Everyone wants to be the best Runescape or in most of our cases Runescape Private Sever PKers we can possibly be, but how can we achieve that? We see a lot of elite pkers such as Elvemage, Kids Ranqe and many other legends and all of us want to be like them. We’re going to give you the basic tips you need to know to start your journey.
1. Pick A Style
Runescape PKing has evolved over the years and today we see a variety of different styles of PKing. We have bridding, melee, range tanking, mage tanking and a bunch of different less known styles as well. We recommend for you to pick a style and stick with it until you master it. Are you a deep wildy PKer? Going on melee probably isn’t the best idea because if someone has mage then they can farcast you. It’s important to pick a style that is appropriate for where you plan on PKing. For beginners we recommend using melee or range tanking. This will allow you to deal a lot of damage while still playing it safe.
It’s important to practice and master your style just as much as PKing. We’d recommend that you join a clan or get some friends and work on your technique. Switching, eating and using spells all at the right times are a crucial part of PKing. When you practice at a place such as duel arena you’re not putting yourself in risk of dying and loosing your items but you’re still getting practice in and improving as a PKer.
3. Stay Aware
We can’t stress how important it is to stay aware while PKing, we know that you’re concentrating on your fight but there may be someone waiting to rush you when you kill the other person. It’s extremely important to look around and make sure no ones standing around with a special attack weapon wielded. It’s also very important to be aware of lures as these are all very frustrating ways of dying.
4. Inventory Setup
This is something that is often overlooked by players, setting up your inventory is crucial to being a good PKer. You need to make sure that everything is in a position where you can easily access it. Also make sure to always put everything in the same place as eventually it’ll become muscle memory where items are and you’ll become a much faster and efficient PKer.
Remember the good old times in Runescape when you could go PKing and even if you didn’t usually PK you still had a chance? Those times are over, you need to make sure that your account is optimized for PKing. I see people all the time who don’t have the proper stats and die quickly. If you’re a melee fighter then you shouldn’t have 99 range and 80 strength. I personally like to keep my strength the highest, followed by defense and then attack the lowest. This allows me to take the least damage while outputting the most.
