Some may find the information in this section subjective or irrelevant.

Bidley is basically Cove's counterpart of Gelu. But he only upgrades Pirates and Corsairs, while Gelu can upgrade both Archers and Wood Elves, thus having less creatures to upgrade. Upgrading them to Sea Dogs is expensive, yet reduces need in upgrading Frigate (which is even more expensive!), gets you them faster and makes early game easier. With a group of Sea Dogs you can quickly clear many neutral creatures on a map, during early game. Moreover, he has only Advanced Offense, so he may choose seven secondary skills.
