    What Sea of Thieves brought us in 2018 from @EGGamer13


    What Does This Mean?

    Sea of Thieves is a game that includes both PvE and PvP elements, it's a combination of both and your voyages will be different each time you log in depending on your chosen goals, the threats (including other players) you encounter and the ships and crews you choose to sail with!


    For new pirates, that first voyage can be daunting so we've collected together a series of hints and tips in an easy to read thread, from some of the most experienced pirates on the seas!


    Where to Start?

    Some great videos that give an overview of some of the most important aspects of the game can be found here and many others on the Sea of Thieves and Rare Ltd Youtube channels

    Launch Day is upon us and Sea of Thieves is going to be sailing into peoples hands throughout the day.

  • My name is Zombie Scown and I know my way around the ships and some lands. Been playing this game since closed beta and have been happy to see that the game is growing ever more exciting.

    I do well in a crew and enjoy a good adventure all around. If you happen to see me in a sloop alone don't be afraid to say hi and perhaps maybe we can team up.

    Pleasure to meet you all.

  • Heyo hayley here, Played this on day 1 then went away so I'm rusty and lost. I'm happy to help with anything i just have to learn. Kinda tired of joining a random group then being put in the brig before i can do anything ^^, Looking for a pc/discord crew cause xbl app doesn't like my mic ^^,

  • Capn Corpse otherwise known as Decompose be shovin off fer the chance at pirate legend. I be needin a crew who thirst for adventure n spoils of the lands n treasures of men. A fleet may be greater still but we'll take it slow with the sea legs.

  • ..... but I have to say howdy all you good mates/pirates! I'm an ol' school Cowboy Pirate that so far has had nothing but great fun in this game and unfortunately some bad times with the PC hackers and please don't question my opening introduction... I'm just very frustrated with them, I know the difference. I was trying to play the arena part of the game and was having great fun until nothing would work with my controller. I'll figure it out... thanks for reading my post and thank you for killing and robbing me in the future... if you haven't already... aimbot or not... yea I'm very verbal in this world, having been a beta tester for many years will bring that out, but anyway, peace and may you dig up the experience you so deserve.! I'm probably making a lot of enemies with this post... but at least it's honest as an Ol' Cowboy Pirate can be!! ;)


  • Hey everyone, my name is Max (Banana), im 16 years old and I got this game yesterday and looking for people to play.. pm me on discord if you want to play! Banana#9439
    ignore my gamertag xD I wanted to change it for a more pleasant name but I saw it was 10 euros, and didn't want to spent it for changing my gamertag... Little too much for me.

  • Since August of 2017 my better half has patiently endured my love for SOT. She has seen my elder children and grandchildren join in the community as I plugged along amassing thousands of hours in this game. This morning my youngest daughter (21) and my wife scrolled through hundreds of characters before picking the perfect one! A zesty golden skinned beauty with a million dollar smile! She loaded in at Sanctuary and it took her an hour to conquer the tutorial. I laughed through a couple of her drowning episodes and actually had to catch the controller and stop it from hitting the floor on the first one. I enjoyed watching her clumsily work through the controls as she patiently asked every merchant every question available. At the point the tutorial asked her to purchase something at the clothes shop her face lit up as she was asking for my guidance to the clothes shops whereabouts. When she got there she refused to buy anything because she didn't like the hairstyles. So she's now basically walking around the outpost with the "buy clothes" note stuck to the middle of her screen.!
    The 21 year old takes over:
    My wife had taken a phone call so my daughter took over the controls and was naturally 20% better at moving around than the wife. I got her to launch sail and she headed for Lone Cove where she found 3 Emeralds, A chest of sorrows, a disgraced and a trinket. I helped her with the Statues for she was struggling with them. We then hit a shipwreck and found a marauders and a villainous along with some fish that we cashed at Northstar Seapost. So to avoid a storm my daughter sails SE and ends up picking up more loot at Snake Island before heading to Plunder Outpost.
    The wife returns: At Plunder after selling everything the two of them sat in the clothing store admiring the dresses and boots. They discussed what to purchase but couldn't make up their minds (like I've never seen this in real life before). Then it happened.......... The "bearded out"! I laughed so hard at the both of them as anger stewed in their eyes.😂 It was poetic! I remember them sitting in a closed closet Indian style 17 years earlier arguing over what my daughter would wear on her first day of pre-k! It was the first of many disagreements about what to wear. Here 17 years later it's still happening in a video game!😂😂😂😂😂

  • Hi ! my name is Louis and i'm a 21 french student. I just got the game and already played with a few people but still looking for a crew to play with. I'd be glad to help any crew in any way i can and have some fun :). I'm available on weekends and every evening during week days. You can add me on discord if you're interested @ Resilience#5676. Have a nice day !


  • Ahoy! My Name Is "Vindicate" Doc West.

