Can’t Open Barrier in Sunken Pearl Sea of Thieves Pirate’s Life Tall Tale – How to Solve Bug

If you can’t open the different barriers in the Sunken Pearl Pirate’s Life Tall Tale in Sea of Thieves, to solve the bug, you need to hop onto a different server. You’ll know that you’ve encountered the glitch if the glowing coral that’s supposed to open the door isn’t flashing. Now, before you do anything drastic, make sure that you’ve solved the puzzle correctly if you’re in a puzzle room. Check whether all three smaller siren statues have their tridents in the correct positions, and shoot the main statue.

If that doesn’t work, or the coral is not glowing as it should be and you’re not in a puzzle room, then you’ve encountered the dreaded glitch that only hopping onto another server can fix. Don’t worry, you won’t have to start the quest completely over. You’ll be allowed to continue from one of the statues that let you return to your ship. They basically work as checkpoints that don’t reset if you jump onto a different server. You might lose a chunk of progress, but not all of it. That said, keep in mind that you might have to hop several servers before all is said and done.

How to Fix Kraken Boss Fight & Puzzles Not Spawning in Sea of Thieves Sunken Pearl Tall Tale

To fix the bug where the Kraken boss fight (or any other fight) won’t spawn, or puzzles won’t spawn in the Sea of Thieves Sunken Pearl Tall Tale, you’re gonna have to go to a different server. This glitch seems to have the same origin as the one above, as do many others. It seems that the lock system the developers placed causes the quest to freak out if you try completing it after another team has already solved it. I doubt they meant to do that, but it’s a nightmare nonetheless. Again, you will be able to start from the last checkpoint you’ve visited, so not all is lost. Take the L, go to a different server, and hope that another crew hasn’t already been there. Rinse and repeat until you get to the end.
