Buccaneer revamp - Skill build?

Buccaneer Forum Talk about Brawler, Marauder and Buccaneer

Hello there!

I just joined the friendly community of Buccaneers, and i'm very excited to be here!
I do however need a little bit of help..

Could someone tell me the skill build now for buccs? The Buccaneer "Complete guide" is yet to be updated.

Thank you very much! (:

So how does buccaneer blast not fit into the "gameplay of bucc"? Last time I checked, buccaneers were transforming. That doesn't seem very buccaneer like to me. BUT, besides that, isn't buccaneer blast not just a kamehameha that every single super saiyan wanna-be complained that we DIDN'T have?[/quote]

But we have less punching skills D: OUR PUNCHES MAN! Lazers that we don't even fire are an insult to captain planet.
But it's a useful skill that's great to have but Meh it's not like we didn't have long range attacks in fourth in the first place *cough* energy orb and snatch *cough*

New Screen: Rick roll in maple
@froggy1465: We finally have a fast punching attack that is our main 1v1 though. Something that actually generally fits the description of a skilled fist fighter, attacks quickly whilst dealing great damage o3o. If you're referring to the removal of like...double uppercut, we have tornado uppercut which is pretty awesome since your uppercut hits so hard there's a air shockwave following it. We don't have to be transformed for all our best moves now as well, and you actually hit the ground with your fist hard enough to make it explode, with shockwave.

I hate the fact snatch got removed, cuz it was a fun skill and stunned, but it wasn't meant for damage. It's meant for rushing monsters towards you, and orb is touchy at best. Only place it would be good at is a glitched LHC map, and even then it's not that big a difference especially because it's only one hit moves, so it'll cap anyways besides the similar damage to dstrike. That's my observations though.

@1CrazyCleric: Shock waves name was changed ): I know but in total we have one less punching skill.(I'm going to coun't back spin blow as one) Octopunch is amazing. But I wish we had a fast two or three hitting mobbing skill in second instead of tornado uppercut just because tornado reminds of a skill TB's would, have you know? Then there is also the fact we don't have any 1v1 skills till 4th Unlike now where we have one in first, one in second, and one in 4th. Though all of them are slow which makes little sense. One thing I is miss is the old animation for flash fist, I personally all ways like the blue coral our skills had till 4th job, with the change to yellowish orange while using ST.

@froggy1465: Yeah to something stupid like landlubber blast or something that I don't even choose to recognize lol. And you can't count backspin as one cuz it's clearly an elbow haha, but I understand what you mean. Although a multi-hit mob move in 2nd would be cool, it's pointless except for how it helps your accuracy on higher level training maps. The fact that there's no 1v1 skills till 4th is really fine. You mob to level in pretty much every instance up to 4th job where bossing could be considered as a way to level, although it's a bad one. And even then, you just mob in LHC and stronghold so I don't have a problem with it either. The mob moves from 1-3rd are also strong enough to get you through the VERY few times you would NEED a 1v1 move.

@1CrazyCleric: The thing in LHC faster hitting skills help you get the most amount of exp from the party share. With most people getting from 110-120 through LHC. Selfish in saying it on it's own but meh Then there is also if you want to dojo or Pvp before 4th. Where Dps does matter and not our ability to mob

@froggy1465 Energy Orb is a projectile but I wouldn't put it under "ranged attack" since it's range is less than that of Demolition which is melee.

@coalman4444 Once again, where do you get the idea that Buccaneer Blast can't be used in a series (combo as you call it) of attacks? It's chains so fluidly with the other skills that we get.[/quote]
I am just being nit picky. How far does the laser actually go though? Till the end of the map?
I am not going to say anything about Laser being bad until I use it myself. I shouldn't judge until I have used it.

Note that in the same context of the old guide, 4th job has an explanation to go with it. You won't get everything just by looking at the skill build, such as how early FoR is only for HARDCORE bossers. Past 9MW it's pretty much free game other than saving SP for max MW if you can't afford the books. And I'm going to be updating the names once they actually get released in GMS. They got changed apparently, so I'm just waiting to make sure I get the names right. These are currently the pre-change names.[/quote]


The Names of the moves are changed. I edited for you
Hope this helps your build in advance

1st Job
Critical Power --> Shadow Heart

2nd Job
Tornado Upper --> Tornado Uppercut
Endurance --> Perseverance
Mental Clarity --> Dark Clarity

3rd Job
Shockwave --> Landlubber Blast
Willow Defense --> Admiral's Wings
Critical Rage --> Precision Strikes
Double Spiral --> Spiral Assault

4th Job
Energy Blast --> Buccaneer Blast
Fist of Enrage --> Octopunch
Guard Crash -- > Typhoon Crush
Vipersition --> Crossbones

New Screen: Nexon fail
@froggy1465: You're not selfish in wanting to get more exp, but I think you missed what I meant. You still mob in LHC. You use your mob skill far more often than your 1v1 skill. So to get more exp, and level quicker, you mob. And again, our 3rd job mob attack is also one of our better 1v1's, especially for 3rd job in the skill blast.

Below is the area of effect of the skills and you'll be able to compare nicely.

[url=]Buccaneer Blast[/url].
[url=]Dragon Strike[/url].
[url=]Nautilus Strike[/url].

You'll notice Buccaneer Blast actually goes off screen but it has a 695% range.
Whereas Dragon Strike is 400% so it's actually a bit further than 1.7 times of Dragon Strike's horizontal reach.
