There's no need. Whatever you may have read, even coal is a renewable energy source - just wait a minute and the rocks respawn.
  • Rock Golem: You can burn as much as you like, too, without needing to worry about it affecting the climate - we don't have a lot of weather here.
  • Player: That's handy.
  • Rock Golem: Yes, I pity anyone whose world doesn't work like this one. I don't know how they can possibly cope.

Runite variant

  • Rock Golem: I'm confused. It takes incredible skill to smith anything from my ore, yet the items you'd get are terribly mediocre.
  • Player: Is that something that worries you?
  • Rock Golem: It just feels like my world doesn't make sense, sometimes. But I suppose it's always been like this, and I've got used to it.
