storyline, puzzles, storytelling: 8/10
recycling existing content/areas: 8/10 (too much)
feeling of cheap development: 8/10 (too much)
(using static concept art as conversation backdrops ewww)
rewards: 8/10 (nice for its lvls & difficulty)

Yeah, I would give it ~7.5/10. Hopefully it is the start of a grand storyline! (Though I dislike having a definitive villian; first Lucien, then Sliske, and now
Kerapac
, but I digress..)

I enjoyed it a lot. Very story heavy and puzzle heavy (what do you expect when one of the requirements is the Clue Scroll Quest). Also very lore heavy.

1) Sliske was in on killing Guthix from the get go, with Guthix himself being the one to organize it, in order to pass on his power to the Player.
2) Kerapac wanting to use the Needle to isolate the Elders, but in fact absorbed all of its power for his own agenda.
3) Armadyl had a fucking husband!!! OMG!


Anyways, I love the little jokes and reveals, and how blindingly obvious one of them was in hindsight. The combat is fairly tame, you may want to bring food, but otherwise, it is a great quest and well worth playing.

It's too late. You've awakened the gazebo.

1/10. We already did all this, and the title can best describe Jagex's current state of development.

The whole 2nd half of this quest they obviously gave up on even trying to make sense. The only positive thing was the voice acting, so it gets a 1 for that.

But it... makes sense.
The Dragonkin are freed from thousands and thousands of years of torment (remember, they originate from the previous Cycle) and are finally out from under the neigh inescapable binds that tie them to the Stone of Jas (which were only able to be broken by having the largest sources of anima in existence and a tool of creation at their disposal). Kerapac, after all this suffering, realizes that with his new freedom and resources he can end the Cycle and the fear and threat presented by the Elder Gods by one single sacrifice: one world for hundreds.

Remove the Anima around the eggs (the anima of Gielinor itself) and those eggs will never hatch, never live beyond something akin to Mah. The Cycle ends, the rest of existence continues. But Gielinor is no more.

EDIT: The Dragonkin have seen worlds, entire civilizations built, prosper, destroyed, and lost to the sands of time. To lose one world for the betterment of all is, to them, a small sacrifice.

... Next time on RuneScape: Endgame. :P

It was great, I'm happy to finally see a quest with decent puzzles and riddles and little to no emphasis on combat. The static artwork was nice, but I don't feel like it was necessary. Now that I think about it, cut-scenes in the past were much better even if the characters were just standing around blabbing through a chatbox.

When Kerapac became the villain I felt like it was a bit anti-climactic. It wasn't too surprising and the player couldn't even offer advice to stay away from Kerapac (like in the past sixth age quests).

Hi, I'm not much of a lore person, but I liked how the races, well their representatives, were all reunited at burthorpe.

I haven't done some of quests recommended for it, so for me lots of places were new.
Last time I heard about Seren, she was a crystal fragment!

I give it a 8/10 (Please change Seren's voice)

Some curious and funny things in the quest!
