Types of F2P Pures, PKers and Hybrids

Posted in Uncategorized on April 15, 2009 by ifax66

Hi. I made this guide some time ago, but I deleted it cause I kinda screwed it up. But, considering how popular it was, I’ve decided to redo it. So here’s the new version of it. Enjoy!

There are many combinations of stats that can make up the perfect RuneScape killing machines. There are some very simple combinations of stats that make up PKers, such as range pures, who only train range, and nothing else. And some hybrids train strength, attack, range and magic. So here’s a list of every type of pker, giving a description of each one, and a list of there stats they should have before attempting PKing.

Pures:

Strength Pure:

Strength: 50+                                                                                                                       

Attack: 40

Defense: 1

Range: 1 or 40

Magic: 1

Prayer: 1 or 25 or 31

I highly suggest keeping prayer at 31 for this pure. The strength pure is the average PKer. They are good and solid. They mainly use rune scimitars to lower enemies health, and then KO with the rune 2h. Strength pures sometimes get range so they can wear d’hide legs and vambs for added defense to there normal iron armor. All in all, if you don’t want anything too complicated, this is a good, and easy pure to train and play with.

Range Pure:

Strength: 1

Attack: 1

Defense: 1

Range: 40+

Magic: 1

Prayer: 1

The range pure is the most simple in terms of stats, but it’s actually a little more expensive to train than the strength pure, and will take a little more time. If you like speed and a fast rate of attack, then this is a good pure for you. Generally, range pures use the maple short bow to fight, and nothing else. Nothing more to say here.

Mage Pure:

Strength: 1

Attack: 1

Defense: 1

Range: 1

Magic: 59+

Prayer: 1 or 25 or 45

These guys cost money to make and time, even more than the previous pures we went through. Generally, the best mage pures train their magic with non combat magic spells so they don’t gain combat levels from hp levels. After they reach the desired magic level from non combat spell training, they use combat spells to train their hp. Usually mage pures PK with a fire staff casting binds, and then attacking with fire blasts. If you want to stand out, and own defense noobs, this is the pure for you.

Hybrids:

Range/2h:

Strength: 50+

Attack: 40

Defense: 1

Range: 40+

Magic: 1

Prayer: 1

These are probably the pures that own the most. Usually attack with range until opponents hp is low, and then take out rune 2h and KO. If you time correctly with this pure, you can make 2 hits appear at once with the bow and the 2h. Great if you’d like to see a lot of fast hits, and a bang to finish the fight. Pretty expensive to make, but is worth it in the end.

Range/Mage Pure:

Strength: 1

Attack: 1

Defense: 1

Range: 60+

Magic: 59+

Prayer: 1

Good if you like attacking from a distance. These guys usually dress up in mage clothing, but hold a maple short bow. They also have a staff in their inventories so they can switch it out to kill rune noobs. Kill people by binding, ranging, and finishing with a fire blast. They kill defense noobs by just switching out staff and binding, and blasting. They have the small disadvantage of eating up a lot of space in inventory with runes and staff, so they can’t eat as much.

Melee/Mage Pure:

Strength: 50+

Attack: 40

Defense: 1

Range: 1

Magic: 59+

Prayer: 1 or 25 or 31 or 45

These are very uncommon. I’ve only seen like 2 of these in F2P worlds. Basically, they just bind, and then bash with the rune scimitar. Like the other pures with magic, they carry a fire staff so they can switch it out to kill defense noobs. Usually carry runes, rune scimitar and 2h, staff, and food. They are very similar to range/mage pure. These guys wear mage robes usually. That’s about it here.

Ultimate F2P Hybrid:

Strength: 50+

Attack:40

Defense: 1

Range: 40+

Magic: 59+

Prayer: 45

These are near the highest combat pures you’ll see in F2P worlds. They are very expensive, and time consuming. If you like the way all the pures sound, then you’ll like this pure, cause he does everything. Usually, he runs around in all mage robes carrying a maple short bow just like a mage/range pure. But what you don’t know, is they usually have a rune scimitar and 2h in their inventory as well as a fire staff. When fighting a pure, they bind, range, and then 2h. Against range tanks, they bind, scimmy em, 2h. Against defense noobs, they just take out staff and own them. If you run out of arrows, you can switch to scimitar. You’ll never have to worry about running out of stuff to fight with. This pure will get great respect, and is probably my favorite F2P pure.

Tanks/Defense Noobs I Mean Pures:

Range Tank:

Strength: 1

Attack: 1

Defense: 40

Range: 40+

Magic: 1

Prayer: 1

These guys are fairly high combat, but are still lower combat than their range level. They are good if you like defense, but you don’t want to look like a total defense noob. This is a good pure because nothing has an advantage over you, not even magic since you have range armor that’s good against magic attacks. Nothing more to say here.

