Titles are important to many players, they show what the player has achieved to others, while also telling a little bit about them personality wise, this guide is here to show you what your title says about you and others!
PLEASE NOTE THESE 3 THINGS!
- Everyone is free to use what title they want, so this guide will never be 100% accurate, so if I’m wrong somewhere, just remember this is from not only my, but other people’s experiences ingame, and everyone has a different experience with other players.
- There are hundreds of titles in the game, I will go over as much as I can, but not all since not every title isn’t being used enough in the game by enough people to create a character.
Plus this guide can only go for so long.
- Some of these will be over exaggerated for comedic purposes… well I hope you find them funny…
Welcome to Sea Of Thieves! A cruel but yet fun PvPvE Open World Pirate Simulator, anybody can be your best friend, your worst nightmare, or just some guy staring at you eating grubs, always be on your guard, the game can be horrible for new players, but only the toughest will stay.
Treat Sea Of Thieves like the Salty Spitoon like in Spongebob, a place where people are tough hangout and can endure anything, fights can breakout whenever or whatever reason, and if you don’t like it I heard Weenie Hut Jr’s is always open (CoD) or if even that’s too tough for ya, Super Weenie Hut Jr’s (Fortnite) is always open.
Ok you’re not fooling anyone, this guy isn’t a new player, he’s trying WAY too hard to look like a new player to try and trick you into having a false sense of security, and then kill you and steal your loot.
Shoot these guys on sight.
REAL new players don’t use this title, they either don’t know how to equip titles or by the time they do, they already have access to better titles.
Out of all the Emissary Titles unlocked by levelling them up and buying them, this is the one that’s the most used of all time, it’s one of the “baby’s first titles”, it’s a nice little title to show off to your friends on how well you’re doing, while they might be cheering for you to keep going, you’re gonna be easy pickings for more experienced pirates.
Keeper of a Glittering Hoard
Still a young Gold Hoarder at heart, you wear this with pride knowing that the Gold Hoarders are your favourite place to sell, you have a long journey ahead of you into becoming a true member of the Gold Hoarders, from grabbing the Emissary Rewards, to the Curse and other items, but you see a bright future ahead of you.
Just don’t let other crews see you, they might want to steal that future from you.
Lustrous Gold Hoarder
Well done! You finally maxed out the Gold Hoarders! Giving you the best possible quests to grab some easy money for Emissary Value and extra rewards! You’re a prize for anyone to sink, but at this stage, I think it’s safe to say, you can take on most ships with your crew.
Hoarder of Grog Soaked Gold
A total bro, you just want to drink up, play music, make friends and go crazy, however when in danger, you will sink anyone or anything that threatens the peace. After the danger is gone, it’s back to playing games and shooting fireworks with any new friends you can find.
Also while sailing from A to B, no matter where they are, you will divert the entire ship towards a Shipwreck to find other bits of treasure.
Hoarder of Treasured Tears
A PvPer who is always either a Reaper Ship or unmarked ship who attacks everyone in sight, you don’t care for 90% of treasures since you have everything you want already, and just want to have fun killing people, regardless of how they feel ingame, forums, Discord or Reddit.
You’re a fun tryhard, you understand the pirate thieving game being a game about… you know… being a pirate and being a thief, and you don’t getting too cocky or toxic and without spawn camping, which to be honest is something I have to take my hat of too you because for some players it isn’t easy to… and then put my hat back on because it’s kinda cold today.
Hoarder of Barnacled Gold
After hundreds of hours of grinding, you finally get the ability to buy an awesome set and have access to a decently rare title, the only issue is that regardless of your crewmates or allies opinion, you will happily ignore grabbing these chests in shipwrecks and skeleton ship drops for the rest of your time in the game because grinding for this commendation has drove you to near insanity, and seeing 1 barnacle on a chest triggers some kind of PTSD of your time prioritising this loot over most other bits of loot, seriously for those when you finish this commendation, you will hate Barnacle Chests, this isn’t a joke.
Hoarder of Ancient Tributes/Seeker of Ancient Vaults/Invader of Glittering Vaults
The second, and I mean THE SECOND the Emissary Ledgers reset, you’re back into grinding vaults to get the new hottest Emissary Ledger reward, usually hanging out in the Devil’s Roar on a Sloop or Brigantine farming as much gold as possible, just so you can grab an item you probably will end up using only for a short time… don’t deny it… I’m the exact same…
A new player who decided to follow a different path from the norm, while most go to the Gold Hoarders, you have decided the Order is more your flavour with their basic killing skeleton quests, and you often like to dress up more “cooler” and with darker colours, a foreshadowing of what you might become in the hours of playtime to come.
