Sea of thieves The Shores of Gold

The Shores of Gold has been the last and final tall tale of the game. It will bring the end of the telltale series. As it has been the last and final mission of the tall tale, it is the longest mission of all the tall tales. It is not that much difficult, but the lengthy nature of the mission may exhaust the player. In this article, the player will find the easiest, quickest, and direct way to do this mission. So stick to each article to find the quickest way to do the mission.

The Shores of Gold

In the final tale named The Shores of Gold, the player needs to find the Gold Hoarder and kill him to retrieve its skull. The player can sell this skull for 10,000. Therefore it will be a pretty expensive skull and the player can use it for his good.

In this quest, the player needs to find 6 items in total. 4 will be a medallion, which will lead the player to the fifth item, which will be the coin. And that coin will lead to the sixth and final item, which can be obtained after killing the Gold Hoarder boss. The last item will be a Gold Hoarder skull. Bring the skull back to any order of souls and sell it for a high price.

Start The Shores of Gold mission

To start The Shores of Gold mission, the player needs to head to Morrow’s Peak Outpost. Go to the top of the island near the Tavern. Outside the tavern, there will be a lady named Grace. On the left side of Grace, on her cart, there will be a book named The Shores of Gold. Vote for that book to start the mission,

As the player votes for the book, like other tall tales, Grace or the narrator will start talking and tell a brief about the whole mission. Listen to her to get a brief outlook of the mission so that the player can do it with ease. After listening to her, the [player can make a rough map of the mission and thus can do it with ease.

Shroud Breaker on the ship

As the mission starts, the player needs to head to The Shores of Gold Island, in the Red Sea. As the player moves back to the ship after starting the tall tale from Grace, he will notice Shroudbreaker in front of the wheel/steering of the ship. The Shroudbreaker will help the player in passing through the Red Sea.

The Red Sea is a dead sea that can give a lot of damage to the ship as well as the player, therefore the Shroudbreaker will keep the ship and the player safe from the deadly outcomes of the Red Sea.

As the player moves in the Red Sea, the Shroudbreaker will start glowing red. It means that it has started protecting the ship. He3nce the Shroudbreaker, which automatically gets equipped on the ship, will help the player while going through the Red Sea.

Now the player needs to head to The Shores of Gold Island. The location of the islands will be Y3. So head there. As the player reaches there, it will be on the south side of the island. So the ship will be parked on the south side of the island.

The player might need to move the ship further in the mission because this is a pretty large island and the player needs to explore nearly the whole island. So exploring it only on foot will be difficult.

First vault

Now in the mission, the player first needs to get all four medallions. These medallions can be found in the four different vaults. These vaults are pretty hidden so the player will find it difficult to explore them. In this guide, he will get to know the location and tips and tricks regarding each vault.

The very first vault will be the southern vault. This is because the ship is parked on the south side of the island, hence it will be easy to find.

Location of vault

To find the vault. Head towards the giant ridge on the right side of the island. Follow the sandy path and near the ridge, then head down to the base of the ridge near the shore. From there, take the right to enter the cave.

Riddle of the first vault

Now open the book, and read the instructions regarding the southern vault. There will be three different images, with each image having four different symbols. Now as the player enters the cave, there will be a vault-like the previous tall tales, for example from the Shroudbreaker one.

Light all the corners of the table to start solving the riddle. Now the player needs to complete three combinations. First, he needs to find all the symbols mentioned in the first image. These symbols will be in the revolving pillars in the vault.

As there will be only three pillars, so the player only needs to match three out of four images. Just keep rotating the pillar, until it matches one of the symbols in the picture. Then move to the next and do the same and the similar step will be repeated for the third one.

Then press the button on the table and enter the second combination of symbols from the second image similarly. Repeat the step for the third combination. The vault will be filling up with water so the player needs to do it quickly. Hence it will be better if the player learns the symbols and image from the book previous to starting the riddle.

Get the shark medallion from the southern vault

After completing all the three combinations, a small vault will opine behind the table. Go there and pick the first medallion, which will be the shark medallion. Now the player needs to keep this medallion safe. He can place it on the ship or anywhere on the island. If the ship is near, then it is better to place it on the ship.

Second vault

Now the location of the second vault will be near the first one. It will be on the other side of the giant ridge. This vault will be underground. After placing the shark totem on the ship, looking directly in front of the ship, the player will find the opening to the second vault.

Near the base of the ridge, the player will find the ladders going underground. Climb down the ladder to reach the second vault. As every vault has different riddles to solve, this one has its unique one.

Riddle of the vault

Like all vaults, light up the corners of the table, and the vault will be sealed with water flooding the vault. Now this vault will have different types of the riddle to solve. As the player lights up the torches on the corner of the table, there will appear a map on the table.

The player needs to arrange the pillars according to the symbols from the table. As the symbols for every player will be the same, hence the player needs to arrange the player from the left to right as the Kraken first, then the shark, the turtle, and then the flame. It means that the left-most pillar will have the Kraken symbol on it and the rightmost will have the flame symbol on it.

Getting the medallion

After solving the riddle. Just press the button on the table and the small vault will open which will contain a medallion. This will be the boat medallion. Take this medallion also back to the ship or place it somewhere on the island along with other medallions safely.

Third vault

The third vault will be on the eastern side of the map. To go there, the quickest possible way is to fire yourself from the cannon. Aim high in the air towards the eastern side of the island, and fire the cannon. Where the player will fall, there will be a huge mountain-like ridge in front of him. Go straight there and the player will find a small cave at the base of that rock. Go inside the cave and the player will find the third vault.

