I have been killing greater demons, red dragons, steel dragons, and more monsters that have the possibility of dropping hard clues, and not once have I gotten a third age armor, not once.

 

Instead I only get stuff worth less than 200K, which I am fine with, but for God's sakes, I have been a loyal subscriber for years so I deserve to get a 3rd age armor.

 

I pay every month, so I deserve to be awarded for that.

 

I'm not waiting around anymore. Stop screwing me over by not giving me the armor I want.

Man there is a reason why this armor despite having "low" stats is expensive. It's extremely rare. I know you might not like my advice, but if you want to get 3rd age, the best way would be to find your fastest cash earning method, and do that linearly until you have enough cash to buy it, rather than shooting your chance at the lottery over and over. Even some of the most famous clue scroll hunters here on TIF don't even have a full 3rd age set (from clues), if I recall correctly. But it's up to you...

I don't want it so I can keep it, I want it so I can make a bunch of cash by selling it.

If it were that easy, it would not be worth a lot of money.

Stop expecting third age from every clue.

 

(i've had two pieces of third age from clues. Hehe!)

There are a LOT of better ways to make money than by attempting to get 3a from clues. 3a has the level of rarity that, given that it comes from clue scrolls which are inconsistently obtained, you shouldn't expect it at all across your entire career of playing RS. Maybe if you opened up your playstyle a bit more you'd be able to explore some better options for making money  ;)

I don't expect it to be easy.

 

But I expect to get it eventually. Which never happened.

 

I'm sure I have done at least 1,000 by now, and still haven't gotten it.

...It's a 1 in 10,000 chance.

On a serious note, go do another 2000 hard clues, and you should hit the threshold for actually getting a 3rd age clue, as it's at least over 1 in 3000.

Also I don't think you deserve to get the rarest treasure trail rewards just because you pay for a monthly subscription.
They wouldn't really be rare if that was the case.

Like Witchy, I've also had 2 pieces of 3rd Age, however, I would suggest that I've also done considerably more clues than you & therefore by the law of averages I'm more likely to get a 'decent' reward in the end.

 

You have 2 options, keep doing clues & hope for some luck in the end, or quit & find another game that is more suited to your style of play.

so I deserve to be awarded for that.

 

I have a poster that hangs in my room. It says "Contrary to popular opinion, no one owes you anything. Earn it." I think this quote works quite well for situation. Stop complaining and actually put more work into it. Complaining gets you no where and no one really cares what you're complaining about. Long story short, suck it up, stop complaining, and if you don't like the way the game works, quit.

Decade of playing but i'm not sure if I passed the 10k mark yet although I do actively hunt then. That's hards since forever, since 3a release and since elites a couple of thousands. I had a log on old computer, ugh

 

I don't play anymore, logged intoday to 200m offer xD

Should you decide to log in, there is a Quick Chat option to check how many that you have completed. Or is that only scrolls that one has completed since they added it to Quick Chat, not sure...

Well last time I completed a trail I can remember I was informed I have completed thirty something trails.

 

I know for a fact that's inaccurate since I have been doing this since 2006, I have completed 1,000 at least.

Oh that's too bad, guess it would be kind of hard for them to do retroactively on the other hand though :P.

It's not that it's "inaccurate". The clue scroll counter was added to the game on November 17th 2014, it only counts clues completed since that date.

 

But do another 9,000 odd level 3 or elite clues, and then I think you can start complaining.

Clue scrolls were always meant literally to be the lottery of RS, so can't really complain that you aren't part of the 1 in million or whatever the odds are for it.
