    Best Class for Soloing?

    Hi everybody!
    I am just wondering which class is best for soloing. I really do not like teaming up with other members to conquer places and I prefer to be alone. I would love to work with other people, but with my old computer, I can't really be around other people because I will lag really bad. I can be around other in some areas, but then I have lag spikes which really irritates me. So may someone please suggest a class? Thank you very much.

    Re: Best Class for Soloing?

    In my opinion? Musketeer. But the best class for soloing will be whichever one you are best at. So no one can really tell you. Some people might say swashbuckler, but if (hypothetically, not saying you actually are lol) you're terrible at it, it won't be true will it?

    Every class can solo through the game, but I personally believe the Witchdoctor has the best tools to make it easier. Massive AoEs and Drain spells are enough to solo without further augmentation from other class abilities.

    Re: Best Class for Soloing?

    As stated before, any class could be successfully soloed, but I believe Privateer and Witchdoctor would be the most effective soloers.

    Privateer, although it appears to be just a support class, makes full use of Companions and is able to buff them as if they were other players. Witchdoctors have a good mix of long range, AoE, and support skills that make them versatile in both solo and group play.

    Re: Best Class for Soloing?

    I've started all the pirates but so far my favorite are the witchdoctor and the swashbuckler.

    The way I worked my swashbuckler was to get to Fin Dorsal in Jonas Town and stop there to farm for the pet. This way I used all the extra equipment and money to buy points to level my companions up. I got about three levels higher than regular and it made the game much easier to play. I spent all my money on upgrading ships and companions which helped along the way. The only problem I ran into was Ordaz, for some reason he was really hard for me (no problem with Gortez since my companions were max level).

    Good luck, I hope this helped.

    Re: Best Class for Soloing?

    I think that all classes can solo pretty effectively, but I think that privateer would be the easiest to solo overall. They get a lot of armor, and health, and they get such a variety of companions that help them in a variety of battles. Musketeer/Witchdoctor pirates are also pretty good at soloing. Because they are standing back, away from the battle most of the time, they usually don't have to worry about dying, and can let their companions take most of the damage. I had a few problems with my Swashbuckler and dying, but I'm guessing that it's easier in higher levels when they have a bit more health, and can deal even more damage. I'm not so sure about buccaneers. They get good armor, but have little to no resist, and the fewest number of companions out of all the classes. But I think that they would still be pretty effective at soloing, but maybe not the best.

    I have a musketeer and only a musketeer, but for the majority of the game, I had an easy enough time soloing.

    I'm a buccaneer and I soloed everything from skull island to valencia (almost done with cool ranch ) So I say any class can solo but I say the best is witchdoctor.
