Sea of Thieves is getting its biggest and most exciting update yet. Tied in with Season 3, the new “A Pirate’s Life” update will see this swashbuckling world cross swords with Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise. Not only will this season revolve around a brand new storyline, but it will introduce a host of changes to the game’s world. Along with new story content, players can complete challenges tied to the new Tall Tales. Finishing all of these will unlock new cosmetics for your pirate, so it’s definitely worth beating as many as possible. One of these requires you to find five of Silver Blade’s journals in The Sunken Pearl.
Silver Blade Journal Locations
The first of Silver Blade’s journals can be found in the first siren puzzle room. After you defeat the Ocean Crawlers, head towards the large door on the left and go behind the wreckage. You’ll see the journal lying on the ground between the door and bits of the ship.
In the same room, once you raise the water once and launch yourself up to the next set of coral a second wave of Ocean Crawlers will attack. Defeat all of the Ocean Crawlers and then complete the third Siren Puzzle to raise the water once again. The second journal is actually above you on a ledge and is only accessible once you raise the water. After raising the water, just swim to the little alcove where the journal is and read through it to complete this step.
You won’t find the third journal until you are swimming back outside by the Black Pearl. After you are ambushed and attacked by the sirens, grab the gem that’s floating in the water. Now follow the chains holding down the Black Pearl to the door and put the gem into the statue on the right. Finish the puzzle and swim inside once the door lowers. Near the back left corner, you’ll see wrecked parts of a ship. Inside the boat will be the next of Silver Blade’s journals.
Swim until you reach the flooded room with the siren statues. Complete the puzzle to drain the water and then kill the next waves of Ocean Crawlers. Make sure to use the tridents resting on the rock, as they do a ton of damage to these foes. After the water is drained, you’ll see a small pool of water by the siren statue holding an orb. Jump into the water and turn 180 degrees. You’ll see another large portion of the broken ship with the fourth journal resting on top of it.
Finally, make your way into the pully puzzle room and tug the ropes to lower the curved part of the ship. Quickly hop onto the curved section of the ship once it’s lowered and ride it up to the second floor. Follow the rocky path on the right towards the remains of the captain’s chambers and head inside via the door. You’ll see the final journal resting on the table. Collecting this will complete this commendation, so you won’t need to worry about searching for any more books in this chapter.
