As for Xau-Tak we learned quite a lot, well by Wilson standards anyway, I just hope that one of the final 2 expansions will be Atlantis.
Final two expansions? To what are you referring?


Jagex stated in their Runescape 2017 Reveals post that they are planning on having three Elf City sized updates next year in June, September, and December. They are calling them expansions. The first one will be Menaphos.
What's the most convincing ship in the game?

People ruling out Auspah already? The Twice Burnt lore story goes into pretty good detail over how radiant they can be with fire, and we've already seen how dangerous they can be when angry. So much so we the World Guardian plot device had to run away.

Eh, radiance, glory, and enlightenment scream light much more than they do fire for me. Plus, do we really want another member of another dead race surfacing once again?

Anyone else notice how the Queen of Ashes powers were described? Rather than the focus on flame, she appears to have a more 'scouring light' power set.

This caught my eye as we only have had 2 gods exhibit similar characteristics. Namely, Seren and Tumeken. It is entirely possible that Queeny is of a brand new race and has nothing to do with characters we don't already know, but that's not as much fun.

Considering we were already introduced to Seren's family, let's pursue the Tumeken angle. For the most part, we know quite a bit about his family and most are set up to appear in the Desert quest line. Except for his species and his wife, that is.

And while it may be interesting to learn more about Tumeken's species, we already know Jagex wants to do more with Elidinis's character than just have her be Tumeken's wife. Knowing that, I postulate that the Queen of Ashes is none other than Elidinis.


I doubt it. I appreciate that they want to do more with Elidinis, but I can't imagine that being that she's the Queen of Ashes, who sounds far more malevolent than Elidinis could be. Osborne does seem to have an idea of who she is, so putting her in a Godless quest or The Mighty Fall wouldn't make sense if she was Elidinis.

Honestly, I'm actually pretty surprised they remembered Queen of Ashes. They went on hyping Xau-Tak so much that it felt like they forgot about her. :P

Yeah. The Queen of Ashes sounded far more interesting in Hero's Welcome, so the Xau-Tak hype hasn't been too exciting. The Queen seems like she'd at least be a good figurehead to keep the Bandosians around.
