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.
Activate your quick prayers so you hit harder. Even when no arming, you still miss an opponent with 70 def a lot. Let the fight go on, watching as your character deals and receives lots of damage. When your character hits hard and brings your opponent’s health bar to about 1/8 (the less bar left, the better), click on the rune 2h and click on your opponent. If you’re lucky, the 2h will also hit hard and your opponent will die. But pking isn’t that easy. More likely, your opponent won’t die and will continue eating until they aren’t in danger anymore, then resume attacking you. In that case, if the 2h didn’t kill them, immediately switch your quick prayers off to conserve prayer and change your weapon back to the scim. When the scim is about to attack again switch your quick prayers on.
Now a good rule of thumb regarding when YOU eat is dependent on your opponent’s max hit. Eat at or below their max hit with 2h. At 85 strength it’s 26, 91 str is 29, etc. If you appear to eat at too high hp (such as 1/3 of the hp bar) other people will start calling you a safer and start eating at high hp themselves or running from the fight. You would generally eat at higher hp on a strength pure because they can hit up to 31, and level 99 rangers can range/2h, with the 2h being a near-instant hit. For example, if you’re at 35 hp, you wouldn’t eat. But the ranger hits a 15 and you’re down to 20 hp, and they hit a 20 with 2h before you’ve had a chance to eat. You need good reflexes to survive range/2hers. Another case is if some melee person keeps hitting high 20s with their scim. When their 2h fails to kill you, and you’re left at like 3 hp, keep eating until your hp is back up to 30 and attack them again. Also, when eating, make sure you turn your quick prayers off because you won’t be attacking your opponent as you eat.
Sometimes, during the heat of battle, you may want to take risks. Both of you might hit hard and bring each other down to around 10 hp. Instead of eating, you may want to pull out the 2h and try to finish them off because they won’t be able to hurt you if they die. If they also take the 2h out, and they had hit you first with the scim, then you can either take the risk and let them hit you first (hoping that they don’t kill you) and then hit them, or eat instead and go back to a scim. But if you had hit first and both of you take out 2h, then you will also strike first with the 2h and possibly kill them. It’s possible to eat instantly after you strike by clicking on food right when you see the 2h animation. This is useful when you didn’t kill your opponent and they 2h you. You’ll have a better chance of surviving.
