Cutlass drop rate incorrect

Umm... The cutlass drop rate CAN NOT be right. I have gotten around twenty cutlasses, and only two discount cards and no lucky coins or coin guns. — Preceding unsigned comment added by at 22:02, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

According to the page, cutlasses are 10x more common than discount cards, 20x more common than lucky coins, and 40x more common than coin guns. Only thing you've shown from your stats are that cutlasses are indeed 10x more likely to drop than discount cards. -- 23:06, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
Derp, I read it as 1 in 2000 instead of 1 in 200. — Preceding unsigned comment added by at 23:12, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Not listed as PC only

It seems this is PC Only Content, but isn't listed as such... 10:59, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

Me and a friend were playing terraria on our xbox 360 then we saw "Pirates are approaching from the west!" so it's not exclusive to pc. — Preceding unsigned comment added by at 20:39, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

More golden item drops

There seems to be more golden item drops from the pirates since the latest patch. there is at least a golden grandfather clock.-- 17:29, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Have you actually seen the Golden Grandfather Clock drop or is that an assumption based on the images in the 1.2.3. content? AFAIK it is unobtainable. -- 05:28, 23 February 2014 (UTC)
Actually I just saw added to the wiki, I had no idea it was actually unobtainable.-- 18:16, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

Pirate Invasion spawns at an NPC town rather than the center of the map. (?)

From what I've seen, I think they've changed the way where the invasion happens. Instead of them spawning in the center of the map, they now spawn where your NPC town is at. I've built a small town near the Ocean biome and when I summoned the invasion, they seem to invade the town rather than the center of the map. May need someone to test this out to be sure this is true. NyanTarts (talk) 22:38, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Drop tables incomplete

Golden Sofa and Pirate Staff need added to the drop tables... idk the chance of either but I got a sofa and minions page says the staff is added. — Preceding unsigned comment added by at 05:44, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Mechanical Worm?

Just got a mechanical worm from one of the pirates I believe, was fighting the invasion in a snow biome before any hardmode boss has been defeated (Purpose of farming for an Ice Biome Key mold), is this a bug? Or is it simply a rare occurrence? It just seems rather odd is all x3 — Preceding unsigned comment added by at 04:14, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Mechanical Worms have a chance of dropping from any enemy in Hardmode before the Destroyer has been defeated. It's a feature that was added in 1.2 to encourage people to fight the Hardmode bosses earlier. --KM100 (talk) 14:36, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Effects of having NPC near spawn

if you have NPC near your location / spawn , where the pirate will swarm to. have anyone tested it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Akbbxsw (talkcontribs) at 10:19, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

because of it saying that the sun rises from the "west" rather then the west in terraria made me feel that its saying the sun always is from the east but thats actually false as on some planets like venus that rotate clockwise rather than counter clockwise like the earth and that means its west where the rising happens not the east and more at the website i cant link to cause my account is apperently new or something and i cant msg an admin cause i dont know who is or isnt one.... ima add a reply to this once i can and if i remember and the sunrise thing is more to everywhere saying that the "west" not the west....

Suggested split for "pirates"

I don't think it's really necessary, the pirates are not especially distinctive as a group, nor complicated, and they don't appear outside their event. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 23:17, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

What are the chances of having 2 pirate invasions in a row?!

I'm not the best at math and I'm also 11 so someone that's decent at math, what are the chances of having 2 pirate invasions in a row? And if you can, tell me the formula.

Armor recommendations?

What level of armor is needed to defeat the invasion? Is cobalt/palladium enough or do I need a higher-level armor to survive? 07:21, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

cobalt/palladium may be enough but i strongly recommend mythril or better — Preceding unsigned comment added by at 20:41, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

Ranting about my frustration about this

i asked my brother (who beat terraria once) if I should summon a pirate invasion because i got a map from a blood moon. He told me it was easy, so I summoned it. It was not easy at all. 4 of my NPC died, including my Zoologist (not really important), Stylist (also not important), Clothier (ALSO not important), but my DRYAD DIED. So know I can't do anything against the corruption until she comes back. Aparantly he said it was easy because he played with friends, while I am playing solo. Why does hardmode have to be so hard?

Wrong Old-Gen Console Music

The music that is listed for the Old-Gen Console version is Queen Bee/Boss 5, when it should be Golem/Boss 4. Aqua4356 (talk) 21:29, 12 February 2023 (UTC)

It is the right music track Cytra (talk) 20:31, 13 February 2023 (UTC)
Late to respond, but that is because I edited it shortly after pointing that out to the correct music track. Aqua4356 (talk) 22:09, 1 March 2023 (UTC)
