as we know its practically dead. and warbands is not ever going to save it that is basically an exclusive club of pkers hogging all the xp with high reqs..


or atleast that's the way I see it from my outside view.. never having actually participated to due said reqs.

what im suggesting is to remove the pking danger in the wilderness and replace it was a deadlier pvm approach including everything. the wilderness death mechanics can stay unchanged with only a few tweaks. for gravestones where players who die must reach their grave to reclaim there stuff and could perhaps pay gp to extend such timer(timer wont start until leaving deaths hourglass though)

and bring back roaming revenants to kill the unlucky traveler or two.

as for warbands? the pvp mechanics could be changed to involve god factions or revenants focusing aggression on those attempting to steal the supplies/ loot casting binds and other such things to prevent escape. we cant make things safer for them after all.:|

feel free to reply. will accept all criticisms:|
(edit for tldr)


in short what im asking for is a return of the wilderness of 2008-2011
with updates.

can keep the current pking pvp wilderness but give players the option to toggle pking on and off for wilderness usage.

I feel this would be the best solution to breathe atleast some life into the many wilderness areas. and could perhaps free the wilderness up for new content in the future.

The last time pking got removed from the game Runescape was considered dead and a vast number of players quit the game. Pvp isnt fully dead and zones where players can attack each other are a good thing to the game as it shows it can have more dimensions other than pvming.

while true to some extent pvp just isnt as popular as pvm now any ways and most of the pvp community jumped ship over to osrs


turning wilderness into a more dedicated pvm area can help with adding better pvm content into the game and the wilderness is an extremely large area. one that's dead simply due to pking.


what pkers are mostly after in pvp is an actual even challenge. not neccesarily just running around killing those extremely weaker than them. and the ppl with that mindset of mostly jumped to osrs. what remains of the that community here from my understanding. r those that seek no challenges.

changing wilderness back into a pking free area could also potentially bring more populartity back into the several pvp minigames we currently have though I somewhat doubt this myself as pvp is mostly just dead.

jagex has tried over and over to bring in more interest into pking and pvp in the wilderness and none of the updates have really worked. if players can find something there that's also outside of the wildy then they will go after it. even if it is more of a hassle to access. Silent Insanity...

The fact that you fear pkers is proof enough that ppl still ppv there. Not to mention that there are many pvping in areas pvmers dont visit. Wildy pvping is far from being dead content and, as i posted earlier, having an area where ppl can attack other ppl is a nice addition to the game-it builds up to the adventure a player has in Runescape.

did I say I fear pkers? since im pretty sure I didn't.


wildy is dead to the point that I enter it daily even loaded out with full arma and bandos with sgs just to train a few prayer levels at chaos alters or visited the mage training arena to get the god staves


or mined banite that's located right next to a metal bank in lvl 50 wildy. I can even train agility at the wildy agile course without much fear

it is pretty much dead


warbands is an area filled with high lvl clans hogging all the recourses with stupid reqs like having billion gp equipment to participate and a few with stupid reqs for wilderness. so and exclusivity club? to get any decent reward from the minigame. basically thugs? there is little point in any1 else not participating.

the forums are hardly an active area to get thoughts from various viewpoints ingame.


creating more usefull content is the intention here.


pvp for the most part is largely dead freeing up the wilderness can easily allow for more quests to take place there in the future.

as it stands currently even on f2p worlds the closest thing to pvp in the wildy is killing cursed energy bots.. which is boring and also safe..

Aside from the fact that you contradict yourself by firstly saying that you want pvp removed from wildy because of the danger of pkers then saying you dont fear pkers because none is pking anymore, go on and suggest new content in wildy without mentioning the pvp removal from it.

As for warbands just because you got pked there doesnt mean its an exclusive thing for ppl with over 1b equipment. Most pkers there got 20kish armor and either noxbow which is 141m or royal cbow which is a t80 500k gp weapon. It means that if you want to join a clan to hold your back while wbing that reqs you to kill others there you can do that with cheap weapons/armor. Theres no such thing as exclusivity and even if it was it wouldnt be this games problem as its up to the clan who they invite and what reqs they set for ppl to join.
