Athena's Fortune Hideout[edit | edit source]
Access to the Athena's Fortune Hideout is the main benefit of a Pirate Legend. Legends can approach the Mysterious Stranger to assess their reputation. He will teach the Shanty of Legends, which can be played with Instruments only by the stairs of any Tavern, opening up a passage to the Hideout.
At the hideout, Pirate Legends can buy Legendary Athena's Fortune Voyages or the Athena’s Fortune Emissary Flag allowing them to access various high value Treasure items and better gains. Additionally, Pirates can talk to the Shopkeepers to unlock and purchase other Legendary Set, Ghost Set, or other cosmetics.
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. Most of these Commendations have five Grades, some of which unlock various Legendary or Ghost items for purchase, or unlock a Title of the same name in the Vanity Chest.
Legendary Mercenary Voyages[edit | edit source]
