But, I personally would not call PvP in the current combat system "dead combat," even though it's an individual decision. I'm inclined to RS gold agree that fighting many non-boss monsters using the current system can be pretty boring but it will likely never change.
EoC won't make fighting non-boss monsters fun... It's going to force you to spam abilities. I've PvP'ed during the game, and it's amazing. In beta, I'm PvP'ing... This is the time to be a fan. Everyone gets Full Torva/Pernix/chaotics whatever.
However, no one ventures in the wild with the intention of risking Torva as well as pernix. Thus, you could have one hit at a 4000 when you prank in rune or something that is similar to 4000 like just stun them and cheap OSRS GP hit them few times. They'll surely die. I'm not interested with PvP'ing any longer, which is a pity - other than, obviously, I'm using OP'd out swifts/goliaths.
