To understand the Demon Slayer quest, I went online to Jagex website to copy this info and it reads after their event of demon flash mobs description as:
Demon Slayer Quest Rework (free players and members)
The Wilderness isn't the only place where demonic forces pierce the veil. In a rework of the old Demon Slayer quest, you'll help Grüfeld Bach - demon hunter extraordinaire - to foil a wicked plot against Varrock by finding the legendary sword Silverlight.
The new quest is a much more focused experience than its travel-heavy predecessor, as you complete trials to test your mind, body and spirit on your quest for the sword, and comes complete with shiny new graphics and amazing audio.
If you've already completed the old version of the quest, you'll be able to replay this one. You won't get any more Quest Points for doing so, though, and you won't need to complete the new quest in order to wear your quest cape or completionist cape.
So whats the point ? I get another silverlight sword... or I just waste my time for a quest I have already done? Is this a trend that some of our member quests will be redone in the near future? Maybe this is good in some way, but bad if we have to do it again. It seems that some of the quests dont meet the challenge standards - now that we have EoC. I guess Jagex didn't realize that they made the game easier not challenging, as they thought in the first place.
creeping featurism is like this.....
The way RS has changed would be comparable to a hypothetical famous book author publishing a popular book that sells, and then a year later changes the book story adds/subtracts portions of what he/she thinks should be modified and then republishes it. Now which book makes sense to you, the one where the good guy wins at the end or where the good guy dies at the end? More often the story author has the tendency to add more vs. subtract parts of the story plot line as it is modified. It would be similar, but not exactly - to the way director Peter Jackson doctored J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings original story for the movie series so that your confused from what you read in the book(s).
Similary I am confused why Jagex bothers changing Demon Slayer with a new story plot line ( or for that matter Rune Mysteries, or what was once the Prince Ali rescue quest , that is now Stolen Hearts ).
Maybe I am wrong about the f2p quests being reinvented, perhaps the next new generation of RS players will appreciate it. As far as you who have been playing RS since its inception - may have been asking why and what for is this happening in your thoughts. For me, it doesn't ruin my enjoyment of RS, it just adds confusion - but that about all it does.
I don't understand the reinvention of Demon Slayer.... do you ?
