Blue partyhat detail
Blue partyhat chathead

Blue partyhats are discontinued holiday items that players obtained by opening Christmas crackers that were dropped as part of the 2001 Christmas event.

The blue partyhat plays a small but intriguing part of the Wise Old Man storyline. According to Draynor bank's surveillance tapes, the Wise Old Man killed Elfinlocks and stole the blue partyhat from her ashes while he was robbing the bank. Before Love Story, he wears the partyhat on his head. After the quest, he lends it to Zenevivia, who now lives in his Draynor house with him. The blue partyhat is often worn by very rich players as a sign of extreme wealth. They rose considerably in price with the introduction of free trade again in February 2011. Blue partyhats are currently the most expensive item on the Grand Exchange, but the second most expensive on the street, being surpassed only by the Christmas Cracker which is never traded on the Grand Exchange due to its value being placed much higher than the Grand Exchange can accept.

15 Days of ChristmasEdit

During the 15 Days of Christmas in 2013, this item, along with other christmas-themed equipment, were given the Hybrid style of combat, and stats that scaled with the player's levels. This was so players could use these items in combat to assist in hunting for festive crackers during the event.

TriviaEdit

Well of Goodwill

  • The Wise Old Man, Zenevivia, and Elfinlocks are the only NPCs that wear this hat.
  • During the Swan Song quest, the player will ask the Wise Old Man for the blue partyhat at the end of the quest as a reward; however, he refuses. You can ask him again after the Love Story quest, although he will refuse, as he has already lent it to Zenevivia.
  • Along with the red partyhat, this item was the first item to pass the 1 billion mark on the Grand Exchange on 3 March 2011.
  • Although the purple partyhat is the rarest to get from a christmas cracker, the item duplication glitch caused its price to drop such that it is now the cheapest partyhat. The blue partyhat, which is the second rarest to receive from a cracker, is now the most expensive.
  • The blue partyhat's rarity and high street price is partly because of its status. Players will often buy the cheapest partyhat and upgrade to more expensive partyhats until they have the blue partyhat. This puts the lower partyhats back into circulation when players sell them to upgrade to a more expensive one. However, players that obtain blue partyhats will often keep them for good, taking them out of circulation and hence decreasing the volume traded.
  • Glitch abusers at one point could actually get themselves into the Draynor surveillance tape cutscene, and take the blue partyhat that was dropped during the cutscene. However, this item appeared to have a different item ID than the real blue partyhat and was untradeable. Also, upon trying to equip the item, it would disappear from the player's inventory. A message would then appear in the chatbox saying, "Please send in a bug report and tell Jagex how you got that hat."[source needed]
  • This item, the White Partyhat and the Christmas cracker are currently the only items which reached a GrandExchange value of 2,147,483,647 (the maximum amount a 32-bit signed integer can hold).
  • A blue partyhat can be seen on the roof of the Well of Goodwill.
