Is this runescape or is this just fantasy
An escape from reality

I don't see why the research quest would have to be a lower requirement quest anyway. I took the option to be something more along the lines of 'okay, we know these are a thing now, so lets get out in the field and do some real work'. It's already been pointed out that researching them in a library sense would be utterly futile since we already seem to know everything any of the sentient races know, so unless Zaros want's to sit down to tea and let us pick his brain, research means fieldwork.
Field work would presumably mean Indiana Jones-ing our way into some ancient crypt/temple full of ancient and powerful enemies and maybe coming across some sort of ancient guardian. If Jagex want, they could even treat it as a 'we don't know' option and just run the quest on whatever Elder Gods they feel like, and just set it up so we are researching, which was probably going to be the pretense anyway.
As a side thought, didn't the entire Elder God line of quests start with a Master or Grandmaster?
they made it lower because they see it as another introductory quest branch (albeit at midrange because digging into ancient things of unimaginable power is at least midrange), and while zaros was involved with mah, the other elder gods aren't entirely connected to him until the forks merge back into the main arc
it'd be higher if we skip straight to digging up elder gods but that's not really proper is it now
but i think it'd be cool if we had another lore hub like ali that builds on each part, unless we just want to hand everything to him because eh
The point behind the research quest is that it would be the starter quest for the Elder God series. You won't need to have done the FotG questline to start it, and as long as they steer it away from mah they can really just start the questline new since we don't know too much about the others. I'm guessing the post quest FotG content is reporting our findings to Azzy and maybe also reporting other stuff like tzhaar bookcase or fighting the dragonkin jas curse in OoaK.

[Survey] Lore Books
Do in game books containing lore about the game world add to your enjoyment?
This poll will allow us to identify if Lore books are used by the community and judge the amount of time we should use writing them (if at all).
I love them!
I hungrily devour every book I can get my hands on!
I read some of them if I feel like it.
Collect, don't read
I want to own them all, but I don't read the text.
They're not important to me and I don't really interact with them.
I hate them!
I would prefer that they weren't in the game at all.
They could be judging the strength of it to see if they should tie more effort into it.
Is there honestly a need to survey if the community cares about lore books ...
it sure is weird for them to put up items that people actually buy as a reward
maybe sales have already peaked months ago?
Its supposed to be a freebie for P2P members and has been something of a trend expectation set by the community. I think in all honestly they just anti-up for the paying it forward to the population by giving them one of the least selling pieces so it can be appreciated by more instead of being lost in the shuffle.
Jagex was doing so well on these polls and then they went and became dumb again.
Things like the news poll and quest reqs poll for 'gathering data' would supply utterly useless data because they did not allow us to pick multiple options.
And then something like this - if this feeds in to dev tactics I'll be so angry. Yes it is a given a lot of players do not care about the lore, that is WHY lore is put into books and secondary things that you do not HAVE to read and understand to progress in-game. If you start putting less effort in to that because a bad option wins you are just giving the middle finger to all of us who DO care about the lore.
