Buffs (with a few specific exceptions, such as the witchdoctor buffs which only target adjacent companions/players) will target whatever classes they're designed to boost. If you use a strength buff, it'll target everyone with a weapon boosted by strength and all buccaneer companions. If you use an agility buff, it'll target everyone with a weapon boosted by agility and all musketeer/swashbuckler companions. If you use a willpower buff, it'll target everyone with a weapon boosted by willpower and all privateer/witchdoctor companions.
Buffs will also automatically affect everyone adjacent to the user, regardless of their weapon in the case of a pirate or their class in the case of a companion.
ty for the detailed explanation, i never knew this until i started playing as a privateer. playing through the entire game as a witchdoctor it was never really something that ever came up, and when it did, it didn’t matter
its dependent on if the weapon your using is "staffy" or not. A "slashy/staffy" weapon should give you good damage as well as letting you get scratch buffs from range.
i see, ty!
