|Release||26 November 2007 (Update)|
|Examine||Grand Exchange set containing a coif, body, chaps and vambraces.|
Third-age ranger sets are made by exchanging a third-age range coif, third-age range top, third-age range legs, and third-age vambraces with a Grand Exchange clerk. The set's purpose is purely to save space and for use in the Grand Exchange. The whole set is rarely traded due to the rarity of each individual piece.
Currently, third age ranger sets are the most expensive ranged armour in RuneScape, ahead of pernix armour. Players wear this set to show their wealth rather than use in combat, as there are other ranged armours, such as royal dragonhide, that have equal or better stats, while also being much cheaper.
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 . However, a livestream with Mod Simon and James revealed the mechanics of Treasure Trail rewards in detail, 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.
