Wilderness is dead in terms of PVP because there are dozens of safe options elsewhere. Such as the ability to duel a person literally anywhere on the map with no negative consequences.
If people want to test their mettle against a foe, there is no reason to use the wilderness. You have to run as deep as your level difference, be fully prepared to possibly die, even if you win your intended fight. You don't risk everything if they attack first, and then you don't win everything unless they attack first.
Duel arena and free roam duelling entirely replace the PvP purpose of the wilderness. And now that content locked behind the gap is dead, because to effectively train, you have to not be prepared for battle, and to come prepared for battle means you aren't effectively training.
Wilderness is only for the top tier now. It's dead content to everybody else.
Easy ways to combat the issue is to focus less on PvP.

I fail to see how doing this would make it any less "dead"?
If ppl don't like tp gp pking, it doesn't matter what world its on ppl wont pk.
Also, welcome back This would 100% solve the problem. I never said someone who isn't into pking would come. There are people who actually like pking, there are just too many worlds.https://www.reddit.***/r/runescape/comments/a2uuzs
