So I've been seeing the discountinued items list to price check my "rares" I currently have 1 black Santa hat, 4 red Santa hats, 2 Christmas scythes. These are the only Christmas items I own. I read in the forums that these aren't real rares, meaning jšgex could make them spawn again in the game. So should I sell them all now before they plummet to 1gp or something. I had to sell my body to afford these things. I would be really sad if I lost all my hard work in a few days. are they going to be released again in Christmas or some other event?

Someone please let me know, thanks.

Cant ever say for sure if Jagex rereleased old holiday items unless they have confirmed it wont happen. I would say its very very unlikely that red santas will be reintroduce in game because it is iconic item from rs classic times like hweens, phats and edibles(egg,pumpkin, disk,wine). Bsh and scythe are newer rares so I wouldnt be surprised if they were popped in game during some christmas event. Small chances.. but could happen.

Black santa is discontinued,
But red santa and rainbow scythe could be rereleased any time.
Christmas scythe rainbow scythe is a promo item so that means its certain.
About the red santa im not sure,
it depends on what jatex wants and also what the players want.

Simply put.

If you want a rerelease of an item i recommend asking jatex themselfs.
If alot ppl would want that and they also contact jatex they "might" consider the option.

im just thinking outloud here and i would love to get feedback on my way of seeing it.

Edit: got confused with the scythe names :D

Lets put it this way for a minute... There was recently an event, i believe Mod Lee held it, that awarded, by name, a Once-in-a-lifetime item reward.

No previous event or item has ever held that phrase "once in a lifetime." So i think it is safe to assume that this will be a new practice for items they truly mean to make once and only once. Never to return.

Until this becomes certain, and any past events they make final decisions on are edited to match accordingly, assume that the term "Discontinued," which has never in reality meant "never to return," is just a word meant to be defined simply as "stopping production." Like it has always been defined as.

Discontinued has an antonym, Continue. Which means "To Continue Again." So by legal standards, a continued product is not anything out of the ordinary when said products have high enough demand, or if they have enough of a reason to bring said items back, even in other ways or forms than their first release.

While there are plenty of people who own all of these items whom would hate for them to come back, and dent their own banks. There are Many more, including the current owners, whom could use the extra supply as tools and goals to work with/for. So i personally think a rerelease of any of these items, even partyhats, would be for the better in the long term.

Yeah, pretty much i guess. They were fine for the first 12 years of their existence, to an extent, but now theres just such a small, limited, monopolized supply that only people of the highest wealth status can ever get now. It would be better to repopulate the items to rebalance their prices to a healthy amount, to make them better tools for more people instead of being the highest profit source for only the richest people.

Yeah of course they can, they make the game.

Jagex can also spawn Partyhats, 3a items, Staff of Sliske or any other item in the game. Jagex could also just give every active player next Christmas one of each Partyhat and Santa like OSRS does, if they wanted.

Will they though, no, obviously not.

Leaving rares alone, letting them dwindle away from the game, is better than bothering them or changing them, which would cause a lot more problem for the game, than just the rares increasing to near-unobtainable levels.
