- For a brief period of five days, ranger gloves saw a sharp increase in price and trade volume as a result of the gloves being planned to be used as a component in creating vampyrium vambraces, a potential reward from the Theatre of Blood.

- During this period between 7 March 2018 and 12 March 2018, units of ranger gloves were sold for as much as 19 million coins, ten times the gloves' normal price. Trade volume for the gloves was as high as 2,179 units during this period, more than 8 times the gloves' normal volume. As a result of player feedback, ranger gloves were removed as a requirement for creating the vambraces, and the vambraces were polled to be dropped as a standalone item.
