Although I would gladly replay quests for lore content, I just don't think quests in their current form are suitable to be replayed.
Unlike the Fremmy sagas which is basically dungeoneering, quests are just a whole bunch of dialogue, running around, and occasional not so great puzzles (with very rare exceptions). The only redeeming replayable content is the combat, but we have Dominion's Tower for that.I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
Or you can read Robo Hobo's 15 page lore refresher 341-342-160-65440004
Now, even though I am against redoing quests, I do think there should be a lore refresher, since Gwir is nice and all, and so are wikia transcripts, but they don't cut it. I suggested some months ago the idea of "Abridged Quests" where Jagex can update old content and at the same time create a sort of contained quest (like the Fremmy sagas) going through all the highlights and important details of the quest. The idea was mostly for series though, not standalones.I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
I'm not arguing that it's beneficial. I agree it's a win-win situation. I'm arguing that most quests in their current form are not suitable to be replayed. If Jagex was able to do that, then by all means they should, and they probably would have made those quests re-playable by now.
But the fact that they are only making snippets of quests available (like Dominions Tower, repeatable events, repeatable cutscenes etc..) shows that they don't want to make entire quests repeatable. Well, that's how I interpret it at least.I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
