|Athena's Fortune Voyage|
Obtaining this Voyage is only accessible to pirates who've attained the Title of Pirate Legend. To pick up an Athena Voyage, pirates must visit the Athena's Fortune Hideout and speak to the Pirate Lord. While only Pirate Legends may obtain the Voyage or place it on the Voyage Table, any pirate may vote on an Athena Voyage, or be part of the crew that is on an Athena Voyage. Therefore, to run an Athena Voyage, a crew needs to have at least one Pirate Legend on it; or have a Pirate Legend join the crew, drop the Voyage, then leave; or have a Pirate Legend board the ship from another crew and drop the Voyage.
Any Emergent Skeletons that spawn during Athena's Voyages have much higher health than Regular Skeletons or even Voyage Skeletons and can spawn with Stronghold Gunpowder Barrels instead of regular Barrels. Additionally, the amount of Shovel digs needed to uncover a Treasure item is also higher.
While doing an Athena's Fortune Voyage as an Athena's Fortune Emissary Crew, progressing through or completing the Quests (completing Treasure Maps, solving riddles in a Riddle Map and killing Captains in a Bounty Map), as well as picking up and placing any of the Athena's Treasure on your Ship for the first time will reward the Crew with Emissary Grade Reputation. Crews do not gain Emissary Grade Reputation for completing the Cargo Maps, nor will they receive reputation for picking up any non-Athena Treasure.
Athena's Fortune Voyages are two Chapter Voyages that lead Player Crews on varied Quests in the three main Regions of The Sea of Thieves: The Wilds, The Shores of Plenty or The Ancient Isles. The main allure of an Athena's Fortune Voyage is Athena's Treasure that can be acquired throughout these Quests and the final Chest of Legends dug up during the final Chapter of the Voyage. Aside from Athena's Treasure, players can also acquire various other Treasure items.
The first chapter is a varied collection of 8 Quests leading Crews throughout the three main Regions. This Chapter always consists of 2 X Marks the Spot Maps, 2 Riddle Maps, 2 Cargo Maps and 2 Bounty Maps.
The Two X Marks the Spot Maps can appear on most Islands in the three main Regions and they both always have 4 X's. Finding all the X's gives Athena's Fortune Emissaries Emissary Grade Reputation. These X's can uncover the following Treasure Items: Treasure Chests:
- Castaway's Chest (common)
- Seafarer's Chest (common)
- Marauder's Chest (common)
- Captain's Chest (common)
- Chest of Sorrow (uncommon)
- Chest of a Thousand Grogs (uncommon)
- Chest of Rage (uncommon)
- Chalice of Ancient Fortune (uncommon)
- Gilded Relic of Ancient Fortune (rare)
- Crate of Legendary Voyages (uncommon)
- Keg of Ancient Black Powder (very rare)
The Two Riddle Maps can lead Crews to any Large Islands in the three main Regions. These Maps always have 4 Riddle lines. Solving each line gives Athena's Fortune Emissaries Emissary Grade Reputation. These Maps uncover a Collector's Chest with Gold and 1-3 of the following Treasure inside:
- Ancient Goblet
- Bronze Secret-Keeper
- Mysterious Vessel
- Decorative Coffer
- Elaborate Flagon
- Silvered Cup
- Gilded Chalice
- Golden Reliquary
- Adorned Receptacle
- Opulent Curio
- Ornate Carafe
- Peculiar Relic
- Chalice of Ancient Fortune (common)
- Gilded Relic of Ancient Fortune (uncommon)
- Skull of Ancient Fortune (common)
- Villainous Skull of Ancient Fortune (rare)
The two Bounty Maps both have 4 Skeleton Captains of any types. The Skeletons accompanying the Captains can also spawn with Stronghold Gunpowder Barrels that can be retrieved from them, when defeated without exploding the barrel. These Captains give Athena's Fortune Emissaries Emissary Grade Reputation when defeated. The Captains can drop the following Skulls:
- Foul Bounty Skull (common)
- Disgraced Bounty Skull (common)
- Hateful Bounty Skull (common)
- Villainous Bounty Skull (common)
The two Cargo Maps have 4-6 assorted Cargo Crates for delivery within a set time limit. Sadly, these deliveries do not give Emissary Grade Reputation for Athena's Fortune Emissaries. The Crates available for pickup:
Once the previous 8 Quests have all been completed, Crews will gain access to Chapter Two of the Voyage, which has only one Treasure Map with just one X. This X will uncover the legendary Chest of Legends, which will fetch a high price from the Mysterious Stranger at Taverns when sold.
Ashen Athena's Fortune Voyage
Those Crews that want a little more challenging Athena's Run for even more valuable Treasure items can embark on an Ashen Athena's Fortune Voyage in The Devil's Roar. These Voyages can also be purchased from the Pirate Lord, but take place only on Islands within the Devil's Roar. The structure of the Voyage is the same as the regular Athena's Voyage, with 8 Ashen Quests, 2 of each type. However, aside from the Athena's Treasure and Mermaid Gems, players will receive Ashen versions of Treasure Chests, Artefacts, Cargo Crates and Bounty Skulls. The final Chest uncovered during the second chapter is an Ashen Chest of Legends, which is even more valuable than its regular counterpart.
