While you can use ship customizations to tell a story about your pirate visually, Trinkets can take your visual storytelling abilities to the next level!
Trinkets are an extension of your pirate’s identity. As you need to unlock most Trinkets by completing special requirements, you can use them to showcase a remarkable accomplishment, similar to one of the many elusive curses. The harder it is to unlock a Trophy, the more dedicated your pirate will appear to others.
What are Trinkets?
Trinkets are collectible items you can place around your ship at pre-set locations. There are two types of Trinkets: Ornaments and Trophies.
Ornaments are purely decorative and can be purchased immediately for gold from the Shipwright. Conversely, Trophies must be earned and upgraded through Milestones.
Each Trophy is locked and has a different requirement you must meet before you can purchase it from the Shipwright. You will be able to meet many of the Trophy requirements by progressing through Milestones while being a Captain. These requirements make Trophies an excellent way for pirates to visually tell a story about themselves.
Where can you buy Trinkets?
You can purchase Trinkets from the Shipwright at any Outpost across the Sea of Thieves. Speak with the Shipwright and select the Ship Trinkets to find every Trinket available to buy.
Remember, you will need to unlock the Trophies before buying them!
How much do Trinkets cost?
You will need to spend your hard-earned gold to acquire both types of Trinkets.
Ornaments have no requirement before purchasing and consequently cost less than Trophies. The cost of an Ornament ranges from 5000 gold to 25,000 gold.
Trophies, on the other hand, are much more costly! There are four tiers of each Trophy, with each tier being more expensive and harder to unlock.
The tiers are Admired, Prized, Treasured, and Cherished.
The cost for Trophies and their tiers are as follows:
- Admired – 100,000 gold
- Prized – 150,000 gold
- Treasured – 300,000 gold
- Cherished – 450,000 gold
How do you place a Trinket on your ship?
You can place Trinkets in pre-set locations, Trinket Mount Points, around your ship. These locations include your ship’s walls, shelves, barrels, and floor! As you might have guessed, Galleons have the most locations for Trinkets, while Sloops have the fewest.
To place a Trinket, walk up to any Trinket Mount Point on your ship and interact with the prompt, ‘Place Trinket’ to open your Trinket Box. Next, browse your Trinket inventory and select the Trinket you want to showcase. The Trinket will then appear in the pre-set location on your ship!
Once you place a Trinket, that Trinket will be there the next time you sail on your ship. If your Captain Permissions allow it, your crewmates will also be able to place their Trinkets around your vessel. However, your crewmate’s Trinkets will not be saved between sailing sessions.
Where can you place Trinkets?
All three types of ships have dozens of places for you to place your Trinkets. Look on the walls, barrels, shelves, and floor for any Trinket Mount Points you can use.
There are 19 Trinket Mount Points on the Sloop, 34 on the Brigantine, and 51 on the Galleon!
As a bonus, you can also place Trinkets inside the Tavern on any Outpost. Walk up to barrels and shelves to find a Trinket Mount Point and decorate the tavern to your heart’s content!
How do you upgrade your Trinkets?
There are four versions of each Trinket, each rarer than the last. To upgrade your Trinket to the next level, you must continue progressing through the relevant Milestone and reach the required Class. Once you unlock the next version, you must purchase it from the Shipwright.
The four versions of each Trophy are Admired, Prized, Treasured, and Cherished.
How do I adjust my Trinkets?
As you sail the sea, your Trinkets will move slightly out of place. You can interact with your Trinkets to nudge them back into their correct position.
Things that can nudge a Trinket out of place:
- Cannon fire
- Tridents of Dark Tides
- Lightning strikes
- Crashing your ship into islands, rocks, or other ships
- Waves from a storm
- Water flooding into your hull
