Sea of Thieves: Fort of Fortune Guide

There are several world events in Sea of Thieves, but one of the hardest is the Fort of Fortune, but the rewards make it well worth the trouble.

In Sea of Thieves, players have to battle some ferocious wild beasts, villainous pirates, and the dangers of the sea itself. But between battling Sea of Thieves creatures like the Kraken and stealing gold, players can also join in world events to earn extra booty. One of these rewarding events is the Fort of Fortune.

Finding the Fort of Fortune

In order to fill their ships with loot from this world event, players will have to find it first. The event is extremely rare, so players should keep their eyes open for the signs of one of these events beginning. The possible locations for a Fort of Fortune are any of the Sea of Thieves skeleton forts located on the map out at sea. These are:

  • Keel Haul Fort
  • Skull Keep
  • Crow’s Nest Fortress

Signs that Fort of Fortune is Live

Sea of Thieves Season 2 players will need to look out for two signs that a Fort of Fortune is about to be live: a loud horn and a scarred skull in the sky. The horn noise can be heard just about anywhere on the map, but it can be fairly quiet and easy-to-miss if players aren’t close by. Thankfully, the massive, red-eyed skull can be see from much further away. It looks similar to the floating skull usually hanging over a skeleton fort, but this one is much angrier looking. Look for glowing red eyes, glowing red scars, and a soft red glow all the way around the skull in the sky.

Defeating the Fort of Fortune

Players will have to defeat 18 waves of enemies in order to win against Fortune; this world event doesn’t have easy enemies either. Expect to have a hard fight ahead, and prepare with rare and powerful Sea of Thieves items to deal as much damage as possible. These 18 waves have an undead theme, and will consist of the following:

  • Waves 1-15: Bone, Gold, Plant, and Shadow Skeletons will attack, sometimes accompanied by a Skeleton Captain.
  • Wave 16: The Mutinous Helmsman
  • Wave 17: Duchess and the Two-Faced Scoundrel
  • Wave 18: The Ashen Lord
