Is 'You Are It' the same quest as Needle Skips? They both have similar concepts, but You Are It didn't have the needle in it.

And also, it hasn't come out yet.... if I am not mistaken, it was supposed to have come out in the first part of the year.

I am also getting disappointing with lack of quests again. I think we have had 2, but we know there probably won't be one the month Farming update for animals comes out. There probably won't be one for the month Smithing/Mining comes out. It is unlikely that December will have one as it normally doesn't, but sometimes it does. There isn't one for July.

So that only opens 2 months up for quests. Farming update might have a quest that we have to do before we start farming animals.

Needle Skips and You Are It are not the same quest, as confirmed by Mod Osborne via twitter. I kinda figured they weren't, but to me there were similarities and it got me worried about Needle Skips being changed.

Needle Skips is the only quest that we are supposed to get this year that we know of. However it was a TAPP Project, which I think all have been put on hold, and Mod Krista was working on it, however, she has left Jagex.

We don't know if it will even be coming out now. But from that known, it is unlikely we will get it this year. That being said, I think it is very unlikely that we will be getting a single quest for the rest of the year. Unless there is one with the POF or there is one that has yet to be mentioned.

They have released 2 "elite dungeons" with their own wealth of lore, and a 3rd on the way towards the end of the year.

But development is the core issue:
1 development team has been focused on the mining/smithing rework since last year. we still don't have a definite release date for it
A number of developers have been neck deep in trying to get RS and OSRS mobile out. this was something that was hoped to have been in release months ago. clearly Jagex underestimated what it would take to get it done.
These 2 updates are what are gobbling up quite a bit of development resources.

Mod Orion's dev team was involved in ED1 and 2, they are working on something else, and will eventually do ED3.
Mod Raven's team is the one that did the Pirate finale. They switched gears back in April to work on a skilling update: Player Owned Farms. That is getting released after BXP Weekend. They have likely started dev on something else, but have not mentioned what it is.

company running for 17+ years can only dish 2 quests out? come on

the 2nd quest this year was hardly a quest at all too, more like a miniquest with minimal new content. "bottle quest" they called it or whatever, felt like it was lackluster

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.

so at least we're finally getting a quest this month?

As far as I know, there isn't a quest this month. Only Quest Point shop.

what the hey is going on here only 2 quests this entire year so far? man what is this game these days just some promo micro transaction gambling thing?

Quest content has been overall pretty bad since Sliske's Endgame. Back to the Freezer was a fun side adventure though. Menaphos quests were pretty boring. Pieces of Hate was decent. Evil Daves Big Day Out was disappointing as it could have just been a better quest if it focused on Saradomin and Zamorak.
