Wait, after months of wanting to try this out I finally got the resources and levels to make a vacuum just to have it "Lost on death" due to last months patch... This is the dumbest thing ever.. How about you nuke the bots instead of the "high-level" skilling methods... what even...

This is not as big a deal as everyone is making it to be. Wilderness = risk. And for high levels there are incandescents, which are just as good.



I don't think div-o-matic was ever originally intended to make cursed wisps risk-free. It was more an unintended consequence, and I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did. Prior to the introduction of div-o-matic, you could gain around 30K cursed energies per hour from pking at cursed wisps, relative to around 10K cursed energies per hour from harvesting them. Pking was the most efficient gathering method, which kinda made sense, as it was in the wildy, and pking isn't itself without risk. Div-o-matic not only took all the risk out of cursed wisps, it also took out all the strategy, making it little more than an AFK skilling spot, and as such the wildy probably wasnt the best place for.

Granted we can still use the second best spot, but yeah they're completely silent on the massive bot problem there. This will deter legitimate, if cowardly, high level players from getting a powerful way to obtain their own div charges, but not bots in the slightest.
