Are you sure these numbers are for percentage of armor drops? Why are there per level numbers? I'm thinking these numbers could affect the actual strength of different kinds of armor, since I don't see that specified in the specific item files. Wouldn't want cloth to be stronger than plate...

You might be right -- that might explain why not only I was finding more drops of these types but also better armor itself. Pish. RTFM? Where's the M?

Yeah those numbers are controlling the actual armor that each armor piece provides. If you want to change the drop rates you will need to go into all of the individual types like Database/Items/beltsPlate.gdb and change the SpawnChance value. If it doesn't have a SpawnChance line in the base entry then it defaults to 1.0 I believe.

Saw a kick ass BOW for once in my life and had it bought out from under my nose by an NPC... WTH!?!? Not impressed.
Kill him and take it back. You can use it better than he can. It's justifiable homicide.

Or is dead-NPC loot still random?

I would support rarer chain and plate, provided chain and plate gave much better defensive value in terms of armor, plate especially. I'd also lower the STR requirements a little bit.

I dunno, but I will now try it. Cause it JUST happened again!!!!!!

I just had another NPC pick up a bloody (artifact) reward GIVEN to me, by said same NPC.

Justifiable homocide, for sure. Damn indian giver.

I think NPCs shouldn't be able to take/buy/steal anything over a GREEN item. But that's my two cents.

Hell, in some countries, they gimp you for that!!! (which is now going to happen to him... brb)


*************************

EDIT. NPC drops are random. I did not get my gift back, took a reputation hit BUT got the satisfation that she won't steal from me again. MWHAHAhahaha.
*cough* Sorry. Dunno where that came from.
