Guide to Max Buccaneer pvp in 2018

Well its time for a GOOD buccaneer pvp guide (just joking duelist, yours is out of date that's all :P) so while I have only a little experience in ranked pvp, I won against other players who probably should have killed me. This is Jack's guide to BUCCANEER PVP!

First the gear, you will have needed to farm kane, for this gear since its some of the best buck gear. (sorry I stitched all mine...)
this hat comes from kane, a must have 

also from kane, also a must have

again from kane, yet another must have

I prefer the kraven blade, however if you don't want to spend crowns moo manchus staff of power is an excellent replacement, better than the minotaur axe in my opinion.

schemer's eyepatch drops from several places in mb pick one and farm, as for my preferred is the patch of saint fido, costs crowns but is well worth it.

the token of moo Manchu while not a kane drop provides some needed powers.

this as well from kane is essential, it gives you a strength buff and tritons chorus(more on that later)

again from moo, however its combo of levy and super strike is a must have, since bubbles stack an extra levy is always good.
the strategy here is basically to treat it like a boss fight. most important thing to do is have your companions buff, and you spam tritons chorus, which will make melee attacks have reduced damage on you and your companions, this stacks as well so swashbucklers will have a harder time killing you.
I use three buck companions, always for every fight these are my preferred three (with 2 extra
barnabus is a must I gave him veng 3 so he could stun hold the line 2 blade storm 2, he is basically the main blocker and tank of the companions, a good strategy for him would to have him use his bubble in conjunction with yours, and have you and your companions go form a square with him spearheading the enemy, that way they can't get past to go for you.

Peter is another must, his buff is essential because you will be busy spamming triton chorus. 
I gave him relentless3 vengeance strike 3 and second chance. he should be in the left corner behind barney and in front of you
goro died while on the dreadnaught so ya... but in pvp he's great :D  
I gave him relentless 3 and vengeance strike 2 as well as bladestorm since I want him to hit more.
he should be in the right corner of the square barney in front, you behind.
ratbeard is a great replacement for goro, he has a bubble (always helps) multiple powers and great melee defensive abilities. I would give him first strike and repel boarders 3, he would replace goros place and act as a good damage combo dealer, blade storm and hold the line are a must since bladestorm gets him the extra hit and hold the line is good for that one extra stop.

bet you didn't see this one coming. Gaspard is actually overpowered in his own way. he can learn repo 3 which gives him a dodge buff every time he dodges. I gave him repel borders 2 and bladestorm 2, because I want him to deal some when people go to him. First strike is optional but it helps.
melee classes
basically form a diamond, barney spear heading you in the back and the other two on your preferred side, let them come to you while you buff and when they attack they will have some major damage on their end, when its your turn simply have you and everyone target the same enemy, goro might die when they attack but hopefully not. even if he does the enemy will be hurt and it will be an easier job. goros a pawn basically, use his general view of op to your advantage :D
musketeer is an easy class to beat for bucks, all you have to do is charge them and your good from there. might I suggest that you do the 1x9x9 strategy until you knock a few off, go for the player first and knock one other out, then group, the 1x9x9 was invited by me after farming rooke so much, basically I figured out that the dragoons would bomb the static items on the board and not me or my companions if we split into a way where bombs would only hit one of us at a time, people tend to do this as well, acting much like ai in the sense they want maximum damage.  odds are a musket isn't going to bomb one person and then watch as everyone else is unharmed and can walk freely. and don't bubble just rush first chance you get

Same as musket really, 1x9x9 and charge. save the bubbles and take out the pirate, always remember this, witchdoctors can be easily defeated but underestimate them and you might very well lose.  

don't buff with muskets and witchdoctors, odds are you'll critical anyways so just attack.

just by doing this I obtained warrior undefeated without much challenge before my membership ran out, one thing, I've often been called one of the best bucks, by some of my pvp friends too! however I hardly ever pvp, I have the gear, the strategy and the companions for this underloved pvp class. Buccaneers are one of the if not the most powerful classes in pirate101 if done right. their counters, bucklers and witchdoctors can be easily defeated by them if you know the buck class. so since I never pvp I pass these on to you, in hopes that you can bring glory to the buccaneer class!



  1. This guide is not good and does not represent the bucc class well. Although duelist's guide has a lot of problems, it is infinitely better than this guide.
    1. You have no forts
    2. You have no heals
    3. Your shields will not block poison, bleed, magic, bombs, etc
    4. Both of those weapons are kinda bad imo.
    5. No offense, you are not one of the best bucks.
    6. You need to run El Toro or Wu Tang
    7. A buckler can just purge and remove your triton stack
    8. Your set might work against a mediocre or bad buccaneer, but that's about it

  2. hey I respect your opinion and thanks for the tips, I just posted this because it usually works for me, I don't expect people to use or even like it. And you would be surprised how often it works.
    true they can purge it, however most people don't, this isn't designed for a pvp only build this is designed for a build that can do both enough pvp to get you to a good rank and pve so you can solo kane (or just don't want to change gear) I used to be one of the best bucks, maybe not in stuff like pvp tournaments but I had the gear and skill when not many others did. but hey i'm no duelist and i'm not trying to be, I just wanted to post this guide since it seems to work for me and help out some of the fellow bucks that seem to struggle going into pvp. tbh I would probably use duelist at champion but going in after a break, nah, and that's what this is for. thanks again for commenting
