The Community Spirit Challenges is a global community event where pirates band together to eliminate the undead across the Sea of Thieves for a bonus reward. The Fury of the Damned event runs from 7th October until 4th November 2021.
Fury of the Damned: Repeatable and Community Spirit Challenges
Repeatable Challenges are split up into three stages with a combined amount of 14 challenges to complete. Each bearing its unique set of objectives, pirates can choose whichever set of challenges to participate in to earn Favour.
The best part is that these challenges can be replayed as many times to collect Favour. The three stages of Repeatable Challenges are as follows:
- Flames of the Damned: centred around the Flames of Fate
- Ships of the Damned: centred on eliminating sea-based enemies
- Armies of the Damned: centred on eliminating land-based enemies
With the Repeatable Challenges, there will be two global community challenges, known as Community Spirit Challenges, for pirates to participate in. Pirates can work together to eliminate a targeted amount of skeletons which will unlock event-themed cosmetics.
If pirates have met the challenge requirement, eliminating 50,000,000 skeletons, all participants will be rewarded with the Wicked Web Figurehead. Furthermore, if they exceed the target by eliminating 150,000,000 skeletons, the Wicked Web Collector’s Figurehead will be rewarded to all participants.
To enter the challenge and be eligible for the rewards, pirates will at least eliminate 10 skeletons during the Community Spirit Challenges.
Fury of the Damned: Earning Bonus Favour
Pirates can earn bonus Favour whilst in an alliance. Instead of earning 10 Favour for sinking a ship, pirates will earn 20 Favour when in an alliance.
As pirates will be able to pick whichever challenge to complete throughout the event, there will be an additional opportunity for more Favour to be earned. This is dependant on which challenges you’re participating in as each set of challenges will come with a bonus objective, earning double Favour. Complete any challenge in the set for double the Favour.
For the Flames of the Damned challenge, for every Shadow of Fate eliminated, pirates, will earn twice as much Favour. The same will apply when completing the Ships of the Damned and Armies of the Damned challenges.
In the fourth and final week of the event, all three challenges will be available to complete, as you can pick any of these challenges for double Favour.
Fury of the Damned: Event Rewards
Pirates who have earned a substantial amount of Favour by completing the Repeatable Challenges will unlock the following cosmetics:
- 500 Favour unlocks the Wicked Web Tankard
- 1000 Favour unlocks the Wicked Web Blunderbuss
- 2000 Favour unlocks the Wicked Web Cannons
For completing the Community Spirit Rewards, as mentioned previously, pirates will be rewarded with the Wicked Web Figurehead and the Wicked Web Collector’s Figurehead.
