My patient is running out. I want to get 3rd age armor.

Recommended Posts

That was me ;)

 

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.

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. :)

If you think that's bad, I've never gotten a dragon equipment drop before. :P

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.

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.

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
