Vaults of the Ancients, the newest update for Sea of Thieves, has finally been released. This new update brings with it a whole new voyage type, perfect for those who are bored of finding individual treasures of gold.
The story goes like this: the Gold Hoarders are starting to think that their Treasure Vaults are not as secure as they would like. As such, only those who are the most trusted are tasked to find the hidden Vault Keys and bring them back to the Hoarders (or open up the chests themselves!)
It’s worth noting that these Treasure Vault Voyages will only be made available to you only once you’ve reached level 25 with the Gold Hoarders. You will be given a compass that will lead you to map fragments that you will have to assemble once you have enough pieces. From there, the assembled map will lead you to a vault key.
At this point, you have two options: you can either sell the key and move on to other tasks or track down the Vault yourself for massive treasure. It’s a pretty high-risk task, though, as the door will close if you don’t get the treasure in time.
Vaults of the Ancients also includes the much-awaited feature: dogs. The Pirate Emporium is now full of dog options, all of which are looking for new pirate owners. You’ll find different breeds such as Inus, Alsatians, or even Whippets.
The Emporium has dogs with different coat patterns, too, so you’ll definitely find a new sea companion that’s to your liking. If you’re the type who likes things to match, you can even gear up your canine with a suitable outfit.
