1.) It'd be great to learn more about his initial interactions with the races that he brought to Gielinor in detail. They can't all have gone smoothly, with no lack trust. How did the gnomes react differently than the dwarves or the human tribes? What were their home worlds like? Their societies? What did Guthix do while there?

2.) Guthix's interactions with the other gods (similar to Bandos, Seren, V, etc.) after awakening to establish the Edicts.

3.) Learning about the remaining Guardians of Guthix would be great.

Why is this even a debate? We know that Zamorak was both a powerful mage and skilled in melee combat, the two aren't mutually exclusive. Even on Freneskae, where their magic was vital to survival, he was presumably the fifth most powerful of the mahjarrat. And after centuries of experience in organized warfare on Gielinor, he naturally adopted plenty of skill as a melee combatant, to the point where he was even able to even surpass Azzanadra as the most powerful of their number. There are plenty of examples of Zamorak using both (Twice Burnt, Kharshai's memory, a compilation of mod quotes, etc.)

Also, being a powerful mage doesn't necessarily mean that you have a lot of abstract magical knowledge. Saying that Zamorak wasn't a powerful mage because he stabbed Zaros with the staff is like saying someone isn't a powerful mage because they don't know about ancient magicks or any other number of spells hidden to the mages of any given time or place. Additionally, Zamorak didn't even stab Zaros until he realized how to use the staff.
