Halloween is approaching so we’re going to do a lot of Halloween related posts to get into the Halloween spirit! For years Runescape has always done a pretty good job providing fun mini games for us to play around all Holidays and Halloween has always been one of the best. Who could forget the year that we got H’Ween masks or how about the year when we got skeleton costumes. Our main question is, what was your favorite year for Halloween and why? Was it because of the specific mini game that year? Was it because of what you got? Let us know in the comments below!
Happy October Runelocus! We’re coming closer and closer to the day we all love, Halloween! This is the time for pumpkin pie, hoodie sweatshirts and who could forget the best candy of all time candy corn. We’ve added a new logo to the Runelocus forums and main website that represents Halloween. In the comments below let us know what you’ll be doing this Halloween!
Ever wonder who the first player in Runescape to get a 99 was? Meet Everdred, not only was he the first Runescape player to get a 99 but he as the first player to get the levels 80 and 90 in any skill as well. The skill that he finally got 99 in was woodcutting and at the time very few people even come close to what he accomplished. Although he is only a level 87 to this date he had over 27,000,000 (27 million) xp in Woodcutting. He’s been inactive since 2004 but some people thinks he may come back.
What was your first 99 in Runescape?

Would you be interested in participating in a Teamspeak channel dedicated to Runelocus? You could use it to talk about Runescape Private Servers, coordinate and plan PKing events, meet other people who play the same server as you and discuss general things like movies, TV shows and more. Would this be something you’d be interested in? Get in on the discussion here!
Don’t you love waking up in the morning to new messages? Especially when the message is one from Jagex saying that you where banned? This is defiantly a screen that we all dread and usually what follows this is sadness, then anger then sadness. You then say that you’re leaving Runescape forever you that it’s time for you to grow up. Guess where you are 2 weeks later? You’re on a fresh account in Lumbridge starting all over of course!
Castle Wars is arguably the most played and best Runescape minigame ever. Jagex released Castle Wars on December 14, 2004. The objective is simple, each team has a flag and the other teams goal is to break into the opposite teams base and steal the flag. Runescape did at it’s own twists and unique features but it’s pretty obvious they based the minigame off of Capture The Flag. In 2009 Castle Wars was voted the most popular player vs player minigame in a poll hosted on the official Runescape website. Here is an old castle wars video!
Although there are no skill or quest requirements to participate in the game, you’d generally see a variety of different high level players battling it out. For the most part lower levels would quickly be killed and wouldn’t be able to enjoy it as much. Share the memories you have of playing castlewars down in the comments below!
The other night the Runelocus team was thinking about how we could improve the website and we the Runelocus fans and general community came up. We started to think about how many of you guys have owned an RSPS versus how many of you guys are players. Let us know using this poll what your answer is and include in the comments below (if you want of course) how active your server was.
Everyone wants to be the best Runescape or in most of our cases Runescape Private Sever PKers we can possibly be, but how can we achieve that? We see a lot of elite pkers such as Elvemage, Kids Ranqe and many other legends and all of us want to be like them. We’re going to give you the basic tips you need to know to start your journey.
1. Pick A Style
Runescape PKing has evolved over the years and today we see a variety of different styles of PKing. We have bridding, melee, range tanking, mage tanking and a bunch of different less known styles as well. We recommend for you to pick a style and stick with it until you master it. Are you a deep wildy PKer? Going on melee probably isn’t the best idea because if someone has mage then they can farcast you. It’s important to pick a style that is appropriate for where you plan on PKing. For beginners we recommend using melee or range tanking. This will allow you to deal a lot of damage while still playing it safe.
It’s important to practice and master your style just as much as PKing. We’d recommend that you join a clan or get some friends and work on your technique. Switching, eating and using spells all at the right times are a crucial part of PKing. When you practice at a place such as duel arena you’re not putting yourself in risk of dying and loosing your items but you’re still getting practice in and improving as a PKer.
3. Stay Aware
We can’t stress how important it is to stay aware while PKing, we know that you’re concentrating on your fight but there may be someone waiting to rush you when you kill the other person. It’s extremely important to look around and make sure no ones standing around with a special attack weapon wielded. It’s also very important to be aware of lures as these are all very frustrating ways of dying.
4. Inventory Setup
This is something that is often overlooked by players, setting up your inventory is crucial to being a good PKer. You need to make sure that everything is in a position where you can easily access it. Also make sure to always put everything in the same place as eventually it’ll become muscle memory where items are and you’ll become a much faster and efficient PKer.
Remember the good old times in Runescape when you could go PKing and even if you didn’t usually PK you still had a chance? Those times are over, you need to make sure that your account is optimized for PKing. I see people all the time who don’t have the proper stats and die quickly. If you’re a melee fighter then you shouldn’t have 99 range and 80 strength. I personally like to keep my strength the highest, followed by defense and then attack the lowest. This allows me to take the least damage while outputting the most.
