3. 3rd Age Mage

The 3rd Age Robes require a minimum of level 65 magic and 30 defence to equip in OSRS. They provide bonuses higher than infinity but are inferior to Ahrim’s. Although, unlike Ahrim’s they do not degrade and have lower stats requirements to use. However, their rarity makes them disproportionately expensive in comparison to the bonuses they provide.

How to get 3rd Age Mage?

Pieces of the 3rd Age mage robes are obtained exclusively as super rare rewards from hard, elite and master clue scrolls. They are extremely rare and its not uncommon for players to do thousands of clue scroll completions without receiving any of these items.

4. Infinity Robes

The infinity robes are a low to mid tier set of magic robes. They can be equipped with a minimum of level 50 magic and 25 defence. They are mainly used by players who don’t yet have the required level for Ahrim’s or Ancestral. Similar to the 3rd Age robes they are often difficult and time consuming to obtain for the little time that they are used. For this reason ironmen may opt to just aim for Ahrims or Ancestral.

How to get Infinity Armour?

The Infinity Robes can be obtained exclusively from the Mage Training Arena minigame. To purchase the full set you will need 1,495 Telekinetic, 1,695 Alchemist, 14,700 Enchantment and 1,495 Graveyard points.
