Athena's Fortune is one of the major Trading Companies in Sea of Thieves that only deals with Pirates of Legendary repute. Formed by the Pirate Lord, Athena's Fortune is only accessible to Player Pirates who have proven themselves as Pirate Legends. While most of the Company hides in the Athena's Fortune Hideout, accessible through Taverns with the use of a special Shanty, Player Crews can find the Mysterious Stranger as the company's Representative at any Tavern. Player Pirates can climb up to 20 Reputation Ranks with Athena's Fortune through performing various legendary deeds for them.

The Athena's Fortune Company has several Legendary Treasure Items that can be delivered to the Mysterious Stranger for Gold, Athena's Fortune Reputation and Emissary Value (if representing the Company as an Emissary). The following Treasure Items can mostly be found through Athena's Run or Athena's Fortune Voyages.

Reputation, Promotions & Rewards[]

Players can earn Reputation up to 20 Ranks with Athena's Fortune, to earn the Guardian of Athena's Fortune and Champion of Athena's Fortune Promotions and Titles. These are the only Promotions available for the Company and are unlocked at Rank 10 and 20 for 50,000 Gold.png and 100,000 Gold.png. These Promotions have no unlockable Cosmetics tied to them. Though there are 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.

Athena's Fortune Emissaries[]

A Grade V Athena's Fortune Emissary Ship

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 Gold.png. 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).

Emissary Grades[]

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

Emissary Reputation[]

Athena's Fortune Emissaries can gain Emissary Reputation and progress through Emissary Grades in the following ways:

Things that do not give Emissary Grade Reputation for Athena's Fortune:

Emissary Quest[]

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 are as follows:

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.
