You'd be surprised :(

Oh yeah and like ... the World Gate is kinda just sitting in the middle of some random forest? No active volcano or epic buildup? :P

Unless it's like some portal that's summoned at-will, maybe.

Mark's new hair is also pretty cool lol

 

Tbf when we saw Guthix use it it was in the middle of a meadowy area if we assume it cannot be moved and was simply 'sealed' away it'd of had to have been buried and that sharp 'cliff' edge does suggest it may have been exposed by being 'unburied' plus they did mention way back when about repairing it so presumably that sparkly working form wont be what we initially find.

Me and some friends had some theory Zaros took the portal with him during the war against Icthlarin. As the Mahjarrat drove the Zarosian forces back beyond the desert lands, the portal got lost near a cliffside, which is now down the well in Polivneach. The strange machinery is there and bares a resemblance to a portal. I had it backed up with lots of lore transcripts. But alas, seems like it just stayed where the elves lost it to Zaros. :P

Looking at the picture, I suspect somewhere near Ardougne, next to Arandar. When you look closely to the left of the portal, you can see a smoke puff coming out of a chimney, with a straw roof. The only place I know with such roof is Ardougne. :) It would make sense, as Zaros send spies to that region, along with Zamorak and Perjour. It's also close enough to the Elves. :) Just some cents I wanted to drop. :P

That's exactly what I think of when I see the world gate. Oh how I miss SG1.

otherwise everybody would have to take turns bringing their armies in

There's only one. :P

Checked every piece of lore on it.

Also, the World Gate and the Portal of Life from Meeting History and thus the portal Guthix used to transport races to Gielinor.

 

Tier 4 gods can summon temporary portals to transport armies too, and it seems Icthlarin can too.

Indeed there is only one world gate but tier 4 gods upwards can make their own temporary portals.

 

I think Guthix opted to use it as it was stable and offered a 'safer' way to bring races to this ideal world - I mean he had other means its mentioned he original found Gielinor using the sword as it could open portals.

It's also possible in the 1st age Guthix was simply not that strong - he was fresh to godhood via Skagaroth's power and had the sword but presumably it took some time whilst he had the sword, staff, stone and horn to elevate him right up to the higher tiers.

Yeah, and the sword seems to give no general direction to where he went, or he was just not minding where he went.

Maybe the sword broke because he used its power to make the portal? :P

I respect the idea for unique player decided content but I feel like this is just going to lead to a trainwreck of storylines as every player has some different idea of RS lore because they decided Zaros shouldn't come back to take over the world or not...anyway...been waiting since I first started playing for Zaros to come back so I'm excited.

When they discussed it in the podcast they said Zaros would return no matter what, player choice would just decide in what form and to an extent at what strength (but always within tier 2) which is pretty much a get out of jail free card when it comes to moving forward because at tier 2 godhood even in his weakest form no-one really poses a threat to Zaros aside from maybe Seren and the Elder Gods.

 

And truth be told I expect it will be a lore factor that no god will try to mess with Tier 2+ - I mean the last time they annoyed tier 2 they got thrown out of the world in the blink of an eye. About the only tier 2 action I expect we could see will be Zaros and Seren interplay, Elder god smiting and perhaps Sara ascending and trying to meddle but ultimately failing (especially as Sara seems likely to annoy both Seren and Zaros)

Ah alright, that makes more sense. Perceived player choice haha.
Re Sliske, kind of wish they would have a more respectable/intimidating villain than this guy. He just pisses me off with his silliness/immaturity. But I guess that's the point.

Seems a rather boring month.

 

"homeworld of the Mahjarrat and the realm that Zaros retreated to following Zamorak's treachery."

 

Seems an interesting realm to visit though and I hope we will be able to revisit or that there's something more to do :)... :drool:

Oh yeah, a new training ground with new NPCs or dangerous skilling area would be fun to play with. Of course, chances are that it'll only be useful (or probably only exist) for the duration of the quest.

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

I'm betting an imaginary sum that zero of what you choose in this quest will actually affect anything other than certain NPCs in your own timeline

You have to keep in mind that mahjarrat memories, as far as learning about the other gods that have died, set us up for jagex bringing us to hidden caches of god energy. I would emphesize hidden because most think once a god dies that everyone and their mother is sucking up that energy.
