Wait... was that a quest I just did? Seriously... THAT was a quest? I thought quests at least had you do something that took more than 1 minute. This one was a complete gimmie.I'd have expected more from the first quest of the year but this was disappointed it was so easy. What are your takes on it?

You are talking Rubbish! This quest was made to introduce the new summoning beast: The Phoenix.... There are big and long and hard quests, and there are short ones...Why making a quests that will take 3 days to complete, and you have to train 50 levels in Magic before you can start it? If you just want to introduce the Phoenix, there is no need for it.... I did it, I've completed it, and I liked it...Don't complain man, next time you have a quest like While Guthix Sleeps

I love the rewards as well , I just found the quest itself a little too short & full of holes. Holes like , If her servants were making the baskets before & performing the rituals why didn't they do this one? & How was she injured? The quest just seemed thrown together.

Yeah the quest was really short. But actually going through the dungeon and fighting the phoenix is much more rewarding. Though I still haven't gotten my phoenix pet :/

Yea, I've been going every day. I hope the pet is cool!

They couldn't do it like minigame because it is just some experience for high leveled players so they made very easy quest with really good reward (something like devious minds) It is just quest with great reward after the quest (like tears of guthix) The true quest is the distractions and diversions part.

They still could have given it a little more plot like tracking down how the phoenix was injured just to make it a little more interesting. Perhaps an evil mage had cast a spell to drain her power or something? Not saying it hard to be hard but there should have been more sustenance to it.

i haven't done this one yet, i have actually given up on quests as they require too many items to complete these days. i used to love doing them, and i kinda liked my quest cape too, but now i find them tedious if they are for higher lvled players and boring if they are for lower lvled players (i just can't win lol). last one i bothered with was summers end, so i am now left with a couple to do... my list will get bigger the longer i leave it though (ha!) maybe i'll get the questing bug again one day, but for now i can't be bothered no matter how easy they are. and in pyre need was probably so easy due to it being for a familiar, look how easy wolf whistle was...
