Hello pirates and adminstrators!
Friendly ol' captain Kenneth here with a question for the Pirate101 team!
I've noticed items on the henchmen. That I haven't seen regularly.
(Ex. the 55 swashbuckler and the outfit he is wearing, same with the level 55 buccaneer)
So I have a question. Are some of the gear on these guys loot drops? if so. Can I ask which bosses drop them. Because those seem like appropriate items I would like one of my pirates to wear.
Thoughts/Answers to this?

I have not really been paying attention to the henchmen.
I did try one out the other day. Not bad. But a bit pricey.

I myself, also have a question.
Why do the henchmen start at 15, then to 25, then jump to 40, in their levels?

1) They correspond, more or less, to important world/chapter breaks (Skull Island, Cool Ranch, and Mooshu);

2) The classes get significant power boosts at 15, 25, and 40 (these are "double epic" levels);

3) Spreading out the levels allows us to create more meaningful distinctions in price vs. power.
