Sea of Thieves has received another free update and this one is called the Legends of the Sea. This is also actually a new tab in the Bilge Rats reputation tile, replete with several dozen commendations to unlock. These commendations take players all around the Sea of Thieves in search of locations where players have been commemorated, all in a bid to gather information for Umbra.


Legends of the Sea commendations guide

There are a whole lot of commendations to unlock as part of the Legends of the Sea tab in the Bilge Rat tile. There are commendations for dressing up and showing Umbra, commendations for finding Umbra’s journals, as well as the aforementioned commendations for finding in-game Easter eggs in honor of players.

Unlocking all of these commendations for Legends of the Sea is going to take a bit of time. However, there are a lot of doubloons to earn, so it’s worth the investment.

Below, the commendations are divided into the clothing options, the journals, and then the main areas where the Easter eggs for the players are hidden.
