Alt Account Voyage Speedrun Guide
This guide is for people who want to complete the Gold Hoarder and Order of Souls commendations Golden Voyager and Voyager of Lost Souls. As a level 50+ player your voyages will be on large islands far from the outpost with multiple islands and chapters to complete. If you still remember your old swabbie days you might recall your first few Gold Hoarder missions being on nearby islands with only having one island with one dig. If that sounds easier to do than your level 50+ voyages then you might guess where this guide is going.
Acquiring the alt account
If you already own two copies of Sea of Thieves you can skip this section. Best option for getting an alt (atleast to my knowledge) would be the 1€/$/£ gamepass ultimate one month special offer. This is not only the cheapest way to get a temporary second copy but it’ll allow you access to Xbox Cloud Gaming which will play a big role if you don’t have two computers to run the copies of the game.
Setting up the grind and basics of using an alt
Main thing you have to decide is what machine you will be using for your alt. If you have two computers powerful enough to run Sea of Thieves then you can just do that (this is also better in my experience). If you only have one computer I’d highly suggest using the new Xbox Cloud Gaming. This will allow you to run Sea of Thieves on your browser or even your phone/tablet. To run it on pc you will need an Xbox controller or you’ll have to emulate something into one.
In my experience doing this efficiently means doing it on a brig or a sloop. As you need to have your alt on the server for most of the grind and one person actually completing the voyages on islands it makes using a galleon very inefficient. You will also notice that when doing Gold Hoarder voyages for the first time on your alt you’ll have to fully complete a tutorial voyage to get access to the main sailor voyages. You also can not buy any promotions for Gold Hoarders or Order of Souls as this will make your voyages more difficult.
How to grind
Now that you’re all set up on your ship of choice with your brand new little sailor account we can finally get into the meat of this guide. Just get on your alt and buy an inventory full of those free sailor voyages and start doing them. On a sloop you will have to helm the ship and shoot out to islands to complete the voyages. On a brig (which I prefer) you can have one helming the ship and voting on voyages while the other shoots out to complete voyages. You should always keep your alt near the voyage table and your ship moving as you might end up next to your next voyages island and gain voyage miles.
To refill your voyages on the road you can just hop your alt onto another server and avoid sailing to an outpost on your main. If you’re using cloud gaming the load times should be very good as Xbox uses some supercomputer to run your game and just sends you a stream of it.
