I'm not certain on this or saying this IS the reason, but purple originally was the rarest of the colors. It got less drops by a pretty large margin compared to the other colors and was only made the cheapest because people duplicated it more than any other color when the original glitch was happening. That paired with the fact that it seems to be a "better looking" color than green and yellow. It matches shadow dye nicely and isnt as toyish looking as the other two. Just ideas though...
It's simply manipulation. in regards to the above comment the dyes have been out for years and purple had always been the lowest, the dyes had no effect on the purple price in relation to the other prices partyhats and there currently is no other reason (use wise or cosmetic wise) for the purple to rise at such great percentages compared to other partyhats.
Also worth noting that green came out on top for 'favourite partyhat' on a thread in this very forum with over 180 or so votes just for green. Purple came in at 4th with 92 votes.
It proves the point that Partyhat prices are artificial. Thats why I decided to keep multiples of the lower hats instead of investing into red, whites or blues. This just shows that this order is fake and it can get rearranged at any moment over time just by pure manipulation with no announced updates or cosmetic upgrades. In the end, theyre all the same style of hat just in a different color. Its best to just stock up on lower hats.Check out the partyhat pull rarity rates on the official RS Wiki page for Christmas Cracker confirmed by a Jmod:
Blue (15/128) Green (20/128) Red (32/128) White (23/128) Yellow (28/128)

Gullibility + short memory = pump and dumper's dream
Before purples, it was RSH pump and dump (remember those threads about rsh going up forever?) Before RSH it was white phat. Before that red phat. Before that BSH. Before that disks. Before that pumpkins. Before that easter eggs. IT'S ALWAYS ONE RARE THAT BEING DRIVEN UP BEFORE GETTING DUMPED.
I'll bet you anything that once purples are done, another rare is going to get pumped. What's been going on with sof/th rares is now going on with main rares.
If I buy 100 RSH right now and move prices by a bit, I can find 50 noobs ready to buy in after me because I told them that red santa hats go up on Christmas. A few weeks later, I dump and the noobs come back crying. Rinse, repeat.If you are willing to chuck your most precious possessions like phats because someone said words like crashing/dying/quitting and then find yourself unable to rebuy for what you sold for, then you don't deserve to own a phat.
Notice how there's always a bunch of promotional threads from alts suggesting to people to buy into whatever is being pumped. Several months ago, there was a guy who actually asked on forums if this pumping and dumping was legal and because no one said it was illegal, he proceeded to do it and has been doing it ever since.
Frankly, it's fun for the hoarder to watch adolescents drive themselves crazy wondering WHY something is going up (and then crashing). They get so emotional and anxious. Maybe it's Jagex? Maybe it's new skill? Maybe it's dxp? Maybe it's Christmas? Maybe it's someone getting banned? Maybe more girls are playing RS and they like purple more?If you are willing to chuck your most precious possessions like phats because someone said words like crashing/dying/quitting and then find yourself unable to rebuy for what you sold for, then you don't deserve to own a phat.
more yikes threads being created wow.Mod Poerkie:
It's impossible to verify prices and therefor cannot guarantee what is being said on the forums is true. As a result we are making it clear that you shouldn't trust prices on the forums and should do your own research.
