I wish we could have learned more of Xau Tak and the QoA from V he seemed to have known some things about them, their intentions and whereabouts. We did have the fallen nihil event which was oriented around the QoA and I can't help but think that Deathbeard is in somehow related to Xau Tak so maybe these two will be making an appearance soon.

I am really hopeful that this will shake things up in the new age and presents us with a powerful foe a God that will require cooperation amongst other Gods or NPCs to withstand or even stand against. Not like Tuska, Xau-Tak is on a much different scale and I hope they capitalize on the opportunity to make this enemy amazing. WE1- Aligned/

When did Guthix ever address Xau Tak, memories or while alive? Where can I reference this dialogue? So he knows or knew of Xau Take WE1- Aligned/

IF this is the "thing" Zaros mentioned to Seren in CoM being "of something else" when referencing Elder Gods, then they are aware of IT, but no concern seems to be shown..



Or even if it is not we have no idea what is coming....




Are the other Gods as dis-concerned or are they oblivious?
Would it matter?
What could they do?

Zaros
Can you save us?
Seren
Can you save us?
Armadyl
Can you save us?
Saradomin
Can you save us?
Zamorak
Can you save us?





"Do you really think you can save them? You can't, The afterlife will mourn your souls decent into writing agony and horror until madness takes you... And this is Xau Tak."


We are hopeless to stop it...

It's also worth noting that the Ripper Demon transformation occurs over the course of days, while the being behind the door in The Weeping would have been within that room for much much longer (being in an abandoned Zarosian structure in a room that must have been sealed for a very long time given the description of the air within).

All indications point to the being having been deliberately locked away before or during the empire's fall. It almost sounds like a banshee, though I wouldn't really describe them as hulking. Maybe a cave horror, though I wouldn't call their arms spindly and their cries are said to be a mixture of anguish and bloodthirsty roars. Edimmu almost fits, but there's again the issue of the importance placed on the vocalizations.

Not sure what it was, but I'm doubting a Xau-Tak connection. Seems more likely it was a Zarosian experiment (one of Zaros's attempts at making life or one of the bioweapons the empire developed) that twas deemed a failure and locked away.

Really though, The Weeping and Pestilent Journal serve to identify Herbert Dunwich as an outcast of the 3rd age who got around a lot, poked his nose into dangerous situations along the way, and lived to write about them.


Where is the Weeping Journal?

This may be off the wall and unrelated but the journals released detailed 3 entities of form correct?

Could this at all somehow be the Obsidian Tribunal that had Saradomin's daughter on a "tomb world'?

I remember Mod Wilson once said there were things in game we still hadn't discovered, did we ever find any more Xau-Tak references that had not been previously discussed? WE1- Aligned/
