Bandos was nothing more than a schoolyard bully, who instigated war. that being said, the only reason his death was tragic was because he was killed off in temporary content. neither zamorak or bandos are required for a peaceful world.

Neither is saradomin nor any god required for a peaceful world.Gielinor was much more peaceful without any god.
NO
I do not ship ZamorakxZaros.
I follow them. And Marimbo, the best t5 god.

It was empty until Guthix found and shaped it, and then introduced life that...made an ecosystem and ended up fight...yeah. Even Ful treated the TokHaar and TzHaar like toys, and they had a culture of fighting since the Kiln was created.

The only God with a good "peace record" is Seren. Once others came in, it was an all out warzone. Don't try to blame Zaros either...the Gods were warring by the time he showed up.

The leaves Saradomin, Armadyl, and the Pantheon. Somehow I doubt the Pantheon was the biggest aggressor here...
Runescape doesn't need a hero...it needs a villain. An all encompassing force of evil that will remain ever-threatening and use chaos to make the peoples of Gielinor tolerate each other, grow strong together, and fight side by side against this evil. I am that villain.

There's a difference between starting wars (bandos, zamorak, zaros in empirebuilding mode) and using war to try to end those wars (armadyl, saradomin, the pantheon)

saradomin's probably halfway... if he came upon a largely peaceful world, he might entirely leave them alone, but he might also think their peace isnt peace-y enough and try to conquer them and set up his own laws, or he might turn them all into warriors and use them to conquer other worlds

if zamorak ever saw any form of peace, he'd set it on fire

Funny considering the latter started all the wars. The 2nd Age Wars started before Zaros or Zamorak showed up and the God Wars started before Bandos showed up.

oh, then I am a bit mistaken, i guess

I thought Zaros showed up at a time where there wasn't exactly peace, but most of the known gods weren't around yet... and that he then started conquering all that land

I have explored from one end of the universe to the other, and at its furthest point discovered a perfect world - the final work of the elders. Many of the races I encountered on my journey have flocked to this perfect world, led here by their deities... but this world does not belong to them. They carve out territories and scar the land with their petty skirmishes. They must be taught obedience. As a child of the creators, I feel it is my duty to bring these young gods to heel. My ability to enforce loyalty does not compel ascendant beings, only the lower mortals and my old companions. I will have to resort to baser methods. To this end, I have brought my own lower races to this world. If the young gods will not heed my words or recognize my divinity, then they will be made to listen.

While this does suggest he might have started wars as well, despite his claims that he did not, it also shows that the other Gods were constantly warring well before Zaros came along.

Zaros also claims he didn't start wars. While seemingly contradictory to what we know, there's a lot of evidence suggesting otherwise. Rather than start a war, it appears that Zaros just took his massive army and threatened a smaller nation. Like the people of Sennistien, most just gave up without bloodshed. Some resisted and attacked Zaros army, such as the Desert folk who according to the jmods, actually attacked Zarod first.

"I did not start wars; I was just better at them" Maybe he fooled them to start the war. Or maybe he got them to wars in the same way soviet Russia got Finland to war...

By saying they shot first.
