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.

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!
