Emergent Skeleton Captains are single Skeleton Captains who have a chance to appear on Small Islands and Large Islands outside of Skeleton Bounty Quests.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Emergent Skeleton Captains are found alone on Islands, most commonly roaming the shorelines before setting foot on land, however Captains have also been reported to spawn on players on the Island. Emergent Skeleton Captains have as much health as regular Skeleton Captains, but they have the power to switch their weaponry between a Cutlass, Flintlock or Blunderbuss depending on a Player's proximity from them. These Captains can spawn as any type of Skeleton.

Types of Emergent Skeleton Captains[edit | edit source]

Regular Skeleton Captains[edit | edit source]

These Emergent Skeleton Captains are named and will always drop a Villainous Bounty Skull and a Skeleton’s Orders Quest. When picked up, the Quest provides the crew with a specially marked Treasure Map, which uncovers various high-value Treasure (the most notable ones being a Reaper’s Chest or Reaper’s Bounty).

Ashen Guardians[edit | edit source]

Some Emergent Skeletons Captains appear as glowing-red with cinders and are named Ashen Guardians. Ashen Guardians drop a Villainous Bounty Skull and Ashen Guardian's Notes. When picked up, the Notes provide the crew with a marked Riddle Map, which leads players to a Large Island with an Ashen Chest. These chests can be opened with Ashen Keys that are dropped by Ashen Key Masters.

Ashen Key Masters[edit | edit source]

Ashen Key Masters are visually and mechanically identical to Ashen Guardians. The only difference lies between their name and their drops. An Ashen Key Master drops a Villainous Bounty Skull and an Ashen Key. These Keys are used to open Ashen Chests that are dropped by Ashen Guardians.
