There’s a new system called Emissary in Sea of Thieves. You can become an Emissary to any of the available trading companies in the game. To become an Emissary, you need first to reach level 15 with their trading company, promote yourself three times, and then purchase their flag for 20,000 gold coins. After you’re an Emissary for a trading company, you now have access to increasing your Emissary Grade with them.

Emissary Grade is a way to increase your standing with a trading company at a quicker rate than you normally would. You can see the Emissary Grade meter at the bottom right of your screen. The actions you do in the game need to benefit the company you work for at that time. For example, if you work for the Gold Hoarders, you need to profit them by locating specific treasures chests to place on your ship and complete voyages on their behalf to further increase your Emissary Grade. You lose your Emissary Grade progress if you lower your Emissary flag on your ship or you sink.

Each of the trading companies has different methods available for you to increase your Emissary grade.

  • Grade 1 = 1.25 multiplier (125 percent of normal value)
  • Grade 2 = 1.5 multiplier (150 percent of normal value)
  • Grade 3 = 1.75 multiplier (175 percent of normal value)
