I'm really hype for Nomad's Elegy, I'm ready to kick nomad's rear end yet again, this time for good!


I'll be glad once Nomad is dealt with once and for all. I just find the development process has been less organic and more artificial in throwing together hype generating factors to make it look good rather than be an actual high quality update. Hoping release will change my mind but as of now, not impressed.

Almost absolutely. It requires two Grandmasters and some high level Masters.


Shame. I remember Raven saying it would be master but that was before Nomads Requiem and The Void Stares Back were announced as requirements. Was hoping for less grandmasters this year to counter the saturation we have, not more.

They said this back when the gnome quest, dwarf quest, and pirate quest were going head to head. There has also been a few Q&A's through out the last few years that have mentioned it. In all honesty, it would be near impossible to find those Q&As now. The last quest was a master and the skills were pretty high already.


Shame. I have gotten tired of the generic grandmaster finales they have added to every series lately and was hoping the gnome series would remain unique. The best finale they have even done wasn't grandmaster, hope one day they remember that.

No, no, no. Nomad is an anti-hero, i.e. both antagonist and protagonist of his arc.


Just to fully resolve this conversation, today's stream saw this fully resolved by the mods Nomad is definitely a villain

Also master rank, hurray.

I just wish Nomad's return in DAT hadn't been spoiled before the quest was out, OR he hadn't been involved at all, as I feel our character wasn't given enough time to react to him being dead. Hopefully this quest shows him off well. I'm just a man; I'm not a hero.

And a short story is going to be released to talk about his master - though not until after the quest is released - so hopefully we're not going to waste time in this quest having to talk about him. Here's hoping the priority can just be that we bring down Nomad. The antagonist aspect is the focus of the quest. Any chance of Nomad being an antihero protagonist can be saved for the short story.

Well more chance for critique/changes by the playerbase before quest release?

Wish this quest is going to be a blast. As I usually try to do harder quests on release, this time I think I am going to wait for weekend and complete it on NXT to see the whole glory. Vintage of 2001, proud owner of Classic Cape.

With my experience with BETAs, I wouldn't do that. You would probably end up missing a lot compared to doing it in the live game without NXT.

There is going to be lag, it isn't optimized. And there will no doubt be a TON of bugs. You would probably miss half the quest if even playable.
Come the Sixth-Age, the world will need the World Guardian.

Jagex put up a Nomad's Elegy medley on the runescapesoundtrack soundcloud, if anyone's interested. "I am not a good man! I'm not a bad man. I'm not a hero. I'm definitely not a president, and no, I'm not an officer. You know who I am? I... am... an idiot! With a box and a screwdriver." ~ The Doctor

Elegy has been removed from the upcoming now that it's out! Really great quest, and I plan to get a full review written soon!

Now we look forward to Gower Rangers and Ballad!