Mage Tank: 

Stregnth: 1

Attack: 1

Defense: 40+

Range: 1

Magic: 59+

Prayer: 1 or 45

These guys are really uncommon. I’ve only seen a couple of them. But they aren’t the best pure. Cause they can’t wear armor without taking away from their magic attack bonus greatly. Besides that, they are basically just a mage pure.

The Steel, Black, Mith, Addy, or Rune Pure

Strength: 50+

Attack: 40

Defense: 5, 10, 20, 30, or 40

Range: 1 or 40

Magic: 1

Prayer: 1

This is actually just a strength pure with a little or a lot of defense. Once you hit 30 defense, you can’t really call this a “pure” anymore, but there are some people that have perfect 40 defense and attack and high strength that call themselves maxed out rune pures. The most popular strength pures with defense are the black pures. I don’t really know why, but a lot of people think black looks cool, including me =P A lot of people also do the mith or steel. But those aren’t very popular at all. The rune pure very common to be made. But half the people that make it are noobs, so only make it if you know what your doing. The addy pure is very uncommon, since it falls in the middle of the best F2P armor and the “noob” F2P armor. And once you have 30 defense, your probably gonna want to go all the way to 40 defense. 

That’s the end of the guide! Some might be wondering why I say 45 prayer a lot. It’s cause 45 prayer is the prayer level where you can get the best magic prayer, so it’s a good place for people with magic that are willing to get prayer to aim for. Please comment n’ rate. Don’t flame, if you think this guide sucks, say it maturely. Any feedback, would be much appreciated. Again thanks, and happy PKing =)

Mage Pure

Posted in Uncategorized on April 10, 2009 by ifax66

The mage pure is simply a pure who only trains magic. There’s only one variant of the mage pure, and that is the mage tank, which is basically the mage pure except with defense. This guide will explain how to train one, how to pk with one, what equipment to use, stats to aim for, and will include a special video showing a mage pure pking. Enjoy!

Training:

For training, follow this guide I made. It should teach you everything you need to know for training a mage pure. Make sure you train your magic to at least 59 before you pk so you can use fire blast.

Stats:

You should aim for the following stats: 

  • Strength: 1
  • Attack: 1
  • HP: Eventually 99
  • Range: 1
  • Magic: 99
  • Prayer: 1 or 45 so you can use the best magic prayer.

I wouldn’t suggest getting prayer, as it eats up combat. But many mages get it since mages tend to be lower levels than other pures.

Equipment:

Before you pk, you should be outfitted with the proper equipment. Here’s a list of the equipment you should wear, and have in your inventory.

Equiped:

  • Fire Staff
  • Blue or black wizard hat (if you have the money, buy a (g) or (t) wizard hat, but don’t bring it with you to pk)
  • Blue wizard robes (Again, buy (g) or (t) if you have the money, but don’t take it with you to pk)
  • Anti-dragon shield. It actually gives a small magic bonus.
  • Monk Robes bottoms, or blue skirt
  • Magic Amulet

Inventory:

  • Runes to cast fire blast, a teleportation, bounty locate if your in bounty hunter, and bind.
  • Fill the rest of your inventory with lobsters or swordfish

PKing:

Finally, the best part =) Start by grabbing the exact inventory and equipment listed above. Go to the Grand Exchange in the PvP worlds, as the most people are there. Stay in the central area of the Grand Exchange, since it’s the safe area, and scope out potential victims. Look for people around your level in full rune. They will be the easiest to kill, and will give you the best drops. When you see one, wait for him/her to step into the area they can be attacked in, and cast “bind” on them. Now start to cast fire blast on them. At only 59 mage, you can do 16’s with this spell, which will own these rune noobs. When they break out of the bind, bind them again. Make sure if their binded to attacked them from a distance, so you will not be reached by them immediately when they break out. Whatever you do, never let your victim escape to the safe area. Bind them just before they get there at all costs. In bounty hunter, use the same strategy, except you won’t be able to choose who you fight. Just cast bounty locate, bind, blast, dead. 

 

A mage pure.

A mage pure.

 

 

Mage Video:

Watch this for some inspiration.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any good F2P mage pk videos. This was the best I could find. The guy here doesn’t exactly use my technique, but he has 59 magic, and you can see he’s hitting 16’s. 

 

Well, that’s all. Hope this helped!

