So I decided to buy a bond in OSRS to get myself two weeks worth of pay-to-play and here's something I don't get:
- there's a (mostly) Member's only feature called Treasure Trails. You have to get a clue scroll, which a drop from various monsters in the game, follow different clues on them to get another clue scroll until you eventually get a casket which contains a variety of items
- One of the clue types you can get are coordinate clues, which you can only get on medium, hard, elite, and master clue scrolls
- On hard clues and above, the coordinate clue might require you to go into the Wilderness, which is the sole area of the game for player killing outside of minigames and player-owned houses
- Sometimes players who are doing a hard or higher clue scroll and have to go into the Wilderness will get PKed and then they'll start bitching about griefed
And like, I don't get it? You're going into an area of the game specifically designed for player killing and you're saying you got griefed because someone PKed you???
Like, I actually had a hard Treasure Trail earlier today that did give me a coordinate clue in the Wilderness. Wanna know what I brought with me?
I brought a spade (which you need to dig at the coordinates), the clue scroll itself, and a dragon dagger super poison (because when you're on a hard clue scroll, you have to fight a level 65 enemy when you get a coordinate clue in the Wildy).
So I had three items on me.
Wanna know the number of items you keep by default in RuneScape if you die (to player or monster)?
I was risking absolutely zero wealth and yes, after I killed the enemy and got my next clue, I got PKed. I didn't make a fuss about 'why are you killing someone who's only here for a clue scroll!!' nor bitch about some mean PKer griefing me, I didn't do anything because, like I said, I wasn't risking anything, if I died all that'd happen is I'd respawn at my respawn location and it'd be off to do the next step in my clue scroll, and I was in an area specifically meant for player killing, I'm as much a fair target while I'm in there as someone wearing their best equipment.
Hell, I probably coulda thanked the dude who PKed me because it saved me a trip out of the Wilderness lol.
