Welcome to the Pirate Emporium!
Being More Pirate is all about expressing yourself and telling your unique story – and eventually, your legend – as you take to the waves. From Sea of Thieves’ earliest days, pirates have been encouraged to display their own personal style through ship liveries, emotes and other character customisations.
The Pirate Emporium provides a way to obtain exclusive customisations that aren’t part of any in-game challenges or events. Using Ancient Coins, purchasable with real money, you can pick up pet companions, unique ship liveries, emotes and more to express yourself in a multitude of new ways!
Every Voyage is better with creature comforts, so grab yourself a pet to share your adventures. Whether your newfound friend is furry or feathered, pets are a classic part of the pirate look – you might even give them an outfit that matches your pirate’s style.
Not only will pets come along for the ride while you’re sailing and exploring islands, you can name them too and they can be picked up and handled by you and your crewmates, bringing an extra dash of charm to any Voyage. Start building your menagerie from the initial offering of parrots and monkeys, with different breeds and colour varieties available exclusively from the Pirate Emporium!
Meet the Pets
Many pirates express themselves with emotes, from dancing a jig on the deck to giving a cheery wave to passing ships. The Pirate Emporium can teach you many more nifty moves in exchange for Ancient Coins, giving you additional range to get expressive and surprise your crewmates.
For example, the thumbs-up and thumbs-down are ideal for letting your captain know how you feel, especially if you don’t want to use voice chat. Alternatively, show some sass by blowing a kiss or making a ‘blah blah’ gesture. Experiment with them to find their most effective uses – the coin toss could help to settle crew clashes! New emotes will be regularly added to the Emporium.
The Pirate Emporium will feature a mixture of special ship liveries and cosmetics, but some pirates will be especially keen to see heritage items based on Rare’s beloved back catalogue. These famous characters are being brought into the world of Sea of Thieves as unique ship figureheads and livery sets.
Keep checking the Emporium to see the latest heritage items! The initial Bear & Bird Ship Livery Set should please fans of Banjo-Kazooie by depicting everyone’s favourite platform heroes as fabulous beasts, with many more tributes to other titles lined up.

Visit the Emporium
Enter the Pirate Emporium either by selecting it from the game’s main menu, or by visiting an Emporium representative at an Outpost. All the Outposts in Adventure mode and the Glorious Sea Dogs Tavern in The Arena have an Emporium salesperson. These act as a gateway to buying Ancient Coins using real-world money, and exchanging Ancient Coins for Emporium goods. Ancient Coins can also be bought directly from the Microsoft Store.
While out exploring islands, pirates may be able to top up their Ancient Coins by defeating rare Ancient Skeletons found around the world – identifiable by their bags of Ancient Coins! Catch one before it escapes to claim its Coin hoard for yourself and your crew.
The Emporium can be reached by speaking to certain characters inhabiting the Outposts and The Arena, or through the game’s main menu.
Ancient Coins can be purchased from the Microsoft Store, or by visiting the Pirate Emporium in Sea of Thieves. They can also be obtained by defeating rare Ancient Skeletons through emergent gameplay.
Pirate Emporium items function in the same way as other Sea of Thieves cosmetics. Once purchased, they’ll need to be selected from the appropriate chest on your ship.
Emporium stock will typically be expanded with each of Sea of Thieves’ Monthly Content Updates (the second Wednesday of each month). There are plans to add many more items and bundles in future updates, potentially even whole new types of stock. Discounted bundle offers may also change from month to month. Keep watch on our social channels for news of the most recent additions!
In line with the Microsoft Store policy, some requests for real money purchases are refundable. Refunds will only be processed if the request is within 14 days of the transaction and no Ancient Coins have been spent.
Unfortunately, purchases made with Ancient Coins cannot be refunded.
