Skeleton's Orders is an interactable Quest Item in Sea of Thieves. These Quests are dropped by various types of Skeleton Bosses. The Quests need to be picked up in order for them to appear at the Map Radial Menu. The main source for Skeleton's Orders Maps is from defeated Emergent Skeleton Captains who provide X Marks the Spot Maps or Riddle Maps to the Crew that picks them up. Skeleton's Orders Quests take players to Islands, uncovering various high-value Treasure Items.
Skeleton's Orders Quests can only be acquired from Emergent Skeleton Captains or Skeleton Fort Boss Skeleton Lords, who drop them when defeated. The Orders have to be picked up by a Crew member for the Quest to appear on the Map Radial Menu. Skeleton's Orders Quests can either give X Marks the Spot Maps or Riddle Maps on nearby Islands.
The most common source for Skeleton's Orders Quests is as drops from Emergent Skeleton Captains who wander around solo on Islands. Emergent Skeleton Captains always drop a Villainous Bounty Skull and Skeleton's Orders (with a small delay).
Emergent Captain Order's Treasure Pool
- During their introduction with the Fort of the Damned (Raid), which required a Ritual Skull to start, Skeleton's Orders maps always uncovered a single guaranteed Ritual Skull, however Ritual Skulls were removed from their Treasure Pool with the subsequent The Seabound Soul (Content Update).
- The Lost Treasures Update readded Ritual Skulls into Skeleton's Orders quests, but they now have a chance to appear only in Riddle Map Quests.
