Does Sliske even realize that you've been working with Azzanadraa in order to restore Zaros to power? Why would he attack someone that's been helping to restore his god? :mellow:

Because mahjratt all have their own goals and rarely co-operate; besides Sliske obviously isn't too fussed if he was he would of done something by now. Afterall he's been free where as Azzandra was imprisoned until we recently freed him.
Sliske likes having his powerful toys, you as a great hero of the age are an obvious choice.

He was trying to turn you into a wight to make a pawn out of you. Weather you're working with Azzandra or his slave, it's all the same to him.

Although Sliske technically is allied with Zaros, he's pretty much a secretive jerk and nobody else really likes him. He's probably as self serving as Lucien, but he's not up front about it and waits for his opportunities rather than actively seeking them out, because he prefers to hide where it's safe.

And that's why Lucien is the shrimp on the barbie, and he's not.

side note: does that mean that if we get sliske to kill more people, we can has more barrow?

He did no actual combat himself; I watched pretty closely...

Got my final Mining and Agility level today and not long after finished the quest. Story line was amazing, dialog was awesome and the cut scene's, best cut scenes in the game so far?

As for the final fights, i took a full invent and PakYak full of rock tails, 5 super restores and 2 Sara brews, a Tele and a dds. I did all the fights with that. Not to mention it was my first attempt also :)

Zemouregal described him as one of the more powerful Mahjarrat, though he also says he's "a slippery fellow" so he may have not been at some former rituals which would have diminished his power. He summoned the brothers during the fights before the sacrifice so he wouldn't have had his power fully restored by then.

Well, when you think about it, the barrows brothers have their own power, even though it was cultivated and ultimately enslaved by Sliske. It's like a relay, where Sliske uses a small amount of power to control the much greater strength of the barrows brothers. At least that's what I think. I wouldn't want to fight Sliske head-on even without the brothers on his side.

I wouldn't want to fight Sliske head-on even without the brothers on his side.

As far as I remember, the Barrows brothers were powerful, but their abilities (otherwise "powers") were given to them by Sliske. I didn't see Akrisae do much during the fight / I don't remember how Akrisae fought before he was turned into another BB, but I wouldn't think his robes were Barrows "grade". Another question of mine is whether this is another detail of Sliske's transformation ability or a simple continuity gap... And of course how the abilities of the wight are chosen...
... And if we were wearing a Barrows set if we'd just have become another copy of that Barrows brother lol.

I actually like Sliske, altho he can be a real jerk but even if he tried to "enslave" us, I think it was made canon he can only do so with the weak-minded, and Akrisae wasn't exactly a tough head, maybe he was just trying to see if we could resist his attempt, afterall, all of the zarosian mahjarrats made us, in one way or another, prove our "loyalty": Azzanadra through the multiple tasks he gives us, Jhallan by helping him find a place to hide, Wahisietel by making us provide information about other mahjarrats and making us help Azzanadra and Arrav, even if we helped Hazeel in the past (which actually gives him reasons to suspect about us and hide his real identity) and of course, Akthanakos by making us help him scape his prison.

Also, anyone else noticed 2 mahjarrats missed the ritual?

At the end of the quest you pick a number between 1-5 to hide the Stone of Jas. Do you think this will be needed in future? Like for us to remember? He said it was to do with coordinates, do you think will can find it again without a new quest?

:blink:

Also, the question from the FAQ caught my interest:

“Why did you release bolts that are only useful on specific monsters, instead of bolts that are above rune for bossing and PvP?”

Paul: I think it provides more gameplay depth if different equipment is useful in different situations. Not every new weapon needs to be something that will send the previous best weapon obsolete and then become obsolete itself when the next new weapon comes out. Bolts that are strong against specific creatures also gives me the opportunity to provide storyline clues.

So, perhaps Wallasalkibane and Basiliskbane arrows/bolts aren't going to be that useless after all?

EDIT:

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

But how powerful would Bilrach have to have been when he died for his death to be felt so far away? Do any of the seers say anything about feeling the ritual like what they did about the opening of daemonheim?

And wasnt zaros's attempt to return to the world supposed to be kept quiet for now? So why did Azzandara start blasting away with god power and shouting zaros at the top of his lungs? Wouldn't that have tipped off the half dozen most powerful zammy followers and some of the stronger saradomin followers that something was up?
