For your very first pirate, I would recommend Privateer, because of his healing ability and long range attacks.

Second would say Buccaneer, because it is really hard to knock him out with his armor and high hit points.

First, Swashbuckler. Being able to hide and then come in with a devastating blow is always useful.

I would save Witchdoctor and Musketeer for later pirates unless you particularly like them.

Welcome to the message boards!

What is you play style like? Do you like to run up and hit things or hold back and let your crew do the heavy lifting?

If you want to get stuck in, then go with Buccaneer or Swashbuckler. If you'd rather stand back, Witchdoctor and Musketeer are your best bets. If you want the best of both worlds, you can't go wrong with a Privateer.

Is this your very first pirate? If so, then I heartily recommend the privateer. You can explore both play styles and find the one best suited to your personality.

First Pirate? Buccaneer, by far from experience the easiest class I've ever played as
Want a taste of some magic with heavy damage, without being a witchdoctor? Swashbuckler. They get a magic poison ability, with hides, and can do easily do 1500 with an assassin's strike, I have 4 of them on my max swash, so in theory, about 6000 damage, not counting the bleed.
Want to be ranged, but with accuracy? Go Musketeer, one of my favorites, you can do some serious damage, and get good companions with burst 2, easily making chains to take them down!
Want to be ranged, but not rely on normal attacks? Witchdoctor. all you do is rely on class powers, one of the easiest classes to play as, just don't forget Old Scratch is your best friend here.
Support? Privateer lol

Then I suggest a melee class for a change of pace - swashbuckler or buccaneer, both are powerful and are able to solo the game. Swash does swift bursts of damage and the buck is a tank; great health and armor stats.
