All Glitterbeard journal locations in Sea of Thieves

May his memory live on forever.

The Sea of Thieves development team at Rare lost one of their team members during the tragic year of 2020, James White. He was an apprentice data analyst for Rare, and had done quite a bit of work behind the scenes assisting the team in balancing the new content before it hit the live servers. To commemorate his impact on Sea of Thieves, the development team came together to memorialise him by placing small journals you can find scattered throughout the game. There are 22 journal locations in Sea of Thieves, and collecting them all rewards players with a commendation.

These are all of the Glitterbeard locations you can find in Sea of Thieves.

A New Flag to Fly

The final journal is located on Plunder Valley, the same island as the Our New Home journal. To access this journal, you will need eight players with you to unlock its entrance. You need to locate a tree with various bottles hanging from it. It is on the northwest part of the island, close to the top.

You and the eight players need to take positions around the tree, standing on top of the dirt patches, and you will need to play a musical instrument. Who plays what instrument does matter, so you need to make sure you are in specific locations using the correct instruments.

  • South – Hurdy-Gurdy
  • Southwest – Drum
  • West – Banjo
  • Northwest – Concertina

  • Southeast – Concertina

You have to play these instruments during 10 PM to 11 PM in Sea of Thieves.
