Developer Rare And Publisher Microsoft Studios have released their new game titled Sea Of Thieves. it is action adventure game where a party of players travel and explore an open world with a pirate ship. they can embark on quests, collect loot and engage in combat with other players and do more.
In the game, players can get access to different types of quest, there is a particular quest where the players need to chase and catch pigs for a merchant. below is the guide on how to find and capture the pigs easily and also not let it die.
How To Find The Pigs In Sea Of Thieves
The pigs in the game are the wildlife NPCs and just like other animals spawn randomly on the map. the do not have a fixed location so you will need to search for it by exploring different island located on the map.
You can begin your quest for catching pigs by going to the nearest island and searching for it. while searching for it try to listen to the grunts of the pigs if you don’t hear any grunts on the island then its probably not there and you should move to the next island.
To increase the odds of finding the pigs quickly go to a medium or large size island, the animal is not rare and can be found just by visiting 2-3 big islands. my suggestion would be to get this merchant quest along with other chest finding quest to better utilize your time as you are bound to encounter a pig during your voyage.
How To Capture The Pigs
Just like other wildlife animals in the game, you cannot catch a pig with bare hands. to capture it you will need a cage. to get the cage you must first talk to the Merchant NPC and get the Pig quest. if you are in a party ask all other members to accept the quest.
Once you have done the above you will receive a cage which you can use to catch the snuggly little animal. to catch it just get near it with the cage in your hand, the cage will show a prompt select it to capture it.
How To Keep The Pigs Alive During Transport
The game does not tell that the pigs can die in the cage during transport and it also does not inform players on how to keep them alive which creates quite a confusion.
The simple method to keep alive is by feeding Bananas, yup feed it your health potion. but then the question arises when do you even feed it?. well if the pigs start squealing or make loud noises in the cage then it is a sign that it is hungry and you need to find it or it will die.
You should make sure to have enough bananas while catching a pig and once you catch one always keep in on the upper deck on the ship because if you keep it lower deck you won’t be able to hear it squealing.
