PKs are able to help and, unlike Non Player Killers, also harm, kill and loot other players who have also converted. Player killers appear as red dots on the Radar, hence the term “go red” as an expression for turning PK.
Although AC does not have content that is restricted to non-player killers only, there are some dungeons and quests that can only be accessed by a player killer (see below).
- Darktide is a PvP server. All Darktide player characters begin as player killers, and cannot change to non-player killers.
- See the Darktide server page for links to allegiances, forums and other information.
Alternatives to Classic PK
- Introduced in the Groundswell event, Player Killer Lite allows non-player killers to temporarily harm each other without the penalty of Vitae or dropping items on death.
- Introduced in the From Darkness, Light event, Olthoi Play is a feature that gives players a way to jump straight into PK without the need to first acquire levels and equipment.
