How to complete The Legendary Search for Cursed Treasure voyage in Sea of Thieves

These voyages will be multilayered and will have you unearthing and handling lots of cursed treasure, such as the Chest of Boundless Sorrow, the Chest of Rage and the Chest of a Thousand Grogs. Each chest comes with their own challenge, but are all highly valuable.

When starting your voyage, you’ll receive a compass that will point to the direction of the closest cursed chest. Keep sailing in that direction until you come across the correct island. When on land, keep following the compass until it spins uncontrollably. Dig in that spot to unearth the treasure.

Chests of Boundless Sorrow will intermittently cry, filling your ship with water. You’ll have to continuously bail the ship out.

Chests of a Thousand Grogs will render any pirate who is holding it violently drunk, making transportation very, very difficult.

Chests of Rage will swell up with fury and fire. You must douse it with flames before it explodes, sending you to the Ferry of the Damned, and your ship and treasure to the depths of the ocean.
