Celebrations abound! During Cursed Sails, pirates from all four corners of the map answered the call to defend the Outposts from the fearsome skeleton crews. By forming Alliances and weathering the waves, they drove back the skeleton scourge. Leaderless and feeling the bitter taste of defeat, the accursed skellies continue to roam the seas in their salvaged ships.

Through the ill deeds of Captain Warsmith and her subsequent downfall, the Cursed Cannonballs she sought to control have now been unleashed upon the Sea of Thieves. In recognition of this major event, the Bilge Rats are rewarding pirates who seek out and use these cannonballs against skeletons and other player ships…

Sea of Thieves Bilge Rat Adventures: Cursed Crews

Duration 0:28

Another mysterious accursed power, The Flag of the Reaper’s Mark, has been harnessed from Wanda’s Lab and can now be found in the Flag Box of every ship. It reveals the location of any crew that dares to fly it on the map of every other ship on the server. It does not reveal the size of the ship, or if they are in an Alliance with other crews, so beware before you engage!
