    *Sigh* WTFPK PK'D

    I know theres a R.I.P thread but I figured since I didn't die of natural causes I should make a new post, and while I'm pretty sure no one cares, I just need to post this to vent it a bit. Anyways, so I was on my level 16 necromancer, leveling in the sewers and was killing radament and then SNAP, insta deat, first thing I look for is what killed me. Was it a monster? no, I got WTFPK Pk'd. It's the first character that I've lost to pk, but I really didn't think it would happen to me, and I REALLY didn't think it would be by a stupid 3rd party program. NOR did I think that someone would get a kick out of pking a level 16 with no gear.

    Luckily I had nothing good so I really didn't lose anything. I was just VERY mad that someone would do something so childish.

    You're naive I'm afraid. With the "efficiency" of tppk compared to legit pk's and the sheer number of tppk'ers out there even if you're not a gambeling man you can't deny that the odds are stacked hugely against you (us whatever).

    I am sorry for your lose though, I know how you feel. It sucks. Luckaly a rebuild shouldn't take too long and you will be back on your feet in no time!

    While this topic is open, I feel it's a good time to vent the unfourtanate demise of a lvl 5 sorc of mine...

    'Twas a cold a misty day on the stony field, and 'twas a cruel and wicked high level player who made a tp into the stony field, that just so happened to be surronded by rakanishu and his crew. Well, that very same high level did speak to me, and did say, 'my tp', and I went through, and in that next instant, I did feel the wrath of the carvers... Sigh.

    I missed that level 5 sorc, 'till I remade a minute later.

    Tat could be a tppk'er who had lost his godly tppk character to some legit pker, and his urge for tppk'ing rose, therefore he had to tppk someone of low level. OMG... the sanity of tppk'er dropped.

    Sry abt ur loss, start fresh, lv16 is something like 2-3 hrs

    can someone explain tppk to me? I don't think this thing was around 4 years ago when I last played.

    It probably was, do you remember fearing for your life every time a sorc cast a Hydra? Anyway, blizzard fixed that but others reared their head.

    tppk stands for Town Portal Player Kill. It can be done "manually" but most of the time the tppk'er simply has a 3rd party program that is activated by a hot-key.

    How it works:
    the tppker parties with his victim. It can be done with a few spells, but we'll go with Ice Blast in this case. When the victim and the tppker are close on the map the tppker presses his hot-key.

    The 3rd part program then automatically fires a few Ice Blasts at the victim and while they are flying through the air towards the victim the program casts a Town Portal and takes the tppker to town, it then hostiles the victim, which makes the Ice Blasts still flying towards the victim very dangerous.

    The ice blasts hit the victim, the victim dies.

    Tppkers are almost always high level characters pretending to be helping out lower level characters. They generally use Cold spells on sorcs because a high level Cold Mastery can make the victims resists extreamly poor which helps to counter act the 1/6 PvP pentalty. However it can be done by others. Windy Druids, Amazons, Assasins, Sorcs with fire spells etc.
