Whilst not a fan of the Myreque series (had a lovely conversation with Rowl*y the other day addressing my dislikes of the series), I like the new information about it. It seems to hint as a sharp focus on Drakan and his backstory which is something I can get behind.

It has stiff competition as most of the quests this year have been good but looks like it will beat the other Myreque quests for me.


If I may ask, what are your problems with the series?

When it comes to quest series my preferred method of release is the way the Void series did it, in that each quest series is worked on and finished before moving onto the next one. These long gaps really do harm to interest, especially because we can't replay quests.

I can't be the only one who feels the Barrows Sister is like an OC in a bad fanfiction. Unless it turns out to be an existing character like Remola.


Could it be Jennica or someone related? I don't think we ever got an answer to why that Old man noticed the ring. I thought that story would go somewhere but its been years since Summers End...

so with children of mah and sliske,s end game that will be a total of 6quests this year with a bunch of mini-quests I thought jagex wanted to release like 12 full quests a year?


They did not, no. 12 Quests a year at this point would mean the only content we'd get each month is a quest. Which *I'm* fine with, but most are not.

6 a year, with Quests taking half the Large slots is fine in my book, with several more quests' worth through Tales is a great system in my eyes. Tales are replacing small scale quests anyway.


Eh, personally I would prefer more quests but I understand they are not the type of content that bring in the dollars for the vast majority of players- like I only log into this game for the quests in all honesty, but I understand that most players don't. While I would like more quests and I feel that RS quests are the best in the industry (better than WoW, The Witcher 3, Mass Effect etc.) it kind of sucks how most players don't feel the same way. Supply and demand and all that. I guess I should be grateful high quality quests are released at all with the new direction I have seen Jagex going in.

I'm fine with Grandmasters. Tiers are a mix of level requirements and lore content anyway, so since they're intending the Sliske's Endgame story to be the major end to a high impact series (that has a lot of quests in it), it makes since we're skewing Grandmaster. After that things will definitely be taking a downward turn with Evil Dave being a Novice, Bik and the Oceans being ~Experienced, with only our two Desert quests being around the Master/Grandmaster level.

I do think we need a tier above for 85-92 level requirements called "Paragon", but that's my own take on it.

As for dialogue? I've largely enjoyed it. We're currently 5 quests deep with the 6th and final quest coming in a few days, and with 2 highly related quests also existing. We're not early in the storyline anymore, reveals are coming hard and fast.

Hell, we have three slow-burn series going now. The Elder Gods are starting very low level and will slowly work it's way up, the Dragonkin seem to be skewing towards an Experienced "start" though One of a Kind makes that awkward, and the Sir Owen story has loads of potential for future expansion.


85-92? That would be devastating for a Runescape casual like myself xD Personally I already dislike that quests are locked behind what I perceive to be quite high skill requirements, these are easily some of the best questing mechanics in gaming and its s shame that we have to grind so hard just to access them, and that they are locked behind an arbitrary and artificial requirement. But I tolerate the 70-85 range that is common for the high-end quests, anything higher would drive me insane.

I want to point out that if they follow their mind set, we should have the Desert final with in 6 months to a year.

Lord of Vampyrium and River of Blood are about 7 months apart. Because they wanted to finish the questline while it was fresh on the mind. Plague's End and The Light Within were about a year apart as well. Again this was to set things up for the future.

If I had to guess, the last desert quest should be in November to January or they could surprise the hell out of us and release it at the end of this month or next month.


I also kinda think they will be setting it up similar to River of Blood so that we can have another questline in the desert. I can't remember what Akthanakos said he was going to do after the final ritual. But is could possibly be him, but so far, we haven't been enemies with the Zarosian Mahjarrat. But it could be centered around him and Enakhra. Especially since we have yet to get their bobbleheads.


Honestly I agree with the mindset of doing quests in a series in succession as the often years long waits between them does more harm than good. The model of the Sliske's quests, Void Knight and the lats two Vampyre quests should be the model going forward after they wrap up these classic lines like Desert and Pirates.

Certainly not looking good for us questers (though I suppose the real question is if it ever did post 2012...), I honestly would have to go back to 2007scape to get my dose of ol' Runescape charm at this point, but there's no way I'm creating a new account and retraining all of those skills.