Range Pure

Posted in PKing on August 29, 2008 by ifax66

Range is my favorite combat stat because it is constant and it does a good amount of damage. So, obviously I like range pures a lot. This is a guide I made on using and making a range pure. Enjoy!

Obviously, a range pure will train range. And, it will train range only. Unless, you choose to train prayer. For a range pker, I would not recommend this, but it’s your choice. As soon as you complete the RuneScape tutorial, use the gene lamps you’ve gotten to get your range up a little. Now, use this guide I made to training range, to train your range up to 70+.

Now your ready to begin pking! Before you do, look at this video for some inspiration:

Now you have inspiration, what do you bring to pk with as a range pure? Well here’s a list of what you should wear and equip:

  • Coif
  • Monk robe top of leather body, depending if you trained prayer or not.
  • D’hide legs
  • D’hide vambs
  • Any boots
  • Maple short bow and lots of addy arrows
  • Any cape (to look cool =p)

Your inventory shouldn’t have too much. Just bring food. Your food should be either lobsters or swordfish.

Now to your pking tactics. Pure rangers don’t have many tactics to use, but here are a few tips to help when you pk.

  1. If you are being killed in the wild, it is better to go down fighting than it is to run away. (if you are too poor to afford new equipment, ignore this tip)
  2. If you have to run away, find a place where theres a ladder or something so you can confuse your chaser.
  3. If you plan on running away in the wild, you should train your magic to 25 for teleport.
  4. If you start to run out of arrows in a fight, pick the arrows up around you.
  5. If an enemy runs away, keep chasing them. Chances are you’ll catch them thanks to your range.
  6. Don’t safe!
  7. If you have 43 prayer, after you make a kill put your protect form prayers on to protect from pjers. (pile jumpers)
  8. Try to avoid rune pures. Rune pures will prove to be a challenge to take down. But, some will be weak and will go down easier. Either way, stay away from them!
  9. If you have a choice, aim for a mage in the wild. They are weak against your range.

Yes, thats about it. Thanks for reading and I hope you found this helpful.

How to Make a Strength Pure

Posted in PKing on August 21, 2008 by ifax66

In RuneScape, a strength pure is basically a person who leaves his or her defense at 1 and trains mainly strength and attack. This is a step-by-step guide on how to make a strength pure. Enjoy!

First things first. As soon as you complete the RuneScape tutorial, use the gene lamps you’ve received to bring your strength up. Now for your training. Use this other guide I’ve made to train your strength to 50 and your attack to 40. Now that you have the attack to wield rune, and some strength, it’s time to get your hit points up. The best way to do this is to train your range to 40. By doing this, you will gain hitpoints, and you’ll be able to wear d’hide legs that’ll give you a pretty good defense bonus. And, this will only cost like 1 combat level. So here’s a guide on how to do that. Now, I would train your strength up to at least 70 at this point. For more info on this, click the “other guide” link.

Congrats! You’ve finished your training and now it’s time to do the fun stuff. PKing!!!! What do you wear? This depends. If you decided to train prayer during your training, wear:

  • Any type of boots
  • D’hide legs
  • Monk robes shirt
  • Iron full helm
  • Weild a rune scimitar

If you didn’t train prayer, wear the same thing, except where and iron plate body instead of monk robes. Your inventory should have the following:

  • Four strength potions
  • Rune 2h
  • Maple short bow and addy arrows (To chase enemies down)
  • And fill the rest with lobsters or swordfish

Now onto the PKing tactics. When you see a potential target, pot up and activate appropriate prayers, if you have prayer. Attack the target with the rune scimitar and lower it’s health. When the target is at low health, pull out your rune 2h and KO them. If they are not KOed, try again. And don’t safe. (Safing is eating food when your still high at health) Safing is for noobs. Eat when your at low health. If you are attacked, activate yoru prayers if you have them and fight back. And pot up at appropriate times if you are attacked. If your enemy starts to run away from you, take out your maple bow and fire at them. You may only have 40 range, but any damage done to them is better than none. If you do manage to catch up to your running away enemy, put the bow away and take out the scimmy. If you are attacked or attack a mage, take of your iron armor because the mage will do more damage against you if you have armor on.

This concludes my guide. Sorry I couldn’t get any pictures. =(

Alternative Training

Posted in Pking Skills on August 21, 2008 by ifax66

Do you ever get tired of fighting the same monsters over and over again when you train? Are you tired of making many trips to the bank for more food, arrows, or runes? If you say yes to all this, then this alternative training is perfect for you. All you need is a friend, and a full inventory of food. (Your friend should be around the same level as you) (This will work better for people with 1 defense)

So, you have a friend and you have food. What do you do? You go to the dueling arena with your friend and you fight each other with food. Make sure you both have the same food for this and make sure the food is good. Lobsters and swordfish will be perfect for this, and if your member, shark and monkfish will be fine. If you use range or magic, make sure you have plenty of runes.

