The third age full helmet is a members-only piece of armour that is part of the Third age warrior set. To wear the helmet the player needs at least 65 Defence. To obtain a third age full helmet the player can either complete a Level 3 Treasure trail, trade with another player, or buy in the Grand Exchange.
It used to be the best non-degrading defensive helmet in the game until the release of Bandos helmet. Many players prefer a Helm of neitiznot for the prayer bonus or barrows helmets for defence (although those degrade in combat) over the third age full helmet, as they are 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.

Update history[edit | edit source]
- patch 28 July 2009 (Update):
- The skill guide now talks about Third Age items in a singular sense.
- Updated the model for Third Age armour to not stretch when doing various emotes or riding on a magic carpet.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- When the dragon full helm first came out, its stats beat the third age full helmet's original stats in each section. Jagex then updated the 3rd age full helmet, which is now slightly stronger than the dragon full helm.
- The Third Age full helmet closely resembles Ancient Greek Corinthian helmets. The only difference is that these helmets do not have the horsehair plume.
