The Chest of Everlasting Sorrow is a Cursed Treasure Chest in Sea of Thieves, that constantly leaks water during an eternal period of uncontrollable sobbing.

It is found exclusively in The Sunken Pearl tall tale.

Cursed Effects[]

The Chest when it's crying.

The Chest's effects can be negated while on the side Ladders of the Ship.

The Chest of Everlasting Sorrow, like with the normal Chest of Sorrow, will be crying, but it will cry forever, leaving a puddle of tears around it that, if left unattended on a ship, can quickly flood and sink the Ship. Its sobbing is very loud, making Chests of Everlasting Sorrow easy to locate when nearby.

To prevent the tears from sinking a ship, players must constantly bail the water with buckets, or remove the chest from the ship.

  • On Galleons and Brigantines, one crew member may carry the chest on the side Ladders. This does work on Sloops, however the player must sit very low on the ship's side ladder.
  • Place the chest on a Harpoon Rowboat, detach it from the ship and use the Harpoon to tow behind the ship.

The flooding can be used as a tactic to sink another Crew, or Skeleton Ships, by placing it on their ship.

Where to find[]
