Hi, after farming the Ark for the rings of Star Traveller (it is really a matter of luck, I got a total of 5 after a few lucky runs), I realized I have found only 1 Goggled Helmet and 1 pair of Automated Gloves. Maybe I should come back to the Ark to farm more, but where is their location? First floor maybe? Not the lower docks with radiations?

Also, I had a really hard time to find some good stuff as Assassin's Gauntlets (5% drop rate by Nightblades only) and the Assassin's Hood (10% drop rate by the bandits leader only).

Yes, the game may be completed even without these items, but they are very nice and it is a shame to never come across them! Imho, the Assassin's Gauntlets should have a higher drop rate and/or should be found in chests, on par as the Armor and Boots, while the Hood should be a 100% reward from the boss just like the poisonus longbow.

It's in the main deck

You can get assassin's gauntlets from a lady in quest dubious poetry (happens when you want 5,000 coins or a one night stand with lady leana)

IIf rare drops were too common, they wouldn't be rare drops.

We did the math at one point and figured out on average how many rare drops a person would get on the various types of playthroughs. It was pretty fair. You might not get every drop, or the drop you really want, but you get a lot of rare drops. There's a lot of stuff in the game.

But I get the frustration in trying to get that one item on your must-have list.

There is also no point in designing cool items if players can't find nor use them... Probably for you is fair, i hate grinding and for me is not. Another subjective matter i suppose
