    Looks good. I like that there will be a completionist element in and around it. Biased, of course. Great that it will have a quest as well, can't wait.

    Thank you so much for adding it with a quest.

    Wyverns should have a higher slayer level requirement, honestly being below their skeletal form seems a bit off.

    Also the Wyvern shield definitely needs to be nerfed offensive wise, it makes sense to make it the more tanky magic shield (to match the DFS) but it shouldn't be that close to the Arcane.

    New Wyvern Hype!

    Can the skeletal wyvern slayer task be changed to just wyverns? So players can choose to either kill skeletal or ancient wyverns on their slayer task rather then splitting them up

    I suggest making the XP gap bigger between 85 and 99. 60k for 85 sounds more reasonable.

    Also, that shield is way too OP. Ridiculous.

    The level required to kill the wyverns concerns me, and I believe it should be higher. Somewhere in the 80s. My reasoning is that you get addy boots from lvl 75 Gargoyles, and rune boots from lvl 80 Nechs. Why would a lvl 66 slayer creature drop granite boots that are better then both? That's not including all the other good drops it has. Putting the slayer requirement around 81 or 82 would keep it consistent, and put it before Spiritual Mages at lvl 83 that drop the dragon boots.
