PVP rules to live by??

Ok, I just want a better understanding of pvp. I just hit level 45 the other day and when i was out for solo farming a character I saw had red lettering and was attacking someone. I watched this happen and knew I was next. I didn't enable pvp, just waited for them to attack me. Then I fought back, but lost. I don't know what level he was and their gear but it was over fast. Now, I don't take karma lost if you just defend yourself? should I keep going back and let him keep killing me until his karma is really high? does my gear get wrecked? how about xp loss? If I enable pvp and then try and get the 1st shot in will i still lose karma?

You could've tried to assist the other guy with the PKer, the only thing that will happen to you if you die is a 1% exp loss, which is nothing at lvl 45.

Now, I don't take karma lost if you just defend yourself?

That's correct, the player who initiates the attack will be the only one losing karma, so you're free to defend yourself and/or your friends if they're being attacked. 

should I keep going back and let him keep killing me until his karma is really high?

That's up to you to decide. Just keep in mind that some highly geared players dont care about going into minus karma. 

does my gear get wrecked?

No, your gear wont get 'wrecked', tho it might lose some durability, but that's easy to repair at a blacksmith. 

how about xp loss?

If someone PKs you (read: not guild war) then you will lose 1% exp, but since you're still lvl 45 that is no big deal for you. It'll be worse once you hit lvl 50 and above. If it's a guild member from a guild you're at war with then there will be no penaltys for dying.

If I enable pvp and then try and get the 1st shot in will i still lose karma?

When u die in pvp u lose xp (allways unless u use elions tears for rezz in the spot) and chance to lose socket crystals and trade items (only pve?), now, if u have + karma, the killer have a karma penalty, if u have - karma , there is no karma penalty. Someone with - karma is allways "free" to kill in karma matters.

GvG "free" to kill outside safe zones, cant inside, unless the target have "protecction" then is like a blue player , so for kill this "war targets" u need flag for pvp (pk mode?) and get a karma penalty.

neg.  karma players can lose enchant lvl on pve death , havent see it or hear about, just forum info.
