Untitled[edit source]

I'm gonna work on adding a map and a Points of Interest part, jsut like with the other Kingdom articles. This isn't technicall a kingdom, but I think it works. Oddlyoko

Thinking the same, but paerhaps it needs to be sliced up a bit more, as it's big.

Obviously, the members area past the high level gate is one section that can be taken on its own, but the rest could be halved or quartered to get down to areas with about as much in them as a large city - or perhaps the wilderness is the region, and each place gets a city-style mention? Ace of Risk 00:00, 12 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Mmm... Lets use this article as an overview, like the Kingdom articles, and halve the wilderness into Members and Free, and make thise liek the City articles. Individual areas of the Wilderness aren't worth individual articles. Oddlyoko 05:49, 12 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Edgeville route to Mind altar??[edit source]

Huh? Can someone clarify what is meant by the reference to the Edgeville route to the Mind altar please? Shadowdancer 04:11, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

The mind altar is most often reached by players from the Falador bank. Edgeville, however, is closer (roughly 25%), although it does go to as high as level 4 wilderness. Woodcutting-icon.pngHyenastetalk 04:35, 26 July 2006 (UTC)
Thank you. Shadowdancer 04:39, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Extension[edit source]

It's rather surprising that this guide is far less informative than the Wilderness article on Wikipedia, which describes quite a lot of "history" about the wilderness. In fact, would it be possible to encounter why Jagex introduce Wilderness? According to some Internet sources, in the very early days everywhere outside Lumbridge Castle allow PvP combat... Patrickov 07:40, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

That's right. You could also choose to be PK or non-PK...And duelling everywhere is still allowed to this day in RSC. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 07:51, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

Wilderness/wilderness[edit source]

I'm not sure if it should be capitalized. Since it's a location it is, right?Sacre Fi 03:17, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

I believe that it is capitalised in-game, so that's what we use. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 08:23, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Edgeville dungeon wilderness[edit source]

What about the wilderness part of Edgeville dungeon? I don't see any mention for it. It's members only and have the boss of family crest quest, Chronozon. Also, it's the only way to reach Air and Earth obelisks used to make battlestaves. I think it should be added.EMG Blue 07:42, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Add it then. Don't know much about it myself. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 12:24, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
I added it, but I took it straight from Edgeville Dungeon. EMG Blue 15:02, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
Where is it? I can't find it. I've looked, and I can't find it. <:( Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 03:45, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
Go to edgeville...go to the remains of the church...go down the ladder near the coffins...follow the dungeon until you get to a gate which gives you the Wilderness warning sign when you get near it. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 08:36, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
Oh, thanks. :) Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 14:41, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Teleport limit[edit source]

What's the limit on teleports in the wilderness again? I know at some level of wilderness, like 20 or 25 or something, teleports don't work past that level. Atlantima talk trade contribs

Level 20. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 22:54, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
Well, actually, if you are using some teleports, you can go up to level 30 wilderness. Can't remember which though.Arrogios 02:25, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
From article: "Items that allow teleportation to up to 30 level Wilderness: Amulet of Glory, Bracelet of combat, Necklace of skills, Pharaoh's sceptre, Grand seed pod, Ring of Life." Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 18:05, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Your opinion[edit source]

I've added the Bone yard in the "Other items of interests" part. Please tell me, what do you think about this and what do you think about the Bone yard article itself. Second-abyssal-whip.png Spitfire Dragon sq shield.png talk 17:15, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

I think it should be called other places of interest by the way... Second-abyssal-whip.png Spitfire Dragon sq shield.png talk 17:17, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

I think it's a bit generous to say that PKing is the most popular activity in runescape.  In the wilderness?  Probably.  But not in the whole of runescape.  Perhaps it used to be this way, but I don't think it is anymore, even after the return of the wildy/free trade.  I would love to see actual figures on this if they exist.Matchgirl42 (talk) 17:46, April 4, 2013 (UTC)


A question about another location in the wilderness: If you look on the world map, on the east coast in deep wilderness (north of the wildy fishing spots), there is a small peninsula with what look like walls on it. Is there any purpose to this place? I can't find a mention of it on the Wikia. The Alphy 21:24, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

It's a volcano. There's lava and stuff, and a magma-filled crater at the top with a bridge over it. You can also see a shipwreck off the coast. There isn't really anything there, except for a music track, and it is apparently unnamed. It looks neat though. Nice scenery if you want to visit it. The volcano is active, so you can see it shake and rumble and spit fireballs. troacctid 22:04, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Question[edit source]

