Each player in Pirate101 will be able to select one of five different classes of pirate to play. Each class has its own unique abilities, strengths and powers.
Buccaneers are the big hitters who wear the heaviest class of armor and carry the largest weapons. Buccaneers rely on raw strength and courage.
Musketeers are the best marksmen in the spiral, using long range attacks with their lightning powder charged weapons. Traps and trick shots make a Musketeer a wily opponent indeed.
Privateers are the natural leaders of the pirate world, attracting more Companions than any other class. Their ability to rally their troops and heal them in the thick of battle can see them through the most desperate battles.
Speed, finesse, and surprise are the qualities of the Swashbuckler. Deadly with a blade and using surprise attacks, Swashbucklers inflict the greatest damage.
Masters of the mysterious powers of hoodoo, witchdoctors make the spookiest opponents. Witchdoctors rely on hexes, magical blasts and charms to turn the odds to their favor.
