Everyone wants to change up their appearance every now and then in Sea of Thieves, and now you have that option. You can reset your character's looks as you head back to the bottom of the ship to choose a premade pirate based on their gender and unique appearance. It is possible that you grew bored of your current character, or never took the time to make a great selection in the first place.

Now you can have that chance by following a few simple steps, but it isn't free if you want to keep all of your progress. Luckily, it is fairly cheap and is a great way to change things up when you want a new look for your pirate in Sea of Thieves!

Updated August 17, 2021 by Gabrielle Huston: Sea of Thieves is still a wildly popular game, but it's not always abundantly clear how to change up your character's appearance, even after several updates to the base game. Plus, there is a world of difference between changing your outfit and changing your character's face and body. Read on to learn more.

Changing Your Cosmetics Vs. Changing Your Character

When you first played Sea of Thieves, you got to choose from a randomly generated set of pirates. After that, there are lots of options to change your hair, hair colour, makeup, clothes, and more by purchasing cosmetics with money you make in-game. You may be happy just making a few edits to those things! Actually changing your character will allow you to choose a pirate with a different body type, gender presentation, skin colour, and facial features.

The first step is to load into the main menu of Sea of Thieves until you reach the part where you are asked to choose your experience. This is the screen where you would generally choose to enter Adventure Mode (where you can complete Tall Tales) or Arena Mode (where you compete with other pirates). It also tells you what the latest update has changed about and/or added to the game!

When you are in the main menu, you will see a box that says Pirate Emporium in the upper right-hand corner. When you click on this it will bring you to a new window where you can buy things like cosmetics for your ship, pirate, or pets.

When you look at the top of your screen, you will see several different tabs that you can cycle through in the Pirate Emporium to view different kinds of content.

The tab you are looking for is the Pirate tab, and you will see a range of weapon cosmetics, costumes, and emotes - as well as the Pirate Appearance Potion!

Once you land on the main page of the Pirate tab, you will see something called the Pirate Appearance Potion in the bottom center of your screen. It will cost you 149 Ancient Coins, which comes out to around $2.09 USD, or $2.69 CAD.

If you don't have enough Ancient Coins you can always purchase more by clicking on the icon at the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. They often run sales on these coins, as well as hold special events where you can earn them for yourself in-game; one example is to take on Ancient Skeletons.

It will give you options of different Ancient Coin packages which are as follows:

Pirate appearance in Sea of Thieves
Once you have acquired the potion you need to relaunch Sea of Thieves in order to use it. You will then be taken to the bottom of the ship where you can choose a new character, and you won't lose any of the progress you have made.

Don't settle on a pirate you only kinda like! You just spent money to switch, after all. If you don't like any of the options that Sea Of Thieves has given you, just shut it down and reboot it again to get a new set of characters.
