Guide to the Secret Trainers

We get to tell you what the secret trainers have, how to find them and when they will appear.

The Main Classes


Buccaneers are sturdy warriors who rely on brute strength to overcome their enemies  Their wear the heaviest armor and carry the biggest weapons. What Buccaneers lack in grace and finesse they make up with raw courage. Withstanding enemy attacks is the key to a Buccaneer's strategy. As a Buccaneer, your pirate is strong and tough! You can wear the heaviest armor and wild the biggest weapons in the Spiral. The Buccaneer's signature power, Blade Storm, gives your Pirate an extra attack if you drop an enemy in combat.


Musketeers are expert marksmen who use their mastery of firearms and trick shots to win battles. Musketeers damage their enemies at long range and keep them at a distance with traps and obstacles, denying foes any chance for hand-to-hand combat. The Musketeer Pirate is a tricky one! You specialize in creating traps and obstacles to slow down your enemies so you can snipe them from a safe distance. The Musketeer's iconic power is the Rain of Mortarshells which blankets an area with explosive traps!


Swashbucklers rely on speed and finesse in combat, sneaking up on their foes and striking by surprise, then dodging the enemy's attacks when they finally arrive. They are deadly with a blade, but not nearly as tough as a Buccaneer, sacrificing toughness for damage. Just like their cunning raccoon trainer, Swashbucklers are quick on their feet and skilled with a blade. After training for the Dance of Steel power, Swashbucklers can attack every enemy around them at the same time.


While weak in a direct fight, Witchdoctors has amazing skills up their sleeves. They have hexes that can weaken their foes, shoot blasts of fire that strike at range and summon minions to fight for you such as the Bone Drake and Skeletons. They also can convince the enemy to join your team, teleport within the battleboard and drain the enemy's health to heal themselves. They are a great team member to have by your side.



Privateers are born leaders, commanders who can rally their troops to victory through the most desperate of battles. Privateers can recruit more Companions than any other class, and their power focus on boosting their Companions' capabilities and healing them in the thick of the fight. It's good to be friends with a Privateer Pirate because their specialty is supporting and healing their allies and Companions. They can even go so far as to heal all their Companions with Reinforce power received through training.
