Lol, I really hope this is for people who attend the Hallowe'en in-game party on the 29th October, not for RuneFest attendees :P 85.58.215.87 13:15, October 25, 2011 (UTC)

  • RAGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE*

OMFG JAGEX

Well.. I hope so too ^ I was looking forward to this the whole time. And only this :|

I hope they will give it to us eventually. LOLILIKECHEESE

Will the people that keep editing the article to say its been confirmed(when it hasn't) please stop. This Wiki is supposed to be correct and not full of assumed things.

Runefest[edit source]

I've seen it in game, the guy said he was at Runefest but was unclear about how exactly he got it. I disconnected and got stuck downloading the hourly Clusterfuck update before I could get any more info or a screenshot. 114.75.171.60 14:41, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

Just because somebody says they were at RuneFest(even if they cna prove it) and has the scythe that doesn't mean that the scythe is a RuneFest reward.

Just had word from one of the persons at RuneFest that talked to mod mmg irl that only ppl with the code can get one, so most likely it is a runefest-only reward. I will wait to put that on the article itself until it is oficially written somewhere. Sumurai8 15:23, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

First 25 people to hand in the correct answer at runefest got one, well thats what there saying in Mod MMG's friends chat.

Listing Players with the Scythe[edit source]

^ ~Getal

If you look over at the level 99 page, there are lots of names regarding who got the level achievements first. That said, there should be a list of players who got this golden scythe. These people may not have wanted their names put up, but they were anyway. The page is https://runescape.wiki/w/Level_99

  1. Immortalized
  2. Look Over He
  3. Castle Wars http://i40.tinypic.com/35012z9.png

EDIT: This forum post lists names of the players with the scythe.

How the Scythes were obtained. (thanks to Zaox)

It was a cross-convention sort of event. Where the people in-game have to solve questions to answer it to Fame, the answers being numbers. RuneFesters had to actually traverse the entire venue for letters, given clues on the sheet. Then once we had all 26. They matched with the numbers ingame. And we had to solve the sentence, which only had numbers, the letters filling in.
"Death might just reward your quick puzzling with exclusive benefits."

Only the first 25 to hand their completed sheets into the desk received the item code. It should be noted that each person had to write their RS Name, most likely to keep track of whom had it, to prevent RWT and to take approrpriate actions if someone ended up with it on their account.

If Jagex will provide a list of players with the items, okay. Otherwise, no. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 17:27, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
But Jagex never provided a list of player names for the page mentioned above... so technically that page about level 99 is not allowed either...
99.22.0.78 17:31, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
The hiscores are provided by Jagex which gave us that information. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 17:38, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
The avatar of the players I listed also provides the information. If you look at the avatars of those two players, you can see them wielding the golden scythe. Since that is as easily accessible as looking up a name (just as in the high scores), Jagex did in fact provide this information.
99.22.0.78 17:41, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
Show me the other 23. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 17:42, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
Not all of them are members, so not all have avatars. Also, we cannot see those who disable the avatar to the public. However, those who do show their avatars can be easily located because currently the person listed as 1 in my list has actually claimed many times that he/she has the scythe. Therefore, it is well known. The other 23 do not want this to be known, so they have chosen to either not show the scythe in their avatars or are nonmembers.
I'll just quote the policy:
The only reasons are that the player is:
  • Highly notable, such as Durial321's involvement with the Falador Massacre
  • Specifically mentioned by Jagex
  • First to reach level 99 in a skill (or level 120 in the case of Dungeoneering)
  • First to reach 200 million experience in a skill
RS:PDDA
Them having the item doesn't make them highly notable, and they're not specifically mentioned by Jagex. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 17:53, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
They have been enumerated by Jagex, since it is known how many of them there are. They are highly notable because if one ever wanted to get a picture of one's account with this person, one would need to know the name of said player. These 25 people are the only people who will ever possibly have a complete collection of collectible items.
99.22.0.78 17:57, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
Also, these people I mentioned chose to update their avatars to prove they had a scythe. Therefore, they implicitly allow themselves to become notable.
99.22.0.78 18:03, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
Jagex can say there is over 100k players, does that make them notable because Jagex gave us a number of how many there is? Some people would like to get pictures with people such as Elvis and Gertjaars, but that doesn't make them notable either. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 18:06, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
These 25 players are notable because the list of their names can easily be memorized. Since there are only two known for sure, it is even more notable. There are only 25 skills and several achievements. One can easily memorize these names, and most players know who these people are. There is a big difference between 25 people and 100000 people.
99.22.0.78 18:34, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
Because you can memorize something doesn't make it notable. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 18:36, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
Those two people don't have the Golden scythe. That is the 2003 Scythe. They are just forum trolls. *facepalm* Anonymous3 18:39, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
Well in that case, I guess they should be removed from the list. However, since this argument of whether the real 25 owners of the golden scythe should be published here, I think we need another person to arbitrate on this subjective matter.
99.22.0.78 18:52, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
Kay, I'll put my 2 cents. No. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 18:57, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
Immortalised doesn't have the golden scythe, he/she has just been trolling all over the forums boasting about his/her 2003 scythe and how people won't have a similar scythe.
81.158.113.2 19:55, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
My 2 cents: It's not worth keeping up with. Especially with name changes. Xhanort7 13:49, October 30, 2011 (UTC)
2 More people in my clan have THEM confirmed. Won't list names tho. don't wanna disclose that.. not worth it.. 2.96.230.95 02:43, October 31, 2011 (UTC)
I have 2 more names just in case this list does go out:
  • Two101
  • Stiyl Magnus
I know of 2 others but they haven't changed their forum avatars yet so they shall remain anonymous until they do so. --Two101 10:45, October 31, 2011 (UTC)
Hey guys. My suggestion would be using and linking to this RSOF page: "http://services.runescape.com/m=forum/c=8Pa1ZJNJk1E/forums.ws?14,15,68,63330368,goto,1" That way, only players who want their name published will show up. This thread has JMod posts, so its at least a little legit.

Giant maple seed on a stick[edit source]

I'm not fussed about this new item, I reckon it looks pretty foul. It reminds me of those helicopter seeds (maple seeds), but attached to a stick. Leave me a message :) Annarelda Hiscores 13:33, October 30, 2011 (UTC) Edit: corrected failed link

Jagex Controversies[edit source]

I'm going to ask that somebody put this item in the "Jagex Controversies" catagory, as I'd say it fits and its not in that catagory as of now. Thanks in advance to whoever does it.

The article needs an explanation about why it's controversial. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 01:42, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

The picture[edit source]

What's the guy in the picture wearing? just curious 72.78.26.35 04:37, December 1, 2011 (UTC)

Completionist cape, default pants, audience clothing top, default shoes, drakan's medallion. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 04:40, December 1, 2011 (UTC)
Actually, he has on Eastern trousers, not default trousers, but other than that, Fergie was dead on. [2] N7 Elite (Ready to talk now?) 04:45, December 1, 2011 (UTC)
