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. =(
