Ahoy mates! My name is Hitbotc and I am the Cursed Captain of the Sea of Thieves. I know a lot of you are very excited to jump into the game but you may be wondering and asking yourself the question “Where do I even begin?”. Well that is what this guide is for! I am going to take you step by step to get you ready for the epic adventures that are ahead of you. So pull up your ship, have a grog, and lets have our pirate conversation!
There is a whole lot of information out there and jumping into the seas can be challenging to start. So the very first thing you want to do is what we call the Maiden Voyage. This intro to the game will deliver lore, backstory, and the basics on the game. You can find where to access the maiden voyage right here on the main menu.
ALSO as a bonus tip. Make sure to watch this video I put together where I cover the location of secret journals AND how to access an area that is loaded with free gold and doubloons (you will need that later to buy cosmetics
Since the launch of the game there have been some changes around the addition of new trading companies, new voyage types, special forts, etc. Some of the KEY information you need to know though is.
There are now 5 Trading Companies that you can turn in treasure for and rep up their levels.
- Gold Hoarders: Treasure Chests and Maps
- Order of Souls: Hunting Skeletons
- Merchants: Finding Animals and Cargo Runs
- Hunter’s Call: Fishing and selling the meats.
- Reaper’s Bones: Hunting and killing other pirates
- Athena’s Fortune: Pirate Legend Exclusives
The objective of the game is to level up these trading companies and achieve Pirate Legend status by getting 50 in atleast 3 of the trading companies. However the REAL objective is to have fun and adventure with your friends. You are entering a whole new shared world with other pirates. Some of the best thrills in the game come from not knowing what is going to happen when you click that set sail button.
NOW the next most important thing you need to be aware of is FOOD and WEAPONS. Everyone at the beginning has access to all weapons and you find food throughout the world in barrels and on the ground. I put together a complete guide with charts to show you and compare all the foods. Check that out here
For new players I recommend using the Sword and the Blunderbuss or Flintlock. However at the end of the day find the weapon combination that fits you the best.
Now that you understand the basics of how to play the game. The next most important thing is understanding how to be successful in PvP! I have been playing since launch and have developed many guides that have helped so many people.

Ship combat is prboably the most important aspect to this game and understanding it and doing it well takes practice. I have put together my top tips and tricks specifically around ship combat for you. I also have a guide video giving some tips on how to use the amazing chain shot!
Throughout the seas there are a couple of ways to make money. The most successful and luctrative way is to do forts with an experienced crew. Other important things in the game as far as currency goes are around ancient coins and doubloons. You will want to make sure you know how to farm these beautiful things. So check these videos out
Now if you are just starting out the Emissary System can be kinda confusing but TRUST ME on this one. It is amazing and one of the best things added to the game. Just like everything else though. Don’t worry! I got your back and I am here to help you.
