The Scythe was the last holiday item in Runescape Classic that was dropped around Gielinor during the 2003 Halloween event. Like the bunny ears, it is an untradeable item. Players who originally owned a Scythe and have lost it can get another by talking to Thessalia in Varrock. Casting telekinetic grab on this item is unsuccessful, and results in the following message being displayed: I can't use telekinetic grab on this object
History[edit | edit source]
Due to complaints by players who did not receive scythes, Jagex re-dropped them a few days later on the 2nd November 2003 (Update). A large number of them were dropped near the Al-Kharid mine area. After this drop, Jagex stopped releasing holiday items as drops due to the controversy among players. It was the very last item added into RuneScape before Jagex released RuneScape 2.
A player equipped with a Scythe.
