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.