Hey I wanted to ask if a member die, would they drop there member items they have equiped in a nonmeber world, and would other non members be able to pick them up? Scythe.png DeaddeaddeadMore death...or is there?MaybeScythe.png

  • No...I've died in wildy with mem items...they disappearScythe.png Atlandy 21:10, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

all right then thx for telling me. Scythe.png DeaddeaddeadMore death...or is there?MaybeScythe.png

New Update of Wilderness[edit source]

Please add in some information about the new added monsters (Revernals), Clan War, Bounty Hunter et cetera. Many thanks. I have redirected some graphics and maps. Please add in textual update. XDRAGONAITE +Saradomin's Book of Wisdom.png 14:59, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Please help find a way to upload the following wildy whole map onto Wiki.... the size is too large. http://webo.com.hk/download.php?real_fn=wilderness.png&md5_time=368798f3fcba51ea2a49b27966835672f42291981031456441&file_ext=png XDRAGONAITE +Saradomin's Book of Wisdom.png 15:08, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Added some new data and removed most out of date data Ltr96 Rocks

So many pages that need to be edited now thanks to the update..

I added some info on revenants, hope it helps.

PvP[edit source]

I should probably know this by now, but is it still possible to attack other players in the wilderness? I always assumed that it was, but it just wasn't as popular anymore because of the updates. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 13:40, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Players can only attack other players in Clan Wars and Bounty Huneter. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 20:29, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
That is so stupid! How does that at all eliminate macroers? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 23:19, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
It eliminates the macroers by making it impossible to sell gold, running the gold selling companies out of business (or at least away from RuneScape), thus stopping the creation, and general logging in, of the bots. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 01:49, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
How does that make it impossible to sell gold? Killing people doesn't have to do with RWT, does it? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:19, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
It does, actually. Because of the trade updates, the only way to transfer bought gold was to PK the seller, and the buyers gets all but three coins of his purchase. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 02:22, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

History[edit source]

I think we should add a little more history to this Artcle Maybe like a timeline of the wilderness.Cowboy2 19:10, 18 February 2008 (UTC)Cowboy2

Good Idea

The "Ruins Peninsula"[edit source]

Should we mention the Peninsula by the Demonic Ruins? I know it shouldnt have an article or anything big, but atleast a mention here and there. It has these unique characteristics:

  • No Monsters
  • Revenants dont go there
  • Has a Cape Seller

In other words, its a nice safespot, and I know ALOT of people who love it there.

What peninsula? The volcano? Revs do go there, I've been attacked there. troacctid 02:24, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Not the volcano, its like, that Free To Play Ruins thing south of that volcano, just go into the Wilderness, keep going till to hit the Members Gate, and walk east of the Demonic Ruins, youll see it....

They are both more together (or at least enough so and short enough), so it makes sense to. I'm surprised it's already lacking, though it is hard to name. tobylaneTalk 21:35, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

The North[edit source]

I don't want to stand alone here, but does anyone else think that the North that's always referred to by the Mahjarrats is the Wilderness? Or possibly even the members-only gated area? Maybe Kolodion, the Mage Arena overlord, is giving them asylum and a place to regroup and train on the god mages inside. Not to sound overtheatrical, but maybe the Chaos Elemental has some connection to the Balance Elemental (i.e. opposites, so maybe the BE (balance elemental) favors Guthix and the "good guys" and the Chaos Elemental is the opposite. Jekyll and Hyde, kind of. Any comments?

The seeable Wildy ends at the ocean. Something else on the other end of that ocean is the north, another area that may or may not still count as wilderness. To the west is probably too cold/troll-y for these people who often come from the desert.

The north volcano[edit source]

I've never notice tha a volcano was there. Can smeone tell me want's this volcano used for?? When u're there there're earthquakes, and there's a bridge. What is this location??

