Should the hitpoint bar overlay (with exact current & max HP) also apply to PvP?

Yes, show a hitpoint bar in PvP just like in PvM, displaying the exact current & max HP

HP bar overlay in PvP

Post by Mike » Fri Jul 23, 2021 7:26 pm

I have implemented a hitpoint bar overlay as suggested in viewtopic.php?t=82999 (see image below), but I was wondering if this should also apply to PvP. Players will be able to toggle this on or off (it'll be on by default) and it might be quite an advantage to see the exact current and max hitpoints of your target, rather than a rough visual indication through the HP bar above someone's head.

To clarify, the shown hitpoints only update each time your opponent is hit, not when they eat or heal in any way.

Let me know what you guys prefer.

What happens if your opponent eats, will the HP bar update instantaneously? If so, I'm not a fan. I think it should update the current HP on the bar everytime your opponent gets hit and only then.

Not sure if it's clear what I'm saying, if not I'll add some video showing how it works on RuneLite.

Yeah, if it is implemented this is how it should be done for sure.

It does not update when your opponent eats or heals in any way, only when being hit.

17 yes, 1 no, 4 don't care. I guess that's pretty clear. Thank you all for your input!
