— The Merchant Alliance Motto


The Merchant Alliance is one of the major Trading Companies in Sea of Thieves. Every Outpost Dock houses a Merchant Alliance Representative willing to recruit new Merchants and send them on increasingly challenging Voyages.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The Merchant Alliance is the original and longest standing company in the seas.[1] They mostly deal in living goods, which are purchased from adventuring pirates who pick up the animals during their voyages. Their business model consists of customers making an order to the alliance, and the alliance getting the wares by ordering it from pirates. Some of the alliance merchants also take orders of "Special" wares, but it mostly depends on whether or not the salesperson wants to deal in illegal goods rather than what the company stands for.

Voyages[edit | edit source]

Main article: Merchant Voyage

Merchant Voyages can be bought from Senior Traders on the docks at every Outpost. The Merchant Alliance sends Player Pirates on two types of Merchant Voyages: Trade Good Commissions and Cargo Run Voyages. The First requires Players to find and deliver specific Trade Goods to specific Senior Traders at [[Outposts in a set amount of time. These can either be Animals or Gunpowder Barrels. There are three types of commissioned Animals: Chicken, Pigs and Snakes. These have to be caught in Cages provided by the Senior Trader NPCs and taken care of until delivered. Gunpowder Barrels can be found on Fortresses or randomly on Islands. The Second requires Players to pick up Cargo Crates from a Sea Post, Outpost or Large Island NPC and deliver it in time and good condition to another NPC.

In addition to Voyages sold by Senior Traders, Trade Good Commissions and Cargo Crate requisitions can sometimes be found from beached or floating Messages in Bottles or as Mysterious Parchments in Barrels. The Cargo requisitions act identically to Cargo Runs. The Trade Good Commissions, however require the Players to either find or get one of the three Supply Crates from Senior Traders and fill them with Resources or just bring in a Gunpowder Barrel. Animal requisitions are unique to Voyages purchased from Senior Traders, whereas the Supply Crates are unique to Voyages found from other sources.

When sold to Senior Traders or the NPCs, The Goods gathered during these Voyages reward the player with Gold and Merchant Alliance Reputation.

Goods that have not been requested can still be sold, but are worth far less gold. Trade Good Crates cannot be requested and have to be sold individually.

Merchant Alliance Reputation is used to level up with the Company and to earn higher Promotions. Merchant Alliance Reputation is gained every time something is sold to the Senior Traders, or when one earns Commendations with the Company.

The Merchant Alliance Promotions are one of the leveling paths in Sea of Thieves and can be bought with Gold after every 5 levels of Reputation gained with the Company. Each Promotion unlocks a new Cosmetic Version of either the Merchant Watch or Spyglass, a new Title to show off and more lucrative Merchant Voyages.
