Ex-RuneScape players are returning to the game by the thousands as PvP is reverted back to how it was pre-2007. This allows players to fight each other in the Wilderness area on any world, rather than just specific PvP worlds.
The dangerous revenents have been moved to the new Forinthry Dungeon and Wilderness-based activities such as Clan Wars and quests such as Spirit of Summer have been moved south of the Wilderness to be less risky to access.
Along with the PvP changes, RuneScape's economy is now a lot less restrictive thanks to the removal of trade limits. Players are now able to trade any amount of coins or items of any value as they wish. This also works over the Grand Exchange. This means that the much sought-after party hats will have just one price rather than a "street price" and a Grand Exchange market price. The economy freedoms also carry over to the Wilderness. Players can now loot the items their victims were carrying.
Trade limits are gone, allowing trades of any amount.
Players try out the new update just north of GE.
When you die, your items drop onto the ground for the killer to take.
