Sea of Thieves: Merchant Alliance Guide

The Merchants' Alliance is one of the three trading companies in Sea of Thieves with which you can travel and complete missions.

This trading company focuses on delivering cargo to customers. Since these are commercial agreements, the Merchants Alliance is very careful about deadlines, therefore, the player's primary goal is to bring the cargo to the customer as soon as possible in order to get the agreed payment. The faster you can reach your goal, the better.

Choosing to work for this trading company means taking a predominantly non-confrontational approach, preferring instead to exchange goods with traders. However, in order to carry out the various tasks you can adopt the style best suited to the situation.

Once you have found the cargo that needs to be delivered (which may often include live animals), you will need to go at full speed to the client and make sure that your goods are not stolen during transport at sea.

Compared to the missions of the order of souls, where it is required to make its way through hordes of unfriendly skeletons, those of the Alliance will often take you in search of livestock to take on board the ship to be sold to those in need.

The missions of the Merchants' Alliance in Sea of Thieves focus on trade. You will often have to recover cargo (including animals) and deliver it on time.

Promotions in the Merchants' Alliance

If you decide to work for the Merchants' Alliance, you can advance in the ranks of the company reaching increasingly prestigious promotions. These are available when the player has reached a minimum reputation with the Alliance, so just level up, each level corresponds to a promotion, and they can be purchased for a certain amount of gold. Each promotion unlocks more items, including the best missions of the Alliance, which require the delivery of more goods in less time.
