The Witchdoctor is 1 of the 5 player classes in Pirate 101 and it is not unlike a wizard and /or mage in games like Everquest II and World of Warcraft.
Witchdoctors are masters of the arcane, using the powers of hoodoo to rig the outcome of combat. While weak in a direct fight, Witchdoctors never fight fair – hexes that weaken foes, blasts of fire that strike at range, and summoned spirit allies all turn the odds in a Witchdoctor’s favor. Witchdoctors master hoodoo and the dark arts. Through their training they can learn the Mournsong power which summons spirits to drain the health of their enemies.
The Swashbuckler is 1 of the 5 player classes in Pirate 101 and it is not unlike a priest in games like Everquest II and World of Warcraft.
Swashbucklers rely on speed and finesse in combat, sneaking up on their foes and striking by surprise, then dodging the enemy’s attacks when they finally arrive. They are deadly with a blade, but not nearly as tough as a Buccaneer, sacrificing toughness for damage. Just like their cunning raccoon trainer, Swashbucklers are quick on their feet and skilled with a blade. After training for the Dance of Steel power, Swashbucklers can attack every enemy around them at the same time.
The Privateer is 1 of the 5 player classes in Pirate 101 and it is not unlike a priest in games like Everquest II and World of Warcraft.
Privateers are born leaders, commanders who can rally their troops to victory through the most desperate of battles. Privateers can recruit more Companions than any other class, and their powers focus on boosting their Companions’ capabilities and healing them in the thick of the fight. It’s good to be friends with a Privateer Pirate because their specialty is supporting and healing their allies & Companions. They can even go so far as to heal all their Companions with the Reinforce power received through training.
The Musketeer is 1 of the 5 player classes in Pirate 101 and it is not unlike a Hunter (minus the hunter pet) in World of Warcraft.
Musketeers are expert marksmen who use their mastery of firearms and trick shots to win battles. Musketeers damage their enemies at long range and keep them at a distance with traps and obstacles, denying foes any chance for hand-to-hand combat. The Musketeer Pirate is a tricky one! You specialize in creating traps and obstacles to slow down your enemies so you can snipe them from a safe distance. The Musketeer’s iconic power is the Rain of Mortarshells which blankets an area with explosive traps!
The Buccaneer is 1 of the 5 player classes in Pirate 101 and it is not unlike a warrior in games like World of Warcraft.
Buccaneers are sturdy warriors who rely on brute strength to overcome their enemies. They wear the heaviest armor and carry the biggest weapons. What Buccaneers lack in grace or finesse they make up for with raw courage. Withstanding enemy attacks is the key to a Buccaneer’s strategy. As a Buccaneer, your Pirate is strong and tough! You can wear the heaviest armor and wield the biggest weapons in the Spiral. The Buccaneer’s signature power, Blade Storm, gives your Pirate an extra attack if they drop an enemy in combat.
