Other series should have priority over Myreque****. last desert quest was Dec 2010, pirate and EW Mar 2011. Myreque Sep 2015. I don't follow the graphics argument, and the momentum thin


+1, but you forgot about the gnomes :(

Hence the (censored...) 'e.g.' I also left out druids, who have been waiting since 2004, monkeys, 2010, slugs (because we all agree SitW should be reworked if resources and manpower weren't restrictive factors), 2011 and penguins, 2012. Then there's Temple Knights, 2011/2013, aaand that's about it., since Drakkerkin were also 2015.


Druid's quest series has been over since TWW.

Monkeys are a mess.

Slugs needs a rework.

Penguins might be this year

Temple Knights are occasional stories.

Desert needs a quest, but could get one this year if Menaphos wins.

And either way, we've been complaining that old questlines need to be finished. They're finishing a questline here, and now a few of you are complaining. Doesn't that seem a bit wrong to you? The devs enjoyed working on the last quest and want to make the quest. The players enjoyed playing the last quest and many want the next quest. They have momentum from LoV to get the next one out. The graphics are up to date, and save budget by not needing to do any reworks.

There is no reason not to do the next Vampyre, and complaining about Jagex taking the time to do continuation quests of the same series does more harm than good.

I totally agree Amuscut, any 5th age quest being made is great. It's harmful to the story when there are long gaps between quests and i'm glad they are just finishing up the Myreque quests.
I'm an advocate for building up momentum in a quest series as well, the story is more fresh in the players mind and helps the story a lot.

I am very happy to hear about us getting to see and learn more about Nomad and it wouldn't hurt if it could involve hard and tricky combat content, because I have such fond memories of how Nomad's Requiem used to be the hardest of quests in terms of combat content but that was also very long time ago in the past.

It would make sense that the next time we face him to be strenghtening that spectrum, looking back at Nomad's Requiem now and you can just laugh your way home.

Or they could just keep it simple and follow the nerfed down state of mind of its predecessor.

Thoughts on this, what would you expect?

Just finished listening to the Quests Q&A stage! Additional things we've learned are:

- Ballad of the Barrows Brothers is an Experienced quest.

- Sliske's Endgame is confirmed Grandmaster and will require Fate of the Gods, The Light Within, and Hero's Welcome.

- Myreque finale is EITHER River of Blood or Rivers of Blood, though it's a working title.

- Will feel like some of the older Myreque quests, more sprawling.

- Likely more continuation quests than just Myreque

- Anniversary quest is Novice

- There's also another Master quest lined up. They're aiming for a nice spread of quest difficulties again.

@ Amascut

Didn't they also mention One of a kind being a requirement for Sliske's Endgame?

I also hope they make a new quest level difficulty for it, a sort of "Legendary" tier. By the sounds of it, it requires at least 6 Grandmaster quests to start and could have requirements as high as 85-90 in several skills.

EDIT: It is also the end of the Stone of Jas storyline which is a massive overarching storyline in Runescape, plus they are making it replayable with the Deleted Scenes feature and will perhaps be voice acted. It just seems far too important to be considered a regular Grandmaster quest.

Actually just added that right before I saw your post xD

And yeah, Endgame is going to be stupidly high level no matter what! It's going to be absolutely monumental.

I'm hoping that runecrafting will be more used in quests, currently the lowest quest req is rc, ib4 77 rc at river of blood? EXP is not important, it's important to have fun and play with your friends.:) -Lopendebank3

Beyond that, momentum is more important than you might think.


But should they be? Quests instalments will always be at least a few months away and with differing skill requirements, you can't always rely on players playing in close sequences. A good quest should fit the narrative of the series but also be able to stand on its own right.

Floor 61 will be a grandmaster too, so either way a GM heavy quest log is happening.


Gnomes wouldn't. Either way, Floor 61 would at least address one of my two complains wheras Myreque doesn't. I get your point that it wouldn't be a dramatic improvement but it would be an improvement.

Actually, I think its fantastic. We know pretty much the whole schedule and when it comes down to it, my biggest complain is they chose the wrong fifth age quest continuation. Thats a fantastic net result and a dramatic rise from previously. With a little luck, we make get close to perfect scheduling in the next couple of years.

Also I should point out I do agree with everyone's points about why it being made makes sense. I just don't value the positives as highly as others and value the cons far more which makes the decision in my eyes a definite mistake. I see why the choice was made, I see why people support the choice but ultimately I still see a mistake.

I'm not trying to persuade everyone only I'm correct. I just though it's important to highlight the negatives of the choice and express why some are discontent. Sadly it looks like its staying. Both Raven and Osbourne say they disagree with me but see where I'm coming from. That's all what I wanted.

Rewatched, yep Barrows will be experienced. Glad we are not going back to the recent anti mid level content dark ages.

Although I did hear the three quests they didn't discuss (Gower quest, Fate of the Gods 2 and Nomad's Elegy) would be a novice, master and grandmaster. You might want to double check before adding to the thread though. I'd assume its be Gower novice, Nomad master and Fate of the Gods 2 grandmaster although Raven said Nomad's Elegy would "probably?" require Nomad's Requirm so that seems odd.

I also wonder if who was speaking had anything to do with who develops the quests. That would leave Stu and Wilson without a quest with two big quest slots up for grabs - Nomad's Elegy and Fate of the Gods 2. I'm leaning to Stu doing Nomad's Elegy as my preference but both are strong developers so I'm sure they will work well whatever they are given.

Could hardly disagree more. By the way, monkeys aren't a mess (just heavily tied to gnomes and desert) and, while the druid series is a mess due to the Druidic Ritual rework, it's definitely not over. Varrock circle's still Zamorakian, and look at Sanfew's PQD.

Perhaps you're half right; perhaps we can't win. But we can fight.
