    The Great Fishing PSA



  • A single pet costs £5 here or £8 if you buy the third option. But is it worth it? I was thinking of getting the monkey but I don't want to get one if they just sit in a cage or something.


  • Hi,
    I was buying letters of recommendations the other day but realised that i could only buy one level on each trading companies. When i bought one each they automatically locked themselves. I went around to every outpost and it was still locked i waited a day and then played and they were all still locked.
    Can someone please help me unlock them.
    Thanks

    Are you stuck? In need of a helping hand? Or have some pearls of wisdom to share with others?

    Well, look no further...

    And remember, if you are offering help, I would also advise not to give the whole game away, and so, in the spirit of exploration and adventure... try by cryptic with your help and give to the point answers.

    (Ps - If we have redirected you here, please don't be offended but we are trying to gather all the hints/clues and tips into one easy to read post)

  • i see both questions and awnser in both of them
    and noone has seen this?
    for example: @musicmee posted a topic called looking for arena hints and tips? in voyage help

    if some one needs help they might look here first but i just find it weird...
    why tho?

  • SO I havent played in awhile so a lot of things have been added but I noticed the controls have changed and been made complicated! Like how the hell do you select maps now. I have to hover over the map and then hit escape jsut to select a map. Same as for the item wheel you cant just left click the item as it makes you attack.

  • I have rep level of 34 in merchants alliance and when I do a cargo run with perfectly conditioned cargo, it gives me very very very little xp. Like 2-5 percent of a level per cargo item. What scares me is that there is a double gold and double rep event going on as of when this was posted. So if I do a cargo run it after the event ends, then I will literally never be able to get to pirate legend. Pls help me fix this

  • Can i get the Jacket after the Event has finished? (10 FotD Reward)

    I heard both no and yes...


  • what is the date that they disapear?
    i want to buy the monkey and maybe the parrot but i dont have enough for it yet...
    in the next week or so i will but i dont know exactly when
    so i would like to know the day and time but i do not

    does someone know the date?

    i think i remember in a developer update that they said it was at the end of this month wich is not the best thing tho...

  • I know a lot of people asked about this, so sorry.

    I changed my name on the website and it changed in here. but it hasn't changed in the game. sooo, Idk what to do. any suggestions?

  • Hey all, me and my brother just bought SoT and just have to say we're LOVING every moment

    We realised we must complete a whole chapter of a tall tales voyage before logging out of an evening or progress won't save so last night when I got back from work we completed the Shroud breaker the first part! Finding the scarab totem and doing the puzzle with the room filling with water was adrenaline pumping hehe but then we went to Plunder Post to hand it in and so we did then he told us to go to Madame Olivia at Plunder Outpost now we were already there so thought great! Went there to try accept the next part but it was still locked? We are both totally confused and logged out frustrated thinking now have we actually gotta complete the Shroud breaker 5 times? To unlocked the next part surely not? We do not mind but time is limited we do not understand what we done wrong! Please help us someone

  • is there a way I can play on my friends galleon in adventure mode when he isn't on the game. bcoz I want to stock up our supplies when hes not on.

  • Title. Mission is Fate of the Morningstar. I've dug up the entire beach where the awful blurry map shows to dig and found nothing. Here's a picture of the map, so you know how trash it is.

    Edit: Image didn't post for some reason, but it's easy to find if you google "Eli chest location Kraken Falls", apparently everyone else got the other location when they did the mission, because I can't find anything about this one.

  • Hi, i've noticed i gained Athena experience without actually cashing in a Athena's.. I cashed in a stronghold gunpowder barrel and it gave me some Athena xp. My question is: What items give you Athena exp or was it a commendation or something? Thanks in advance

  • Hello, I was wondering if the things I bought in the pirate emporium will be deleted if I create a new pirate.
    I know that the reputation, gold, skins,... are, but what about the stuff bought with real money?

    i didnt understand what i must do. im bored almost 1 week about this. i need a player for help me with that. maybe we can play and do together.


  • I don't know if this is the right place to post this but does anyone know how to fix me getting copperbeard errors whenever I try to join someone? I restart my computer, restart my game, even restart the xbox console companion app (which doesn't work very well at all sadly, I don't think rare can fix it though) Thank you for your help. (Microphone also doesn't work at all in game but I am not really affected by that)

  • Are the Rag and Bone Crate Mercenary voyages still available during the Fort of the Damned update? Am I missing something?

  • So the other day my crew and I (4 in all) fought through all waves of shadows of fate, killed Graymarrow (Is this his third life/resurrection, because he’s the ghost of a skeleton?), and took his key and opened the vault.
    We collected the loot and did the whole fort by ourselves, and no other crew even touched the skeletons, but we didn’t receive the commendation for finishing it the first time. There was one in our crew who had claimed that they did it 10 times, but only got the credit for one.
    Does anyone know how to get credit for it, or if not, will there be a way to be compensated for the lost credit/time?