    I've come to the Sea of Thieves to unravel the mysteries of this strange world. Though, I aspire to be a bit more... Daring, as someone in a tavern once told me.

    Me interests consist of exploring, making sure goods are delivered on time, every time, and the fabled "Athena's Fortune" that lies somewhere in the Sea of Thieves!

  • Ahoy! Je m'appelle Mock#1152 (Discord) ou TommyBoyIO (SOT/XBox)

    J'ai rejoins la mer des voleurs pour me détendre, jouer les marchants et chasser des créatures incroyables !

    J'aimerai pouvoir naviguer avec un équipage de marchant et d’établir des escales pour l'alliance toujours plus intéressantes !

  • Hi, im a new sea rum sailor under the black and bones flag!! My name is Linkcelot (linkcelot#3607 in discord).

    Eey, soy un nuevo marinero del ron bajo la bandera oscura con huesos!! Mi nombre es Linkcelot (linkcelot#3607 en discord)

    Nos vemos en el eterno azul!!!!


  • I'm done with this annoying [mod edit] of a game. Can't even do the simple festival of the damned commendations without some idiot deciding to climb onto my ship and kill me over and over again. Unless they decide to patch in some form of singleplayer only mode I will be uninstalling and letting people know just how terrible this community really is.

  • Ahoy! My Name Is BloodMeteor74

    I've come to the Sea of Thieves from the fabled shores of the PS4 to claim my place in these vast untamed waters!

    Me interests consist of the Lost secrets of the sea, scouring the waves for Poseidon's most precious prizes, and serenading the Sirens with songs of mine own!

    I am just getting into the game and getting started but down for adventures, let me know!

  • Ahoy! Me name be SaltyRollocks.

    I've come to the Sea of Thieves to pilfer & plunder me weasely guts out...as it were. SHARRRK! Oh...there isn't one? Oh...

    Me interests consist of rum, the sea (love the sea I do), sea shanties, firing me gun, swinging from the yardarm cutlas in hand, malarky on the main deck, shenanigans onshore and booty! Be there treasure or adventure on the high seas, that's where I like to be. Oh, lost me right leg below the knee to a devilishly hungry shark too. I'm after 'e as I'd like to be reunited with it.

    I'm in the market...as it were, to join a fine crew as sailing by me onesie is proving somewhat problematic in me current endeavor. I be new to these waters, but, a firm hand on the mast.

    Sincerely,
    SaltyRollocks

    P.S. Got rum?


  • Looking for active crew mates of all skills.. weather you’re a Pirate Legend or just starting out, as long as the need for gold is strong this be the place for you!! We even have a Facebook page under the same name. Feel free to join and start a new adventure in search of the illustrious Booty!

  • Ahoy from Appalachia

    My girlfriend and I have been playing SoT since I believe the first day it came out last year [I remember being all excited to play and then not being able to connect due to all of the server issues]. My 9 year old son wasn't really into the game until Forsaken Shores came out, and now he loves it and has been counting down the days until the update at the end of this month. Since then, the three of us have been sailing together on a brig. For Christmas I got the game for my brother and he's been hooked since. He even got his girlfriend her own xbox so they can play together. Unfortunately my brother lives far away so I only get to see him a few times a year. I'm glad I got him this game because all winter it gave us a nice "family get together" almost every weekend.


  • Ahoy!

    New to the sea, already tangled with the Kraken (what a beast) and making some gold. Always on the look out for honest, none back stabbinz crew mates who may want to invite me to join a crew or fleet?

  • Hi all!

    I've recently picked up Sea Of Thieves after getting a new laptop - the first decent PC I've had, that could play games, since Half Life was out!

    I've been playing games since before the days of Jet Pac, so I'm getting on a bit, but love games as much as I ever did.

    I'm in the UK and tend to be around in the evenings for an hour or two, plus any other time I can grab over the weekends :)

    See you on the sea!

  • Hi everyone,

    I'm totally new to the game (I'm writing this while I wait for the game to finish download :P). I have no experience, except some YouTube let's plays... If this can be considered experience... :P I intend on starting a little solo game for now, but I'm more than willing to quickly move to multiplayer, for which the game seems to be meant in the first place!

    I speak english and french. I would love to meet some new and not so new captains at sea! I would consider myself a serious gamer. I always try to exploit the game into as much immersion as possible. I appreciate when people are teaching me, and I'm very much into helping newcomers when I came to master the game as well.

    Cheers!

  • Hi all,
    I’ve recently got myself an Xbox and I’ve been gagging to give Sea of Thieves a good go... I’m usually a solo kinda guy but having read up online, it seems solo in this game is considered fairly difficult and so I’m hoping to join forces with one or two other players to enjoy the game together.
    I’m a 32 year old male from the UK, who mostly games in the evenings (anytime between 7pm - mid night)
    Looking for people of a similar age and chilled out attitude to enjoy the game with, male or female and ideally from the UK.
    I’ve never played it before so more than happy to join forces with someone else in the same noobie “boat” as me, or if someone more experienced fancies taking me under their wing and show me the ropes... even better!
    Thank you all x


  • It is time you all knew of the FATTEST AMONGST YOU!


