Where to Find

Like most Treasure Chests, the Chest of Sorrow can be found:

Pirate Chat

The Unique Pirate Chat dialogue option for the Chest of Sorrow is: "I can't carry on..."


  • The Reward shown is an estimate of minimum and max value when sold.

    Unique Effects

  • The Chest of Sorrow sobs periodically, releasing a high volume of water onto the ship carrying it. Water must be continually bailed out via Buckets while it does this, and/or the chest must be held offdeck. It can be carried along the outer ladders, or on a detached rowboat.
  • The chest also attempts to "swim away" if dropped into the sea, so it cannot be stored in the water while players explore islands. A player must generally stay behind to care for the chest, or it can be placed on land.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A female version of the Chest of Sorrow was originally planned.
  • The chest leaves a puddle of tears around it when crying inland.
  • The Chest has come to be known colloquially as the "Kevin" chest, in recognition of one legendarily whiny pirate. "Kevinning" opposing ships is often used as a shorthand for using the CoS to sink another ship.

  • PAYOUT: Significant increase in gold and reputation reward.
  • BUG FIX: Fixed a bug where the chest won't flood the ship if kept on a rowboat that then docked.
