It's been a while since I did a quest right on launch day. I must say, I loved it. The quest isn't grand and amazing, but it is a good old-fashioned quest like we used to have.

Just a simple bit of running around, seeing the world outside my daily routine again, felt fresh and new. We need more content, even if it is simple and can't take up a lot of developer time. Just put something out weekly.

I wouldn't mind having a bottle quest every month. These little things make the world of Gielinor seem fuller and richer. Put half an OSRS-sized team on this and it can be done. I don't need rewards, I have everything I need, done most of what there is to do. I just want that bit of novelty every week, a little bit of simple fun to break the routine.

Just as long as it's still interesting & more meaningful quests were still made, otherwise it's a slippery slope to Jagex replacing the latter with bottle quests entirely. :P


Completely agree.

But I just looked it up and last year we had:
Pieces of Hate, A long master quest
You Are It, an intermediate novice bottle quest
The Needle Skips, a short novice bottle quest
Violet is Blue, a short novice f2p Xmas Event


Pieces of Hate was a great quest, but... one quest seems a small loss in comparison?

I feel like crying O_o

I was under the impression that The Needle Skips quest was the beginning of something far bigger in the future...?

even if it is, the format was truly awful

if this was jagex's secret weapon to top people space-barring through dialogue, it failed miserably

i personally guessed about 93% of the words just by typing in the more obvious words a murder quest on gelinor would involve

I generally like the idea of bottle quests, but they certainly shouldn't be the majority of quests released.

The Uri/Charos one was fairly interesting, needle as well - the one today was a nice funny quest, but didn't contributed anything relevant - neither in terms of game mechanic (the cheese cakes certainly have potential, maybe they'll make more out of them in future), nor story telling.
Improvements: Tooltip / (F2P) QoL v2
Quick Fixes: Invention

i personally think it was a massive missed chance

they could have made shark rocktail and sailfin cheesecake, removing the lp overboost effect and increasing the healing overall seeing as it has to be eaten in 3 bites

but instead they decided to introduce dead content? :S
