A new cursed chest has been spotted on the high seas! With the release of the Crews of Rage update comes the Chest of Rage!
This cursed chest can be found in the perilous Devil’s Roar. They are not that easy to acquire though. The skeleton crews that inhabit the fiery region protect these mysterious new chests!To learn the ins and outs of the angry chest, be sure to head over to our article here! We’ll tell you everything you need to know about this new tool introduced to the Sea of Thieves.
The skeleton crews that live in the Devil’s Roar are not the only ones with a particular interest in the Chests of Rage. Duke is looking to get his hands on the steaming cursed chest himself. He’d like to fight fire with fire and turn the Chests of Rage back on those pesky skeletons!
Duke has tracked down the locations of buried Chests of Rage and is offering up Raging Bounty Voyages for any pirate willing to take the risk. These voyages will lead you into the Devil’s Roar to hunt down a Chest of Rage. You’ll then return back to one of the original three regions to take down a couple challenging threats!
Time to set sail!
Raging Fire Bounty
The first chapter of this voyage no matter which region you have chosen will always send you to The Devil’s Roar. It makes sense that the Chest of Rage lives in Flameheart’s fiery home turf.
The chapter includes a single X Marks the Spot quest. You will have three to four Xs you will need to dig up on this quest. One of the Xs is guaranteed to reveal a Chest of Rage!
A nice perk of this new Mercenary Voyage is that any of the Xs have the chance of being guarded by an Ashen Key Master! So while you are digging up treasure, be on the lookout for one of these highly sought-after Skeleton Captains!
The second and final chapter in this voyage will have you sailing back to the region that the voyage is for. For example if you purchase the Bounty of Raging Ancients, you will end in The Ancient Isles.
Once the final chapter starts, you will receive a single Order of Souls quest. This quest will have you hunting down a Skeleton Captain on one of the islands in the region specified for the voyage.
Upon arrival to the island you will need to hunt down the Skeleton Captain’s crew and defeat several waves of them before the Skeleton Captain shows their face.
Now would be a good time to work towards some of the new commendations that require you to kill multiple types of skeletons with firebombs. You will encounter each type of skeleton in the waves leading up the captain. Group the skeletons up to easy land a firebomb in the center of them!
One of these waves before the final Captain wave will spawn an Ashen Guardian! It will drop a quest that will lead to an Ashen Chest on the very island that you are fighting the skeletons on!
Once you fight your way through to the final wave, a terrifying surprise will present itself along with the Skeleton Captain. You can expect one of the three new Skeleton Lords to spawn!
Defeating this Skeleton Lord will reward you with a Skeleton Order. This Skeleton Order is for the same island and will lead you to several high-valued items such as a Captain’s Chest or a Rag & Bone Crates. The Rag & Bones crate will be super handy for pirates who were unable to complete their commendations for the past event involving the crates.
Defeat the Skeleton Captain the quest assigned you and you will have completed the Mercenary Voyage. Congrats on another job well done!
Legendary Bounty of Rage
The Legendary Bounty of Rage Voyage will have you completing four chapters instead of two. You can expect a lot more valuable loot in those two additional chapters!
It will start just the same as the original three Raging Bounty Voyages do. You will sail to the Devil’s Roar for a Chest of Rage in the first chapter and fight off a Skeleton Captain in the second.
The third chapter will have you digging up loot with a X Marks the Spot quest and the fourth and final chapter will be another Order of Souls quest.
This final chapter will have you fighting both The Duchess and The Two-Faced Scoundrel on the final Captain’s wave! You can expect both to drop Skeleton’s Orders so be sure to pick those up to take advantage of all the possible loot this voyage has to offer!
Where do I sell the Chest of Rage?
So you completed the voyage and have this furious cursed chest in hand. What do you do with it?
There are two options when you are ready to sell the Chest of Rage.
As it is a chest you can expect that the Gold Hoarder Trading Company would like to get their hands on them. You can sell your Chest of Rage to the Gold Hoarder found on any of the seven outposts.
If the coast is clear at The Reaper’s Hideout then you can try for a successful delivery to The Masked Stranger. She is also accepting Chests of Rage and will pay you double of what the Gold Hoarders are paying.
