real questers competed edg's in storymode even though it wasnt a quest cape requirement, because they are passionate about RS lore

from an immersive role play perspective (and its a RPG so dont give me any "but i dont chose to role play" crap) you could very easily slap the title of quest onto any EDG

so you have to run past and kill some monsters? dont u remember the elder kiln quest, where u had to run through rooms with monsters in killing some of them?

hell if you choose to look at edgs as a quest series all rolled together (which you can break up into parts as jagex kindly make it save your progress every single barrier you lower inside an edg) then how is it any differnt to having to kill that armadillo in the first thzaar quest, then otehr bosses in later quests?

the issue here, is that your not a quester.

not a REAL quester.

your a half arsed QP cape chaser, just like those half arsed comp (t) players who walk about with 1600 ish runescore

as long as you continue to be a half arsed cape chaser, you will end up being surprised and disappointed

for us real questers, this was not only expected and appropriate, but welcome, exciting and immersive

its actually one of my favourite quests now, it had me laughing out loud repeatedly!

the thing is, the EDG's are not simply shoehorned into this quest to bulk it out or add artificial hardness, they re an integral part of the lore and the storyline, including the scraps you find in the edg's to form books, and the edg bosses are basically the quest bosses

a fairer way of viewing things would actually be that they made a super epic quest, cut all the combat sections into 3 chunks, and allowed you do to the first 2 chunks before the rest of the quest was released, and added a repeatable hardmode to the combat sections with good rewards

if they had called it that, no one would have felt they had a right to complain about it, and as such its nothing more than a matter of labling

removing the edg;s from this quest would be like removing guthix temple with the tormented demons fight from while guthix sleeps, or removing the final ritual site battle from ritual of the mahjarrats

Sums it up pretty well.

The thing is: A player who was able to wear the quest cape before this quest had certainly beaten harder boss fights than ED story mode - unless they've darted their way through those instead of learning how they work. But the question would be: Who keeps them from darting those new bosses as well?


After the last 7 years worth of failed lore you shouldn't even talk.


see the problem is aqua, everyone whos used these forums for any time knows you, what ever name you use, because your posting style is always the same

you contradict yourself repeatedly, and you do so because you dont give a damn in reality about anything on runescape

all you care about is annoying people.

thats literally your entire pathetic existence lol

so i dont cafe what you say, its like having a puppy try to savage your ankles - marginally irritation but ultimately of no real consequence

how about you actually go get some opinions instead of just arguing against what any one says

better still, go get a life lol

p.s. i dont actually expect this to happen, or you to take any notice, telling you not to troll is like telling a fish not to swim, your dont have the mental capacity to change lol

If they can't complete Story mode then they need to either get better gear or git gud.

I've disabilities, I can't "git gud"




well you have my sympathies on this issue, but im afraid thats just life

you cant go to the Olympics and ask them to take the jumping out of the long jump event because you have no legs, and you cant go to a computer game and ask them to take the game play out of the game because you personally find it too hard

life is full of things people cant do, but there i no need to go around spoiling it for everyone who can do it and enjoys doing it but telling them they have to change to accommodate you

this isnt like a job where they have to have disabled access, its a leisure activity, and if you cant do this leisure activity, find a different one to do

personally id like to be able to surf, but i dont have the balance to stand up on a board, but i dont go round crying that they should hold surfing competitions on the sand so its easier for me to stand up

You don't "have to" do it in normal mode, though? I mean, you do if you want the rewards, but I imagine questers with a heavy skilling focus don't really care about rewards. Otherwise, they'd PvM and not be creating threads like these. :|
In any event, even a skiller should be able to do a speedrun through story mode with an inventory of sharks, maybe a few pray pots being spent. If that's "too expensive" for them, they're even bad at skilling despite it being the only thing they do... And in that case, I would just quit the game entirely. lol


You do for mqc and comp. Cost me millions to do one storymode dung anyway. Don't get nothing. Haven't even got all pages or anything.. Might as well pay to leach or use darts firs time.


liar.

you dont have any members account and you dont even play the game

so stop lying troll

the only reason for people to be against the EDs beig included in the quest. It's a matter of principle as well, completing the EDs mixes pieces of content that usually wouldn't go together.... having to do three long, somewhat unrelated pieces of content .


um the only ED's that have ever been released have been part of a quest

this means ed'g being part of a quest is 100% normal, as all edg's released have always been part of a quest, so that point is invalid

pieces of content that usually wouldnt go together?
like i said, if you actually think about it for a moment, they are pieces of content that ALWAYS go together

somewhat unrelated?
no. if you have been paying attention, reading all the books and lore, and not just space barring through dialogue, they are no unrelated. they are not loosely related. they are in fact the same story, the same plot, and all integral to it

take a big long quest, chop out the 3 main combat sections, and call then and elite dungeon so they can be repayable, and there you have it

these are not unrelated sections of content being shoehorned into a quest, they are sections of a quest that have been cut out, renamed and made replayable in hardmode for profit and fun
