Sea of Thieves is an exploration-based pirate game which launched in March 2018. The title relies on short-term missions and cosmetic items to drive gameplay. While almost all objects can be purchased through in-game currency, certain coveted sets are exclusive to events like E3. For example, the Obsidian Eye of Reach sniper rifle and Obsidian Drum are part of the Black Dog equipment set. Only those who attended E3 2018 could've received codes for these. This means that they aren't accessible to everyone.
Certain other Black Dog items can be acquired by purchasing four boxes of Chips Ahoy! cookies. However, if you're a Sea of Thieves player where this snack isn't sold, you can't get them. However, the Obsidian Eye of Reach and Obsidian Drum are even more elusive. Due to their lack of availability, codes for these two items are being sold for almost $50 each on eBay. Codes for the Chips Ahoy! exclusives are mostly going for $10, which is less than four boxes of cookies.
Rare needs to host an event soon which gives everyone a chance to earn these E3-exclusive items. No one should feel pressured to spend up to $100 to complete in-game sets. Currently, there are numerous listings where dozens of gamers are paying roughly $50 for the Obsidian Drum alone.
Hopefully Sea of Thieves players will reach out to Rare. There's no denying that virtual goods have a certain appeal and completing sets is addictive. We'll keep you posted if the studio announces a concrete date for a chance to acquire them.
