Should be available outside of the Max Guild, with a different and difficult path to use it. Not everyone is a skiller and PvM should not be locked behind maxing. I don't suggest making it easier to access, rather adding an alternative path for dedicated PvMers who do not want to max. Needing skills (such as herblore) to PvM/PvM better is a good thing, but maxing should not be considered standard.
Currently someone can have 0 kills in any boss and have an instant teleport right outside any boss while someone with IFB can't.


Some suggestions for where it could be (even if it were in an easily accessible place it could be unusable until further requirements were met)

-PvM guild
-PoH
Would be nice for PoH to be in any way relevant, also 99 construction req
-Legends guild
Locked behind many quests and touted as prestigous but no reason to visit
-Warriors guild
Chould have a higher level wing

Some possible requirements - in addition to area access of the above. This could be done on a boss by boss basis, and/or having different requirements for different sets of bosses.

-Final boss (regular) OR 100 kills to teleport to a specific boss
Shows big time investment
-All runescore PvM achievements excluding killcounts (Solo/Group/Elite Dungeons/Raids)
Shows understanding of boss mechanics and considerable time investment
-All runescore PvM achievements including killcounts
Both of the above
These are pretty endgame requirements that would work for endgame bosses. If we split bosses into low/mid/high level (which could be defined by luck tier) they could have they own tier of requirements to access. Not many maxed players want a Graador teleport after all.

I welcome more suggestions for both.
You'll get it when you deserve it.

I much rather 'd like to see that the boss portal gets splitted in different tiers:
- A portal in the warriors guild; access to low level bosses
- A portal in the [...] ; access to mid level bosses
- A portal in [...]; access to high level bosses
- A portal in the Max Guild to all bosses.

Imo would make more sense. Why can only a maxed player teleport instantly to GWD1, while a noob could use this better & so on. And Max Guild doesn't lose its great reward from doing this.

Boom.

I always thought it was odd that there are two types of Skilling Portal in the Garden and none inside the Guild proper as it was. The progression of Skill Portal (one 99) > Skill Portal (fifteen 99s) > Bossing Portal (all 99s) strikes me as strange. Doesn't it make more sense for the reward for maxing out all skill to be easier access to reaping the benefits from them?

Either way, I like the idea of the Boss Portal being a bit easier to access. I especially like the idea of reworking the POH Portal Room to perhaps allow for (lesser?) versions of the Max Guild ones. Tying it to the Achievement System is a cool idea too -- perhaps the player could unlock bosses to add to their possible destinations (with a potential maximum outside of the Guild) by completing those achievements. For example, by completing Party Anima and Coursing Through You, the player can add Telos to their POH portal bank.

Any way it's done, I definitely like the idea. :P

I was thinking about this and I love the thought both of boss by boss unlocks and using achievements, but sadly not every boss has achievements that show an understanding of mechanics like that. Some bosses don't have achievements at all :L

I still think the idea has merit and could be worked in some way.

Hmm.. yea, you're right, doesn't makes sense that the skilling and boss portals are where they are right now...

I wouldn't mind seeing them swapped, as long as the slow animation to opening MG door is removed.

I've always kind of wanted the ability to teleport to boss dungeons from the Portal Room in the PoH. The mental image of getting a raiding party set up in your home was always a dream of mine when I first played over a decade ago; unfortunately by the time I came back from my 9-year absence, house parties were basically a thing of the past. And, honestly, while PoH as a whole could benefit from an overhaul, Portal Rooms (and teleport spells in general, but especially the limited ones we could make portals for) got made nearly completely redundant with the Lodestone system.

As far as unlocks go, I think there's a simple solution; in order to use the portal, you need to at least reach the second tier of the Boss Kill achievements (10 kills) for the boss in question. So if, say, you've killed Graardor 10 times, you could take a one-way portal to the opening of the Bandos encampment (ie. everyone would still need the killcount to enter the boss room, but you'd at least bypass the main chamber). I'm not sure whether portals should be opened for the Wilderness bosses (sounds like a recipe for trouble), but other than that I don't think it should cause any problems.

I agree.

The main problem is people not wanting it to be "easy" to get because "muh max guild".
