It seems with the combat system the terminology has changed, but it's not exactly the same thing.
Now most of you a probably thinking, Oh yeah, i got a pure, he's 1 def. Oh yeah my mate has a rune pure. OH hey man i got def or a barrows pure.
Well that's pretty broad isn't it? So is pure now having an extreme of one thing?
For those who don't know, the original meaning of Pure was 1 magic.
An account with 40 attack, high strength, and 1 defence, was called a prayer beast. or a PB. Funnily enough even if they didn't have prayer.
A very popular staking build and pking build was a "Pure Plater" . It was someone who had done dragon slayer without magic experience. It was impossible. Except for a short period of time when the map pieces were tradeable. And also it was added you could bribe wormtail in runescape 2.
It was quite common to see alot of pkers and players with 1 magic, staying "Pure".
On a a similar note where do you think pure came from? And i honestly don't know for sure, but i have a theory, i've been playing since 2002 and never found out how the name came.
When runescape was originally released there was good and evil magic. Perhaps pure meant to not choose either one. I mean i guess it sounds better then "Neutrals" I mean imagine if everyone had Rune Neutrals today? Haha, anyway disregard the theory if you find it silly :P
The other pet peeve over terminology i have is PJ. You know what it means?
Pjing = Pile Jumping, same stuff.
Pile jumping is where you attack someone whilst they are looting.
The loot on the ground used to be called the pile.
And in runescape 1 Pile jumping was very annoying and you usually died, because you were locked into 3 rounds of combat, and if you had survived those 3 rounds, you wouldn't have a chance to eat and loot. So at high level pking, you technically had to last through 6 rounds of combat. Which pretty much meant you were boned.
Anyway thankyou for taking the time to read this little post/rant. Am i right? Am i wrong?
I still think pure is a person 1 magic, always have and always will.
And pile jumping is attacking someone once they've killed someone else.
What do you think?
Am i right?
Am i wrong?
What does pure mean?
What does pure mean now?
