Shroudbreakers are statues created by the Ancients that dispel the effects of the Devil's Shroud.
Mechanics[edit | edit source]
An incomplete Shroudbreaker can be obtained in The Shroudbreaker Tall Tale, the rest of the Shores of Gold Story Arc focus on finding the four jewels that power the statue. A crew will have a completed Shroudbreaker affixed their ship for Shores of Gold Tall Tale to sail through the Shroud and finally approach the Shores of Gold. Having the statue permits passage only into that area within the world border.
Lore[edit | edit source]
The Ancients had been taught to create the Shroudbreakers, which enabled them to live in an area longer than the Devil's Shroud would've permitted. Ever since their disappearance, what statues remained had been sealed away in vaults across the Sea of Thieves, protected by puzzles and keys.
In the early pioneering years, The Forsaken Shores Alliance affixed a statue onto the Shroudbreaker to sail into 'forsaken shores'. During their abrupt disbandment, the ship and the statue was destroyed, its pieces clearing the entire Devil's Roar region.
Decades later, legends of the Shores of Gold deep in the Devil's Shroud had propagated amongst pirates, who set out in search of this mythical land. With the help of the Pirate Lord and previous legend-seekers, they assembled a Shroudbreaker to gain passage to the island and unlock its inner sanctum. After defeating the Gold Hoarder residing at his throne, the Pirate Lord congratulated the victory and had the statue placed back into its resting place for safekeeping.
