Viable PVP should be the #1 Priority of this Server

Recommended Posts

Currently PVM in this server works pretty damn well and so does skilling and everything else which is why this server is successful. What's the one thing it's missing? 




Here's the huge thing. PVM works at the moment but PVP doesn't so when a player comes to this server and mainly wants to PVP but there's literally no opportunity to do so, they quit instantly! Not to mention current players eventually getting bored of PVM and having no PVP to do temporarily, lose interest over time and can also quit. So lets fix PVP!

I've pked a lot in RS2, RS3, OSRS, many private servers, and especially private servers with very similar if not identical customs to this one. I've seen pking in all of those be very balanced and fun and also go to shit over time and with the release of items that break the balance. With that said, I have the following suggestions:


1. Don't allow ridiculously OP customs meant for PVM or everyone will get 1hit and nobody will pk.

2. On the other hand, don't allow armor with ridiculous absorb meant for PVM or some people will rag and be invincible and nobody will pk (maybe also don't allow divine spirit shields).

3. Probably buff the rewards. PVM should probably be a fair bit better than PVP for money making but PVP should give somewhat decent money. There should also definitely be some items that are at least BIS (best-in-slot) in some niche scenarios that you can only get as a PVP reward to get people into PVP. Since this game hasn't really had PVP since it's launch there should be something to jump start it.

4. Continuing that note... hype up PVP! Triple the rewards the first 3 days after the rework to get people into it or something. I don't care what it is, just do something!

5. Also probably make it easier/cheaper to get basic PVP items. Making barrows gloves cheaper, making it easier to get claws/ags for new players, etc. This will help reduce the barrier to PVP. If a player who's not even that rich can pk in full torva and have 1600 hp with brews, a new player should be able to get a regular ags to try and at least have a chance of killing them.

6. This one may be controversial but I'd honestly prefer most "normal" pk gear to be available from shops. That includes godswords, claws, void, imbued rings, goliaths, defenders, fire capes, torsos, etc. Some of these can be fairly expensive so it's not like they lose their value but it shouldn't be a huge hassle to get a basic pk set in together. You should be able to kill someone, sell all of their standard gear to the shop for coins and then when you die you can buy your normal gear from the shops easily. Obviously customs and more rare items shouldn't conform to this but if you want to have a regular DH fight with  claws, b ring i, and defender risk it shouldn't be a huge hassle to get more stuff if you die. 


That's just my 2 cents on how to fix pking, please add your suggestions as a response if you have any. Also please try to get this seen so we can get some decent PVP.

+1 for this man. i love PVP for than anything.

i hate pvm with a passion/skulking but this server just hyped it up now i love it.

fixing PVP? would make this server a 10/10 in my mind.

this server already avg’s 200-300 a day since release. but adding/fixing pvp? would be amazing..
