    The Great Fishing PSA



  • So i play sea of thieves on console, i have completed Fate of the Morning Star, Revenge of the Morning Star, and now i'm on Shore of Gold, i have gotten the condemnations for completing them but it says they are still locked, can anyone help?


  • Ahoy! I recently heard of a mysterious title wich can be unlocked by completing every commendations and max leveling all 3 main factions. I don't know if we would unlock the title immediately or at the end of the month with apparently some other rewards that would be given. This is of course only a simple rumour on those seas but I want to know if it's true or not by asking the community itself.


  • 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.


  • Hello!
    I want to know about chat visibility distance for other crews.

    Why don't we have a private chat?

    Why are non- verbal commands visible to other teams too?

  • Hello there! I hope your day is going well, and that I'm finding you at a good time.
    I have been playing Sea of Thieves for a few weeks now, and I have realized that I cannot find any other players out on the seas. I have looked at the main map that is found on the ship, but I still cannot find other players. Upon opening the game, I select a sloop, and open crews, hoping I will see other players. I invite my friend and load into the world. Still, I can't find other players... Does anyone happen to know the fix to this? I have always wanted to get into a ship vs. ship fight, but I just can't find anyone. Does anyone know the fix to this? Please let me know! I would be quite grateful!
    Cheers!

  • Are these two new sails offered by duke for finishing the come commendations going to be available after the update? I'm worried about losing the chance to attain them after the event is over.


  • Hi - I cannot seem to connect to any game. I keep on getting the daffodilbeard error. Is anyone else having this issue?


  • Hello,

    I am hoping I have the correct thread. Shore's of Gold - the 9th tall tale has a bug on the northern vault where you get the tokens in order to get a key.

    Multiple times the trap is not retracted properly and even though it is not there you die by moving over it.

    Hoping this can be fixed in a future update. I tried to complete the tall tale two separate times and days before I gave up because of this issue.

  • Ahoy maties!

    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.

  • Is anyone able to play this game right now? I got home 3 HOURS ago, and have been trying to log in constantly, only to have a "Lavenderbeard" message saying services are temporarily unavailable and to try again. I checked the Beard messages page, and Lavenderbeard is usually "Server maintenance", however no maintenance is scheduled. I checked my Firewall, and it's letting SOT through, and there are no antivirus issues. So either they have the servers down and didn't bother to update their status page (which has said everything is fine the whole time) or something else is seriously wrong.


  • Hi
    I keep getting - The Sea of Thieves services are temporarily unavailable. Please try again. (DaffodilBeard) but from what i'm reading people are playing.
    I've already checked my firewall and antivirus.
    Can anybody help please.

  • Me and my friend started the Tall Tale Seabound Soul, but we both had to stop playing when we reached the Island where Stone's skull would be. Problem is, we didn't know about the lantern trick to see where he died, and ended up never finding his skull. We logged off, and I logged back on today to play solo. And even though I voted to restart the Tall Tale, and it says chapter 2, I haven't been able to find the ghostly ships to follow, even going back to the Islands I've seen them at before. I have no idea how to keep going with the quest. Help?

    TL;DR, Almost finished chapter 2 of Seabound Soul, didn't know lantern trick, never found Stone's skull, left the game, can't find the ghost ships.


  • Be me
    Be busy with association / work
    Get online every once in a while
    Start a solo crew on a sloop because that's all you've got time for
    Embark on a low-level voyage because your reputation is low for failing so many voyages due to griefers
    Reach first destination
    Try to catch some pigs in a cage
    Encounter griefers but not enough to record them doing it to you or get screen shots with player names
    Die and lose your cargo
    Repeat

    Awesome game, bully/10, would pay full price

  • I cant hear anyone else in the game unless I have them added. This is gamebreaking for me since I cant hear my teamates. They also cant hear me.

