Stage 1 – 1st playthrough


Disclaimer! At the moment the game needs to be completed a total of five times as the difficulty-related trophies do not scale down. Having spoken to the developers 3DClouds on their server they have confirmed in a future update they will have the difficulty trophies scale down. So this guide is at the moment a work in progress until that update arrives. Additionaly the RNG drop rate of Treasure Maps is very low at the moment, The devs have also confirmed that they will increase the drop rate in a future update.

Before you start here are some tips and tricks

  1. Use the bank, your ship can only carry so much cargo which will quickly fill up. Use the bank and you can access that cargo at any port to trade it later on and carry on picking up loot along the way.
  2. Head to the Golden Crab as soon as you can. The chef there will give you a side mission but also a fishing rod. After completing the mission he will give you an expert fishing rod and another quest complete this mission for the Legendary fishing rod. Fishing is a good way to gain extra XP and also gold. But you also need to find all 30 fish types for the trophy King of Fishing. Some of the fish are extremely rare. I spent 5 hours hunting down the last fish.
  3. If you do find fish that require the legendary fishing rod, make a note of where they are as they will have a fixed spawn this will save a lot of time later on.
  4. Head to Star Temple early on as you will get a Voodoo idol which will allow you to fight ghost ships. Ghost ships are very rare and only spawn at night, but they drop a lot of good loot and gold.
  5. Pee on those cannons! Get this ability as soon as you can. It reduces the cooldown greatly and you will be able to spam L2 R2 and take down ships or forts even at a much higher level than your ship.
  6. Other useful abilities include Ethereal navigation, Man-o-war and Shark attack
  7. XP you can farm XP early on before the mission Power to the pirates. Place your ship in front of any fort and use pee on those cannons to obliterate the fort. As you don’t have the ability to take over forts yet the forts will come back and you can repeat the process.
  8. Sell, Sell, Sell any equipment you don’t need. The game is a bit weird as equipment that is level 39 can have better stats than a level 50 rarer item for some reason. Offload anything you’re not going to use to get more money.
  9. Whilst the game has a market system where you can get more money for your resources at different ports depending on supply and demand. Any loot that you’ve scavenged or looted is free money any way. So don’t stress about making two extra gold coins by sailing to a port halfway across the map.
  10. You get free repairs at the Eagle’s Nest so return here to repair if you are nearby.
  11. The grind to level 60 for the trophy gets very slow late on, it’s recommended to use your ability points to upgrade XP gain early on. You can focus on which ever talents you feel you need for your build. I focused on dmg and health mostly. I didn’t focus on money acquisition as this is a bit slow at the beginning by the end you will have a lot more money than you can do anything with.

I would suggest playing the first run on the easiest difficulty as the game takes a little while to get used to but also because it is already long enough.

In addition to finishing the main story you should Collect all 30 fish, fish 50 times, conquer 30 settlements, sink 100 ships, Earn 100,000 gold from trades, sink all 8 sovereign pirates, complete the map, fully upgrade any settlement and trade each resource at least once. You should also find 30 Sunken treasures but as mentioned the RNG is very low and you can earn this trophy across playthroughs so grab as many as you can in this playthrough, continue working on it in the second playthrough and then return to this save afterwards for the final few you will need.

Stage 2 – King of the Seas difficulty


No comes the hardest part, King of Seas difficulty and permadeath. Make sure you are saving at every port. I would also recommend using a cloud or USB save as good practice. Avoid conflict early on as your ship will be weak. The Frigate is a good ship to unlock as soon as possible as it is a good mixture of speed and power. p Focus on looting, fishing and blowing up red barrels, until you get pee on those canons. Please also make note of which missions force you to fight and prepare accordingly.

King of Kings
Unlock all the trophies

ahrrrr Good job matey.


King of treasures
Find 30 sunken treasures

Sinking Plunder Ships, Ghost Ships, Royal Commander ships and treasure ships will sometimes drop treasure maps. You access the treasure maps the same way you access the world map and press R1. The map will be one of the islands and you will have to look at the world map to match it. Then head to that island and navigate to where the X is and when you get close a small white circle (see picture 2) will emerge. At the moment the RNG is very low but the developers have mentioned they will be increasing the drop rate in a future update.


And a bunch of cuttlefish for me!
Fish successfully 50 times

Head to the Golden Fish and Chef Gustav will give you a fishing rod now you can start fishing. Now find fish anywhere in the ocean and stop next to them and press X to begin fishing. Please note you will need to upgrade your fishing rod two times by completing Chef Gustav’s two quests to catch certain fish.


King of commerce
Earn 100 000 gold coins from trade

This may sound like a lot but will actually come pretty early. At every port you can buy or sell goods. Each port has one commodity that is in abundance and you can buy cheap to sell at a different port for a better price. Each port also has one commodity in scarcity which you can trade for a high price. Additionally selling ship parts to the carpenter will also count towards this and parts after around level 15 will all sell for a 1000 upwards.

Carpenter

Ah, clear sailing now
Conquer 30 enemy settlements

During the mission Power to the pirates you will be introduced to taking over enemy settlements. Conquer 30 of them to unlock this trophy. An easy way to take over settlements is to park the ship in front of a settlement similar level to your ship activate the pee on the canons ability and spam the canons. It’s worth noting that taking over settlements will reduce the number of ships you can attack so if you are looking for treasure maps for King of Treasures it is worth waiting until you have that trophy before conquering all enemy settlements. Additionally you will get missions where you have to defend your settlements if you ignore these they will switch back allegiances and you can reconquer them.


King of Seas
Complete the game in King of Seas difficulty

This is the hardest difficulty. The main features of this difficulty are Bounty calculation bonus: 300% and Permanent death.


Scourge of the seas
Sink 100 ships

Sinking ships may seem hard early on as your ship is very weak. Later on though you will be able to purchase stronger ships with more canons and will have better upgrades. This should come very naturally during your first playthrough especially if you are hunting treasure maps. It is recommended getting the ability pee on those cannons stopping your ship and letting the other ship come into range. Then activate the ability and spam L2R2 until the enemy ship is destroyed.
