    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are holiday items?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    On three specific holidays, the Jagex Company treats their fellow RuneScape 
    players by dropping special items.  These items relate to the holiday that is 
    currently being celebrated.  Some holiday items are edible, some are wieldable, 
    and some have special, unique uses.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    What holidays are these items dropped?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    The only three holidays celebrated in RuneScape are Easter, Christmas, and
    Halloween.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    Will they drop these items on any other holidays?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    No.  The Jagex Company is located in Britain and certain holidays, which are 
    celebrated in other countries, are not celebrated in Britain.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    Where and when are these items dropped?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    The time and location of the holiday item drops are random.  Jagex will drop 
    theses items all throughout the day.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    How many of these items are dropped during a spawn?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    The average amount of items dropped during a spawn is hard to determine. These 
    items are dropped all over the RuneScape map.  Each spawn has a different 
    amount of items being dropped.  In the older holiday spawns, such as the 
    Christmas crackers, Jagex would drop a small little group of the items, 
    usually around six in each bunch.  In more recent holiday spawns, Jagex spaced 
    the items out all over the RuneScape map, for they are no longer dropped in 
    little groups.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    What's the deal with these system messages during the holidays?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    System messages are normally used to warn players about upcoming server 
    crashes, but holidays are a different story.  Jagex will use these system 
    messages to personally wish you a happy holiday.  Normally, Jagex will send 
    out the system messages moments before an item is about to be dropped.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    What's the best place to pick up these holiday items?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    The best thing to do when you are desperate for a holiday item is to go where 
    there are very few to no people.  Holiday items are also dropped in the 
    wilderness, which is, pretty much, a deserted area.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    What determines the value of these items?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    The rarity of the holiday item determines the value.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    How does the rarity of a holiday item change?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    The Jagex Company drops only a specific amount of holiday items and no more
    will ever be produced, with the exception of scythes and bunny ears.  There
    are only two possible ways that this specific number can decrease: if a
    RuneScape player casts an alchemy spell on a holiday item or if a RuneScape
    player happens to drop a holiday item and let it sit for a few minutes,
    causing it to vanish.  Of course, most RuneScape players aren't that careless
    and usually guard these items with their lives, so the risk of this happening
    is minimal.  The main reason that holiday items increase in rarity follows the
    point in the party hat value question.  Players tend to collect the holiday 
    items, store them in their bank accounts, and refuse to sell them.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    Why are party hats so high in value?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    When party hats were first introduced in the RuneScape world, they were very 
    common and had no store value.  In fact, they were so common that players 
    would sell them to the general stores for absolutely no profit.  Later, some 
    players decided to increase the rarity of party hats by collecting them and 
    storing them away in their bank accounts.  These players would go around 
    buying every party hat in sight.  Because of the low value of party hats, they 
    collected so many that the hats started to disappear.  This seriously affected 
    the RuneScape economy.  At first, players were giving up expensive pieces of 
    armor for these worthless, paper hats.  Yet, after seeing how the prices were 
    jumping, players decided to hold on to their hats and refused to sell them, 
    which increased the value even more.  Soon, these worthless hats became 
    treasured collectors items that sold for millions upon millions of gold 
    pieces.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    Why does the color of a holiday item determine its value?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    There are two sides to this story.  First off; party hats were randomly 
    created from Christmas crackers.  The color of the party hat could never be 
    determined.  This random number event caused specific colors to be more common 
    than others were; some were more rare.  At first, the color difference weren't 
    too large until blue and pink party hats were stored away more than others 
    were.  Another event that affected the color difference were the duplications.  
    The duplicators knew that pink party hats were most rare at the time, so they 
    focused specifically on duplicating them.  Before long, pink party hats were 
    so common that, they fell to be one of the least valuable party hats, causing 
    blue party hats to skyrocket in price.  The other side of the color values 
    involves Halloween masks.  The same numbers of different color masks were in 
    fact dropped.  To explain, I shall refer to the storage reasoning.  Like 
    rarity situations, RuneScape players stored masks as they wished in their 
    banks, causing different colors to alter in rarity.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    Why can't I trade certain holiday items?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    After noticing how wealthy players were becoming from these holiday items, 
    Jagex decided to make a couple fair rules with future drops.  First, holiday 
    items can no longer be traded amongst other players.  Second, only one of each 
    specific holiday item is allowed per account.  Third, these items can no 
    longer be sold to the general stores.  Fourth, holiday items can no longer be 
    drop transferred.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    Why did Jagex cancel the holiday drop on Christmas of 2003?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    The answer can be found on the Jagex home page under the RuneScape news 
    section.  One reason was that Jagex was too busy working on the RuneScape 
    sequel.  The other reason was because of what madness the past holiday items 
    have caused.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    What random items can come out of a Christmas cracker?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    The list of random items that Christmas crackers produce Is quiet large.  Yet,
    not all of them are known because RuneScape players did not come together to 
    collect the information.  Some of those items include: gold ring, 1 iron ore 
    certificate, black dagger, chocolate bar, partial chocolate cake, unicorn 
    horn, spinach roll, silk, and other useless items.  A Christmas cracker will
    never produce a quest item.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    Is there any possible way to trade a scythe/bunny ears?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    No, and there never will be.  Don't even attempt it.  Avoid buying these items
    from other players; it is a definite scam.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    Do the monsters in RuneScape ever drop holiday items?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    No.  This is one of the biggest rumors in all of RuneScape.  It is not 
    possible, and it never will be, for a monster to ever drop a holiday item.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    Are there any other ways to get these items after they are dropped?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    There are a few possibilities.  Yet, most importantly, the specific item will 
    never be dropped directly from Jagex ever again.  The only ways to receive 
    these items after they are done being dropped are the following.  Buying the 
    items from fellow RuneScape players could be considered either an easy or a 
    difficult option, due to money reasons.  Not only can you buy them, you also
    have the possibility of player killing someone to steal it from his or her 
    inventory.  Scamming is considered an option but it is not recommended because 
    it is against the RuneScape rules.  The last option is only aimed towards 
    scythes and bunny ears.  If you happen to lose one of these items, you can 
    travel to Varrock clothes shop and receive a new one for no price.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    Why did Jagex drop scythes on multiple days?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    Not all RuneScape players were able to get their hands on a scythe.  
    Therefore, Jagex received massive complaints about the unique times scythes 
    were dropped and rescheduled more spawns.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    Can I dye holiday items?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    This is also another one of the biggest rumors in RuneScape.  No, it is not
    possible to dye party hats or Halloween masks.  If it were possible, then
    there would be no specific value for each color because the rarity would
    constantly change.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    How do I duplicate holiday items?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    You can't so don't even try.  It is against the RuneScape rules.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    How did people manage to duplicate items?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    The process is unknown to many.  The only known information is that some fool 
    was messing around with an Auto Rune cheating program.  This person was 
    attempting to trade a scythe, failed, and yet later realized that this program 
    could duplicate items in a specific way.  Fortunately, Jagex later took care 
    of the bug.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    Who discovered the duplication bug?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    The main duplicator is a RuneScape player that goes by the name SixFeetUnder.  
    This person, and those he taught the bug to, were all banned.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    Why do you not list holiday item prices?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    The main reason is because prices are constantly changing and it all depends 
    on the barters that take place.  The guide would need constant updating and 
    would not always be accurate.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    How can I find out the holiday item prices?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    Other than standing around the main market observing every deal that takes 
    place, you can always talk to other players to find out prices of these items.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    Are they going to drop party hats again next year?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    This is again one of the most common rumors in RuneScape.  Players constantly 
    ask if specific items will be dropped again next year, in hopes that they can 
    easily pick something up off the ground & become a millionaire.  First, check 
    this guide for the correct date that certain holiday items were dropped.  
    Then, if you read the other FAQs, you will notice that holiday items only are 
    dropped on one specific day and never again, with the exception of scythes.  
    Do not rely on holiday items for unfair wealth.  Do not ever expect to pick an 
    item off the ground and become rich with a few simple clicks.  It does not 
    work that way.
    
    /\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\
    Did holiday items change after the RuneScape sequel was released?
    \/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/-\/
    
    Very few changes actually took place in the new RuneScape game.  The most 
    obvious change was the different appearance of the items.  Also, some of the 
    character status affects that wieldable items had were either removed or 
    dramatically changed.  According to most players, what appeared to be pink 
    party hats in RuneScape Classic have become purple in the new RuneScape.  The 
    other change, which isn't too noticeable, involves the different wording of 
    item examination description.

    Duplication Issue
    \/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
    
    On the night of November 6, 2003, there were several rumors going around that 
    RuneScape items could now be duplicated.  Not much later, a record amount of 
    party hat owners and sellers show up in world one market and begin to sell 
    them for very cheap prices.  Near the end of the day, several merchants were 
    selling full inventories of pink party hats for nearly three fourths of the 
    price.  Fellow RuneScape players become suspicious.
    
    On November 7, 2003, Jagex has announced that a major bug has been discovered 
    and that several RuneScape players were duplicating items, mainly party hats 
    and Christmas crackers.  These duplications are against the RuneScape rules 
    but even more importantly; it highly effected the RuneScape economy.  Prices 
    dropped dramatically and several players have quit the game because of high 
    money losses.  Jagex announces that they will reward the first person to 
    report how the bug works a free lifetime membership.  Within a couple hours, 
    Jagex receives over 600 messages and they quickly shut down all the RuneScape
    servers at approximately 10:45 A.M. (United States Central time).  The bug is 
    quickly fixed yet no actions have been taken against the duplicators and 
    duplications.  Jagex also announces that they are trying their best to take 
    care of the unfair wealth and cheaters.  They advise their fellow RuneScape 
    players to neither buy nor sell any party hats and to drop any party hats you 
    currently own in which you believe could be a duplication.
    
    Unsurprisingly, RuneScape players don't listen to a word that Jagex says. That
    very night, numerous low level characters stand around world 1 market trying 
    to purchase and sell party hats at very low prices.  The RuneScape economy 
    seems doomed because of the tragic money losses.  Very few actually understand
    what this bug was and how it worked.  It is still unknown as to what actions 
    Jagex will take against these duplications and tragic money losses.  Majority 
    of the on-going rumors say that the duplicates will be easy to spot and delete
    from the Jagex database.  Other rumors say that party hats will finally be un-
    tradable to control all the unfair wealth and greed.

    Weeks later
    \/\/\/\/\/\/
    
    Still not everything has been taken care of.  The Christmas cracker duplicates 
    have been deleted but duplicated party hats are still among us and the prices 
    are still at an all time low.  Rumors of party hats being dropped again were 
    going around yet it was not true.  Unfortunately, this seems like the end of 
    the duplication issue.  Party hats are everywhere and the prices are low yet 
    still rising.

    Months later
    \/\/\/\/\/\/
    
    A final update.  The results are finally verified.  Yes, the few players that 
    understood the duplication bug were in fact banned.  The bug was fixed, 
    duplicated Christmas crackers were deleted, but party hat duplications are 
    still around.  Party hat prices are finally rising very slowly and will 
    eventually pass the recent peaks.  There are no more worries about value 
    drops.  The whole ordeal is over.

    Future Drops
    \/\/\/\/\/\/
    
    Many rumors about future drops have been going around.  Some say that Jagex 
    has put a stop to holiday items because of the unfair wealth that they have 
    caused.  Yet, if Jagex does continue holiday item drops, the rules that were 
    placed upon bunny ears and scythes will affect all future holiday drops.
    
    Yet, after 2 holiday item cancellations, it seems as if this is the end of all 
    the holiday drops.  Certain events might take place during holidays in the new 
    RuneScape but never in the classic version.
