Sea of Thieves’ big Captaincy update is finally available as part of Season 7, and players are discovering a big surprise benefit to becoming a ship owner: there’s a new, much faster way to transport treasure from his ship which makes the loot sale much, much less. stressful
The most anxious part of playing Sea of Thieves is when you have an entire ship’s loot and are at an outpost intending to sell it all for a fortune. In the amount of time it takes to get all of your treasure, one piece at a time, from your ship to the various merchants at the outpost, there’s a good chance a hostile crew has boarded your anchored ship to steal your hard-earned money. with so much effort. Plunder and let your proud vessel sink to the bottom of the ocean.
However, Sea of Thieves players who have recently bought their own ships are discovering that there is a new trick to drastically reduce the time it takes to sell loot and thus avoid the whole situation I just described. Look, shipowners have access to the new sovereign merchant faction, which is essentially a one-stop shop for captains to sell all their loot. That’s right, you no longer need to go to different merchants to sell your loot, not while you own a ship. And better yet, just above the Sovereign’s shop is a platform with a mounted harpoon, which you can use to retrieve items from your ship with record efficiency.
If you don’t know exactly what that means for new captains in Sea of Thieves, check out this revealing demo from MashedPotatoh on Reddit:

This adds a whole new utility to being a Captain that I wasn’t expecting, and it’s obvious that Rare brought it into Season 7 intentionally. I can’t imagine any other reason to set up a pair of harpoons on a raised platform, except to give jitters like me a break when trying to cash in on an outpost. And to that I say a gray-haired man, me-ho-ho!
Suddenly itching to become a point guard? Here it is how to buy and name a ship in Sea of Thieves.
