This article is about the pet. For the boss, see Vanguard
The vanguard is a pet who is a much smaller version of the Vanguard. It can only be obtained by receiving the olmlet pet, then using metamorphic dust on it.
Once players have used a metamorphic dust on their olmlet, they can then right-click "Metamorphosis" to change between the olmlet, a puppadile, Tektiny, a vanguard, Vasa Minirio and Vespina.
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.
