So i'm by the door, first of all you see the shaking and such, then you try open the door. My message was "The door doesn't seem to budge". I have all god items to prevent people attacking me but it looks like only Armadyl & Saradomin are lit up, don't know why...very strange :P

Actually, they aren't actually lit. It's just that Saradomin and Armadyl's icon has a bright color compared to Bandos and Zamorak which is black.

And when standing next to the door, no monster attacks you unless you're already under attack by them. (If I remember right)
Also, before this update, when you stood next to the door, the killcount counter would disappear. With this update, it's still there. (Might have been a bug before that is now fixed)

I drift in and out, trying some update that interests me.

I was wondering wether they were just dark :P Didn't know about the monster thing, but my kill counter has been appearing when i'm near the door. :o

IDK why you guys are still trying to open it. It's obvious this is just a teaser for something big in early 2011.

However, unless the new boss behind the door is Corp Beast caliber, I think it'll be disappointing. Thanks to Jamflax's two exp weekends, the average player's abilities are much higher than ever before and therefore any new boss they release will instantly be SWAMPED with lots of people who have Yaks/Titians/OVL/Turm. Unless the boss is as powerful as the CB, it will be easily overwhelmed by the overpowered combo of OVL + Turm + Chaotics/Claws.


Unless it requires an exceptional amount of skill and/or requirements, like those found in WGS, which unlocked Tormented Demons. Their value is still preserved and its shockingly empty considering its low cost/profitability.

Yep, that quest point requirement is a big deterrent. Many people (including me, even though I have a Quest Cape) hate questing. Granted, (with the exception of Do No Evil) questing is much less of a chore recently than it was a year or two ago, since Jagex has started localizing quests so that you don't have to run from one end of the map to the other retrieving obscure items. Another deterrent for people is that TDs are one of the very few monsters in the game that actually require a little real life skill to solo them. The Corp Beast and Jad are the others that come to mind. Given the average maturity and intelligence level of most Scapers, TDs seem like too much work. It's much easier to fight a boss like Bandos or Sara where you can just pray, spec, and eat when necessary and it dies.

The saradomin and armadyl icons look lit...because the bandos and zamorak icons are naturally gray....where as the arma and sara icons are bright blue and yellow respectively.

By the looks of it, with words like shadow and revenge, it does point towards Zaros.


...how? Zaros is trapped in another plane of existence entirely and wasn't around for the God Wars, I thought?



That I didn't know. Who else is affiliated with the power of shadows and getting revenge?


Sliske and General Khazard come to mind...

Maybe we're going to see a GWD related quest where we have to open the door for someone? As for who or what is behind it, it would be a surprise if it was anything to do with Zaros given that he had nothing to do with the God Wars. Perhaps it will be a new Dungeoneering dungeon?

You guys shouldn't rule out Zaros...because it really wouldn't be hard for jagex to just implement some random character finding out an unknown "secret" about the GWD no one found before.
It would take little effort to just mash zaros in there. And just because Zaros himself wasn't there, doesn't mean his followers couldn't be.

No. By the time of the battle for the Godsword (which was LATE in the god wars), Zaros had been gone for centuries. We're talking a loong time after Azzandra had been imprisoned. His remaining followers were in hiding, and there was no WAY they were powerful enough to take on the armies of four major Gods in a battle like that.

We're not talking about some plot twist here, we're talking about revising established history to put Zarosian influence multiple centuries later than it should be.

Consider the fact that the door has been there since the release of godwars. Why is there a door with the symbols of all four gods on it? Where did the Godsword come from, anyway? Without speculating further, those two unanswered questions alone open up the possibility that zaros was beginning to re-emerge near the end of the god wars, and was sealed away.

You should know by now they can just as easily make this a weird out of place plot twist.

It also doesn't need to have relation to the past events of the GWD, maybe Zaros will just decide to join now, now that the dungeon is thawing out, and the war is still going. It's not completely out of line for him to join now to get his revenge, especially after our characters have been helping him get free this whole time.

They might be a company that alienate their customers from time to time but their lore has always been detailed and well fleshed out, improving in quality over time. To make such a 'twist' as you're calling it seems completely against what they've already established in quests and lore alike. There isn't even a connection between Zaros and GWD save that Zamorak, who defeated Zaros, incited the war. That's it. There is literally no other connection.

Could it happen? Yes, there's a chance for everything in the realm of speculation. Is it feasible? Not really, if their lore writers and content developers maintain the quality of storytelling that they have up until this point.

Unless of course George Lucas recently took up residency at Jagex HQ...

Obviously you're all wrong and it will just be a new boss altogether. I'm willing to bet on it.

I'm not aware of anyone saying there wouldn't be a boss back there. In fact, considering the confirmed dialog coming from there, I'd be extremely shocked if it was anything BUT a boss. The biggest bone to be picked is who the hell is saying that.

If Zaros is back there, it will be the first major plot failure in Runescape lore.

I'm not going to bother pointing out all the holes in your wild speculation.
