    Are you sure you're seeing attacks while you're opted in a guild land? At your level you'll obviously be hunted by higher levels.

    If you're being defeated by normal battle though, keep in mind that at your level there are some 20.0 BSI players.

      I am being defeated in normal battle, like all the time, sometime I win from all the attackers, but most time I lose.....
      I really need to make my bsi to 12 (that's my goal). And 20 bsi?!?!?

        Yeah. Players who have played for years just stayed at that level and prayed to the Demi-Powers forever and ever.

        You also may be getting defeated by just normal 10.0 BSI Players. Keep in mind that usually those players don't go for a balanced build like you have. Most players with BSI 10 are usually all out offense or all out defense. So you may be getting defeated by level 200 Players with 2000+ Attack.

          My advice at your current levels is bank your money, hide when you can and ignore your feed. With your current numbers, you are chum in the water.

              Its not like the good old days before IA and runes. Those days 7 bsi was pretty good with like 10 being really good! and now clintw said it best as for the 7 bsi, "you are chum in the water."

                This game has been around for 6 years now, lots of people have been playing the entire time. In short: "Most of this game can beat you." A raw BSI of 7 is a great launching point for a PvP oriented build. You are going to get beat a lot. Especial as you move up in the battle ranks. Once you hit level 80 the game opens you up to being able to be attacked by anyone (current max level is over 8500). Dont heal yourself until you want to use your stamina.

                    Depending on you energy/stamin ratio's, demi blessings (provided you have enough energy to quest) are your best source of Bsi improvement

                      Well, to be fair, in this point of the game, I don't think it's easily obtainable for you to try to go into heavy BSI building. If you just want better battle effectiveness, then going into an LSI build with heavy runes and IA is probably more effective.

                        Something to note about runes. Attack and Defense runes add to your stats, so they work in regular battle, guild battle, and monster hunting. Damage runes only work in guild battle, and will not add to your stats.

                        So at your level, I suggest you forge the attack rune on your weapon, defense rune on your armor, and farm as much attack and defense essence to trade as you can.

                          Yes, at level 199. Sorry. No delicate way to put it.

                          The Ronins test has often been used to gauge PvP-ness in the past:
                          http://ronins.gauntlet.net/req.php

                          The Ronins haven't been active in quite some time, and the test is out of date, so 100% is a reasonably good PvP build, but not a stellar one like it used to be. The graph is broken too, which is very unfortunate since it was an interesting graph. It basically said that, as your level gets higher, you qualify at a lower BSI.

                          At level 199, quests are going to have a far better return than trying to level up runes. Energy leveling up runes is energy that isn't spent on questing. At such a low level, the returns are probably better using stamina to get IA and energy to get SP in quests (preferably demi quests if they haven't been already done).

                          Attack and defense essence is great for LSI builds, but it's too inefficient for attempts at BSI builds to go very far taking that path. (I say "attempts at BSI builds" because I'm not entirely sure that new BSI builds are viable anymore.)

                            There's always a bigger fish... unless you're Butch.

                            Raw BSI is a bad way to measure strength now. My raw BSI is a 6.6 but my BSI including runes and archives is 9.2 so it's really hard to look at just base stats nowadays.

                            When I first started I was putting a lot into Energy, some into Stam and too much into health for the way the game was working at the time. Over time, I turned a 2.6 BSI into a 7+ BSI... It's a respectable hybrid build but I wish I had put more into Stam sooner to have maximized my refill value, and could have done better with some loot drops along the way. With Item Archives being such a substantial part of the game, it made all those SPs I spent on A/D kind of moot... I could have spent some or all of them on E/S instead, leveled faster, and gotten more SPs out of archives on top of it.

                            I like archives and runes, but they really did completely warp the balance of the game away from straight A/D-heavy raw BSI builds.

                              True, sorry. I was thinking more about the pvp gauntlet brackets than the energy needed. Speaking from personal experience, you don't want to hit level 300 if you're not ready, and the xp return on some of those quests (especially sub-quests) can level players a lot faster than farming defence essence and trading. Already at 199, he'd likely be leveling fast enough just by farming attack essence and IA from certain monsters, plus getting some of the lower guild shop essences and stat points. :/
