    Buccaneer Companions Training

    So after reading a few things on this forum, and recently starting a Buccaneer. My knee-jerk reaction to companions is this....Meaning the best companions and the best way to train them, here is my opinion. Now this is lower levels, not talking about max level companions or anything. AND, I'm also talking PVE.

    Peter Quint (Because he is a good complimentary buccaneer and pretty awesome, and gets an advantage with my strength buffs, and also comes with a 50% buff)
    Ratbeard (Because he is a good complimentary buccaneer and pretty awesome)
    Bonnie Anne (Helps me with any range I may need and helps lower dodge on enemies)

    These three are my main attack force, then I would put Kobe, El Toro and Lost Ranger.

    I debated Kobe as one of my mains, but I noticed he dies quickly when low level (before first promo) and like El Toro, gains nothing from my buffs. I know Bonnie doesn't either, but I'd rather have a little range and overwatch.

    Here is how I see training them:

    Buccaneers need accuracy so one all my buccaneer companions Accuracy 4 (Acc)

    Peter Quint: Acc 4, Tough 4, Rough 4, Dodgy 4 - Epics: Bladestorm & Relentless

    Ratbeard: Acc 4, Tough 4, Rough 4, Dodgy 4 - Epics: Bladestorm & First Strike (I picked First Strike because I noticed he gets hit a lot)

    Bonnie Anne: Acc 4, Rough 4, Dodgy 4, Agility 4 - Epics: Burst Fire & Overwatch

    Kobe: Tough 4, Rough 4, Dodgy 4, Agility 4 - Epics: Riposte & Relentless

    El Toro: Tough 4, Rough 4, Dodgy 4, Agility 4 - Epics: Riposte & Relentless


    What do you think?

    What do you think?
    Ratbeard is more geared toward defense than offense, I think Ratbeard (mod) said that Ratbeard is supposed to be used while running with your tail between your legs or something. I later levels you'll see that Ratbeard doesn't get a whole lot of damage or armor, so I think i'd be in your best interest to give him acc4 tough4 dodgy4 and either strength4 (so he will crit more on non-buccs) or armor4 (defense is never a bad thing) and since his starter epic is already hold the line, give him HtL2 and First Strike or Cheap Shot (or both cause he can get both by he time hes admiral). This is just my opinion though, you don't have to do it if you don't want to, but the rest of your choices are good if not great for PvE

    Hmm...
    Kobe until you get Toro. Is what I'd do.

    Now I'm thinking:

    Peter Quint: Accuracy 4, Tough 4, Rough 4, Strong 4 - Epics: Veng. Strike & Relentless

    Dead Mike: Accuracy 4, Tough 4, Rough 4, Dodgy 4 - Epics: Veng. Strike & Riposte

    Bonnie Anne: Accuracy 4, Rough 4, Dodgy 4, Agility 4 - Epics: Burst Fire & Overwatch

    As my Mains.....
