  • So I don't know if this is the right place to post this but recently I've been seeing these light and I'm not sure what they are. They are like these Red/Pink and Green Flares that spin in the sky. I haven't played in some time so I don't know if it was and update or not.

  • Ahoy maties!

  • Hey my friend and i cant seem to find the voyage specifically for brains bazzar seapost to seapost. We know that if you do like the one that says collect at north star it will take u to spoils of plenty but there isnt one where it says collect from like roaring traders. Thank you in advance.

  • Where are all the masked stranger sketches

  • Hey there people, been playing the new update a lot as per usual. But can't for the life of me get a mission to deliver a rag and bones crate to the Spoils of Plenty seapost.

    I'm assuming it has to be a seapost to seapost mission. But I've tried tons of those too. Anyone had any luck?


  • So I know sekeleton glitch has been something in this game when it was new then seemed good for a while lately I have been having a lot of trouble with it, skeletons not spawning, and mid mission and beginning, very frustrating, are they trying to fix this or anything I can do.


  • Can I get a name for the song that plays in the Arena trailer? I can't seem to find a full, unaltered, blank version online.
    (If any rare employees see this, I'd greatly appreciate it if Rare had like a website or something like that that includes every sound in the game, like a purchasable file of sounds)

  • I've been on the long grind to pirate legend, and I ended up reaching 42/41/41 in the three original companies, and for some time I've been saving up Bilge Rat Doubloons. For some reason Duke's Black Market is showing all three of those letters of recommendation as locked. Is it possible to have bought too many? Is there a limit to how many you can purchase per day or something like that? Thanks for any and all help!


  • Is the skin of the ship pirate Emporium limited?

  • Hello Dear Brothers and Sisters of the Coast , yesterday, with a smile upon my face ,i downloaded the new Update like many of you .
    i started the game up , tried to buy Ancient Coins through the Main Menu but got the message that i was " Unable to buy" . There was more than enough money on my MS account...No worries , i try the ingame shop just above the Order of Souls Tent. The shopkeeper let me choose how much Ancient Coins i wanted , let me buy them but before he hands them over he started to turn an Ouroborous before my eyes for many minutes to come...Result , no Ancient Coins...Real money wasn't taken away ...So maybe server is overloaded, retried again this afternoon but with the same unsuccesful result…

    Are there more Pirates who have this problem, trying to buy but not allowed on the mainmenu and put on an everlasting hold image in the Real Game Shop on top of Order of soul Tent?

  • I went into the new pirate emporium to buy a parrot, only the crimson macaw was all they had. Are the other varieties coming at a later date?

  • Hi all,
    I’m trying to get the flame of fates commendations under my belt. However, I’m having trouble with the Red ‘get killed by a volcano’ one. I’ve tried it like three times now, getting killed by a flaming lava ball, but when I get to the ferry it insists on not giving it to me!
    I’ve done it correct with all the others (this was really annoying when I was trying to get them all at the same time)
    What am I doing wrong?
    Much obliged!


  • I have been repeating Tall Tale #1, The Shroudbreaker, to try to experience the different paths through the story. However, in the five or six successive attempts, I have always got the Scarab Token (taking me to the same island each time). The only other one I have ever got is the Crab Token. I did get a different token in the Insider game, once, long ago, but never in the main game. I understand there are three other tokens I could get, but have never done so in this tale.

    Now, I do understand that if I throw a six sided dice six times in a row, I might get the same number six times; but it is very unlikely (1:7776). Have I just been unlucky, or is this aspect of Tall Tale #1 less random than it should be?


  • So, I was playing with a friend today, we were doing the event of the gold shores or something like that, we got into a Aventure server thinking that we could finally have some peace meanwhile we play, after a while when we were about to finish our quest a galleon comes to chase us, we didn't had anything except a mermaid gem, I told them "I'll give what I have, but please let us alone" we are female players so, the kid about 13 or 14 years old screamed [Mod edited] I told them "then just go to the arena server if you want to fight against other players and let us alone" then the other player of his crew just called me [Mod edited] I was like "seriously?" then the boy said [Mod edited] and it kept calling me bad word and spawn killing me, my friend got away, till they sunk out ship and I spawned elsewhere, very far, we left the server to another one. Is not the first time I encounter this kind of mess up kids, but what it bugs me that they just come in and offend anyone calling them words, that's not cool.

  • Ahoy there, could some one help me find the second medallion please.

  • How the hell do you do this tall tale? After two attempts not understanding any of the clues we decided to follow a guide (not understanding how the pages in the book even remotely relate to the locations) but then got to the bit where, having got the totem, you have to turn all the pillars in the right order to open the vault and two of the four “clues” weren’t even appearing on the columns! Is it bugged or something? We’ve had three attempts at this tall tale now and it just doesn’t make any sense!


  • Hello all! I am looking for help figuring out how many waves there are at active skull forts. Previously I did not pay much attention. However, twice now I have watched a brig wait on the horizon until we beat so many. At which point they come in, sink us, and defeat it in 1 more wave. Is there a set number of waves? There must because both times were different crews and both beat it in one round.

