Third-age platebody detail

The Third-age platebody is a members-only piece of armour that is part of the Third age warrior set. To wear any component of the set a player needs at least 65 Defence. To obtain a third age platebody the player can either complete a hard Treasure trail, trade with another player or buy it from the Grand Exchange.

It is currently the third best non-degradable platebody in the game, beaten by the Bandos chestplate which grants both a prayer and strength bonus, and the Anima Core Body of Zaros. Due to it being inferior to a significantly less expensive armour, it is most commonly worn to show wealth.

It was long thought that the chances of obtaining a piece of third-age armour was of about 1 in 10,000 (according to Paul Gower), and in 2010 Mod Maylea stated that the odds are lower than 1 in 100,000 [1]. However, a livestream with Mod Simon and James revealed the mechanics of Treasure Trail rewards in detail[2], meaning the actual chances could be calculated: approximately 1 in 16,896 per item roll for any of the 12 parts of third-age equipment, or approximately 1 in 202,752 for a specific part, per item roll - with an average of 5 item rewards per Trail, this gives approximately 1 in 3,380 for any part, or 1 in 40,551 for a specific part, per Trail completed. For a more detailed breakdown of drop mechanics and calculations, see Treasure Trails/Rewards#Hard.
