Why was Elite Dungeons 1/2/3, tied into this quest? Was it because there wasn't many people doing them, so now forces people to do it?

So I don't think I will be doing this quests. Even Elite Dungeon 1 Story Mode was a pain, annoying, and takes so long to do. To be honest I never really be bother with Elite Dungeons, wasn't interested and find it unnecessarily difficult and time consuming.

The only time when i bother with Elite Dungeon, so when I first explore it on the day of release of Elite Dungeon 1 (and that is the only time i bother with any of the Elite Dungeon).

Now with this quest tied into all 3 Elite Dungeon, I am forced to attempt to do this. I am not a PVMer (only PVM i do is regular slayer). I don't do bossing (and never was good at it), and now i forced to do it (and obviously I am struggling with it), just to do this quest.

So right now all i can say for this quest is RIP and the Quest Flag will remain half-mast...lol

So i support the removal ED1/2/3 as the requirements from the quest.

Also, why isn't the ED1/2/3 requirement stated in the quest log in game, but it does says it in the RuneScape Wiki?

I was in exactly the same position - I'm not a huge PVM'er, and I too don't do bossing (I just don't find it fun).

BUT

with the help of two great clan mates was able to get through ED3 in story mode, and reclaim my precious quest cape, without massive problems.

So don't give up!

Bossing I don't find relaxing at all. You are always constantly on edge to pay attention to all mechanics and remembering every single mechanic in heat of a fight, which is stressful for me. if you fail any any, just just die plain and simple.

At the moment, it the bosses is the one stopping me. Maybe i try again, when i am in the, being less pissed and annoyed.

Honestly, I completely agree with you. Not my kind of thing AT ALL.

But it is doable, truly ;)

I can't kill Seiryu the Azure Serpent in story mode, how am i going to kill it with his health having over 3.7mil. Using Masterwork (T90) and Nox Scythe. The blobs that heals him is annoying...never really reach them on time to stop them healing the serpent..it feels i need a extra person to kill the blobs, while i kill the black crystal. But the thing is Story Mode is only Solo.

Also another thing...I have to run down all 5 floors of the temple each time, to reach the final boss, whenever i leave the dungeon, why can we just have the entrance teleport us to the boss room entrance (once we cleared all the floors)? On the same note it would be nice to teleport to the next floor, once you cleared the previous floor. Not make us run back everytime.

I tried using Deathtouched Darts on it, unfortunately they don't work.

Story mode is definitely NOT only solo - I did all three elite dungeons in story mode, in groups.

Also, you can use the reward chests at checkpoints as quick teleport locations, from one to another :)

I didn't know you can travel between reward chest, i assume you just right-click on them and teleport?

Oh you can use groups in Solo-Mode....only problem with that I have to rely on people to do it. Which means i or we have to clear the whole dungeon yet again. Again I don't know why Jagex Obsession is with content need to be in a group with NO solo-able mode.

All EDG's are soloable, and in story mode it's very very easy to do. The most you have to do is about 15 minutes at a time, as you can log out each time u reach a chest, then log back in the next day and teleport back to that chest

In fact, if u don't mind running for 2-3 minutes, u can log out between chests, and every barrier you lower us saved, and the monsters in areas before the barriers don't respawn

If your having troubles thus allows a trick - run past monsters, kill barrier monsters, Tele out, re-enter, and all the non barrier monsters u ran past will have despawned.

Especially useful for first room in EDG2 - kill 4 "main" blobs then leave via entrance - the 2 other main blobs, and ALL the summoned blobs will have vanished!

Update:
Manage to finally finish the quest "Curse of the Black Stone", it took awhile, but finally its done.

For Elite Dungeon 1 - Temple of Aminishi (Story Mode): It took me like 40min to win the boss fight against Seiryu the Azure Serpent. No matter what his health is, as long as you destroy all 3 black crystal, on his neck collar to win the fight Unfortunately, we can't Deathtouch Dart Seiryu (i tried).

For Elite Dungeon 2 - Dragonkin Laboratory (Story Mode)
: The Boss was annoying, but bit less annoying compare to Seiyu. Didn't have to use Deathtouch Dart on him (so I don't know if the Dart works on him or not).

For Elite Dungeon 3 - The Shadow Reef (Story Mode): The boss "The Ambassador" is the hardest of them all, took me almost whole inventory and yak full of shark just to get him to about half health, and so i teled before I died. For those who wants to just fight him normally, by all means fight him. However for those who doesn't care and just want to do the quest (like me), you can use Deathtouch darts to kill him.

After my failed attempt to kill "The Ambassador", i used my Deathtouch Darts to kill him, and hence finish Elite Dungeon 3.

So now I am happy that I finished the quest! No more Elite Dungeon for me now!
