Sea of Thieves Stars of a Thief Guide

Sea of Thieves has been a game in which a single mission can be done more than one way. Mean, the ending or reward is the same but the path leading to that ending or reward may differ. This difference varies from player to player. Hence, if the player has done a mission in one way, the other player doesn’t need to have to follow the same steps to do the same mission.

This property of the game makes it unique and diverse. Similarly in the quest of Stars of a Thief, there have been more than one possibility to do the mission, but all lead them to a single ending. In this guide, the player will get to know about every possible way which he can encounter during this mission.

Stars of a Thief

In this mission, the player initially has to collect two items and then place them in a specific place to get the third item. The second half of this mission is similar to that of the first tall tale of the game, which is the Shroudbreaker.  Hence if a player has done that, he can do the Stars of a Thief also with ease.  So to know everything regarding the Stars of a Thief, stick to the article till the end to unravel the mysteries in your mind.

Items to collect in the mission

In this mission, the player needs to collect two Star Jewels first. These jewels will lead the player to the third item and that is the totem. This totem will lead the player to the fourth and final item, which is the Shroudbreaker stone. Bring this stone back to Sudds to complete the mission.

Start of the mission

To start the mission, the player needs to go to the North Star sea post. At the sea post, go to the trader’s hut. On the right side of the trader named, Sudds, the player will find a book named Stars of a Thief. Vote for that book to start the mission. As the player votes, Sudds will start talking and tell the player all about the mission, a brief outlook. Listen to him, and then go to start the mission.

Find the Spyglass

The first item that the player needs to look for the chest which contains a magnifying glass called Spyglass. Different players might get the different locations of the chest counting Spyglass. There are two possibilities.

Twin Groves

The first possible location where the book can lead the player is the Twin Groves. If the book has some hints like Small Island made of two, beneath a tree between two large rocks, it means that the book is leading the player towards the Twin Groves Island.

After reaching the island, go to the south side of the island where the player will find a palm tree besides two giant rocks. Now the player needs to dig in front of that specific palm tree near two giant rocks. Dig there and the player will find a chest containing spying glass.

Rumrunner’s Isle

The next possibility is that the book will lead the player to the Rumrunner’s Isle. If the books give a hint like a face the north, solitary hanging lantern, it means that the books are leading the player to the Rumrunner’s Isle. Therefore go to the North Seaport to the rumrunner island.

It will be a pretty small island. The player needs to find a palm tree with a hanging lantern. As it is a small island, the player can that tree with ease. Dig beneath that lantern.  There the player will find the chest containing the Spyglass.

Hence these are the two possible locations where the player can find the Spyglass. The location of each island can vary from player to player. Therefore look for the mentioned clues for each island and figure out that on which island the player needs to go.

Find Star Jewels

Now the next part of the quest is to find Star Jewels. The player needs to find two Star Jewels to make progress in the game. Star Jewels are pretty tricky to find. The Star Jewels will spawn randomly on the islands. The player needs to collect hints from his respective book and decide where to go.

Constellations

The player will find a lot of constellations in the book. These constellations will lead the player in the right direction. Moreover, each constellation represents the direction by itself. To figure out the direction of the constellation, the player needs to look towards the sky through the Spyglass. The stars in the sky will make a specific constellation.

The point of that constellation will tell that the player needs to go to that side of the map. To ease the things, undermentioned all constellations along with their respective direction. The player can use this direction to figure out his respective islands.

  1. Sleeping Bear – South by South-West
  2. Obsidian Arrow – South-West
  3. Old Boar – North-East
  4. Tat-Pitch Boat – West
  5. Courting Crab – East by South-East
  6. Glimmer Fish – East by North-East
  7. Proud Eagle – North West
  8. Golden Feather – South by South East
  9. Great Kraken – North
  10. Sea Queen – North by North-East
  11. Iron Scarab – South-East
  12. One-Eyed Shark – South
  13. Singing Snake – West by North-West
  14. Unending Flame – West by South-West
  15. Great Warrior Warmonger – East
  16. Patient Turtle – North by North-West

Now the player needs to see which direction he needs to follow. The location of each island in the book corresponds to one or two constellations. In the book, there are nine possible islands which the player can get in his respective book. Out of these 9, the player needs to visit 2 islands. So it will vary from player to player on which two islands he gets out the nine. Under are mentioned all the nine islands, along with their constellations and the location of the Star Jewel.

1. Great Eagle Landing

The possibility is that the player will get the eagle landing chapter in the book. In this case, the player needs to go to Lone Cove. On the first page, the player will see a sea queen image and sea queen means that the player needs to go to the North by Northeast direction on the map.

And in this direction, the island is the Lone Cove, so the player needs to go there. The next image on the second page is of the eagle sitting on the rock. Moreover, there will also be a description of the eagle mentioned in the book. The location of the eagle is northwest, and hence the player needs to go to the northwest.

