Encounter

You first encounter Void Pirates in the 4th chapter of the Story.

Zones with Blacksail active have up to 10 monsters marked on your map, kill them to get Void Sea Flames which you use at the Shattered Blacksail Totem that appears after you kill the map boss.

Interact with the Shattered Blacksail Totem to choose a reward option, the number of options you have are based upon the amount of Void Sea Flame you have collected, some options are more powerful and rarer than others. After making your selection, you are ambushed by waves of Void Pirates. Kill them and collect your plunder.

Completing the Void Pirates encounter may award Equipment, Currency, Memory Cards, Hero Relics, and Hero Memories. This is influenced by your chosen Void Sea Flame.

This is the Shattered Blacksail Totem.

Seal Whispers

Higher rarity Seal Whispers can be very rewarding. Rarity is based on color.

Completing a Void Pirate encounter allows you to select a Seal Whisper from the Void Terminal, access this by talking to Zenoth the Lightless or the flashy purple button towards the top of your screen.

Choose from 1 of 3 presented Seal Whispers to enhance the loot from your next fight against the boss within the Void Sea Terminal. In the Netherrealm, this boss is the Ghost Sea Bride. Some Seal Whispers are more rewarding and rarer than others.

Ghost Sea Bride

Ghost Sea Bride guards the hoard of treasure you've been working towards in the Netherrealm, challenge her after collecting 6 Seal Whispers. The difficulty of this encounter is based on the highest Timemark an applied Seal Whisper was collected from, and higher difficulty improves rewards further.

Your curated treasure haul can award Equipment, Currency, Memory Fragments, and Hero Relics. Ghost Sea Bride can also drop the 3 invitations used to fight the seasonal pinnacle boss: Lord of the Void Sea.

You'll be obliged to dispatch Ghost Sea Bride many times throughout the Season, learn how to do so with brutal efficiency with our Boss Guide!