Riddle of the vault

As the player enters the vault, light up the table, like previous vaults, to start the riddle. Now in this vault, the player needs to arrange the pillars according to the key in the book. The head of the key will be on the rightmost pillar. Then arrange all the pillars according to the shape from the book.

It will not be difficult because right and left most pillars will have circles in it while the middle two have different signs. So follow the book and match according to it.

Get the medallion

After solving the riddle, hit the button on the table to open the secret vault behind the table. Head towards it and get the warrior medallion. Now like the previous medallion, either place it on the ship and hide somewhere safe on the island as per the ease of the player.

Fourth and final vault

The fourth and final vault will be on the northern side of the island. It will be better to use the ship from going there. Take the ship to the northern side of the island and park it near the middle of the two huge rocks. After parking the ship near the rocks, fire yourself from the canon towards the northern rock. Go to the base of the rock and the cave will lead the player to the vault.

Riddle of the vault

As the player lights up the flames around the table, this vault will not start filling up with water. So the player can take as much time as he likes to solve the riddles in this vault. Despite not being flooding, there is a trap though in this vault that can kill the pillar.

There will be spikes on the floor. The spike will rise in the pattern. So learn their pattern and then move accordingly. In this vault, the player needs to match the same image on all of the four pillars. So it will be better if the player looks at all the four vaults and memorizes their respective symbols or images.

After that, place the image or symbol on the pillar which is common in all of the pillars. Then press the button on the table for the second combination. Repeat the step to unlock the small vault.

Get the Medallion

Now as the small vault will open, it will give the last and final Kraken medallion to the player. Now the player can also take this back to ship or place with others. On the other hand, he can directly take this medallion where all the medallions should be placed.

Find the Gold Hoarder Coin

This is the fifth item that the player will get in this mission. To get this, the player needs to place all four medallions in the statue, inside a secret cave. The location of the cave will be mentioned below.

Location of the secret cave

Now the player needs to move his ship for the last time. Take the ship to the far north side of the island. Park the ship near the place where the main island gets separated from the little outgrowth island. From there, the player needs to keep on the left side of the island.

Exit the boat, and towards the left side, and keep going straight. The player needs to keep his direction towards the left side. He will come through a small cave covered by two rocks. Pass it, then the player will pass through the small green overhanging, made up of leaves. Pass under it and keep the pace towards the left.

After taking a few turns, the player will pass the final landmark and it will be the wooden bridge. After crossing the bridge, it will be clear that the player is going in the right direction. After that, keep going straight, and after going a bit further, there will be a cave that will lead the player to a vault-like place.

There will be a statue or a stony structure where the player needs to place all four medallions. Hence, the player needs to travel all across the island and pick the medallions from the location where he places them, on the boat or somewhere on the island.

If he placed them on the vault and gets similar to the location of the vault, he can fire himself with a cannon in the respective direction to travel quickly. Anyhow, place all the medallions in the Stoney statue.

Get the Gold Hoarder Coin

After placing all medallions in the structure, the ground will shake and a small vault will open on the left side of the Stoney structure. This vault will have the coin which the player is looking for. Take it and move to the next destination.

Place the Gold Hoarder Coin on its place

Now after getting the coin, the player needs to place it in the correct place to make progress in the mission. To find that specific location, the player needs to head to the northern side of the island, near the place where he finds his last medallion.

There he will see four large statues. Go to the statue which does not have a head. Below it, there will be a small gateway. But there will be no lever to open the gate. Place the medallion temporarily near the gate.

Now head back to the ship, and fire yourself on the lap of that statue. On the lap, the player will find downwards stairs and pathways. Go down, and he will find a lever to open the gate. Open the gate and pick up the coin back.

After that, there will be a small pathway going downwards. Go down and there the player will find a proper platform where he needs to place the coin. As the player will place the coin there, the ground will shake and the new pathway will open on the left side.

Belly of gold

Now the player needs to head to the pathway which just opens. Now this pathway will have a lot of traps like from the previous tall tales. Just memorize the pattern of movement spike or any other trap, and move accordingly. After following the timing, the player can pass through this with ease.

After passing through all the traps precautionary, the player will reach a giant room with a lot of gold traces. Here the player will fight the final boss, the Gold Hoarder.

Fight the Gold Hoarder

While fighting the Gold Hoarder, if the player dies, he will respawn on the checkpoint near the boss. So he will not have to travel a lot again. But still, fight the boss with precaution.

Like other skeleton bosses, this one will also have three different attacks. The player can predict every one of them and then attack accordingly. If the player gets a lot of damage while fighting the boss, don’t worry because he will find a lot of food items in the barrels around this huge cave.  Just consume the food and restore your health,

Get the gold hoarder skull

After defeating the Gold Hoarder, he will drop his skull. Pick it up and as the player picks it up, the greenlights will start emitting from the skull and also around the table in the middle of the cave. As the player goes there, the Pirate’s Lord will appear and appreciate the player for his efforts.

Take skull to order of souls

After the Pirate’s Lord stops talking and vanishes, the player will still have the skull. Now he can do whatever he wants to do with it. He can sell it to any order of souls all around the map for 10,000. So, selling it or keeping it, is up to the player. Anyhow, this will bring the end of the last mission of the tall tale and hence the end of the telltale series.
