Someone on reddit found all the pieces :( The mystery quests where The Mighty Fall and Throne of Miscellania with WGS and Blood Runs Deep recommended. Also you need level 75 in woodcutting, mining, and construction.

……………And now I feel like an idiot, though those requirements all sound great. I'm looking forward to that.

I can't begin to describe how disappointed I am that The Mighty Fall is a requirement. The Mighty Fall was a terrible quest full of bad writing and I honestly consider it one of the worst releases the game ever had. I was hoping it would be left alone and we could ignore it as bad head cannon by the developers (who I wouldn't let near quests again).

Honestly this announcement has really tainted the hype I had towards this quest. Its pushed it down so much. Using poor foundations to build this story gives me little confidence it will be any good.

It was always going to have difficulties - peoples weird expectations of Nomad, the debate over requirements - but this has really done a number on how I feel about this quest.

Originally I disliked it as it was purely "give Nomad a quest because Nomad creates hype" and disliked the wasting of the slot. However there were enough good ideas in the pitch to produce a good quest and putting the Dukes (developers of some of the strongest quests last year) on it helped. But this news has really shook my confidence. Why dredge up an awful story for what will probably be a cheap cameo? It feels weak and cheap; lazy writing trying to cash in on others work whilst not earning it.

Honestly building a story on such poor foundations and just the approach they seem to be taking with it gives me little hope. Its coming off less as a plotted story and more a thrown together bag of stuff hoping to please people on cheapness. This news has probably dropped Nomads Elegy from my most anticipated quest of 2016 to one of the least, if not the least.

I liked the Mighty Fall, although I wish they left Zanik alone, her story line needed no more meddling.

But I think that the Mighty Fall requirement is there for a reason, one that we won't know until after release.

Also I am very glad they made both Requiem and DaT requirements.

Also I would have to believe that the release date for Nomad's Elegy is Monday the 11th. This is because that date is the exact date Nomad's Requiem was released 6 years ago. Also the puzzle pieces were released today (reminiscent of the old twitter hints) and there doesn't seem to be an update in the BTS for next week (Hati, Skoll, and Fenrir update is told to be in next week's bts).

I fully agree. I thought TMF was overall a very solid quest, and it makes sense to me to include it. I'm just so hyped Requiem is really a requirement!

I agree, I would have been heavily disappointed if Nomad's Requiem was not a requirement. You should also update the information on Nomad's Elegy with the new puzzle piece requirement information we were given today. I'm getting more and more excited for this quest now, I can't wait to battle Nomad once again!
