Werewolves have a small role in RoB according to Mod Stu. I wonder if Gar'rth will be mentioned at all. I hope so if there's other references to the sun spear.

wonder if there will be werewolves on our side since they are also being opresed by vyres, though I kinda doubt peeps at jagex considered that possibility.

I doubt they'll do that since Rowl*y thinks the vampyres vs werewolves trope is overdone. Plus, at this point there wouldn't be much in-game explanation for it. Still, I would have loved for them to intertwine the werewolf and Myreque stories since they're in such similar positions and it would have added an extra layer to the plot. It could also have made for an interesting dynamic among the werewolves as well, as many are too fearful of and servile to the vampyres (basically uncle Tom-type of characters) to oppose them. So not only would there be trust issues between the werewolves and Myreque but also with the werewolves to each other.

If they ever actually do a werewolf spinoff quest/series after Myreque, though, it'd be redundant for them to do another story about fighting oppression.

It is hinted that Gar'rth might make an apperance in the quest. I say this because of what the King said. He said something along the lines of "Someone who knows the land well and has crossed paths within Morytania before... I know just the person." This was at the very end of LoV after we return to the king to tell him about what happened. Come the Sixth-Age, the world will need the World Guardian.

So it looks probable that Safalaan is a wyrd in RoB. I wonder if they'll reference the first one...or reveal that there are many others that we just weren't aware of.

In the dialogue where people seem to think that Roald was referring to Gar'rth, he was actually talking about the player.

Well they hardly had a role, but it seemed like the role they did have was hinting at a possible spin off questline or quest. Hopefully we get Gar'rth then.


Also, I think maybe Ivandis will be a werewolf. His diary sounded more like he was becoming a werewolf than a vampyre because of the "Blood Ritual".

Werewolves will likely be the focus of a Myreque spinoff quest(s), yes, several mods have wanted to do one for years but the main series was given priority. I'll be disappointed if Gar'rth doesn't play a large role. He should probably be one of the main protagonists. And with werewolves able to cross the Salve now, Jerrod could get involved as well. Hopefully that won't mean he can't play a part in a quest about Hazeel retaking Ardougne though.

Werewolves can't transfer lycanthropy. Jerrod has confirmed this and Mod Osborne has confirmed that they're their own race. Personally, I think their origin would be more interesting if their ancestors were human but, through some sort of dark magic (maybe draw influence from wendigo legends), were cursed. It shouldn't be transferable, though. Ivandis also notes that silver and garlic were not having a pronounced enough effect on him, implying that they were still having at least some effect. Wolfbane daggers are silver but we don't know if werewolves in RS are normally affected by it or if the wolfbane daggers have other properties that make them unique. Nothing implies that werewolves are weak to garlic.

Jerrod could recruit some werewolves to help him with Hazeel. Zamorak's main forces are already quite large and beyond what he's needed to use thus far, but Hazeel could profit from their company.

I'd like to see some illegal blood ring started in Canifis. I'm sure the true borns are still keen to get their fill. This way, werewolves could continue hunting and kidnapping humans from Varrock. They'd just have to be a lot smarter about it.

If Jerrod got involved, I could see him personally going after the phoenix gang as a form of revenge.
