I thought that this post would be a fantastic place to post the best gear that pirates have come across and where they found it/enjoy to grind for that desired piece of equipment.
Right now I'm a max level buck and don't know where to grind between Moo, Kane, and the Dreadnaught. What is your opinion of the best equipment i could have as well as other classes.

Great work Anecorbie, thanks for taking the time to type that!

Mr Anthony 99, 2017 is still a fairly knew year and there are no new updates for gear. The title is a bit of a misconception; it would be better to call it Best Gear rather than New Gear because there is none. But still, great idea for a post :) This will help many decide what gear they want to get/farm for :)

Well, the best new gear would be from the instances found in Valencia, because that's the only new gear there is. It's shiny and new, yes, but I would recommend only using one or two pieces to compliment what you already have, because the 'old' gear we have all come to know and love, is still the best around. For some classes this may be more true than for others. For every class, I still think a good foundation made up of Moo Tower gear is the way to go, especially for Witches. Those group shield items found in Valencia, however, seem pretty useful for Bucks and who doesn't love Firstmate's Boon? Bucklers and Muskets benefitted the least from the new content, in my opinion, but that's ok, because my set-up for these two classes would be almost impossible to beat. For example, my Musket still uses tried and true classics such as Santa Rana's hat and the Patch of Asterion's Ruin. Captain Blood's Jacket (pve) or the Fanatic's Hitatare (pvp) are still my choices for an outfit. As fancy as the new gear looks, no pirate should neglect to include a few shields and heals in their inventory, so things like the Centipede Shinguards,Trappers Charm and Southern Cross Gem are staple items in my backpack. I think that weaponry is the biggest advancement to come from the new content and for my Musket, I alternate between the Deathspitter and the Nefarious Orb :)
