Fate of the Damned Event
The Fate of the Damned update introduces the Fate of the Damned Event that unlocks 6 new Challenges every week for Player Crews to complete. These Challenges take Players all across The Sea of Thieves to defeat Shadows of Fate and Graymarrow. Alongside the weekly Challenges, Crews can also work on the Slayer of Fate Challenges throughout the Event. Both of these Challenges unlock special Soulflame Set Cosmetics and unique Titles.
Fate of the Damned Voyages
Larinna has been preparing the Bilge Rats for the upcoming Festival of the Damned, but most all of them have gone missing. Because of this, Larinna is offering Player Crews new Bilge Rat Voyages to find out what happened to them. There will be a new Voyage each week, focusing on specific Regions of the Seas and specific Flames of Fate and Shadows of Fate Skeletons. The Skeletons have started performing rituals to summon the Ghost of Graymarrow to take on Flameheart their own selves. These Voyages allow Players to easily complete the weekly Fate of the Damned Event Challenges, as well as earn Order of Souls Treasure Items and a Ritual Skull, with which Crews can summon the Ghost of Graymarrow their own selves at the Fort of the Damned.
The following pages lead to the Fate of the Damned Voyages. Note that the pages will be updated as the Voyages themselves become unlocked during the Event.
- The Search for Wild, Plentiful Shadows of Fate Voyage - Seek answers and a missing crew in this Bilge Rat Voyage.
- The Hunt for Hidden, Ancient Shadows of Fate Voyage - A missing crew hold the answers to this Bilge Rat Voyage.
- In Pursuit of Prowling, Devilish Shadows of Fate Voyage - Pirates lost at sea are the key to this Bilge Rat Voyage.
Players no longer have to track active Events and their progress within these Events on the Event Hub at the official Webstite! There is a new Events Menu under the Quick Menu that now allows players to see all active Events and their progress in-game! This new Menu will track both Daily Bounties as well as other time-limited Events.
Devil's Roar Treasure Vaults
The November 2020 patch added Wayfinder Voyages to The Devil's Roar Region, introducing the Sun Vault on Ashen Reaches and the Eagle Vault on The Devil's Thirst. These two Vaults can be accessed with the Eagle and Sun Totem Keys respectively and hide Devil's Roar versions of Treasure Chests and Artefacts inside. Like with other Gold Hoarder Treasure Vaults, solving the Medallion puzzle will give players a Chest of Ancient Tributes.
New Event Cosmetics
This year's Festival of the Damned introduces the Soulflame Set Cosmetics that can be unlocked by completing Fate of the Damned Event Challenges or Fate of the Damned Voyages.
