Siren Shrines are Locations in the Sunken Kingdom which players can explore and solve puzzles within in search of treasure. There are six shrines currently in the game, with two present within the Shores of Plenty, The Ancient Isles, and The Wilds respectively. Siren Shrines, along with the related Siren Treasuries, are the only places Coral Treasure and Breath of the Sea may be found.
Players may receive a Quest to visit Siren Shrines from a Coral Message in a Bottle, which will contain a Breath of the Sea amongst their treasure when visited with a Quest.
List of Shrines
There are six different Siren Shrines to discover:
Each Siren Shrine utilizes a unique puzzle or gimmick, usually involving platforming or light combat with Ocean Crawlers or Coral Skeletons. Additionally, some re-use mechanics introduced in the A Pirate's Life Tall Tales.
Unlike regular Islands, Siren Shrines exist only on the seafloor and as such are not marked on the map table by an overhead view. Instead, each Shrine is marked only by its name and a simple illustration of a coral structure. When approaching an active Shrine, a spiraling purple glow should be visible on the water over a shrine to indicate where players should swim to reach the Shrine. This glow disappears shortly after a Shrine is cleared, and will turn back on when it resets.
While in the water around a Shrine, players will drown significantly slower, allowing them to explore freely while not having to worry as much about breathing. Columns of coral releasing air bubbles can be found around shrines, allowing players to refill their air without swimming to the surface.
Sunken Merfolk Statues
Shrines feature Sunken Merfolk Statues scattered throughout which players may use to store Treasure and return to the surface. Treasure stored within a Sunken Merfolk Statue can be retrieved from a special Merfolk found on the surface of the water.
Shrines can be extremely rewarding ventures, especially for newer players as the Coral Treasure found within sells for significantly more gold and reputation than its regular counterparts.
Scattered throughout and around the Shrine, players may find:
And if players entered the Shrine with a Coral Message in a Bottle Quest:
- Breath of the Sea (1 for each Quest the player has for that particular Shrine)
Additionally, the Shrine of Ancient Tears, Shrine of Ocean's Fortune, and Shrine of Tribute may spawn a Chest of Ancient Tributes at the end of their respective puzzles.
Each Siren Shrine features a commendation for its discovery, as well as a commendation for visiting each Siren Shrine.
