To help balance out pk in low ranks, the starting hp has been increased
from 30 to 100. This will be taken from level ups so that it balances out
the same at level 50. Existing characters are converted on login. So for
example if you are level 36 yo will get an extra 20 hp and if you are level
40 you will get an extra 15 hp (and so on).

This is actually a change that Eldorian wanted to make in 2004, but due to the change to low level killing pk limits (since reverted) it became no longer worth the time to do it, as the lowbie killing scene had collapsed. Now that we have organized a small but growing low level pk'ing scene with cabal apps, I think its the right time to give the low level pk scene the love it needs.

So there is no confusion on what that issue is, I will say it explicitily: it is to mitigate the overwhelming high damage output of red dragon equipped characters and lightning bolts, etc, against low level hp. This bump is just enough HP to add an extra hit or two of wiggle room, which can be the difference between being dunked out of nowhere unprepared and your survival. I hope that with this update that we will also re-legitamize our once-thriving low level PK scene. It really is a fun place to fight once youve trained and eq'd a little.

I also feel like this will help spellcasters who are stuck soloing with a pet and a merc. This is an overall improvement to most classes not just for lowbie pk, as most mages suck at lowbie pk anyways.
