Xp loss for pk

44 posts in this topic

Posted

at lv 55 and up the xp loss for being pk'ed is so  @&$;&$ up lost 6.8% trying to grind at pirates island. Enough to make me quit the game... The grind is so long and to lose that much xp to other players with better gear is B.S this game favors the most garded people in grinding spots and world bosses they get the W.B loot and the best grinding spots. They keep getting stronger and higher leveled. RIP

I find it good that you lose exp when being killed. I mean imagine you dont lose anything why would anybody attack you and lose Karma? Lets say I want to grind with my party and there is some guy who grinds at the spot. It wouldnt make sense killing him if he doesnt lose something.

I've been going slow but I grind and grind until I get a lvl then quit grinding and do other things for awhile. I avoid as many thing as possible where I might die while I'm grinding. It sucks..... really sucks.... One way that works, at least so far, is I grind in areas slightly lower than my level so yes it takes more time but it seems to be quieter and more peaceful.

If you keep dying there, go grind at an easier location. No sense in forcing yourself through a place you can't handle

He loses time....

Right now... you kill someone they lose time and more time with the xp loss. 

Karma is just a indicator of if you an jerk or not... 

PK's need to die in a fire...

It is not a big deal. Had some idiot that wanted to show off how a 55 could beat my 51, and followed me, killing me 8 times. He got bored, moved on, 30 minutes later, back to where i was. Just ignore the idiots and do not let the little things get to you.

I know I get it but going to 55 to 56 losing any xp sucks bad. No big deal below 55 but think at lv58 if you lose just 1% you just lost like 1/2 your day of play

I know it sucks to loose exp at 55 since 1% is almost like an hour.  however, either change channels, don't go to pirate island until you are ready to pk other players, or only go in 5 man groups for places like that.  you have to think about how effective it is to level at an area, and how you can reduce your risk of being pked before you go to a place.

High value grind spots are usually PK hot-spots too.

They do lose a few things. They lose the spot they were farming, they loses time, they risk losing trade items they might have looted, they risk losing equipped crystal and right now also lose exp.

On the other hand you lose 60k karma which is a joke and get a farm spot and potentially some trade items for free.

i agree, 60k karma is a joke. It would not deter anyone that has that mindset to harass or grieve another player. I read that it was 100k, but somehow missed that they changed that.

Getting pk'd and losing xp also encourages hackers to kill you with no cd hack

Pirate island is massive, you were up there continually trying to pull packs from the rotation our guild was running, so they killed you over and over. If you want to farm there, go to another part of the massive island or change channels. You were stubborn and stayed there, so you lost xp.

Go to a different part of the island?  They can't spawn camp you because you can choose to rez at town.  

Generally the people that post things like this are the guys running up to other players (and groups of players) and trying to kill steal.

Quit raging and play smart.  There are places you don't go solo without scoping the area out first, and guess what?  If someone wants your spot, you either fight for it or give it up.  If you aren't winning, don't fight. You can avoid being PKed by playing smart.  I spend most of my grind time solo, and generally only groups can push me out....but it is very rare for one of them to get a kill on me - I just leave, then find a different spot.  If they killed you, there is a good chance you were taking mobs from their rotation.  Going back means they are going to come after you again, and this time they will be more persistent

It helps when you don't come in and flag on a group then cry abut xp loss. You killed our mobs and we responded. You could have gone somewhere else but kept coming back
