The Quest[edit | edit source]

Once Player Crews have acquired an X Marks the Spot Map they can access it from the Map Radial Menu (E/360 RB.png), viewed with the Primary Use button (Keyboard White Mouse Left.png/360 RT.png) and showed to others with Secondary Use (Keyboard White Mouse Right.png/360 LT.png).

Discovering the Chest[edit | edit source]

Each X Marks the Spot Map depicts an Island on The Sea of Thieves, which players will have to identify via the Map Table and then navigate to. Once on the Island, players will have to use various Landmarks and Compass directions to locate the exact spot that the Xs mark on the Map. Once at the right location, they have to dig with their Shovel to uncover a single Treasure Item. Each Treasure may need upwards of 10 digs depending on the difficulty of the Quest. Sometimes, Skeletons also spawn around the dug up Treasure to try and keep players from taking it with them. After a piece of Treasure is dug up, its respective X disappears from the Map. The Map will disappear or be counted Complete once all the Xs are solved.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Most X Mark the Spot Maps uncover Treasure Chests that have to be returned to the Gold Hoarders Company Representatives on Outposts for Gold and Reputation. Usually, X Mark the Spot Maps that come with Mercenary Voyages uncover new types of Items introduced with the current Content Updates. The Maps that are dropped by defeated Emergent Skeleton Captains lead to various high value Treasure items.

Accessibility Settings[edit | edit source]
