Hello everyone, I'm E36 (previously known as VR4),
As I'm sure you're all aware the wilderness itself is pretty much dead content. I have a few suggestions that would liven up the PVP scene on the server without affecting the classic Ataraxia feel too drastically for PVMers/skillers while ultimately bringing in a whole other potential player base for PVP. I know PVP isn't very popular on 718 servers, so this is a bit of a shot in the dark.
For those of you who don't know what Wilderness Warbands is; refer to https://runescape.fandom.com/wiki/Wilderness_Warbands
This used to be on Ataraxia prior to the reset if I recall correctly, so it shouldn't be too hard to implement while also giving us a new event to do to get some nice skilling xp. This also used to give a chance of receiving an equipment dye (blood, 3rd-age, barrows).
Wilderness Key System:
The wilderness key system would simply be keys of different colors being dropped by NPCs in the wilderness. You take the key to a specific location on the map in the wilderness, dig with a spade, fight a boss that makes you red skull (meaning all items are dropped upon death with or without prayer on) and dig up treasure with a set amount of coins, and random drops of sorts, and of course some sort of rare drop. This could also drop clues, or potentially add a new point system for a shop to upgrade Ancient Warrior (otherwise known as PVP gear) such as Vesta to their Superior version. Refer to http://runescape.wikia.com/wiki/Superior_Ancient_Warriors%27_equipment.
Revenants would drop keys for the wilderness key locations more frequently than most NPCs in the wilderness. They would also drop artifacts that can be turned in for either points for the superior shop, or coins.
Wilderness Bounty Hunter System:
A wilderness bounty hunter system would allow you to get a target in the wilderness that could be tracked via a command of sorts. I.E "Your target is Player 123456." ::targetlocation (or whatever) "Your target is 50 steps South 45 steps North." or something similar.
All of this, if executed properly, would also promote the use of clans to coordinate through the wilderness when someone receives a rare drop from wilderness keys. It would also make people want to join clans, or teams, to be able to control the revenant cave.
I truly believe this would start a whole new type of gameplay for Ataraxia while hardly interfering with current gameplay.
