Some thoughts I had:

Sliske never leaves empty-handed.
Judging by his secret study in KS, and the fact he kidnapped Nomad.
I suspect he found a way around Mahjarrat 'facing the void', as Jhallan demonstrated.
If he can contain a Mahjarrat soul, he can make a wight out of them. A very powerful wight.

Zamorak and Zaros
The Elders are dormant or vacant, Mah is the only immediate danger the two must face.
My guess is Sliske will fill the void left by Mah, becoming the next major, immediate threat.
I feel Zamorak and Zaros deserve their own conflicting quest, and that this is just a reunion.

Freneskae
When a Mahjarrat is sacrificed, their energy pulsates globally, causing the strange power.
With Mah herself as the target, the anima dispersed should be of higher quality/quantity.

The point is, if there are any survivors of other tribes, even on the far corners of Freneskae.
They'll gain a rejuvenation. Though not as strong as the Mahjarrat in the vicinity.

Wasn't it said that Zaros has no experience in combat, and that he would sacrifice his empire to ensure his own safety?

Come to think of it, he rarely does get his hands dirty. The only times he personally took action was in the extreme moments. Impaling Zamorak in a fit of rage and protecting Seren from the Muspah.

Even when he took on Loarnab, he only intervened once hundreds of demons had died.
Still not lifting a finger himself, but summoning otherworldly tendrils to attack for him.

Seren is no warrior either, hiding behind walls and playing the pacifist got her this far.
But she stated she will do anything to prevent Zaros ascending, along with promising to remind Sliske how light can burn.

They are both showing a more combatitive side than in previous ages.
Choosing between the two is seeming more and more likely.

If one was to steal a Mahjarrat's forehead gem, could they use it to make bane weaponry?
more importantly, would you be able to make bane weapons out of god body parts? I imagine icthlarin might be happy to donate a finger or so, provided you agree not to murder him or his sister


Godbane does sound pretty cool.
Perhaps Zaros giving us a shard of his body could be a grave mistake.

Mah is sounding evermore untouchable the longer we analyse her, and the top plan seems to be draining her back into a dormant state, assuming Elder Gods are truly indestructible.

But once she returns to an empty, dozing husk. She would be prone to waking again.
We would be back at square one, waiting for her to be stimulated into consciousness.

So I wonder, could trapping Mah in the shadow realm be an alternative?
Maybe even a fail-safe?

Yes she is a being of pure light and dark energy, and could easily return to the material plane.
But she could barely wake up and claw at the volcano peak when at her lowest.
I reckon that it is possible if done in the right order, with careful planning and cooperation.

Its worth remembering that Zamorak has access to the Rift.
Rituals may be totally redundant, giving them no reason to spare the Zarosians.

So I would expect multiple deaths, even if the immediate threat, Mah, requires absolute cooperation from everyone present.

i would say zaros being around is a pretty good reason not to kill the zarosians

plus, saradomin didnt have any reason not to kill 'the zarosians' when he came to gielinor but he just teleported them all away to oddly character-specific locations


That is a good point, considering the lengths Zamorak and Saradomin went through to hide all traces of Zarosian existence. Destroying Senntisten and hunting the dragon riders for instance.

They all appear reformed with the Sixth Age, improved philosophies and so on.
Could Zamorak have respect for Zaros surviving, becoming stronger through the betrayal?

You mean that he would start respecting Zaros again just like that? Would that make for a great story?At least I don't think so.


Out of context. Zaros' survival further proving Zamoraks ideology is deserving of merit.
Overall respect however, that is up for grabs since there are bigger fish to fry.

That will be interesting to see.
Zaros and Seren in the same room, with their 'attraction' effect.

Even Seren without a reforged soul was luring Zaros back in TLW.
Yet the flashback moments later had the two bickering like an old married couple.

Has the their time apart made their presences more irresistibly tempting?

Game-play wise, we will be exploring new areas around the volcano, maybe further away.

So is it likely we will come across remnants of the Mahserrat civilisation?
Maybe even some dragon ore straight from the rocks?

It wouldn't need direct interaction with the quests goals, but it would make for some quality post-quest content.

