“It isn’t easy protecting your loved ones, you know.

I don’t want you suffering the same sadness I experienced.”

 

When I were but a wee lass, I was playin’ ‘bout me father’s treasures and

just so happened to stumble upon a right fine weapon!

Twirlin’ it about, like a right fool, I tapped on the trigger and sent its harpoon sailin’.

‘Course at that moment me father just had to be comin’ to check on his treasure, didn’t he?

Aye, the memory still pains me to recall.

It was the harpoon piercing through me father’s side…

I ran and wrapped me arms around him, blood-soaked though he was, and bawled me eyes out.

But me father just gave me head a quiet pat, never once hurlin’ blame.

 

“To hold a weapon in your hand is to say you’re ready to harm another.

If you don’t wish to harm others, you mustn’t hold a weapon.

But know that you won’t be able to protect the ones you love.”

 

I be just a child then, and too young to understand those words.

Ye see, I was more on the side of bein’ protected rather than doin’ the protectin’ back then.

But still, it did shock me to know that I had caused me father harm with me very own hands.

 

Even at fifteen, after striking out on me own, I didn’t yet savvy me father’s words.

Loved ones? Ones I wanted to protect? I had nothing of the sort.

I just me own self to look out for. That’s all.

And me treasure, of course. And me ship.

 

And then, life threw ‘em at me feet.

The ones who took me whole life, me whole code, and flipped ‘em on its head.

Louder than Oquilla’s seagulls, I spotted ‘em fearlessly raidin’ a Crow’s merchant ship.

Aye, enemies indeed they be...yet, something kept me lookin’ on.

 

Next our paths crossed, they were “working out disagreements” with another pirate crew.

I listened to ‘em angrily queekin’ from across the water, defending their mistreated matey.

I watched ‘em rush in with reckless abandon, outnumbered though they be.

It left me feelin’ quite strange.

And even after bein’ beaten black and blue, they retreated with a

“Just you wait! Yer faces will be twice as beaten as ours next time!”

 

Deep in thought, I set anchor near their base and uncasked a pint of grog beneath the moonlight to aid me mind along.

Just why couldn’t I take me eyes off 'em?

I knew they were gonna lose, but maybe I couldn’t help but be taken in by how they kept fightin’ for their fellow crewmates.

Me mind wandered, wondering if such a crew would ever fight for me that way.

After passing the night that way, me mind was set.

I’ll make ‘em me maties!

 

At sun-up, I drew anchor and made me way toward their base.

‘Twould be a lie to say me heart weren’t thunderin’ against me chest.

‘Twas the first I could recall askin’ someone to be me crewmate.

I wet my lips and hollered out.

 

'Maties! I’m coming aboard!'

 

Me nerves got the best of me, and I accidentally beached the ship...

Somethin’ about me act must’ve impressed ‘em, as they excitedly climbed aboard and named me cap’n.

Haha, they were as endearin’ as imagined.

 

10 years apart now, and their love and loyalty be unwavering still. 

I hadn’t ever had such devoted affection from me own kin. 

Now I savvy me father’s words from back then, I think. 

I’d take up any weapon to protect you all. 

‘Course, you’ll be me maties through thick and thin forever, aye?

 

“Me beloved crew!

Follow me lead, open fire!”

 

Corsair’s Awakening Combat Style

 

▲ A "Cap'n's Orders: Open Fire!" into "Cap'n's Orders: Cease Fire!" skill combo.

 

After securing the Slippery Scallywags Den and recovering the Heirloom of the Crow, Corsair leads the Slipper Scallywags in battle with her newly-obtained Patraca.

 

With Patraca—a weapon imbued with the dense mist of the Crow’s Nest—in her hands, Corsair can easily rush down enemies while surrounded by its mist. Distant enemies aren’t safe either, as she can pierce them with her harpoon from afar, dragging them into her mist and neutralizing them.

 

And of course, as the beloved captain of the Slippery Scallywags, she can give out orders for her crew to follow. Her loyal Scallywags are armed to the teeth with cannons, and ready to launch an artillery barrage the second Corsair gives the command. All this allowing Corsair to control the battlefield and surprise her enemies.

 

Any foe unfortunate enough to run into Corsair stands no chance of escaping her mists, especially with her loyal crew at her side.

 

 

Corsair’s Main Awakening Skills


Spare No Quarter!

Throws her rope into the air, lifting her up and surrounding her blade in mist, as she comes down and slices her foes.


Sun-shielder Patraca 

Throws her rope towards the sun, floating mid-air, before firing her harpoon.

Enemies hit by the harpoon will be neutralized by her mists.



Ocean's Allure

Reels back her launched harpoon, luring enemies into the mist.


Cap'n's Orders: Open Fire!

Lifts her weapon into the air, giving the signal to open fire.

Following her orders, the Scallywags fire their ship's massive anchor at the enemy.

Look forward to the swash-buckling antics of Corsair and the Slippery Scallywags on August 11, 2021!

@Tropicalos lol imagine going from the best PVP (yet unbalanced due Devs laziness or incompetence ) to a mediocre copy paste of D&D with a FF Skin and a monthly sub__scription of 12 $ ...

@Tropicalos Sad part is people drop more in bdo than the $14.99 a month from ffxiv. And they get no real end game content. Both are not so great games but we play what we have choice wise. BDO looks good, FFXIV has content to grind...dno what the real
true win is here.

@Tropicalos eww FFXIV where PvP doesn't even exist and the graphics are from the 1990's. True story I did everything in FFXIV in 8months of gameplay. I'll stick to BDO which has never ending content and updates.

o/ bye

@EternalSnow Eh yikes bro, u cant even compare ff and bdo, 2 different type of games. and saying that ff has no content in comparison to bdo , you are ether trolling or delusional or even beyond that. just keep farming same mob for one more year if thats
your content instead of making clown of yourself . Coming from someone who played both games for quite a while , and still do because playstyle is different and goal is different.

@DREAM All these snowflakes complaining about PVP in FFXIV must be those who cannot actually PVP without P2W and ganking farmers and lifeskillers. Yeah that is real 'prosauce'.

@Acmenrra LOL best PVP ? :D :D You forgot to speak about amazing graphics and amazing combat in PVE :D RNG Casino system is absolutely allright :D and of course there is a content :D burning GPU every day on afk lifeskill or training :D :D bravo champion
keep up defending BDO :D :D And yeah, about that monthly payments :D :D I am pretty sure even one year of sub on FFX will cost me less than 3 months of BDO, cuz VPS, Tent, horse coupons, fairy, pets, outfits, maids , weight, inventory slots its all for free.
:D :D Imagine game, where ingame tent is more expensive than RL tent :D :D. And when they finally releasing class, what is actually little bit interesting, they will release this as awakening :D SO YEAH I will fcking go to give my money to someone who actually
deserve it.

@DREAM 100% you did not do everything in 8 months, I'd like to see your entire collection of all the relics weapons then. You probably just did the story quests. Probably didn't bother with casino or their events they always have going on, or even their
raids lol.
