Glitched Items vs. Rare Item Mondays

Hey Jammers, happy Monday! Although Mondays tend to be less happy than other days LOL

However, it's not just a regular Monday. It's a RARE ITEM Monday!!!


Yay! I'm not certain as to whether this is recolored or new, as it's vaguely familiar but I've never seen anyone wearing one. Hmm...

If you're new to the concept of Rare Item Mondays, you'll probably be a little disappointed to learn that no, AJHQ doesn't release stuff like Spiked Collars or Gazelle Horns at the beginning of every week. It's usually recolored versions of items such as the Rare Camo Jacket seen above. 

Despite the very clear and very gold RARE icon, Rare Item Mondays are typically not considered worth very much in trading. 

But then... why is it called a Rare Item Monday?

The widely agreed upon idea is that despite having the RARE logo, and despite having only been in stores for one day, they're just recolored items so they're not that rare.

At the same time, however, "glitched" items like Nerd Glasses with gold tape, glossy cupid wings, and certain turquoise rings are considered very rare. Technically, they're just recolored items themselves! So if it's not just difference in color, what makes Rare Item Mondays less rare?

AJHQ is seeing people going crazy over "glitched" items because A, they're noticeably different versions of an original item, and B, they're typically only available for a day or less. Put that together and boom! There's your everyday (everyweek?) Rare Item Monday!

My idea about why people see Rare Item Mondays and glitched items so differently goes like this: Whereas Rare Item Mondays are going to be available and openly advertised by AJHQ for a set 24 hours, "glitched" items have a different appeal to them. They're "mistakes" that happen when an item is released; AJHQ doesn't want you to have them. They're only around from a minute to half a day, and owning one shows that you were faster than AJHQ fixing the bug. Kinda like a trophy, ya know? :0

I know this whole post just seems kinda obvious, but I guess that's what happens when I overthink things. XD

See you in Jamaa! :D

    1. Aww, thank you! As of now there aren't author tryouts, but with all this homework I keep getting, I may need to have some! My friend from school is also an author, but alas, we both get the same homework load. XD

      Thanks for bringing this up! I'm gonna be thinking about it today. :)

  2. Great post! I personally like the RIMS. I don't see why people don't like them. Sometimes when I have them on trade and go to Jamaa Township and say, "Trade me please!", some people will tell me, "No one wants RIMS" I seriously don't get it! XD
