On February 1st ‘The Wilderness', the most dangerous and high risk area of RuneScape, will be returning to the game. If you have little or no experience of RuneScape or of player-vs-player combat in the Wilderness then this is the guide for you.
The Wilderness, for those who haven't experienced runescape gold, is a barren landscape that dominates the north of the game world. It is an open player vs player (PvP) area where players can hunt down other players with the intention of killing them in PvP combat. The Wilderness can be explored by both members and non-members so everyone is free to put their combat skills to the test in the most dangerous area in RuneScape.
If you are a fan of PvP you will love the Wilderness but it isn't for everyone, so it's currently protected by a perimeter wall which acts as a warning to players of the dangers ahead. If you are brave enough to try, leap the Wilderness wall and prepare for battle.
Strategy and tactics are key to a successful wilderness campaign. If you want advice from seasoned players, then your best bet is to head over to Edgeville, just south of the Wilderness, where many players cluster and prepare before wandering into the Wilderness. You may even be able to find a PKing group of your own to back you up when you venture forth. Whatever your reason for entering the Wilderness, it is clear that you do so at your own risk. As it is an open PvP area you are in danger of being attacked and potentially dying at the hands of another player. Unlike other popular MMOs, dying in the Wilderness doesn't just mean that you will re-spawn somewhere else. It will mean that upon death the items you are carrying and wearing will drop on the ground where they will be available for other players to pick up. Of course conversely, if you kill another player you get the immediate reward of gaining their items.
The Wilderness can be a thrilling, tempting risk; one that you could potentially reap great rewards from. You have to decide whether taking your expensive high level equipment will give you enough of an advantage to ensure that you are on the winning side of the "kill or be killed" mentality.
