One of the many commendations you can complete during The Journey to Mêlée Island Tall Tale is the ‘Mêlée Island Historian’ commendation. You can start working on the commendation once you arrive at Mêlée Island during this Tall Tale.

If you need help completing the rest of The Journey to Mêlée Island Tall Tale, check out our entire walkthrough here.

If you are just looking to complete ‘Mêlée Island Historian’ and purchase the Mêlée Island History Book, you’ll need to complete every puzzle on Mêlée Island!

How to purchase the Mêlée Island History Book

You can purchase the Mêlée Island History Book for 200 Pieces o’ Eight from Citizen of Mêlée. While that might sound straightforward enough, you’ll need to complete every puzzle and gain access to the Governor’s Mansion before you have enough Pieces o’ Eight to purchase it.

However, you might still not have enough Pieces o’ Eight after defeating all of LeChuck’s Ghost Pirates. If that is the case, be sure to double-check these specific locations for Pieces o’ Eight Pouches:

  • From Lookout at Lookout Point
  • Inside the cupboard in the Jail
  • Inside the cupboard in the Kitchen
  • From the two Thirsty Pirates in Scumm Bar
  • On top of the table in the Clock Tower gear room
  • In the room with the stairs in the Governor’s Mansion
  • In the cabinet next to Guybrush in the Governor’s Mansion
  • In the footlocker in Guybrush’s bedroom in the Governor’s Mansion

If you are short just one or two Pieces o’ Eight, return to some of the places with a single Piece o’ Eight like the three barrels around Scumm Bar, the barrel on the path to Low Street, the barrel on High Street, or the long benches and tray in the Church.

If you need help with any part of the Tall Tale, check out our complete walkthrough here. Following it along will help you find every Piece o’ Eight as well!
