The performance of KO and reKO in this chart are so close that the red line is almost exactly on top of the green line. You can see a hint of the green line just above the red line at poorer penetrations. Again the performance of KO and reKO in this chart are so close that the red line is almost exactly on top of the green line.

KO does better at extermely high and low penetrations. The indexes were improved since this chart was created and REKO now has better results at higher penetrations. KO slightly beats reKO. At Wynn's current estimated penetration, reKO has KO has a tiny edge at 26 cards and reKO pulls ahead at deeper penetrations. Which alas are mostly in the past.

Sims were also run with H17, DAS and a spread of with similar results. I didn't bother with an eight deck chart. However, that goes against the one index theme of REKO. Again, the raw data behind these charts can be found at reKO Blackjack Tables.

However, the ordinary blackjack has rather low combat bonuses in both damage and accuracy wise the exception to this is the maple blackjack having the same accuracy with its maple counterparts. Offensive blackjack requires a certain Attack level, as well as a similar interval Thieving level to be equipped, progressing higher as the type of blackjack changes.

On the other hand, the defensive blackjacks require appropriate Defence and Thieving levels in order to be wielded. The ordinary blackjack only requires a certain Thieving level to be wielded.

To use the blackjacks the player must first have completed the Feud quest and have the necessary Thieving level to pickpocket either villagers , bandits , Menaphite thugs , coshing volunteers and the advanced pickpocketing trainer. Once the requirements are met and the player is wielding a blackjack, they select 'Lure' on the right-click menu.

A successful knock-out will reward the player with a small amount of Thieving experience with the exception of the Thieves' Guild NPCs. The player can then safely pickpocket the unconscious NPC for further Thieving experience.

Bandits and Menaphites cause damage for every failure, which can quickly add up. There is no bank in Pollnivneach, still there are a few options. You can boost your life point regeneration rate with items, familiars, and prayers like Rapid Heal and this will undoubtedly help reduce the frequency you need to eat.

There is a kebab store in Pollnivneach which sells kebabs and super kebabs at a cheap price, however both are somewhat unreliable and buying from the shop is a slow process. You may also talk to Ali the Barman and purchase wine from him for very cheap prices. There is also a general store you can use to unnote food that you brought, which is the quickest option for obtaining food.

Or you can simply use the magic carpet to return to a bank and withdraw food. Either way, the money from pickpocketing will easily cover all expenses. A ring of slaying or fused full slayer helmet makes it easy to return to Pollnivneach, using the Sumona option. You can also move your Player-owned house to Pollnivneach, and then use the kitchen to heal in for free, or die in your dungeon, which will result in all stats recovered.

Coshing volunteers and the advanced pickpocketing trainer in the Thieves' Guild negates the need of healing, dealing damage of only 1 life point when failed. Thus this will minimise any cost of food needed. However, one will be stunned if a failed knock-out is executed. When you fail to knock-out a Pollnivneach victim, you will be attacked. If one was to quickly click pickpocket, the victim will negate the failure and will not attack. This is a great method to use when you are running out of food.
