Old School RuneScape introduces Deadman Mode

    
8

Are RuneScape’s 2007 servers not quite old school and hardcore enough for you? Well then, Jagex has a solution to help you keep your edge: new deadman PvP worlds.

Deadman mode, which is activated on three of Old Schoool RuneScape’s servers, is a more intense PvP setting with fully open world PvP and harsh death penalties: “If you die to a player, you will lose the 28 most valuable stacks of items from your bank to a bank raid, all items that you have on your person, and half of the experience you have gained in any unprotected skills,” Jagex warns.

Even getting offed by a PvE mob will set players back some as well, although there are limited ways to protect skill progression and personal items in this mode.

Other features in deadman mode include being able to loot an enemy player’s bank after killing him or her, faster progression than normal servers, and a special PvP currency that can be used to procure a deadman outfit.

Sorenthaz They actually revamped the death system a couple months ago where now no one can take your items on death. Instead Death (the Reaper) takes your items. You can choose to rush to your grave stone before it disintegrates to reclaim your items for free, or you can just pay Death to get your items back. Paying to get your items back from Death isn’t too expensive either, it’s not the full item value but I believe it’s something like 10% of the value? They implemented this system due to DDOS attacks or server outages.

“Man, our lowest-population server has too many people on it. What can we create that will go even lower?”

I like that Jagex has been adding more options for those who wish to play differently.

Now add a softcore/PvE server where we don’t drop anything on death pls.

Crackjaw Exactly! If there isn’t an option to gank someone in the character creation screen and then corpse camp ’em , why bother playing. Real tension! Real consequences!

Wow. Pretty impressed they’re doing this! Nice to have options that make death more meaningful. I skipped the Darkscape server, but can’t wait to give this one a whirl.

That’s not nearly hardcore enough.  For pvp death they should delete your entire account, fine you $50,000, and send a bouncer to your house to kick you in the nuts.  This stuff is so carebear.
