When is pvp NOT griefing? Imo, I think killing people who have nothing worn or inventory, just afk moths and they come back and keep getting killed by the same pker is Griefing. If they're wearing skull though then it's fine.

I bought a strykebow just so I can escape pkers easy with clear headed 2 and reflexes perks.

I'd say it's never "griefing" - any player willingly walking into an open PVP zone, whether they're wearing or have anything in their inventory or not, is accepting the risk that they may be killed for sport. I'm no fan of being slain while trying to do agility at the wilderness course either, but it's the risk I take if I choose to go there, ya know?

whenever i was at wildy course i used to come across wildy pkers regularly , i used to go there with no food and the agility set so lose nothing and frequently they knew it but killed me anyways so i started turning the tables.

they have auto retal on mostly so it was easy to piss them off, after they stop killing mei sit idle while they are waiting for people to show up i'd sit next to them and wait ,as soon as i see them move i attack they retal kill me while there target gets away lol i got no end of bitching about that lol but its sucks aye! now they know how i feel.

Jagex should also make one wilderness world with no rev cave and free roaming revs (like ACTUAL osrs used to be like) that pking is disabled in so we can catch chins, do wildy slayer, and clues in peace

PK'ing is hardly "griefing". There's only one rule in the wilderness and that's trust no one - in fact I'd argue that's the only rule for any game that has either open world PVP or a dedicated area like the wilderness.

If you enter the wilderness you willingly agree to the consequences that anyone can attack and/or kill you otherwise you're extremely naive if you believe anything voids that.

The whole premise behind skilling in the wilderness once upon a time was you got reward from the risks you took that you couldn't get anywhere else, this doesn't work anymore because Jagex has butchered the community to the point where it isn't perfectly balanced. Nor does it work because that worked more than a decade ago when the best you could get was rune armour until they released GWD1, better exp rates outside etc.

The wilderness is the only remaining outdated section of the game in RS3 (I've been playing this since RSC was the only version of the game), Jagex has fucked it up beyond recognition at this point so they might as well just go all in now and revamp a new sort of PVP system or game mode that actively encourages and promotes a new generation of PVP.

Whether they turn it into some hybrid world event-esque vibe with some sort of lore tied to it in order to explain it or whatever I don't know, hell.. maybe turn it into a castle wars 2.0 with respectable rewards that spans the whole area of the wilderness.

They could have areas with tied benefits which randomly assign themselves to specific areas within it each week or something so as to discourage favouritism of particular areas that carries over into the rest of the game to whoever controls them to defend in order to stop it becoming stale. Let skillers fortify or build these areas and turn PVP'ers against themselves by giving incentive to defend their sides skillers.

In its current form? PVP has been dead for years in RS3. There's more skillers than PK'ers now, so go figure.

Why would it be griefing? The Wilderness is meant for PvP, wouldn't it be unfair to kill players who are wearing armour to defend themselves and not those who go in naked? Either way, easy killcount towards the PvP hat.
