The dual wield magic basic is very good.

The event also offers quite a nice bit of xp, and I got dungeoneering xp (not my lowest stat). Do Tears work like that as well now :o?

Got the same memories as Bruno, in the same order, so it'd be the same for everyone I think?

@Chenw: Dragon breath should not have an accuracy penalty afaik, if you are missing a lot on dummies or something maybe you should submit a bug report.

Concentrated Blast is pretty overpowered for a basic ability. 315% spell damage, over three seconds.

It's great to get some more insight into RS lore. The new abilities seems good and useful as well ^^

Yeah tears got fixed when they updated them if all 25 skills = 99+ but dg is <120 it gives xp to dg. Once dg = 120 it goes back to purely xp based for lowest.

I haven't done the event yet, but it sounds neat. Though, it's a shame that the Guthixian sword override only works on 2h Swords and not mauls too (not that doing so would much sense) because I would have liked to use one over my Chaotic Maul. There just aren't very many 2h sword options for high levels aside from Godswords (which are inferior to Mauls).

Do we really have to use hide tags still? Anyway, couldn't it be Skargaroth?

I wasn't sure so figured just in case. Could be Skargaroth I suppose since we don't know his original coloring. I just thought it interesting that it mentioned a blue man which is sara's current portrayal.

Maybe. But Guthix said it was a blue giant, and Saradomin is only a bit taller than the average human.

Gods can change how they look case and point - Guthix is a tiny human sized thing vs a GIANT cave filling monster. Not to mention he's been a butterfly and seen at humanoid size bringing people through portal in Meeting History.

I'd be inclined to say the blue giant is meant to be sara - the whole razed the city because they angered him seems fitting of what we know of him thus far.
Plus the 'great tusked beast' that he fights with sounds like Skargoth and/or maybe Bandos.

Does this take place before he ascended?

It seems like we really want Saradomin to be the bad guy here :razz:

He was a god when he found Gielinor so the humanoid in meeting history, butterfly, floating skull and giant form are all post-godhood

Just being picky here, but at least under god letters lore, only Guthix is/was a shape shifter. That said, they've made changes, such as giving Guthix a gender and a mortal origin story, so I suppose there is no reasonable expectation that the god letters are still considered cannon.

The update looks nice, though I would have actually liked to see them make a new generation of quests that are post world wakes, that can't be completed until that quest is done. Kind of makes your charecter a time traveler otherwise but whatever. I'll be trying this out later, and I already did the quest so no time travelling for me (until I go back and finish the quests I've not yet done).

Well yeah the flashbacks are before Guthix was a god.
I don't see how that is relevant though?

The matter of debate was whether Saradomin could be the 'blue giant' considering when we've seen him he's not particularly giant.

Finally, Memstix and Runestax are building a tribute stone for Guthix just north of Falador. To pay your own tribute to Guthix, contribute a piece of rune essence to the stone. When you do so, you'll find out how many players have done the same thing. The stone will persist even when the event is over and - if at least 250,000 rune essence is added across the game worlds - the stone will act as a permanent prayer altar and small obelisk.


I would have zero use for something like this, but I find it really cool that player participation would "make" such a thing.

Have fun living in the past with No updates

Q: Dragon Breath just simply have a low chance to hit compared to every other ability. I have yet to miss a wrack on Barrow brothers since the last update, but my dragon breath only hits half the time. Having the Sonic blast cast before that doesn't improve its accuracy a great deal either. it seems there is an inherent inaccuracy with Dragon Breath.

It's been like that since EoC was released, I am surprised its still like that
