The Deadwater Docks is a high-level dungeon that is a much more difficult version of the Pirate Cave.
This dungeon is a source for both Potions of Speed and Potions of Dexterity, and is also the main source of the Pirate King’s Cutlass and the Wavecrest Concertina, along with two pieces of the Pirate King Warrior ST Set.
The portal to the Deadwater Docks is a guaranteed drop from the Crystal Prisoner, which only spawns once per realm.
|The Realm Eye says:|
As Dreadstump became more interested with parties than piracy, Jon Bilgewater and his crew seized the opportunity to make a name for themselves.
For several years, Bilgewater’s buccaneers ran an efficient smuggling syndicate carrying prohibited goods between their grotto and the kingdom now known as the Shatters.
Though they were caught by authorities on many occasions, they always managed to weasel their way out of any serious consequences.
The Deadwater Docks Key is available in the Nexus for 100 .
See the Deadwater Docks Guide for a complete walk-through on the dungeon and all its enemies.
Upon entering Deadwater Docks, you will first be confronted with some destructible blocks. After destroying them, you will be able to enter into the main dungeon area. Similar to the original Pirate Cave, you will see platforms and water. You may walk on the platforms, but the dark blue areas are now “evil water”. If you stand in or move through evil water, you will take damage. This damage ignores your defense stat, just like lava damage.
The boss, Jon Bilgewater, does not reside here - you will need to find the portal to “Bilgewater’s Grotto”, where the boss awaits you. Navigate through the docks to find another walled called “The Heroic Observer“, which is a wall with very high HP and regenerates all missing HP every few seconds. You will need sufficient DPS to break the wall and enter into the room containing the portal.
One Treasure Room is guaranteed to be found in each instance of the dungeon. The Treasure Room will be a large, round room, consisting of one or more narrow, winding walkways with no hostile enemies. At the end of the path(s) will be a Deadwater Docks Chest. Moving close to the chest will remove some blocks and allow for a quick exit of the room. The chest has a chance to be “upgraded” up to two times, as seen by changing to silver or gold, which is associated with an increase in its loot drop rates.
Jon Bilgewater is located in a Bilgewater’s Grotto, a separate room of the dungeon whose portal is found in a treasure-filled room in the Docks, past the Heroic Observer.

Before Patch X.32.4.1 (Jan 2020), the sprite originally looked like this:
For some reason, Evil Rainwater is found in the Treasure Room instead of Evil Water, even though they are aesthetically and functionally identical.
