  • Ascended

    Summoned water and fire within an hour of release, both maxed 5* immediately, tried pairing fire with Malaka which was nice considering I don’t the Oracle!
    Though water pirate captain all round is better as it’s utility fits in more teams and situations.

    I won’t actually be using either of these after today but it was fun playing testing.

    • Fernando

      Depends on the Oracle… I got the water one and it is irreplaceable

      • Spongebuddy

        I am pretty sure he is talking about the Wind Oracle because that is the one that has synergy with bomb teams.

  • Nick.Nh

    I got wind pirate cap. I saw the rune rec as fatal revenge. But since his damage is low i thought id not use him as a basr attacker. Instead i have violent revenge to make use of that atk bar decrease and defense break as often as i can. And he seems to be working well when runed with vio rev. You can try it see how it works and maybe put it in the rune rec 🙂

  • John

    Just wondering if the water Pirate captains last skill puts a defence debuff on all the oponents or just 1?

    • Megumi

      i just got him today, immidiately awake him and now rune him with fatal and accuracy but now thinking of changing it. His third skill after maxed had 100% accuraccy so i think rune him with focus is not really neccesary. But now still considered about his rune set 🙁

      • TigerfoxRR

        You are confusing skill proc chance with resist check. Skill proc is a two stage process. First stage is skill proc chance. This only comes into play for skills that have a % to happen. After you get water pirate to 100% his skill will proc. But then a resist check is made. This is where acc comes into play. The monsters resistance is checked against your monsters accuracy. If they pass the resistance check the skill is resisted.

  • Pythoness

    Is there a different rune set up that can be used for lower level players? I cannot get revenge runes in Hell Mode yet and even Hard mode is difficult for me. I summoned him within hours of the update and have been patiently waiting for rune recommendations I can actually use but so far this is the only recommended setup I can find.

    • John

      you can use focus ruins on them or energy but focus would be better

      • Tryxxi^.^

        They’re called RUNES not RUINS!!

  • I love my carrack he is fast, has a good atk power and with my Malaka and Jojo is a beast in arena!

  • DoubleBarrel

    For Barque, awaken then put violent/blade att% cri rate att% and let him run wild with his 3rd skill.

  • Light Pirate Awaken is Brick, not Brig.

    • Awakened*



  • I got Dark Pirate, I’am not sure if I am going to make it food or just keep it, any suggestions?

    • oyocop



      skill up for water.

  • Asmodai

    well obviously whoever writes this knows nothing…. Water pirate… Only and I mean ONLY set he should ever run is swift focus speed hp accuracy. Hey let’s go first buff and debuff (at the same time might I add) then proceed to wreck? Nah that doesn’t make sense lets rune recommend fatal focus cuz that makes more sense.

    • Regret

      Nope. Swift/focus is only one set usable on Galleon. One of the top players on Asia runs him vio/broken spd/cd/atk and once he uses 3rd skill his 2nd skill will hit in the realm of around 18k. If you want to correct someone, make sure you don’t come off sounding like an arrogant moron.

    • Gipple

      Mine is fatal/revenge spd att%acc and I hit 100% acc. So I need to change to focus, I guess since I’m wrong.

    • fin

      well, i’m aiming for his utility, not his damage.
      so i put swift/focus with spd/hp/acc. i have 94% acc on my Galleon, but sometime his skill got resisted ~.~. still working to make it 100%.

      he make a great combo with my Akhamamir (wind ifrit) 3rd skill.
      love this monster.

  • J4cky

    Light Pirate Captain’s leader skill is wrong – it’s 40% accuracy, not attack power.

    • J4cky

      …and the formulation of the 3rd skill is confusing, ingame it’s “attacks an enemy” not “attacks enemies” which may lead to the misunderstanding that it is an AoE.

    • Summoner

      Ty changed.

  • CreamHonorFace

    Do you think that you could make a section for Guild Wars and ToA? I think that there are some monsters that are good in ToA and GW that are not necessarily good in Dungeons and Arena, respectively.

  • LawnyToast

    Would I be crazy to try out violent/nemesis (spd/att%/acc) on Galleon? I feel like that would get you more actual turns than violent/revenge. Correct me if it is better to just have him use his regular attacks more so than his abilities… or if nemesis is just bad.

  • Rayhalzen

    hai summoner.
    next hoh will be light pirate captain.
    is it worth to make him *6?
    or just food for another pirate captain?

    • Summoner

      I would keep one and feed the rest to Galleon the water pirate. As for 6 star, not sure. 😛

      • Rayhalzen

        yeah, I will do the same until I get Galleon lol.
        Thanks by the way.
        I love this website. Great work! ?

  • Aria

    lol for Galleon is having 2 defense debuffs considered a con? more chances to keep it up

  • *MissMurder*

    hey summoner, I just got a galleon. YAY!~
    from those rune recommendation, which built would you suggest that fits all purposes?


  • Katie

    Do vampire runes work for a five star Carrack (fire pirate captain)? If not, why?

    Thank you for any advice you may give!

  • TkkgFan95

    Can someone explain me the bonueffect of Karacke “Detonation SHot” – this attack sets of the bomb effect – does it mean it triggers bomb effects f.e. Jojo or Kobold Bomber?

  • Hjiryon

    I’m reading the recommendations for the water pirate captain, and I have to wonder:
    Swift/focus is not recommended to push him to go first with time to loot?

    I run him with that, and spd/atk%/acc% at the moment, and it’s working pretty well.
    Somewhat decent runes, and he’s at 216 speed, 77% accuracy and not-entirely-bad damage. Seems to work in a yellow comp.

  • Cody

    if you rune carrack with rage/blade with good crit damage substats with atk% slot 4 or crit damage% on. slot 4 his 3rd skill can be devestating even without any bombers. I’ve one hit chasun, veros, and other powerful monsters with 3rd skill. and then you add a bomber or two to the mix, the damage can be insane. just gotta make sure the bomber(s) are faster than carrack. my jojo bomb combined with carrack 3rd skill has gotten 40k+ damage on crit hit.

  • FlintLock

    its sad seeing so many people have bad opinions on frigate, he is amazing