There the player will find a giant rock. Look through the Spyglass towards the top of that rock and the eagle constellation will be seen. Adjust your position in this way like the eagle is sitting on that rock, as seen in the book.

When the player aligns himself according to that, dig at the player where the player is standing now. After digging at that very spot, the player will find a Star Jewel there. Collect it, and move towards the next island.

2. A Hunt

The next possible chapter in the book the A Hunt. In this case, the player will need to go to the unnamed island at the location of J12. In this chapter, there will be a pretty long description of the island where the player needs to go. There will be many things mentioned in this chapter that will lead to the island.

There will be a description of Kraken, Falling Feathers, and The Arrow. So the player needs to align himself according to the constellation and their respective location. To cut the long story short, the player needs to go to J12 Island.

After that, from the description of the sunken Kraken, it will be evident that the Star Jewel will be under the water. So go southwest of the island and jump in the water. Go deep in the water from the coral reef path and the player will find another Star Jewel.

3. Lost an Eye

The next possibility is that the player will find the chapter named Lost an Eye and in this case, he needs to go to Sharkbait Cove. In this chapter, there will be a description regarding the shark and her daughter. So the player needs to find the shark-like statue and then go beneath it.

The shark daughter or statue will be in the middle of Sharkbait Cove Island. Go there, and then dive beneath the statue. There the player will find a Star Jewel, which can be seen from a distance shining under the water. Collect and move further in the mission.

4. Sea Queen’s Promise

The next possible chapter in the book can be Sea Queen’s Promise, and if this is the case, it means the payer needs to go to the Isle of Last Words. The player will find the picture of the queen and the boar and in this way, he can figure the island.

After going to the Isle of Last Words, the book will guide the player towards the western part of the island and go to the tip of the water. Swim down in the water and the start jewel will be under the water towards the left side. Collect and move further in the mission.

5. They were Voyagers

They were Voyagers is the next possibility which a player can get in his book. If that’s the case, he needs to go to the Discovery Ridge. The snake and shark will help the player in finding the direction. Use the direction according to the constellation to move in the right direction.

The book will guide the player to go to the tail of the Discovery Ridge. If the player sees from the map, the tail of the island will be evident. Hence go to the tail of the island. After that, go to the northwest corner of the island and then jump into the water. After diving a little, the player will find red Star Jewel glowing on the right side.

6. The Patient One

If the player gets a chapter named The Patient One, he needs to go to the Thieves Haven. After going there, the player needs to find the location of the crashed boat. In front of the crashed boat, if the player looked from the Spyglass, he would see the constellation of the turtle, pointing downwards. It means that the player needs to dig there to get the Star Jewel.

Moreover, the books will also guide the player to the specific location. Just read the chapter and try to figure out the direction. Otherwise, use the hints mentioned in this article.

7. Snake’s Deception

The chapter named Snake’s Deception in the book means that the player needs to go the Rapier Cay. The chapter will have images of a warrior and the snake. Thus from the direction of the corresponding constellation, the player can find the islands with ease.

After going to Rapier Cay, the player needs to find the smallest islands in the group of the island. It will be the eastern west island of Rapier Cay. After reaching there, towards the southeast corner of the map, dig and collect the jewel.

8. The Man Who Lost His Gem

The chapter is named The Man Who Lost His Gem, in the book. It means he needs to go to the Mermaid’s Hideaway. There will be hints regarding glimmer. And from the constellation, it has been obvious that the player needs to look for the constellation of the fish and then go to that respective island, which is Mermaid’s Hideaway.

After reaching the island, shoot from the cannon in the middle of the island and then diver underwater. The player will find a tight pathway. Swim through it and before the ending of the pathway, take a left turn, and there the player will find the Star Jewel on the top of the mountain under the water. Collect and move further in the mission.

9. Battle in the Havens

The chapter named battle in the heavens in the book means that the player needs to go to the Mutineer Rock.  In the book, there will be a bit of description regarding sharks, thus go in the respective direction or go to the Mutineer Rock to find the jewel.

From the book, the player will also get the hint that he needs to dig between the four large rocks. In the Mutineer Rock, there are four rocks on the edge of the islands. This means that the player needs to dig between these rocks. Dig there and collect the Star Jewel to make progress in the mission.

Find and collect the Totem

After getting two Star Jewels from any of the two islands mentioned above, now the player needs to get the totem. To find its location, read the story named An Elusive Story, from the book. It will guide the player to the location of the totem.

It will be the same location where the player finds the Magpie’s ship in the first tall tale story named the Shroudbreaker. It will be the N13 location according to the coordination of the map. So dive in the water and near the shipwreck of the magpie, there will be a tunnel. Go inside the tunnel. After crossing the tunnel, the player will find a tomb on the surface of the water.

The tomb will be like a hidden case. There will be a statue and the player needs to place both the Star Jewels in the place of the eye of the statute. The easiest way to bring both Star Jewels under the water at once is by placing them in the chest and bringing the chest under the water.

