Take the Quiz - Which Pirate101 Class is Right For You?

First of all, if you emailed in a design question, I answered it at http://www.swordroll.com/2012/05/your-design-questions-answered.html! It isn't too late to email in questions if you're interested! However, for now, if you haven't decided, or even if you have, it's time to take a quick little quiz to see which Pirate101 class you're most suited for.

Mostly A's - You're a Swashbuckler! Your rely almost solely on your speed an finesse to outdo your opponent, and plan clever sneak attacks to further your cause. You specialize in weapons made especially for finesse, and likely have a high dodge skill. You're decently powerful, with a deadly agility. Your cunning raccoon trainer will teach you to be quick on your feet and skilled with a blade. You'll be able to attack multiple enemies at once, so you're never at a disadvantage when surrounded.

Mostly B's - It's a Musketeer's life for you! As a musketeer, you're an expert marksman who is a mastery of firearms and trick shots. You prefer to damage enemies safely from afar and force enemies to keep their distance by setting up many advanced traps, including your special attack, called Rain of Mortarshells! Your obstacles, in unison with your ability to snipe from afar, make you an icon. Your explosive traps also add to a battle and make for an interesting scenario. Your accuracy skill is very important to you.

Mostly C's - Is there a Witchdoctor in the house? In this pirate class, you're a master of arcane powers, and use them to rig the outcome of battles and combat. You might be lacking in the armor skill, but I'd imagine that your resistance and will are quite notable! By these same principles, you're weak in direct fights, but you've got hexes to weaken foes, blasts of fire to attack from a distance, and a special ability, Mournsong, allowing you to summon spirits to drain the health of your enemies! Playing fair is not part of your philosophy. You train in the dark arts.

Mostly D's - You're a Buccaneer! You rely on your brute strength to overcome enemies, and your outstanding courage will do the rest! What you lack in grace and finesse, you make up for in toughness. You can wield the biggest weapons, and wear the heaviest armor. Your signature power, Blade Storm, gives you an extra ability for each enemy you defeat in battle! Your strength skill is at the top of the charts, and your armor skill helps you resist attacks, making for the perfect strategy.

Mostly E's - It's a Privateer for you! You're a natural-born leader. You command an rally your troops into battle, and can recruit more companions than any other pirate class! Your abilities focus on boosting your teammates' abilities and attacks in battle. You've probably got a nice balance of skills around the board. With your special Reinforce power, you can heal wounded teammates in battle.

Keep in mind that this quiz is just for fun, but it can help you make the difficult decision on a pirate class!

Thanks for reading, and see you in the Spiral!


  1. Being a Privateer is the pirates life for me!! :)

  2. Swashbuckler....MA LIFE DREAM!!!

  3. Guns < Swords, just saying

  4. I can't choose between Buccaner Swash, or musk. Swashbucklers Do the best damage but it's a really wide damage range so you may not end up with a powerful attack.
    Buccaneers can do big damage quickly just a BIT smaller damage than the swash.
    Muskateers can attack enemies from a range and defend themselves with traps. and they happen to have maybe the third most powerful hits?

  5. Im A Witch Doctor Yay They Are Awsome!!!!!!!!!!!


  6. I'm a swashbuckler awesome!

  7. Sweet! i am a buccaneer

  8. Yay I`m a swashbuckler.

  9. No, it's guns>swords. Swords (swashbucklers, buckaneers) go all up in the battle and despite being tought and agile, THEY are the class that gets killed the most often. Witchdoctors have handy spells for different occasions, but musketeers can kill from a safe distance, and the traps are really powerful, so you're always safe if an enemy comes your way. Now, I'm not saying that the schools are bad, because they aren't and they have their quirks, but honestly. I buckaneer and a swashbuckler vs a musketeer and say, a witchdoctor in PVP- musk and witch would win, IF both sides correctly used their strengths. All classes are dangerous in their own ways, remember that! But musketeers rock.
    -Perilous Geniveve Ashburn, musketeer.

  12. I am an awesome Swashbuckler
