Skill points

Post  Esmerelda Wildfury on Mon Oct 24, 2011 6:08 pm

We were discussing last night how some have problems placing skill points or are unsure where to place them. I think it would help some out for us to post our placement of points for others to see. I do not pretend to know the best set up. I just know what works for me. There will be different set ups for everyone's style of play or even sometimes a particular pirate. Some prefer attack first, some healing/protection, some an even balance between both. I will give you my set up on my girls to help those who need a peek. ( NOW If I can just get Piet to share his sailing skill point strat :P)
Best way is to first read what the point will do and decide where they should go as you figure out your game play style or the play u wish to have them set on that particular pirate. ( again this is not saying mine is the best way, just what I know to work for me and I am sure I could learn from others as well.)

Ok order of the girls Es/Phoebe/Sao. (Please note that cannon will differ a bit on my girls due to what rams they have)
Cannon:[b]
Shoot-5/5/5
Round shot-4/3/3
Chain shot-0/0/1
Grape shot-0/0/
Firebrand-2/1/1
Lightning-5/4/4
Explosives-0/0/1
Fury-5/5/5
PASSIVES-
Rapid reload-5/5/5
Barrage-5/5/5
Shrapnel-0/2/1


Sailing- (differences, if any are also due to what charts the lassies have and some experimentation going on.)
Left side-5/3/5 ( DUH I SAIL ON THE CORRECT SIDE OF THE SHIP piratetongue )
Right side-3/3/3
Full sail-3/1/1
Come about-1/1/1
Open fire-2/5/3
Ramming speed-1/1/1
Take cover-3/3/3

Passives-
Windcatcher-4/4/3
Tacking-2/1/1
Treasure sense- 5/5/5 ( I am all about the booty creepy so have 5 in all mine-svs you would set up differently)
Task master -4/3/5

SWORD-
(wording will vary due to what sword you have equipped due to the skills set for that sword- but the 5 across the top...) These will also reflect what boosts I have on a famed or legendary, as to how I place my points.

Chop-2/1/1
Roundhouse-2/1/1
Spin cut-2/2/1
Revere spin gut-3/4/4
Jumping Slash-4/5/5

Sweep-3/4/4
Brawl-2/1/1
Taunt-1/1/1
Blade storm-5/5/5

PASSIVES_
Parry-2/4/5
Endurance-5/5/5
( NOTE HERE **** IMO you should ALWAYS have 5 in Endurance it raises ur maximum health.) I put 5 in asap on all my pirates.)

Shooting- Too be honest, not sure of my gun set ups at all!!!!! But have them set to work best with my rare/famed weapons to compliment them.

Shoot-1/4/5
Take Aim-5/5/5

Lead Shot-4/1/1
Venom-2/1/0
Bane-3/1/1
Hex-3/3/3 ( cause of Jolly and timmy :P)
Silver-4/1/1
Steel-1/3/3

PASSIVES-
Sharp shooter-4/5/5
Dodge-1/2/2
Eagle Eye-5/5/5


Dagger--

Cut-2/1/1
Swipe-2/2/1
Gouge-3/3/1
Eviscerate-5/5/5

Asp-1/1/1
Venom-1/0/1 ( you will find the ones I do not care for I put no points in at all, again personal taste)
Throw dirt-1/2/2
Sidewinder-1/1/1
Vipers Nest-5/5/5

PASSIVES---
Finesse- 5/5/5
Blade instinct-5/5/5

GRENADE- ( does anyone REAAAAALLLY care?? Come on, honestly who uses them after u max them???? There is a reason to place points well tho, see Passives.)

Throw-2/2/1
Long Volley-4/3/3

Explosive-2/1/1
Stink pot-1/1/1
Fire bomb-1/1
Smoke bomb-1/1
Siege-3/3/3

PASSIVES ( and this what makes it matter...)
Determination-5/5/5 ( increases the rate u recover health)
Demolition-3/4/5 ( increases effect for ur grenades and your CANNONS)
Toughness-4/5/5 ( decrease damage suffered by cannons and nades)
Ignore Pain-4/5/5 (stun and effects reduced significantly)
This is the reason to max nades right here!!!! The passives are what makes it worth ur time.

Staff-
Now, here's where it really comes into my way I like to play and I do love me staff thumbsup
You will see skills I have skipped as I do not find them valuable to me/playing style or dont care for the trade off with them as in the Desolation.

Blast-1/1/1
Soul Flay-1/1/1
Pestilence-0/0/0 (for me better served in flaming skull than this skill as I have the burnt staff)
Whither-5/4/4
Flaming Skull-5/5/5 ( plus 2 with burnt staff makes for a very wicked weapon and one worth maxing potions imo)
Banish-0/0/0
Desolation-0/0/0 ( takes too much health imo to be worth the trade off)

PASSIVES-
( again like the grenades these are the big deal)

Concentration-5/5/5
Spirit Lore-5/5/5
Conservation-4/5/5
Spirit mastery-5/5/5


Doll-
Attune-5/5/5 everyone should have 5 period. Asap- levels u faster.

Poke-1/3/2
Swarm-3/3/2 (I favor poke and swarm for points as they recharge faster)
Heal-3/3/3
Curse-2/1/1 ( I keep one here and also in shackles as they only do one point damage, and if you are healing and not wanting to steal rep, still allows u to hit enemy for loot)
Scorch-1/1/1
Cure-4/3/2
Grave Shackles-1/1/1
Life Drain-5/5/5 ( this is ur own personal I am gonna suck the life out of you fast and also a healing option when in a pinch)


PASSIVES-
Focus-5/5/5
Spirit Ward-1/1/4


To save on space I will show Es, Phoebe, and then Sao's as in 5/4/5 in that order. Hope will not confuse, if it does let me know please.

You will see some differences, as I stated earlier, due to the charts, rams or abilities of the weapons I have on each pirate. Also, I am still playing around still to see what works best. That is what I suggest for you to do change it up try different things see what works for your style of playing. I would be interested in seeing every ones's set up too and some of your reasoning behind that .
Hope this helps some of you. But just read what the skill or passive does determine how it fits into ur game play best. Some things like Endurance on sword and attune on doll are just a given that they need to be maxed regardless of your game play method.

Thank you Sunny for checking to make sure it was understandable. And than you you are too kind. I wouldn't call it extensive, but always happy to share what I do know. Still think it would be a good idea for us all to compile what we know as group and see what we can learn from each other.
