RuneScape introduced Bounty Hunter "Wilderness-only" PvP worlds (or "Bounty Worlds") in the update two weeks ago( RuneScape: Bounty Hunter Wilderness-only PvP). The new worlds are limited to the Wilderness, and use the old "who can attack who" levels. Bounty Worlds are basically a mix of 3 previous PvP games: Bounty Hunter, PvP worlds, and the old Wilderness. In short, Jagex increased the chance to get your opponent's items and we added the thrill of hunting a bounty within the Wilderness while surrounded by hundreds of potential PKers.
Firstly, let's check the guide on the official site. It's the best way to understand Bounty Worlds. However, if you are tired of reading the long introduction, just click next page and watch the video guide there.
Some PvP worlds are controlled by the impressively masculine Mandrith, descendent of the first of the tribes of man, those who in the early days of civilisation were the perpetrators of the very first murder to stain the lands of RuneScape. Now, he stands as warden of the volcano at the centre of the Wilderness, which is a scar left on RuneScape by an enraged deity, incensed by this crime.
To enter a Bounty World, you must be standing in the Wilderness or Edgeville, because the rest of the lands of RuneScape are closed off. Edgeville is a safe area, while the area north of the ditch is a hot zone. These worlds follow most of the same rules as ordinary PvP worlds, with the addition of a bounty system.
After spending half an hour in a dangerous area on a Bounty World (which needn't be done all at once), Mandrith will begin searching for an opponent for you, which may take a few minutes, or may take up to an hour. In the meantime, you can continue doing anything you might consider doing on a PvP world (such as killing other adventurers). When you have been assigned a target, their name will appear in the top-right corner of your game window, and an arrow will direct you towards them. Beware, however, because they will also be hunting you! Your target will always have a Combat level within 5 of your own.
To see how likely you are to receive a target, there's a box in the top-right corner that will slowly turn a darker shade of red as the probability increases.
There are a number of rules you must abide by to appease Mandrith's sense of honour:
