Skull and Bones Sovereigns: How to farm S&B’s endgame currency quickly

Everything you need to know about Skull and Bones' elusive endgame currency

Skull and Bones’ economy features quite a few in-game currencies, and while you are already familiar with Silver and Pieces of Eight, a third currency, Sovereigns, which unlocks later in the game, could be somewhat puzzling.

Here’s everything you need to know about Sovereigns in Skull and Bones, how to earn them, and the best ways to farm them.

What are Sovereigns in Skull and Bones?

Sovereigns are the third currency in Skull and Bones, which you unlock later in the game, after reaching the Kingpin Infamy rank and completing the contract “A Nose for Business.”

How to get Sovereigns in Skull and Bones

Sovereigns in Skull and Bones are only earned by collecting specific amounts of Pieces of Eight, which moves you up on the Weekly and Seasonal Leaderboards. Spending Pieces of Eight doesn't affect your progress towards Sovereign milestones.

Best ways to farm Sovereigns in Skull and Bones

Because Sovereigns are tied to Pieces of Eight, the only way to “farm” Sovereigns is to focus on activities that earn you the most Pieces of Eight. 

Once you’ve reached the endgame, there’s no point in earning Pieces of Eight in the less efficient ways you already know about.
