I just realized that I have 5 clue scrolls in my bank.

 

Five times the standard  odds. :)

 

Or five in a million.

What? I thought you could only have one clue scroll at once?

I do think that has changed.

 

I recall in a recent YouTube video seeing someone with mutliple clue scrolls in their bank.

So, mind answering how :P? As to my knowledge you are able to get multiple clues as a drop but cannot pick up more than one. So either you are not explaining everything or it would sound like I am accusing you of something here...

Oh no, I only have 1 clue scroll... 

 

Maybe they changed it so people cant stockpile them. I didnt know that scrolls were a lottery thing... I wouldnt have ignored them...

 

So my bank lied to me I thinks ;)

You could never stockpile them (or at least that was the intention). I think this is because of old code which doesn't see those clues as different items if you would have more than one. Of course they can change it now, if they would want to.

Im pretty sure I had some easy scrolls while others were more difficult, thus they would use 1 bank space each.

 

Maybe this has been changed ? All my scrolls are missing.

You can only have one clue scroll at a time. The closest to having multiple is to drop your clue, get another from a monster, and alternate picking each one up.

Or maybe stack tons of caskets from fishing/MTK if they still give clue scrolls, as the runewikia doesn't mention it on the casket page but does on the easy clue scroll page.

I still am pretty pissed that I still haven't gotten 3rd age armor.

 

But you know what? I'm no longer even gonna expect it. It's obvious that the armor is super rare, otherwise it wouldn't be so expensive.

 

If this item was just rare I would have gotten it by now. But it's not, it's extremely rare, which is even rarer than rare.

 

The only thing I can do now is just deal with it.

 

It's gonna be tough to get over the fact that I will most likely NEVER get the 3rd age armor, but I'm gonna have to, so I'll try harder.

Getting it is even better when you don't expect it than when you expect it. :)

I guess if you bought 3rd age armor, you would want to keep it in the bank with a PIN number. Armadyl looks exactly the same however. Good luck with your scrolls :)

I get dragon platelegs/plateskirt every 300 steel dragon kills. I'm sorry about that.

3rd age isn't really values for its stats or its looks specifically but for its rarity and widespread appeal as a rare item to show off with.  If it was more common you wouldn't want it since it would be about as useful as a black platebody (t) and if it stays as rare as it is then you will (almost certainly) never get one in your RS career.  

 

But yeah I feel you, this type of content sucks. Goodluck with your clues in the future though.

"About as useful as black platebody (t)"? What are you talking about?

 

I did compare it to dragon platebody, and it does have higher armor bonus.

Yeah that is true, as it is T65 armor instead of dragon's T60, but most people have at least barrows/bandos which are both tier 70 and more useful.
