In the past few years, the price of Rune God Armor has dwindled, as has the demand. One of the unique benefits of the armor was its minute prayer bonus. Now with the new update, Rune God Armor's prayer bonus is vastly overshadowed by the benefits of fully upgrading standard Rune armor to +3 quality. There is very little incentive for players to use their once-prized armor now. I believe that it would be wise to give Rune God Armor the same statistical bonuses as +3 armor, or allow it to be upgraded the same manner normal armor is upgraded. This would allow players who previously spent their millions of gold pieces on now worthless armor to feel better, as well as being a balanced and wise developmental decision. Additionally, this change would be extremely easy to implement. The aforementioned changes should apply for all tiers of trimmed/decorated armor.

Having the treasure trails armours be upgradeable does seem like an interesting idea, especially if for the upgrade you need to use 2 pieces of the same armour (e.g. rune zammy plate + rune zammy plate = rune zammy plate +1), but what about making the trimms/decorations/blessings be their separate items and only use them when you have the armour you want? (e.g. use saradomins blessing on rune platebody +5 to make saradomins platebody +5) Although that would mean having to make some changes to ge and more importantly poh's armour case.

No sane player would do either solution. It's easier to simply have it at its maximum tier.

Also agree. Having it naturally have the status of +3 would increase the street price and make it a worthwhile treasure trail find again; but at the very least, please just make it augmentable with rune bars just like standard rune armor?

Even during the mine & smith beta's there was posts made by players about the clue scroll armor's being inferior to rune +3 sets yet seemed to be ignored by jagex.

I also agree with Rikornak, but not just the god rune sets but rune (t), (g) and h1-5 sets should all be ugraded to the stats of rune +3 but prehaps also give them some set bonus like (t) set = tier 1 luck, (g) = tier 2 luck, (tier 1 in f2p) where as the H sets mite have a small hp boost & god sets keeps, small prayer boost increase
