A Third age melee set.

Third age melee set is an item obtained by exchanging a set of items with a Grand Exchange clerk via their right-click "Sets" option and clicking on the appropriate item set within the Item Sets interface. Sets are commonly used to reduce the amount of bank space taken up.

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 [1]. However, a livestream with Mod Simon and James revealed the mechanics of Treasure Trail rewards in detail[2], 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.