All the other Order Of Souls Promotion Titles
For some odd reason, excluding the very first promotional title, the most common people who use these are male pirates, with black or grey hair colours, large beards, and wearing dresses to go for a “wizard look”, they do an alright job, and some do look kinda cool.
Anyhow you’re hostile if you approach a player, however if a player approaches you first, you’re friendly, you prioritise Order Of Souls loot and Commendations above everything else, even as a Merchant or Gold Hoarder, and are currently grinding to unlock the Order Of Souls Curse, overall you’re a smart and cautious player.
Raider of Cursed Strongholds
Forts 4 Life, you will charge straight into them head on, fight anyone in your way to claim the Fort yours, skeleton bosses are no match for you and even the best of tuckers struggle to hide from your gaze.
The only people that can get on your good side are either new players or fishermen, since you have more than enough experience to fully expect foul play from other crews.
Scourge of the Damned
You’re a Pirate Legend who goes ALL IN with the Ghost themed items, like some Fort Of The Damned cosmetics, Pirate Legend Curse, Ghost Equipment, Soulflame Weapons and more.
You’re able to beat Ghost Ship Voyages and Flameheart himself in record time, and horde all the curse and ghost cannonballs to annihilate ships with, you’re a terror, but one who remains somehow under the radar to most players.
Banisher of the Spectral Flame
Even though you love the actual World Event, you hate Flameheart, 90% of the time all you want to do is take a perfect screenshot, either for a contest or just for fun, and all of a sudden orange Sans appears and ruins it, so you go running to your ship and bombard his armada and flagship until he leaves, than sail back towards your spot to take another screenshot… than he’s back, the cycle starts once more.
All Merchant Titles
This goes for all Merchant Titles as they’re so underused by so many players and all of them are pretty much used by one type of person, dedicated Merchants who travel from Outpost to Outpost delivering items from another Outpost or what they found while sailing, you often like to avoid fights and are open to alliances so you know at least one ship isn’t hunting for your items.
Congratulations! You have just become a Pirate Legend, along with this title, you’re wearing the full Pirate Legend Clothing Set, showing of to the world that you’re a Pirate Legend!
Only problem is that a majority of people don’t care as Pirate Legend isn’t super hard to get anymore, and most new Pirate Legends… aren’t that good… if anything it’s just bait to say “Hey look at me! I’m so cool! Shoot me!” sorry guys but this is how most people view you.
Guardian of Athena’s Fortune
You’re wearing the Athena’s Fortune Emissary Costume, grinding all the Commendations and levels to grab that sweet sweet ghost set you wanted for so long, slowly replacing your equipment, weapons and ship parts with items from the Ghost Set until you’re finally done.
Champion of Athena’s Fortune
While you wear this with pride, if anyone asks to do an Athena Voyage, you will scream “NO” straight back at their face, as after spending hours grinding Thieves Haven Runs and Emissary Quests, you have had more than a Lifetime’s worth of being an Athena Emissary, and would prefer kicking your foot against a concrete wall for 7 hours than doing one more Thieves Haven run.
Just like with the Champion Of Athena’s Fortune, you wear this with pride, but unlike them who screams “NO” at the thought of doing another Voyage, you stand there having a PTSD Vietnam styled Flashback to the time your ship sink while being Level 5 because one hole wasn’t patched in the ship, then you will end up leaving straight after.
Legendary Treasure Hunter
You wear this to trick people into thinking you did multiple Athena Voyages, but no… don’t lie, you didn’t, just like with me and others, you got the chests either from Fort Of Fortunes, Fort Of The Damned or from other players, you’re dedicated to the Athena’s, just not stupidly dedicated like the others.
Ok… no more Mr Nice Guy… Legendary Thief players are the worst players in the game…
- Is it because they’re bad at PvP? No
- Is it because they’re bad at Cannons? No
- Is it because they do some dumb plays? No
- Is it because they’re easy to trick to gain benefits out of them? No
- Is it because they’re bad at PvE? No
- Is it because they don’t look after ships properly? No
It’s because Legendary Thief players are incredibly toxic, full of themselves, and wear the exact same outfit as each other.
Legendary Thief players either wear the full Tucker Outfit or Dark Adventurer Set, pick a target, regardless of who it is, and tries to either sneak and steal, or sink them outright, while being very toxic to the player, regardless of their opinion.
