Rares

The big thing. Rares. Are rares good or bad? Do they really pull jammers away from friendship and all the things Animal Jam is really about? Keep reading to find out!
First of all, rares are actually quite a big part of the game. I won´t deny it, I spend a lot of my time online trading.
Why are rares so important to some jammers? Some people say they just "look cool". Yes, most rares actually look awesome. Spike colars, founder hats, gloves, beta fountains, Zios sculptures... All this rares are a great addition to a den or outfit.
Although it is partly why most people like rares, looks are clearly not the only reason. I must admit I care about how rares look, but I also care about rares because they are rare. Yes, I spend time trying to find out what my items are worth and I like some items just because of the rarity.
Is that good? In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with caring about an item´s rarity just as long as you arent completely obsesed. I am not going to mention names, but I know some jammers who would surely quit if every item in AJ history was suddenly released.
Another example of total rare obsession is when people scam and hack to get rares, but luckily most people know how to keep rares in a moderate level and jam on. Here are some opinions:
"Rarea are really fun to collect and also look awesome!" Yes, rares are fun to collect as a hobby.
 "Rares are cool yet some people brag about them" Yes, its not bad if you sometimes show off about your rares but it gets annoying when someone spends all day braging.
And "I have a lot of them" an example of occasionally showing of about rares, which I must admit I sometimes do myself.
"I think they are very cool" I agree, rares are actually quite a big and fun part of Animal Jam, even though it´s not the most important one.
"Well... They are cool" Yes, rares are undoubtly cool. Some people are not very sure about what they think.
"They´re cool, but most of AJ is obsessed with them so it´s kind of breaking the relationship between jammers" Unfortunately this opinion is true. Some jammers go on AJ every afternoon and instead of spending a while with their budies, asking how was school and stuff they start to trade. I wouldn´t go on AJ if my buddies weren´t there.
"I think they are cool, but some people love them too much and will do anything to get them" Totally true, its not fun when jammers get so obsessed they hack and scam.
"ITS JUST PIXELS CALM DOWN PEOPLE" Yes, a good answer. Remember that even though they can be a lot of fun and cause tons of drama, rares are just pixels and just have fun with your buddies, with rares or without them and Jam On! :D
Comment your opinions, jammers!

  1. They are fun to collect. I do think that some jammers will go too far to get rares. I do like some rares based on how they look or memories of a friend. I think some jammers go too far for them. They are just pixels after all. They are fun to collect and are okay, as long as there is a balance. - xXRobinHoodXx

    2. Yes I agree rares ARE fun to collect, but sometimes people go over load and get obsessed with them. I don't have a single rare, and i don't care. I hang out with my friends instead of trading and trying to get a rare. I'm not obsessed with them I just think they are cool.

  3. Okay, I do like rares. But I think AJ has it all wrong...

    You know nr worns? Well, the rare ones are apparently worth less than the non rare ones. Doesn't make much sense, now does it?

    I like collecting rares. It's probably the main reason anyone ever plays this game. But the problem is, people want rare SO bad, they decide to scam.

    Yeah... I've decided that I prefer my claw machine ^.^

    1. Yes, its weird that rare worns are worth less. But its probably because they are more common.

  4. All these comments are right! People go CRAZY for rares. Sure I really like rares, but not THAT much. I go on AJ almost everyday. I trade people a lot. I also hang with my buddies. The main reason why I trade so much is because, I trade for things I actually like. Like, I wouldn't try trading like... 4 spiked collars or stuff like that for a founders golden hat thingy. (lol. And also. I don't even have any rare spikes and stuff like that XD) I loved the computer before and after it came out in stores. Not because it was beta. Just cause I REALLY liked it XD
    Most of the time, you might see me asking if theres and fashion shows! I love playing in fashion shows!It's sooooooo fun! =D

  6. The only thing appetizing for me now is my buddies. I like rare buddies because they're fun to trade with, but I'll happily buddy anybody nice. I might actually start to invest money to get rares through memberships and buying a LOT of gems, but I still think buddies are a TINY bit more important. I wouldn't scam or hack for rares. I do have access to three other accounts, but I would prefer to not ask their owners to trade me rares than grow my bond with them.

    1. Yes. Most rare people have been on AJ for quite a while and its fun to hear stories about how AJ used to be.

  8. Hmm...well, some of them do look cool, like NM Pirate Swords and gloves.

    Some look absolutely idiotic, like the Beta Eyeball Hat.

  9. There would be no fun part of animal jam without buddies, and if someone buddies you for rares then it's stupid and they shouldn't be real buddies.

    I do love my rares, and personally, it would be the end of the world without rares. Why? Because no one cares for unrare people, even if they're member.

    This whole world of Jamaa revolves around gems and rares now, buddies just becoming a "hobby". I enjoy playing with my buddies, but most of them have been trading, or not even paying attention to me anymore because they've got sucked up into rares. It's really just sad.

    1. Yes, it is sad. Its supposed to be buddies first, rares next.

  10. I think rares are a fun thing to collect and build up to, plus, as everyone says, they look nice - most of them :p

    But, again, there are a LOT of people who get over the top. EXTREMELY over the top.
    No offence to Julian2, but you know that video he made when fox hats came out? He was just yelling and saying everyone would quit if more rares came out, etc.
    And in a video BEFORE that, he was saying how fox hats were barely rare and really pathetic...

    So I'm just confused :3

    1. I agree with you Kinyonga. He uses his fame too much just to get over his obsession for rares. :P

    2. Julian2 just thinks he is the god of Jamaa. Now Mira might not agree. XD

      Delete
    3. And the fact that he practically hates all his fans, not all of them, but he yells at them for sending him stuff, trying to buddy him, overcrowding his dens, it seems like he doesn't appreciate the hard work and love his fans are trying to give him.

      Delete
  11. I have to admit. Everybody likes rares, but just on the outside. In the inside, they don't care about mere pixels: they care about friends, fun, adventure, so on. Then when your inside comes out and you start wanting rares even more, like Julian2 or somebody else, you start scamming, takign advantage or gullible jammers that are having real fun, and get rare, then MUHWAHAHAHAHA! But they end up with nothing but a bad reputation, everybody making bad rumors about them, and pixels.

    1. Totally right. I wonder why some jammers like Julian2 prefer having rares than friends and a good reputation.

  12. It's not just rares now. It's more like Slingshots, scary bat wings, jamaaliday scarves, freedom wings, nm swords, and more

    My opinion of rares:

    "Rares are a major part of Animal Jam, but people scam them and it's not fair for other kind Jammers! I actually saw a wolf get scammed in WootMoo's den. No kidding! We should STOP scammers and keep our rares safe!"

  18. My sister is truly obessed with rares. When I got a rare bow and arrows, she was so jealous that she entered and stole it! Fortunately, she gave it to me back.

So, all of you know what comments you shouldn´t do, but here´s a reminder:
1- No comments on unappropiate subjects. Remember there are jammers of all ages looking at this.
2- You can advertise your blog if you want, I have no problem with it.
3- Only visit the blog if you like it. (What is the point in visiting it otherwise?)
