Runescape Classic Pking and Why It Was So Good

Recommended Posts

Who is this U N C E R lvl 122. He runs around veteran server every so often. Claims to be legit and been around for 6 years, yet doesn't appear in high scores LOL Apparently not too bright either doh. He decides to come out with "Your character is auto" today as we had a few rounds outside of the axe hut. Who would have thought? That MUST be the reason I've only gained 1 combat level on rsc in 3+ years LOL

 

On topic now... I never was a great pker. In fact, I'd be quite surprised if you call yourself a pker and didn't own at least 10 sets of armour in your bank account from me. What's the point of having a family member who can smith full rune if you're not going to take advantage of it ;-)

 

The thing I miss though is walking around in large groups of mates through the wildy. Even when there were no kills, it was a great day because my friends were some of the funniest people I've ever met. I was a great sh*t stirrer though, pitty that wasn't a skill level.

Apparently the strategy for classic pking now, is getting a large team, maybe 8-10 people (and mostly autoed accounts), with several staffers, then sit and team up on Swifty, dsm and Kdog all day.

 

 

No one wants to 1 on 1 anymore. Then they team you, wall, log and bank, come back and talk about how they OWNED you.

 

I thought that crap started 6/7 years ago.

UNCER was just some [rooster] that stuck around after RSC died and autoed to max level.

 

I tried RSC again for about an hour when they relaunched and killed him with the items i logged in with from my last play (years ago - had two sets on me rofl) I've not bothered to log in again since so i got three sets on me somewhere lol :P

 

And to previous posts.. Yes pking will be piss poor now because every castle pker has been pking at high lvl on private servers and act like they did in varrock level one.. MUST THREE HIT OR NO IRON!? This is why they tend to run around in teams of 6-10 with god staffs..

 

RSC pking.. For me has finally come to end and... Probably ;)

Haha, not really? I honestly don't even miss it anymore! :o

 

I played on Private servers for a little bit and always thought ''God i miss real RSC'' Then when i tried real rsc again i remembered what a pain in the arse it all was & they STILL hadn't fixed the mage wall lol, unfortunately we can't go back in time because i don't think it will ever re-gain it's greatness

I miss catching kids on bio with dave. Also, on the weaken note. 1v1 yeah it was lame but then groups got more popular when i'd just solo or go with dave so yeah i'd use them then lol. Funny [cabbage] was also when you ran away, then you get sniped by an archer and die before you could eat he got that lucky 12 damage! People played better then and if you asked 1v1 people would more often then not stay out.

This thread is stupid and untrue.

 

Prayer beasts were NOT made for 1 iteming.

If you're gonna be an idiot in this thread, you should base your idiotic statements on something.

So tell us Mr. Smartypants what were PB's made for? I was a personal friend with the person who thought up the stat build, so it will be interesting to read what your personal concept of a PB is.

 

 

 

I'd also like to see you even attempt to write a thread like this, without it being a mishmash of hand-me-down and ripped off information written by other, lets just call them more enlightened beings than yourself.

If I remember correctly, you could hit higher with ultimate strength, than you could with the extra str levels you would get in place for those combat levels...

They were pures who wanted to hit higher.

 

Maybe your friend, who was the first person YOU saw with the build, did it so he can one-item. That doesn't mean anything.

Actually, the definition of pure back then was 1 mage and 1 prayer.

The "telegrabbing nature runes at nature rune island in wild" was a GREAT moneymaker

 

In the beginning I use to take 300 nature runes at a time, that would get me 1050 nature runes per trip

 

As i got higher in combat, I would take 2000-3000 nature runes at a time

 

I remember this one guy "Hollander" who would usually be telegrabbing nature runes at the same time, I added him to friends and I killed him over 15 times. I was not a good pker so I owe that to what I expected was massive lag on his part from having multiple windows open to quickly switch servers. Back in the day there was no wait period to log back into a server like the 40 second wait you have now. YOu just logged out, and logged back in on another server if you had it open in a new window

 

The BEST pker I remember was "Liquidsky", the party hat pker..man..that dude was GOOOD...is he still around?

 

 

 

I have a question though, I use to have a forum account here years ago, where people posted pics etc, I had up several pics of a conversation with myself and Mod Mark at mage arena in wild, are these forums archived anywhere? That I can find these pictures?I cant even remember what picture uploader I used back in those days but I would really love to find those pictures of the old days

...Hence the name prayer beast?

did u hit ur head or is it a chronic thing?

 

pures and prayer beasts are 2 seperate things. go back to rs2 where pures have magic and prayer, and where ranged raises ur level.

 

perhaps it hasnt gone upside ur head yet, that prayer beasts and iron pkers are also 2 seperate thigns. since you seem to beleive that they "only wanted to hit higher".

now i'll try to make this post semi-idiot proof in hopes that you might actually understand what I'm trying to relay to you.

 

 

PB's were made for pure profit. NO RISK ALL PROFIT. Is that hard to understand?

 

25 prayer = protect r2h. (most chose 31 for the ulti str tho).

 

Food? No you don't need that.

Why? Your not gonna spend much time eating since you plan on 3 hitting your opponent anyway.

 

Yes my friend who i saw with the first stat build of 40 1 XX XX and 25 prayer was the first prayer beast, and yes he did it so he could skull and still never lose r2h (most valuable item in RS). So YES he was the first pker with that intentional stat build therefore he was the first PB.

 

 

Your major problem is your difficulty with comprehending the difference between iron pkers and PB's. Iron pkers with no prayer lost their r2h's when they died, and the prayer beast idea fixed that.

 

Its hard taking you seriously when you have no clue.

Someone explain to me what the Mage Wall you guys are talking about is? Sounds of interest, just to know for the sake of it.

 

OT, I never pked in RSC. I remembered getting dropped when I was killing the Dark Wizards north of the Chaos Temple, and that was it for me.

Good post, I too remember the good ol days of RSC Pking, I opened my first account in 8th grade (2000) which was the year runescape first came out. I think one thing that is missing from this post that I will add for the sake of it being complete, was the Plate Pure, this was someone who made a Pure account when you had the option to buy I believe the thing you need from the hobgoblin to complete the dragon slayer quest instead of having to telegrab it. I actually have an account on RSC that is a Plate Pure, it was was fun to Pk with these characters because most rune pures would assume when seeing someone who is wearing a rune plate that they had atleast the magic level required to telegrab the thing you need and if this was so being pure they would be a superior fighter combat level for combat level. So having a plate pure you would get attacked alot =) Also I remember Pking before there was a Rune 2hander because when the game first came out the only way to obtain a Rune 2hander was for it to be player made and of course the game being new there was no one with the required smithing level to make them. I wish I could remember her name but I recall the first person to beable to make a Rune 2hander, it was a rather celebrated event and everyone could not wait to get there hands on one. When the Rune 2hander first hit the market it was not uncommon to have to pay upwards of 1M Gp this was back when 1M Gp was alot of loot! Pking around this time was not only very fun but very profitable. With all of the changes they have made to PvP on RS2 you can find yourself hard pressed to actually turn a profit as a Pker. I guess one of the things I miss most about pking on RSC was that pking was something different to many it was an additional skill, you could be a fisher, a miner, a smither, a crafter, etc. but apart from the skills you would find listed you could be a pker! The ability to choose pking as a runescape career path is something you just don't see anymore. I think because of this many have lost the dedication it takes to be a pker and thus you don't see the same caliber of pking specialists you did in RSC. That said the new runescape is deffinatly a great game, however, it could use a little bigger taste of RSC on its PvP worlds =)

It was basically a small area next to mage bank where you couldn't attacked in. I'm not sure whether you could use magic on people whilst they were there, i never really pked p2p i was purely f2p only back then.

Yes I was friends with Who Da Best and we trained and pked together for some time. He taught me a lot.

 

You mean WDB was with Ashley? I don't think they used to pk together but the wildy was smaller then. ;) Ashley used to pk with her bf Blaze. Me and Blaze would fight a lot back then. :mrgreen:

 

Mage wall is a place in p2p wilderness where you couldn't attack anyone except with magic.

 

Also I remember Pking before there was a Rune 2hander because when the game first came out the only way to obtain a Rune 2hander was for it to be player made and of course the game being new there was no one with the required smithing level to make them. I wish I could remember her name but I recall the first person to beable to make a Rune 2hander, it was a rather celebrated event and everyone could not wait to get there hands on one.

 

Bluerose13x was the only source of rune 2 handers for the longest time.

