I can understand the frustration involved in this, I have been through it before but believe me soon you will have a blast trying to evade these wannabe pkers. Plus I agree with the guy saying that they are wimps, often they come to kill you because they are unable to kill anyone else. When you gear up and go after them, they high-tail it out of there.

I think it has probably become a little difficult to run away because of craziness of the newer spec weapons but just make sure to carry a one click tele at all times.


I do it because I'm not interested in fighting others. People who were geared there I fought also, but for me just killing them like that is fun.

Three months banishment to 9gag is something i would never wish upon anybody, not even my worst enemy.

Pk'ing is a childish activity. There are a lot of pre-teens who play Runescape.
Pretty much all there is to say.

Just because you can't PK doesn't mean it's a childish activity :roll: .

Good luck with that homework then.

Because by and large it's not about training a skill, or gaining money/items. It's about making someone else's experience a crappy one and enjoying doing so. Look at the topic...pkilling people doing runcrafting runs...WTF do you get? A bunch of rune essence?

C'mon.... :roll:

Pking is usually done when two people are fighting, so I guess you have no idea what you're talking about.

Abbys pking is just killing runecrafters, which I do. It's about me killing bots and the occasional person. I 3 hit someone for 50k worth of loot easily. I've had 2 kills that totaled for 400k, and none of them below 50k. Also made some guy lose adze :XD . I don't care what you think, I find it fun. And that's usually the only reason one should play a game.

EDIT: Posted Image

Decent fun cash.

One would argue that you do actually gain money/items. And besides, if only things that gain money/items/skill xp count as "not being childish" do you find CWars players childish? People who like to chill with friends? (As an aside, youd also argue that killing people does actually give xp, albeit not much).

Yeah, of course...pking is childish...mature people go grind skills.

No sense whatsoever. PKing also gets money/items, so that's pretty stupid too.

I'm not an efficienado.

I look at it as the way they designed the game in the first place, the wilderness is supposed to be dangerous no matter what activity you're partaking in.

Wasn't one of the big arguments for returning the wilderness that the region is meant to be dangerous? You can't really accept that and fault people for going after easy, profitable prey. If you want something to blame, blame the mechanic itself. Blame the guys that designed RC to be as slow and painful as possible and then forced RCers to train in the wilderness to bring it up to 'almost bearable'. But don't blame the people who use the mechanic as it was intended to be used.

I'm not. I was responding to the guy who said that pking was childish and immature, and that pking didn't get anything other than frustrate the pk'ed.

If you PK then you're a child. End of.

Real men grind the same skill for hours and hours on end.

It's a rather simple answer:

This is a role playing game. You take an area that is known for defenseless (almost defenseless anyway) people with a small but easily gained sum of cash, and there will be bandits there to rob them.

A legit reason for killing abyss rc'ers would be the bots, of course.

But it's pretty hard to tell who's a bot and who's an actual player in this case.

Pretty much this. Unless you were hunting for the fun of it, there is really no point in abyssal pking just to stop bots.

I was once killed when I was abyssing. I was wearing a regen bracelet, trimmed glory (don't ask why >_>), and some other stuff. Oh yeah a few hundred tele tabs and stuff.
I got clawed. All I did was laugh for failing so hard and never abyssed again.

I guess abbys pkers are not that common, but if you have bad luck you will probably find 1 or 2. :thumbdown:
