Party hats are a status item, allways has been for as long as i can remember, why would that change or a better question why would you want to change it?

(party hats are obtainable) but it takes alot of hard work.

Trust me most people wear them because of the items status nothing more, and if you take the status away from the item they would not wear them, even most of you guys in here would not even wear them after the status is gone.

I had a Purple back in the day that i worked so hard to get, then the packers won the superbowl and i sold Everything i had and upgraded it to a green and took Pictures with my friends in the game and then we traded it around and took turns using the photobooth for the forum Pictures. then one of my friends i had known very well in the game for over 10 years took hes turn with my partyhat and logged off, never seen him since.

So to him my partyhat was worth more to him then our 10+ year friendship =/
Sad to say but i would give him my bank i have today to get him back in my Life thats how much he was worth to me..
Phats are near impossible to get without RWt. Admit it or pretend to think otherwise.
You would pay your bank to get a "friend" like him back in ur life? Again why? He's a thief.
Also back a few years ago partyhats were at 1-2b ok yes. But now flippers can simply scam/deceive new buyers into overpaying and if successful they just rebuy at a cheaper price. That's what changed my mind and is why i think existing partyhats should return - no matter how unlikely it is to some people.
Is it fair to you that these merchers can make 1 yrs membership money off just flipping a paper hat whereas ordinary players have to pay money, would it not be better if these phat owners also had to pay Jagex their bills with THEIR OWN money - rather than stolen money.

@Turksta That "near" part is what separate you as a partyhat owner and not, for instance i made around 1 bill from leveling invention to level 99 in gwd1 while also getting the boss pets, it took me Little over a week, sure i was very lucky with drops from sara, but even today the prices are the same.. so spending 1-2 months = your first phat guaranteed. so dont say its not possible, this is a game.. anything you want you can achieve with a Little determination.

And why i would want my friend back is because i enjoyed hes Company in the game we had fun basically and that is what a game is about, to enjoy & have fun.

Also many of the people that do flipp/trade phats do it because maybe they won a stake in duel arena and dont want the item itself just the value, and some people have to much bank value so they invest in phats because its a highly valued item.

They should by no means be of access from any other Place then hard work and dedication.
(if you say yeah well duel arena is not hard work bla bla bla)
(then remember you need the cash to duel in the first Place)
(Aka hard work).

And they will never be on treasure hunter for the simple fact that it is one of the most iconic items in the game.

Just as Mightymior has said, party hats aren't impossible to obtain. If you want a partyhat, work for it and earn it as others have did before you. To earn the money for a partyhat will become a journey of itself. Even if it takes you a year or more to obtain, your hard work will become a sense of accomplishment, and you will feel good knowing that you've worked so hard to obtain the most iconic item in the game.

If these items were to appear on treasure hunter which is frowned upon by many in the first place, nobody would want to wear them and they would lose their main appeal as to why players are attracted to them in the first place,
'they're discontinued.'
Partyhats give players something to work towards after they've maxed out, and that's why they're seen as end-game goals for a lot of people. I believe there are many factors that are contributing to the rise of these items. Just to name a couple: Inflation and most importantly, increasing demand. The price of an item is determined by what someone is willing to pay for it, it's that simple.

"i made around 1 bill from leveling invention to level 99 in gwd1"
Good for u, but thats u vs everyone else. If it took 1 week to get 1b phats for everyone everything except rares will be cheap.
"so spending 1-2 months = your first phat guaranteed. so dont say its not possible, this is a game.. anything you want you can achieve with a Little determination."
If only that were true. People work ingame for decade and still can't get it and with todays price they most likely never will.
"They should by no means be of access from any other Place then hard work and dedication.
(if you say yeah well duel arena is not hard work bla bla bla)
(then remember you need the cash to duel in the first Place)
(Aka hard work)."
Why? These items weren't originally intended to be something you need to work for and nor is it a treasure trail item. Also let me remind you the real world issues related with phats, Many ppl cant afford phats so they rwt and stake it away in duel arena in hopes of eventually being able to own a partyhat. Well they most likely lose it and develop a gambling addiction.

"And they will never be on treasure hunter for the simple fact that it is one of the most iconic items in the game."
The most iconic items would be rune armour, silverlight sword etc. Even so that has nothing to do with the reason i want it back.

The main point ur missing is the rich hoarders can deceive new buyers easily and oversell for 300m - which they then ebuy for cheaper. How is this not scamming? Also they pretty much got free 1 yrs of membership wif that phat scam.

Work for it as in irl and the rwt for it? Ok. When i worked for my red partyhat ages ago honestly it made me realise how pointless it was - I never felt a sense of accomplishment as actaul game content would e.g killing jad or quests
Again u cant say nobody would wear them, you don't know that.

OSRS has players wearing it all the time. It's only frowned upon by partyhat owners thats all. Because deep inside they know that the only reason they don't agree with this is because they know themselves if they didn't have the partyhat they would support this idea.

It is unlikely that it is due to inflation. As shown in the graphs below, over the last several years the Common Trade Index has exhibited some mild turbulence, even though the graph depicts numerous peaks and valleys, there does not appear to be a significant inflation rate overall.


In contrast, the partyhat graph appears to be an anomaly because the data depicts a rather steep incline in price. It is an incline that does not appear to be proportionate to the population of players which has remained fairly constant over the past several years.

So, it is not an increase in demand, but rather, there is a decrease in supply.

The supply of partyhats is decreasing. Perhaps removed from the game via banned accounts and whatnot. The supply also decreases when they begin to gather dust in a hoarders stacks. As the supply decreases the problem is that the fun also decreases.

To increase the fun, simply increase the supply, as the OP describes! :D

As the supply increases, market competition also increases because more sellers will emerge and market competition is healthy for a game, and it's fun too because more people can party in the partyhat market!

Increasing the supply will also help bring back lost friends because as the supply increases everyone will be able to share the fun of the partyhats and party like it's 2001 again!

So, this thread is worth supporting because market competition is fun and, it will help bring back lost friends and, Jagex will get more funding to make more updates for everyone to enjoy!!! :D
'O.o'
Something interesting happened.

38:25 says nothing about Treasure Hunter. He says "We're never adding partyhats", which is obviously a joke as they are all laughing. So don't worry! Your "confirmation" was just a joke!

Also, let's see... wildy, free trade, old school... Jagex confirmed that these would never come back. But, they did. Things can change. Especially if a lot of people support! Cheers!

I don't trust you because you're incorrect! Much more people would wear them! Cheers!

This was a sad story, but it shows another benefit from the rerelease: fewer people would get scammed! Cheers!
