|“||Through many voyages upon the sea, you searched to find the legend's key. Now one last step to pass the Tests, to find where Athena's Fortune rests.
Take this tune and make a sound, the secret lies near in the ground.

Pirate Legend is an honourary Title given to any Pirate who has earned the highest Promotions at three Trading Companies in Sea of Thieves. Upon becoming a Pirate Legend, Pirates are rewarded with Legendary Set Clothing and the Shanty of Legends that grants them access to the secret Athena's Fortune Hideout in every Tavern.
Perks[edit | edit source]
The Title, Clothes and Shanty[edit | edit source]
A Player Pirate will acquire the Pirate Legend Title and all the Legendary Set Clothes and Vanity Items for free to equip at the Clothing Chest and Vanity Chest once they reach the maximum Reputation Level of 50 with three of the five main Trading Companies: Gold Hoarders, Merchant Alliance, Order of Souls, The Hunter's Call or Sea Dogs.
After the Player has the Title, they can talk to the Mysterious Stranger at any Tavern, who will assess your reputation and teach you the Shanty of Legends. This Shanty can be played with your Instruments only by the stairs of any Tavern, which will open the secret passage to the Athena's Fortune Hideout!
Athena's Fortune Hideout[edit | edit source]
Access to the Athena's Fortune Hideout is the main benefit of a Pirate Legend. Here, Legends can buy Legendary Athena's Fortune Voyages composed of various Quests leading to the very valuable Chest of Legends. Additionally, Legends can talk to the Shopkeepers here to unlock and purchase other Legendary Set or Ghost Set Items.
Legendary Commendations and Titles[edit | edit source]
While not necessarily tied to being a Pirate Legend, many of Athena's Fortune Commendations and Titles become available once a player has acquired the Pirate Legend Title and completes certain feats at The Sea of Thieves. All of these Commendations have five Grades, which each reward the player with Athena's Fortune Reputation and a Title of the same name upon Completion.
Legendary Mercenary Voyages[edit | edit source]
Usually, every major Content Update brings along with it a handful of Mercenary Voyages, of which, one is always locked for Pirate Legends. These Legendary Mercenary Voyages always have greater rewards and challenges than the regular versions of the Voyages.
The March 2020 Heart of Fire (Content Update) introduced a permanent Mercenary Voyage titled Athena’s Run of Thieves’ Haven, which is available for Pirate Legends 50 Doubloons and introduces new types of Athena's Treasure and Legendary Cosmetics into the game.
