Some questions about outdoors Pvp.

4 posts in this topic

Posted

Hello !

I've seen some posts here and there about world-pvp and I want your honest opinon about it.

I mainly care for the pvp aspect of an MMO and outside is where I got most of my fun doing it in general.

Can someone TL;DR me a lil bit?


Are there a lot of "known" areas to world-pvp/gank people?

What are the downsides of killing a low-level player?

Is there a complete stealth class? I've played a bit of Kuno and it was only around 12secs of invisibility, does it get longer/better?

 

Thanks! :)

You lose karma, if you go negative you lose XP, & Crystals in your gear on PvP deaths. PvE deaths trigger the same with a small chance to downgrade the enhancement level of a random piece of gear. 

I.E - You're fighting while negative and die to a mob, your +15 can downgrade to +14. 

If you run without crystals and go negative while you have 0% XP and you never die to mobs then technically there are no negatives to being negative karma, provided you don't die to a mob. 

Sausans, Pirates, Ogres, Gahaz, Basilisks, Crescents, Fogans, Elrics, all pretty popular grind spots you can gank people at. 

No there isn't a true "stealth" class, Ninja/Kuno concealment skill is the best you're going to get.

every 55+ area in media/valencia is a pvp area, it happens all the time, if you flag on someone you lose karma, if you kill you lose more karma, as you keep grinding your karma becomes normal, therefore you should decide on your own when to flag, because it sucks when you are negative karma and need to go to a city(guards will attack you),other than that things that Panda mentioned are valid, when i was lower than level 55, i kept reading comments on this forum and it felt like people with 3 times gear score of yours keep ganging you and doing pk all the time, but it is nothing like that, at least as my experience, open world pvp is awesome, it is something social, it allows you to find new friends, form groups, and it is fun as hell. Don't believe every shit that is written on forums, it represents really small percentage of player base. Just put some time on life skills and making money, be careful about the balance between your skill points and level, and try things on your own, in the end everything becomes fun. Ninja stealth goes up to 20 seconds as i remember, which is a quite long time since ninja/kuno is the only class with that kind of ability,

Ninja and Kuno both get an ability at level 56 that allows them to use their awakening weapons while in concealment. This skill also extends the duration to 20 seconds, meaning you basically can perma-stealth if you want, but only if you're willing to do nothing but move around very slowly a majority of the time.
