How to Unlock New Ships in Skull and Bones

So, if you’ve ever watched Pirates of the Caribbean, you know Jack Sparrow made it pretty clear: a pirate ain’t much without their ship. Well, that same rule applies in Skull & Bones, where snagging a new ship is key. Here’s the lowdown on how to do it.

How to Unlock New Ships in Skull & Bones

So, unlocking a new ship in Skull & Bones isn’t just about finding treasure and sailing off into the sunset. Nope, you gotta meet a few requirements first:

First off, you gotta get your hands on the ship’s blueprint. You can buy ’em or earn ’em by taking on contracts, especially during the main story.

Next up, you gotta earn some infamy. Think of it like pirate street cred. Sink some ships, complete contracts, stir up some trouble – you know, the usual pirate stuff.

And last but not least, you’ll need the right materials. The bigger and fancier the ship, the more plundering and scavenging you’ll have to do.

Where to find blueprints in Skull & Bones

Now, where do you find these blueprints, you ask? Well, your best bet, at least in the beginning, is to hit up Sainte-Anne’s Shipwright or check out the merchants on Red Islands. They usually have some blueprints for smaller ships. Once you’ve climbed the ranks enough, you can craft a Bombardier, but that means sailing way northeast to Telok Penjarah, the second Pirate Den in the game. If you’ve got the blueprints, Sainte-Anne’s Shipwright will hook you up with everything else you need.

Here’s a quick rundown of the ships Sainte-Anne’s Shipwright can whip up and the infamy ranks you need to unlock ’em:

  • Frames, Bedar class (Infamy: Rover I)
  • Defender, Hulk class (Infamy: Rover I)
  • Sentinel, Cutter class (Infamy: Rover I)
  • Firebrand, Barge class (Infamy: Buccaneer I)
  • Blaster, Sloop class (Infamy: Buccaneer I)
  • Bombardier, Padewakang class (Infamy: Brigand I)
  • Vanguard, Snow class (Infamy: Corsair I)
  • Hullbreaker, Brigantine class (Infamy: Cutthroat I)
  • Pyromaniac, Sambuk class (Infamy: Cutthroat I)

Each type of ship has its own perks, so it’s all about what suits your pirate style best.

How to farm materials for shipbuilding in Skull & Bones

Now, let’s talk materials. Even the smallest ships in Skull & Bones don’t come cheap. For example, the Sentinel ship needs 6 bronze ingots, 6 iroko planks, and 12 fine jute. Those are all fancy materials that you gotta either steal from other ships, buy from traders, or refine at Sainte-Anne’s Refinery, which is right by the Shipwright.

To get your hands on these materials, keep an eye out for trade routes on your map. Those dotted lines? Yeah, they lead to the good stuff. Sail along those routes, plunder some merchant ships, and stock up until you’ve got everything you need.

So, there you have it – the scoop on how to unlock new ships in Skull & Bones. And hey, with Ubisoft cooking up more plans for this live service game, you can bet there’ll be even bigger, worse ships to terrorize the seas with in the future.

Oh, and by the way, Skull & Bones is up for grabs in open beta on PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, and PS4. Go get your pirate on! Arrr! 🏴‍☠️
