Finished my first playthrough with a couple of the new skills (weredigglery and piracy) and while the Werediggle skills are nice.. Piracy just simply isn't worth taking. The 75% counter skill seems really overpowered, until you reach level 5 or 6 and every monster and his grandmother crit hits you, rendering your 100% counter chance useless. The black spot does not work. At all. It does.. zilch. We know plunder doesn't work either. The Mists of the Corsair work, but if you're trying to combine it with swashbuckling, they don't work in tandem.
