Main Walkthrough

Danger Level: 48

The ruins of a once mighty ship, the Shipwreck of the Empress is only accessible once your team has a boat of their own. In order to acquire said boat you'll need to complete one of Partitio's Scent of Commerce quests, specifically the one based in Tropu'hopu. This will allow you to purchase a seafaring vessel for 100,000 leaves. 

Once you have your ship, the only way to get to Shipwreck of the Empress is via On the Water, the ship exploration map that allows you to travel from port to port. Jump to Canalbrine and cast off. You'll find the dungeon a little ways to the north.


  • Animated Armor - Weak to Dagger, Staff, Lightning, Dark - Drop / Steal Empowering Lychee (M)
  • Buccaneer Bones - Weak to Dagger, Staff, Lightning, Light - Drop / Steal Bottle of Poison Dust
  • Sea Anemone - Weak to Sword, Polearm, Axe - Drop / Steal Dreamy Flower
  • Swordfish (water only) - Weak to Polearm, Fire, Lightning, Wind - Drop / Steal Refreshing Jam
  • Vagrant Birdking I - Weak to Polearm, Axe, Bow, Lightning - Drop / Steal Inspiriting Plum (M)
  • Vagrant Birdking II - Weak to Polearm, Axe, Bow, Lightning - Drop / Steal Dreamy Flower
  • Vagrant Birdking III - Weak to Polearm, Fire, Lightning - Drop / Steal Energizing Pomegranate (M)
A save point waits a short walk from the ladder of your ship. West of the save point you'll find stairs own into the water, and you can use them to sail south, to a chest. The chest contains an Inspiriting Plum Basket. The dock on the west side of this little body of water will take you back to the main path, and if you look just north of the ladder you need to climb you'll find a chest containing a Thunder Soulstone (L).

The pathways from the east and the west meet up at what appears to be the bottom of the ship's mast. Look east of here and you'll find a ladder up to a chest containing a Lost Tribe's Spear. To the east you'll find an open area with stairs leading off in three directions. To the south is a dead end, but if you take the less-obvious stairs in the north you'll find your way down to a chest containing a Cursed Shield. (Equip this on someone wearing a Blessing in Disguise and it's quite good.)

The final staircase, leading west, takes you into what appears to be the captain's quarters. Check the doorway beneath the room to find a chest containing a Master Thief's Sapphire Stone, a quest item, then head into the captain's quarters. A chest behind the captain's remains contains a Rusty Dagger. Another quest item, the Rusty Dagger is one of the weapons belonging to the Armsmaster Job that can be reforged, and is likely the most important reason to visit the Shipwreck of the Empress.

There is no boss waiting for you in the Shipwreck of the Empress, so, that's that. You can either make your way back to your ship to continue sailing the seas, or teleport to a town and journey by land.
