Make combat XP lamps give HP?

Postby Mike » Fri Oct 20, 2017 11:59 am

One of the more irritating things about playing PkHonor as new player is the fact that you cannot set your HP. You can use the combat XP lamps for 3 99's, but your HP will always remain at 10 HP until you train your combat.

Getting 99 HP isn't *that* hard, takes less than a few hours, but it sure would motivate new players to keep playing longer if they could get right into the fight. Therefore, I would like to suggest that every time you use a combat XP lamp, you also gain 4.35M HP XP (so 3 lamps give just enough XP for 99 HP).
Lowering HP level is free, so for the one or two players who don't want extra HP, they can still lower it as they like.

Ez-scape maybe, but let's think of the new players and how much we want to get rid of all their annoyances within their first minutes of playing. The more of them we can compel to stay, the better off the whole server will be.

I think that if changing something will benefit the playing-quality for new players, it's for the better. As long as it doesn't make a severe difference to the rest of the community I don't see a reason not to.

Yes. :thumbsup: It can take an hour or two to get 99 HP. Add prayer to that and it's a solid 4-5 hour grind to main PK if you have no prior knowledge of the server.

Of course. ::pure is simply the old and discontinued alternative of the combat XP lamps, so the bonus HP XP would apply to that as well.

We may want to grant everyone who has already used the combat XP lamps (or ::pure) the free HP XP as well, but we're not entirely sure yet.

Just 10x all the combat xprate for first 10 hours tbh, leveling up is a part of the satisfying things about rs/ps

Sounds like a fair compromise.
