    The Great Fishing PSA


  • So me and my friend were doing the Cursed Rogue Tall Tale and when we got to the part where Madame Olivia gives you the Enchanted Compass nothing was there. No action button to hit, not even the compass itself was there. She did the animation of creating it and everything. It was no where to be found.

  • For me skeleton ships are currently the most annoying thing in this game, even more so than other player crews.

    You can get out of the ink circle of a kraken, and it'll just sit there and go away after a while.

    A megalodon will go away if you get near any land mass.

    Both of them also hit very slowly. Skeleton crews on the other hand have a skeleton for every single interactable object on their ship, and they respawn ten times as fast as players. Skeleton ships are also always galleons, so whatever crew amount or ship you have, you always face the max firepower that is possible in the game.

    I always dread sailing out of an outpost after a resupply and hearing the slow base drop and the action music kick in. Not because I'm scared they'll sink me, but because it's such an inconvenience. I've learnt that if you sail right back to an island and wait there for a few minutes, then sail out, they will not spawn and the music will fade out (though sometimes I just get 2 ships in a row, and end up fighting the second).

    In my entire time playing this game (and I'm almost pirate legend with no level purchases), I have never been able to "escape" a skeleton ship. They keep following me at 3 times the speed of a normal galleon until either I or they sink.


  • Is there a way to track the exact path a storm will be taking? Ive been trying to go for my blackcloud wrecker commendations and have been having trouble guaging where the storm will be going once i get infront of it and wait at a shipwreck only for it to head in another direction. Any help will be appreciated


  • I play on PC. Tonight, I joined someone playing else playing on PC who did not have a working mic. However, everything he typed was converted to speech (even that which was rendered as ***** in the text chat.) Is this new? I have never encountered it before. I recently upgraded to Windows 10 version 1809 (the "October 2018" release).


  • Have there been changes to the tales? The reason I am asking is whilst playing with a new character, I encountered a problem during the Cursed Rouge tale. After handing the items from the chest to Madam Olivia I searched around for the enchanted compass she gives you but there was no compass to be found. Has this story changed or is it a glitch?

  • Hi guys!
    My main question is:
    What do I have to do, step by step, to get the charitable giving (the comm is about giving a humble gift to another crew and have it delivered)
    Here's my story on how I tried to get it, but didn't
    So, a couple days ago, after I spawned in Galleon's Grave Outpost, I found a humble gift lying by the merchant. I took it with me and went fishing.
    After about 20 min I've noticed a Galleon, so I asked them if they would help me get the commenation.
    We were sailing separately, but they decided to jump on my sloop and their Galleon swam far away from us on it's own (probably hit a rock and sunk in the end)
    We got to Reaper's Hideout.
    I took the gift with me. Me and a guy from the other crew were standing by the Masked Stranger. I gave the guy my gift, from hand to hand and then he sold it, but I did not receive any commendation.
    Any thoughts what could went wrong?

  • This player if you look back at my data on the server cheated a handful of times with aimbot etc. On Arena, we played two rounds with them and you will have more than enough to find this true. Other sailors if you see this pirate, kill on sight please. A new player who loves this community.

  • I completed the voyage 5 times because I got the title that comes with it. But I didn't get the legendary treasure seeker costume. It was still locked in the Athena's Fortune hideout, general clothing store. Did I do something wrong?

  • I am super close to Pirate Legend and since it is march 20th I was wondering if there would be special rewards for becoming one before the anniversary like last year. If not that is fine but I would like to know if I should grind today to get something I won't be able to get in the future.

  • I was playing the art of the trickster and found all of the books and completed the tale. The game says that the commodation for completing the tall tale is only 1 of 5 done. I did get the telescope put their are three other commodations still locked on the bottom row.


  • Hi everyone

  • PLEASE Fix The Cursed Rogue! Three times today, I gathered the spyglass and star map and Olivia DID NOT give me the compass... I did not lose it on the quest wheel...she never gave it to me... I am tired of having to restart a voyage over and over...