  • I cant find this megalodon, i sail a Lot of milles every day and this shark is imposible to see...


  • So I have completed it once need to do it 4 more times for cannons failed it 4 times now because the vault where the people holding the orb puzzle doesn’t match up at all and have tried every combination this makes me very very mad and there is not a single video out there that has seem to be getting this very upsetting puzzle. Fix this!!!!! Now!!!!!!bolded text

  • I've been trying to find the answer to this and I'm not finding a clear one so I wanted to ask. I just finished the Shroudbreaker chapter completely, I turned in the idol, got my cosmetic hat, and the mysterious stranger told me where to go to start the next chapter.

    What I'm wondering is, since I completely finished the first chapter, if I were to exit the game before picking up the voyage book for the next chapter would I be able to start it when I return? Or do I have to do every chapter in 1 sitting?

    If I end up losing progress I'm gonna be super tilted since I had to deal with multiple people sinking my ship while I did the little puzzles in the cave and I probably just wouldn't bother anymore.

  • Am currently in the process of moving house. If I buy the black powder missions with dubloons can I complete them after the black powder season ends or will i lose the missions and dubloons spent on them?

    I ask this as I can login to the game on a laptop but it is unplayable on it!!! I won't have my gaming rig back until the end of the month.

  • So lately I've been noticing what could possibly be a pattern in Shrouded Ghost attacks, or at the very least increase the odds of one. I was hoping people could share information about there Shrouded Ghost encounters. Below are some important questions I'd like answered.

    What voyage were you doing when it appeared?

    What kind of loot did you have on the boat?

    How long have you played the game?

    What were your levels, or at the very least were you Pirate Legend, or not?

    What kind of boat were you using?

    Was the crew closed, or open?

    What would you say were the levels of your crew, or at the very least were they Pirate Legend, or not? Did they seem like experienced Pirates, or total Noobs.

  • bein trying to update sea of thieves, dark relics
    but the app shows no sign of updating.
    so i decide to reinstall sea of thieves but first i need to uninstall it and i dont know how
    can someone explain


  • Has anyone else been getting the Lavender Beard error message for the past couple of days? I haven't changed anything on my PC but as of Saturday Aug. 10th 2019 I haven't been able to get on.

  • I'm astonished. With 3 other mates we tried to kill Briggsy, but we couldn't, even after all the efforts to kick her a**. So one of us abandonned, and the rest followed.

    But that night, I said to myself : "Let's go kill this cr*p alone, no matter how much time I spend."

    So I went on this adventure, chivering on every little problem that can occur. I could found some treasures on my way, like a reaper chest (I'm french, dunno the name in english) and some other things. I didn't realized that no golds or blue monney went in my purse... until I finished the quest.

    Yes, I killed Briggsy, I was soooo proud, I was scared too, but I finnaly could sleep. Long story short, it was delusional. I was still at 33k gold, 130 blue monney, and, even if I had the achievement, no saber of Briggsy in my weapon inventory. What the hell happened ?

    So I disconnected multiple times, and still could'nt have the saber, nor continue the others quests. They are actually inacessible, and I'm starting to wonder why I should spend more time on this game if the reward is not at the end of the journey.

    #plays Becalmed on accordion#

    Screenshot proof for achievement : https://ibb.co/5jVYXQ6

    PS : again, excuse my english, I'm french ^^'
    PS #2 : If an admin can see my case and give me access to the next quest, I'd be hyper glad, really. cross fingers


  • A couple of weeks ago, there was that thread that announced the new Forum Ranks for us all - based on "Days at Sea", that is to say, Days on the Forum.

    I cannot find that thread now. Can someone link to it, please?

    (The Forum Search option does not seem to work)

  • Missed out on the spartan ship cosmetics or interested in earning the remaining pieces? Play Sea of Thieves now and earn them for your pirate!

  • I've done nearly fifteen dark relic missions, gallon and sloop, and haven't come across one single Bewitching Doll. It's a bit frustrating that I've spent quite a few DUBS just to get this one item and and keep getting everything excpet the Bewitching Doll. I know it's random, but it's ridiculous that it's taken this long


  • Hello,

    Just looking for some help. I started downloading the most recent patch for the game and it error'd out. Following on from this it would just stick on "downloading" but would not actually download any data. I tried restarting the patch and nothing changed, so I uninstalled the game with a view to reinstalling, but again it just sits on "downloading". Other apps/games on windows store download without issue. After having a bit of a google I carried out a WSReset on the store and cleared the cache. I think I reinstalled the store, but its still not downloading the game. It is JUST SoT that won't download. I have tried a few fixes like starting the download and then rebooting, but nothing seems to help and it is only the game I see this on. Has anyone else seen anything like this? If so, how did they get rid of the issue?

  • Can I start a Tall Tales(#2), go find my 5th journal I need, and will that count towards finishing that commendation or do I need to complete the Tall Tale again for it to count?
