zoro894 - November 9, 2008 08:06 PM (GMT)

do you want to hit 20s and 30s but be liable to a lot of attacks?

or do want to be invincible but be hitting 1s and 2s?

just cuz you max out one doesn't mean you can't have another one higher...

i personally like def cuz you can make a lot more ppl mad in like clan wars or something lol if they can never hit on you... plus defense xp comes slower than strength xp (at least in my expereince in the game) so its a bigger achievement to have that... plus you see str capes 24/7... its a lot nicer to have something slightly more unique...

if you got high def u can repel like all attacks while slowly but surely getting hits off and eventually pking your opponent...

DEF FTW

Chuffa - November 9, 2008 10:19 PM (GMT)
They're all about the same, exp per hour wise, def is probably a tiny bit slower nowadays.

I'm saying defense to even the odds, but also because it helps in out ranging those melee punks! :P

zoro894 - November 9, 2008 10:39 PM (GMT)

Chuffa - November 9, 2008 11:01 PM (GMT)

Crash - November 9, 2008 11:19 PM (GMT)
I like the strength cape better, but only because I can't recall what the defence one looks like :P

Actually There is the cooking cape, and the thieving cape that are purple, or did you mean combat wise?

I personally like strength better, but defence is nice too if you don't train melee.

Kevinsaurus - November 10, 2008 03:11 AM (GMT)
srry yea i meant combat wise, not really a huge skiller person... purple combat cape is wat a meant, and it'd be awesome!
the cooking cape is too... popular don't like it and don't want it lol... theiving iuno lol... not a memb >.<

Str 100%.

When pking, offense is infinitely more important than defense. Picture this, a pure and a main fighting. Most of the time, the pure will win. The main will try to run away, but if the pure doesn't miss all that often, then the main would be dead since food has limited healing power. Say if the pure would lose, the pure could just walk away and since food would heal faster than the main would deal damage, even if the main hits his max every single time, there would be no chance that the pure would die.

During wars, one might think that 99 def could tank the enemy for a long time, which would help the clan a lot, but what's the use of defense if the enemy cannot hit you at all? With proper hugging, you won't even get hit by the enemy, so defense isn't very important. What's important is offense to kill off their 99 def guy really fast when he makes a mistake in hugging.

The third aspect I guess would be fun. The reason I quit my main a few years ago was because def was plain boring. You sit back and watch yourself fight. You rarely get damaged because of your high defense, and then you click on your food and you heal up again. There's simply no skill in pvp. When playing with pures, there's so much timing and mind games involved. The funnest time for me is when I'm brought to under 10 hp, so I'd be killed in the next hit, but I don't eat, I just keep hitting the enemy while he eats. If I was fighting a good pker, he might risk dying to a high hit just to get the last hit on me, so I have the predict it. When I do eat, I cancel the animation, throwing the opponent off at times, and there's all these other things like range/2hing with a pray switch that makes pvp so much more fun, and none of that can happen if you have def.

So that's why str > def

Techy - November 10, 2008 12:08 PM (GMT)
Well RSW, if a pure and a main fought, it would totally depend on levels. I suppose if they were close combat-level wise, yea, the pure would win. However if the main has a higher combat, I put my bets on the main. I was in the Clan War FFA arena when it first came out, and I was piled by 3 pures, all level 50-70. I pwned them all within 30 sec. Even if I wasn't pwning them with hits in the 20's or whatnot, I could hit them, they couldn't hit me.

Also if your tanking in a war, chances are your not going to be fighting at the same time. The other clan is going to stay on you. So basically all you do is hug until you die, letting the rest of the clan pile someone else from the opposite clan.

So personally: Defense ftw

Kerkennah - November 10, 2008 09:14 PM (GMT)
Well it really depends on what type of fighter you are. If you are a ranger, then defence would be better, but if your melee, then low def would be better.

def cape looks way cooler. blue/white. pwns green/red

zoro894 - November 10, 2008 10:02 PM (GMT)

The thing with defence is that you never really notice what it does.


I love strength.
