Since the game’s release, Sea of Thieves has been updated with massive amounts of new content, Tall Tales, and treasures. With every major update comes new types of treasure to find and sell, and players are always on the lookout for the rarest shinies that will get them the most coin. In the list below, we have outlined the most expensive treasure chests and loot you can sell.

Note: Because they’re rewards for completing a story rather than loot that you have to find, we have opted to exclude some Tall Tale chests from this list. Everything listed below is the loot that you have to get by defeating enemies, exploring the seas, and doing tasks!

Treasure Chests

Treasure Chests are the primary source of income for most pirates in Sea of Thieves. Most Trading Companies are interested in most Treasure Chests, and with high emissary value, they can be the most lucrative method of obtaining wealth. In this list, you’ll find the name of the treasure, its max value levels based on Emissary Level (EL), and sources where you can obtain them.
