But Armadyl forces wanted to kill Guthix too, so Zaros or Guthix is obviously the better choice.

Zarosian forces wanted to bargain with Guthix. Then Sliske went "[bleep] this, [bleep] Zaros, lets become a god of my own", as far as I remember from TWW.

Yeah but Sliske is out for himself :P Pretty sure Drazzandra (yes intentional), and the other Zarosian's didn't really want Guthix to pop his cloggs. Him snuffing it without them being able to talk to him was quite possibly a regret they'll have now.

Reacting impulsively and saying what's on your mind feels oh so good.. for a little, until you realize you just started WWIII.

The Zarosians didn't know that they wanted Guthix to die. After his death they recognize that he probably should have, and that Sliske had the most foresight and was the best mahjarrat.

Armadyl > Saradomin, no doubt. But Armadyl forces wanted to kill Guthix too, so Zaros or Guthix is obviously the better choice.

TWW changed too many things. I was all for balance and protecting Guthix then, but now that the gods are coming back, might as well side with one that seems to be the only "good" one.

 

Put simply, I don't trust Zaros and Guthix's 'no gods' stance, while well-intentioned, made things worse.

There's no trusting any of the gods right now, but Zaros has awesomesauce goodies :D. Zaros realizes that it takes more than a few cosmetic white armour pieces to buy adventurers such as ourselves, so we get curses and barrage. That, I call a reasonable price.

The bit I found intriguing is that Osbourne said spellbooks/prayers for other gods are entirely viable and that normal mage and prayers are supposed to be Saradomin books since he is like the default faith of current times.

 

I'd quite like to have a spell and prayer book for each god even if the content was predominantly the same with only a few tweaks in like the non-main stuff and cosmetics. Could even play with elemental affinities. Eg in Bandosian we've seen some geomancers so have an earth-only spell book that could be balanced with a Zamorakian fire book, Armadyl 'storm' book (aka air and water)

So why is it wrong to kill Guthix? Balance and fairness and bla bla bla. "Oh, look, that guy just killed that guy, so let's introduce a third guy who can kill the first guy. BALANCE IS RESTORED @@@!".

And as mentioned in a previous post; Saradomin > Armadyl (And everyone else). Even though Armadyl actually isn't that bad after all. He's probably the best choice of the bad ones. Why? He loves order too.

Sliske teleports and prayers would be awesome. And I'm siding with Zaros, he is the reason I enjoy Runescape currently. :lol:

I do not like the idea of replacing non-combat spells along with combat spells. Switching ammo is fine, but don't ruin skilling/travelling with it. If more spellbooks get released, they'd better fix the whole farming vs. superheating vs. barraging issue.

Kinda surprised they never bothered to rework lunars w/ EOC. Could've really made combat less mundane by making harder bosses which require someone to be a healer

I still don't think healers really have a place in runescape, but support magic would actually be neat to see as a viable role in group combat...

I think we really need some beefier bosses before we can get proper support mages going.

 

As in bosses that really really really cannot be done with less than 5 or so people, but then with the advent of support mages team sizes can be shaved down a bit.

But then they'd likely need to build a better lootshare system for it to work out fairly too.

I think in the grand scheme of all things combat related in runescape you are right... healers don't have a place. At the very most I think jagex might consider support classes. If anything it would probably build on the assist system and some. They could do a concept based on symbiotic principles.

It would not be difficult to expand the tradition 'tank' role to have some support features, such as providing a damage bonus to teammates at the cost of their own dps. 50% tank dps lost, and 50% fighter dps gained, is usually a great tradeoff (especially with 2+ fighters).

 

You can also think of the 'voker' role which exists only since KK of course. If a voker can cast 'Freedom Other' at the tank, there's no need to do the whole shield switch thing, allowing vokers to use dw/2h, increasing overall dps.

I don't think I could take it seriously.
