Turns out being a pirate isn’t all about drinking booze and singing songs while enjoying a bonfire’s warmth. In Skull and Bones, managing your Cargo, Warehouse, & Cache inventory is the key to success. 

It’s easy to hoard goodies until your ship’s cargo is overflowing with useless stuff. Whether you’re plundering riches or engaging in fierce naval battles, having the right goods on board can mean the difference between victory and Davy Jones’ locker. In this guide, I’ll give you the best inventory management tips in Skull and Bones.

How to Store Items in the Warehouse in Skull and Bones

The Warehouse in Skull and Bones is your safe storage spot that’s much bigger than your Ship’s Cargo. You can store any kind of item in it. To move your stuff from the Ship’s Cargo to the warehouse, all you need to do is dock at the outpost and hit the Embark key to open the Ship’s Menu.

Head over to the “Manage Cargo” section and click on it to view all the items currently stored in your Ship’s Cargo on the left-hand side, while the Warehouse is displayed on the right side. All you have to do is select the items you wish to transfer and move them to the Warehouse to keep them safe and secure.

Don’t fret if your warehouse storage is currently on the small side – as you climb the ranks and increase your Infamy Level, your storage capacity will grow with it. In fact, the warehouse is far more capacious than the Ship’s Cargo, and it expands each time you level up.

It’s crucial to manage your cargo after each voyage. By sinking enemy ships, you can gain access to various resources and valuables that are essential for crafting items, tools, weapons, furniture, and more. Store your resources in the warehouse for safekeeping. As for your valuables, including commodities and consumables such as food and repair kits, keep them on your cargo. This way, you can sell them to merchants during your journey and use consumables as needed.

In Skull and Bones, it is crucial to leave unnecessary baggage behind. The items you don’t need to carry all the time can go to your warehouse. The only things you should keep in your cargo are cooked grub, repair kits, and cannonballs for your voyages.

Do not forget that Warehouse and Cache inventories are shared. If you run into a Cache on a random island, store goods you want sent to your warehouse to keep them safe.

Stockpile building and crafting materials like planks and metal in your warehouse since you’ll only use them for crafting at outposts.
