What work did you actually do to get any of the previous Beach rares? Really? I'd like to hear about it. Or, hell, any of the TH "rares" at all?


how is this relevant to the problem?

but ummm *drinks shot* yea... it's treasure hunter, people generally pay IRL money for those keys aaaand last I checked IRL money comes from... yup, you guessed it! WORK!

EDIT : forgot about the beach rares =P yea, we do work for those. you need to grind for the titles and suits. that is also WORK.

and just to clarify. This is not me raging on because my "rare" capes just became junk items. I sold mine a few weeks ago(I don't count the necklaces as rare, they were really common to begin with) this is me raging on about a tradeable "rare" event that is so common now that it has become a joke.

"rainbow's endless" as in the friggin' thing is a circle. It's been resurrected more times than Goku... Seriously, it's funny. I'm laughing now.


The real real question is why does jagex need to care about how you spend your real work money? Every transaction you made was done willingly and you knew what you were doing. Theres no argument here. How you spend your money isnt the Jagex's problem

Rainbow and beach items ar both not discontinued.
Also if you pay with irl money you support it so I don't see the problem?


1. The beach has nothing to do with the treasure hunter MTX system nor do any of the prizes.

2. the rainbow items not being discontinued are part of the issue. On a previous post on the subject I suggested they SHOULD make new rainbow items and discontinue the old ones. I have no problem with the promotion itself but rather the reintroduction of rares and the stale feel of the promotional rewards. If for example they had discontinued the cape and necklace for good(or atleast for a long time) then the bow and parasol would not feel so cheap. This hurts jagex in the long run. People do not trust them anymore.

3. I pay IRL money for keys to spend however I choose. This does not mean I support everything don't by jagex as a whole to whom I give my money. Not that is any of your business but I use most of my bought keys for obtaining DC items and/or skill suits which I want. I also use keys for events such as the zombie "bingo" if I don't have the time to finish them on my own.

on topic, I agree with CryingHawke, if they simply repeat promotions, they will get less and less buyers for it each time, wasting what could've been New content that could perhaps add to the one they would've added in the first place. Like how they added the bow and parasol, they devalued the cape even more by keeping it in the event when it could've been entirely separate. not mentioning this is what, the 3rd or 4th time they've released the cape again?

TBH I think we are good on promotions for a while if all they do is stop jagex from fixing the rest of the game.

This is a very simple concept that seems to be ignored for fsm knows what reason.

- The price of discontinued items is based heavily on investors.
- Ruining investor confidence by re-re-re-re-releasing (yes, rainbow capes + necklaces have been released 5 times) these "tradeable rares" reduces their price.
- Low price = low incentive to buy keys.
- Low incentive to buy keys = low Jagex profit.

And because one does not deserve to complain without offering a solution...

Solution: When releasing a "tradeable rare", actually make it a "tradeable rare", I.E. discontinue the damn thing for good. Then when it's time for more MTX, make a new item and discontinue that thing too!

Result: Investor confidence restored > Price of items rise > People incentivized to buy keys > More Jagex profit!

So... what I said is true? well gosh darn it! I hate being right! oh wait... no I don't!
