i like but I also like . I love pvp and witchdocter is feared in pvp but I like the bounty hunter look swash has and fighting style and idk if swash is feared in pvp or not but I can manage with swash but swash is seen around the realms a lot unlike witchdocters I have seen like 50 swash in 1 realm so u can see how hard this decision is. Become 1 of a hundred swash or 1 in a decent number of witchdocters. I hope u guys can help me decide which as u have more experience in this then I do.

Well I am only guessing from what you wrote here but since you like to fight closer Privateers can do that but they are usually busy boosting and healing and only get a good hit in if they aren't busy. You will like Swashbucklers and Buccaneers as they get in there and plow through the enemy. A Musketeer will too but will also do some standing back and shooting and throwing bombs and traps. So I think you will like aspects of all of them especially since there are combo weapons that let you pirate get a taste of other styles. It looks like you might enjoy Swashbuckler or Buccaneer the best but you have enough slots to try each one so test them out.

Well, I need some info from you.
  1. Would you rather have more damage?
  2. Would you like to set up traps?
  3. Would you like to be able to heal and buff?
  4. would you like to be the tank class?
  5. Would you like to cast spells?

Well, have you looked into all their abilities and the such? Some of the Witchdoctor spells were a bit hard for me to understand at first, but in the end it was all good.
I can't decide for you, but since you've though about this for days, this is the only piece of advice I can give you. Play both classes. Create another pirate and have that pirate be a Witchdoctor. Whenever you feel like playing Swashbuckler, play your Swashbuckler, and whenever you feel like playing Witchdoctor, go on your Witchdoctor! Of course, if you end up not being in the mood for either of the classes, you can always do the same for another class and play that class whenever you feel like it. (I have one of each class, two Privateers because I get too much gear for them to only fit on one pirate. )

Witch doctor would fit you, you like high attack it seems well witchdoctors kick hide on that.
Because of recent updates Witchdoctors can fight hand-to-hand also, even have a staff and a sword! But if you use for example a staffy/slashy you forfeit natural ranged attacks.

I hope this helps you!

Lol, I wouldn't worry about it. The best way to learn good strategy is to get your tush kicked by a surprising boss then go back an figure out why and change your style to overcome the new challenge. Losing a fight isn't a fail, It's a chance to learn something new. Kan Po Taught my well.
