Wanted to post this out of curiosity, will we see an eventual return of discontinued 2013 and 2014 rares made available for rare item tokens or a TH promo? I also wanted to know if past items such as the demon horns made available from the blast from the past have a potential to be repeated. :)

Well they're meant to be discontinued, so they should remain as such. They could release alternate versions of those items though, and it'd be better since both old and new players would get something new then. > ) The Runescape Witcher

Well i mean, they brought back the ultra rare used to be samids gloves, shark fists, dragon ceremonial outfit - so i couldn't care any less if the ugly horns or others were brought back.

I mean if rereleasing it means satisfying players that might enjoy the now dead content item then sure, bring it back. Blackwing already has a ton of bragging rights over others with his exclusives.

Jagex would love nothing more than to be able to exploit an attitude like this, and the fact that you keep it up after seeing what happens when you give Jagex the foothold to exploit its customers, is all the more confusing to me. > )

Not necessarily; the key idea of making a separate item that's an alternative version of an old item, is that it won't be bound by the old limitations, unless you want to declare it so. Meaning that you could e.g. have a new version of horns come from actual gameplay, with or without membership needed to get it.

(And to be honest, IMO it should come from pretty much anything else but TH. Solomon's store could be a good choice.)
