There are a total of six new Siren Shrines in the game, and each shrine has five secret journals to unlock. Players will need to discover each of the Siren Shrines and recover all of the journals in order to unlock The Mysteries of the Sunken Kingdom commendation.

If you haven't discovered all of the Siren Shrines yet, we recommend that you check out our guides for each shrine, linked below, prior to continuing.

Treasuries, unfortunately, do not count toward the commendations progression.

Once you have discovered all of the Siren Shrines, you will have to read all of the journals found within them. It doesn't matter which order you discover the shrines, as all of the journals will be sorted into their proper chronological order.

Once this has been completed, you will unlock The Legend of the Sunken Sorrow; a special voyage that can be purchased from Larina via The Bilge Rats.

The Legend of the Sunken Kingdom voyage will have you complete various riddles, which were written by a mysterious Scholar. Completing this voyage will take a few hours. As you complete each riddle, you will find a locked Forbidden Coral Chest that will require 3 Forbidden Keys to open it, each of which is found by completing more riddles.

Once the chest is opened, you will discover a Mysterious Ancient Key, which you will use to open up the Forbidden Ancient Chamber. Once you have reached the Forbidden Ancient Chamber, you will unlock the coveted Coral Curse after reading the secret found within the tomb. The Coral Curse will then become available to use in the Vanity Chest.
