As you sail through the world of Sea of Thieves, you will encounter a series of puzzles that you must solve in your log of tasks, whether it is cruising Gold Hoarders, Tattered Parchment from a barrel or found in a message in a bottle. There are a lot of coincidences in these puzzles and there is a possibility that someone will take you to a dangerous island known as Shipwreck Bay. In the puzzles at Shipwreck Bay you can find the Blackwyche ridge on the island.
Finding Shipwreck Bay
The first part of each puzzle simply makes you go to your destination, in this case Shipwreck Bay. This island is located in the area of The Wilds, which is located in the far northeast corner of the map.
Finding the Blackwyche ridge
As you step into Shipwreck Bay, another piece of the puzzle will appear on your map. Again, there is an element of randomization, but it is likely that one of the other parts will direct you to The Blackwyche, which was the ship of the famous NPC Sir Arthur Pendragon. From this ship you can also launch a Tall Tale called Seabound Soul.
Blackwyche is a shipwreck found in Shipwreck Bay; you will want to land on the southeast beach. You will see Blackwyche divided into two parts – the ridge is in the back half of the ship, where the captain’s room would be. Approach the ship and climb the ladder up and there is a sign above the door to the captain’s cabin – this is the Blackwyche ridge. You can also communicate with the crest of the charter towards the progress of the season.
Crest of The Blackwyche puzzles
Due to the element of randomness, the puzzle that takes you to the top of Blackwyche may read differently and require different actions. Here are some variants we know about.
- Look for the ridge of Blackwyche, watch the weather, waiting for the light to hold high
- The ridge of The Blackwyche leads to the prey glistening, there hits the shack, I’ll listen
- All the crest of Blackwyche’s secrets was once lost, the rumor of a shack
In these examples, the first example will require you to lift the lantern using a secondary fire button or trigger; The last two examples will make you play any naval shack with any of your instruments. By completing the puzzle task, you will create a glow and sound from your parchment and show you the next part of the guide.
Some players had trouble not recognizing their hut – our only suggestion is to try to play from all angles, from looking directly at the ridge to standing directly below it, or even inside the captain’s cabin near the ridge.
