How to Find Chest of Sorrow in Sea of Thieves?

Finding the Chest of Sorrow in Sea of Thieves is not a cake walk. Unfortunately, since the loot spawns randomly, there’s no exact location that you can go to and find it. You’ll have to explore the game and complete treasure quests. The Chest of Sorrow can appear while exploring caves and shipwrecks, or you might run across it in one of your quests for gold. Of course, you might also be able to find it while robbing other players.

How to Stop Chest of Sorrow From Flooding in Sea of Thieves?

There doesn’t seem to be any surefire way from stopping the Chest of Sorrow from crying. Some players have reported that playing a sad song on your hurdy-gurdy or concertina will stop it from crying at least for a short while. Eventually, it will stop working, so you have to switch with another crew member. This could just be a coincidence, and that the chest is just following a pre-programmed tempo of crying.

That being said, there is a way from preventing the Chest of Sorrow from sinking your ship. The obvious solution is to have one crew member on pail duty, but there are other ways. At least, for now. One method is for a crew member to grab the chest and hang of the ladder. That way, all the tears will end up in the ocean. Sure, it’s a risk, but it can pay off. Just be careful not to drop the Chest of Sorrow into the water, as it will try to escape. Other methods involve leaving the chest on the plank or in the crow’s nest. But, even then, it seems that you can’t really avoid leaving one crew member to babysit the chest. Good luck if you find it while sailing solo.
