I could see the use in a shortcut after Mourning's End Part 1. Before then trivializes getting to the elven lands.

Really though, there's already a shortcut at that point through the gates. We don't need another one.

Secondly, even touching Underground Pass's spaghetti code will probably cause bugs elsewhere in the game. Bugs that the OSRS dev team has consistently proven they're unable to notice, or QA before release.

I see no reason that they should not have the shortcuts. All they were, was a delay to doing what you really should be doing.


Because the whole point of the regicide quest is going through the inpenetrable underground pass to reach the elven lands, which have been sealed off from the rest of the world because of how brutal the passage is and how it's the only way through the mountains, besides the door that is heavily guarded??

Regicide is an endurance quest. You trudge through the underground pass, again, reach somewhere that hasn't been reached by humans in ages, then deal with even more traps and treachery.

Quests aren't about point A and point B, they're about the journey and how they're different for everyone. All the best, difficult classic quests, Underground Pass, Shilo Village, and Legend's quest, involve numerous treks through dungeons that are actually interesting to play through.

Forsaking this design philosophy from the old jagex means trivializing some of the most truly remote places in the game. Remember, when these quests came out, there wasn't even a run option. It's already been made easier for you.

Master quests don't need shortcuts.
