Myself and two other pirates came together to go for the gold of a different kind:
We wanted to attempt an Athena SpeedRun as to the rules and guides of the Sea of Thieves Categories as seen and verified on speedrun.com/Sea_of_Thieves and at the time and date of this post 13/10/19 We are the current 1st place and world record holders. The Above video is of the full run and the events that took place during the run.
Side Note : Some people may have claim to do an Athena speed run faster than the time of ours but this is a speed run that was submitted and gone off the speed running website stated above and using its rules and guides for the category and recorded for a speed run attempt. So come have a go for yourself if you want. Always up for a friendly competition to beat the time.
For further note the rules acording to the speedrun.com/Sea_of_Thieves website for a 100% Athena are as follows
-Run begins on final vote for voyage.
-Run ends when the Legendary chest along with all treasures acquired on quest are sold at any outpost. Merchant quest may not expire.
-Any number of players( up to 4) on any sized ship may compete.
-The same players that begin the quest must finish the quest. A player may drop and rejoin during the quest or drop entirely.
-The quest may be started anywhere but, all runners must be on the ship when the voyage begins.
-You must start with no animals or gunpowder barrels
