New Pirate Careers

New Pirate Careers -

The folks from Pirates of the Burning Sea have announced some details on the two new pirate careers that are available in the next update.


Cutthroats represent the brutal side of the Brethren of the Coast. They lead short and violent lives and their answers to problems are short and to the (sword) point. They don't make ships; they steal them. Cutthroats take what they want and demolish anyone foolish enough to get in their way. Blackbeard is the classic cutthroat archetype.

 Example Ship Skill:

Cutthroat: Desperation Fire

This is the third skill in the Disaster chain. It’s a reckless attack skill that deals massive damage, but weakens your own armor.

Target: Enemy

Morale Cost: 20

Self Damage: Port Armor: 5%

Self Damage: Starboard Armor: 5%

Self Damage: Bow Armor: 5%

Self Damage: Stern Armor: 5%

Attack Damage: +40%

Reset Timer: 60 seconds


Buccaneers are pirates too, but a bit subtler than their burning-bearded brethren. They steal and loot, but also manipulate the black markets. Some would call them gentleman adventurers, though few are true blue bloods. Buccaneers do not have the raw power of cutthroats, but they work well in groups and can help friends and cripple enemies. Buccaneers are more challenging to play than cutthroats, so are recommended for players with Pirates of the Burning Sea experience.

Example Ship Skill:

 Buccaneer: Survivor 

This is the first skill in the Gambler chain. It’s a click buff that increases your resistance, max range, accuracy, speed and damage. Only works when your current total armor for all facings is below 82% of the max (50% on one broadside).

Duration: 5 minutes

Morale Cost: 40

Damage Resistance: +10%

Maximum Cannon Range: +5%

Accuracy: +2

Maximum Ship Speed, Battle: +5%

Damage: +5%

Reset Timer: 10 minutes
