  3. Are firebombs a cheap way to beat invaders?
4 years ago#1
Started a new game because I accidently attacked one of the blacksmiths and didn't know he could forgive me blah blah blah killed him.

Anyway, no more than an 30 minutes into my new game and I get invaded twice.

First time by a small little player with a katana, then next by some big magic type of player who could drain my shield power then throw lighting balls at me.

Either way, I won. Fire bombed them both because all I had was a morning star. But I'm sure this tactic is frowned upon?

Frowned upon? Hah! If anything I imagine you're a hero to many of the low level grief'ed! Strong work and keep hucking firebombs!

The way I see it, outside of "regulated" duels in Kiln, nothing is frowned upon when trying to protect yourself and game from invaders. ESP if those invaders are low-level griefers.

At low levels do whatever it takes to protect yourself. Your best defence is learning about pvp and getting a hold of a decent weapon.

I say frowned upon because some could see it as being chicken, Besides, isn't being invaded random?

Like you don't get to choose who you invade, so its a risk to invade in the first place?

nope. darkwraith = anything goes. and they're probably using ridiculous lightning weapons anyway.


dung is pretty useful against griefers too.

tee-hee, he said dung...


Yeah I'm a darkwraith, but I hate it when I get a lower level or someone who doesn't know how to pvp ie. holding shield up with lock on or jump attacking in a narrow hallway..

See how far throwing fire bombs takes you at 107.

Nothing else is working for me against backstabbers, lolgangbangers and twinks!  I'll try anything once.  I tend to keep away from invasions these days if I can.  The people who have managed to massage their stats and equipment have ruined it.
