Tell me who would you consider to be Gods that "had to go"?

Bandos had his flaws and his merits, but was he a villain? He could have proven useful and Mod Jack even stated in the Lore Q&A
Bandos
went from being the warmongering god to the honorable god of combat and in Mighty Fall he was ret-conned back to how he was portrayed in the Goblin series as a way to be done with his story. There was much more that could have been done there.

He showed capability of working with Saradomin and Armadyl to take out Zamorak so he wasnt beyond reason. I will say that on paper when compared to the other gods I can see why people would see him as the villain perhaps alongside Zamorak but
Bandos
motives and desires were always clear as opposed to other gods who keep so many secrets.

What you see is what you got with
Bandos
and I can at least respect that. I do wonder though how the story would have unfolded had he not died in WE2 and what impact would he have had later on.

Bandos
could have been done and handled better instead of easily just being killed off, becoming a god of combat and strategy instead of brute who kills for sport, I have a whole concept for how WE2 I think should have played out if Bandos lost, humbling him and seeing mercy the first time in his life giving him great character development.

I don't think that bringing Gods back cheapens death, if anything I believe Gods should be the only beings who can be revived, if not outright immortal. Mortals should not be able to come back to life this includes Zanik, unless it was a powerful enough God to revive them.

But Guthix embraced his death and would not want to come back, his final words were "forget me."

Killing gods should not be so easily thrown about as they have been it makes being a god look like it isn't really worth it if they're easily killed.

Bandos was killed by Armadyls Divine Energy weapon
Tuska was killed by Vorago's beam of Anima
V was drained of his energy via the Elder Mirror
Gielinor was made of souls and killed by Icthlarin or Death using Nomads spear?
Zamorak was Almost killed by Saradomin in BoL.

Being a god just paints you as something to be killed which I dislike and they cannot be all powerful if they are just as susceptible to death as we mortals are. My point is, they should not be able to be killed unless it by an Elder God itself, yes they dont't age but in mythology and even religions gods are immortal.

Would have made a lot more sense for them to put the God Sagas out before we had to do all this God siding for the Endgame so we got to know the Gods more personally.

Agreed. I also remember most of what was in Bandos's Memories was based on work written by Mod John A which unfortunately because of World Event 2, had to be altered. He even stated on an old forum post that if there happened to be anything that didn't seem to match, the solution would have to be that "Bandos was lying."



Yea I don't like that was done either and they didn't seem to want to paint him in a better light and it was just easier to let him die as he was and people think the worst of him. He was not one of the more popular factions and had more antagonist qualities than other gods so he was just kind of discarded.

He was at least made a decision on and not built up whereas V was built up as this new god who was going to ascend and is just killed off to somewhat further the Dragonkin storyline. So I do feel you lol

I do think it would be a good idea to make
Bandos
the title of the New War God that way his memory is commemorated, Say if Zarador were to take up the mantle and claim the title of "Bandos" for the faction.
