Encounters in Sea of Thieves bring forth thrilling and dangerous opportunities for Player Crews to embark on in Adventure Mode. These encounters are not only captivating but also possess the potential for untold riches. Let's explore the various encounters that await intrepid sailors in the vast seas.

World Events: Danger Beckons

These major World Events hold both danger and allure. Only one event can be active at a given time within a single server, indicated by large markers or clouds in the skies. Once a crew successfully completes an event or the time runs out, another random World Event will soon commence.

Skeleton Fort: A Fortress of Secrets

Skeleton Forts, characterized by a large Skull Cloud with green thundering eyes, can appear on various Fortress type Islands. Skeletons man the fortifications and cannons, aiming to guard the locked Fortress Vault. Only one Skeleton Fort can be active at a time, with the event lasting approximately 30 minutes unless disturbed.

To gain access to the treasures within, crews must defeat waves of different types of skeletons. The final boss wave features one of the three fearsome Skeleton Lords: The Mutinous Helmsman, The Two-Faced Scoundrel, or The Duchess. Upon defeating the Lord, a Stronghold Skull, Skeleton's Orders Quest, and a Stronghold Key are obtained. The vault below the main Fortress tower remains locked until the key is removed from the server. Riches abound inside, including various treasures, Gunpowder Barrels, Mermaid Gems, and an Ashen Chest. Molten Sands Fortress even rewards crews with an additional Chest of Rage for the increased risk found in the volcanic region.

Fort of Fortune: Where Danger Meets Reward

The Fort of Fortune challenges daring crews with higher difficulty and greater rewards. Distinguished by a glowing red cracked skull cloud, these forts offer a formidable experience. Skeleton Captains drop Skeleton Orders for armaments, and one of the four Ashen Lords replaces the final boss. The treasures contained within the fort vault include high-value loot exclusive to this world event, such as Athena's Fortune Treasures and the elusive Chest of Fortune.

Skeleton Fleet: The Battle on the Open Seas

A Skeleton Fleet event emerges when a large green cloud shaped like a ship appears in the middle of the Sea of Thieves. Three waves of formidable Skeleton Ships, ranging from one to two per wave, surround the player's ship. Each defeated Skeleton Ship contributes to commendations and drops loot from regular Skeleton Ship loot tables. The final wave features a Skeleton Captain who commands a Galleon. Upon sinking the Captain's ship, the event concludes. Rich spoils await the victorious crew, including Skeleton Captain's Chests, Skulls, Ritual Skulls, Ashen Chests, and more.

Ghost Fleet: Haunting the Seas

A Ghost Fleet event is signaled by the appearance of a large blue tornado in the skies. This eerie phenomenon guides players to an island enveloped by Ghost Ships. As the crew approaches, the Ghost Ships unleash their firepower. The event involves four waves of challenging battles, including Grunt Ghost Ships, Ghost Captain Ships, and the formidable Burning Blade, Flameheart's own ship. Defeating the Captain Ships yields a variety of ghostly treasures, including the coveted Captain Skull of the Damned and Cannonball Crate of the Damned.

Ashen Winds: A Fiery Confrontation

The Ashen Winds World Event is heralded by the appearance of a massive red tornado on the horizon. This swirling tempest leads players to witness an Ashen Lord summoning ritual executed by Ashen Skeletons. The event unfolds through a three-phase battle against one of four Ashen Lords: Red Ruth, Old Horatio, Warden Chi, or Captain Grimm. These powerful foes possess unique fire-themed attacks and grow stronger with each phase. Defeating an Ashen Lord yields an Ashen Winds Skull and a trove of Devil's Roar variants of treasure items. The Ashen Winds Skull doubles as a weapon, akin to a flamethrower, or can be sold for profit.

Raids: Intense Adventures

Raids are distinctive events that require player activation and can coexist with other World Events.

Davy Jones Fleet: An Encounter with the Sea's Secrets

The Davy Jones Fleet can be initiated when players vote for "Lords of the Sea" at Castaway's Camp. Crews must face ghost ships, sinking five of them to progress to the next wave. In the second wave, Siren statues emerge from the water, requiring destruction to clear the wave. All the while, ghost ships and Ocean Crawlers pose additional challenges. Climbing the Spire leads to an epic showdown with The Flying Dutchman, accompanied by Captain Jack Sparrow and others, culminating in the ship's defeat.

Fort of the Damned: Unleash the Darkness

The Fort of the Damned stands as the sole Raid-type World Event that can be activated at any time. To commence this event, players must light the Lanterns of the 6 Ferryman Statues inside the fort using Flames of Fate and place a Ritual Skull on the headless skeleton within the ritual cage. The appearance of a massive Red Skull Cloud above the fort signifies the start of the Raid. Fourteen waves of Shadow of Fate Skeletons spawn, with Shadow Captains emerging on the 7th and 14th waves. The climactic battle against Ghost of Graymarrow concludes the raid, rewarding crews with the Fort of the Damned Key. The vault within the fort contains a variety of treasure, catering to all Trading Companies, including Athena's Fortune and Reaper's Bones.

Legend of the Veil: A Pirate Legend's Tale

The Legend of the Veil presents an exclusive Athena's Fortune Voyage available to Pirate Legends. This three-chapter voyage immerses players in a quest alongside the Pirate Lord. Together, they unearth the Veil Stones belonging to the Veil of the Ancients. Distinguished by its thick tornado, the Legend of the Veil raid may be mistaken for a Ghost Fleet.

Emergent Encounters: Perils in the Unpredictable Seas

These perilous encounters can happen concurrently with other events, intensifying the danger for participating crews.

Skeleton Ship: A Fearsome Encounter

Skeleton Galleons or Sloops can roam the open seas or randomly appear beside player ships. These ships stand out with their tattered sails and unique green and blue lanterns, manned by skeleton crews. Using a spyglass allows players to identify them through a distinctive audio cue. Skeleton Ships can be aggressive immediately or become hostile once a player ship gets too close or is fired upon. Defeating a Skeleton Ship results in valuable loot, including Skeleton quality items.

Megalodon: The Ocean's Silent Stalker

Megalodons, massive sharks comparable in size to Sloops, lurk in the open seas, ready to attack unsuspecting crews. Five Megalodons of varying colors, behaviors, and rarity can appear suddenly, encircling a crew's ship. These awe-inspiring creatures tend to retreat when ships venture too close to landmarks or islands, lying in wait for their return. Megalodons charge at ships periodically, causing chaos and damaging the vessel and any nearby crewmates. Slaying these formidable beasts with cannon fire results in a reward pool akin to that of Skeleton Ships, alongside Megalodon Meat.

Kraken: The Enigmatic Ocean Behemoth

The Kraken, shrouded in mystery, is believed to target ships laden with treasure. Crews that have recently defeated a Skeleton Fort, Skeleton Fleet, or are in the Open Sea without nearby islands often face this colossal threat. The Kraken emerges with an ominous sound, turning the surrounding waters pitch black with its ink. Its many tentacles lash out, assaulting and ensnaring ships. The number of tentacles that must be vanquished to repel the Kraken depends on the size of the crew's ship. Sailing out of the inked area allows crews to flee. Each defeated tentacle yields Kraken Meat and random treasure items.

Notes and Conclusion

These encounters and events reward Trading Company Emissaries with Emissary Grade reputation upon successful completion. Additionally, hazards such as volcanoes and storms can intertwine with these encounters, further increasing the danger and challenge for crews.

In the ever-changing seas of Sea of Thieves, encounters offer thrilling adventures, immense rewards, and the opportunity to test a crew's mettle.
