RuneScape F2P and P2p Wilderness Pvp/pking Guide

WARNING: This is a huge guide, it may take quite a while to load. The first part you see when the scroll bar fills a 3rd of the browser is NOT the whole thing. When it’s 1/15ths of the browser, then it’s fully loaded.

An EXTREMELY large and detailed guide on how to pvp without a pure in RuneScape. This guide is much more detailed than those small guides that just tell you what to do to train a pure. It tells you exactly how to pvp and many strategies on it, as well as what to wear and preparation, even time management. It explains the mechanics of bounty worlds too. It’s NOT similar to the others.


You ever wanted to learn how to pk well? Maybe once you went to a pvp or bounty world and got owned as some noob near you level starts to quickly KO you. Watched a video of those legendary pkers such as 1item Dbow? Here’s a guide on how to do it in both free worlds and members’ worlds! In this guide, you will learn about pking and how to dominate the wilderness.

Since February 1, 2010, the wilderness, and staking, has returned in all its former glory!

As you’re very well aware, main accounts are better suited to killing monsters and getting all stats up rather than killing other players near their combat level who may have much higher offensive stats. These players, called pures, were specially created and trained to have low or no defence and high range, attack, and strength.

But we’re not going to create a new account and train everything but defence. Defence helps monsters hit you less, enabling you to eat less often, bank less often, and kill more monsters when training. So training a pure is harder than you think. They get hit a LOT with only 1 defence so they have a much harder time training than normal players with at least 70 defence.

But even though pures are theoretically more powerful as pkers, there are several reasons why you shouldn’t use one. The majority of pures tend to be low leveled, around the bare minimum of 20 combat up to 60-70. But just about EVERY pker out there in that level range is ALSO a pure, which means the only people you fight are pures. So basically you create a pure for the sake of fighting other pures. Since they’re low leveled in defence, they don’t (and can’t) wear any armor better than leather body and green d’hide chaps in both free-to-play and members. The loot is horrible. Everyone uses the same strategy to pk: range/2h in f2p, shoot enchanted diamond and dragon bolts in p2p. Seems pretty boring, huh?

As a result, the only good kind of pking is up in the 80+s on main accounts only. The majority of players there have at least 60-70 defence and do not drop junk when they die.

    Excellent guide, but there is just one mistake. Spell book swap is in the Lunar spell book, so you cant use ice barrage in conjunction with teleblock. You could try full voids with zamorak godsword and teleblock, though =P.

    Ty i fixed it

    Nice, thanks a lot. But Skybolt25 is actually the one who is wrong… unless there is a time restriction on spellbook swap. You can first swap, then tele-block, swap again ice barrage once, and then kill with range/melee/supreme ultimate weapon of mass destruction/fixed device/cannon (not really)/your head. Or just barrage once then use a GS. But yeah, you can do that, so you were right unless you meant to keep barraging.

    u get owned because at 58 strength u cant hit high enough to kill anyone.

    at your level, afford some membership because free players cant do sht

    do monkey madness for the ability to use a dragon scim and train attack to 70 and strength as high as you can because it’s the most useful. leave def at 60. get 43 prayer. then go pking.

    i have been member for a month but are magic or attack not useful?

  12. vaibhav
    Posted November 19, 2009 at 10:16 am

    also I want to pk in non-mem only and I want to use magic or meele only

  13. Posted November 21, 2009 at 6:49 pm

    attack is very useful especially in f2p fights when you’re no arming because even at 77 attack i hit loads of 0s so the higher attack you have the more you hit. for magic its kinda useless in f2p unless ur gonna tele but that loses you ep so u dont wanna train it. its max hit in f2p is 16. only in mems u can ice barrage and stuff

  14. Posted December 10, 2009 at 1:51 am

    the scim to godsword strategy is the most fail strategy ever

  15. Posted December 13, 2009 at 2:15 pm

    You can get good EP if you go to the Dark Warrior’s FOrtress and in the last room. SO by the time a strong Pker gets close to u u can use home teleport and instead u will go to edgeville(Bouny World) It would be better to close all doors in the fortress after going to the final room (left from the first room)

    Pvp is ruined because of terms such as safer and what not. I don’t see safing in the rules

    I just would like to mention another small strategy in no arm fights; When a player is at low hp, the attacker hits once more with his scim for a fast KO that doesn’t have to be predicted by seeing their scim hit.
