Sunken Merfolk Statue

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Sunken Merfolk Statues are interactive statues found in Siren Treasuries and Siren Shrines that allow players to transport back to their ship, and can also be used to store treasure providing a quick transportation up to the water's surface.


A Sunken Merfolk Statue provides storage of up to 20 treasure (including the Trident of Dark Tides). Once a treasure is stored, only the crew who stored the treasure can collect it.

Collecting the treasure stored in a Sunken Merfolk Statue can be done from the statue itself, or from a Merfolk found swimming at the water's surface. The Merfolk will be distinguishable by the distinct purple plume of smoke emitting from their staff, and will be wearing a large orange shell on its back.

Treasure stored inside of a Sunken Merfolk Statue is specific to the Siren Shrine or Siren Treasury it was inside, e.g. If you store treasure inside of a Sunken Merfolk Statue in the Shrine of the Coral Tomb and you head to the Shrine of Tribute, the treasure stored inside the Sunken Merfolk Statue from the Shrine of the Coral Tomb will not be in any of the Sunken Merfolk Statues in the Shrine of Tribute.
