Cursed Mermaid Statues

Main Article: Cursed Mermaid Statues

The Sunken Curse introduced Cursed Mermaid Statues to the game, which are stone figures found either on or under Island shores. These statues emit a distinct loud ominous hum in the surrounding area, getting louder the closer you get to the statue. The statues glow in three types: Sapphire (blue), Emerald (green) and Ruby (red). If a pirate gets close to these statues, they will take continuous damage from their curse. Once the statues are destroyed, they drop a Mermaid Gem worth 1000, 1500 and 2000 gold respectively.

They can be destroyed with basic weapons, but are easier to destroy with Cannonballs and Gunpowder Barrels. A statue's health regenerates when damaged. How quickly their health regenerates depends on the type of statue - A Sapphire statue heals slowly which makes it vulnerable to a single pirate, whereas a Ruby statue heals the quickest and requires a team of pirates or many Gunpowder Barrels at once to destroy.
