The kill alias is if not the, at least one of the most important and frequently used aliases you'll have. Unless you don't use one and just use kill on every npc you attack.

A good kill alias should keep you from attacking playerkillers, NPCs that will get you killed or losing inventory such as cats, priests and contractor NPCs in Djelibeybi, hags in Bes Pelargic and stone palms in the oasis as well as contractable NPCs and quest NPCs.

The first thing you got to decide when writing a kill alias is whether it should be exclusive (kill all except ...) or inclusive (kill cockroaches & begars & ...), what not to attack or what to attack.

  • Even if you decide to use an inclusive list you might have to exclude some things if you can't refer to npcs without referring to others you don't want to target.

Among warriors it's common to start a kill alias with warcry.
