RuneScape player 120King Say They started cooking swordfish at 6:40 on Monday morning. After four hours and “approximately” 4,000 cooked swordfish, they obtained one of the eight fragments needed to obtain a golden party hat, a piece of equipment that gave the wearer zero attribute benefits. They must acquire the other seven fragments before January 3 to get a hat that does nothing, but it may one day make them rich RuneScape.
The last time party hats were on the market was 20 years ago. These originals will definitely not bring any benefit to the wearer. They are now worth more than 2.1 billion gold, making them the most valuable items in RuneScape.
This is a classic example of the economic logic of video games: the original party hats are valuable because they are useless. RuneScape developer Jagex stated that when the “partyhat” items were first distributed during the 2001 Christmas event, they were “inherently worthless and disposable.”Apart from looking festive, there is no benefit to wearing them-they are similar to Christmas cookies——After the event, many players threw them away.
Jagex did not reissue the hat the following year, nor did it reissue it. Over time, some players who kept party hats stopped the game, further reducing the supply. The hat becomes a symbol of a person’s status, whether it is an old player or a rich person.
Jagex said: “These hats now play a pivotal role in the RuneScape economy as investments, cash allocations, collateral, and collectibles.” According to one RuneScape Wiki, Party Hats actually sells for more than 2.1 billion gold coins. This is only their listed price, because this is a single transaction limit of RuneScape’s Grand Exchange.
The new 2021 party hat is different from the 2001 party hat. These are golden party hats, while the original version is only available in white, blue, red, green, yellow and purple. The golden party hats will be a symbol of players participating in RuneScape’s 20th anniversary event, or something that can be traded, although they will not automatically be as valuable as the original. During the event, each player can only get one golden party hat, so they are still rare, but this time players are unlikely to throw their hats away.
To get a golden party hat, players must collect 8 golden party hat shards and have a valid RuneScape membership for $11 per month, which is less for players who commit to 12 months Premier Club membership. (Members can also purchase Bond, They are tradable in-game items, such as Plex from EVE Online. ) Some fragments are obtained by completing discrete tasks, such as completing the “Gielinor Past” anniversary task or buying one for 30 million gold coins. Others are random drops that occur when the player trains skills or engages in other activities.
Jagex stated that the “Doom Protection” system should prevent anyone who is actively playing RuneScape from being dropped their hats before the event ends on January 3.
“As you continue to train skills or complete the clue scroll, the probability of getting fragments increases exponentially,” the developer said. “In essence, our goal is to allow players who are actively participating in the competition to create their own hats without worrying about it.”
This has not stopped some players from trying to grind out the pieces and fall as quickly as possible, such as cooking thousands of swordfish in a morning.A different player in RuneScape Forum It is said that they killed “2000 Abyssal Demons” without seeing the battle shards falling, while another person reported that they received battle shards after six hours of fighting with the dark beasts. We all meet in different ways.
