In the last major update, it was stated that now, all Privateers use WILL, instead of being STRENGTH or WILL. That being said, all pirate's weapons give a boost to their class's main stat (I.E. Agility for Stabby, Strenght for Smashy, and Will for Staffy), but now since privateer's use will, wouldn't that mean that they're Slashy/Smashy weapons (that the game gives by default) should also be will based and not strenght based? Other wise, Privateers would start needing to use Sfaffy weapons to add an extra oomph to their attacks.

Hi! It sounds like there may be a misunderstanding? As stated on this thread, "The Update Note does say, 'Privateer companions may now use Will to attack, to properly benefit from their high Will.'

If it is listed somewhere else that is confusing, please let us know and we'll get that fixed!"

Oh, my bad! When you guys said Privateer Companions, I assumed you meant all Privateers in general. My Mistake. Thanks for clearing that up!

The equipped weapon actually determines what attribute (strength, will, or agility) is used for the attack. Some combo weapons (smashy/slashy, stabby/smashy, etc.) could actually use two attributes for the attack.
