While "Zeah in the 6th Age" was a possible idea in the interest survey a few months back, I believe that adding Zeah to RS3 would detract from both RS3's and OSRS's uniqueness.

Zeah was a place without the influence of gods, though, so with the 6th age, if it does get in it might be very different.

Totally think fossil island should come to RS3, as we've been waiting for years. Could even be tied to a new (elite) skill.

OSRS is getting priffdinas though, so anything is possible.

"Likewise, the Arc technically exists in OSRS, even if it cannot be accessed."


There you go. Likewise, Fossil Island technically exists in RS3, even if it cannot be accessed. But so what? Fossil Island can remain unaccessible forever as long as it remains useless in RS3.


Its only useless until it can be accessed. Why don't people get it: making something accessible is the first step to making something useful!


Here be Penguins is made accessible through the Fairy Ring, we should all know how "useful" it is. :D:D:D


I must report you to the analogy police. In all seriousness, your "Here be Penguins" may be given additional use sooner or later. Adding some use to an area is really not hard to do.

Second, "Here be Penguins" doesn't really need anything to be there to be useful. Finding hidden areas is nice for the vast majority of players, even if nothing is there.


Here Be Penguins was added more than 10 years ago and still have no practical usage. Don't know anything about "later" as nothing is being revealed by Jagex but obviously it wasn't given additional "use" sooner.

If finding "hidden areas" like Here be Penguins is so nice for the "vast majority of players", where did this "vast majority of players" talk about it in all these 10+ years? :D


The hilarious thing about your strawman "analogy" is that there used to be another useless island off the coast of morytania. That island is now a huge piece of content in the form of the Polypore dungeon and its related armor, weapons, spell, slayer creatures, etc. Even if your argument wasn't a strawman, it wouldn't hold up.

Zeah is unlikely and I'd be disappointed if Jagex just ported over OSRS content for it.

Zeah in the 6th age is an interesting concept and something Jagex mentioned in the survey. If the citizens of Zeah react strongly to the 6th age, then it'd be worth pursuing. Xeric would also be a considerable threat.

Fossil Island is a lot more needed. Jagex has spent time updating the models for the in-progress barge. That barge has been worked on for years, and deserves to set sail. Again, it shouldn't be a port of OSRS content. In particular Jagex could tie in the dragonkin lore of Fossil Island with the dragonkin lore of Ulthven Kreath, creating some captivating content.
