    Which class next? Vote here!

    Musketeer has been all soloed out and it's time to start with another class.

    Since you went with a ranged class first, I suggest you try the exact opposite. Buccaneers get right into the thick of things, so you're strategies will need to be quite different.

    Re: Which class next? Vote here!

    As much as I want to say swashbuckler so I can imitate your playing style for all the hard fights, if you want a very tough challenge I would say go with a privateer.

    If you intend to solo with the use of companions, then I think you are more than capable of doing any fight with any class. Thus, I assume, you want to solo without companions, like your 1v7 against Kane.

    If the latter is the case, then as I said I recommend you choose the privateer. The privateer is a class designed to support the team, not support themselves like most of the other classes. I would like to see you try and make the privateer a class that can hang on its own and can be a one-man army. It would be interesting to see if it can be done.

    Also, I know every class is capable of learning overwatch 5. For the sake of diversity and a different class, I assume you are not going to use OV5? Otherwise, it would be too similar to your current playing style.

    ________

    If you think Privateer is too extreme to solo, then I would like to see you try with a swashbuckler. This would be even harder than a buccaneer in my opinion. A swashbuckler's greatest asset, imo, is black fog. However, this is a team spell. Without the use of companions, this would function as a single hide. I would like to see how you hold out with a buckler.
    ________

    I wouldn't try a witch, they rely on a lot of summons, and that potentially ruins the "solo" aspect. If you can try without summoning, that would be even harder than the privateer class, and a very tough challenge.


    All the best for your new class, whatever that may be

    I've finalized on Privateer. Lowest damage output, and the least effective without companions; what better way to makes things interesting when pirate soloing the smuggler's arena, or even Kane? Get ready for some action.




    We can expect the next set of videos to be much, much longer because I just went from the fastest PVE class to possibly the slowest.

    I knew you would eventually go for the challenge of the privateer! All the best, keen to see how it goes

    Re: Which class next? Vote here!

    Here's an update, I am running melee privateer because using the nefarious staff would be way too painstakingly slow and time-consuming for me. I did a test run in the Smuggler's Arena on practice mode. It took me an average of 45 minutes per battle but I left after the third wave; this means it would take over 7 hours if I am to complete it!
