Please note:
This not a request to make content F2P. This is simply an overview of what could be F2P.

We've seen devs slowly make a few more quests and content F2P
Keep in mind, there is a limit to what can be done:
- Level limits - F2P is capped at Level 5 in several skills. While content can always be lowered in requirement, sometimes, it just isn't feasible in terms what fits with the quest (ie: you need to plant a Willow or Apple Tree)
- Location - there are still a lot of locations that are not F2P accessible for various reasons. Morytania, Kandarin, Entrana, Void Knight Island, etc. Biggest reason is that being able to go there is supposed to encourage you to get membership so you can do more and more content.
- Boss/PvM difficulty - not all quest combat is created equal. But F2P does have caps on what gear and food and prayers can be used. Some of which can be a nuisance for a high level player maybe only using T70+. this makes it more difficult for an F2P player whose best food only heals 1400 in 1 bite.
- Other pre-reqs - while the quest itself could be doable on F2P, it's the fact that other quests in P2P areas have to be done first

Taking those into consideration, here are some things that maybe kinda sorta could become F2P if DEVELOPERS decided to do it.

Frem Sagas
Thok it to 'em - F2P can access the floors required to get the "scribbled notes" and have the Strength Level to do it. The main hold back might be the XP reward (it is a fairly large chunk for F2P)


Miniquests
Currently, no miniquests can easily be made F2P


Tales
No "tales" are accessible in F2P areas

Quests
All Fired Up - with access to Priest in Peril and Silvarea, the remaining roadblocks to the quest were removed. F2P would not be able to access the Inferno Adze as 1-2 of the beacons require P2P areas. The first reward might be achievable, but the 2nd reward may be out of reach (and effectively need 92 FM for an F2P player to unlock) as some of the beacons do require P2P quests to access or to use the beacon keeper.

Buyers and Cellars - already in Lumbridge, but locked behind the access to the Thieves Guild Basement. Would require tech work to move Darren and Robin out if the basement to start the quest. All actions take place in Lumbridge area.

Impressing the Locals - most of the content takes place in Draynor Village and Port Sarim. Biggest issue is keeping F2P out of The Arc if they have the relevant 90 skills.

Rune Memories - Takes place at Wizard's Tower. Bigger issue is rewards (Rune Ess Chest, talking to demon for pray/magic XP reward).

What Lies Below - takes place mostly in Varrock area. No P2P special skill requirements. Biggest issue is lack of access to Chaos RC altar and Tunnel of Chaos (risk of F2P going to Chaos Tunnels)

Recruitment Drive - no special requirements to start. Issue is more quest xp rewards (2 1k XP lamps in agility and herblore F2P can't use, but not 1st time P2P XP lamps withheld from F2P) and the access to Initiate Armor

After that, the only remaining quests that could be "close" in terms of becoming F2P, but requiring the massive benevolence of developers to kinda sorta open up other areas ... other quests would be unlikely due to skill reqs over Level 5.

Dimension of Disaster: Coin of the Realm and Shield of Arrav - no real requirements to start these, but quest effectively gives access to majority of New Varrock. And F2P wouldn't be able to progress beyond the first 2 sections, thus leaving a permanently incomplete special quest until they became members.

Lost City - would require access to Entrana (which doesn't have a whole lot of content for F2P to do anyways). Quest in theory could end with the player entering the shack but not actually going to Zanaris.

Mogre Miniquest - would require Slayer requirement remove to talk to Skippy, Snape Grass somehow becoming accessible (or replaced with another item), and choclatey milk being made on F2P. (note: this doesn't give any rewards besides being able to Slay Mogres at 32 Slayer)

Abyssal Miniquest - biggest issues would require adding a 3rd NPC that counts as a teleport to Rune Ess mine and then keeping F2P locked out of P2P accessible RC altars.

Mage Battle Arena - fighting Kolodion could be easily done at 60 Magic (it's just a miniboss fight). Unlikely God Staffs and Divine Storm become F2P accessible.

If the Abyssal Miniquest just ended with you turning in the scrying orb, then it would make sense for it to be F2P.
Thing is that you have to go into the Abyss, get into the inner ring, then get back out. In a way, F2P would need "full access" to the Abyss in order to do the miniquest.

Hero's Quest isn't a good one to make F2P.
I was looking it over, and didn't see a massive amount to do
Lost City and Merlin's Crystal are on the current requirement list of quests. (Though yes, those can always be removed as they don't move the story forward)
The Lava Eel portion could just be done in the Wildy
Accessing Brimhaven (to some degree) and the Frost Queen section of White Wolf Mountain (a non-issue as it isn't wouldn't add anything OP)
The final issue would be the Herblore Level to start and the Herblore XP reward at the end of the quest. The quest gives a lot of XP ove ra lot of skills, but Herblore becomes one of those situations of F2P not being able to claim it. In addition, the Herb Lvl to start, like others on the list, would need to be reduced.
