    Ideal weapon for a Privateer?

    Well, Buccaneers wield heavy weapons like a broadsword, Musketeers obviously use guns, Swashbucklers use light weapons like double blades, and Witch doctors use staves & whatever else that's voodoo-ish. What bout Privateers? If it's a telescope, how do we attack with it? xD

    I don't know for sure, but on videos a lot of privateers have been using a mix of swords and guns.

    Every class gets a no-auction weapon from main quests every five levels, all in the same general style. Swashbucklers use daggers, witchdoctors use wands and staves, musketeers use guns, rifles, and crossbows, buccaneers use oversized, two-handed swords, and privateers use swords and shields.

    Thanx for clearing this up, ~Misty~, swords & shields seem really suitable for Privateers

    Re: Ideal weapon for a Privateer?

    Well, I interpreted the Privateer Class as more of a healing/support type role rather than a on-the-front-line damage dealing type role in battle. But, even healers have to have some kind of weapon. I think because of the fact that privateers are more of healers that they won't have a unique kind of weapon; that their ability to heal themselves and teammates is more of their unique ability.

    They are. The way they work is that they do a bit less damage than other melee weapons, but also provide a pretty nice amount of armor.

    Re: Ideal weapon for a Privateer?

    Well most of the school-based weapons are a sword and shield. Usually the sword is hanging on the left side of your belt and the shield is held on your back by a sling. I prefer to use the two pocket-knives though. They just seem more my style and, on my opinion, have better damage than the shield&sword. (I do admit dodging with the shield is cool though )

    This is not correct. Only Privateers get swords and shields.

    Re: Ideal weapon for a Privateer?

    I too didn't know what the 'default' weapon type for Privateer was, until I made a new pirate and used the Boochbeard promotion quest: it gave my Privateer rank 1, 5, 10, and 15 sword & buckler sets, and I was like 'Ok then'.

    I like the heavy duty armor rating you can get for this class, though I admit considering the twin daggers for more damage. However, I'm playing this Privateer as a stand-off attacker, training Witchdoctor powers second, so armor is better than melee damage for now.