After placing the jewels, the mouth of the statue will open and the player will find the item there. Now every player will not find the same totem. The different totems will also lead the player to the different islands. So the further progress in the mission will depend on the type of totem that the player will get.

There has been a list of totems, and the player will get any one of them. The totem and their respective locations are mentioned below:

  1. Crab totem – Uncharted Vault Island (N13)
  2. Shark Totem – Kraken’s Fall
  3. Scarab Totem – Crook’s Hollow
  4. Boar Totem – Devil’s Ridge
  5. Moon totem – Crescent Isle
  6. Snake Totem – Mermaid’s Hideaway

 

1. Crabs Totem

If the player gets lucky and finds the Crabs Totem, he doesn’t need to go anywhere. Just turn around and place the totem near the signs of the crabs on the wall. Place the totem and the vault will open.

Shark Totem

If the player finds the Shark Totem, he needs to go to the Kraken’s Fall.  Go to the location where the water enters the Kraken’s Fall. Near this, the player finds the shark drawing on the wall. On the right side of the wall, a bit towards backward, there will be a location where the player can place the totem to gain access to the vault.

Scarab Totem

The next possibility is that the player will find the Scarab Totem, if this happens, he needs to go to Crooks Hollow. The location of this vault is similar to that of the Shroud Breakers, and that is behind the waterfall. Place the totem near the drawing of the scarab, and the vault will open.

Boar Totem

If the player gets a Boar Totem, he needs to go to the Devil’s Ridge. Go to the southeast beach of the Devil’s Ridge and the player will find the drawing of the boar in the wall. On the left of these drawings, the player needs to place the totem to open the vault.

Moon Totem

Moon Totem means that the player needs to go to the Crescent Isle. As the player will enter the cave of the Crescent Isle, take right, and there the player will see the moon symbols on the wall. In front of these symbols, he needs to place the totem to open the vault.

Snake Totem

Snake Totem will lead the player to the Mermaid’s Hideaway. Go to the North West side of the island and there the player will see a gap between two large rocks. In between these rocks, he will find the drawing of the snakes on the wall. On the opposite side of the drawing, there will be some rocks and that’s the place where the player needs to place a totem to unlock the vault.

Solving the riddle in the vault

After collecting the totem from the statue, the player will find two pages near the statue. Don’t forget to pick them up as well. This is so because these pages will lead the player further in the mission.

Whichever totem the player will find, he will end up in the same situation inside the vault. This vault is the same as that in the Shroudbreaker mission. The player needs to solve the riddle similarly and prevent the vault from flooding. As the player lights up the flame of the table, the water starts rushing into the vault.

Now the player needs to solve the riddle from the pages which he collected from near the statue of the totem. As he opens the pages, there will be two paragraphs. The first line of each paragraph is the most important. Moreover, every line of the paragraph has hints or words which correlate to any of the constellations.

Therefore, the player needs to read the paragraph and see the pictures of the constellations from the initials pages of the books, side by side. Thus after linking the words of the paragraph with the respective constellation, the player needs to arrange the rocks according to the sequence of the constellations.

The constellations, which are discussed first in the paragraph will come first, and then later one will come after that, and in this way, the sequence goes on. Rotate all rocks according to the sequence or pattern from the paragraph.

As there have been two paragraphs, therefore after setting the stones according to the first paragraph, the player needs to click the button on the table to enter the sequence of the second paragraph. It means that it is the two combinations code. In Shroud Breaker, it was the three combination code.

After solving the riddle, the water will stop flowing in and the small vault will be on the other side of the table. Go to that vault and the player will find Shroudbreaker stone there.

Bring Shroud Breaker stone back to Sudds

After collecting the Shroudbreaker stone, the player needs to come back to the Sudds, from where the mission starts. Go back to him and him over the stone to complete the mission. He will appreciate your effort and thus the mission will complete.

Conclusion

In a nutshell, the player needs to get the book from Sudds and then according to the chapter of the book, go to the respective island. In the first chapter, the player will get two of the 1 islands. Go to the respective island to get the spyglass. In the second chapter in the second half, the player will get two chapters out of nine randomly, from where he can find Star Jewel. Thus after collecting both star jewels, he needs to place them in the statue near Briggsy’s ship. The statue will give the totem. The type of totem player will decide the location of the vault where the player needs to go to place the totem and to get the Shroudbreaker stone. The player will get any one of the six totems and thus he needs to go to the respective island or location to collect the Shroudbreaker stone. Solve the riddle of the vault to get the Shroudbreaker stone and bring it back to Sudds to complete the mission.

Some key things to remember

This has been a pretty diverse mission and the player can get a lot of options to select in this mission. Therefore the player might get confused about how and which option to choose. While doing the mission, the player should keep the following things in mind to make progress in the game:
