I personally dislike PVP in Runescape but my friends who were Hardcore PVP'ers are saying that they're not returning to Runescape because Legacy have huge disadvantages in PVP. Is that correct?

 

Anyone of you tried PVP after the launch of Legacy Mode?

 

Cheers,

There are legacy-only worlds so the disadvantages shouldn't be a big deal really.

I know that, but i would still like to know the difference.. does Legacy have a chance against EoC?

If you are a rusher or doing pvp where no food is involved, then they are fairly equal from what I can tell. However, the longer the fight, EoC will always win due to stuns, bleeds, Debilitate, Sacrifice, and Devotion.

“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

So basically... Legacy doesnt stand a chance against EoC in PVP?

Nope. EoC has very little burst damage, but the damage reduction abilities, constant damage, and high ability accuracy makes it infinitely better than legacy's burst damage.

Been duelling with my brother (level 120 like me) and he killed me everytime.. he used Legacy mode. hes special attack hits over ~2000 everytime while my ultimates only hits ~500.

 

No idea if that is a glitch or on purpose..

What is your ability rotation and combat style? Also, remember that you should be using the same tier weapons, armor, prayer, food, and potions to keep those factors as negligible as possible.

I was on Full Manual Mode, and we both had Ganodermic with Skill Capes and Vine Whip. we had everything the same. I even prayed one time and he still kicked my butt.

I'll ask again, what was your ability rotation?

 

I would try...

 

 

anticipation -> backhand -> punish -> slice -> sever -> debilitate -> anticipation -> slaughter (if it hits) -> escape ---------------------- he should be more than dead at this point

 

anticipation -> backhand -> punish -> slice -> sever -> debilitate -> anticipation -> slaughter (if doesn't hit) -> assault/destroy ------ repeat until dead

 

 

 

 

 

I'm no expert at pvp, but this will be better than just clicking buttons.

My prediction is that EOC will still have an advantage overall, but maybe jagex will tweak things around for PVP.

Why? Why would they? They already tweaked things. They made a legacy only world....

THEORY:
 
>Jagex need money
>They come up with 'Legacy Mode' 
>'Legacy Mode' would allow them to milk old, nostalgic players for money
>Jagex realise Legacy would never work with EoC
>Jagex realise they need to change EoC so that they could work together
>Combat Beta is released which changes EoC so it could co-exist with Legacy
>Specs are added to EoC
>Stuns are nerfed
>Food is buffed
>Damage is nerfed (Through armour)
>Legacy players could now fight EoC players
>Jagex then announce 'Legacy Mode'
>They promise that it wouldn't affect EoC
>Legacy was actually the reason for nerfs
>Average player wouldn't realise this because combat beta happened before
>Legacy and Combat 'Improvements' are released
>EoC PvP community gets screwed
>Jagex make money because players join for legacy
>Jagex win
>We lose

it is pretty clear that they're trying to get old players back though, they just released a "rewind guide" to recap all of the crap people would have missed if they quit over eoc and are now coming back because they hear jagex shit on eoc to bring them back
