Wow so many names from the past in those posts! Started in 2002 myself. Memories! Wish I realised how expensive r2h's were at the time and pked for them more! My rs career would be so different haha.
You're telilng me. I wish I didn't sell my p hats and santa hats, I could have relogged on and sold them today for actual money. Sigh lol
I remember buying a santa hat for 50k and a week later selling it for 250k and how rich I was..... Whoops
I can top that. I gave away my collection of party hats to Krest. They were just clogging up my bank space, and not valuable at all at the time.. (well, under 10k anyway)
Heh. I've gotta say that I had a bit better luck with my p-hats. Many people don't seem to remember the time of great Dupe.
Altought I had p-hats from the original drop party I also got my slice from Kaitnieks "unofficial" drop party. Also I had a pleasure to know one of those guys who could use Autorune or some other software to dupe any items in the game. I remember a guy named Kossu giving me 3-4 full p-hat sets at that time. Many were banned at the time when a lot of duped items were found from their bank accounts. I was cunning like a fox and distributed those party hats to many account so the number wasn't so great in an individual bank account.
Of course all the fun shiet happened years after when Runescape got populated and amount of active players were multiplied like with 200x. I think I had like 6-8 phats left when friend told me that prices of phats had sky rocketed, lol. At that point a price for party hat varied between 100 - 500 million depending on the color. I remember making like 2000 millions(2billions) by selling the hats. Back then people paid 4-6EUR / million for the in-game money. That was a good income during my studies.