  • Hey guys,

    This is basically a rehash of the request for PVE servers. I get that it is not going to happen, but is there anyone with a lot of experience in this game that can help me with my current problem?

    My wife doesn't like video games. Sometimes she'll play games with me that are cute and fun. We have played a lot of Stardew Valley.

    I messed up. I didn't play Sea of Thieves before I bought it for us. I just really wanted to play pirates with her. Sailing together, catching fish, killing skeletons. I didn't realize how much good players really like killing bad players. I also assumed that there would be SOME form of pve. I now know how wrong I was.

    We have played about 10 hours together. Every time we have ended, she never wants to play again. Last night was the worst. We worked a little too long, got a little too greedy, and ended up not turning in loot soon enough. This resulted in us being chased by another player for about 5 minutes. We could not put up a chase, or a fight and were destroyed in the first 20 seconds of them being in range. We were a duo he was solo. I don't really see how this was fun for him, but whatever.

    I'm pretty sure that we're never going to play this game again, which sucks because I really like it.

    So I'm here asking if anyone with a lot of experience has found ways to to have fun for players that are new and bad. Sailing under a white flag doesn't seem to help. Are there any areas where we won't get a lot of loot so there are fewer players or something... anything? If by some miracle she ever wants to play again, what can I do differently so that we have positive experience? It seems like 95% of the core loop she loves and is fun - fishing, cooking, sailing, but the 5% that is critical for it to be a pirate game (pvp) means that we're probably never coming back. I hope that someone has faced something like this before and figured out a way to still have fun.

    Side question... is there a way to return a gift that was gifted/accepted through the Microsoft store?

  • Can someone playing on Xbox please tell me what the default number of the HDR slider is? I screwed mine up and I do not know which number was the default one. I'd like to have all the settings on default again.

  • This topic is deleted!

  • Good evening,

    I have purchased some coins from the Microsoft store to pretty my ship up but they have not appeared in the last 40 - 48 hours.. Help.

  • I was under the impression that upon launching a new session, you would always spawn in at an Outpost. Today I joined in a closed session as a solo sloop and loaded in at Liars Backbone. Did they change spawn mechanics, or is this a rare bug?


  • Hi,

    I recently discovered that killing ancient skeletons give you ancient coins. I have wanted to get a pet for a while now but I am not willing to spend money. I had a few questions about it though:

    1. How many ancient coins will one drop on average?

    2. What is the best method of finding and killing them?

    3. Roughly how long will grinding for the skeletons take me to reach 500 ancient coins.

    4. Finally is it worth the grind? (I have about a month to grind)

    Thank you so much. I would really appreciate some answers to my questions soon. Thanks again!


  • Ahoy!
    We've been enjoying raiding forts to get ashen chests & keys lately to unlock the ashen ship customisations. I was wondering is it still possible to get the older tomes as we are only getting tomes of resurrection?

    Thanks!

  • [Mod edit]

    Was having a pleasant pvp session until this guy started swearing and being generally insulting. Where do I go to hand in this evidence? I think the seas are better off without him.

  • For the life of me I can't figure out where to deliver shark meat for the Hunger Deep anniversary task. Any help greatly appreciated!

  • I like to go my way, doing my things, my missions, I do not feel like fighting with anyone, I am not good at it, that makes the hours work sometimes not worth anything, because I lose it and someone else takes it. That really discourages me. This is for crying. I don't know if this game is for me.

  • I cannot find the smugglers springs. Where is it? Pls help

  • I completes the heart of fire three times, took all three paths, discovered Jim’s hideout and the chest of rage and read all 5 journals, but after i read the fifth journal (3 times to make sure btw), it never gave me the commendation, and it says i’ve only read 4. Anyone know a fix for this other than redoing the quest a 4th time

  • 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!
