The world of Sea of Thieves offers countless pirate-themed activities for you to experience. While some are easy to stumble upon, others can take time to encounter. If long sailing sessions are not on your horizon, it can be challenging to partake in every possible adventure, let alone discover them all.
With the Quest Table, you no longer have to wait for a specific World Event or sail across the map to begin your next Tall Tale. Instead, you can quickly jump into your desired experience as soon as you start by diving beneath the waves and resurfacing where you want to be!
You’ll want to interact with your ship’s Quest Table to get started!
The Quest Table
The Captain’s Table is no more, and in its place is the Quest Table. Instead of purchasing Voyages from Trading Company representatives, you’ll interact with the Quest Table to choose the exact experience you want at any time, as often as you like. You can choose from any Voyage and Tall Tales you’ve unlocked.
You no longer need to purchase, store, and manage Voyages. That goes for Captains as well! You can now use Captain’s Bookshelf to hold a few more Trinkets!
If you choose to sail to your Voyage or Tall Tale, you’ll sail as you normally would across the sea to where you need to go.
If you choose to dive to a Voyage or Tall Tale, you’ll dive beneath the waves, migrate to a new server, and resurface immediately facing your destination.
Sailing vs. Diving
When you sail to your Voyage, you’ll raise anchor, lower your sails, and sail to your destination. When you dive to your Voyage, you’ll take your ship to open water, dive beneath the waves, and quickly resurface on a new server at your destination.
While diving to a Voyage is always faster, there are some limitations you’ll want to keep in mind.
First, you’ll lose any treasure aboard your ship when you dive. You can only take your Resources, Resource Crates, and Emissary Flag below the waves.
Second, you can only dive when your ship is in open water away from islands or threats. You’ll need to be at least two squares away from a rival crew on the Map Table before you can dive.
Third, there is a cooldown after diving. You must wait ten minutes before diving again or until you complete the Quest you dove for, whichever comes first.
Since you can’t take any treasure below the waves, diving to your Voyage is a great way to start your sailing session. However, you’ll want to sail to your following Voyages once you start stacking loot.
Voyages On Demand
You can find every Trading Company Voyage in the Quest Table. As long as you have the required Reputation Level to unlock the Voyage, you can start it. Once you’ve found the Voyage you want, you can stay on your current server and sail to the Voyage’s location or change servers and dive to the Voyage’s location instantly.
Voyages from the Quest Table than before as most only include one island you must visit. Before, you might dig up four pieces of treasure across three islands, but now you can dig up all four on one island. The shorter Voyages allow you more control over how you play. If you only have a short time to sail the sea, you can still complete a Voyage. If you have more time to sail, you can do multiple Voyages and stack loot.
Completing Voyages from the Quest Table will also provide a small amount of Trading Company Reputation, so you can continue to dive between Voyages if you don’t have time to gather loot.
Voyages from the Quest Table are also more predictable as they will remain the same regardless of your Reputation Level. Instead of the Voyage changing as you level up, you will unlock a new version of the Voyage that offers increased challenge, risk, and rewards.
For example, there are two versions of the Treasure Map Quest. The Pirate’s Treasure Map Quest will have you digging up two buried chests on a small island. In contrast, The Captain’s Treasure Map will have you digging several buried chests on a large island.
You’ll also find Ashen variants of the Voyages that will have you sailing in The Devil’s Roar to complete them.
You can read more about Voyages On Demand over at our dedicated article here!
As you level up your Reputation Level for a Trading company, you will unlock Voyages from the Quest Table for them. Once you unlock a Voyage, it will stay unlocked, and you can replay it as many times as you wish.
You can view the Voyage in the Quest Table to see the unlock requirements for each Voyage.
World Events On Demand
Among the possible Voyages you can start are Raid Voyages. Raid Voyages allow you to vote and start almost any World Event on behalf of a Trading Company. What makes World Events started by Raid Voyages different from emergent World Events is the treasure rewarded by the Raid Voyage World Event is Trading Company-specific.
Since Voyages are Trading Company-specific, including Raid Voyages, the treasure you find during a Voyage is for that Trading Company.
