I dont imagine anyone knows an exact age

in order of oldness it would probably be
Pretty much all of the Dragonkin
Zaros and Seren (both probably nearly as old as this cycle)
Ebeb (the guy's name apparently means ancient, so... yeah... old)
Skargaroth (he seems like he's been active for a while by the time of Guthix's memories)
Tuska (much the same as skargoroth)
Saradomin (obviously a very old dude, but still fairly young as a god at the time of Guthix's memory)
Jodaduwatsisface (like, get a real name already, I don't care if you're dead, just do it)
Guthix (might be older than Saradomin as a being, but definitely younger as a god)
Azzanadra (based on my possibly incorrect idea of him being one of the first Mahjarrat)
Bandos
Armadyl (he seems young as a god)
Sliske (I dont know where to put him but he's almost certainly older than Gielinor)
Death (as in Gielinor's Death, Harold, who would have become Death a few decades after Guthix brought humans to Gielinor)
Zamorak (to me, as a Mahjarrat, he seems one of the younger ones.. not of the current batch, but no-one seems to have cared what he thought when Icthlarin came to them for help so he was probably fairly young)
V (he's a fremmenik, how old can the idea of fremmeniks even be?)

V is pretty old though... I think he began his Godhood before Zamorak did. As he was around in the First or Second Age. So sometime in the First Age he began the first steps to godhood.
I guess you're right about that.. I dont know much about that whole thingThe One Sin said:
As far as I know of predicting where Jagex is going with this we'll learn about a few of the gods that hail from the Eastern Lands as Ebeb + Jodoku.
I didnt think any gods came from there... ebeb and ... Jed... were on Bandos's homeworld and it's unlikely they ever had anything to do with gielinorSepulchre said:
I feel like we've been over this before recently...
I don't remember that, sorry

I've beat this like a dead horse, but I really can't see Lucien as 7,500. That is INCREDIBLY young and just unrealistic...not to mention, I think the Dragonkin were at 18,000? There's no way of that can be canon.

And maybe this is just bias, but I have a difficult time seeing Moia as older than Khazard...and I could have sworn she said her mother was in the Fourth Age? But I could be wrong there.
I thought moia was only 500 years old... khazard's almost certainly older unless mahjarrat pregnancies last a few thousand years after the mother's death

the dragonkin are from before this world, so they could be pretty old

I dont think top trumps is very accurate though

Well she was just cited as being 5,800 years old and being born during the middle of the 3rd age...while Khazard was born at the end of it. ...That really sounds iffy, doesn't it?
very. I imagined khazard was born around the time when the second age became the third age

moia found daemonheim in 168 of the fifth age, by which time she'd be ('m guessing 500ish).
she was around during (just after) the 17th ritual which is 500 years before the 18th which is around the time she found daemonheim, and she can't have been very old around the time of the 17th because of how young she was then (before she met the portals, her age was very visible 500 years later)

so somewhere between 500 and 600, I'd guessHazeel said:
Accurate or inaccurate, Lucien's age can't be an indication of the other Mahjarrat, because it's so varied. If we were talking about mortal beings like Aviansie, then that would make sense, but Mahjarrat are immortal and keep reseting their "age". I'm sure there are some Mahjarrat that are around 7,500, but that's the absolute youngest I could imagine aside from Khazard and it would just be downright odd if they were all around that age. I imagine some of the younger ones are 7,500-8,500 while some middle age Mahjarrat are 20,000-30,000, and some of the older ones could ranged between 100,000-300,000. And the oldest of them could only a couple decades younger than Zaros and Seren depending on the timeline
As much as I wouldnt mind azzy being one of the first, I'd actually just feel sorry for him if he was a hundred thousand years old :P (I just see that number... and I just want to lay down and die, y'know, like I'm bored of life, just let me sleep)

I keep forgetting that the start of Gielinor isnt the start of this cycle, so yeah, the dragonkin would have to be far older than their top trumps thing

The creatures of runescape have the benefit of occasionally falling into a random puddle of magic

That makes me think of Armadyl's god book where he wants to zap some crab things with his staff to make them... sentient or whatever, but he left it at home with some people who totally couldnt be trusted with it

edit (but not an actual edit): they were beetles, not crabs and that wasnt even the staff moment... that was a few planets ago where he apparently sees 'the seeds of life, but not life itself. I feel myself reaching for my staff, to give those seeds a spark of energy, a push to catalyse their efforts... But it is gone.' And by gone, he means he gave it to the Guardians of Armadyl which means that by now they've already lost it to yet another powerhungry mahjarrat

I thought the lore stated that Khazard was born towards the end of the God Wars? So he'd be like 3,000...
He sure doesn't act like it :P
personality-wise I'd put him at 12, maybe 13

that is what the rs wiki says, yes...before I read this, I just had in my mind a reality where palkeera became pregnant during the end of zaros' reign and into zamorak starting the god wars (which would actually mean her pregnancy lasted the entire time zamorak was murdering the demonworld which seems weird, but... maybe isnt that weird, considering...)

I reread her diary (everyone has to write a diary before dying, that's why they call them die-aries) and it doesnt imply anything of the sort... and they've also removed the mention of Azzanadra beating up a recently pregnant girl

edit: the only thing that does imply my reality is the 'za-' in 'He did it. Created life... Za-'. If the dad was zamorak, it wouldnt really be that amazing, girls get impregnated all the time, which implies that it was Za-ros who 'did it, created life' which would imply she'd have to have had the kid when Zaros was recently around, which would imply shortly after the second age

edit 2: change hilarious joke in third paragraph from 'that's why they call them die-aries' to 'how else would passing adventurers know how they died?'

That reminds me, how old is Armadyl and when did Saradomin meet him? He stated in MPD that he saw Kethsi get destroyed, and he seems to know a decent bit about the Stone. Did he use it?
He seems to hate the idea of using the stone more than the dragonkin do, so I'm going to guess no

If I recall, he stated that he knew of the events that took place on Kethsi, not that he saw them take place. Saradomin and Armadyl probably met on Gielinor, as it seems unlikely Saradomin would go to Abbinah, encounter the Aviansie, and NOT try to force them into his regime.
WINGS! WINGS EVERYWHERE! *greelfully rips a young aviansie to shreds*

Made this for Saradomin guide.

Zamorak also definetely wasn't born on gielinor. It would have been mentioned.
a lot of things aren't mentioned. I don't think he was born on gielinor but I also don't think he was much of a force in the mahjarrat world before coming to gielinor,kl.

How can Zarador live that long? He lived for 2000 years or so? It said that after the God war ended and the gods were deported by Guthix. Zarador went into hiding and waited for Bandos to return. I understand why General G lived for a long time because they got frozen by a unknown spell fpr 2000 years. Zarador did said he master the art of shaman and magic...maybe he cast a spell himself so he can't died of old age? Lol


The short answer is that he's not that old. Not even close.

Ask Zarador about ourgs, and you'll get the long answer.
"The ourgs were not wiped out in the God Wars as many believe, but only a handful of our shamans survived. The last of them retreated to a hidden vale, believing it was more important to preserve the lores of their god than to die in battle as so many others had done. There they lived down through the centuries in seclusion, but they were broken and dispirited and their numbers dwindled until in the final generation only one was born. Me. The elders passed on their knowledge of Bandos and his ways, and when the last of them died I left the vale and lived amongst each of the other peoples of Yu'biusk. It was from them that I learned to be a warrior and then an engineer. It was amongst them that I first felt the eye of Bandos on me and drew his attention with the clever use of cannon. I realised that my ancestors had been wrong to hide, but that without their error I would not exist and I would not be there at my god's side on his final battlefield."