Nice to see some true veterans around. I myself started in 2001 and loved the game, it was really nice to come home from school to relax on it. My name on it was Josh683, was one of the first to mine rune ore and a 99 level fisher. I loved that adrenaline rush of PKing was grand. Had a friend who was one of those guys who would show up to school and say, got another R2H, he just had a natural talent at PKing. He even show me during lunch breaks to prove it, amazing haha. 
 

Fondest memory was getting members and adventuring over white wolf mountain, back then I was probably at a level where I couldn't actually defeat the wolves so I remember waiting for others to venture over so I could sneak past one wolf at a time while they distracted it, or just make big runs for it with a bag full of lobsters hahaha. Epic times... I played into RS2 but wasn't fond of the new graphics and jerky performance of it. The classic style armour is still the best looking in my opinion. Nothing beats the look of a rune large and the colour of it in classic. 

 

one big thing I have to note which I think slips a lot of peoples minds is that back in the early 00's people were not particularly high levels like you see now with everyone at 99 everything. Like bluerose13x for example, was the only person who could smith an R2H so it was much more exciting to come across those items because of how rare they were. Seeing a high level player and hitting screenshot a million times to show your friends was exciting too or seeing a Jagex mod log in on your friends list haha I mean a true mod like Andrew or Paul, not a player mod. I became good friends with Mod Bernard after he was checking on my mining to see if I was auto mining outside of falador (iron rocks) on a free server. Anyway, the game was great but couldn't be again unless they did what they did with RS2007 and made everyone start again on classic. They would have to improve the resolution because back then on my 15" screen running at 800x600 it was quite large, these days, not so much. Maybe make it a true 3d game but keep the same look and feel. I bet if I can imagine in my head what that would look like, it would have everyone joining. Fresh start for all players. I remember checking the highscores each day and I would be in at least 6 categories for them even as a lvl 40, was enjoyable. 

 

Another thing, fatigue ruined the game a lot, keeping the game simple is for the best like right now RS3 you log in you get about 16 pop ups trying to sell you in game expenses and stuff you care not for, so much content that you would need two brains for 4 years to learn. I remember I went back to go Pking about 5 or so years ago and my friend was like im never going members, I have no idea what tricks people can do there now, would get one hit, at least on free I know what is going on. Dragon kind of ruined the game because it made smithing useless. You could buy dragon swords,axes from a vendor for dead cheap (even in RSC currency) which made all that expensive hard worked smithing levels go to waste. I think Jagex should have raised the level cap for skills past 99 once they figured out that that distant planet of a goal was actually being achieved because that distant goal was part of the fun knowing that maybe someone might get there and open up a whole new bag of candy and excitement for the player base.

 

Also in RS2 and above, running is annoying. People are going to shoot me for this but in RSC, catching was awesome with that diagonal move, so much skill involved outside of the character levels. Everyone took the same amount of time to get from A to B. It made the game feel a bit more like a 2nd life instead of an arcade shooter.

 

Maybe this is just my nostalgia having a cry but that is what made the game so amazing for me. I remember saying when I was 14, gosh I am going to play this game until I die, but yah I quit about 4 years later haha. I quit because of RS2 I think, I even gave away 3 party hats, 6 santa hats, and 9 masks (3 of each colour) to a friend of mine I didn't know IRL. 

 

Anyway, if anyone knew me in game (Josh683) give me a shout, would be fun to chat

PS - Remember the excitement of seeing a pile under you after a PK that contained a Rune 2 Hander compared to the oh another dragon sword PK. R2h 1 million, Dragon sword 100K. Rune 2H would be more like 2 billion in RS3 economy judging by how rare it was back then. Dragon sword... still 100k. Economy is ruined and nothing is exciting anymore because everyone has everything and highest levels. What reason is there to play once you have 99 Everything? I bet a lot of people hit 99 everything and get depressed realising how much of their life they have used to get there only to find now there is nothing to do and the game is useless to them.

Originally Jagex planned the 99 exp points to be impossible to achieve (I remember reading this in a post made by Andrew in an interview) making the game always something to do and shoot for. You can't just make everyone start over fresh, you need a new game which is where I think a remake of classic with todays technology would be a good idea. Make the skill levels go higher or adjust the exp so that it really is almost impossible to get 99. Ok I'm done!
