Player Spotlight: Kasuka

It’s amazing how many ways there are to play Lineage. You can be the power leveler, aiming for nothing more then the joy of hitting the big 5-0. You can be the trader, often seen on world chat doing nothing but buying and selling. You can be the goof, who sits around talking about pie and rain dancing and writing “If We Really Role-played In Lineage” lists. Or, or you could be the PK.

The PK, or Player Killer, is often looked upon as the scourge of society. They use powerful weapons and armor, are often accused of picking on younger players and are generally the most hazed group of all. So how is it that Kasuka, though a mage of high level, can go out and kill tons of innocent (or guilty, he doesn’t care) players with naught but 2 AC and a Staff of Sorcery?

First of all, lets travel to Kasuka’s roots. He started back at the end of the .77 server, the server that came before Dep. When it was wiped he moved to Dep with the rest of the Lineage community, rolling a mage named Vek with the amazing stats of 17 strength, 18 wisdom and 18 intelligence. Woah, Nelly!

He enjoyed the first updates when the Mainland was added (Yes, he remembers the Talking Island-only days) and loved Giran, though after that he thinks the game went to trash, partly because of the updates but mostly because of the pay-to-play that came into hand. But when Lineage went commercial he didn’t quit, he did something worse: He started a long line in the industry of terminating the lives of others... also known as PKing.

Kasuka’s secret to PKing is not his equipment (or lack thereof) but rather the company of his friends. He goes in a group of around fifteen Intelligence mages with Staves of Sorcery and juiced up on Wisdom potions. These mages know what their class was made for and work well with magic, using a mix of sunburst and cone of cold to counter rings of their opponents. Kasuka himself finds sunburst to be his favorite (though he has all attack spells but Decay Potion), having the advantage of being fast and sometimes causing his victim to lag.

The group gets some rather good drops, the best of which so far was a +9 n-Katana which they sold. “We sell all items then at the end we split the cash” Kasuka says. There is a lot of trust in his pledge, something needed for their joint-PK venture. But with the mages carrying nothing more then their Staves of Sorcery, Wisdom potions, Orange potions and Escape scrolls what do they do with all this money? They have secret characters to spend it on, of course!

Kasuka’s PK team attacks without prejudice, hitting everyone but the members of Paldo, that pledge being a good friend of many of their members. “Lineage’s alliances are pathetic because pledges and people are only in it for personal gain.” One might say the same about Kasuka and friends PKing together, yet they are not group-PKing for safety, rather for fun.

He has a few tips for the PKers who dream of someday being a Brutus or a SharpArrows of their own time. First of all, “PKing is like a good drop in an event: sometimes you get it sometimes you don’t.” Which is, quite sadly, true. Also, “If you are going to PK with a group you must trust them.” You wouldn’t want your own friends turning on you, especially if you are carrying something important! And last of all, perhaps most important for the group PKer, always remember “Group PKing is not safety. Larger groups mean larger responsibilities.”

Kasuka....hhahaha I have some funny stories, back when I was noob I seriously hated this guy. His elf ElvenArrows annoyed the crap out of me and I tried to take him on once at the Hiene siege but got beat up pretty bad. This was all due to the fact that he picked on my friend in the pledge at the time Scrubs. I amazed to see him on at LC spotlight, especially since at one point in the game i seriously hated him, and I never really thought he would amount to anything at all. Well kas, maybe now you would like to try me ^^. Times have changed, but congrats man, and just know that now I would be nearly impossible to destroy 0.0

aahh i remember the funniest mage pk group MageQueen,Eastpak and ALLIN always in goblin which has superior fast magic and whats best they hided in the walls of mlc being small and unlike other morphs like dwarf that jump or make much noises u wouldent be able to catch them unless u drag ur mouse around the walls but u be dead with 3-4 erupt mages hitting u.

on the note of the interview it rocked i had fight with his elf ElvenArrows when he was in hunghingsociety it was him and another elf which was a newb forgot hit name elven canceled me and they attack me orentower the other guy quit his name was umm.... KrazyElven or ELvenKrazy something like that.

What about Dick (Lineage, Knight, GaMeMaSTeR) and Briel (GodOfMagic, HelloKitty)? Them, among many other PKs from the .77 server have killed thousands of players. Brutus and SharpArrows(?) are just some of those who followed the real PKs.

Hey drathen...are you saying that whoever PK's a lot of ppl in a game first is the god of PK's?

Then I should search for beta games and start to PK. Then I will be a legend.

Note how stupid that sentence is, and just comes from your logic.
