Three painted tentacles – riddle #1
One of the first riddles I got from The Gold Hoarders Trading Company in Sea of Thieves took me to this island. The riddle was pretty obvious, and I almost solved it on my ship why I was approaching the island. I saw painted tentacles on a huge rock, and when stepped on the island, my goal was to find three painted tentacles – The chest is close at the three painted tentacles, but you are not done, dig 6 paces West – by North West grab it and run. There are three huge rocks, the painted tentacles are on the smallest one. Once you dig the chest out, four skeletons will attack you, thus be prepared.

Once you reach the island, the next rhyme will ask you to look for a Skull Shrine – To the skull shrine where there is no sky, now raise your lantern, raise it high. At first I thought that the shrine will be inside a huge mountain that looks like a skull, but you have to look for a small cave not far from the cost. Inside, you’ll see numerous skulls. Select your lantern, and press right mouse button (LT on the XboX console) to raise it high.
North West grave of the Kraken’s prey – riddle #3
The last step tells you to find a grave – From the North West grave of the Karken’s prey ye are getting near, 7 paces South-by-South East and shovel here.
