A few things to ponder and please share your thoughts om them as well

Likes
1. World Guardian Unleashed. That was flat out insanely awesome. I really hope we see this power again in future content. It was unexpected yet our character seemed to know about it all along.

2. The siblings. What is up with zaros and seren? It seems when they work together they can even over come the power of Jas as they teleported through her enchantment and attacked sliske.

3. Best friend. Icy as a pup follower was fantastic and adorable.

4. Meeting Jas. Jas was equally terrifying and majestic. And very to the point. She reminded me a lot of kerapac.

5. Armadyl. We perhaps learned more about armadyl than anyone else and he is truly fascinating now.

6. Sliskes End. The fight was fantastic. The debate kver who the most powerful mortal is can be put to rest. It's the world guardian.

Dislikes

1. Deaths. There were none of them. I tried to manufacture as much conflict as possible. No deaths.

2. Children of Mah. I feel like this quest was ignored. Your experience may have been different but I was looking forward to the Legatus Maximus command from Zaros. Also most of the mahjarrat were absent again.

3. Best friend. We didnt get icy as a pet. :(

4. Nomads choice. Im not sure sparing nomad during elegy makes a difference. I was hoping hed rebel against sliske just as the barrows brothers did.

5. Saradomin. He's still alive and useless and boring.

6. Sliskes end. We finally get to fight a series antagonist one on one amd it was epic but it feels cheapened by how sliske survived. Even when we win, we lose.

Going forward

1. How does sliskes way of survival effect future events?

2. Does our world guardian status matter anymore?

3. Is Zaros descending into madness?

4. What do the dragonkin do now?

5. No Xau-tak references?

6. Icy pet plz?

I just wanna target some of the points raised. I have little knowledge or opinion on the rest.

1. World-Guardian Unleashed: When that effect kicked in, I started loregasming at the idea that Guthix might have planned something more for us, beyond protection from the gods. I thought perhaps Guthix figured out a way to cheat on godhood, allowing us, World-Guardians, to tap into dormant power to ascend to a level of power equal to that of a god, without the stone of jas, without losing our god-repelling shield and by keeping our mortality intact.

Unfortunately, World-Guardian Unleashed was not adressed later on in the quest and seems like it was a one-off. I was expecting some new lore about a loophole in godhood. Now thinking about loopholes in godhood does arise an old question...
IZ GUFIX REELLY DED!?!?!!1!!?

4. I gotta agree, I was impressed by Jas, even under the Java client's limitations. Good job on Jagex for designing an impressive looking deity who really makes you feel humbled by their presence within an, honestly, outdated coding system.

I was midly surprised by Jas being Sliske's master though. Makes you wonder why Jas bothered interacting with Sliske at all when It questions even the worth of mortal life.

Looping back to topic #1, I was expecting some kind of aknowledgement about Guthix coming from Jas for having maintained the anima stable for so long. Makes you wonder if striving to maintain the Anima Mundi stable is worth doing at all, considering that Jas did not comment the recent disruptions on the Anima Mundi.

6. Sliske's End: I was only mildly thrilled by the fight itself. What really picked up my interest was the final cutscene where we fought over the Staff of Armadyl (and I also was surprised HOW DID THAT GET IN MY HANDS IN THE FIRST PLACE?). I dug every second of that confrontation.

I felt my heart racing when we were both holding the staff horizontally and there was that one second where none of us moved. I TOTALLY thought "he's so gonna try to stab me with the staff :O". For a second, I thought the World-Guardian thought the same way as I did, since I don't recall seeing us getting stabbed. I thought we did a small waist curve to the side to dodge the staff, but then we faint after that, so it's unclear. Plus, we heard Sliske's laugh echo later on, hinting at him still be alive somehow, just without a body.

Anyway, great cutscene. Had some great action going on in it along with those heartbeat-skipping moments which lead you to anticipate the worst. I'd rate 10/10

Two points you touch on. World guardian unleashed...could be a part pf guthix in us as there is a part of sliske now..
2. How long has sliske been in the service of jas? Did jas order guthix slaying? We know zaros didnt and in ks sliske thanks his master (jas) showing him how to use the staff.

Zaros only invokes the contract if Zamorak is the first to the stone. He even has a similar contract with Saradomin if he reahes the stone.

I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?
- We call it being a hero.
