The below are the high alchemy values for each fremmenik armor piece.

Helmets
Rock-shell: 21,120
Skeletal: 6,000
Spined: 36,000

Torsos
Rock-shell: 39,000
Skeletal: 27,000
Spined: 4,680

Legs
Rock-shell: 38,400
Skeletal: 24,000
Spined: 2,340

Total
Rock-shell: 98,520
Skeletal: 57,000
Spined: 43,020


However,


All three pairs of gloves and boots: 390
Farseer, Archer, Warrior and Berserker helms: 46,800


Anyway I am just really confused why the numbers seem so arbitrary.

Every piece has the same drop rate from the Dagannoth Kings. (I presume that is the most common method of obtaining them)

The drop rates of the components to make each piece from the smaller dagannoths in the waterbirth dungeon are similarly consistent with one another.

I can't see any argument for making a set of Rock-shell alch for over double a set of Spined. Nor can I see why the Spined helm is randomly the highest alch priced helm.

So how about those alch values get normalized? Would be kinda nice when killing DKs if I could reliably know whether a given piece was worth alching rather than having to recall that Spined chaps are just worthless for no apparent reason.

I propose based on the amount of dagannoth hides used to craft them:

(not including berserker, farseer etc)
Helms: 10,000
Torsos: 30,000
Legs: 20,000

why do they have to be same price?

Well, why shouldn't they be the same price?

They are the same tier of gear.

They are made in the exact same way.

They involve exactly the same kind of materials.

I see only every reason for them to have the same alch value.

Is your argument that because Spined is somehow less demanded that it makes sense to have a lower alch value than rock-shell? That argument isn't used for literally any other alch price so why here why now.
