Jaryd ‘Sea of Thieves and he’s proven that once again by raiding the Athena Fort in around ten minutes. 

Rare have added a number of different quests to their multiplayer pirate game since the arrival of the Anniversary update back in April, with raids being made available to players. Those who are successful, of course, get the chance to take home with them a number of the world’s most elusive items. 

During a live broadcast on his Twitch channel, summit and his teammates steered their Galleon towards the Fort of the Damned, which is protected by a number of resident skeletons and a raid boss.

RareThere’s a lot up for grabs in the Fort of the Damned challenge.

In this case, that skeleton boss was called the Ghost of Graymarrow and boy could he take some shots to the body! Absorbing shotgun bullet after shotgun bullet, the Ghost laughed back at the team as they tried to take him down. 

With so many skeletons in the area, it wouldn’t be a shock to see summit or his teammates taken down by a flood of melee attacks. 

A quick trick that he decided to show viewers, though, involved him taking cannon balls from the island, back to the ship, and then firing at the boss from there – which worked a treat.

After taking down the characters protecting the island, their treasures were exposed and summit looted it all up – collecting a number of Stronghold chests and skulls. These items can sell for between 1,500-4,000 pieces of gold in the game. 

The most important find, though, was an Athena chest. They can easily offload this for between 3,000 to 9,000 coins. He said: “How fast did we crack that? Like ten minutes?” 

Once the mission was complete and the doors opened, revealing a number of different goodies for the team to collect, it was clear that this would be a big payday for the crew.

How to play Sea of Thieves’ Fort of the Damned mission

When this challenge was first added to the game in October, Sea of Thieves’ development team added a brief video to their official YouTube channel – showing how to start the mission, what’s up for grabs and much more. 

If you would like to find out the finer details of this mission, check out the video below. 

A tip for players wanting to take on this Fort of the Damned challenge is to try to take a spare Ritual Skull with you to the location. 

Once you have completed the mission, simply use the skull to do it all over again. Double the loot, double your money!


Summit1g defends actions on Sea of Thieves after being labeled “toxic”

Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘Summit1G’ Lazar has hit back at a report and claims that he was toxic on Sea of Thieves after breaking up servers where players wouldn’t interact in PvP. 

For the most part, playing Sea of Thieves can be a fun and enjoyable experience. You hop aboard a ship with a friend or two and sail the seas in hopes of completing quests picking up loot that you can sell on.

However, there are plenty of players who try to ruin that – typically through bombarding your ships with constant attacks. As a streamer, Summit has dealt with his fair share of this too, but he’s been able to fight back. 

Previously, he’s put people on blast on Twitter for not playing the game the right way, and while he hasn’t played Sea of Thieves for a while, he’s come under fire for his previous behavior. 

Microsoft StudiosSome players have big issues with the Sea of Thieves community.

Summit’s supposed “toxic” behavior was highlighted in a recent article after streamers quit the game due to harassment from other players. As he started up his October 4 stream, the leader of the 1G squad fired back – tearing into how some players aim to keep servers to themselves in a bid to farm coins. 

“Motherf**ker, you don’t talk about how they get those servers going in the first place – on Discord, through harassment themselves. They will stomp a ship out until they leave the game and get on their ship, you feel me? They don’t talk about all that stuff though,” he said, addressing the article. 

He turned his attention to the players who try to ruin these servers, adding: “Then, they sit on their servers where it’s supposed to be a give and take experience, pirates that take, and pirates that find, and it’s a big circle of we need each other but they sit in their circlejerk farms avoiding all aspects of fear.”

Summit added that playing like that is “not how the game should be played” so after those players took things to Discord in a bit to communicate and organize, he and his pals used “streamer benefits” to find out about them, as well ultimately infiltrating the servers.

He added that he’d never verbally abuse anyone in a racist or sexist way, but just trash-talked if someone else started on him.“We’d only talk s**t if they talk s**t, we’d only give it if they gave it,” Summit continued.  

“And if they’re giving it, they’d take it. They’re fine, they’re big boys, but what we’re talking about here is ridiculous. So, I just don’t understand why it’s a bad thing for one side to do it but not a bad thing for another side to do it.”

Plenty of his fans and Sea of Thieves players backed Summit’s cause to frustrate the players who keep servers to themselves in a bid to coin farm.

The game has undergone plenty of changes in recent months, but it’s unknown if he’ll return to it on a full-time basis as he once did.
