What RS is missing is endgame contents for non combat skills.
Agreed with this. Also, can there be more creative ways of training construction and prayer? The most xp effective method of training is the same for a long time, and the converse to that would be having players unlocking 'better' and more interesting xp rate content as they gradually level up.

With construction, from levels 73 to 99, which is a huuuge range, your best xp rate is achieved by building/destroying flotsam prawnbrokers.

With prayer, starting from level 1 to 99, the best xp rates are from offering bones on gilded altars.

Cooking, divination, and firemaking are a little more interesting, in that the mechanism is the same for training, but you unlock higher tier content. With cooking, you can cook higher leveled fish or food for decent xp. With divination, you can capture and convert higher leveled energy, and with firemaking, you can burn higher leveled logs for better xp rates.

Two of the most immersive skilling skills in my opinion are crafting and hunter, since they require more 'skillsmanship.' The higher leveled content that you unlock requires different methods of procuring or making such higher leveled content. I'm glad the mining smithing rework is being more creative in this regard, what with higher leveled armor requiring more than just bars, but pre-existing armor pieces as well.

Similar to the mining/smithing rework, I hope that the other skills in the game can be made more enjoyable to train as well. I really like some of the diversions and distractions that grant skilling xp, such as Nemiforest, since they can be immersive and cohesive ways of using the skills we've trained, to accomplish things in our journey in Runescape. The Shrine of Guthix is one such example, and skill requirements for quests are another. That honestly really brings the game together and makes things feel more cohesive and 'worth it' :)

Also, will there be an easy teleport to Menaphos? I love Egyptian lore, but I'm barely in the current Menaphos and other desert cities due to the difficulty in accessing them. Prif has its own lodestone even though one for Tirannwn exists, so I'd like to see a lodestone for Menaphos despite the Bandits Camp one.
