One thing I miss about playing the original Runescape game (The one that's currently RS3) was that Rare items were extremely rare. It was always fun to grind skills and bosses to save up enough for my first rare item. It was a Santa Hat which was also one of my favorites. I think rare items helped make me enjoy the game even more because that was like an ultimate goal. Party Hats were a symbol of "oh wow he has BANK"! and "One day I'll be there". I think that maybe even new rare items could help do that! Right now a twisted bow and Scythe are practically those items. Maybe one day OSRS will have new cosmetic items that way! Hello there! I'm literally that Scrub ;)+

So you can get rich merching? Nty. Don't solely bash risky drop tables and not the risk-free ones then wonder why the JGods shut your opinions out when analyzing why PvP polls never pass.

This isn't 2007, nor is it rs3, why should phats be expensive? There's no such thing as 'rares' in OSRS so this suggestion would be a bit like me asking for Jagex to make my redwood logs rare just because I have a stack of them in the bank. There are plenty of expensive items in the game people use to flaunt their wealth, we don't need discontinued paper hats to do it.

You guys are right I could've worded this better and asked a better question. I guess I'm just missing the nostalgia of it all. I'm sure we've all been there just thinking about the rares being end game goals. Some might of been from merching at the Grand Exchange, some could've picked one up the day it dropped or others might have earned all of that over time. Everyone had a unique story and that is what I loved! Hello there! I'm literally that Scrub ;)+

If you truly want this, just play rs3.

No need to ruin a good game.

Im glad you finally saw the fault in this.

No support. I hated how the end goal was some pointless cosmetic. It should be a top-tier weapon such as a Twisted Bow or Scythe. Don't solely bash risky drop tables and not the risk-free ones then wonder why the JGods shut your opinions out when analyzing why PvP polls never pass.
