Athena's Fortune is a Trading Company accessible only to Pirate Legends. They reside in Athena's Fortune Hideout, where the ghostly Pirate Lord issues Legendary Athena's Fortune Voyages. The rest of his ghostly crew populates the Hideout Tavern, telling legendary tales and offering Legendary and Ghostly Cosmetics for Player Pirates who have proved their worth on the seas.
Access & Pirate Legends
|“||Through many voyages upon the sea, you searched to find the legend's key.
Now one last step to pass the Tests, to find where Athena's Fortune rests.
Take this tune and make a sound, the secret lies near in the ground.
|— Mysterious Stranger, Shanty Riddle, Pre-Anniversary|
In order to access the Athena's Fortune Hideout on their own, players must achieve the title of a Pirate Legend. The Mysterious Stranger will assess a Pirate's reputation, and if deemed fit, will teach them the Shanty of Legends. This Shanty can be played with any instrument only in a specific space within any Outpost's Tavern which is near the long wall that is opposite to side with the fireplace. Playing the shanty here will open the secret tunnel passage containing the portal to Athena's Fortune Hideout. While players without the Pirate Legend title can travel through the portal to the Hideout, their access to voyages and other facilities is limited.

These are the only Promotions available for the Company and are unlocked at Rank 10, 20, and 30 for 50,000 to 100,000 . Most of the promotions have no unlockable Cosmetics directly tied to them, except for the level 30 promotion which unlocked the Veil of the Ancients Costume. There are also pet cosmetics tied to reaching Rank 20, such as the Whippet Ghost Outfit.
The main source of Athena's Fortune Reputation is turning in Athena's Fortune Treasure: either Chests of Legends from Legendary Voyages, or Athena's Run Treasure items from Athena’s Run of Thieves’ Haven. Players can also earn Reputation by completing grades in Athena's Fortune Commendations or lowering a higher than Emissary Grade II Athena's Fortune Emissary Flag at the Athena's Fortune Emissary Table. Crews representing Athena's Fortune as an Emissary will get increased Reputation gains the higher the Emissary Grade of their Ship.
The following is a table of all the Athena's Fortune Promotions and the Titles that are unlocked after achieving them:
|Rank||Promotion Name||Cost||Title Unlocked|
|10||Guardian of Athena's Fortune||50,000||Guardian of Athena's Fortune|
|20||Champion of Athena's Fortune||100,000||Champion of Athena's Fortune|
|30||Vanguard of Athena's Fortune||100,000||Vanguard of Athena's Fortune|
Athena's Fortune Emissaries
Any players wishing to represent Athena's Fortune on the open seas can do so by becoming an Athena's Fortune Emissary. Pirate Legends are able to purchase the emissary flag from the Pirate Lord for 20,000 . Player Crews can vote to raise a Company Emissary Flag at the Company's Emissary Table. Athena's Fortune Emissary Tables can be found by the Mysterious Stranger. Once voted upon, the Crew's Ship will receive two Company themed Flags on their Ships to designate their Emissary status: a big Flag on the back of the ship and a Pennant on top of the Crow's Nest. These Flags will signify the Emissary Ship's current Emissary Grade and will change as the Crew progresses through the Grades. Athena's Fortune Emissary Flags are Dark Blue and neon Green and will play a distinct tune when viewed from a Spyglass by other Crews. When an Emissary Ship sinks or is scuttled, the Emissary Flag will be lost along with any earned Grade progress. The Broken Emissary Flags that float up from the sunk ship can be sold to The Servant of the Flame at The Reaper's Hideout. When Crews vote to lower their own Emissary Flag, they earn large sums of Gold and Reputation with the Emissary Company (only after Grade 2).
Every Athena's Fortune Emissary will start out at Emissary Grade I and be able to progress up to Grade V. These Grades are displayed on the Ship's Emissary Flags. Players can also check their Emissary Grade progress by using the Equipment Radial Menu or opening up their Reputation tab at the Pirate Menu.
When reaching Grade V, Athena's Fortune Emissaries are eligible to claim a special Athena's Fortune Emissary Quest from the Mysterious Stranger.
