Also, Dorgesh-Kaan is no more. It was destroyed recently enough that there were enough intact goblin inventions to reverse engineer several electric appliances. But still. DESTROYED BY THE WRATH OF BANDOS
ZANIK
. Sure, Bandos was likely greatly weakened by Guthix, but it seems that his chosen commander still rose.

ZANIK'S ALIVE!


Erm.... Not quite. Without us there, assuming Zanik ever left Dorgesh-Kaan, Zanik would have died at HAM's hands and had nobody to take her to the Tears of Guthix. More notably, there would have been nobody around to expose Sigmund's attempt to frame the Dorgeshuun.

At best, Zanik would have been leading the Dorgeshuun against an assault by the military of Lumbridge without her Bandos Avatar form (never taken to Yu'biusk) until HAM brought the cave down upon their city.


According to Zemouregal's notes, Zanik is appointed Chosen Commander by Bandos and goes to the Temple of Lost Ancients to lead Bandos' forces there. Under her leadership, the forces of Bandos push back their enemies, seize all the pieces of the Godsword, and use the reforged weapons to achieve final victory over all other forces. However, Zanik, overconfident in her victory, then discovered and opened the ancient prison beneath the temple and was killed by Nex instantly.

Plus it was stated that the tears of Guthix didn't save her, it was Bandos, That's why when she was dying in Mighty Falls, because Bandos used up his energy to save her, weakening him to a lower tier.


Did I miss something really obvious or was this an oversight? Zaros didn't go to Gielinor because he didn't feel Seren's pull, right? How could Nex be resting underneath the temple in that case?

Fair enough, considering the Loarnab/Zaros parallel. However, this made me really curious as to why he would create something like that. I can't quite imagine Loarnab visiting the Ilujanka and taking pity on them, eventually leading to Nex' creation.

(Honestly, if this is already known there must've been a lot I've missed in DoD)

Gee, my lore knowledge wasn't as up to date as I had thought. Thanks for pointing this out all! And this is most certainly an interesting discussion. I'll continue stalking this thread until I have something more meaningful to contribute myself :P

Alright, I'll bite again. It somewhat bugs me that there is no sign of Vorago's borehole in the DoD universe. He has at least one confirmed awakening with that Maul of Omens incident, so we know he's there alright. Now, we've got the following gods (presumably) running rampant across Gielinor:

- Xau-Tak
- Amascut
- Guthix (though he's most likely napping)

And given enough time, Hazeel will most likely grow into a god as well if he's really in control of that much land. It makes me wonder...

How much does it take for Vorago to wake up again?
