Combining sections[edit source]

Right now the Features, Bosses, and Positives sections are all long, and have a lot of the same information in them. What would be the best way to combine some of this for readability, if we decided to do that at all? Herberjer (talk) 19:22, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

I agree that the organization of the page could use a major improvement. I think the first thing to do would be to get rid of the "negatives" and "positives" sections, as the "negative" of wilderness risk is covered elsewhere, and the "positives" of wilderness features can be covered separately. Then, we could group the "positives" together with other features and bosses into a big category. What if we had "Features" be the main category, with subsections for "Skilling", "Resource Collection", "Monsters" (with a subsection for bosses, perhaps), and so on?

I really like the changes you've made to make the sections easier to navigate. What do you think about the order, though? I'm thinking something along the lines of: Unique Mechanics, PKing, Notable Locations, Skill Training, Bosses, Transportation, Miniquests, Development, Other. Or something along those lines Herberjer (talk) 07:53, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
I think Unique Mechanics should definitely come first, as it is the most important and defining characteristic(s) of the Wilderness. After that, I think Locations should be pretty high up, as (given that the Wilderness is one big area) information about the smaller areas around the Wilderness is pretty important. (By the way, feel free to add new sections to that Locations table. There's some stuff missing from it like the Mage Arena that probably should be there). I think the Wilderness Bosses are more unique and important to the Wilderness than the different skilling stuff, since you can train all those skills outside the wilderness as well, but I can see an argument for swapping the skilling to be higher up.
I had originally put Transportation higher up so it was closer to the Locations, and on other location pages (like Rellekka) it seems like transportation is usually pretty high up as well. I like the idea of moving the PKing section up as it's one of the first things associated with the Wilderness, and it would be a nice follow up to the Unique Mechanics section. Miniquests, Other Features, and Development History are all pretty minor, so I don't mind shuffling them around if you have a reason to. That said, the information about the Development History is essentially trivia in my eyes, and I'm not sure I like the idea of it splitting up the "actual content" of what's in the Wilderness today. Thanks for you edits and help on the page; I defo wouldn't have known it was in such a bad spot if you hadn't brought it up! :) BigDiesel2m (talk) 08:08, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

Updated Map[edit source]

Does anyone have a Current version of the world map with Wilderness overlay information? The current header picture includes the black map square filled in by Making Friends with My Arm, which while not part of the Wildy, could look better as the main image of the page.
