Sea of Thieves adds a Pirate Legend ship design


Becoming a Pirate Legend in Sea of Thieves is incredibly difficult to do. Well, it's actually not that difficult - it's just a very, very long process of maxing out your merchant reputation.

Once you are there though - well, not much else changes. You get a new title and hideout to start the game in - but there's little with which you can show off your Pirate Legend status to other players, especially those out on the open seas.

Step up the first Pirate Legend exclusive ship - or specifically, a set of Pirate Legend sails, hull and figurehead you can purchase. Yes, purchase - so there's something else to grind for.

Rare showcased the designs in today's new Patch 1.0.4 blog post but neglected to mention how much it will all cost.


However, Sea of Thieves reddit user NinjaSakura has now confirmed the pieces cost 300k gold. Each.


The 1.3GB update is pretty minor, all in all. You can now hear a sound effect when you open a lore book or when a merchant contract expires. You'll also get a notification if another member of your crew finds a message in a bottle.

There are other, even more minor changes you can read about via the link above, but it's clear this is just a small update to the game while Rare preps Sea of Thieves' meatier May content update The Hungering Deep, which will add "a new AI threat to the world".
