15th February 2016 - New Quest - Nomad’s Elegy | Sliske’s Countdown Begins

Recommended Posts

Whenever Nomad is around, the very fabric of Gielinor is sure to be in peril. This time, he’s trying to harness energy from all the deceased souls in Gielinor. In this new quest, travel to the afterlife, ally with the dead, lay siege to his fortress in the Underworld and stop this madness in its tracks!

 

But your path will not be a set one. Do you have what it takes to make some difficult choices? And what connection will your decisions have on Sliske’s Scoreboard and that nefarious Mahjarrat’s mad game? There’s only one way to find out…

 

How to Start

 

Take the portal south-west of the Edgeville bank to Soul Wars Island. There, talk to Zimberfizz to start the quest.

 

 

Requirements:

You must be a RuneScape member

 

You must have Level 75 in the following skills: WoodcuttingMiningConstruction.

 

You must have completed the quests Dishonour among ThievesThe Mighty Fall,The Void Stares BackNomad’s RequiemThrone of Miscellania and Heart of Stone.

  Recommended:

 

High combat stats and good equipment are strongly recommended for this Master difficulty quest. Lore fans may also wish to complete Blood Runs Deep and While Guthix Sleeps prior to this quest.

 

Rewards

 

Completing the quest will reward you with large XP lamps for several skills and some Invention blueprints to create some unique and powerful items.


  Enjoy!

 

Remember, a series of manipulations and betrayals have led to this point, so danger will lurk around every corner.

So that was eventful!

 

I'm curious how the choices near the end affect things

 

I let Iccy get the kill and he is now joint second with Arma and Rago. If you let Death get the kill does he join the score board?

Also epic misleading when the dialogue asks who to let kill nomad and then they kill gielinor instead.

Also I killed Nomad and Sliske took the body away (ugh hello annoying wight in later quests) what happens if you let Nomad live?

Does killing/sparing Nomad alter the World Guardian joining the score board or your score? I got 1 point for a win making me joint 3rd with Sara and Brassica

I had Death kill the Bloodborne-Guthix and so Death received a win (and therefore three points). I like both Death and Icthlarin, but Death wins in ties because of Pratchett (even if the RuneScape Death isn't similar).

 

I spared Nomad, which seems unfortunate for him after his reaction upon being whisked away by Sliske ("Noooooo!")... Still counts as a defeat, though, so I have a point.

 

 

 

Quest was good. Nomad fight (fights?) were too easy, though. I only died a few times because I couldn't be bothered to bring decent armor and a beast of burden... Even still, not remotely comparable to Nomad's Requiem (excluding the cheesy Kyatt method found soon after release and the easification brought on by Evolution of Combat).

your score doesn't change either way, because defeating nomad only counts as one point (nomad is not a god, just a really buff mortal)

 

well, was a mortal anyway, now he's a wight lol

 

the dialogue said gielinor for me, might have been a fixed typo

 

was there any difference in giving nomad the shard of jas from earlier???

Why use hide tags? No one here to be spoiled.

 

And they get the three points for performing the stroke on the other, not Nizo-Mizad.

We are using hide tags because there are people who read these forums even if they do not post and we don't want to be inconsiderate ass-wipes and post spoilers people can't avoid whilst it is still new content.

I also haven't done the quest yet (two other ones to do first) and also don't need to know every detail.
