Get Your Golden Party Hat To Celebrate The End Of RuneScape's 20th Anniversary Festivities
Final anniversary quest and illustrated history book also available.
It's time to put on your Party Hat and celebrate the tail end of RuneScape's 20-year anniversary. Wait, you don't have a Party Hat? You mean you weren't playing in 2001 when the hats were given out as a reward for the game's first Christmas event and have never been offered since, which has caused them to be viewed as a status symbol and be worth billions of gold pieces?
Jagex is rectifying that oversight by making new Golden Party Hats available again in a new event, appropriately titled the Golden Party Hat Hunt. The event is available until January 3, after which Jagex says "they will never be available to earn again!" Uh-huh, that's what you said 20 years ago!
And no, we weren't exaggerating about the price. In 2015, an original Party Hat went for the maximum amount possible on the RuneScape Grand Exchange: 2.1 billion gold. The Grand Exchange itself has transformed into a "Golden Party Hat winter wonderland" for the duration of the event.
Also new to RuneScape today is the fourth and final installment of the anniversary quest, Once Upon A Time, which started in January and offered another party hat. Players can visit three locations that offer glimpses of the future, receiving all kinds of treasure for their efforts. And, if it's real-life treasure you crave, there are still copies of the 20th anniversary illustrated book available from Dark Horse for $39.99.
