    Privateer or Musketeer

    So now that I have maxed out my swashbuckler, I'm looking for a new class. I've narrowed it down to Privateer and Musketeer. Does anyone want to help me decide?

    Privateer may be more familiar to you, having played a Swashbuckler. Privateer can be either a defensive melee fighter, boosting crewmates and letting them do most of the battling, or wading in along with the rest and playing offensively. However, Privateer is will-boosted, so training some witchy abilities is also a viable strategy to give some ranged attacks in addition to the gunnery line of powers, or to use Staffy or combo weapons.

    Musketeer specializes in ranged attacks and traps/bombs. Line of sight is very important to a Musketeer, and letting the enemy come to you works wonders with talents like Overwatch. Musketeers don't usually get up close and personal with the enemy if they can help it.

    Privateers get a few more companions along the way than Musketeers, if that makes any difference.

    I've played all classes and they are all fun, just in different way.

    Either one I'd love to help out with while I wait for more crowns XD (I am high level, so not sure if that's an advantage or a put off)

    I would have to say Privateer, but all Classes are the same in quality and fun. Not everyone likes certain Classes, so I can't guarantee you'll have more fun on a Privateer than a Musketeer or vice versa, but I know all Classes are exciting. I'll still have to go with Privateer, though.

    Re: Privateer or Musketeer

    If you want a similar battle plan go with Privateer. If you want the most companions go with Privateer. If you want a totally different battle plan go with Musketeer.

    As of right now this advice is coming from a Privateer who uses guns who is working on a Musketeer.

    Cheerful

    Re: Privateer or Musketeer

    Personally i would say muskteer cause i favor guns over swords (sometimes) and I have a weapon which is very dear to my heart called ''Glided Sparquebus'' ;however i feel like privateer is a support cause most of his abilities are healing but its up to u.Hope I helped!

    Re: Privateer or Musketeer

    I'd go for the playstyle that sounds more fun to you, Personally i'd go with Musketeer as I've always found the sheer amount of Aoe and powers that whittle down enemies from afar fun to play with
