This page lists the locations in Sea of Thieves.
The Sea of Thieves
The Shores of Plenty
The Shores of Plenty comprises the north-west portion of the map. It is composed mainly of tropical, sandy cays and islands with white sandy beaches and lush palm trees. It has been stated that this region's feel was inspired by the Caribbean during the Golden Age of Piracy, along with a touch of Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean films. The Shores of Plenty is tied to the Merchant Alliance.
The Ancient Isles
The Ancient Isles comprises the southern and south-western portion of the map. It is composed mainly of jungly islands with lush greenery, rock monuments, hidden cave structures and ancient hideaways of ancient people. It has been stated that this region's feel was inspired by the Indiana Jones film franchise, in terms of adventure, exploring ancient ruins, and solving their mysteries; along with old swashbuckling adventure stories. The Ancient Isles is tied to the Gold Hoarders.
The Wilds comprises the north-east portion of the map. It is composed mainly of rocky, semi-fortified and deserted islands containing the remains of deceased pirates. This region is dark and cloudy, with the flora of the islands being largely wilted. It has been stated that this region was intended to feel darker and more threatening, with near-permanent cloud cover and native plant life slowly withering and dying. The Wilds is tied to the Order of Souls.
The Devil's Roar
The Devil's Roar comprises the south-east portion of the map. It is composed mainly out of volcanic islands covered with charred plant life and strange red crystal growths. It is a deadly stretch of ocean, pockmarked with volcanic elements, threatening all ships that pass through. There are caves dotted around the area that offer protection, but with constant earthquakes and erupting geysers and volcanoes, nowhere else is truly safe. The Devil's Roar has its own high risk, high reward Voyages that can only be purchased at the only Outpost in the region, Morrow's Peak Outpost.
No Man's Sea
No Man's Sea is a name given to the open sea in the middle of the Sea of Thieves that does not fall into any of the four regions surrounding it. The area contains three islands, two of which are uncharted, The Glorious Sea Dog and Uncharted Island (K-9). While The Reaper’s Hideout used to be uncharted too, it is now used as the base of operations for the Reaper's Bones. While Uncharted Island (N-13) also appears to be here, it is home to Wildsplashes, indicating that the island is a part of The Wilds. No Man's Sea is not home to any regional fish types, thus making it ideal for catching non-regional fish variants such as Shadow Stormfish or Twilight Stormfish while in storms.
The Devil's Shroud
Shores of Gold
The Shores of Gold, or Tribute Peak, is an island to the north-west of the map, within the Devil's Shroud. It is the main focus of the Shores of Gold story arc and is finally visited during the Shores of Gold Tall Tale through use of the Shroudbreaker to part the Devil's Shroud.
Old Sailor Isle
Old Sailor Isle is a large island, supposedly through the Devil's Shroud to the south of the Sea of Thieves. This island is used as part of the Maiden Voyage tutorial, in which the Pirate Lord guides players taking their first journey through the Shroud into the Sea of Thieves. This island is not accessible in Adventure Mode.
Sea of the Damned
The Sea of the Damned is a ghostly realm of the dead visited during the A Pirate's Life and Captains of the Damned Tall Tales. This is also the sea in which the Ferry of the Damned sails, ferrying the souls of deceased pirates back to the land of the living. It is not located inside the Sea of Thieves, nor behind the The Devil's Shroud, but is accessed via Tunnels of the Damned.
Ferry of the Damned
The Ferry of the Damned is a ghost ship, said to be sailing within the Sea of the Damned, where players are sent for a short time after dying, before the door to the captain's cabin opens and they can take the portal back to the living world.
Islands are wild and uninhabited locations which make up most of the land in the Sea of Thieves. There are three types of islands, small islands, large islands and uncharted islands. Islands can hide barrels full of resources and buried or forgotten treasure, as well as other creatures such as animals, skeletons, Ocean Crawlers and Phantoms. Islands are the main targets of Voyages issued by Trading Companies who dare not venture into these perilous locations themselves.
Outposts are inhabited islands, housing a tavern, various shops, Trading Company representatives, Emissary Tables and a port for a crew's ship. Every game session begins at an Outpost as this is where players and their ships spawn, acquire Voyages, turn in treasure and spend currencies. There are no natural enemies on Outposts other than enemy players.
Athena's Fortune Hideout
The Athena's Fortune Hideout is a hub for Pirate Legends and the legendary Trading Company, Athena's Fortune. It can be accessed by Pirate Legends after playing the Shanty of Legends in the correct location in any Outpost tavern. This hidden cave is where players can purchase Athena's Fortune Voyages and Legend exclusive cosmetics.
Seaposts are small rock islets, each with a trader who offer 5% discounts on a selection of three random items that change every midnight. Seaposts also house representatives for The Hunter's Call Trading Company who accept fish and meat.
Fortresses are highly fortified islands, similar in size to Outposts. Most of the time, these Fortresses are abandoned and are quiet with a large number of barrels with ample resources and excess Gunpowder Barrels. However, at any time, one of the Forts can become active and be taken over by hordes of skeletons during a Skeleton Fort World Event. Any attacking crew will have to take on many waves of skeletons as a well as Skeleton Lord, to unlock the vault full of treasure.
Fort of the Damned
Fort of the Damned, previously Old Boot Fort, is a special Skeleton Fort shrouded in eternal fog, where players can perform a ritual to summon waves of Shadow of Fate skeletons before the Ghost of Graymarrow, a Skeleton Lord who hides high value riches in the fort's vault. To access the fort's hidden treasures you must claim all six Flames of Fate and a Ritual Skull.
Siren Treasuries are enclosed, underwater battle arena structures where players can take on waves of Sirens, Ocean Crawlers and Coral Skeletons to eventually unlock the vault containing a large quantity of Coral Treasure and Siren Gems.
There are a number of uncharted locations that do not appear on the Map Table.
There are three islands in the Sea of Thieves that are not marked on any ship's Map Table, Uncharted Island (K-9), Uncharted Island (N-13) and The Glorious Sea Dog. These islands are not targeted by Voyages, however they may be inhabited by various people or even hide secrets that can only be accessed through investigating Tall Tales.
Sea volcanoes are huge rocky structures in The Devil's Roar which can erupt, much like the volcanoes on large islands there. Most are positioned such that multiple small islands are within the range of their eruptions. Sea volcanoes can be found at ‘X-12', V-15, Y-19, V-20, and Y-25.
