Hey Guys and Gals,

I have been an on and off runescape player since 2001. I have always been someone to come back to the game after a few months off. One thing that I have always missed is the Wilderness. Other than getting killed while going on a farm run or doing some divination or maybe doing some abyss runs with a demonic skull, the Wilderness has really fallen off. I know the number of users for the forums has dissipated but I would love to resurrect the Wilderness.

My thought is to add a new mini-game to the wilderness. One thing everyone hates about the wilderness is the loss in revenue, but thats also the love right? Wrong, so few players enter the wild with high value items anymore. Well thats where this could change. Imagine the Wilderness with hundreds of players out PKing again. Here's how it could unfold;

If the Wildy was more affordable more people would go. How much fun would it be to have a war as a maxed out player vs another maxed out player in T90 gear knowing you are at your max potential. Well no one wants to spend 150m for one fight and possibly lose. Well instead, create Wildy Armor and Weapons. When entering the Wild, a pop up asks if you would like to purchase Gear for this session. Sets could be greatly reduced, sets for max players being around a mil and going down to T40 players at ~50k. Once the armor is purchased it can not be sold or worn out of the wilderness. Once you leave the wilderness the gear reverts back to coins. If you player kill another player with Wildy Gear on, the Gear turns into coins worth the same value as at purchase.

This would allow more players to risk their gear without major hardships while still making it value added to PK. Also you would not need to worry about space as you could stack up coins, 3 kills as a maxed character could get you 3m, thats better than an hour at Armadyl and it would be about the same risk. Suggestions are welcomed. Please

It's a nice idea, and I've seen itterations of it, in the past. I'd support it, especially if combined with other good aspects (balanced Elo rating, and so on), but unfortunately they have a track record of only implementing single aspects of a good idea that requires all aspects of it, to work, and then it quite obviously fails, so everyone is against them doing anything more.

Well we need to help push for good content, I like this idea but its only a piece. As players we know what we want, jagex knows what can affect the backgrounds and together we have to figure out a way to correctly implement. I know my idea is fairly bare bones'd but I would love to hear more input and really pitch an idea to the content creators.

hey Ifarm99.

I still love your idea and think it would benefit the current wilderness significantly.
Would I be able to use your idea in one of my threads? I will reference you and provide a link to this thread.

I have also been working on an instanced wilderness idea, separate from the existing wild.
If you'd like to have a look, this is the link.
