Sometimes on your journey you’ll come across a message in a bottle. One of them contains a riddle involving the Crest of The Blackwyche on Shipwreck Bay.
Crest of The Blackwyche Riddle
On Shipwreck Bay the rumours fare, something lies hidden there
Like most first lines in riddles, this just refers to the initial location. Head to Shipwreck Bay and make landfall to reveal the second line of the riddle.
Seek the crest of The Blackwyche, keep a weather eye, it lies in wait for a light held high
The Blackwyche is the large galleon that lies all broken up on the beach of Shipwreck Bay. Climb your way up towards the bridge and you will see its crest above the door leading to the captain’s quarters. Get out your lantern and hold it up towards it. This is done by using the secondary action button and you’ll know you’re doing it correctly when a green glow and sound effect occur. This reveals the final line of the riddle.
Find beneath the caged remains of the mutinous pirate to the West, this riddle bewitches, 6 paces East, will your shovel strike box of riches?
Head west along the shipwreck, past the bow until you find a long deceased pirate inside of a hanging cage. This is your starting point to walk six paces due east where you can dig up your reward.
