Alright here's what I propose. After doing the quest, Armadyl and Bandos followers (including non-gwd monster such as Warbands and regular Goblins) start dropping the metal bits from WE2. These can be taken to Armadyl's tower, to the anvil, and turned into the WE2 cosmetic weapons. Alternately, they can be given to Gee'ka (who will be re-added) in exchange for smithing bonus EXP (nothing crazy, but scales with level and makes GWD tasks a little more worthwhile). After a certain amount, you unlock a title. Also, Warpriest drops for Armadyl and Bandos in GWD are raised to the level participants in the event get, which is great for Invention.


This would be nice, I'd love to see the return of Gee'ka, she was so cute!

Looks like the next year is going to be about Elder Gods and Dragonkin, following up on Endgame. Armadyl did play a bigger role in the Endgame (depending on some choices) but I don't think he or the Aviansie will have a big impact in the foreseeable future based on that. Rite of Passage

So, it's been confirmed that the new Elder god and Dragonkin quests won't require Endgame, a la TWW. I'd think that when/if RoP is made it will follow the same structure, so that should settle this debate...

They didn't really say next year. Just said the next big story line was going to them. But I think it is a great idea to lower requirements again. Hopefully if it is next year, they will make for 5th age even though it is low.

If it had continued, we would have been at 15 Grandmasters required for a single Grandmaster.
Come the Sixth-Age, the world will need the World Guardian.

The reset is cool to me, given that it follows on from the story which is what mostly matters.

I figure the Elder Gods and Dragonkin stuff will last longer than a year, but they will probably take up the bigger quest slots next year.

Never know though. The best chance ROP has in regards to Elder Gods is that it includes an Elder Artefact, so depending on how important that will be there may be a chance there.

The Armadyl and Seren thread from Endgame could also tie into ROP; and that could for example lead to them being allies in our fight to stop Jas or something similar. Who knows :) Aralim could also be an ally. We don't really know how the story would go but that's an angle I could see.

In the update coming on Monday ('til Death Do us Part) they are adding a new Aviansie character called Famine! Even though this is mostly for the halloween event it does seem to be proper lore-characters. I'll just paste the description:

Finally we can see Famine at the back – believe it or not that’s an aviansie. Thrown out to die by her peers, she exacted her revenge by poisoning the food stores of her home village, killing everyone who knew her, and barely batting an eyelid about it.

Here's a screenshot:


This is the first proper non-Armadylean Aviansie in the game, which is very cool to see! Maybe we'll find out some more on Monday via dialogue.

Looks like I got beaten to the punch here.

Don’t think anyone was expecting “RoP confirmed” to happen (and even if it had been said there, I would not believe it until I logged on at the day of launch to see it) which is why nobody seems too disappointed. The comment that “we’ve had enough of the gods for now” (paraphrased) was slightly irksome to me—only certain gods got basically most of the attention the past three years. I speculate the reason why “the gods” scored so highly is because some gods were given very little attention since the start of the Sixth Age, and that’s what the people want to see more of. Though nothing about those results rule out getting content in those areas. (Wish to hell I had gotten my say in those polls, though, but it never got emailed to me :( )

It does also look like Jagex is going with the “Seasons” idea, which does have implications for this quest. That’s only a good thing for this quest in terms of getting people to play it.

Let’s also hope we get more quests overall going forward because at this rate we’ll still be dealing with Elder Gods and Dragonkin three years from now....

For whoever hasn't seen it, Mod Osborne and Shauny are working on a quest about Armadyl this Gamesjam, with some lore help from Raven as I understood it.

This isn't ROP, but since it is a similar theme I figured I'd make a post. Shauny posted a few times about it on the RS discord so it's a good place to see what's up:



A picture he posted of some dialogue choices:

This is exciting news!!! Hopefully we get some relevant new lore about Armadyl with this project :)