  • I've been trying to get killed by lightning for months and months. That Festival of the Damned commendation continues to elude me.

    I try to get myself down to almost no health, and I hang out in the storm, but... I've never been hit.

    Is there a reliable strategy for getting zapped?


  • Hope this is the right spot to post

    Just spent the better half of the night completing my first FOTD Fort, we finished it (sunk a sneaky sloop and killed the two pirates) got our loot, took it to the outpost cashed in.... Annnnddd nothing

    Got the gold and dabloons...no reputation....the other two pirates I was playing with did... I didn't nothing, what's going on? Felt defeated and that I wasted my time


  • Hi before the update I had 200k gold and 100 blrige rat coins (sorry) and when the update came I had nothing if you can help I will be thabkful


  • If you are in the middle of completing a tall tale and your friends join who haven't unlocked the tall tale, will it the tall tale be cancelled?


  • Recently I have started to stream because I am a completionist and wanted to work on the Creator Crew Commendations. I also recently started playing SoT with my brother. Needless to say my crew got the hook in him and he loves it. But he had the ability to learn from a crew of veteran players. I have access to some decent video editing tools and software because I am back in school (College at 34!!). Would it be worth my time to build a decent tutorial for new sailors entering the game in late 2019 as we have seen many many changes from release and post anniversary update.

    I was thinking of just collecting video and compiling all the tips we taught my brother.

    Thoughts?

  • Any ideas how to solve this? i don't even know how to contact support, i tried to install it on the windows store, i asks me "Where do i want to install" i tried with 2 different disks i use for installing games and it wont even start the installation.

  • A couple nights ago, I purchased the "Anniversary Edition" during the end of the Microsoft Studio sale via the Microsoft Store.

    This "bundle" was supposed to include the base game and the "Sea Dog Pack" which was a collection of cosmetic items and an amount of in-game currency.

    I had previously played SoT as part of the Game Pass a long time ago. I no longer have the Game Pass, and I was able to sign into SoT as effortlessly as I expected. My old/original pirate was there, with his meager earnings and handful of stuff I'd earned when I first played.

    However, the "Sea Dog Pack" contents aren't unlocked on my account. The cosmetics (outside of the coat I'd bought on my own a year ago) aren't unlocked for me, and my sad total of gold is far less than the amount that should have been added by the Sea Dog Pack.

    I attempted to make a support ticket regarding this issue, and the response was extremely prompt. However, the support ticket is somehow auto-generating a gamertag that I do not use and attaching my support request to that. Since the gamertag I play under, Unruhe, doesn't match this erroneous gamertag, support refused to help me and then closed the ticket.

    According to this very website, I'm signed in as "Unruhe" but the support tags end up under another name. Some older threads suggested that there'd be a code in my order history that I could apply to my account for the Sea Dog Pack, but there's no such code on my Microsoft transactions page -- it merely lists the "Anniversary Edition" and then explains that it includes the base game and the Sea Dog Pack, but there's no additional code, information, nor link to any details on how to redeem the pack.


  • Hey guys,

    i just got this game to try it with a friend and it's pretty amazing.

    However we're running into a wall of other players. Played for about 5 hours today and every single time we find any loot or quest items we need to turn in, we get spotted and sunk.

    Now my buddy is totally frustrated and ready to quit. So I'm stuck on trying to convince him to keep trying but I'm not familiar enough with tactics on what to do. A for instance, we were out at sea getting some random barrels in the middle of nowhere and managed to get a rare crate of tea. Get out of the water and we're boarded, killed repeatedly and everything taken.

    Is it better to just cruise for people to attack than to do the actual quests? or are there some tactics to avoid constant destruction?

  • What is up with this? I have done about 20 or so of these voyages and it only gives me "Spoils of Plenty", "Roar Traders(sp?)", and "Finest Seapost". That's it. Out of the 8 I only have 3 done. It will not give me any of the other ones. Is this a bug or by design?

  • Hey all, good to see that somebody put time in to do a game discussion for the various Tall Tales.

    When I got stuck, I used https://rarethief.com/sea-of-thieves-tall-tales-guide/

    Some of the images can be deceiving, but it should help you get 'em done.

    And don't forget to read all the journals for each Tall Tale. Rare Thief also has a separate journal guide. Quite handy.

  • I thought i liked my character, but now I dont like how she looks. I know if I delete my pirate the progress and gold will go away, but will I keep the clothes and cosmetics that I bought before?

  • Ive just completed all the Tall Tales, got the achievement, gold curse, commendations, everything ticked but the title is still locked 😯

    How do I unlock it!
