Extremely mad, but would like to know if it's my fault or the games.

Just recently did a new wilderness slayer task, greater demons. Went with 3 items, scythe and luck of the dwarves using a few prayer potions. Got jumped by 5 pkers, woke up in edge with no items.

Pretty positive I did not click anyone or anything, so does scythe in a multi zone using AoE attacks hit other players, and would it skull me?

If you instigate combat with a player then you will Skull.

This means that if your AoE Ability damaged another player then you have instigated combat with them and thus you will skull.



Whilst in the Wilderness you should have Auto Retaliate disabled and not use AoE Abilities unless you accept the possibility that it could hit other players.

If this is true, I understand the mechanic. However I don't feel this should be the case. I'm purposely not trying to start combat with people, I shouldn't be able to be "lured" in by a gang of 3 and cause me to skull. This is glitch manipulation at best. Because that's what people are doing then.

Or at very least a disclaimer when about multitarget abilities, or a setting to turn off in wildly, etc. Nothing Jagex has done has lead me to believe this is intentional

it sucks but never ever bring or use anything that does any kind of aoe to wildy

corruption bleeds can do it too i beleive

on the other hand, there are all sorts of bugs and exploits that pkers use to cheat the game and u might have been skulled by one of those

i was killing lava strykes before, when a pker turned up, fired a spell at me, turned into a rock (ring of stone), and even though i was running in the opposite direction and had auto respond off, my character stopped, turned, and attacked him in rock form, and some how i skulled but he didnt?

this game is so full of bugs just never take anything to wildy you dont mind losing, as some childish little brat will use an exploit on you

This. It's a shame that the fixing of obvious exploits via cosmetics has been placed on the backburner by Jagex. But until Jagex gets their act together, this is pretty much the only way you can avoid losing valuable items.

its your fault
you had auto retaliate on
revolution qued an ability with AoE, cleave for example
you then attacked the one PKer that attacked you and Aoe one of the others next to them

NEVER TAKE ANYTHING INTO THE WILDERNESS YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO LOSE

And BTW, this is not a bug
Its how the WILDERNESS mechanics have been since EOC
