Despite attempts to animate PvP, we accept alone gotten systems that can be gamed by bots; PvP by players is deader than the wilderness itself. I shall put avant-garde the achievability that PvP is dead, atleast partially, due to the arrangement administration afterlife in the wilderness currently. Artlessly put:

Players are punished for accustomed items aural the wilderness. This discourages players from advancing equipped, and able to handle a fight. As a absolute aftereffect of this, the alone players who die in the wilderness currently are those searching to get on with their day and skill.

The alone players who PvP are those searching to greif as players who activity are far and few between, and the accumulation is abreast zero. Admitting the arrangement sounds cool, and has existed for a continued time, currently it allowances nobody.

A new arrangement should animate those entering the wilderness to appear able with their best accessory and able for a fight. The arrangement would be as follows:

- Aloft entering the wilderness, a bead of gold based aloft the players absolute accomplishment akin should be taken from their money pouch. This bulk should be babyish abundant that one or two deaths would not hurt, but that 10s of deaths would add up to a reasonable sum.

- Aloft afterlife in the wilderness, players will not lose items. The gold taken from their accessory aloft entering the wilderness shall be alone instead. Aloft abrogation the wilderness un-killed, the players shall get this gold back.

- Accepting skulled would be captivated for appropriate cases and plan differently: Aloft accepting skulled, the alone items the amateur could alone lose are high-value items acquired in wilderness activities. The amateur would be skulled aloft advancing added players or aloft accepting a high-value wilderness annual (examples of items that would skull a amateur would be a Wyrm Heart, Warband items and Anarchy Elemental Uniques). Accepting skulled would appear on the acrimonious up of these items, and be appear aloft the wilderness.

- It's not a ample issue, but accepting absorbed or tricked would be bargain to abreast 0. Nobody's realistically spending the time adorable a amateur with this system, and if they do afresh the absorbed amateur looses little.

The abstraction of this change would be to change the mentality of the wilderness: If you die skilling or slaying, it's because you chose to appear un-equipped or didn't accept the accomplishment to win the fight. This afterlife should accordingly feel and be fairer than accepting best off un-equipped in the wilderness, even if it adeptness aching the coffer added in the accident that you die, compared to skilling un-equipped currently.

This arrangement could not be gamed by bots: Gold traveling in accept to go out. There would be no added rewards for PvP aloft the bead that a amateur you've dead has paid, and the ball bulk of the activity. The abject of this abstraction is that absolute activity is added absorbing than killing un-equipped players.

PvP will at the absolute least, be fabricated absorbing again, as players would be added decumbent to agreeable aback in combat. The accumulation adeptness not be record-breaking for PvPers, but would absolutely be added assisting than currently.

The ambition is to accomplish the 'entry-fee' low abundant that is doesn't abash players from entering the wilderness but top abundant that killing 10+ players an hour would accomplish the activity worth-while for those who adore it.
