Though we'd then be left wondering why Seren's love aura didn't affect him. Or maybe it did, and that's the only reason he let the opportunity to attack her go despite how much he hates her.
what? where did you get 'zaros hates seren' from? he loves her more than anything in the universe and quite likely if he had to pick between her and becoming an elder god he'd choose her

and that's not the love aura or anything and it's not anything mah did, it's just that she's the only person in the universe who's anything like him


I believe Hguoh was referring to Zamorak and Seren.

Was talking about Zamorak hating Seren and her love aura’s effect (or seeming lack thereof) on him.

Only brought up Zaros since it is made perfectly clear that Zamorak is affected by Zaros’ loyalty aura (Seren and Zaros are on fairly close to equal footing in terms of power at the moment, so if Zaros’ aura was still in play so to should Seren’s).

The more interesting implication is why he didn't want Sliske to be aware of the aura.

Or maybe that's supposed to hint that Zaros wasn't ever affected by the 'de-god-ing' magic Sliske had in the maze. Such an immunity would explain why he and Seren (if he can do it, so can she) were able to remain in the maze when the other 'losers' were expelled.

It's because Sliske believes Zaros has been completely stripped of his divinity, when that is not actually the case.

Original message details are unavailable.
Sliske: Tell me, Zaros...how are you going to force everyone to your will without divine power?
Zaros: You underestimate me, Sliske.
Sliske: Oh I don't think so. Without your mother's power you are nothing but a pointless, saggy dishcloth. How different your life would have been without your quite unearned divine inheritance. Why, if only you had been created a little later, you would have been born a Mahmuspah. How about that? And what kind of Mahmuspah would you have been, Zaros? A very dreary one, I think. A boring, pointless, dreary thing devoted to nothing but planning and thinking and planning and PLANNING! And no one would listen to a word you said because no one would care, and you wouldn't have the power to FORCE THEM TO! Why, that sounds a lot like Wahisietel doesn't it?

Literally pointed that likelihood out in the post you quoted:

I know, just pointing out that it is shown that Sliske does believe Zaros no longer has his aura.

I absolutely adored this bit of dialogue! Was tempted to make a post about it myself, but instead I've ended up writing an essay about Zaros and Zamorak... whoops.

(Aforementioned essay or may not get finished/posted sometime soon. I have a habit of getting carried away with these things.)

For now, though, I can't help but wonder how much Zamorak meant his various reasons for not killing Zaros there and then. How much of this is Zamorak's own reasoning and how much is merely influence from the sedative effect of Zaros' aura? It's not something with a clear-cut answer, and it's all the more interesting for it.
