The third-age robe is a member's only piece of magic armour that is part of the Third-age mage set. To wear it, the player needs at least level 65 Defence and level 65 Magic. To obtain the Third-age robe, the player can either complete level 3 Treasure Trails for a chance at receiving it, trade with another player, or buy it at the Grand Exchange. The Third age Robes Exterior look was changed on 7 November 2010.
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.