  • Hi all
    I’m new to the game in fact I’m new to Xbox (ps4 player but wanted to try some xbox exclusives as I’m bored). I’m 36 playing most days in the uk.

    I have been playing the game for around 2 hours and so far it seems like a good game that I could put a lot of hours into, sadly so far I really have no idea what’s going on in the game.

    I turned it on and chose a pirate, I then did the “go to key guy” and the “buy a new clothing item” and then it said go to your ship and that’s where it all got weird!
    I was on my ship and there were no more totorial tips so I didn’t know what to do, I put one of the contracts i got into the table but it didn’t show me where to go or explain what the contract was, I then found the map which didn’t show any waypoint until I clicked on one so had no idea where to go or what to do.
    Before I had a chance to try and figure things out 3 more people joined and started shouting orders so I just did what was being voiced out - like raise sails, head north etc.
    After visiting a few islands (these people seemed to know where to go) and seeing them running around with chests while I was constantly running around trying to keep up with them and dying or getting lost lol - these 3 people all had “pirate legend” as a title so I thought I was in good hands.
    After a little while and still none the wiser of how to find chests or where to go or even why it’s being done except to buy new clothes I killed 2 red named skeletons (all the enemies are skeletons or snakes so far) oh and a big shark and then got a message from one of the guys saying “if you don’t start doing something we will brig you”, a bit confused seeing how for the last 2 hours I had been running around killing things loading the canons while under a shark attack, bailing water, raising sails, changing the angle, lowering the anchor etc etc (my pirate must be the fittest pirate ever to exist!) like I said I was confused so messaged the sod back and quit the game - if all of the seasoned players are like this then I don’t know if I can be bothered to even try to figure the game out.

    Anyway any tips would be most appreciated or even just someone to hold my hand 😂😂

    I can sail the ship no problems, I’ve worked out that every island seems to have a chest or 2 hidden somewhere and some bounties (red named skeletons) that drop skulls when killed and that’s about it. I still have no idea if your character levels up?, do you actually have your own ship or is it just a randomly generated one each time you log in?, are the weapons more powerful the more they cost?, are the islands level based?

    So many questions......... I’m sorry if all this is answered elsewhere on the forums but I just thought instead of spending hours searching for answers to each question I could just post a general “my story so far” and beg for help

    Thanks all


  • Salut à tous, quelqu'un saurait il si c'est encore possible d'avoir les skins ferryman pour l'épée, le pistolet et le tromblon ? Si oui comment ?

  • Soy nuevo alquien sabe como se escribe en l juego .

  • My name is Captain Echo (or first mate Echo if you're more the Captain type), named as such because I can still hear the ring of the blunderbuss that took me right eye.

    I'm looking for a fun bunch of pirates who wish to sail the open seas, raise their reputations and earn themselves some gold!

    PVP is not my forte, but I'll defend me ship if need be. English speaking only, with a microphone if need be. Arr!


  • Hello there, im new to the game. this game spiked my intrests as i have seen videos on it but i dont have anyone to play with, if you wanna help me out in the game and maybe make a new friend id be happy to join

  • Hello , Dear Pirates , New Bloods and Seasoned Brothers and Sisters of the Coast alike.

    The last few weeks have been very important for Rare . They opened up the Pioneer Program and turned it into an Insider Program in wich every Pirate above 18 is welcome to join and shine his or her light over the future features that will , once again , enrich this game greatly. The First Anniversary was ,of course , celebrated in Grandeur , like it should be.
    The Higly anticipated , and awaited ( * Moron...you write two of the same things , or you in dumbo mode again? ...o, excuse me , now i made a mistake , you're ALWAYS in dumbo mode, fool), Mega Update that will soon arrive will bring many smiles to the Faces of the Massive PirateFleet that roams our Beloved Sea...

    But...Since the Forum has taken a decisive turn towards focussed Testing in the Insider Category , i kind of start to miss the Community Feel that i so love...i'm no leader , more a maggot ( * Oh, what is this ? For the first time since many months ,our fool starts to write truths, where are we gonna write this? - Here ,of course , Sunshine * Finally awoken, Captain Tearface? - And not a moment too soon, it seems , thrashing on George again, hey? Keep it at least a bit civil, Sunshine * As you wish, Captain) so i decided to let the wave pass or let one of the Community Celebreties restart that Community Feel...

    But the person i had in my mind is not been seen for months now, i wonder more and more what has happened...But no dark thoughts, not everybody has the life of a Hermit , like me...

