  1. Bilge Dice - Lucky Streak!
  2. Retired rare avatars (TCGs, Mystery Island plot / Volcano Faerie, first Darigan vs. Meridell war avatars)
  3. Caption Contest - Funny
  4. Stamp Collector avatars
  5. NT avatars (Neopian Times Star / Neopian Times Writer)
  6. Neoboard Avatar Collector
  7. rest

 

 

I agree with this.

The retired rare avatars are really nice and good-looking.

 This.

These avatars all require spending loads of NP, working very hard, or a lot of patience, or to be a neopets dinosaur.

Probably the stamp avatars, as well as the very old plot avatars. I was around back then and I don't even have them q:
I don't find the HT ones to be that impressive; they seem kind of snobby to me q:

Collector avatars and contest avatars. They both require the user to actually put effort in :)

Go to an avatar site -> Check which ones are owned by the least % -> Done

I love the old war avatars. The meridell one is probably my favorite. I lost my main account a few years back that had all of the war avatars, wars I participated in and for the most part did pretty well in. Golly, I miss those days. 

 

With that being said, they aren't necessarily a status symbol as they mostly mark account age.

 

I've always been a fan of the Suap avatar. It's becoming much more common nowadays though, but truthfully I've always loved the LD stamp avatar. I've only seen it used a couple of times and I was jealous.

I feel like stamps are the most prestigious, there's some SERIOUS money devotion and no return on investment, so it's literally thrown away nps....

One of the few avatars I really consider "Prestigious" is the Neopian Times x10 Avatar. Unlike other avatars that require luck or money, this one really takes genuine and consistent effort (in the case of creating the entries or finding people who make them).

 

I actually came here to post that, If that isn't a status symbol I have no idea what is.

Free Jhuidah is the most prestigious for me. You were active and around years ago to have it.

Stamps are hard to get, but given enough money they're achievable. The hardest ones available these days are caption contest and neopian times, I'd say.

Bilge dice can be brute forced... that program has been made countless times.

Aside from what everyone's said about stamp/nt/bilge dice avatars, i think the ones that required you to actually attend the TCG tournaments are pretty rare too

Ohhh, the random contest one. 

NT, caption contest.

Ones that you can't really cheat your way through.

I guess it will only be a matter of time before they start mass releasing retired items

True, some one hired me on oDesk for 300 galaxy bucks to craft 15 entries just to get this avie, to bad I am too lazy to do it for myself :/

I definitely think there is some desirableness in retireds because you can't really get some of them besides what you can get from the Coincidence.

Then again, lucky streak has evaded me and getting into the NT x 10 is craziness.

There's a guy who trolls the neoboards with his Free Jhuidah avatar that he got from the coincidence on a young account. It's actually hilarious... he had a fight club quote on his profile and I neomailed him about it and he didn't even know what fight club is. hahaha it's quite funny to see him piss people off on the avatar boards or any in general. People get their panties in a knot over NP.

 

I will say, I always loved my maraqua avatars... I know they're nothing special but that was my favourite plot when I was a kid.

So it is now possible to get avatars from the RE machine? or was that from the first day

have not been doing the daily.

 

The maraqua avatars are nice

but the contests, NT and the lucky streak is the really unobtainable

and it is not retired...haiz

I know some people got old/retired stamps as well as retired avatars from the RE machine -- at least at first. No idea if TNT has put a stop to that, but I remember it pissed a lot of people off.

 

As a stamp collector, I greatly admire anyone who can complete any relevant page of their stamp album for one of those avatars. Haunted Woods and Mystery Island are my favorites.

Unless something has changed, TNT suspended the avatar awards from The Coincidence. Too many people caused an uproar over it.

Nobody's mentioned the Dice-A-Roo jackpot avatar yet? Seriously? That thing is harder to get than the lucky streak.

 

I dont think so. I play Dice-a-roo until my pet gets bored daily and Ive see the jackpot twice over the course of a month. Theres even an autoplayer for it, so for me I's say it's no different than the Hagan/Skarl avvies.

Yeah, I think that with the RE machine, the retired avvies are back in the running, and those would seem to be the most prestigious avvies to date.

Ones like stamp avatars, lucky streak, and certain retired ones like the Free Jhuidah one.
