The rainbows have settled over Gielinor again, bringing luck, new rares and plenty of prize multipliers! Join in from 00:00 game time on the 22nd November through to 23:59 game time on the 27th November.


Multipliers


While opening the rainbow chests, you can win multiplier tokens, which unlock multipliers on your prizes for the rest of the promotion - up to a dazzling x7!

This multiplier applies to everything on Treasure Hunter (except for multiplier tokens themselves), so upgrade it as far as you can for maximum benefit!


Rainbow-Coloured Rares


You can also get your hands on brand new rainbow-themed prizes, the Pot of Gold orb, Rainbow Wand and shiny Rainbow Halo! They're tradeable rares, and will be just as sought after as the previous rainbow items - the Rainbow Amulet, Cape, Bow and Parasol. You will also have the chance to get these previous items during this promotion, if you don't already have them unlocked.

May you be blessed with multi-coloured luck and amass your prizes this week - have fun!




What is Treasure Hunter?


Treasure Hunter is playable from within RuneScape, allowing players to use Keys to claim in-game items as prizes. These range from useful resources to rare weapons and exclusive gear.



Playing Treasure Hunter is simple - click the treasure chest icon that pops up when you log in. If you've not played before, just follow the on-screen guide.



Everyone gets at least one Key per day, and RuneScape members get two. You can earn more Keys while playing the game, or stock up by redeeming Bonds.



If you'd like more, you can also buy Keys on the website, or by clicking 'Buy Keys' within the Treasure Hunter interface in-game.

Please make it clear to players that Tradeable Rare does not mean discontinued.

I know the difference, but as seen with the wieldable mainhand and off-hand Turkey incident, some players do not.

If Jagex does not say an item is discontinued, it may be released again at a future date, even if it says Tradeable Rare or Limited, it is not the same as discontinued which has no current plans to be re-released. Notice I said no current plans to be re-released and not that they will not be re-released ever again.

Even discontinued just means not currently available through gameplay and is not a promise the item will never to be released again as far as I can tell. Although most players probably think of discontinueds as never being released again, the marketplace Discontinued Items forum specific rules does not say they will never be released again, which suggests they might be recontinued at some point, even if there are no plans to do so at this time. Some items might never be re-released, but any item could be re-released theoretically.

I am not sure if Jagex would want to make a list of items they would promise never to re-release, since policy may change in the future. If a list of items that Jagex would promise never to recontinue were to exist, the marketplace Discontinued Items forum specific rules would seem an appropriate place for such a list.

When Jagex makes a news post, please state if an item may return again. Some players think Tradeable Rare means discontinued, although it does not. Also, just because an item may return again it is not a promise that it will.

They were sought after back when people were naive enough to believe you that they'd be discontinued. Now they're just trash that nobody takes seriously.

If you get them with Treasure Hunter keys great, if not they are tradeable so you should be able to get them by buying them from the GE or another player.

Indeed. I've got low offers in the GE ATM... I'm just not sure if I want to spend >15m on them, which seems to be the going rate.

So hey, MTX Team...You hear what's been going down in Belgium, Hawaii and Victoria right now?

Might want to start considering either retooling some of this as stuff to sell in Solomons or earn in game...or, failing that, perhaps consider checking with some employment agencies. Just saying.
Fullblown non-playing lurker since 26/06/17. May come back if both the devs and the MTX team get their bloody act together.
