How to get pets in Sea of Thieves

A pirate is only as strong as their crew, but you can't always count on your usual mates to be around in Sea of Thieves. Pirates aren't so different from us in that they love having an animal companion around to keep them company on long voyages. Pets can come in the form of your typical pirate animals like monkeys and parrots, but you can also get yourself a cuddly cat, dog, or fox as well. You can't go out and find one in the wild to tame like some other games. Pets in Sea of Thieves can only be obtained in one way, and we have the treasure map to lead you right to the answer.

How to get a pet

Pets were added around a year after the game launched, and have expanded to include more pets and outfits you can dress them up in.

Step 1: Open the Pirate Emporium shop either by visiting it in the game or through the main menu.

Step 2: Select the Pets tab on the top row.

Step 3: Choose which type of pet you want to purchase: Parrots, Dogs, Monkey,s Cats, or Collector's Pets. The latter option is just special skins for the existing pets.

Step 4: If you have enough Ancient Coins, you can simply purchase a pet. If not, your only two options are to grind them by killing Ancient Skeletons and hoping you get some as a drop, reaching specific Renown levels and getting them as a reward during some seasons, or buying them with real money from the shop. Here's how much the bundles cost:

  • 50 coins — $2
  • 550 coins — $6
  • 1,000 coins — $10
  • 2,550 coins — $23
  • 4,250 coins — $35

How to use Discord on PS5
The Discord shop.

The go-to voice and text-chat platform for gamers the world over, it was rather surprising how long it took Sony to add Discord integration for the PS5. As it stands, there still isn’t a native Discord app you can use on the console. That being said, you can still use the Discord app on your phone or tablet to access voice chat on the PS5. We’ve put together this guide to teach you how it’s done.

How to get a Master Ball in Pokemon GO
A master ball in a lab in Pokemon GO.

Everyone who has played a Pokemon game knows that the most powerful ball is the legendary Master Ball. Most games only provide you with one of these overpowered items that lets you catch any Pokemon you want without a fight, but Pokemon GO didn't include them at all for many years. That all changed in 2023 when they were introduced as part of a special event and finally gave trainers the chance to add one to their bags. If you log in today looking to get one for yourself to have ready for when you find that elusive Pokemon you've been struggling to catch, you won't see any signs of how to get one. Like any good professor, we will instruct you on all the things you need to know about getting a Master Ball in Pokemon GO.
How to get a Master Ball
As mentioned, Master Balls were first introduced as a special event in which players could complete limited-time research tasks to earn one. After that event ended, it wouldn't be possible to get one again until months later as part of a different special event. The final opportunity occurred in November 2023, but since then there has been no way to earn a Master Ball in Pokemon GO.

As of the time of this writing, there is no ongoing event or research task in which you can earn a Master Ball. The next opportunity will be between May 14 and May 19 as part of the Catching Wonders event, which will be free for all players. As long as you start the Masterwork Research quest during this time period, you can complete it at any time and still earn a Master Ball.

How to visit Treasure Islands in Animal Crossing
Gameplay action from Animal Crossing: New Horizons for Nintendo Switch.

 

Decorating and designing your dream island in Animal Crossing: New Horizions takes a lot of Bells and materials. There are hundreds of ways to decorate your dream island, but the grind to get there can be a little daunting, especially with so many items being seasonal or part of holiday events. You are always encouraged to go out and visit your friend's islands via Dodo Airlines (as long as you have a Nintendo Switch Online membership) so you can trade for or snag some items from their islands. You might also have heard of special Treasure Islands you can visit. These are said to be jam-packed with all sorts of rare items to collect. As you know, you can't randomly visit other players' islands, so here's how you can reach them.
What are Treasure Islands?
Treasure Islands are islands made by players with the specific purpose of providing easy access to tons of items in Animal Crossing: New Horizions. These can include all sorts of DIY items, money bags, seasonal and holiday items, and more. However, be warned that some Treasure Islands are created by people who have modified their game. Grabbing an item from these islands shouldn't put your account at risk as we have yet to see any reports of players being banned for visiting a hacked island, but you should still do so at your own risk.
