Just look at it.

7 years ago, there was virtually nothing in the wilderness. Now we have a huge, useless volcano taking up half of it. It's crowded with minigames like FoG, SC and CWA. You have quests there like Summer's End.

Point being, there are far too many landmarks. Even for new players, after 2 or 3 trips into the wild, you get to know where things are and can find yourself.

Back in RSC and the old days, it was different. You could go in, and get lost. That's what I liked about it - the adventure.

The Wilderness isn't wilderness anymore. It's another Runescape city. Discuss.

There's also the fact that it's much smaller. Jagex removed a bunch of areas they deemed "pointless".

I miss the poison spiders and the two black knights.

Yes I agree, those were the days. IMO they should make the wilderness larger now and make all the landmarks more "spread out". And remove the volcano haha. Oh and I don't see a reason to why clan wars takes such large space, the majority of the clan wars arenas take place off the face of the main world anyways. They should simply just have the starting area and put the lava arena in whatever place all the other arenas are in. Kind of lazy by Jagex I think :razz:

Get rid of the Clan Wars arena, dump it with the others, and then I think the Wilderness would be better place.

You miss the days where there was nothing interesting in the wilderness and the design of it was essentially copy-paste dirt for miles?

I knew the RS Community valued nostalgia more than any other community on the planet, but this is REALLY bad.

I've been playing since '03 and I dont miss that useless, scam-infested barren wasteland at all.

I agree, even though there are like 5 different Clan Wars maps, you only see one in the wilderness.

Why? Dunno, but its a real eyesore. Take the Clan Wars thingy out, and then it'll look better. *look towards the Wilderness Volcano* Oh noes...

Shouldn't the clan wars/bounty hunter arena all be put in another location outside the world map? (kind of like dungeons)
And I agree with you. The wilderness looks like another big city.

I enjoyed the copy-paste dirt.

It was exciting the first few times I explored there, not knowing where the hell I was, constantly on the lookout for blood-thirsty pkers. Now there are banks, mini games, familiar places everywhere. Danger is the last thing people think of when they're in the wilderness now.

I think it's more of the fact that the wilderness is kind of cluttered now. Not that it should be empty, just larger and more spread out, that way there's still room for us to get lost again.

Why is everyone complaining about getting lost in the wilderness is a good thing? Yeah, its the WILDERNESS but
there's essentially no point in trying to compliment this matter because it brings frustration to the majority of us
and we're gaining absolutely nothing for being lost in an online game. If its for the sake of challenge, the only thing
we should worry about is the loss of PKING there. Now what do we have? Reverents with the intellect of a 3 year old
who can never pose any significant threat to even the weakest rs player. *sigh* If I wanted the "wilderness" feeling back,
the only thing I would definitely want is pking.

I definitely agree that the wilderness seems much less . . . threatening . . . these days. There's landmarks everywhere so you're never lost, there's nothing really scary (lol rev dragons, yeah right), and there's no paranoia. I used to hate the wilderness because I was always worried about being PK'd. When I saw a white dot, I'd immediately run away and hide.

Good times.

Love nostalgia. Always raises the question - WAS it actually better/more fun/more whatever back then, or is it just nostalgia speaking? Like, remember good things, forget bad things, and people remembering things a lot more fondly once it's a memory, and not an active experience.

Squab unleashes Megiddo! Completed all quests and hard diaries. 75+ Skiller. (At one point.) 2000+ total. 99 Magic.

The rest of my sig. You know you wanna see it.

Now that you mention it, it's not even dangerous anymore, just bring armor and there we go, no more revenants :/. They should remove that stuff and move it somewhere else, make it like it used to be, a place where you were afraid to go to and that you could get lost at :3

Wilderness has been dead since the volcano and mini games were added. While even prior to that it doesnt match the rsc wildy, it still was amazing back then. The trade updates really took something from rs....

Did it look better? No. Was there more to do? No. Was it more dangerous? Hell yes. Was it more paranoia-inducing? Hell yes. I miss the danger and the sense of foreboding. I'm not a nostalgic person, really.

No, it's definitely the latter.