Saying nothing at all while literally not giving a s***? They’re going to continue
Talking back? They’re going to continue
Letting them know you’re recording to report to Rare? Like they care, they’re going to continue
Legendary Thief players are hungry for attention and want any form of it, ironically there is one way to get attention they don’t like, killing them with a sword will get them to swear in chat or call you a noob for not double gunning.
There’s nothing wrong with sneaking onboard or sinking ships, just don’t be a toxic a**hole about it, don’t be a stereotypical Legendary Thief player, nearly every single one of them are bad people, just like Lime Green Scout Mains in Team Fortress 2, a disease that needs to be trampled and put an end to, I have seen countless of threads of these guys ruin not only new player’s attempts to try out the game, but also old players too, if you see someone being toxic, get some evidence and report them to Rare, this behaviour is unacceptable, it’s a shame a cool sounding title, is stuck being overused with horrible players like these.
Legend of Black Powder/Collector of Legendary Black Powder
As previously mentioned in my older guide “Types Of Players You Will Come Across In Sea Of Thieves” – [steamcommunity.com] , you’re a Keg Jockey, someone who knows when to use a Keg and how to store and collect them effectively, you’re an amazing threat not only to enemies, but to your own allies too, you’re a cool dude and often comes back from the Ferry Of The Damned with a Red Flame, either way you went boom, so you’re happy, even if your ship sank with over 1 Million Gold’s worth of treasure.
Legendary Sea Dog
Legendary Sea Dog players in Adventure Mode after spending like 83,249 hours in a dead gamemode for no one to care and get killed within 2 seconds by a player who never played Arena before. – [youtu.be]
Legend of The Sea of Thieves
An impressive title and commendation to earn, it takes a long time to earn this one, however the second another player comes in with the “Legendary Hunter of the Sea of Thieves” title, everyone ignores you and starts praising them instead, why they do this I have no idea, even though that title sounds cooler, it’s way faster to earn then this title, either way, you’re often just as good as a “Legendary Hunter of the Sea of Thieves” player and overall pretty chill, but you still get annoyed at “Legendary Hunter of the Sea of Thieves” title players when people say that title takes longer to get, both you and I know yours is harder, a months worth of fishing for fish, boots and hats isn’t the same as sinking 500 Skeleton Ships as a Pirate Legend, I still haven’t got either title as of writing this part of the guide (18/12/21), but I can easily safely say, I am WAY closer getting Legendary Hunter than I am getting “Legend of The Sea Of Thieves”, and I’m about to hit 700 hours!
Legend of The Deep
Despite owning this, you never fished once, you love to dive into shipwrecks looking for fish and other bits of treasure, along with raiding barrels in the ocean and other ships just to find one fish and sell it to the hunters, this is smart since you’re avoiding fishing and avoiding having a mental break down from sheer boredom of fishing, but even you know that you will need to fish one day to catch a certain fish to unlock certain items… trust me that day will come, it happens to everyone eventually…
NEARLY All Arena Titles
You wear this with pride that you took part in the Arena, regardless of your level and what title you’re wearing, you like this title and you love it.
Everyone else however just sees you as a tryhard and tries extra hard to kill you to annoy you… trust me we do it, killing “Master Of Arms” Players never gets boring.
Master of Arms
You use this title’s reputation to scare enemies into thinking you’re a dangerous threat, and while 200 Arena kills is impressive, it’s not compared to the other Sea Dogs titles and commendations since it’s 200 kills with anything, because of this while you may scare newer players, older players will ignore your bluff and target you, yes they see your bluff, but you’re still a dangerous threat, but not as dangerous as you think you are.
And before you say “this is pure bs” or something like that, when I started playing around 20-50 hours Sea Of Thieves with a friend, both still horrible at combat as we always ran from nearly every fight, but we managed to sink a hyper aggressive Master of Arms player and his friend’s Reaper Sloop twice, steal all their loot, sell it, and then baited their ship to follow our ship while it was empty, and voted to scuttle the ship, watching the Master of Arms sloop follow and then scuttle itself and it found nothing to steal.
Trust me, you might think you’re cool with this title, but the only ones who will fear you are new players, and even then, they can still clap your cheeks.
Master Hunter/Captain of The Killer Whale
You’re a chill dude still fishing to grab the ultimate reward the Hunter’s Call can bestow upon those deticated enough, you’ll happly go to forts and fish, letting anyone know that you just want to fish in peace, most ships will respect this since fishing isn’t very profitable and not worth the trouble of attacking you with since along not making lots of money, it’s hard to steal fish since you can just Portal Hop with them too or they’re gone forever if you sink with them in your barrels.
There are those ships that try to sink you regardless, but you’re more than happy to sink them back, or Portal Hop to a new server to find a new safe spot.
