There are two armors that are used by the Pirate Class: Sea Scourge and Swashbuckler's Raiment. Aesthetically, they are different, as the Sea Scourge outfit is blue and has an eye-patch, a peg leg, and a hook-hand, while the Swashbuckler's Raiment outfit has a red jacket (and both of his legs and his hands). For all intents and purposes, the stats are the same. Also, there is a special attack included when an HP pot is drank. An animation is performed where the Chosen chugs the HP pot and tosses the empty bottle at the enemy, performing:

  • Hits: 1
  • Attack Type: Ranged
  • Element: Earth
  • Damage: Base: 0%, Random: 0%, Stats: 100%
  • BtH: 0 plus Stats (does not get bonus from weapon)
  • Corrective Effect: If the monster's Earth Resistance is 0 or less, then the damage is set to 0. This prevents you healing the monster after you heal yourself.


All Combat Defences are increased by +(ClassLevel*2/3) each, rounded normally. Elements increase based on Level:

  • Fire: None
  • Water: - round(0.4 + ClassLevel*1.75)
  • Wind: - round(0.4 + ClassLevel*1.75)
  • Ice: - round(ClassLevel/2 - 0.4)
  • Earth: None
  • Energy: - round(ClassLevel/2 - 0.4)
  • Light: - ClassLevel
  • Darkness: - ClassLevel

You weave like you're on a ship deck in a heavy storm, and your unpredictable movements leave your enemies unsure where to aim with their Ranged attacks! While active, +6 to Ranged Defense. Costs 3 SP per turn. You cannot have both this and Swash. Defense.

  • Hit 1:
    • Type: Ranged
    • Element: Fire
    • Damage: Base: round(4 + 0.5*ScaledEffectiveLevel + 0.005*ScaledEffectiveLevel^2)*0.55*47.7/99 damage Random: round(13 + 1.25*ScaledEffectiveLevel + 0.005*ScaledEffectiveLevel^2)*0.55*47.7/99 damage Stats: round(100 + 8.8*ScaledEffectiveLevel)*0.55*47.7/99%
    • BtH: floor(ScaledEffectiveLevel/4) plus Stats  

Effect: Counts as a spell. If it connects and monster is not Fire-Element and the hit deals >0 damage, then it attempt to Burn the monster for five rounds. The Level of the burn is ScaledEffectiveLevel:

Level:ScaledEffectiveLevel vs MonsterLevel

Major:YourCHA vs MonsterCHA

Level: YourLUK vs MonsterLUK

    • BtH: floor(ScaledEffectiveLevel/4) plus Stats

Effect: Counts as a spell. If the attack succeeds and deals >0 damage, then the monster is "flogged". This sets up a "Flog Bonus" equal to current SkillLevel. If the monster is "flogged" a second time, then either the "Flog Bonus" remains the same (if your current SkillLevel is less than the old "Flog Bonus") or the "Flog Bonus" becomes equal to your current SkillLevel (if your current SkillLevel is greater than or equal to the old "Flog Bonus").

If successful, you gain one HP potion and one MP potion.