Wahisietel is also Sliske's brother, though that shouldn't be the reason for distrust, as he has proven an ally in all past occasions.

Same way Akthanakos wasn't alerted to Zaros' return. Having a small inner circle just makes their plans easier overall. Besides, they will probably have their own tasks to attend to once the time comes.

I honestly hope we start in the Senntisten temple.

Not just to compete with team Zammy's floor 61, but because team Zaros has come along way since the Digsite quest. We have made so much progress.

I would also like to see the Assassin and Eblis for a final time, even Viggora had the luxury for a cameo appearance.

Shadow Realm for added security, but I was mostly referring to the inner circle, not the entirety of Bandit camp.

No doubt we could deal with the examiners regardless.
Remember how Azzanadra dealt with that one guy upon leaving the pyramid.

'While his face lasted, that is'. -Azzy.

So you mean they should "deal with" everyone on the digsite? D:


In the extreme case that they become an obstacle, that words alone can't deter.
Remember how calm and collected Azzy was during his entrance in TWW.

that sounds sarcastic, but I dont remember him raving like a maniac


Sorry if that came of as sarcastic. I meant it quite seriously. Do we really want Nex or Char leading negotiations in such important events? They were rather eager to resort to violence at Ziliyanas remarks.

Azzanadra, however, was always the level headed one. Which makes him so much more intimidating when he threatens us about the light simulacrum. 'Every ounce of his strength poured into our destruction'. Even Wahisietel has been more approachable despite the ruse.

The World Wakes started out with Orlando, a neutral character. Only later on did the other factions intervene. I can see this being replicated for Kharshai.

I wouldn't instantly dismiss arduous tasks/miniquests being required either.
Hero's Welcome required Barbarian Training, and Kindred Spirits required those Meg cases (whilst they were a thing).

As for the 'Mahjarrat Memories' miniquest. For something of that duration.
It seems more fitting for post-quest rewards. Like upgrading the circuit.

Back on the subject of Mah.

Does it sound possible that Mah could absorb Zaros and Seren, returning her power and inheriting their knowledge and value of sentient life? In a similar way to Seren absorbing Eluned and the Dark Lord.

Zamorak will be in a dangerous environment, surrounded by enemies, light-years away from his legions of Kinshra and Demons, and the safety of Daemonheim. With only his trusted Mahjarrat at his side. This sounds like the perfect opportunity to cross his name off the false user list, if there ever was one.

There may also be left over Orikalkum on Freneskae too. And we know Dragonkin can traverse planets without the World Gate, so does anyone reckon we will see one, however briefly?

About player decisions. We have had many windows to 'change history'. Fully reforming Seren, Zaros' simulacrum, blasting Sliske/Zamorak, Death/Icthlarin slaying Gielinor, the list goes on.

So what is the right way to respond to lore that keeps branching off? An extra miniquest to patch Zaros' wounds, would only cater to those who sabotage and would be rather absurd. Yet outright killing him off due to a previous choice long ago is just as ridiculous, many players may change opinions over the months.

So what is the proper way to handle these moments? Long term, Hazeel missing the Ritual meant nothing, and Nomad chipping the Stone meant nothing. Are we really that influential to the 6th Age?

I suppose the Measures 'double-edged' effect could simply be its ordinary function.
Just used in a different manner.

If its usual purpose is to empower wisps to the point they become tangible.
What do you reckon would happen if we used it on Kami, or even a Protoplasmic Wisp?

I suspect the Measure may be useful with the Engrammeter, they are both great at finding ancient memories. Too bad it became distorted, maybe it is repairable in the future.

I'd thought the reproductive side of the event is not a necessarily a step in the ritual.
But rather an efficient act of using the residue energy to form another of their kind.

Reproducing during an earthquake sounds more like a tradition that simply caught on over the generations of ancestor Mahjarrat obeying the teachings of the false-Mah (Seren).

And about the Mahjarrat population dilemma.
Should we even assume they procreate like humans? It could be like Piccolo for all we know.
Is Moia not on the list with Enakkra? She is still a female Mahjarrat, somewhat.
And can't Mahjarrat shape-shift to counter this anyway? (Angof for example)