A question[edit source]

There's an extraordinarily shiny place just west of stealing creation; level 14 wilderness. Does anyone know what that place is? Revs dont seem to go there I think this should be mentioned...

bad_fetustalk 18:19, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Extra Obelisk[edit source]

I noticed an obelisk just south-east of Rogues' Castle. Why not include it on the Wilderness Obelisk table? Fishing.png NnK Oliver (600613) talk 03:59, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

Exp[edit source]

I know the PvM experience is 4 x damage, but i never read anywhere or haven't heard any method of calculation of the PvP exp/damage. Is it the same as for revenants (1 x damage)? Please answer, help is appreciated. Also, is it the same for every place (Duel Arena, FoG, Wilderness)?--Snowball (2006 Christmas event) 5.png Alex1496 Snowball (2006 Christmas event) 5.png 20:35, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

"Why enter the Wilderness?"[edit source]

Um, why is the article laid out like this? It's really weird and no other article is written this way. Can we make it look more like the Varrock and East Ardougne pages instead? I don't think we really need to be drawing special attention to the fact that Edgeville Bank is closer to the Mind Altar than Falador. --troacctid 00:53, July 14, 2010 (UTC)

Untitled[edit source]

Perhaps Forinthy is an old name for the large area that is now the wilderness? Coelacanth0794 19:45, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

I think that's likely. I thought Forinthry was a real word, but I've just looked it up and it so isn't. How strange. I guess Jagex have been planning this for a while. 20:51, September 16, 2010 (UTC)
Well, looks like that was the case. With the release of the Forinthry Dungeon, it was said that the Wild used to be called that. Da_Dragon555 20:40, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

Lowest leveled person to survive the Wilderness[edit source]

THis recently happened today aroundtime: 3 or 4 p.m. date: 12/24/2010 level: 59 named: ROTFLOL GUY

It is belived now that this person is the lowest leveled person to make it to lvl 56 wilderness and survive, the person's friend posted a youtueb video about it also has over 3,000 views in the last hour or so. He has gone to every edge of the wilderness and survived, he came back from the wilderness after spending 1 hour fighting a revenant goblin with a bronze dagger. He nearly died doing it too he made the video to show why it was a bad update that was done about eh wilderness, how now it has become a miniature pvp world.

He yelled at revenants saying he would die for them to make them put it back to being a non pvp world type thing.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lalmatia9 (talk) on 01:08, December 25, 2010 (UTC).

I survived it at level 1. --Iiii I I I 01:12, December 25, 2010 (UTC)
K Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 01:14, December 25, 2010 (UTC)
Whats the name of the video?

Bounty hunter section[edit source]

Should the bounty hunter section be removed, since it is no longer relevent to the wilderness?

Multi-combat areas and Luring PKers[edit source]

How the heck am I supposed to lure and decimate (and loot!) PKers without a decent map of the multi- and single- combat areas in the Wildy?!? Here is the greatest opportunity for me since I got PWNED! as a newb, and I have no map to plan where to bury the bodies... er, I mean, bones of my enemies?!? Oh, for shame! -- TheLastWordSword 00:32, February 4, 2011 (UTC)

Wilderness back to PVP[edit source]

I found the Wilderness Referendum a little restricted to opinion and I would like for the contributers of this wikia to read this. I agree that many people want the wilderness back into PVP. I also voted in favor for that but only because I wanted free trade. I think that instead we could have a compromise. Jagex could have made a new area for PVP action for those fierce PKers. I for one, would like to benefit from the various things the wilderness can offer like a very good skilling area for prayer in the chaos altar. Then revenants can still roam the wilderness and PKers could kill all they want. Please post your comments!

I think the whole thing was screwed up, unfair, corruptible but this is not a forum to discuss it. (btw, we're a wiki, Wikia is the host wikifarm) Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 00:45, March 1, 2011 (UTC)
Oops sorry didn't know that.

Strange Green Hill?[edit source]

When I was in the wilderness I stumbled across a strange grassy hill with a statue of a warrior and a gravestone. What is it?

That is the old Knights grave. He was an early rs player who died.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 122.57.175.225 (talk) on 12:57, April 13, 2015 (UTC).

Deep Wilderness Dungeon[edit source]

Why is this dungeon not mentioned?

Add a Trivia section.

There's lots to be found in the Wilderness.

help..?[edit source]

I'm level 45 and I've never gone into the wilderness. Will it help to improve my level if I do and train my combat there? I've just played it safe so far.. I'm not sure if I want to risk anything! Any tips?

Wheres the dead trees for the Wilderness Fishing Spot????

While you are new, I would reccommend exploring the wilderness, as there are few people low enough level to attack you. Have fun and take only what you wont mind losing (Well, anything that you don't use or can easily replace) Have fun!

a sign of the times[edit source]

a portent/sign of item protection no longer protects items in wildy. I found this out the hard way today.-- Seren symbol.pngHeavyoak Talk Zaros symbol.png 15:19, August 13, 2016 (UTC)
