    Are more people starting to pk?

    disclaimer: this thread is not about the discussion whether pking is bad or not.

    I'm not very often playing hardcore, I did it for a while in 1.09 and I just started in 1.10 ladder

    My very first char got pked, it was my first ever char dying that way. It was of course in the sewers, I wasn't aware of the fact that it's a great location now since the introduction of wp timers.

    I noticed that my second char got hostiled really often, seemed a lot more than before. In this forum there are a lot of guides about pking. It seemed before that this wasn't really possible here.

    So, is there an increase? :)

    (Softcore bores me to death, I want to play Hardcore but it doesn't help when they get slaughtered at level 11 :lol: )

    I believe so. The leveling portion of the game is quite over for most people and they have quite a bit of wealth laying around, thus they PK. Pk'ing before used to take some skill, as damages were higher for everyone. A TS asn was something to fear....Same with the good ole Chucker. Now all it takes is a charger pala with some max jewels and they're relatively hard to kill.


    The lower levels are full of idiots who think they can PK.

    Maybe, Night's points make sense. However, I just decided to make a trapsin, and I didn't get hostiled once until Baal.

    Oh, oops I did get hostiled once in Travincal.

    But I was hoping for more. I played all pubbies, and I wasn't shy about joining run games. I only played private for Meph and Diablo quests, so as to get benefit of keeping my drop.

    It must depend on the time of day or something. :hanky:

    I just love the rush of pking or getting hostile...its so alert and...i dunno, rush of the kill! I LOVE IT! Heh, it sounds pretty reasonable, they level, they pk, they love. They get rich and duel/pk, cause its fun.

    "I wasn't aware of the fact that it's a great location now since the introduction of wp timers."

    Yeah, The sewers was really scarce on PKs back in 1.09... :lol:

    EDIT: Ahhhh, so that's where the PKs took their refuge with the new rules :thumbsup:

    EDIT2: Gosh, I swear I saw a PK in sewers once back in 1.09 :scratch:

    Hah!
    I had to lean back after reading that as a result of laughing...
    Then my chair fell over.
    Then I kind of yelled.

    I hope you're happy about waking up my roommates at 4:30 in the morning cooner.

    The only problem with that is that they don't tend to stay around when I hostile... Even had one talking to me out of town how he didn't want to loose his PK that he worked so hard on. Next run I took his ear :D. He was one of those types that set loot so people would fight him, so I gave him back his gear...

    Yeah I know but the entrace is more interesting now than the wp. I was waiting at the entrance for more people to join :hanky:

    I had just decided not to alt-f4 when hostiled but use a tp. Something didn't work with my tp hotkey however. Some charge pally entered and single-hit-killed 3 players.
