Finally completed the Deity Statue set yesterday (Ball Cap for Nathan Drake).
Now, I need only one treasure for the Artifact and Antiquity sets to get those respective trophies. Frankly, I'd pretty much given up hope and it was extremely frustrating because the last handful treasures I needed were all co-op and I play that mode in about 95% of my matches.
It's been months since I'd gotten a new co-op treasure (if you don't count the Skull Bead for Doughnut Drake - gotten on Monastery Hard, by the way) and I was beginning to resign myself to never completing those sets and getting the trophies.
So..I will keep playing and hoping that eventually, Salim will have goggles, Talbot will be a cowboy and I will have two more trophies!

Good idea. Thanks. I don't play Hunter that much because it's too much like competitive (with the accompanying lag frustration) but I guess I'll have to get over it.

I guess the approach to take is to keep playing (as Nanashi707 suggested). I prefer co-op and will keep playing regardless. My frustration stemmed from some friends having completed many sets I didn't have with a lot less co-op under their belts. For example, one friend needs only 4 treasures now but has played about one quarter as much as me.
That Rare Treasure Weekend was a bust for me too though...no new treasures. I'm just gonna take a laid back attitude and if it happens, great. If not, at least I'll have the gaming experience with my friends.

I need 1 treasure for Ramses' hat.
I need 1 treasure for Skelzor.
Haven't seen them all my life, and think I never will...
although on the bright side, I played 1 game of classic and got both Eddy's AK and Marlowe's para 9. I run to 3TDM with my friend to try them out and in 1 game I also get Drake's AK. I shouted out loud on my mic and giggled so hard, that the opponents were like "huh????"

It's a grind, isn't it? Took me over 1 year to complete all Co-Op sets, and I play mostly Co-Op. I think completing all sets for Co-Op is the exception, not the rule. Took me 4-5 months to get my last 2 treasures.
In addition to playing Hunter, you may also want to inquire as to whether anyone you have on your friends list IS MISSING THE EXACT SAME ITEMS YOU ARE. If so, play with that person. For BOTH of my last two treasures I was playing with someone I rarely played with on my friends list, but they were missing the exact treaures I needed. One popped up on Chateau and the last one showed on Facility. Don't underestimate playing with people who need THE SAME PIECES.
Good luck and happy hunting!

that's really interesting, the way I always saw it was the opposite: play with someone who already has the treasure you are looking for. It's a duplicate for them so it should be more likely to pop up in general.
For instance, I was playing with a certain Coop vet, for the first time we played Arena together. He picked up a treasure and rejoiced that he was looking for it for a very long time. I on the other hand already had that treasure, it's been quite a pesky drop for some time. Not important, but I think it was the Priceless Tibetan set.
Keep in mind though that I haven't played a whole lot of Coop, so maybe my experience isn't as valid.

I remember when I unlocked Cat ears for Elena from the ARENA! What's even more funny is that I was splitscreening all by myself! I was just trying to level up boosters (It was around the time Ali had his Co-op Tourney) and around half way through round 1, it popped up.
I first though that "2/2? Another already completed set". After the game I checked unlocks tab and there it was.
Map was Oasis.
I still got one Relic set (or two, can't remember) to complete and all the Co-op Adventure artifact sets (except the one you unlock in Borneo), and some Arena/Hunter sets.
