The location of the Reaper's Bounty is indicated by a Golden Skull Icon on the Map Table.

The Reaper's Bounty is cursed with the Reaper's Mark, causing its location to be tracked on a Map Table indicated by a gold & white Reaper's Mark map marker. If the Reaper's Bounty spawns on a shipwreck or is dug up, it will emit a swirling beacon of golden light. This beacon will persist even after it is picked up and will follow it wherever it goes. The high value and visibility of the Reaper's Bounty make players transporting them easy targets.
