Surviving PK encounter as low level

First of all, the age old advice: STAY CALM. First of all, take note of the surrounding, and then shift click the attacking person. Look at his level.

The next part is divided into sections for easy viewing.

Use healing spells and/or runes. Don't attack him, then you can't hide in the protection zones!

>Other guy is roughly the same level as you

>>You are near a PZ zone
Run towards the zone. You are probably in a town, shout for help. DON'T FIGHT.

>>You are in a dungeon
You are probably trapped. Your only choices are to fight him or to drop to the next dungeon, which is qutie dangerous. One possible, but hard to use tactic is to climb or drop to the next level, and when he drops down (Watch the battle screen) you go back! He will have to follow you. Hopefully, he will tire and go away. You will sustain damage though, but you can whisper to your friends and ask for help- Hopefully they can arrive in time to help. High level friends, mind you! Possibly using field runes (Fire or poison is good) but you will trap yourself too.

>>You are in a open field
Not much choice here- Just run, and shout for help. Whisper your friends if possible. Fighting is fine here, but unless your equipment is very good, I don't think this is advisable. This is up to you however, and runes are good here if you are carryign any.

>>You are in a town far from the PZ zones
Here's an interesting situation. You best bet is to run for the PZ zone, but shouting for help has much better implications. Also, fighting MIGHT be good here if you're darn sure you can beat him.

>Other guy is slightly (6 levels or so) higher than you
>>You are near a PZ zone
DO NOT FIGHT. Run for the PZ zone! Shouting for help is good, but won't have as much effect.

>>You are in a dungeon
Use the same up-down technique, but you must have very good reflexes and internet speed for this. If he lands a single hit on you, you'll take quite a bit of damage, and you can't heal very well using this technique and runes of lifefluids. The only really effective healing technique here is to use healing spells. Fields will have less effect too, if he's higher level, he can take the damage without too much fear. Fields are particularly useless against people using runes or distance attack, unless you can run round a corner or out of range.

>>You are in a open field
I'd say you're in a spot of trouble. Running doesn't have too much effect. If he's using distance, try to run around obstacles and such, if he's meleeing you, you may have to try the up-down technique. Shouting for help doesn't have much effect, but you can try. Also, whispering to your friends should have the best effect here. Attacking with distance might be your only chance is all else fails.

>>You are in a town far from the PZ zones
Shout for help and run for the PZ zone. Don't attack either.

>Other guy is way higher than you
>>You are near a PZ zone
Heal and run for it. Shouting for help will have little effect: If he's that much higher than you, tehre will be less high level people willing to sustain the damage to help you.

>>You are in a dungeon
Use the same up-down technique, but you must have very good reflexes and internet speed for this. If he lands a single hit on you, you'll take quite a bit of damage, and you can't heal very well using this technique and runes of lifefluids. The only really effective healing technique here is to use healing spells. Fields will have less effect too, if he's higher level, he can take the damage without too much fear. Fields are particularly useless against people using runes or distance attack, unless you can run round a corner or out of range.

>>You are in a open field
Almost all methods are useless now. He can probably out fight, out distance and out run you. But there is one possible method: Yell at him. No expeletives, however. Try something like:
"STOPPIT", "I TOOK SO LONG TO WALK HERE", "AND NOW YOU WANT TO SEND ME BACK" etc. etc.
Impress him enough with your sheer irritation, and he may just back off! This has worked very well for me for 3 times, and I'm sure it'd work for you too.

>>You are in a town far from the PZ zones
Run for the PZ zones, while complaining to him as in the previous method.
