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.

 

I get the point though, 3rd age armor isn't so great.

 

The only reason it's so expensive is because it's so rare.

Yes, precisely.

This is possibly my best rant on this message board.

 

And I'm saying this because it's the only rant I can think of where a lot of people actually like the first post of the thread.

 

I'm proud of this thread, I really am.

 

Sure there are some that might disagree, but for the most part, people understand my frustration which I'm happy about.

If it was more common you wouldn't want it since it would be about as useful as a black platebody (t) 

 

"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.

 

 

Because levels are near meaningless now adays so I'd expect money to be the main factor in deciding what gear you're using and theres plenty of welfare gear that has better stats that is by far easier to get than even the most common treasure trial items.

Good News Blaze,

 

I've been a member for over 10 years now (have cape to prove it) & do Clues at almost every opportunity I, like you, feel entitled to a good reward every now & again.

 

As mentioned earlier in the thread, I've already had 2 pieces of 3rd Age Armour, but that's not enough for me given I've paid my membership for years.

 

I must be due some 3rd Age Dye now, or at least a bit of druidic, but all Jagex gives me is this measily Barrows Dye - How dare they!!!

 

Come on Jagex sort this game out........................................

This post has been made with a huge amount of sarcasm contained & does not reflect my true views ;)

Bronze is also rare.. and dirt cheap.

It's not rare when practically anyone in the game can produce it :P.

How the heck is bronze rare?

 

All you need is mining copper and tin rocks and then make the bronze items you wanna make.

 

I have a feeling that maybe you were being sarcastic, but I'm sorry it wasn't funny.

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

 

part of the problem is.....Let's assume it's a one in 10K chance,  Even if you've done over 1,000 clues,  the next clue you do....your chances are one in 10K (or whatever the odds are), Rare as hens teeth, and we are all hopeful of third age.....but it's never worth betting on imho

And there is a damn good reason for that. It's beyond horrible, unless you are fighting something like goblins, bronze armor is not very useful.

Although I do feel for blaze, super rare content sucks for everyone. As a money maker its too rare to rely on and as a collector you can safely assume you will never get one.

 

 

I personally would prefer a guaranteed reward at a high number of clues. Such as every (insert big number here) of clues you talk to some random npc and they give you an item which if tradable is valuable depending on how many clues it takes to get it. The random drop content is kind of bad because it messes with human psychology of ...just one more time and I'll get it for sure...

 

 

Although I'm probably in the minority here, I think people only play for the high of gamblingscape be it from staking, pvm or any other content its in.

i always expect 200-250k from elites, anything else would be nice, but i just use them as a break from slayer personally. Even though i'll probs never get anything decent I still enjoy them.

Don't worry, I'm not expecting it anymore, in fact I'd be surprised if I ever got it.

 

So yeah I'm no longer pissed or anything like that. I'm ok with not getting an extremely rare award.

You can't expect handouts just paying to play this game. You are paying to PLAY it, not be given handouts. There are people who receive 3rd age on their first clue, and there are people who will never receive it. It's all luck.
