Should I do a Witchdoctor?

Hello Everybody!

I've played Wizard101 for the past couple of years, but I believe its time to change it up a bit. Pirates it is! Yarr!

Anyways, I've been considering playing a witchdoctor. But here is the question: Should I? I understand that all classes are different, and they all their own advantages/weaknesses, styles, strategies and whatnot. I've already created the character, and it seems interesting. But, I know plenty of our fellow pirates out there have created this class, and I wish to have their opinions about it!

Sincerely,
The Phantom

Yes, you should -- and you should create a Buccaneer, and Muskeeteer, etc. My first pirate is a Witchdoctor, and she's my go-to, but I enjoy playing all of my characters.

All of the classes are so different, and the team make-up is different as you recruit different companions and do different quests for them. It really helps your thinking on all pirates to have used the other classes' powers and teams.

Enjoy sailing the skyways, whatever you choose!

Hello Phantom. My story is the same as yours... Wiz101 to Pirate101... so I took the logical path and went right for the "magic user" angle. I now have a max level Witchdoctor and I gotta tell you, it was a lot of fun getting him here. As you've probably noticed, the combat system is quite a bit different. Much better if you ask my opinion. So are a lot of other aspects of the game that "sort of" crossed over from Wiz. But as far as choosing a Witchdoctor as your first pirate I say go for it. You probably won't be disappointed. But by all means, don't ignore the other classes. I now have one of everything and they're all fun to play in their own different ways. Just like Wiz!

As a witchdoctor, it was rather a challenging and interesting storyline. This class have been, working on my guile side as a player. It was the hardest class, in my opinion to play as a character. Although, I have been defeated a lot of time, later on this class got better and stronger with healing abilities and lots of practice. I'm nearly max as a and half way done in Aquila.

For this class, I would say go for it. If you want a challenging storyline, and an interesting pirate character.

That is exactly why I wanted to chose the witchdoctor! I wanted to still be a magic using class. I also enjoy the combat system a lot. I enjoy that there are a lot of more things you can do on the playing board vs just picking cards on Wizard101. It is different then I expected, but it is very enjoyable.

To those who replied, I've decided to do the witchdoctor class, guys! You all convinced me So far I am loving it!!! I can't wait to continue in the future! Thank you for your feedback! See you in the spiral!

Sincerely,
The Phantom