Now for the fight! Fight each other in normal combat and eat food each time your health is low. Fight to the death and if you both are as strong as each other, the fight will be longer, thus giving you more xp in whatever your training. And, this is also good practise for pking. So, you’ll gain combat xp, as well as pking practise with this method of training.

Oh, and this is also a good way to train defense if your a defense pure. Just get another defense pure to train defense with you. Just attack each other and watch the 0’s go by.

Well, thats it for this guide!

Prayer

Posted in Pking Skills on August 18, 2008 by ifax66

Prayer is used by many pures and hybrids in RuneScape. But many say it takes up too many combat levels, so they don’t bother training it. But, in the end, players with prayer will have a serious advantage over those who don’t. I used to never train prayer on my pures. But one day, I faced someone in the dueling arena who was the same level as me, but had worse combat stats. But, he had 43 prayer and he used protect from melee on me. This brought my hits down, giving him a serious advantage. I lost this fight and ever since then I trained prayer. This is a shot guide on how to train prayer better. Enjoy!

It’s obvious. Prayer is trained by burying bones. And to get bones we have to kill a creature or any thing in RuneScape that can be attacked. So the first way of training prayer is the most basic. While your training, bury the bones of the monster or whatever your training on that you have killed. This only takes a few extra seconds and if you do this every time, you’ll have a respectable prayer level for your combat level.

The next way is, if you think your strong enough, is training on hill giants.

https://i0.wp.com/img252.imageshack.us/img252/381/gulgulahy8.png

Each time you kill a hill giant, bury it’s bones. There called big bones and they give more prayer xp than normal bones. If you didn’t know, hill giants are level 28. This would be my personal favorite way to train prayer, but you can choose.

The final way of training prayer involves you going into the wilderness. You must travel to the bone yard in the wild.

There will be many bones here. I’m not sure, but I think some big bones will be here. Anyways, keep burying the bones here because they regenerate. I would suggest this as a place to train prayer if you have barely any prayer and you want a high prayer level.

This concludes my guide to prayer. I hope you found this helpful.

Magic

Posted in Pking Skills on August 18, 2008 by ifax66

Magic is probably the least used combat skill in RuneScape. I’m not saying magic is weak, it’s just not as commonly used as range or melee. Even so, many pures and hybrids use magic for teleporting, binding, and as just another way to use combat. So this is a guide to training your magic level. Enjoy! (This guide was made for people with one defense)

Before we do anything, use all the gene lamps you got from the new RuneScape Tutorial and use them to make your magic level better. Before we go to the first magic training spot, we need to get some stuff:

  • Full iron
  • An earth staff
  • A lot of water and body runes
  • A cape (optional)
  • A magic amulet

Now make your way to the Zamorak monk in the Varrock palace.

He is in a cage in the Varrock palace, so he won’t be able to attack you. You might ask: “Why am I using iron armor and body, water and earth runes to train magic?” Your doing this because you can keep casting confuse on the Zamorak monk. Now, with your iron armor, the spell won’t work on him, but you’ll still get the xp for casting the spell and your character will continue to cast it. Thus, earning you unlimited magic xp from one spell. Unfortunately, this will only raise your magic level and won’t raise your hp at all. But when were done with this training we’ll move onto hp. Once you’ve gotten to 11 magic, switch to the spell “weaken” and continue to cast it on the Zamorak monk until your magic is 19. Now switch to curse and cast it on the Zamorak monk until you have whatever magic level you desire. And if you run out of runes, buy more. You could keep doing this until you get 99 magic if you wanted. If you chose to get 99 magic this way, you’d be level 30 something and you would have only 10 hp, but have lots of magic. So now onto step two of your magic training.

Before we do this, we need some stuff:

  • Blue wizard robes
  • Blue wizard hat
  • A blue skirt (doesn’t give any magic bonus, but matches blue wizard hat and robes)
  • Fire staff
  • And a lot of air runes and death runes. (Get four times more air runes than death runes) (fire runes unneeded because of staff

The spell you’ll be casting is “fire blast”. So go to the lesser demon in the wizards tower who is also in a cage.

Cast fire blast on him with your 99 magic or whatever your desired magic level was and watch as your hp level rockets up. Keep training your hp here until you have the hp you desire. Remember, if you run out of runes buy more!

This concludes my guide to training magic. I hope it was helpful to you.
