Item History - Elf Bracelets

Elf Bracelets are leg items that were first released in beta for only 45 gems
They were sold in Jam Mart Clothing, the only clothing stone in beta

These were only available in four different colors

When trading came out in March of 2011, Elf Bracelets were very popular among traders. Most players referred to them as "elf cuffs" or just "cuffs"

At the time these were popular items, there were very few Leg Items even in the game. That could be one of the reasons they were so popular - there weren't many other options. If I remember correctly, the only leg items in 2011 were Leg Armor, Elf Bracelets, Freedom Bands, Flower Bracelet, and the four types of member gloves

Towards the end of 2011, unreleased colors of Elf Bracelets started mysteriously appearing (it wasn't just elf bracelets either, there were unreleased colors of a lot of items floating around)

Someone had green ones and someone else had teal ones
This was the actual picture I took of the mysterious unreleased teal elf bracelets (Of course they've since been released but they weren't at the time)

Sizzlerat also had the teal elf bracelets
(but that's not that surprising since she's an AJHQ person lady)

The blue and green cuffs were one of a kind (unless you count sizzle's) so a lot of the big traders really wanted them
when they came back unknown date there was glitch

On January 5th of 2012, Elf Bracelets finally made a return in Jam Mart Clothing
They even had the nerve to raise the price of them to 250 gems

They were released in 4 new colors (red, grey, and the two ones we already knew about, green and teal) They also changed the default color of them to the previously unreleased teal (It was tan in beta)

As always, when rare items come back to stores, their popular dies down a lot because people think they have to wear the rarest stuff to be cool so most people ditched their elf bracelets. Those poor inanimate objects :(

However, Elf Bracelets were a special case. They still stayed popular for a little while longer than most items get to. For one thing, people loved the new colors they were available in. But the main reason they stayed popular was because of a mistake

It was discovered that 2 of the 8 colors you could change the bracelets to were exactly the same. They were both the new grey ones

The extra grey one replaced one of the original colors in the shop - the purplish ones


 The purple ones stayed rare like they've always been. Because of this, a lot of people wanted them
People considered them to be special items like the "beta" old blanket. That was until AJ finally fixed the bug. I don't know exactly when they fixed it but I remember them taking quite a few biweekly updates to finally get around to fixing it

Their popularity started to die out. That was until they were put on Clearance on March 15 2012

They became slightly more popular because of this. Not nearly as popular as they were after beta, but at least it was something

But then the March 29 2012 update happened. This update introduced the Horses Only Party. I bet you can guess what item got sold there


That's right, Elf Bracelets came back even though they were just on clearance. Unicorn Horns and Angel Wings were on clearance at the same time Elf Bracelets were too, and both also came back at the Horses Only Party

They've all been available there since that day, destroying any hope of them ever being popular again
Oh yeah, and now they are in eagle quest too

I still see people wearing them from time to time, but not as often as I used to see them (so they are technically rarer than they used to be but they are also still available to buy, so...)

Not many people call them cuffs anymore either
I got called an idiot in the town recently because I asked if anyone had grey elf cuffs 
While me being an idiot might not be false, I still find it funny how things change. At one point it's dumb if you say elf bracelets instead of elf cuffs, and now it's the opposite
