Grogmanay event details
To see out the year with a bang, players will need to be intoxicated with Grog (at least three Grogs) to complete a set of challenges whilst under the effects. While the list of Challenge Goals for this event has yet to be determined, players have a small window to complete these challenges otherwise, players will have to drink some more Grog.
Grog can be obtained from the Innkeeper at taverns scattered across the Sea of Thieves or from the Grog barrel aboard your ship. As such, on completion of the event’s set challenges, there is a fire-cracking reward that awaits players as well
Grogmanay event rewards
Once players have completed the Challenge Goals for the Grogmanay event, they will earn exclusive themed cosmetics which will be available via Outpost Shops or when visiting the Pirate Emporium following the event’s conclusion.
Additionally, players will unlock the Firework Stash Voyage which can be obtained from Larinna. This voyage will lead players to a location holding a cache of fireworks, which can be proven useful through the season.
Celebrate the start of the new year with a “whizz-bang” in the Grogmanay event. If you do intend on participating, please remember to not try any of the in-game event activities at home!