  • Is the voyage from Duke of the time limited Ghoulish fleet better or my voyage from the order of souls as the abominable armada crusade

  • Ahoy. Clothing Shop, Merchant Alliance and occasionally Order of Souls do not load inventory. I have been playing with a friend who has access to all of these without issue. Opened a support ticket and was met with a response for Emporium coins which does not address the issue. Have cleared cache, uninstalled and reinstalled. Made a new account and bought a second copy. Formatted PC. Currently stranded. SOS.


  • Hey!
    I have like 40k gold/money in this game. but i cant buy anything at shop. its so annoying when i play for gathering the gold but i cant use that. its said "Im having some trouble for preparing my inventory. ask me again shortly"

    i have send support ticket 3 days ago. but nothing response :) i just want my wallet back if its doesnt fixed.

    sorry for bad english
    thanks! :)

  • Hi,
    I tried to find the information but I couldn't anywhere.

    • Does sinking Ghost ships count towards emissary?
    • If yes, all of them? (both voyage and world event)
    • Does it count towards all factions or just the order of Soul? Including reapers?
    • Is this a valid strategy to get all the way to level 5 in the emissary?

    I know I could just test this out live, but I wanted to know beforehand... plus this would serve as material for anyone else looking for the same answers


  • Ahoy!

    Ok so recently I've been grinding the game to get max levels, I know what I'm doing I've played since launch and am 75 in GH, OOS, & MH plus Athena 20, but I've been really struggling lately with how to level up Reapers Bones? It seems the only good method is to get flags and generally there will only be 1-3 emissaries in a server (even though I'm on xbox only servers) and by then you don't want to server hop because you've got a tonne of supplies and your Grade 5, people nearly always quit if they see a Grade 5 so it stops the influx of more emissaries. Stolen loot and cheating it doesn't work either as I tried that yesterday, 3 people one brig one sloop, sloop grinds to grade 5 and gets emissary loop sorted and the brig just gets normal loot and when the sloop is Grade 5 they sink them and steal the 20 captains chests, at the end of the session the brig invites the sloop and they cash in. Stolen loot is alright but it seems the main way is flags and they're so annoying to get, the method I used is alright I guess but it's one of those things that in theory should work but it just ends up not... Any tips or exploits for leveling up Reapers Bones? Thanks :)

  • In a new patch in order of sould commendations there are few new one, that you can achieve for sinking ghost ships. Some of the commendations have yellow dots with points. Is this a some type of coins or smth?
    Example

  • Will the new sails behind the commendation be time limited to only this month? Just want to know to see if I have to rush it or not.

  • Upon downloading the update and logging on I find that I receive no sound while in game. I checked that my headset was on default for audio, that the in game music was on, that the Xbox Game Bar had selected my Corsair Void Pro headset.

  • Well,

    as said my sloop was pretty full of nice stuff and I made an volcano explode via gun powder barrel. I died :)

    I returned but I was on my ship at differen place and treasures gone :)

    I saw videos when pirates died and they returned to their sunken ship or what so ever and treasures floated...
    I returned to my place in less than 10 min and all gone?

    Is that the way it is? Where can I learn about that?

  • I am a new player and have been attempting to do my first tall tale quest line but my current objective in the quest is to go to crooks hallow, but that pirate guy in the sky with the ghost ships has been over it for 2 hours or so now. In the patch notes it just said islands? Will he always spawn over this one and never go away without one of the other 6 ships deciding to go do this encounter? This seems silly.

  • How do I unlock the ghost captain sails? In game it is saying to sell captian skulls,but elsewhere it is saying to sink 500 ships. Which is correct? And if it is skulls, how many in total are needed. Thanks

  • Hi, i'm wanting to get a few Ashen Key and Chest voyages done.
    I tried to find Stitcher Jim and saw some old tutorials but didn't realize he moves around. Went to Outposts, the unnamed island and Castaway Isle and he wasn't there. I heard he's now around somewhere like in the Forsaken Shores or something but don't know where exactly and can't find too much info on his whereabouts. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

  • I have some questions about the Skeleton Forts, vaults and loot. ( my raid took place on Crow's Nest Fort for future reference) But let me set up the scenario first...

