Treasures Drop Rarity For Certain Pieces
In every treasures event there are certain pieces that drop very rarely. They are also in high demand for collectors. This goes beyond RNG streakyness or one persons luck vs another in getting them to drop. This happens every single time. The top 2 on my server are bone helm & female plate breastplate. The point of the event is not to collect the items for show (that is a player thing) but to turn them in. So it should not matter one bit to the dev team to purposely make them rare. So devs, Why are they often so rare?
This is typical of my runs in the events (all treasures events to date). Currently in 1850 drops, I have 2 bone helms, zero female plate bp, zero female studded chest, 4 longswords, 2 halberds. I cannot keep track of how many shields, other plate pieces, etc that have dropped. 2 halberds are also a record for me this event. Now, Hythloth was a bit more generous on plate. I actually got 2 or 3 female plate bps - but I also had 2800+ drops.
These are the pieces I notice "missing" the most:
Bone helm - rare
Female plate breast plate - rare
Female studded leather armor - rare
Longswords - very uncommon
Halberds - very uncommon
