    I already suggested this in Discord, but I don't know if it's noted.

    Here are some numbers I got from counting on BBB Hidden-Street. The number is how many mobs drop a certain equipment type for that class The numbers are definitely not 100% accurate in terms of counting or the numbers Legends has:

    Warrior:
    Hat:
    143
    Overall: 79
    Top: 192
    Bottom: 147
    Shoe: 130
    Glove: 99

    Archer
    Hat:
    152
    Overall: 155
    Top: 97
    Bottom: 82
    Shoe: 110
    Glove: 108

    Mage:
    Hat:
    157
    Overall: 288
    Top: 25
    Bottom: 28
    Shoe: 131
    Glove: 105

    Thief:
    Hat:
    152
    Overall: 27
    Top: 244
    Bottom: 228
    Shoe: 116
    Glove: 111

    Pirate:
    Hat:
    59
    Overall: 57
    Top: -
    Bottom: -
    Shoe: 56
    Glove: 54

    As you can see, Pirate equipment drops about 2 to 5 times less compared to other classes. Do note that Pirates don't have any gender locked equips, but that would still make it 2-3 times less + the fact that shoes, gloves and hats aren't gender locked on any of the classes makes it that Pirate equipment is way rarer.

    How is this possible?:

    1. Pirates were added later to the game

    Pirates of course were added later in to the game, so equipment drops might have been a bit of an afterthought. More about this in my next point, which is:

    2. Pirate equips lack variety
    Pirates are the only class which does not have any top or bottom, gender locked equipment or equipment variants. All these factors combined make it so Pirate gear is uncommon to find in mobs.


    Did Nekson plan on making more pirate equipment?:
    In my definitely expert opinion, probably yes! Why do I think this? While Pirate equipment does not have any variety in colors and stats, all equipment specifically mentions the color the equip comes in. The only equipment which doesn't are the equips which do not have any other variants on any other classes like the 110 equipment set which was later added. If they planned on adding more later, this would also explain why there is a lack of Pirate equips in the mob drop table. But who knows, maybe not...

    My suggestion:
    I will split my suggestion in to two possibilities.

    1. Custom Pirate equipment variants
    Just like any other class, equips varying in color and stats would be a nice addition (in my opinion) to Legends. It would automatically increase the amount of Pirate equipment which is being dropped across every mob + it gives people more choice when it comes to equipment build and looks. This would obviously take a good amount of time to implement and might hurt the "nostalgic" aspect of Legends, though Legends definitely hasn't been a strict v62 server for a while (luckily, that would've gotten pretty stale after all these years).

    2. Putting existing equips in the drop table of more mobs
    The easiest solution. Putting Pirate equipment (of any level) in more mob drop tables would solve the 'problem' too.

    Thanks for reading, lmk what you think or have any additions. :^)

    I do think that would be logical, but making fully custom stuff instead of a color change or putting more of the existing items in the drop tables is probably a lot more work.
