This is an Official Player's Guide from the Pirates Online Website.
Voodoo abilities come from objects charged with supernatural power. In Pirates of the Caribbean Online, this means the Voodoo Doll and Staff. Your skill level with these objects –– attacking a foe with a hex or healing a matey with a spell –– is measured by your Voodoo Weapon Skills.
Attacking with Voodoo
Voodoo has great advantages in group attacks. While your mateys attack enemies with pistols or grenades from a distance, you can use Voodoo to slow that enemy down, drain its vitality, or put it in shackles.
Healing with Voodoo
The power of Voodoo is not purely offensive. You can use spells on your mateys to cure their ills and heal their injuries. Just like you use hexes for attack, you can use spells over and over on a single target to give maximum effect.
Voodoo Power Costs
Your Voodoo Power is the measure of your ability to cast spells and hexes, and you expend power every time you wield a Voodoo weapon. Keep a keen eye on your Voodoo Power meter on your Vitals Key so that you avoid encountering enemies without the ability to attack or heal your mateys.