You can dive to all World Events except for the Fort of Fortune, Fort of the Damned, and Kraken.
When you dive for a Raid Voyage, you will resurface on a new server at an uncontested World Event. Another crew can’t dive to your World Event, so you don’t need to worry about anyone popping out of the water nearby. However, other crews on your server can still sail over to contest the World Event.

Tall Tales On Demand
Voting on and diving to a Tall Tale from the Quest Table allows you to travel to the starting point of a Tall Tale instantly. If you started on Dagger Tooth Outpost but need to get to Plunder Outpost to begin the Cursed Rogue Tall Tale, you can now dive and emerge in front of Plunder Outpost instead of sailing across the regions to reach it.
It’s important to remember that you will always emerge on a new server when you dive for a Voyage, World Event, or Tall Tale. That means you can not use Tall Tales to reposition your ship on the same server to get closer to a Reaper’s Chest or ship flying an Emissary Flag.
You can also manage your Tall Tale Checkpoints from the Quest Table.
Trading Company Level Increase
You can now level up past Reputation Level 75 to 100 in all Trading Companies, excluding the Hunter’s Call. Reputation Level 50 is still the maximum level for the Hunter’s Call. However, reaching Reputation Level 100 isn’t the end of your journey with the Trading Companies.
Once you complete Reputation Level 100, you will earn a Distinction in that Trading Company, reset your level to one, and can progress back to Reputation Level 100 once more to earn your second Distinction.
When your level resets, you will not lose any cosmetics, commendations, or accomplishments. You’ll just be leveling up your Reputation Level again from the one.
You also cannot return to Safer Seas to earn Reputation after earning a Distinction and reseting to Reputation Level 1.
Trading Company Distinctions
Once you reach Reputation Level 100 for a Trading Company, you will earn a Distinction, and unlock a corresponding Ring of Distinction cosmetic for that Trading Company. You can earn Rings of Distinction for every Trading Company other than The Hunter’s Call, whose max level is still 100.
Five Distinctions are available for each Trading Company, meaning you can unlock five different Rings of Distinctions for each.
Trading Company Treasure
There are new pieces of Trading Company-specific treasure for you to discover. However, you can only find the new loot during Trading Company Voyages. While you’ll find less treasure during a Voyage, each item is more valuable, making the Voyages reward you with more Gold and Reputation than before.
For example, a Sailor’s Chest is the least expensive Gold Hoarder treasure you can now find during a Voyage. You can sell a Sailor’s Chest for about 1,000 Gold. The Captain’s Chest, the most expensive Gold Hoarder treasure you could find before, is worth about 800 Gold.
To find all the different pieces of treasure for a Trading Company, you’ll want to complete their Quests from the Quest Table and acquire and complete their Emisary Quests. The Emissary Quests for each Trading Company contain some of the highest-value pieces of loot the Trading Company has to offer. You won’t find them during regular Voyages you start from the Quest Table.
Trading Company Rewards
As you level up your Reputation Levels with each Trading Company, you will unlock Trading-Company-specific rewards such as Trinkets and, most importantly, a new costume! Each Trading Company has a new costume for you to unlock and purchase once you reach Reputation Level 100.
The emergent world of Sea of Thieves is now brimming with high-value treasure. Searching shipwrecks, following Quests from Messages in a Bottle, picking up Skeleton Orers, and taking out emergent Skeleton Captains will allow you to find valuable loot, including kingly treasure! The King’s Chest, King’s Bounty Skull, and Crown of Hope are worth more than most of their respective Trading Company treasures.
Fleet of Fortune
The Fleet of Fortune, an emergent-exclusive variant of the Skeleton Fleet World Event, holds the elusive Chest of Fortune during Season 11.
The Fleet of Fortune is mechanically the same as a Skeleton Fleet, where you’ll need to take on several waves of Skeleton Ships, ending with sinking a Skeleton Captain ship. The only difference is the addition of the Chest of Fortune in the pile of loot from sinking the Captain.
You can’t use the Quest Table to dive to the Fleet of Fortune. You can only sail to it when you see the red cloud in the sky so keep your eyes on the horizon!
