"Pirate" is a buff some companions have (and that your Pirate can train) that gives you extra attack power when you have boarded another ship. I know Ratbeard has it, for sure. Don't know of any other companions specifically.

I dont know if all my companions get it but I know a few do. Ratbeard, Sarah Steele, Lucky Jack Russel and Subodai are the ones I've seen get the buff. I have it on my Swashbuckler as well and its a nice little boost when you jump to the enemy ship.

I believe that is a swashbuckler talent.

I love it. I know I can hold my own and really break down the house when I get boarded, or board another ship.

Buccaneers get it as well. In fact, I thought I saw it in some other classes as well, though I guess the only other class it would make sense for is the Privateer.

Ooh ok. To think of it, I did see the "Pirate" talent pop up at several trainers.

Cool talent, situational of course, but just awesome to have.

Well then what the heck does sniper do !
Pirate is a talent that any class can actually train, but some get this talent without the cost of any practice points. This talent gives a +25% attacking power when aboard and enemy ship!

As for the sniper talent, this is a great talent, it gives +1 attack range. So, if your weapon has an attack range of 3, you can attack at a range of 4. WOOT WOOT!