Legendary Hunter of the Sea of Thieves
After a Nightmare of a Grind, you got the ultimate Hunter’s Call reward, what do you do with it?
- Use the rage buidling up from the boring grind of the Hunter’s Call to fuel yourself for the rest of the game’s life
- Wear it at all times, never swap it, NEVER CHANGE IT, REMEMBER THE PAIN YOU WENT THROUGH FOR THIS DAM TITLE!
- Become easily without a doubt the most blood thristy pirate in Sea Of Thieves
- Double Gun Relgiously to stop all boarders and slaughter all enemy crews
- Always land every cannonball shot, blunderbomb, curse cannonball and chain shot
- Hit every deckshot perfectly at any range
- Do all of this without saying a word ingame
Legendary Hunter of the Sea of Thieves players, ya’ll are scary f***ers.
NEARLY All Reaper Titles
Either at one point or now your username has one the following inside it…
- Or some combination of numbers like 2009 or 1996
You also wear all black and the second another player looks at you, this is one of the many wonderful songs they think of, – [youtu.be] and if you play Team Fortress 2, there’s no doubt that you’re a Sniper main who uses the Anger Cosmetic, trust me we can read you like an open book.
Master of Fearless Freedom
You know, out of all the Reaper Titles, this is the only one to give itself it’s own unquie identity, this guy truely beleives what the title says, he doesn’t care about rules, treasure or whatever, he does what he wants freely, regardless of it effecting others or not, this is truely a cool guy and is awesome overall, he’s a tryhard, but a tryhard you can come to like.
Sailor of the Shores of Gold
Two types of players use this title.
The first type are people who have the Gold Curse, but don’t use it due to either negative stereotypes the curse can bring, or it clashes with their outfit, they’re often tryhard players.
The other type is someone who “Will totally get the curse someday” and will never get it, he’s often an easy kill and only managed to get this thanks to his friends carrying him throughout the Tall Tale.
Reaper of Fallen Flags
You only do exactly what this title suggests, you hunt Emissary ships for the flags, nothing else, you ignore other bits of loot, you really want those Commendations and those sweet Emissary Hats, can’t say I blame you, all 3 fit fantastically with certain sets and all 3 are great, even the Order Of Souls Headband is seriously underrated!
Friend of the Sea
You’re a chill dude open to alliances, you don’t care too much for loot and enjoy the game either by making new friends, or making someone’s day by giving them rare treasure, sadly you often leave yourself open to those who want to betray you, stay safe brother!
Destroyer of the Damned
For such a cool title, you expect people to take you seriously right?…
Sorry bro but 10 Skeleton kills during the whole of October is not impressive in the slightest.
Rare Crew/Rare Legend
Apparently these guys are part of an Indie Game company nobody has heard of called “Rare” or something like that, and known for games like… idk Yooka Laylee or something, either way these guys sound like they’re full of themselves or something if they managed th bribe the devlopers to get this in the game, instead of making high quality games! What lazy bas****s!
POV: You’re the hitman hired by Rare to kill me after they read this unfunny joke bit in a s*** guide where only like 5 people will actually read it all. – [discordapp.com]
You’re an old player, possibly a streamer or a Youtuber too who is a bit full of themselves and love other Brave Vanguard players, you’re really good at the game and overall a chill person, giving out advice to new players, however regardless of what you or other Brave Vanguard players do, seeing this title just makes me think of this. – [nocookie.net]
There’s nothing wrong about liking other players who have something similar to you, but Brave Vanguards do it to a whole other level, seriously if you play with a player who has this title or watch a stream or video on Youtube, they’re going to mention their title at least once.
You either wear the Ocean Crawler or Kraken Cosmetic Set and often hang out out with a friend or 2 who also wears one of those 2 cosmetic sets as well, on a Brigantine with random colour clashing cosmetics, while having a terrible mic, terrible connection, often mediocre at best while playing, prone to making common mistakes like beaching your ship while in a fight against a 4 Man Dark Adventurer Galleon, and every time you get a kill or die, you say something but your microphone is so bad no one has a clue what’s being said, however for some magical reason if you say a slur, everyone hears it crystal clear and reports you, stop being stupid, you stupid d***.
Legend of Cursed Iron
A master of the cannons, any type of ball or shot, you will hit your target, regardless if you win or lose a battle, you gave your all to the enemy ship and they can tell not to mess with you again unless they are ready for round 2.
You’re a heavily respected, but at the sametime one of the most feared players in the game.
