Alright, been thinking of this for a long period of time now…


Imagine the possibility to be a Dwarf, how cool wouldn't that be?!

It would also increase the Character customization, amount of quests and possibility of more requirements, roaming around the World as a dwarf, would be super cool!

Since there are dwarves in the story, I Think this would be super cool, super fun!

100/100 I would turn into a Dwarf for sure! :D



And maybe the possibility to be an Elf?! Also really cool, to use the Elf race customation, you have to complete the Plague's End quest :o

The list is long! Just imagine ladies & gentlemen the ability to be a Dwarf, Elf or w/e! :D

The lore of RuneScape would need to be changed completely to reflect you being a different species. Most quests imply directly or indirectly that you're human. How would an elf suddenly regain access to the Elven Lands? The quests involving H.A.M. would be weird. Doing the Dwarven quest series as a dwarf would be weird too.

Dwarves don't have Magic, so goodbye to that skill. The different species also have different qualities, skills and powers, needing different reworks of the game for each species to make them playable lore-wise.

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

But what of the rest of the game that becomes completely unimportant? The content of being a dwarf would be very tiny compared to what's already out there after 18 years of updates. The RS Wiki needs a hand, and Bwian's will gladly take the rest of your body!

Actually nothing becomes unimportant with new player races. The only thing that would be abit of a challange is the Equipment, it would require new item models, which also would take a quite awhile to make. But I see no issues of the lore being harmed in any way. The ability of being a Dwarf or elf would rather be a cosmetic feature. It's like the World Wakes quest, Guthix dies (I Think it was World Wakes), just the Creation of that quest edited the lore of RuneScape, so I see no issues of this being a bad idea. :)

Tbh even though I despise quests and don't care for lore, even I know it'd break so much lore in the game it's laughable. The community already loves to pounce on such things, they'd have a field day over this.

Whilst it might seem "cool", disregarding the lore aspect you're talking about a gigantic project that would require thousands of hours of development time for something that doesn't really add anything new at all.

Personally I'd rather see that time better spent on providing new content and fixing/balancing existing content than just changing my character model.

No support.
