Clan Citadel anyone?

That's speculation. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 19:14, July 2, 2011 (UTC)
It's also logic. (davelopo) 20:14, July 2, 2011 (UTC)
Speculation is often logical. It is still speculation though and has no place in the articles.  Summoning-icon Sci (talk) Enhanced Excalibur 20:18, July 2, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah. Read RS:NOT#CRYSTAL maybe, dave. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 20:40, July 2, 2011 (UTC)
I have. It's more encyclopedic to mention that people believe it than not. (davelopo) 20:48, July 2, 2011 (UTC)
I worded that badly. It's more encyclopedic to mention that people believe it than to not mention it at all. (davelopo) 20:52, July 2, 2011 (UTC)


Asteroids are rocks from space, these obviously have grass on them so the name is wrong. I don't know what is the right word for them though.  Summoning-icon Sci (talk) Enhanced Excalibur 20:07, July 2, 2011 (UTC)

Boulders? Ring of kinship Ciphrius Kane Dungeoneering cape (t) 20:09, July 2, 2011 (UTC)
Sounds more accurate than asteroids. Is there a specific name for boulders falling from the sky?  Summoning-icon Sci (talk) Enhanced Excalibur 20:29, July 2, 2011 (UTC)
I don't think there is O.O S T Y G 21:12, July 2, 2011 (UTC)

^that about sums it up :3 S T Y G 21:15, July 2, 2011 (UTC)
Meteors are rocks from space falling to Earth. Meteorites are ones that make it to the surface - IGaveUpCrackForThis 21:21, July 2, 2011 (UTC)

Why are people refering to these as "Bob"Edit

I've hear many people call these Bob and I was wondering why.Mu695 21:33, July 2, 2011 (UTC)

Why not?

Because Bob is a pro name! Ever heard of Tehnoobshow? :P Quest point cape Sir Fairfang Magic-icon 14:31, July 6, 2011 (UTC)
big ol' boulder maybe :)

Edits: Edit

Just so you know, Mobilising Armies has been mentioned twice in the list of places where they have fallen. So could someone edit one of them out.

Thannks for pointing it out.  Tien  21:41, July 2, 2011 (UTC)

Speculation Edit

Okay, let me start off saying RS:UCS. IAR. Nothing's set in stone. Okay. Now. Remove CRYSTAL from the discussion, as it doesn't apply, and you see it's not about speculation being allowed, so much as whether it's more encyclopedic to have speculation than not. My opinion is that the reader should be informed that there are similarities between the characteristics of Citadels and these rocks, reasoning further that the information on the similarities is encyclopedic and therefor should be included in the article. At the least include a little blip that says that there seem to be striking similarities between the rocks and Citadels- which is a fact. I can has debate time now. (davelopo) 22:16, July 2, 2011 (UTC)

There's nothing boulder-like in the citadel pictures. Come on people.. this isn't hard. No speculation on the articles. >.< Urbancowgurl777 (talk) 00:08, July 3, 2011 (UTC)
Let's use some Please? Denying the reader potentially useful information is not using Common Sense. It could be added in a trivia section like this...."Many players speculate that these rocks come from the future update: Citadels. Because of the similarities in the BTS pictures of citadels this month and the building chunks in the rock in game." Is it really that hard? :/

Well looks like they very well maybe related to citadels. uMAD? Jmod hinted at it in game (screenshot in page). This it's people like Urbanwhatsherface that give this wiki the ignorant stuck up attitude that prevents people giving thoughtful changes to the wiki articles. They fear their head is gonna be bitten off by one of you folks. Stop going by protocol and rules when some basic common sense really is all we need.
Ohhai! My name is Urbancowgurl, and I was going by the most basic of wiki rules - RS:CRYSTAL, as were most other editors. It has still not been confirmed, btw. (: Urbancowgurl777 (talk) 00:48, July 4, 2011 (UTC)
Use common sense, please? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Aliena Ferox (talk) on 05:45, July 4, 2011 (UTC).
Lol. I haven't even edited the Earthquake page so I'm not sure why you're attacking me. Urbancowgurl777 (talk) 05:28, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

Boulder AppearanceEdit

The brown boulders appear to have a green moss on them, as well as gray stone masonry fragments jutting from the largest of the boulders. Sanctumanon 23:59, July 2, 2011 (UTC)

ROTM anyone?Edit

I would like to suggest that it is not from the clan citadel update. I feel this because I see no reason as to having falling rocks as a clan citadel teaser. It seems more like something happened and the explosion made the rocks fly all over Runescape.

The only other update I can think of is the anticipated quest, Ritual of the Mahjarrat. Maybe something was destroyed/erupted/etc? Selaphiell 05:42, July 30, 2011 (UTC)

  • Well citadels do float above gielinor, so it makes sense that some may fall in realm that aren’t properly "maintained". But considering they don't cast a shadow, they may be not over those areas... (or really high up). The rocks do seem like they were part of land due the green and sometimes ruin on them. Maybe it was from the "planets aligning". The mahjarrat ritual and the sea slugs were both awaited for this. Since the last sea slug quest is this month, it seems possible. The alignment could have also knocked off some of the citadel realms... other than that I got nothing. If it isn't the alignment or citadels, I doubt it is anything known (no one figured strange power after all). Bio 01:07, July 3, 2011 (UTC)
  • Im sure its the citadel what else would make a rock fall off the sky Saradomin and Zamorak playing Dodge rock? Larmonas55 03:14, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

