Sea Of Thieves Season 7 Update Brings Faster Captains, Ship Loadouts And Loot Trading

Season 7 of Sea of ​​Thieves has arrived, and with it comes one of the game’s biggest updates since launch. The Season 7 update is highlighted by its Captaincy features, which create more ways to play a role as a legendary pirate, including your ship’s name, custom ship loadouts that persist throughout long games, all new Captain’s Voyages and much more. Here, we’ll break it all down piece by piece so you know what to expect the next time you wake up in an outpost. Draw your cutlass and fill your mug, here’s everything you’ll find in Sea of ​​Thieves Season 7.

Sea of ​​Thieves Season 7 Features

The new flagship addition is the ability to buy your own captain ship. Whereas before you loaded onto a ship of any size you wanted and customized it with your available cosmetics, now you have the option to exchange gold coins for your own ship which you can then name and a custom cosmetic loadout. This then unlocks a host of other new gameplay features.

A captain’s ship comes in the usual three sizes, and each has its own associated price:

  • Captain’s Sloop – 250,000 gold
  • The Captain’s Brigantine – 375,000 gold
  • Captain’s Galleon – 500,000 gold

You only need to buy the ship(s) you want to add to your character, and you only need to buy each ship once at most. Note however that although the first time you name the ship is free, if you ever wish to change its name, you will need to purchase a Vessel name change deed, much like a pirate-looking potion, using the actual in-game currency, Ancient Coins. A renaming act sells for around $5.

Once you have your ship, you can enter the game where the Pirate Lord will greet you with a new tutorial of all the Captain’s exclusive features. This includes save your ship cosmetic loadout and buy Captain’s Voyages from the shipbuilder’s shop – these stack in your captain’s cabin so you don’t need to return to the outposts so often for new voyages.

You can also customize your cabin with new trinkets, portraits, and more, which are earned through the game’s new Milestone system that tracks your swashbuckling career highlights. If you choose to keep them, the signs of Cosmetic damage, like patched hulls, will also persist from game to game. Some players may like an immaculate look while others may prefer to wear their ship’s scars as badges of honor.

Sovereigns will thumb their noses as a common buccaneer, but captains can enjoy exclusive VIP treatment.

Two of the best new features for captains are the ability to stock your ship quickly at the shipbuilder’s shopwith offers such as full supplies of wood, cannonballs, fruits and meat, as well as the possibility to quickly exchange your loot for a new group of NPCs, the snooty Kings, who rest at any outpost. They’ll take all kinds of loot and do the hard work for you, making it a one-stop-shop for chests, crates, skulls and more – but remember, they only deal with captains, considering of their high opinion of themselves.

If you’re looking to instantly supply yourself as a captain, note the following prices for the various supplies:

  • Wood – 2,500 gold
  • Cannonballs – 3,500 gold
  • Disposables – 3,500 gold
  • Fruit – 3,500 gold
  • Meat – 2,500 gold
  • Bait – 3,500 gold