Bearer of the Reaper’s Mark
You use the Flag Of The Reaper’s Mark all the time with pride, not only because it’s cool, but also you want to fight, threaten other ships, and overall you think sneaking and being stealthy is “g*y” or whatever and obliterate any Tuckers the second you see them, regardless of them being allies, enemies or on your own crew, you want them dead.
Legendary Cursed Voyager
You’re a fatty memelord pirate with access to programs allowing you to micspam ingame, and extensive knowledge on useless bugs and facts of the game, you don’t care for anything and just want to enjoy yourself in Sea Of Thieves, easily without a doubt the biggest Chad in the game.
Devil’s Cartographer/Master Devil’s Voyager
You love the Devil’s Roar, you’re constantly sailing around doing voyages in the area, attacking any ship brave enough to enter your terrortory, and love watching volcanoes erupt while drinking a grog with your best buddies, the Devil’s Roar is your home, and will never trade it away for anyhing else.
Master Kraken Hunter/Legendary Kraken Hunter
You ALWAYS drop anchor to kill a Kraken, even if you’re out of wood and cannonballs, you want that inky f***er to drop dead, you will happly snipe the tenticales with your Eye Of Reach and Blunderbuss any wrappers, you want that Krarken dead more than anything else, even if your crew bailed on you and is rowing away on a rowboat, you’re on board killing that Kraken!
Megladon Hunter Titles
Other than early Emissary Promotion Titles, these are often “Baby’s First Title” they just killed a Megladon for the first time, and are proud of it, they’re often not that good at the game, but they’re hopeful for the future and enjoy it so far, don’t kill the game for them by being d***s please.
Hunter of The Shrouded Ghost
You’re a payed actor because everyone knows there’s no such thing as The Shrouded Ghost, and all footage and screenshots of it are all fake heavily edited pieces of media by the Devlopers themselves to promote sales of the Shrouded Ghost Ship Set, Costume and Blunderbuss in the Pirate Emporium, YOU CAN’T FOOL ME, I’M TOO SMART TO FALL FOR SOMETHING LIKE THAT!
Golden Skeleton Captain/Mystical Skeleton Captain
You constantly wear the Krampus outfit and beg for a Skeleton curse to be added into the game every single time the developers either upload a video, do a livestream, or even breathe, nobody wants a skeleton curse more than you, and we get it, please shut up.
The Scholar Titles
You have a gambling problem and are constantly on the look out for treasures that sell for Doubloons or Ashen Keys and Ashen Chests to try and unlock all of the Ashen Dragon stuff, and by the time you got them all, you lose interest in them and stop using them after a short while.
You’re either a new player using this title as it’s the coolest sounding one you own, or you’re someone who constantly cannons himself over to islands and other ships, whether you make it to your target it or not is anyone’s guess because your consistency is non existent.
Raider of the Damned
You went on a Alliance Server for this title, don’t deny it or lie, admitting it doesn’t mean sh** to anyone since most people don’t care and went on an alliance server for this too, like myself and others, denying it though will just make you a target… little baby man… – [youtu.be]
Chronicler of Legend
You have the ulitmate patience, you can wait until days to pass by ingame, you can wait while the Earth slowly dies of old age, you can wait for the sun to slowly wither away, you can wait for the galaxy to slowly rip itself apart after trillions of years, you can wait for the final black hole to slowly fade away from the universe, you can wait for the final proton to decay, you can wait forever and ever, just to board an enemy ship and fall flat on your face after getting one blundered…
Oh well, time to try again!
Legend of Thieves’ Haven
Not only you wear this to prove you did this commendation without using the costume, you also taunt at people struggling to get a stable framerate while at Thieves’ Haven while you’re at like 150FPS no problem whatsoever.
Warsmith of the Flame
You use this title while wearing the Dark Warsmith Outfit, using the Dark Warsmith Weapons and Ship Set, and unlike every other player who wears that outfit and uses those items, you’re actually good at the game and can stand on your own.
Seriously you’re probrably the only player saving that oufit from being a “noob outfit” kinda like the Ocean Crawler and Kraken cosmetics, keep up the good work! That cosmetic set needs to be saved from that negative stereotype.
Legend of the Sunken Kingdom
Along with the Sunken Curse, certain cosmetics and ship parts, you LOVE the underwater themed items we have gotten over the years and use them all the time, you’re a dangerous threat, but at the same time open to alliances and love to pose your pirate for screenshots, you’re a pretty cool dude!
Thanks For Reading!
This was a really fun guide to make, however unlike my other guides, this one won’t be updated as much as my other guides, since this is more for fun, rather being informative compared to my other guides, I’ll keep an eye for spellchecks though!