    Now , there are so many new Pirates that landed on our Outpost ,there are also alot of Seasoned Pirates that have finally, because of the Insider Program , decided to contribute their thoughts , wich...is Great!
    But...Who are they ? What drives them? How do they play ? How do they look towards this game and the ones they come across?...
    These and so many questions haunt my mind, it is impossible to remember hundreds of thousends of Pirates but still ,i would like to stretch out my hand and hopefully a few welcoming hand will shake mine...

    Now , what i ask , if...i may is...What makes you come back to this game that officially has reached the age of 1 year, and in the shadow is running for more than two years , Alpha's included...

    No , my Dear New or YoungBlood , i haven't forgetten you , i also want to know what has brought you here ...Was it the trailer that convinced you , was it because your Friends adviced you to it , or a magazine ? And what has catched your eye straight away , let us say , what has made that you probably play this tomorrow?...

    See, now that's what i want to know, i don't want to know yer real name , your studies ,hobbies , and all other private things , i only want to know what you love and like about the game and all that surrounds it...i would be a bad person if i would only ask something from you ,when i keep a lid on myself ( * Oh, please do that , keep that lid on yerself , make your mug close and never open it again, i beg off ye....moron)...

    So here i go, oh yes ,i'm sorry if this writing is already pretty lenghty but my Good old Mom always told me :" George , why do you use ten words if you can colour and enrich yer story by adding another 90 words to say the same thing?"...Well, i learned about SOT after a coincedense boring surfing on You Tube. Memorizing old games like Sea Dogs , i wanted to know if there were developers who dared to bring the Pirate theme again...i stumbled on a very early Trailer for E3 2016, or was it 2015? i'm not sure...

    i first thought i was seeing an Indie title untill... a girl pirate ran before the main , and unnamed , character , she was cartoony but oh so detailed . She walked to the beach and we followed her and then my eyes were catched by a massive ship , a Galleon , but what was even more pulling on the Iris of my eye was , the Sea on wich this ship was resting...This water was the most detailed and "lively" water that i had ever seen...Months went by and i found this very Forum...A beautiful, Friendly time revelated towards me and i felt , for the first time in my life , very good amongst all these smart but forgiving people...

    The game came , first in Alpha form, on wich the Sea jumped on me like a crazed Bloodhound , ready to disconnect my throat with his shiny teeth, but the dog washed my face and gave me so much good feel and " Magic"...

    The game opened itself to me and showed me layers i never expected from a game that looks like a casual game if you throw a fast but unfocussed eye upon it... i grew in this game , not as a skilled Pirate , wich i never will be , but i grew in the crew , i grew as a person...i dared to show my inner personality ,that hadn't seen sunlight for many ,many years , and Clumsy George was finally reborn...

    A beautiful gift , hey ? Oh , but i would be a lowlife if i wouldn't return the favor that was granted upon me by so many Great Souls of the Sea , so with my little talents ( * Talents ? Where ? What have i missed ? Talents , really? ...Ooooh, that talent ...The " bean Talent" , off course ...uhm, how do i write politely , The ability to let the sail catch "wind" where there is no "earthly" wind , " That talent ", yeah you have talent for that...You little old stinker...) i tried to bring a laugh upon many a Pirate . My accent and the ability to mimick other countries accents have given me a Key to open up a lot of Hearts...Many Pirates started silently on the crew , but like a woodpecker i hammered upon their ears and skulls untill they opened up communications...

    After that ...Friendrequest flew like Seagulls over the waves...This game has so many hidden layers , the game itself , but there are also keys that open up rooms from your very own personality ,that you never knew you even had those...
    Now , my biggest Joy , in this game is to go fully , openHearted and open armed towards the Unknown Pirate and hopefully bring a smile to him or her , to young or old , and to show that there is more than " Kill or be Killed " in this game...For me this game is a Heaven for Improvisors...

    But what is it for you ? What does this game mean for YOU. What makes you to select Sea of Thieves above other games you have . You there , yes , you my young Pirate Friend that has taken up Sea of Thieves for the first time , yesterday , you too are allowed to tell us what has lured you to these waters and wich Siren is singing in yer ears in a tune that will make you come back this evening?...

    Come on, Dear Pirates , don't let me hang here ....Don't let this Community drift off to solely test , the future of this game , but let us grow back towards eachother with this little initiative of mine that may be only a pebble big , but once a little pebble ticks to a bigger and smarter rock ,then maybe the ,once so loved , Community Feel may rekindle again...

    Sorry for the long read ( * You liar , you love a long write ,even if you can't write one English word without making the usual spelling and grammar msitakes...moron). But please , i really want to know all the incentives of other Pirates because i think that every person is unique and so are his or her vision towards this game too...

    i thank you upfront for reading and i thank you very much if you would like to contribute what you love or what makes you come back to this game... Go for it...Please?
