How does The Helm work?

In Skull and Bones, The Helm is a progression system that allows you to build your own Pirate Empire via an underground smuggling network. The core system behind The Helm is split into three functions:

  • Supply Network
  • Distillery
  • Order Registry

First, you utilize your Supply Network to locate a liaison who will supply you with stolen materials at a good price. Visit this liaison and trade with them to get Raw Helm Materials.

Once you have the materials, you head to the Distillery to turn the raw materials into Helm Wares. The first supply chain you will do is acquire Sugar Cane to turn into White Skull Rum at your Distillery.

With the Helm Wares in hand, visit the Order Registry to find a buyer for your Helm Wares. You then sail to that buyer to sell your produced Helm Wares for a good profit as well as some extra Infamy.

Keep in mind, however, that you cannot fast-travel to the location from an Order Registry, and must manually sail the goods to that location. Also, while sailing for an order via the Order Registry, you open yourself to be attacked by Rogue Pirates who can attempt to sink your ship and steal your goods.
