    What skills would you use to make a Pirate captain?



    Swords (to use a cutlass) and Tactics but then what?

    Is this a trick question? It's all in the hat, matey. Your effects. Unfortunately, EA had to scrap some of the pirate-like hair-dos and such ;P.

    Here is a picture of my current Captain with the EC client. :)

    Though in a roleplaying sense it might be more accurate to use a cutless (swordsmanship), given what we know about boat to boat combat from the demo today, ranged combat is a huge advantage, as it takes awhile to "board" the enemy ships because you have to damage them a bunch first. During that time, the NPCs (or even player characters) are busy hitting you for much damage.

    So I would recommend archery very much.

    I guess, there will be some kind of los-problems if you try to attack others on undamaged boats. (To even out the possible disadvantage.)
    I already wonder about my fishers templates. (I have two of them on different shards, if you wonder. *g*) One seems nearly to be prepared for that expansion pack. I used to play her as a 'techno-mage'. Which included tinkering for reparing golems. I guess she is better prepared for the expansion than many other fishers out there. :D (Though I should get for her a copy of suteks manual and maybe some vollems/ingredients for them.)

    This is my old undead Norse sea captain.

    He's a fisher, a fencer, and a necromancer. He hasn't set foot on land in 7 years. He's gone through a few costume changes, and has added a cloak and buckler to his ensemble since this picture was taken (of one of my KR skins).

    His current vessel is a large dragonship called the Valkyrie IV (the previous three were lost), but I'll be looking to upgrade it... aye.

    Thanks. :sword: (no pirate emoticon here?)

    Stratics schmooshed it down a bit when I attached it. This is not the legendary "blurry" KR's fault. I should host my stuff properly.

    I did a rough port (arr) of this skin to SA but they cut out a lot of the areas that could be used to insert some character into it. There's not even two end caps on the scrollbars, so I couldn't use the block-and-tackle look.

    I've basically shelved the project until EC is out of beta... *long pause for distant, mournful whalesong* ...because I got burned last time; KR was scuttled shortly after I made this skin. In any case, I'm watching the proper mod packs and thinking of doing skins over those instead of the standard layout.
