With Fot*2's inevitably-seeming buddy-cop duo team-up of the big Z's (though if anyone realistically expects it to last beyond the quest, I think you'll be disappointed), and with the threat of Mah looming over the quest as the pretense for said team-up...

I've been thinking for a while now that the premise is going to be on finding a way to kill an Elder God. With Mah apparently going for her own mini-Revision on Freneskae in the quest, I'd be hard-pressed to believe she won't be stopped. And she's not exactly capable of hearing reason, even if one could speak with her, so taking her out could be the only option.

Depending on how much Jagex want to have Zamorak involved with the Elder God storyline (or any non-Zaros/Seren Gods for that matter), his plan forward could involve the direct, violent method of killing them to stop the Revision. In such a scenario, it would split your options on whose idea you'd wish to support during the Elder God quests...

You could go with Zamorak's newfound plan to kill them, Seren's plan of re-enacting Guthix's change-of-anima-flow plan, or Zaros' transcend-and-reason-with-them plan. Each with its own particular set of downsides and doomsday results if they were to fail, but each with their margin of success if doable.

It would also bring further tension between the Mah-creation God Trio (what is this, Pokemon?) in that they'd all abhor the other's plans. Zamorak would feel there's no way the other plans will work long-term, so they need to kill them off...Zaros would feel Zamorak's method too barbaric and Seren's method too passive...and Seren would feel both the Z's are too dangerous to let loose with such ideas.

And yes, we all know Jagex has said once upon a time that Elder Gods cannot die. But that was then, and we all know how Jagex change things. Plus it'd be a discovery of how to kill them, not a pre-existing one (which would likely be their defence/explanation).

However, I do think that if they were to make Zamorak's plan simply to kill them with straightforward violence, that would be a disservice to the character. If he's involved, hopefully it'll be more in-depth than that.


Well I'm sure if that idea does happen, it's going to involve some fancy anima-tuned weapon which requires special doohickery to create so it actually can affect them.

And by calling it a direct, violent approach I was mostly characterizing the theme of his actions as being direct and violent by way of confronting them combatively, not necessarily in his methods. I'll let Jagex figure out the method itself rather than speculate on an idea that is in itself speculation.

To be honest, why do people keep saying elders can be killed?


If you read that post, you know I acknowledged that it's been said they cannot be killed. I may very well be wrong here, but it's my speculation that we'll discover a way to kill them in the quest. Besides, Jagex's statement on them being killed was, if I recall, that if a way to do it exists it simply hasn't been found yet.

I feel it's right up Jagex's alley to have us discover how to make The Super Mega Hyper Elder God Death Ray of Divine Doom something to defeat an Elder God, then rationalize it by stating that it's a new discovery and one that hasn't existed until the special snowflake World Guardian (and/or Gods we work with to help make it) put their mind(s) to it. Ergo, the statement that they couldn't be killed was true, but only by traditional methods that didn't involve a weaponized Macguffin.

And honestly, with Invention being a theme of the year, and a skill entirely dedicated to imbuing equipment with divine energy to give them fancy effects, it doesn't feel like an enormous stretch to consider putting the skill's effort and use into this on the scale of the Elder God threat.
