Hoodoo Magic

Madame Vadima [Witchdoctor Trainer]


Hoodoo (ie. conjure) is basically a Africian-American traditional folk magic. It incorporates practices from African's, Native Americans, and some European practices and grimoires. The goal of hoodoo is to allow people access to supernatural forces to improve their daily lives by gaining power in many areas of life, including luck, money, love, divination, revenge, health, employment, and necromancy.

Witchdoctors extensively use herbs, minerals, parts of animal's bodies, and a person's personal possessions for their rituals/conjuring. They can contact dead ancestors and spirits and conjure them.
They often use a "effigy" or as you know it, a voodoo doll to perform a spell on someone or control them.


There is a difference between voodoo and hoodoo.
Voodoo is a religion while hoodoo is a group of magical practices. Both having origins in the west and central Africa.

Witchdoctors in Pirate101 will use their Hoodoo magic to hex and curse enemies from afar, conjure up dead spirits to aid them in battle, and finally help their crew by casting charms and magic on them.

Will ye be a hoodoo usin' witchdoctor? Or do ye fancy one of th' other classes?
Write below which class ye will pick when Pirate101 arrives! Me' think ye can see which I will choose!

See you all soon in the skyways.
