It may seem like an ''obvious'' choice, but The World Wakes has my vote. Literally, almost everything we knew about Guthix, the Origin of Gods, and the future changed with this quest.

When Jagex began talking about what the Edicts of Guthix actually were several months ago, whether they were tangible or just a decree, I knew they were up to something. Then the Origins of Gielinor video came out, and I was fairly certain that somehow, some way, the Edicts would be abolished (the foreboding message at the end of it made it seem likely). I assumed we would make something happen, or it would be an accident...never did I actually believe Jagex would be willing to kill-off a major deity. I was shocked when all the well-known WGS heroes died, but killing off Guthix was an enormous move.

In one single quest, everything I ever knew and held-dear in the world of Gielinor came crashing down around me. I know some people have issue with its length and not-so-high difficulty, but the story experience and the lore developments make it worthwhile in my book.

And I'm not ashamed to admit it made me shed tears-of-manly-manliness (*cough*). Hell, it's only one of two times in my gaming life that a game actually made me shed a tear at all, and evoke that kind of emotion (who doesn't love a cathartic moment?). Never in my life would I have figured RuneScape, of all games, would be one to make me cry tear up.

One Piercing Note takes the largest slice of the cake for me. It's just so engaging from the settings, plot flow, to the audio and other minor details.


One Piercing Note stands as a testament to the idea that a Novice-level quest can be fun, engaging, and downright interesting. The community tends to view Novice quests as throwaway nuisance quests, feeling they will always lack what their higher-level counterparts bring to the table.
