PKing for Dummies was a book that Punitto planned to write at the time of the conquest of the Great Tomb of Nazarick.[1] After the dungeon was conquered and the establishment of Ainz Ooal Gown he succeeded in finishing it.

In the New World, Ainz Ooal Gown was planning to teach a variety of skills from this book to Nazarick's NPCs like Narberal for guidance on their learning.

Abilities

The book imparts all of Punitto's knowledge of player killing tactics. The statement that "the battle is over before it begins" is a famous quote from the text.

According to Ainz, he recalled the contents of PKing for Dummies that when making occasional concessions with enemy players, one must return dropped items to opponents after PKing them.[3]

When Ainz read Punitto Moe-san’s book of PKing For Dummies, it can be said that one should back off and assess the situation before engaging the enemy player. However, that assumes the enemy is on the same level as the PKer and has PK experience.[4]

Because Suzuki Satoru has made it his objective to enter the enemy player's lair which gives the latter the terrain advantage over him, he recalled the lessons contained in PKing For Dummies to deal with similar situations like it. He made note from how the book mentions powerful enemy players attacking their target in small groups.[5]
