Did Glacors evolve from icefiends?

Recommended Posts

Wouldn't it be the other way around since glacors are ancient beings?


You make it sound like running through a few level 87 monsters is hard which it really shouldn't be at your level.

I like their sparkle effect, but find the overall graphical design of them rather crappy.


I'm like a hot mess, but without the alcohol.

They were spawned from the effect the stone of jas had on the ice in the cave. seeing as he didnt have the stone for all that long timeline wise, no, theyre not ancient.

I thought Glacors were one of Lucien's creations, which subsequently went out of control and got repeated over and over by the Stone of Jas. Them being modified icefiends seems likely. I'd say they were the exact opposite of ancient.

I just wanna say I hate glacors so much, wasted so much time getting 83 shards that getting the final 17 would result in me destroying something or verbally assaulting anyone near me.

Also I would pay a visit to runefest.

 

Good thing I got self knowledge and self control.

 

Ow and I don't know how they got there all of a sudden.... when I was there with stone of jas there was nothing, so maybe lucien kept them away from the stone but when he teleported there was no use to keeping glacors away from their ice cave???


Me and the wise old man go way back.... he was a foolish boy back then.

In the beginning, there was nothing

 

Then, there were glacors

Just because this amuses me so much, let's go learn something from the completely reliable and never wrong Knowledge base!

 

 

"The Baneore cave is where the Stone of Jas was housed until recently. The cave is the source of the only ore known to be harmful to dragonkin and due to the magical energies that the Stone of Jas emitted over CENTURIES within the cave, it is also home to glacors."

 

 

So, according to our everfaithful KB, the Stone has been here for a very long time; making the Glacors ancient creatures indeed!

:wall: #-o -.- :-| :???: :eek: :shock:

Nothing else can express how I feel after reading that. Sure, the KB can derp on stat values and game data, but this? Seriously?

So the stone of jas in WGS was a different one?

 

The stone of jas emitted power that somehow formed glacors (that magically were not there when the stone of jas was there) or the stone of jas atracted them?

It's pretty obvious that the guy who wrote that article hasn't been keeping track of the events of the quests. 'Laying there for centuries' sounds cool, but the fact is that the Stone was only there for storage for a relatively short time.

 

We know that Lucien either created or summoned a glacor during the battle. There weren't any glacors in the cave before the battle, and there were loads of them afterwards. The Glacors are also derived from the power of the Stone. You could then say that:

 

1. The Stone naturally warped the ice around it into monsters. Lucien was powerful enough to keep them away from the Stone and actually bring one up to the surface. However, you would expect a similar effect in the temple of Guthix, where the Stone was hidden for much longer, and the Balance Elemental isn't really the same thing. Which leads to my theory:

 

2. Lucien created the Glacor using the Stone during or shortly before the ritual. The Stone reacted by pumping out the same spell over and over again, or perhaps unintentionally imbued the surrounding area with the required magic to form Glacors. It's important to note that Lucien knew nothing about how the Stone works. I'm kinda surprised that he didn't go Melzar the Mad insane, to be honest.

I think glacors are a combination of the demon summoning powers of Lucien (it is unclear whether or not this is a trait of the Mahjarrat in general seeing as Bilrach also possessed this ability), the crazy ass powers of the stone which allow him to tear a large enough rift open to make it permanent while shaping the form of the beings to suit his needs, and the focus of the Staff of Armadyl, which gave them the ability to float and the trait of being nonaggressive, although the latter may be because they're not constantly on fire on the inside.

 

I theorize that the armadyl shards are fragments of the staff after the dragonkin shattered it over Lucien's really thick skull. The glacors being the closest attuned beings to the staff subsequently fused with the shards after they were scattered. Might explain why the arma battlestaff is pretty much identical in form to the original, except much smaller.

 

What can be observed, however, is the similarity between a glacor's physical traits, and those of a dragonkin.

If the power of the dragonkin and the stone are so linked together, then it's not that much farther of a leap to assume that the power would shape creatures similar to it.

Should be good right?

The only way glacors evolved from icefiends would be if Luciens's spellbook was On the Origin of Species.
