Pirates of the Burning Sea Review 2015

I am writing a review about Pirates of the Burning sea and updating the new features that are outdated on the Game List.
Disclaimer: The following article is the sole opinion of its author and does not represent MMORPG.com in its thoughts or opinions. This is not an official MMORPG.com editorial article.

The game Pirates of the Burning Sea is a brilliant MMORPG. The community is great inside the game and there are some tips you will pick up on the way on your adventure. Pirates of the Burning Sea.

There are Careers you can choose from 4 Nationalities

Players can choose a career for their avatars when they begin the game. The Career determines what abilities and features he will accrue as a captain. The player will receive one point for his avatar's career on every other level gained. These points can be spent in various ways depending on which career the player has chosen. Once a career is chosen, it cannot be changed.

There are a total of 45 skills for each career. The skill trees are composed of 9 skill chains, each 5 skills in depth. A player will be able to reach the end of a single skill chain by Rank 15, and is then considered somewhat equal to a Rank 50 in that skill chain.

The different careers for nationals (British, Spanish, French) are:

  • Naval officer - Focuses on defense, escorting duties, and direct, broadside-to-broadside combat. Naval Officers gain access to powerful ships of the line.
  • Privateer - Focuses on utilizing the advantages of smaller ships to outmaneuver and outwit opponents. Privateers have an edge in boarding combat and can learn a skill that enables them to use Pirate PvP zones.
  • Freetrader - Focuses on trading, production and economics. They have abilities to effectively evade opponents in combat. Freetraders may learn skills that increase their ability to gather resources and produce goods.

The different careers for pirates are:

  • Cutthroat - All-around capability including the special ability to take command of defeated ships. These ships only have one durability point. If a Pirate takes command of a class specific ship he will automatically be flagged for PvP. Before version 1.4 this career was called just "Pirate" and was the only career available to the 'Pirate' faction.
  • Buccaneer - More advanced career with more in the moment type skills. The command oriented "pirate", can use and collect captured ships deeds and can give bonuses to allied ships.
All careers have a unique ability and big role in the game.
 
There are many places to explore and many things to do so you can never get bored. There are over 1000 missions to complete and there is a fascinating Story-line mission which adapts to Role Playing.
 
Types of opportunities you can choose from;
 
PvE - This has many parts into it such as fleeting against NPC's in 8's or 12 packs, there are missions to complete and earn new and exciting items to use.
 
Economy - Obviously you can choose to do economy if you are interested in economy. This can help towards your friends or the nations ships, ship fittings, ammunition and repairs for battles and also materials to help craft other items. Although Portalus released this economy patch 2.15 on a lower population, it has many exciting routes you can go to build great things.
 
PvP - This is a Player vs Player side to the game where you can go alone or go with friends to the open sea and find other players to fight against. This can be a competitive scene if you choose to do PvP there is also a role of RvR which combines to PvP. RvR is Real vs Realm which is "Nation against Nation" If you flip a port discussed by the nation for example (Santo Domingo or Irish Point) You will need to bring the Ports' contention points to 10000. To do this you can flag your ship permanently for PvP (You can turn this off by the port captain) and site outside the Port with a minimum of a 5 person group. (Also dependant on group strength) This would be called blockading a port and you must have a minimum group strength of 500 to do so and the opposing team can do the opposite and Patrol with a minumum of 400 group strength once the points have reached 10000 it will give 3 days for players to get points to Attack or Defend the port in an instance called a Port Battle where there are a maximum for 24 players each side. The victor will either keep the Port if they win defending or if the attackers will keep the port (Pirates can only capture ports and that lasts for 3 days)
 
Pirates of the Burning Sea has come so far to be where it is today and I always love to play it with the unique community it has.
