Location Types[edit | edit source]
Regions[edit | edit source]
The Sea of Thieves map is currently divided into four Regions with the dangerous Devil's Shroud surrounding the edges of the map. Each Region is intended to have its own distinct theme and feel.
The Shores of Plenty[edit | edit source]
The Shores of Plenty comprises the North-West portion of the Map. It is composed mainly of tropical small sandy cays and islands with white sandy beaches and lush palm trees. The Sea of Thieves developers have 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 Region is tied to the Merchant Alliance.
The Ancient Isles[edit | edit source]
The Ancient Isles comprises the Southern and South-Western portion of the map. It is composed mainly of large islands lush with greenery, rock monuments, hidden cave structures and ancient hideaways of pirate crews that used to sail these seas. The Sea of Thieves developers have 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 and pirate legends. The Ancient Isles Region is tied to the Gold Hoarders.
The Wilds[edit | edit source]
The Wilds comprises the North-East portion of the map. It is composed mainly of semi-fortified, "haunted" and deserted islands containing the remains of deceased pirates. This region is dark and cloudy, with the flora of the islands being largely wilted. The Sea of Thieves developers have stated that they wanted this region to feel darker and more threatening, with near-permanent cloud cover and native plant life slowly withering and dying. The Wilds Region is tied to the Order of Souls.
The Devil's Roar[edit | edit source]
The Devil's Roar comprises the South-East portion of the map. It is composed mainly out of volcanic islands covered with half-burned plant life and strange red crystal growths. The Devil's Roar 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 little 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 Roar, Morrow's Peak Outpost.
No Man's Sea[edit | edit source]
The No Man's Sea is the large Open Sea in the middle of The Sea of Thieves that is not a part of the other three Regions surrounding it. Despite the Sea Dogs setting up their Tavern and Arena at the large peak (called Arches Peak by the community) in the middle of these wild waters, none of the Islands or landmarks in the area are charted on any map, nor are these seas under any one Company's control. There are three Uncharted Locations here: Uncharted Island (I-12), Uncharted Island (K-9) and Arches Peak. While Uncharted Island (N-13) also seems to be here, it is home to Wildsplashes indicating that the Island is in The Wilds instead. No Man's Sea Islands are not home to any Regional Fish types, thus making them ideal for catching non-regional fish variants such as Shadow Stormfish or Twilight Stormfish inside Storms.
The Devil's Shroud[edit | edit source]
The Devil's Shroud marks the edges of the map that enclose the Sea of Thieves, but also conceal abandoned lands that may or may not have been inhabited. Sailing into the shroud the sea will turn Red with blood and slowly start dismantling a ship. A crew can tell that they are in the Shroud if they start hearing a high-pitched sound. Within the Devil's Shroud, it is rumoured that there is an Island of unimaginable riches called The Shores of Gold that can be only accessed by acquiring the Shroudbreaker artefact. Several Tall Tales tell of its legacy.
Land Locations[edit | edit source]
Outposts[edit | edit source]
Outposts are the main inhabited Islands of The Sea of Thieves, housing a Tavern, various Shops, Trading Companies and a port for a crew's Ship. Every game session begins and mostly ends at an Outpost as this is where players can acquire Voyages or turn in their Treasure for rewards. There are no natural Enemies on Outposts apart from enemy Pirates who may want a part of the crew's hard earned Treasure and Resources.
Sea Posts[edit | edit source]
Sea Posts are small rock Islets with a single Trader's Shop each who offer 5% discounts on a selection of three random items that change every midnight. Sea Posts also house the Representatives for The Hunter's Call Trading Company who peddle in rare or common Fish and Meat.
Fortresses[edit | edit source]
Fortresses are highly fortified Watchtowers, 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 even left-over Gunpowder Barrels. However, at any time, one of the Forts can be taken over by hordes of Skeletons during a Skull Fort World Event. These Skeletons will man the fortifications and try to keep anyone away from their treasure filled Fortress Vault.
Islands[edit | edit source]
Islands are wild and uninhabited. There are three types of Islands Large Islands, Small Islands and Uncharted Islands. These can hide Barrels worth of left-over Resources and buried or forgotten Treasure. These Islands are home to natural Wildlife and even cursed Skeletons. These Islands are the main targets of Voyages issued by Trading Companies who dare not venture into these perilous locations themselves.
Uncharted Locations[edit | edit source]
There are a number of "uncharted" locations that do not appear on the Map.
Uncharted Islands[edit | edit source]
There are a number of Islands in The Sea of Thieves that are as of yet not charted on any Maps. These Islands are not targeted by Voyages, however they may be inhabited by various people or even hide various legendary secrets that can only be accessed through investigating Tall Tales.
Sunken Shipwrecks[edit | edit source]
Sea Volcanoes[edit | edit source]
In the Devil's Roar, each Large Island is home to an active Volcano, however there are five additional documented Sea Volcanoes that can erupt at any time and easily take down any Ships in the vicinity. 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.
The Ferry of the Damned[edit | edit source]
This Ghost Ship in the other world is the Locations where any dead Pirates of The Sea of Thieves are cursed to end up in after death. Any Pirate who is sent here will have to stay there until they are fit to be resurrected.
Rocky Islands[edit | edit source]
Rock formations jutting out of water, which cannot be explored on foot:
- Thread-the-Needle Rock (J-14): A group of five rocky islands with the one in middle being a large arch-shaped rock formation located North from Snake Island. Fans have named this rock formation “Thread-the-Needle Rock” as its small archway presents a challenge for crews to navigate through.
- The Maze: Fan name for a group of six or five oddly-shaped rocky islands of various sizes located North-by-Northwest of Ancient Spire Outpost. Its passage is generally too narrow to sail through with a Galleon, but skilled Sloop crews might safely sail through.
- Pinky Rock: Fan name for a rocky island located east of Shark Bait Cove.
- Silent Watchers: Fan name for four large jagged rocky islands surrounding the Isle of Last Words.
- Happy Fish Rock: Fan name for a big rock formation located North from Isle of Last Word just offshore, which happens to look like a giant fish that is happy splashing in the water.
