Walkthrough

Top Deck

The activity starts with Fallen Skiffs dropping enemies onto your Ketch, including Dregs, Vandals, Marauders, and Captains. Spider's Associates are here to help, but won't be very effective at fending off the enemies on their own.

When the pirates have been repelled, players need to align the cannon accelerators. There are four accelerator circles around the deck. Standing in them will align the nearby cannon, firing off a cannonball when it completes. Enemies will continue dropping in, and will interrupt this process if they enter one of the circles. On Master difficulty, be careful not to get overwhelmed by the invisible Marauders when defending the cannons.

When enough cannons have been fired, the cannon at the front of the ship will activate, allowing the team to launch themselves across to the enemy ship.

Below Deck

When the team enters the Ketch, they must interact with a console to gain access to the ship. One of the three doors will open, leading to the next encounter: the left door leads to the Ether Storage, the center door leads to the Treasure Hoard, and the right door leads to the Maintenance Bay. The door that opens is random, even on Master difficulty. A Raid Banner can also be placed before interacting with the console.

Ether Storage

Treasure Hoard

Maintenance Bay

Captain's Quarters

After completing the first encounter, the team will arrive at the captain's quarters, where the boss will be waiting with a group of enemies. The boss will leave shortly after being damaged. When all of the enemies are cleared out, another console must be interacted with. A Raid Banner can also be placed here.

The door to the next encounter will open. It will be chosen at random from the Ether Storage, Treasure Hoard, or Maintenance Bay. The only guarantee is that the previous room will not be chosen.

When players complete the second encounter, they will arrive at the Top Deck. A Raid Banner can be placed before interacting with a console, which will initiate the boss fight.
