Somethings been bothering me and it has everything to do with our status as world guardian. Twice now we have seen Guthixs enchantment upon us fail. First in death of chilvary where Saradomin ripped the elder wand from our grasp with divine energy stating "There are other ways around your protection" and again when Seren saved us from a lava bath. She states due to the enchantment, it was difficult. At first I assumed Saradomin did this by using his power on the wand and not us but seren seems to catch you in mid air. Then i thought saradomin used the power of his elder artifact to do so since weve seen powers greater than Guthix arent bound to the same restrictions. The staff and the stone have both pushed right past our protections before. But Seren doesnt appear to own an elder artifact. So to the point, is there a weak spot in our world guardian aura? Or does Seren have more power than guthix by an unseen elder artifact or by birth? After all she is one of the few gods who didnt leave the world when Big G set up the edicts, hell he even had to ask her to leave and she only shattered herself because she knew it was the right thing to do.

I dont know its either going to be a retcon or a vast oversight. The crown sara wears is a elder artifavt. Chanelling its power may have made us susceptible to him but i cant figure out how Seren did it unless shes stronger than she lets off. She did kill an elder afterall. Floating a stone beneath us as an explanation is boring. I have seen the dark universe yawning, where the black planets roll without aim;

While our World Guardian powers negate the effects of godly magic that blast is still going to have some sort of physical force behind it. It knocked us over, but it didn't affect us in any other way.

As for Seren she was supposed to save us by floating a rock under us, but the quest ran out of graphical budget or something. Of course since that's not in-game you could probably just use whatever headcanon you want. There's doesn't seem to be anything stopping the gods from phyiscally touching us for instance, so she could have just swooped in Superman style.

New headcanon. Seren removes face veil and wears red and blue spandex flying around saving wayward adventures and no one recognizes its her but shes always around when something like that happens and is the only person who is shaped like that.

At least my assumption headcanon-wise is that we're not immune to the gods, we just nullify god magic. Think of it in D&D terms that we've stripped them of their ability to use their epic level spell slots against us and they can only use low level ones, essentially putting them on the threat level of a mortal spellcaster.


This. In Fate of the Gods, Mah's screams still hurt us despite our World Guardian status...only to later be told that if anyone else tried what we did, there was a good chance they would've been disintegrated on the spot and have their ashes scattered to the winds.

Saradomin's blast could go either way. It could've knocked us back without hurting us, we could've just dodged it, but either way we weren't holding the wand when he grabbed it with his magic. World Guardian status probably kept us alive, but it's kinda hard to tell since we're missing some context on just how strong that blast was to begin with.

Seren could've simply just flew up and grabbed us for all we know. Or used a rock to catch us in midair. Or did some weird magic stuff to make a crystal slip & slide offscreen that we landed on and went down. Or any number of things. You don't need to directly affect something with magic to save it with magic involved.

Long story short: Anyone who wants to put the effort into finding a way to hurt or help us despite the World Guardian powers we have can easily figure out ways around it. After all, getting punched in the face or stabbed or just picked up and thrown across the continent isn't exactly powered by magic.


Mah being an elder god makes sense. Her power exceeds Guthix. Now, i will need to rewatch the cutscene but for some reason i recall our character holding the wand and saradomin demanding it then you have a choice to give or keep and if you keep he forcefully removes it.
