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 second best non-degradable platebody in the game, only beaten by the Bandos chestplate which grants both a prayer and strength bonus. 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 . More recently, however, Mod John C confirmed that the chance of receiving a specific piece of third-age armour from a Treasure Trail is 1 in 42,000.
