So, you’ve completed the Shroudbreaker and Cursed Rogue Tall Tales, have you? This means you’ve retrieved Captain Briggsy’s Shroudbreaker artifact, but it is missing a few stones.
Captain Briggsy might have known where those stones were, but there was no way she’d tell anyone…willingly. So, you slew Captain Briggsy, and brought her skull to Madame Olivia, hoping the Order of Souls could extract the information you sought.
The Order cannot extract a specific answer, but it can extract memories that may shed a bit of light on your way to finding the answers.
Madame Olivia extracted memories surrounding these stones, including names of people who once knew Briggsy. These people might have some insight on artifacts which may now hold the stones, but even their insight is incomplete. That’s where this guide comes in!
Aye, this guide helps pirates better understand the recollections of someone who once knew Briggsy: Tasha. There’s another tool you’ll likely want by your side: the interactive Sea of Thieves companion map. This map has all known locations for each of Tasha’s stories.
You can find the web version of the interactive SoT companion map here.
Of course, if you’d rather use the interactive map on your phone or tablet, you can use the SoT companion app.
The Legendary Storyteller Tall Tale: Step by Step
Step 1 – Starting the Legendary Storyteller Tall Tale
Sail over to Ancient Spire Outpost. Head up to the tavern, and give Tasha a visit. On her tavern counter, you’ll see the book for the Legendary Storyteller Tall Tale.
After you and your crew vote on the book, stick around. Tasha will tell you a bit more about the book that has just been added to your Map Radial.
It turns out, when Tasha was little, Briggsy would come into the tavern and tell Tasha of her adventures. Fascinated, Tasha would draw recreations of the stories she heard. Tasha is now giving you those childhood drawings to help you find any remnants of Briggsy.
Briggsy likely thought nothing of regaling a child with tales in a tavern. But now, these tales might just lead you to a missing Shroudbreaker stone!
Step 2 – Find the Chalice Key, the Crown Key and Briggsy’s Chest
The Tall Tale book added to your inventory will come with three stories. Below you will find the solution to each story.
Following the drawings for Smallest Boat, you will start at Golden Sands Outpost. From there you will sail through two huge rocks in the water past another outpost. This outpost is Sanctuary Outpost. Past that is Lone Cove. Sail on over to Lone Cove.
The book mentions the treasure being “out of sight”. Using that and the drawing of a cave with a rowboat, we know that one of the three quest items will be located in the cave to the North West of Lone Cove. Dig in front of the rowboat to find the one of the three quest items.
Fish Friends will have you finding one of the three quest items on Mermaid’s Hideaway. You will need to get yourself on top of the North most pillar of the island. You can use a cannon from your ship to get there and use the palm trees on the pillar as a backboard to stop yourself from over shooting.
You will find one of the three quest items here on top of the rock pillar.
Treasure Adventure will have you digging up treasure at the uncharted island at K9.
From Dagger Tooth Outpost head to Shipwreck Bay. Get on ship bow on Shipwreck Bay to find direction. Head towards the island with shipwreck and hole in the middle of it. Swim down the center hole of the island to spot one of the three quest items on a rock in the water amongst the shipwreck.
The story of Baddies Attack takes you to Old Salt Atoll. One of the three quest items is located in the ground at the bow of the shipwreck on the island.
The story of Naughty Man will have you traveling to Scurvy Isle. Dig next to the small rock on East side to locate one of the three quest items.
Head on over to The Crooked Masts if you have pages for Monster Hunting. Once there, find the bow of a shipwreck sticking out of the water on the South West side of the island. Go there and head to the bottom of the Shipwreck. You will find one of the three quest items there in the water.
You will find yourself at Thieves’ Haven. The Tale item you are looking for will be on the top level of the island in front of the three headed statue.
Kraken’s Fall will be the island you are looking for. The item in question is hiding on top of a kraken skeleton on the North beach.
You will find the Tale item you seek on top of Plunder Valley in front of a prominent bird statue. Head to the upper level of the island to find it.
A celebration was had on Wanderer’s Refuge. You will find your bearings for the Tale item near the well landmark found in the center of the island.
Crook’s Hollow is your point of interest for this story. Just East of the bridge on the South middle level of the island will be the Tale item buried awaiting your discovery.
Solving these stories will have you digging up the Crown Key and Chalice Key. Doing so will unlock The Storied Crown commendation and The Storied Chalice commendation respectively.
Step 3 – Dig Up Ancient Crown
Using the plank of wood you find from Briggsy’s Chest, you will locate the final item in this quest. The plank of wood will have holes in it that will line up with prominent features of an island.
Turning the plank over while it is equipped will reveal coordinates on the back of the plank. These coordinates will take you to the island the plank belongs to.
Below are some of the islands that the wood plank will be used on.
If the plank of wood you find from Briggsy’s Chest is for Mermaid’s Hideaway, you will need to line up the cutout with the rock pillar to the north and the rock formation in the pond. After lining up those rock formations, the small cutout will lead you to the location to dig up the Ancient Crown.
If the plank of wood you find from Briggsy’s Chest is for Discovery Ridge, you will need to line up the cutout with the shipwreck located to the West of the island. After lining up the plank with the shipwreck, the small cutout will lead you to the location to dig up the Ancient Crown.
If the plank of wood you find from Briggsy’s Chest is for Smuggler’s Bay, you will need to line up the cutout with the main arch of the island that has a rope bridge. Stand inside the bay and face South. After lining up the plank with the rock bridge and the overturned rowboat, the small cutout will lead you to the location to dig up the Ancient Crown.
If the plank of wood you find from Briggsy’s Chest is for Plunder Valley, you will need to line up the cutout with the Eagle rock formation on the West beach. After lining up the plank with the rock formation, the small cutout will lead you to the location to dig up the Ancient Crown.
If the plank of wood you find from Briggsy’s Chest is for Cannon Cove, you will need to line up the cutout with the main “cannon” rock formation and the rocks in the water on the North West beach. After lining up the plank with the rocks, the small cutout will lead you to the location to dig up the Ancient Crown.
If the plank of wood you find from Briggsy’s Chest is for Lone Cove, you will need to line up the cutout with the middle rock standing South by South East. After lining up the plank with the rocks, the small cutout will lead you to the location to dig up the Ancient Crown.
You will want to use the carved plank at the highest peak located on the South West side of the island. You will line up the plank with the large tall rock that has a tree on it and a boulder to the right.
You will stand on the South West small islet and line up the plank with the bow of the ship and the highest point of the island. Matching your plank with those two features will show you where to dig for the Ancient Crown.
For Kraken’s Fall, you will head to the North West beach and line up your plank with the shipwreck that has a Kraken’s Skull on it.
Shark Bait Cove
Head to the center of the island and use the middle shark statue to match the carved plank.
Digging up the Ancient Crown will unlock the Tasha’s Dream commendation.
Step 4 – Return to Tasha
With the Ancient Crown in hand, head back to Ancient Spire Outpost to return it to Tasha in the tavern. Giving her the crown will unlock The Legendary Storyteller commendation.
