    The nerf for this achievement went live on the Shrouded Spoils update on November 28th, 2018.

    This achievement unlocks once you or someone in your crew sells 360 Villainous Skulls or Ashen Villainous skulls to the Order of Souls NPC at one of the 7 outposts in game. Skulls turned in by alliance or enemy crews do not count toward this achievement or in game commendation.

    You can find Villainous and Ashen Villainous skulls in these ways:
    1. A chance of dropping after defeating a skeleton captain during an Order of Souls voyage, Athena quest, or Message in a Bottle voyage. The chance of a Villainous skull dropping increases the higher the Order of Souls voyage level is. Athena missions have the highest drop rate of Villainous skulls.
    2. Randomly washed ashore or under water around islands.
    3. Randomly in shipwrecks
    4. Randomly as loot at skull forts
    5. Randomly as loot found on skeleton ships that can be stolen during battle or after defeating the ship and recovering as it floats to the surface.
    6. By stealing or receiving it as a gift from another crew.

    crewdyJust an FYI for others, turning them in to the Masked Stranger at Reaper’s Hideout does not count towards this.

    SyphonidesTurning them in to the guy at Reaper's Hideout as per the Ships of Fortune update does not count towards this either.

    Ahoy Matees! Welcome to Sea of Thieves!

    The below video discusses the best place and fastest way to get this achievement after the shrouded spoils update!

    Artie has supplied a text guide of where you can find Villainous Skulls so I will not replicate that here (drop him a like), but the below video is a guide that I think is the Fastest way to get Villainous skulls as well as get the achievement for killing 1000 captains (Hunter of the cursed captains achievement says 700 but still needs 1000 as of right now), and obtainining 150,000 gold in the Order of the souls (Mercenary of the Order achievement).

    I hope you find the video helpful!

    This achievement is earned easier now with the emissary flag update. Vote for the order of souls emissary flag and start a voyage. Once you get to grade 5 emissary visit any order of souls tent to get an emissary quest. This can be active while you still have an order of souls contract as they can over lap. In my experiences you will get 4 small islands with 4 captains a piece all the same type
    Gold, Shadow, etc. all of these captains will drop a villainous skull so if your crew can accomplish you’ll have 16 villainous easy from this method. Also always check small islands or anywhere else you go for a named captain or ashen captain as they always drop a villainous skull when defeated. Hope this guide helps! Any questions or recommendations feel free to give feedback. Happy Sailing!! 🧜🏻‍♀️🦈
