|Examine||Grand Exchange set containing a body, legs, amulet and hat.|
The third-age mage set is made by exchanging a Third-age mage hat, Third-age robe top, Third-age robe, and Third-age amulet with a Grand Exchange clerk. The purpose of the set is purely to save space and for ease when trading with other players. You can exchange this set with a Grand Exchange clerk to receive the items listed above.
There have been questions from many players as to whether the power of the set justifies its extravagant price, as currently the Third-age mage set is the most expensive magic set in RuneScape.
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.
