Untitled[edit source]

The Servers list in the wiki suggests that World 4 is used for PKing. I can't think of a valid way to put it into this article, but it seems like a good idea to put it in, doesn't it?

Perhaps...we want information to be sustainable though, too. Something as fluid as a preferred world may change in the future, who knows...If it does, who's to say that we'll think to update this page? On the other hand, worlds 1 and 2 have been used for in-game marketing forever, so I'm kind of neutral on that Endasil (Talk) @ 16:59, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Wouldn't "advertising" it here just help to further-keep it constant? Perhaps not a solid mention, but a mention that it is "often used", rather than being "prefered"? Yleron 17:14, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

i think it would be nice if someone posted a warning to low levels that tells them not to go pking unless they have certain stats and then list the stats Bigm2793

The problem is what level would people consider safe? Even a level 126 can be in trouble if he runs into a team of 10 or so level 120+ PKers. Amaurice talk 15:27, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Could we get a citation for that whole '20% of players quit' thing? Sir Revan125 00:51, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

I edited it to say 6% since 60,000 members did quit during these updates, however some of them were probably auoters. I was also going by the number of subscribers Jagex had claimed when they reached the 1 million point, so it's possible their subscriptions were around the 1.3m or higher when these updates occurred causing the percentage to be more in the 4.6% range.

Possible changes[edit source]

Acorn 5.png
This page in a nutshell:
  • Remove the {{Obsolete}} template
  • Move the History section near the top of the page

I think the {{Obsolete}} template at the top of this article should be removed. It has been over 6 months since the update and I'm pretty sure that the article has had all of it's obsolete information removed or placed in the 'History' section. I also propose that the history section be moved near the top of the article, before 'Combat Areas'.

Any comments/opinions/questions?

I agree with the changes you've outlined. It's about time they happened. Chicken7 >talk 13:59, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
Ok, so if there is no opposition to my proposals, I will go ahead and make the changes by 0200, 28 June, although, if there is any dispute over the mater, I will postpone the changes until we come to a consensus. Magic potion (4).pngCFLM Talk # Sign 14:15, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
I have edited the article according to my proposal, if there is any objection to the changes, please contact me via my talk page or by ingame clan chat with my account, Chrisso125. Thanks, Magic potion (4).pngCFLM Talk # Sign 02:54, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

PKing is coming back[edit source]

Whoever deleted the addition I made to the history section, stop remvoing it! PKing is returning!

Guide[edit source]

Do you guys think that we should have a guide on this? It could be helpful for the players who like to pk. --TheWeirdOne876 03:51, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Defenitely yes. If anyone can do it, please, be my guest ;) 4ndrepd 19:24, 24 February 2009 (UTC)--

copyright violation issue[edit source]

the combat classes article is copy and pasted directly from the runescape knowlage base and need to be rewritten.edit:: forgot to sig Duckersmash3 01:17, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Exp[edit source]

I know the PvM experience is 4 x damage, but i never read anywhere or haven't heard any method of calculation of the PvP exp/damage. Is it the same as for revenants (1 x damage)? Please answer, help is appreciated. Also, is it the same for every place (Duel Arena, FoG, Wilderness)?--Snowball (2006 Christmas event) 5.png Alex1496 Snowball (2006 Christmas event) 5.png 16:02, December 31, 2009 (UTC)

Mobilizing Armies[edit source]

I don't think you could count Mobilising Armies as PKing.

Balancing of combat triange section?[edit source]

Perhaps we can add different thing Jagex has done/is doing to balance the combat triangle. e.g. the recent mage update Quest capeGundoggyTalk Contribs #Blue hallowe'en mask 09:51, March 25, 2010 (UTC)

l0l[edit source]

this article is entirely wrong, as if it was written by a level 64 with a dragon medium helmet and granite body. clearly the authors have no pk'ing knowledge. i'd edit it, but i'm banned from editing and really don't want to waste my time.

Issue[edit source]

regarding the guide to using ancients and hybriding the information and images are incredibly misleading. the guide should be deleted not fixed as there are so many ways which ancients can be used effectively and so many different settups. The current settup and information is terribly incorrect and is no help to anybody.

Right... we're not going to delete the article. If something is wrong, edit it and correct it. I don't PK so I wouldn't know. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 09:18, January 8, 2011 (UTC)
The guide is not a separate article it is an unecesary section of the magic section in this article. the section should be deleted mainly because its incorrect and uneeded here but also because there is probably something very similar on the page on ancient magic. In short it shouldnt be here and even if it was good it should still be deleted or moved. again i am not refering to this article or the magic section i am refering to the ancient magic guide within the magic section.File:Soul split.gifispectraltalk
Just deleted it, it's really pathetic to see someone wearing dragon gauntlets pass himself off as the authority on mage/hybrid gear.

Question in the Wilderness if you pk someone and they have money & they pk you once you have taken their's would it double?[edit source]

If you pk someone and take their money, and they come back and pk you, does the money double for them? It's just a question...

i think that a guide would help people because if they do they would be happy and get more help from this awesome website

@@@@@@@random person above: I will try say this in the calmest tone that I possible can. No it would not double. You would just lose all of your money and that player would get their money back. Anyone who tries to tell you something different is stupid or scamming. 06:27, January 14, 2012 (UTC)

Clan Citadel Battlefield[edit source]

It's been a while since they came out, but this area is the tenth place in which PvP can occur, this time in a heavily customizable location.

However, I'm terrible at sounding professional and don't know much about the subject, so...

Random Bites[edit source]

I got a chuckle out of the looting section in player killing. 'This is frowned upon" as is rushing and back-stabbing. As if player killing is a totally honorable activity full of codes of conduct. This must have been written by a player-killer who felt he got taken advantage of at one time or another. I mean look at the section of player killers harrasing those poor penguin hunters for no other reason than harrassment and the pkers enjoyment. I mean if you are going to capitalize on the misery of others you have no business frowning on activites that do not specifically benefit you. jmo

What happens if you disconnect while in PvP combat?[edit source]

Does the battle continue as if you're doing only normal attacks? Puretppc (talk) 01:34, October 13, 2014 (UTC)

I'd assume the same happens whether you're in PvP or PvE combat: it will take about a minute for your account to be actually logged out, if you lose connection in combat. You'll likely just keep using auto attacks; not sure in the case of Revolution, though. You certainly do keep getting hit (from experience, always fun losing connection just after summoning a double agent, in Haunted Woods). IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 04:25, October 13, 2014 (UTC)
