Letters of Recommendation

From Sea of Thieves Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Letters of Recommendation are a purchasable Bilge Rat service that will increase the player's Reputation Level by +1 within a specified Trading Company. Purchases are limited to one Letter for each Trading Company per major monthly update. Every Letter of Recommendation costs 30 Doubloons. These Letters cannot be bought if the selected Company's Reputation has already reached its max level.

Types of Letters

Currently there is a Letter of Recommendation for each Trading Company except for the Reaper's Bones.


  • Before the 2.0.7 Update, players were not restricted on Letter purchases, meaning that they could buy themselves from 1 to 50 given that they had the Doubloons. Since Doubloons were more difficult to come by this was not an issue, however with the introduction of Reaper’s Chests and other Bilge Rat Treasures, the limitation of one per month for each Company was set.
  • Due to their rivalry with the other Trading Companies, the Reaper's Bones do not accept recommendation letters from the Bilge Rats.
