Hi there!

I'm an old player of RuneScape from 2005, played on and off since then and recently come back to play the new tournament world's to check out new gear. Overall, I quit out of frustration of the constant grind required if you're a pker and you die.

One of my pet hates used to be how if you kill someone that had a Tentacle whip you only get the 400k Kraken tentacle whereas when you kill someone with an abyssal whip you would get a solid 2.6m PK.

In general, it's harder to kill someone with the better item, so you'd think you'd be more rewarded for this? But apparently no. This isn't a problem in edgeville pking where you can simply select your opponent, and choose to fight someone with abyssal whip risk instead of Kraken whip. However in deep wilderness it is a problem where most fights are spontaneous(and much more exciting!!), You can't select it. Thinking of the logic of someone going to PK in deep wilderness, risking a Kraken whip Vs an abyssal whip is almost the same cost, so why would they use the lower tier version? This presents a problem for the person who would get their loot. Often in the wilderness you have two pkers fighting each other pking the tentacle whip but only getting a measly 400k drop.

I propose Kraken shards. This would drop the Kraken tentacle + the Kraken shards equivalent to the amount of charges left on the whip. This would ensure the person killing the pker would get a decent amount of tentacle shards to use.

I believe this is completely fair, as it means that as pkers are constantly killing eachother back and forth, they are carrying the costs of buying abyssal whips continuously amongst themselves and the person walking away with the constant free cash is the abyssal demon slayers.

What are the shards, how do i use them, who would i give them to? why kraken shards and not whip chunks?

also the abyssal whip has a fairly low drop rate

The shards could just be fed to another Kraken tentacle to increase its charges up to the max charges.

You can call it Kraken shards or whip chunks, it's the same item. They'd just feed into a tentacle whip and/or I suggest an actual kraken tentacle for a partially charged tentacle whip.

I would be for it. however a decent ratio would have to be made. 15% of the current charges? it can't be too many.

Wait, why? Why 15%? I don't think it's fair you'd only get 15% of the current charges? There are pkers who want to PK in a tent whip dying literally like 20 times per day or pking that much. Is it really fair that we lose our charges for no reward? Then pkers simply revert to using the inferior abyssal whip against fights because it's worth more money. Isn't this very counterproductive?
