Update June 5th: We have an update for you all on the recently announced Legendary Sea Dog Commendation rebalance. Read on for more details straight from the development team.


Good afternoon pirates!

Jason Cross, Producer on The Arena here with an update on the Legendary Sea Dog Commendation rebalance.

Regarding the original story (see below), we have been reviewing the feedback from players and have decided not to make this rebalancing change after all. It's a big achievement and we don't want to take that away from players who want to try to reach this goal!

However, we will still be awarding the Victorious Sea Dog Blunderbuss to anyone who reaches Grade 5 of this Commendation, whether they've done so already or manage to do so in future.

Legendary Sea Dog Commendation Grades:

  • Grade 1: 5
  • Grade 2: 15
  • Grade 3: 60
  • Grade 4: 120
  • Grade 5: 240

We apologise for the changes and any confusion they have caused, and want to thank you all for continuing to give great feedback to help get these balancing changes right for the game.

See you out there in The Arena, ready to battle pirates and Legends alike!

As well as a shiny new commendation, here's what awaits Pirate Legends who hit 240 Arena wins!

Original story:

We're back with another quick update from the Sea of Thieves team! This time, Producer Jason Cross has some details to share on a rebalance to one of our Pirate Legend Commendations in The Arena. Find out how Pirate Legends can now get their hooks on a special reward…

Over to you, Jason!


Good afternoon to all you glorious Sea Dogs! Jason Cross, Producer on The Arena here with a rebalance update.

We recently realised how difficult it was for Pirate Legends to achieve Grade 5 for the Legendary Sea Dog Commendation. As a result, we have lowered the required number of wins for each grade, making it easier to achieve Grade 5 and earn the Commendation.

However, we have been incredibly impressed by those Legends who have already achieved Grade 5! Therefore, in a patch coming sometime over the next few weeks, any Legend who has already reached 240 wins will be rewarded with a unique weapon cosmetic.

Any Legend looking to claim this unique weapon cosmetic after that point will be able to unlock it with 240 wins, as per the original Commendation target.

The old and new number of wins required are displayed below:

Current:

  • Grade 1: 5
  • Grade 2: 15
  • Grade 3: 60
  • Grade 4: 120
  • Grade 5: 240

Revised:

  • Grade 1: 1
  • Grade 2: 5
  • Grade 3: 25
  • Grade 4: 50
  • Grade 5: 100

Thanks for all your continued support!
