Should a Slayer Point system be introduced?

Post by Mike » Thu Jun 20, 2013 2:32 pm

PkHonor has its unique system of PkHonor points. As everyone knows, those points are gained when earning XP in any skill or killing players or NPC's. They can then be spent to purchase a vast number of items from the PkHonor point shop. They are also used for some other items, such as the korasi's sword, the slayer helmet and the ability to trade chaotic, morrigans, zuriel, vesta, statius, void and other items.

However, several people have suggested to also add a slayer point system, similar to the slayer point system used in RuneScape (and several other RSPS). This would give people slayer points when they kill monsters that they were given on a slayer task, and these points could then be used to purchase special items from a slayer master.

Now, since we already have coins, voting points, pkhonor points and donator credits, I'm not sure if we should really bring yet another currency into the game. On the other hand, it would give people more incentive to do the slayer skill and give people who do slayer something to work for rather than just xp and pkhonor points.

If the majority of players think slayer points should be introduced, we will certainly do so. We don't yet know what items would be available in the slayer shop, but we will decide that later. Only if the majority is in favor of course, otherwise the slayer points simply won't be added.

Yes add it.

As for the items, you could do similiar things as Runescape has.

Really depends on what kind of items would be available in said shops.

Items that aren't available in any other way. Probably items that are somewhat similar to what you'd find in the PkHonor point shop, which are useful in pVm or pVp. In a client update several months ago, hundreds of items were added to the game but none of them were given any use yet (apart from a few items that were used in hunter).
A few things I have in mind:
-> An 'ornamental kit', which can be used to turn an amulet of fury into an amulet of fury (or). Maybe this can give a slight bonus to some stats.
-> The phoenix necklace (unless we would add it as a monster drop)

I'll think of some others. Feel free to give your opinion on this.

It's one of the things I have planned when I will rework the slayer skill. I've postponed that for way too long now.
Or maybe I did it just to troll rick <3

In that case, yes.

Along with this shop, add some items such as the Gnome Scarf, Goggles, ect to the voting store, and make them untradable.

Frost dragons will probably be donator-only. As for Brawling gloves, I'd like to use those for the construction skill. Below is what I'd like to use them for:

In a player-owned house, you will receive more xp (and pkhonor points) when skilling, based on the furniture you have. For example, having a better cooking range will result in more cooking xp, having a better altar results in better prayer xp etc... however, offering bones on the alter in another person's house will not result in better xp, since everyone would then be able to get more xp while not spending any money on construction.

As soon as you built the best possible cooking range, you'll receive brawling gloves (cooking). As soon as you built the best altar, you'll receive brawling gloves (prayer) etc..
If you then equip the brawling gloves (cooking) while cooking on ANY range (whether it's in your house, someone else's house or anywhere else), you will receive the maximum xp bonus as if you were cooking on the highest level coking range in your own house.

It's just an idea I have though..
