How to become a Pirate Legend in Sea of Thieves and what will happen next
Games about pirates are on-trend right now, and Sea of thieves is definitely the brightest one. This game published by Microsoft and developed by British company Rare in March 2018 brought sea adventures to the next level. Despite having mixed reviews from the critics, it gained a huge fanbase not least because of its complicated riddles and secret quests. The one that we will discuss now is Sea of Thieves’ Pirate Legend status and what happens when you become it.
What should you do to become a Pirate Legend
Do not worry this task is 100% achievable but it requires a lot of work and takes a lot of time. There are 3 factions in the game: the Order of Souls, the Merchants Alliance and the Goldhoarders and you need to reach the fiftieth level in each of them. To do so you need to grind through many quests and take many voyages.
After you get the level 50 the new mission and a riddle, will pop-up.
The riddle starts like this “Through many voyages upon the sea, you searched to find the legends key. Now one last step to pass the tests, to find where Athena’s Fortune rests.” and then continues with “Take this tune and make a sound, the secret lies near the ground.” As you may have understood, the “tune” is a new sea shanty. You need to go to a tavern and play it there to reveal the secret hatch underground. Don’t hesitate to go inside to explore the hideout of Legendary Pirate faction.
A controversial story of the first Pirate Legend
If you want to become the first Pirate Legend in the game I have bad news for you. Not a long time ago a Twitch Streamer Prod1gyx obtained this high status. Many players considered it as cheating because he hasn’t finished all quests by himself, taking a lot of help from other players. Some of them even signed a petition for banning his account. Anyway, Prod1gyx revealed to us what does it mean to be a Pirate Legend in Sea of Thieves and unfortunately it is not too much.
What will you get for your troubles
After you enter the hideout, the ghost of the Legendary Pirate faction will send you to Legendary Voyages. These voyages are enlarged version of regular voyages that consist of 8 basic quests. In the end, you will be rewarded with Legendary Chest with 4000 gold and the reputation of Legendary Pirate. The faction’s vendor will provide a glowing ghost costume to you, which is great, but the ship equipment part of Legendary faction is not ready yet. That is all that you can expect for now.
