Third-Age Equipment in OSRS

The Third Age of Gielinor was a period of conflict and war. Zamorak had returned from banishment and had ascended to godhood, starting a war with other gods. Historians called the event that followed the God Wars, and it lasted throughout the age.

Of course, with all the conflict going around at the time, players can expect equipment from this age will be good. Though Third-Age equipment still gets outclassed by god equipment, they’re no slouch either. Melee equipment from this age is considered the rarest, and for Magic and Range users, sets ranked second-best and third-best respectively.

All these won’t degrade and provide pretty good defenses. Players can use them for a long time before replacing them with more expensive but better equipment. The exception is the melee set, as most would only use them as an expression of wealth.

One of the rarest and most valuable pieces of Third-Age equipment is the Third-Age Bow. It combines the range of a longbow with the speed of the shortbow. That means players using it can target enemies from farther away while peppering them with arrows as fast as a shortbow can. It’s useful for the Fight Caves, Inferno, and the Barbarian Assault mini-games.

Due to its rarity and usefulness, it matches the value of the Twisted Bow in the Grand Exchange. It’s a bow worth about a billion gold, and that’s a price most players won’t have on hand. As a result, some players might look to online sellers as a resource to buy a Third-Age bow.

Why Some Players Buy Third-Age Equipment

All Third-Age equipment comes from the harder (hard and above) tiers of Treasure Trails. That’s the only way to get them other than the GE. And even then, it’s not even a guarantee, as players can get various other loot or equipment other than what they wanted as the loot system is dependent upon RNG.

Also, even with guides and the solutions at hand, it still takes time to complete a trail. Clues can send players off to the farthest reaches of Gielinor. Traveling back and forth to follow the trail can take more time than expected.

By buying equipment from online sellers, some players feel that they save a lot of time over collecting scrolls and completing trails. Plus, they know what they’re getting and don’t have to worry or think about RNG.

Gamers who are considering getting involved in online trading should check out the game’s rules and policies first. They should then make an informed decision as to whether they want to buy or trade online.

  • Be sure to confirm the time to account for time zone differences
  • Confirm which Shard or Server the delivery is to take place in case your game world has more than one.
  • Never, under any circumstances, return gold, item, etc. to the delivery character if ever asked. In the event the seller asks you to, please take A screenshot and report this to PlayerAuctions Customer Support.

Option 2: In-game Mailbox delivery.

Some sellers will select the option to deliver gold or items directly to an in-game mailbox. This option is less popular for larger Games like WoW, but is still viable amongst other games. This option can be convenient for smaller orders because you do not need to coordinate time of delivery.
