    Hi,

    is there a template out there that's easy to play PKing and without the rather new skills that need int?

    with the skills:

    Anatomy
    Healing
    Sword + Lumberjacking / or Fencing with Poisoning
    Tactic
    Hiding
    ...??

    Pking alone is never easy...unless you are hunting crafters and bots.

    Most Pks work in groups or as part of a team. They call targets and often have blues gate hugging that heal them.

    If you want to be a dexxie duelist...it is as much about the talent as it is template.

    I think what you may want is a ninja, if you're only worried about PK and not PvP.

    That lets you pick the people who are already weak due to being a crafter, a bot or already in a fight and up against the ropes.

    As for a template, I have no idea. That isn't my play style.

    As for the not-requiring int stipulation, there is no template that doesn't require int, since all melee skills require a lot of mana to use well. If you aren't using specials, then the only thing you have to look forward to is gray screens.

    How does a blue gate-hug and heal a PK at the same time w/out being guardwhacked?

    Stealth/ninj/archer would be a good template if you don't want to PvP, and just cheap shot people.

    Carry a composite bow for a 35 HP Armor Ignore. Pop shot people who are low on health =)
     
  5. Where's the fun in killing a basically defenseless opponent? I just don't get how that can be any kind of a challenge, or even fun in any way.

  7. I still don't see how killing defenseless people is fun. There's no challenge in it at all.

    Well I guess it's not challenging, but it's funny. You can't have "funny" without "fun"!

    Lynk said it pretty much lol. It is just for people who wanna get a cheap thrill.

    To the OP, in terms of a dexxer/warrior template, you still will need a descent pool of mana.

    He said PK...not RED there is a difference...I know a lot of blue PKs. They only attack when the opportunity is right.

    If a PK can get someone to screw up and flag on them...then their healers are safe. I use to see it all the time at yew gate. I don't go there much anymore so I don't know if they still do.

    Or the PK can wait for a red to show up....they are free game and their gate hugging friends can still heal them after they attack a red.


    As long as a gate hugger doesn't heal a red...or a grey they are safe from guard wacking.

    Well, using the 'technical' term of what PK stands for, Player Killer, yes, you can be blue and still be a 'PK'. But most PK's these days, are indeed red PK's.

    What you're referring to, is what we used to call noto-Pk's. Either way for someone to flag on you and you're still blue, or go grey, incognito and hope someone attacks you.

    I did it all the time in Buc's Den. Was loads of fun.

    I'm assuming that SYN wants to be a red PK, not a noto-PK.

    One of the best templates to use when your just starting out is (IMHO) a ninja archer with hiding and stealth. You can stealth around and pick your opponents, you have good specials on bows and can use deadly poisoned shirkins or darts. People complain about these template all the time, they must be something to them! :D
     
  13. On pac, there are alot of blue wannabe PK's
    Theres this one fellow in particular, he has "GUARDS" attached to his macros for his specials lol
    Angerisagift, haha I laff at thee

    biggest gate hugger of them all until there are 3-4 + more trammies to join in on a gank on red.

    And how about those blue GD tamers that hug the gate.
