"Elf city will be available to everyone"-regardless of requirements-says Jagex

Helm Lardar

2,565 views

Edit: panic over! The new Q&A, set up in the 'power to the players' section of the RSOF, has mandated that 'Within the Light' will be a requirement to access some of the city, with access to more of the city coming after another Grandmaster Quest. Which will be released soonish. Like Priffidinas was. MEP2 was released in 2005. Just think about that. It will probably take 9 years to reach MEP3, the new quest's 'working title'.

"I think in order to avoid bias on the first poll, Jagex needs to state whether there will be any requirements use the new Elf City or Inventor.

 

If there were high level and quest requirements for the new Elf City but Jagex didn't tell us, any low levels that voted for it would be pissd. The same thing would happen if it was the other way around."

 

You're right, we'll always make it clear if there will be requirements to access new content. Both the Inventor and Elf City will be available to everyone - but of course, you will be able to shape how both of these take form and the requirements to use them in future polls!

Screw. That. This is a repost from reddit because I think it's essential in understanding the poll. Elf City, apparently, doesn't require quests. So, uhh, all the stuff you did to get to the forest? Meaningless. Not cool, Jagex. I don't even play any more and somehow the thing that annoys me the most turns out to be this.

I agree with you. Also, not sure how it's going to be the "Varrock for High Levels" if it's open to everybody.

I disagree Regicide and Underground Pass are two of the most well-done quests imo.

 

I've said this before but Prifddinas should be unlocked after Mourning's End Part III

Within the Light was a meh quest. But it will be stupid! You've been into Prifddinas with this new update, explored and skilled and done everything. And at the end of Within the Light you find out that Prifddinas has reverted to crystal form and you are looking for ways in.

Well, I did The World Wakes and haven't done While Guthix Sleeps.

Which really grinds my gears (not you)

I enjoyed Underground Pass, though I probably wouldn't have if it hadn't been hyped up as "the quest everyone hates". It was good, but not incredible.

 

The worst quests of all time are the first 2 myreque ones.

 

Glad you guys are also annoyed.

I think the reason everyone hates it is that everyone hates training Agility so they only get the minimum required to complete the quest. This means that they fail the obstacles constantly and have to start over.

Probably. I think that sort of thing is going to feel inherently unfair, because any other skill check is generally 'you have the skill, you succeed'. Making these things based on weight alone (and making that obvious) would allow you to keep the fun mechanics these obstacles introduce (some falling can give tension, a lack of gear also furthers that) while avoiding endlessly frustrating certain players. It's not unusual for a quest to be significantly worsened by agility obstacles that are easily failed at the required level (ROTM's Kethsi, MEP2's broken gap, Underground Pass's cavern of cages, that Fremmenik thing with the water...)

 

Also, I now remember enjoying Underground Pass quite a lot. Not sure why I said it was just good. It was really good. Like, they absolutely nailed the atmosphere in that quest, seriously. It wasn't as good as finding Meiyerditch (seriously, a maze city? *awesome*) or WGS or TWW, but it was probably the best quest I'd ever done at the time I did it.

I presume you've heard by now, but if not:

The Elf Lands will have the same requirements as they do now - completion of Underground Pass. To access the Elf City, our current plan is to make it available only to those who have completed Within the Light.
