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 Greater Potions of Speed and Greater Potions of Dexterity. It 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 Corsair Crab.

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.


Deadwater Docks Key The Deadwater Docks Key is available in the Nexus for 100 Realm Gold.


The Deadwater Docks Guide is currently outdated.

Wandering Miniboss

A single Calamity Crab will always spawn in a random location within each Deadwater Docks, and will randomly roam the dungeon in search for players, savagely attacking anyone that it finds. Players that encounter the Crab may either battle it or flee far enough that it loses interest. It is extremely powerful, but slaying it yields loot akin to what the boss himself would drop.

Treasure Room “Boss”

Special, invincible chests can be found on skull-shaped islands guarded by a large number of Deadwater Admirals, Captains, and Lieutenants. Killing all the enemies will make the chest vulnerable. Multiple treasure rooms can spawn per dungeon, and the chest will randomly be in one of three colors that determine the quality of its loot.
