The next time you do the Legend of the Veil Voyage, the Pirate Lord might send you to decipher Sudds’ instructions. If so, you should expect to solve one of three types of quests after speaking with Sudds. One of the quest types is the Zoom Map Quest.
What is a Zoom Map Quest
The Zoom Map Quest is a zoomed-in version of an X Marks the Spot Quest. Instead of the quest parchment showing an image of the entire island, it will only show a small part of the island directly surrounding the X.
You’ll really need to know your island geography to solve this Pirate Legend exclusive quest! The Zoom Map Quests are randomly generated so there are an infinite amount of variations you can get.
How to solve the Zoom Map Quest
To solve the Zoom Map Quest, you’ll have to use your knowledge of the Sea of Thieves islands to identify the location of the X from the limited clues provided. So, you’ll want to look for distinct features of the island in the image, such as shore outlines, type of fauna, and rock color.
For example, if the zoomed-in part of the island has bits of red lava in it, you know the island is somewhere in The Devil’s Roar. Use the Map Table on your ship to help match what island your Zoom Map Quest belongs to.
Another example of clues to look for is red plants. Red plants only exist in The Shores of Plenty and The Ancient Isles. So, if you see a rep plant in the image, you know not to bother looking in The Wilds for the island.
Once you have identified the island, sail over to it and dig where the X is to complete the quest.