Could it do with something like the return of Zaros? Cause he did something similar to this by destroying a bunch of Zammy statues. Killercroc72 16:42, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

That's actually pretty interesting, although unlikely. There may have been some Zamorakian statues/something on the citadels and yeah... they went kerblooey.Quest point cape Sir Fairfang Magic-icon 14:26, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

I was thinking more about the citadels since they have come out and feel like something is off. The citadels seem to have simply been up in the sky, not pieces of land magicked into the sky. This makes me feel like the earthquake event was NOT from clan citadels. This doesn't point it at Rotm though. Selaphiell 05:41, July 30, 2011 (UTC)

I reckon its from Clan Cidents.Edit

1st of all, Why would it be from the sky? "Falling Rocks from Sky" ? Wth ... If that was it would be near a Mountain , you could even say its metores. > . <

2nd of all, It might be from Clan Cidents (75% to 25% chance) due to the unstable landscape up there . Use logic . As well, the pieces of rocks looks like its from up there . > . < Thank Chu' 05:22, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

Falling animation?Edit

Was there an actual animation showing the rocks hitting the ground or did they spontaneously appear after a game update? Cat mask ChainChomp2 (Talk) Giant pouch 06:23, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

I heard that it was an animation, though I am uncertain. Ts4kNfA.png 06:51, July 3, 2011 (UTC)
Link. You can also hear the rock hitting the ground if you listen carefully. Frede 07:03, July 3, 2011 (UTC)
Hurray! Cat mask ChainChomp2 (Talk) Giant pouch 07:07, July 3, 2011 (UTC)
There was an animation; small rocks "rained" on certain locations throughout RuneScape - I experienced one of these showers, and being the moron of a character I am, I decided to wander under such showers. Shortly after, there was an animation of a large boulder crashing onto the location of the "raining rocks". Any characters under such "rain" were thrown away from the location. Finally, the new meteor or boulder seemed to animate for a few seconds prior to being stasis. -Achiox 14:22, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

Clan Citadel teaser confirmationEdit

I've heard that this has been confirmed by a Mod that this is a Clan Citadel teaser. I can't find the proof, but I figured I'd mention it so somebody can find it and stop the speculation. GIAKEN 06:41, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for (somewhat?) confirming that I was RIGHT. I was the first to mention the connection between these strange rocks and the projected update, Clan Citadels. Why did I feel compelled to do so? Because I was curious enough to wander under the shower of "smaller" rocks falling from the sky (only in a certain radius west of Edgeville bank), prior to the large boulder hitting the ground (which sent any characters it struck flying backwards). It would be inevitable that out of thousands of people logged in that I wasn't the only one which was literally "hit" by the meteor. Before I continue, I must state: I AM A PRIMARY SOURCE. As I have previously mentioned, there was an "earthquake" throughout RuneScape (most of which can agree on), followed by "showers of small rocks" at certain locations (which seems noteworthy of discussion - why, I do not understand). Achiox 22:49, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

Size and location? Edit

could it show that it is directly above, if you were to connect the dots, in this case, the boulders. Or is it portals to the castle? keep your imagination open! --Qazwsx753421 07:09, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

I think Jagex just wants the citadels to be easily accessible in areas where clans usually meet up. Frede 07:18, July 3, 2011 (UTC)
I think the "portal" being constructed at the clan camp is the actual citadel portal, but I'm not sure if it was there before this update was announced. Cat mask ChainChomp2 (Talk) Giant pouch 07:19, July 3, 2011 (UTC)
The portal was at Clan Camp from the day it was released, I can clearly remember wondering about it. KwekkoTalkSummer pie 08:26, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

teleportation places?Edit

might these rocks be the places where u can teleport to the citadel, when it arrives? Leon Art 17:24, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

I think they're just random highly visited areas. Urbancowgurl777 (talk) 17:26, July 3, 2011 (UTC)
Highly visited areas? Sure, half the population of Gielinor practically lives at the GE, but Mobilising Armies and the Piscatoris Fishing Colony? I'm not so sure. KwekkoTalkSummer pie 19:01, July 3, 2011 (UTC)
These places can't be where you can teleport to the Citadels. I agree with Fergie, these can just be random highly visited areas- Piscatoris and Mobilising Armies are highly visited areas, only on the right worlds. Don't forget about the unfinished portal in the Clan Camp. S T Y G 19:03, July 3, 2011 (UTC)
yeah you might well be right ;) Leon Art 00:35, July 4, 2011 (UTC) still, woould be nice, if you could attach a rope to the citadel that leads down to the rubble.. but i think jagex will probably have a different idea. something along the lines of that the locals cleaned it away when the update is there. Leon Art 00:35, July 4, 2011 (UTC).
Maybe locations where you can choose to locate your Citadel. Tyras helm KingSpence96Talk 02:15, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Plus, you can't start a castle wars game just to teleport to the citadel--Qazwsx753421 09:37, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

I think that the rocks are just signifying where the different Citidals are. The portals are probably just nearby, like for castle wars, it is probably in the castle wars lobby. They are all near banks, which would make since. Killercroc72 15:59, July 7, 2011 (UTC)

Misc. and continuing debris Edit

One, the fact that the debris followed the earthquake obviously suggests that a chunk of Gielinor's surface was unearthed and somehow directed upward, thus producing the "rocks". Also, along with the rocks, there appears to be carved/shaped rubble of some sort. Of not much importance is how the boulders created virtually no indentation or crater (possibly determining the height from which they fell?). --Limxzero 18:29, July 16, 2011 (UTC)
