Welcome to the first Uncharted Content Update!

I’m going to preface this by saying that these will NOT always be weekly. We think it’s very important to roll out many of these features to you guys now to ensure a continued smooth play experience, but we believe in quality updates over quantity. Neverhteless, let’s jump right in!

Treasure Restock Passes & Treasure Trackers

These two items will be guaranteed to make the Open Seas even more active!

Treasure Tracker

When held, the Treasure Tracker will point you to the nearest chest, ready to be taken! This magical device has an unlimited range and can target chests of any tier. This EPIC item can be found in Treasure Loot or obtained from the Buccaneer Undead Kit, as discussed later!

Treasure Restock Pass

The Treasure Restock Pass will instantly respawn every single chest in the Open Seas, making them ready to claim once more! Upon usage, the entire server will be alerted to the restock, so be quick and make sure to use when when you can take the most advantage! This LEGENDARY item can be found in Treasure Loot, purchased from the Plunderer in the Trading Post, or obtained from the Buccaneer Undead Kit.


Random Drop-Off

Spawn camping is a thing of the past! You can now pay a small bribe of 100 Gold to the Captain prior to sailing into the Open Seas. This will cause you to be dropped off at a completely random location, far from a dock! Careful though… it might involve more swimming then you’re ready for.


Buccaneer

First Undead Kit: Buccaneer

The Buccaneer joins the Uncharted universe as our first Undead kit!

Meet the Buccaneer

The Buccaneer is a long-time Treasure Hunter. His skills and abilities rival all the rest in the Open Seas, and he discovers the best of the best time and time again. Now, it’s time for you to benefit from his wisdom…

Level 10 Contents

  • 1x Treasure Chest Restock Pass
  • 1x Treasure Tracker
  • 3x Tier 1 Treasure Chest
  • 2x Tier 2 Treasure Chest
  • 1x Tier 3 Treasure Chest
  • 1x Tier 4 Treasure Chest
  • 1x Tier 5 Treasure Chest
  • Full Iron Armor
  • Iron Sword
  • Diamond Shovel with Burial (Rune Boost: 4)
  • Skill Gem: Burial
  • 64x Steak
  • 2x Recall Potions
  • 2x Immunity Spirits

This Undead Kit is made for those that want to be the ultimate Treasure Hunters. Your starting level when you unlock the kit is not guarenteed to be Level 10.

What’s an Undead kit?

An undead kit is just like a normal kit, except that it gets better the more you use it! Every single time you summon an undead kit, it gains a little bit of Kit XP. On level up, the contents within will improve. You can also boost the Kit XP without summoning it, and instead by using Pearls if you wish. With enough Kit XP, it’ll level into the ultimate Level 10 form!

On unlock…

When you unlock an Undead Kit, you’ll gain a random amount of XP and your kit will be pre-powered up to a certain level (up to the potential Level 10!).

Get it now!

Speak to the Buccaneer in Port Nolem for details on his loot, as well as 2 free quests for obtaining your very own Burial shovel!

Every time you summon it, it’ll get better and better, up to the ultimate contents of Level 10!

Burial Skill Gem & Treasure Hunter Skill

Burial has been added as a potential gem throughout the world of Uncharted. When a tool is empowered with it, you have a chance to find ores just by digging! The chance gets better and better as you level it up…

Get Treasure Hunting!


Container Locks

Keep the theft away, container locks are here to stay! Players who are Veteran and up can now lock containers on islands: Chests, Trapped Chests, Furnaces, Droppers, Dispensers, and Hoppers. Locks will make the container they’re used on completely invulnerable to environmental damage, as well as prevent unwanted access by those that shouldn’t be using it.

Private Locks

Private locks prevent anybody that you don’t give access to, or who has at least the set rank, from accessing your lock. Look at a container and type /lock private to privately lock it.
Once a private lock is set, you can use the following commands:

  • /lock addplayer <player> to allow another player to use your container
  • /lock removeplayer <player> to remove a player from the allow list for your container
  • /lock rank <rank> to change the required island rank for this container (options: Veteran, Officer, or Owner.)

Password Locks

Password locks don’t require you to maintain an access list. Instead, players wanting to use the container simply must know the correct password. Type /lock password <password> while looking at a container to lock it with a password. Players that want to open your locked container will then use /cpassword <password> before right clicking it.

Public Locks

Public locks won’t keep anybody out of your stuff, but they’re great for preventing your container from being destroyed accidentally. When a public lock is used, anybody will still be able to open and use it, but it will not be breakable by anybody who doesn’t have the required rank, or by explosions. Type /lock public while looking at a container to lock it publicly.

The amount of containers that can be locked on an island at once is determined by your rank:

  • [Pirate] rank: No lockable containers
  • [Privateer] rank: 5 lockable containers
  • [Captain] rank: 15 lockable containers
  • [Admiral] rank: 30 lockable containers

Only the owner of the island needs the rank for the rest of the island to benefit! You can type /lock limits to view your limit and used container locks at any time.


Sea Gems

Sea Gems are global modifiers to the Open Seas, causing either chaos or peace. It’s up to you…

Calm Sea Gem

The Calm Sea Gem will globally make the Open Seas a more peaceful place to be. For as long as it’s active, all damage inflicted will be cut in half! You can acquire this gem from the Sea Keeper vendor (discussed below), or as an EPIC loot item!

Raging Sea Gem


The Raging Sea Gem is for those that want to make things even more chaotic. When activated, all damage within the Open Seas will be DOUBLED until it expires! We’ll make sure everyone is informed of the chaos by a red screen tint while they’re within the Open Seas. You can acquire this gem from the Sea Keeper vendor (discussed below), or as an EPIC loot item!

Gem Neutrality

Pirates are not helpless against the wills of a few. A Sea Gem’s effect can be countered by the opposite, at anytime, and bring things back to normal.

Sea Keeper

The Sea Keeper is the first vendor to reside within the Open Seas. If you don’t want to hunt for Sea Gems yourself, he sells them for a small price of 1,250 Gold. Where is he, though?
