"Buccaneers are sturdy warriors who rely on brute strength to overcome their enemies. They wear the heaviest armor and carry the biggest weapons. What Buccaneers lack in grace or finesse they make up for with raw courage. Withstanding enemy attacks is the key to a Buccaneer's strategy." (from Pirate 101 Buccaneer)
Buccaneer's have the ablity to equip huge double handed weapons that can deal a lot of damage. They get a damage bonus from strength. Buccaneer's can use both light and heavy armor adding to there incredable defence and health.
