Hey guys its me Griffin and I was wondering if you could help me out. I recently started a new privateer ( Wordy Cyrus Eastman ) an I realized " Man, I am gonna need some help If I want to make it as a privateer." so I was wondering I any of you great privateers out there could help me out with some advice. My 's level is about 18 I think. Hope you can help!

As long as you think of your crew as your weapon you will do great. A privateer excels when they support their crew. Protect those squishies as they will be dealing out the damage for you. Once you get higher you can farm for gear that gives you some powerful hits but for the most part, farm to keep that crew trained for your buffs and heals will empower them to protect you.

I can help try to boost your strength not will. Will is just for healing you should care about will when you get all healing powers also try to learn dodgy talents because most privateers stay back and use buffs but when it's time all the dodgyness will help you overcome a pirates nightmare a buccaneer's reckless frenzy and the worst part vengence strike 3 a strike that can stun you in pvp. Goodluck on leveling up your privateer.

Save ALL side quest companions for AFTER you max out so that you don't have to murder your gold piles.

believe it or not, privateers are the most unique class in p101, and also, in my and the opinion of many, the strongest. dont charge, you will get wrecked. buff, shield, and heal your companions wisely, because a maxed privateer that knows what he is doing as all but unstoppable!

I hear ya. I had a hard time transitioning from my Witchdoctor, Hank, over to my Swashbuckler, Liam. So different attack strategies. My first instinct on my Swashy is to stay back and use Juju, then hit with Mojo Strike the next round.

Anyway, my advice is pretty much stay back the entire time and buff. I know that's probably hard for you, considering you're usually jumping forward first round(And I don't blame you, that's how a Swashy functions). Also, I'd try and use Gunnery first round.

Cheers!
