What is your suggestion?: Make the wilderness great again

Is this in OSRS?: N?A

Has this suggestion been accepted already?:

How would this benefit Alora?: Make the wilderness worth venturing to other than hunting rev weps/vw

 

 

 

 

 

Alora as a private server can never offer the one thing that makes OSRS wilderness so active.

 
 
Playercount.
 
 
Aloras wilderness is incredibly underwhelming and often the activities alora does offer that are different from wilderness (Skotizo/Supply chest) don't happen frequently enough
to warrant players going after them 24/7.
 
The wilderness should be a place that is scary for pvmers, and always active for pkers.
 
My suggestion? Add more random events, buff Larrans chest with more loot that is far more rewarding for ironmen in addition to the current table. Add wilderness events to daily
events along with item and pet hunts. 
 
Add a chance upon killing any wildy monster in wilderness you can get a bloody key, not just revs and crystal monsters.
 
 
Make certain bosses that are not available in wildy spawn in the wilderness with buffed loot tables, Corp/Zulrah/Cerb/Etc. Make them always spawn in multi areas.
3-5x normal health with 1-3 rolls depending on your damage. 
 
 
I understand that this could be a lot to add to the game, revamping monsters for wildy etc. But the wilderness needs revitalized, pkp shop needs updated for normal and ironmen accounts. The wilderness should be among the most rewarding content in the game, I am not a pker in the slightest but I miss when you had to worry about going wildy for something that was worth the risk. 
 
 
As always, this is only a suggestion post and I would love to hear everyones opinions in the comments. Alora needs a wilderness update and I will support anything 100% if it benefits all players.

It's funny I was going to post a topic about revamping the wilderness in the next few days.

Generally I support this, but not all of your exact concepts. I think Alora should look at what OSRS is doing RIGHT NOW (second wilder was updating coming this week on there).

A suggestion was already made to add the thieving chests and it had a lot of support. I also think all current NPCs other than revs need a drop table buff. And wilderness slayer needs to be severely buffed, maybe even give a +20% slayer XP in the wilderness or something.

Overall support!

my issue with reviving the wilderness, paired with the suggestion above is that its only creating more gold farmers to be consolidated and picked off. its not pking. yes it plays a part of the wilderness ecosystem fueling the pkers bank. but after awhile that routine gets deflated due to pvmers minimizing risk or just accepting the extended route outside the wilderness. the pvmer would need such high rewards to consistently take the bruising from pkers.

even if we implemented every single activity into the wilderness, only pking thatll be done is the conflicts between existing pkers which fizzles out.
the eco is too strong, people spend too much time in the prepping phase rather than going out pking. only solution is cheap welfare gear unless you roll with numbers or want/can afford to risk.

its not worth spending time gathering 70m to lose it in 5mins in each encounter. (were talking large numbers of players who dont care for the rest of the game they solely pk)

imagine telling someone go do an activity for 4-5hrs to have 1 pk trip that lasts 20mins, theyll cop it for afew attempts and leave cause the effort:reward ratio is out of sync. even if there is a good pker that gets a decent kdr the fact it can be brought back to neutral with current prices eliminates skill gap


@Omicron would need to offer clan incentives like tournaments, ingame cosmetic perks, take home money for putting in effort instead of allocating that to osrs where they walk away with irl cause golds worth something still.

I think adding breaches to wildy would be hella fun like how OSRS did on DMM last year.

I’m against introducing wilderness variants of current existing boss.

But small introductions such as maybe offering Bloody Key drops to Superiors in Wildy slayer.
Also OSRS have/are releasing some nice Wilderness QoL that may see more activity in the Wildy. Such as the Wilderness agility course improvements etc.

OSRS has been releasing some good Wildy updates recently, as @Formula One mentioned, i definitely support changes to the Wilderness like that. I myself recently suggested a revamp for the Rogues Castle and the Rogues Chest.

no support from these suggestions in their current form, all its gonna do is attract the same single digit handful of people who already dominate the wilderness and give them more reasons to dominate. the same people who avoid the wildernerness because of the pkers will still avoid it.

Can't think of ways to improve PVP that would actually encourage pkers to fight each other. Sure, stuff like adding larrans keys/bloody keys to wilderness slayer superiors, adding breaches from OSRS DMM and so on sounds cool, but all that does is encourage pkers to kill pvmers/skillers, which is annoying if you've been either of those. 

 

Truth be told, the wilderness has been dying for years, big example being OSRS. We've seen this on Alora too when Event Managers host PVP related events such as the Edgeville PVP hunt or some tournaments, and you'll see <5 participants.

 

In regards to actual wilderness pking, it's hard to get into and quite expensive. It doesn't really improve your account in any meaningful way except acquiring wealth. It's hard to pinpoint a solution, but it's not a pressing issue that needs to be addressed ASAP either, so the wildy is in this constant limbo of where people would rather just do content in safe areas, and pkers kill the one or two players that go to the wilderness once in a while.