    So, I and a friend have been playing for maybe a week now; couple days have been rough with some pretty bad luck with being sunk by aggressive players... most days have been ok! Today though was just absolutely depressing and morale shattering. We 2 and our sloop teamed up with a couple of guys on a brigantine and took on Crow's Nest with no idea what we were actually doing. We didn't know what the goal was, what was going to happen, they just asked for an alliance and we said sure! Well... not that long in to wave 3 maybe 4 of the skeletons once we were inside something happened to their ship and it was sent flying! ( literally, I mean I wish I had grabbed screen shots of this cause it was blasted into the air and cleared the whole island) This meant when they died they were sent somewhere and we don't know where. They never returned.

    My friend and I continued with the waves still with no idea what we were doing. Luckily, around wave 9-ish we had a friend join our discord call and was looking stuff up for us on our behalf. That's when she read to us what we were to expect. OH! Sweet, it's kinda like a raid! Cool, so we did what we could and just the two of use managed to take down the Mutinous Helmsman. We took a moment to gather the few skulls from the bosses into one place so we wouldn't lose them and what do you know we lost the vault key in the process. It took us a moment to find the key, maybe a solid couple of minutes, and then I happened upon it and popped it into the lock to then be greeted by a sight for sore eyes. That was a pretty magnificent haul... well it would have been... had it not been for the following chain of terror that occurred as soon as we set sail with out haul.

    We turned for Ancient Spire Outpost and not even 60 seconds into our voyage back home did a skeleton crew arise to try and shred us to pieces. We'd already fended off 4 of the ships this day ( in the span of 6 hours mind you and 2 more of them managed to kill us earlier in the day cause one spanned WITH a Kraken!) We had no urge to fight anymore we were so tired and just wanted to turn our stuff in and log off for awhile. This is not what happened. So we manage to half sink them, blow up their powder keg, and then lost them among some high rocks. This took us far off course and we decided to hit Plunder's outpost instead only to immediately see another sloop behind up with one of those MASSIVE red long billowing pennant like flags that we've come to fear wholly and completely. The aggressive PvP'rs. So we sped to the outpost as fast as the wind would let us in hopes to be able to turn in at least a couple of our rewards. I had my crew mate grab something and jump off ship while I circled the island with the sloop on my tail. Ultimately we had to turn and fight and while we fended them off mostly ok and managed to turn in a couple more things... the time spent re-spawning gave them ample time to sink our ship forcing us to spawn some where else and we lost our haul. It shattered us and of course turned out moods sour.

    So my questions are...
    Was it just coincidence that the skeletons spawned? Or does the rate of their spawn increase with the more treasure in your hull?

    Did some of the treasure mark us on the map? How did those notorious pirate find us so bloody fast?

    Were we legitimately just unlucky in our run ins today or were there some unknown/unseen numbers or details that I don't know about since i'm new?

  • Hi!
    Some jerks decided to kill me and with that I lost my "statue".. what are you supposed to do to get it back?.. re-run the voyage?.. restart with a new ship an re-run?.. or can I pick it up somewhere?


  • I was quite young when I started playing Sea of Thieves, and understandably, my parents did not want me speaking to random people, so they made me disable the game voice chat setting. I am now 15, and my parents have decided to let me use voice game chat. But I have not played in a while, and the devs have changed the setting layout, and I cannot find the setting that turns all game chat back on. I have unmuted the "Other crews game chat" option, but it still doesn't work. As I am on Xbox, I cannot use the text chat very well. I am wondering If they have just moved the setting, or if there is a "Reset to the default settings button." Please help!!!

  • Can somebody fill me in on this? To get the commendations, I have to sell the skeleton captain's chest and skeleton captain skulls. When I do sell them, my commendations don't update. It's been at the same number for a while now. Meanwhile, my commendation for killing skeleton ships do. Please help.
