Approaching the Red Sea will turn the water blood red and the moon red. The blood red water and moon indicates that something is about to happen…
The Blood Moon indicates that damage to your ship is taken and cracks will begin to form, this only happens when you travel far away from the map. Apart from appearing in the Red Sea it can also be found during lunar eclipse, lunar eclipse is for scenery.
Red Moon and Red Sea – What it Does
The Red Sea or Poison Sea is an indication that your ship and it’s crew are reaching the world border. Similar to the Kraken making the water around it black, approaching the red sea will make a water blood red and the moon red. No damage will be done to your ship upon approaching it.
As you continue your voyage off the map, holes in your ship will start to appear, requiring you to often repair your ship. As you venture further, eventually you and all crew will be teleported off the ship and it will start to sink. Once this process has begun, you can no longer fix the ship and it will be lost forever.
Can Your Boat Survive in the Red Sea?
The upper right corner of the map is the only place where you can survive the Red Sea, to be able to survive you will need Shores of Gold Tall Tale at Morrow’s Peak, the Shroudbreaker is added to the helm of your ship which is what you need to traverse the red sea. You can travel freely but if you venture outside the border of the map entirely you’ll be transferred to a new starting location
Can you swim in the Red Sea Sea of Thieves?
You will slowly sink deep into the Red Sea without being able to get up, you can always swim down but not up for some reason! But why do people want to visit the red sea?
Why Pirates Sail Into The Red Sea
During PvP sessions, it is common practice to sail toward the border or the Red Sea when being chased or surrounded. The question of whether sinking your loot in the Red Sea is valid or cowardice when you are on the brink of losing in Sea of Thieves is constantly debated.
There will be peaceful pirates as well as bullies in the channels. As much as the adventures and stories of pirate life, the constant thrill of chase and fight experiences is also a part of the experience. Some players prefer to experience PvE first before diving into PvP. As the ships approach, it is always a tense moment since fights can occur at any time. Navigators who avoid such conflicts and maneuver themselves and their crew to safety speak volumes.
