Sea of Thieves introduced a new form of progression for users to achieve, known as Milestones.
Milestones aren’t exactly achievements like fans would find on their Xbox Live account, but they’re permanent trackers in the game itself that show numbers for just about any activity.
These new milestones are tracked for players as individuals with any ship they lead during their pirate career. Milestone progress can be viewed at any time to see where they are at.
How to Advance Milestones in Sea of Thieves
Players can view their stage progress in the Ship’s Log, which can be found in the game’s main menu. They are separated by Pirate Milestones and Ship Milestones.
Pirate milestones progress through activities that users complete in a crew with a captain. Ship milestones progress based on the activities they perform with a crew on their ship.
Individual players and each owned or commanded ship in Sea of Thieves have their own progress to track in the ship’s log. Each new ship will have its own milestones to achieve.
Milestones can be anything from collecting gold and finding treasure to defeating enemies or navigating a certain distance. Players should check their milestone list to see how far they have progressed in a particular activity.
As they progress through a stage, its class will increase. This allows users to access trinkets in the Shipbuilder’s Shop at any Outpost and can be tracked by pinning the milestone in the ship’s log and viewing the milestone’s alignment.
Stage alignments are based on a pirate’s style of play. This is new to Sea of Thieves Season 7, with seven normal rosters and an additional roster made available for Pirate Milestones.
Milestone alignments can be forced by adhering to a specific style of play. They can also be completely organic if players decide to play their way and wait to see the level of the milestone lineups.
Here are the milestone alignments in Sea of Thieves:
- The gold digger: It is centered on the sale of loot and treasures. These milestones track the businesses players are selling to, the total treasures sold, and the gold earned from those sales.
- The traveler: With a focus on voyages, this alignment of milestones keeps track of the number of miles traveled, number of days at sea, quests completed, and number of islands a pirate has visited.
- The emissary: This roster has milestones based on playing as an Emissary and earning gold for the top five companies in the game.
- The hunter: The Hunter is a lineup of milestones dedicated to fishing and cooking.
- fears him: Users who enjoy PvE combat will fit this Milestone roster. It tracks the number of forts conquered, enemy mobs defeated, and cannonballs fired.
- Thief: The Rogue simply focuses on life at sea as a carefree pirate. It tracks when players drink gog, take a nap, sit for long periods of time, or participate in singing a song.
- The unfortunate: Players who often find themselves in difficult situations will see this milestone alignment. It pulls the numbers for how many times they died, rode through a storm, sank their ship, lost treasure, or even caught fire.
- The captain: The final milestone alignment is for individual pirates and captains. It is a simple tracking tool that looks at the number of ships owned and ordered, as well as the crew on board and the finishes made.
Sea of Thieves Milestones can be sorted by these alignments so users can see what their playstyle is. It also gives them an idea of how close they are to creating a class and adding to available trinkets .
