Swashbuckling Part 2: Skills and Fighting Schools

The official site for Pirates of the Burning Sea has been updated with the second part of the look at combat in this upcoming MMO.
Welcome back for part two of our in-depth look at our swashbuckling system. Today we’re going to look at the different the Fighting Schools and the skills they contain.

Swashbuckling combat will be, at release, a sword fighting system. We fully intend to expand this system to include other types of armed and unarmed combat, but that will have to wait for the future.
