Grimy marrentill detail This article or section requires a cleanup in order to meet the RuneScape Wiki's quality standards.
Reason: Many of items listed aren't truly discontinued, and missing plenty of current discontinued items.
You can edit this page to improve it.

Discontinued items and holiday drops are items in-game that can no longer be obtained and therefore, their numbers are not increasing. However, some of these items can still be obtained through trading with other players.

It was suggested in a live video by Mod Mark that if a player with a large number of rares was banned, consideration would be given to reintroducing them into the game, possibly via the GE.

These items are now relatively few in number and are very expensive. Most of these items are holiday drops that were released years ago.

These rares are also a very important part of RuneScape's economy, many players work hard with skills to achieve a long-term goal of owning a rare and discontinued holiday item. For the most part rares either hold their value or grow, like that of a stock. In some special occasions, such as the "Unbalanced Trade Removal" update the price of rares will drop, but players can be certain that if they hold a rare long enough it will eventually be worth it because no more rares will ever enter the economy. Items such as Seismic wands and Ascension crossbows have high prices compared to other non-discontinued items, however it is possible to get more of them. In the case of tradeable holiday items, this is not a possible reason for the price to decrease, beside a change in the Grand Exchange supply and demand.

Holiday dropsEdit

Holiday drops are items that are received on certain holidays, such as Christmas or Easter. These items are also few in number and can become very expensive over the years. Holiday drops that are wieldable are often worn by players to either show their wealth, fashion, or to show how long they've played. Previously, holiday items were tradeable. However, to prevent players from holding onto the items and selling them for a small fortune, Jagex currently makes new holiday items un-tradeable except for the past years (The Scythe and Rubber Chicken are the only exceptions).

Before 22 December 2003Edit

When RuneScape Classic was still known as RuneScape, Jagex decided that they would drop items randomly across RuneScape on certain holidays.

On Easter, Halloween, and Christmas, Jagex would drop a certain item. For example, in December 2001 during Christmas, Jagex dropped 'Christmas Crackers'. These Christmas crackers could only be obtained during a certain day during December. When a player walked around RuneScape, they may have seen a Christmas cracker pop up out of nowhere on the ground nearby. This was how the items were dropped.

Originally dropped for fun, Jagex kept this going on for a few more years. An item would be dropped every Christmas, Halloween, and Easter. Unfortunately, players began to notice that these items could not be obtained any more unless they were bought from other players. Seeing this, players began to buy the holiday items low, and then sell them at an incredibly high price. This started the rise in the prices for holiday items. Players were also angry that they missed the drops. Players would complain to Jagex demanding that they redo the drop. Jagex decided to make the next few drops untradeable. However, this only enraged players even more.

Jagex, realising what was happening with the Christmas cracker, decided to stop holiday drops, as players were becoming too greedy. On 22 December 2003, Jagex put an announcement on RuneScape's main page, saying that they were ceasing holiday drops. From then on, tradeable items were no longer dropped on holidays.

After December 22, 2003Edit

A year passed and no holiday drop was made. However, on 21 December 2004, Jagex changed that. Santa Claus was placed in the game and gave a Yo-yo to players who talked to him (They were untradeable). After the Yo-yo, Jagex introduced tasks players had to complete to obtain the holiday item, starting with the Rubber chicken.

Replacing holiday itemsEdit

If you have lost your item or destroyed it, you may be able to get it back if it is non-tradeable. Ask Thessalia in the Varrock clothing store south-west of the main fountain for your Bunny ears or Scythe back and she will happily oblige. If you have lost your Zombie head, you can dig in the Lumbridge Swamp with a spade to obtain another. You can also get it back by talking to Diango. If you have lost a Marionette you can get another in a box near the entrance to the Christmas workshop of the Christmas 2005 event and Halloween 2006 event. All other such items can be obtained by speaking with Diango in the Draynor Marketplace. Diango will replace most non-tradeable holiday items. Some items appear twice, for example, the Yule log, mulled wine, scrambled eggs (items from the '08 Christmas Event) returned to all members during the 2012 Christmas event. They could be reobtained by barehanded catching and looting snow implings. In the 2013 Christmas event they could be obtain through opening Festive Crackers, purchased from Diango, and claimed for free at the Wizard Serving Tables.

June 6, 2012; The return of tradable raresEdit

For the first time since 2002, Jagex released a new tradable rare item into the game obtainable through the Squeal of Fortune, the Fish Mask. This was released in large quantities and is consequently the cheapest of all tradable rares. Since then, the Christmas Tree Hat, Crown of Seasons, Black Santa Hat and Cloak of Seasons have all been introduced as tradable holiday rares. While the Fish Mask, the Christmas Tree Hat, and the Crown and Cloak of Seasons could all be obtained on the Squeal of Fortune and were criticized as being "RWT Rares", the Black Santa Hat was released through a semi-novel mechanism which was not influenced by the spending of real-world money.

The Black Santa Hat was released in minimal quantities through a new version of the Christmas Cracker - the Festive Cracker (which was removed from the game at the end of the 2013 Christmas season). The cracker was obtained through the completion of daily tasks, the Festive Cryptic Clue Fest, and a few forum contests. The crackers were relatively easy to obtain but the chance of receiving the hat from a cracker was incredibly low and the total number of Black Santa Hats which were released into the game is believed to be extremely small, so much so that it is now worth more than the original red Santa Hat and is by far the most valuable of the new generation of tradable rares.