With each Emissary Grade, players will receive greater Rewards, Athena's Fortune Reputation and Emissary Value for any sold Athena's Treasure. Note that Players do not get Emissary Grade Reputation from selling Items to the company. The following is a chart of the reward and value multiplier of Emissary Grades:
|Emissary Grade||Rewards, Reputation & Emissary Value|
|Grade 1||Base Reward|
|Grade 2||+33% Base Reward|
|Grade 3||+67% Base Reward|
|Grade 4||+100% Base Reward|
|Grade 5||+150% Base Reward|
- Progressing through and completing Quests in Athena's Fortune Voyages:
- Progressing through and completing Bottle Quests & Skeleton's Orders Quests
- Picking up any Athena's Treasure Items for the first time (note that items inside Collector's Chests need to be taken out individually)
- Putting Athena's Treasure items on your Ship (note that items inside Collector's Chests need to be put on the deck individually)
- Completing World Events
- Defeating Megalodon and Kraken
- Sinking Emergent Skeleton Ships
- Killing Emergent Skeleton Captains
- Sinking rivaling Reaper's Bones Emissary Ships
Things that do not give Emissary Grade Reputation for Athena's Fortune:
- Selling Athena's Treasure
- Picking up any other Treasure items, not even Mermaid Gems
- Delivering Cargo Crates acquired during an Athena's Fortune Voyage Cargo Map
- Progressing through or completing Riddle Maps or Treasure Maps in an Athena's Run of Thieves' Haven
- Sinking Skeleton Ships that are a part of a Skeleton Fleet
- Picking up or putting Collector's Chests on your Ship
- Killing Reaper's Bones Emissary Crew members
- Killing or Sinking any other Trading Company Emissary Ships or Crew members
Once Crews have reached Emissary Grade V when sailing as an Athena's Fortune Emissary, they will be eligible for an Athena's Fortune Emissary Quest. Only one Quest can be claimed per Crew per Emissary Run. This means that if players want to receive more Emissary Quests, they will have to reset their Emissary progress and work their way back up to Grade V again.
The Athena's Fortune Emissary Quest gives all players of the Crew a Treasure Map, a Riddle Map and a Bounty Map that reward them with Athena's Treasure. Once completed, Crews will receive a single X Marks the Spot Map with 2 X's that uncover a Keg of Ancient Black Powder and a Chest of Legends.
Emissary Value & Ledger
Athena's Fortune Emissary Value is earned every time a Crew sells a Treasure item to the Mysterious Stranger while flying an Athena's Fortune Emissary Flag. Each Athena's Treasure Item has a set base Emissary Value. Crews get increased Emissary Value the higher the Grade of their Emissary Flag. When selling Treasure as a Grade V Emissary, the Emissary Value is doubled (see above chart for the multipliers). Emissary Value acts as a Player Pirate's individual scoreboard with a Trading Company.
A player's Emissary Value is counted in their Emissary Ledger, which divides all of the Company's Emissaries into four Ranks based on their total Emissary Value. Each Emissary Rank accounts for a percentage of the Company's total Emissary Value holders. A single Emissary Ledger scoreboard remains active for one month, after which it will be closed and reset. At the close of a Ledger, every player Pirate to place in the first or second top tier will be rewarded with exclusive Company Sails.
Athena's Fortune Emissary Ranks and rewards are as follows:
Most of Athena's Fortune Commendations are only unlocked when a player becomes Pirate Legend. All of these Commendations have 5 Grades and unlock Titles of the same names in their Vanity Chest. Achieving each of the 5 grades will reward the players with additional Athena's Fortune reputation. Some of these Commendations also unlock Legendary Variants of various items for purchase at the Hideout.

Chest of Legends Table
The following is a chart of approximately how many Chests of Legends on average are needed to be sold to level up to Rank 10 in Athena's Fortune. Ashen Chest of Legends is worth 1,5x as much as Chest of Legends. With the introduction of Athena's Treasure and the Emissary system, the table is less useful, as players have much more varied methods of earning Athena's Fortune Reputation than they used to.
