Sea of Thieves Chest of Sorrow Guide – Where To Find, How To Manage

The Sea of Thieves Chest of Sorrow is a very enigmatic chest. Not only does it behave in a way that is completely different, finding it is not an easy feat either. For this reason, having a guide which can give you information about the Chest of Sorrow is always a good thing. This Sea of Thieves Chest of Sorrow Guide will give you all of the information pertaining to the Chest of Sorrow. We will tell you where can you find this chest, how to acquire it, and how to care for it when it is on your ship.

Where to Find Sea of Thieves Chest of Sorrow

The main thing to remember is that the loot in Sea of Thieves is procedurally generated and completely randomized. This means that finding this chest without having a specific indicator pointed to it as a part of the quest can be very difficult.

However, remember that the Chest of Sorrow usually appears in quests which are more difficult and advanced than the usual ones. Any quest which has a higher cost than usual will have a decent chance of having the Chest of Sorrow as the chest that you need to find, so try to take those to find this chest.

How to Manage the Chest of Sorrow

Once you have found the Chest of Sorrow, you will notice something very peculiar about it. After a short time interval, it seems to cry and have huge bursts of tears flow out of it (hence the name ‘Chest of Sorrow’). If you are on land, then it will not really be a problem for you. However, if you are on a voyage, then this can end up being a huge pain and a source of constant worry, especially during fights.

Essentially, since the Sea of Thieves Chest of Sorrow will constantly leak water onto the ship, you need to have a bucket in hand and need to be on a constant lookout for whenever the next bout of sadness seems to enrapture the chest. Whenever that happens, quickly grab the bucket and remove all of the water from your ship so as to ensure that it does not start to sink.

Lastly, remember that the Chest of Sorrow will float away if left in the water, so you need to have a player stay behind and tend to it when exploring different islands with the chest in your possession. It is best to simply hurry back to the outpost when you have this chest in your possession so that you can reap its massive reward rather than lose it to a natural hazard or another pirate crew.