Shaded items can be traded.

Image Item name Description Still exists Release Date
Disk of returning Disk of returning Previously in RuneScape there was an area known as 'The Black Hole', where rule breakers were held. Normal players could visit this area by purchasing this disk for 10 gp. It could then be spun to return from The Black Hole. Yes 12 July 2001
Half full wine jug Half full wine jug Due to a change in the Cooking skill in the past, Wine was changed so it has 1 swig, not 2, only people with half jugs at the time of the change had these. Yes 4 January 2001
War ship War ship War ships were predecessors of playable toys from RuneScape Classic. They were rendered untradeable upon transition to RuneScape 2, and are considered amongst the rarest of items today. The war ship was once found in Glough's house in the Gnome Stronghold during The Grand Tree quest. It was only available on RuneScape Classic but some people kept them during the transition to RuneScape 2 and still have them in the current game. You can still get a warship on RuneScape Classic. Yes 12 December 2002
Snowballs Snowball During the 2006 Christmas event, players could pick up snowballs. They melted some time between 25 January and 17 February 2007. Snowballs can now be made and then thrown at people when shaking a Snow globe. Note however that this is just an emote and they cannot be given to others like a gnomeball. Also, the snowballs were re-released in the 2009 and the 2010 Christmas event. Yes, via Snowglobe. 18 December 2006
Unidentified herb Unidentified herb Prior to the herblore update in 2007, instead of 'cleaning' the herb you would 'identify' it. All unidentified herbs looked the same and had the same name, you would need a certain herblore level to identify the herb. These were replaced with 'grimy' and 'clean' herbs. In the bank, the herbs would be separated by type but still have the same name. This made it harder to sell and buy herbs because you could be selling guams and say you're selling ranarrs, for example, therefore making them a highly used scam item. No N/A
Ghost buster 500 Ghost Buster 500 During the 2006 Halloween event, players used a Ghost Buster 500 to defeat various ghosts that had taken up residence in Diango's workshop. Ammunition for the Ghost Buster was available in different colours that matched the types of ghosts. After defeating a certain amount of ghosts you could report back to Diango for your reward. The rewards can be found in the Halloween items section on this page. No 30 October 2006

After completing the main event, the player could do more tasks to receive chocolate eggs. They again melted. No 20 April 2002
Rabbit mould Rabbit mould In the 2007 Easter event, the Easter Bunny asked you to retrieve his Rabbit mould (which he used to make chocolate rabbits) for him. You had to attempt to retrieve it, whilst dodging Nigel, an angry, shovel wielding farmer. Once the event was over it was removed from the game. No 2 April 2007
Red sweets Sweets In Halloween 2005 there were children in Lumbridge asking for candy. You could obtain it by scaring the little kids with a zombie head. Once the event was over, the candy melted into chocolate dust, even if you had it in your bank. The candy was not tradeable and healed 30 LP. However, Purple Sweets are now available from Treasure Trails, and due to their ability to be stacked, are sometimes used in the Fight Caves. Purple:Yes, Others:No. 31 October 2004
SleepingBag Sleeping bag The sleeping bag was used with the fatigue system in RuneScape Classic. Since RuneScape 2 does not use fatigue, sleeping bags were removed. RSC only 27 May 2003
Shantay disclaimer Shantay Disclaimer The Shantay disclaimer is a basic item that used to be given to players when passing through the Shantay Pass. It is was a disclaimer, saying that no responsibility is taken if the player dies in the desert. It was always pretty much a useless item, and its only use was to abbreviate the guard chat by two clicks if you carried it through on a subsequent passage. This was replaced by the Shantay Pass which acts as payment to get through the pass. No 13 April 2003
Basket of eggs Basket of eggs In the 2005 Easter event players received a Basket of Eggs. The player would equip the basket and right click on a player then select "give egg". Once the player handed out enough chocolate eggs they would then go and talk to the Easter bunny to claim the rubber chicken as a reward. The baskets also gave the player a running-man animation. The baskets were removed from the game after 4 April. No 21 March 2005
Hatchet handle Woodcutting axe head and handle A random event was once in the game that caused a players' axe head to fly off the handle while woodcutting.

If a player had a head of an axe in their inventory, the handle would regrow. No N/A
Armadyl pendant Lathas' Amulet The Lathas' amulet is a now-discontinued quest item from the Plague City quest series. It was given out as part of the reward for Biohazard in RS-Classic. It was supposed to be a way to know if King Lathas had found a way west into the forests of Isafdar (The amulet's jewel would change from green to red when the Underground Pass quest was released). The player was then required to visit King Lathas for his or her next quest. Now a "random" event occurs to start Regicide. A messenger finds you and gives you a summons from King Lathas. Yes 23 October 2002
Odd cocktail 4 Odd Cuisine Before a significant update to the Gnome Restaurant activity on 7 August 2006, players could potentially ruin a dish by adding the wrong ingredients in the wrong order.

Broken plate Broken plate A few days after the 2005 April Fools' Day event, if you spun a spinning plate, you may drop it, and it would break into this.
