A Wreck is a naturally occurring structure found in the Shipwrecked DLC. It can occasionally be encountered in the Ocean biome, on dark colored "ship graveyard" tiles, and in the Coral Reef biome. It appears a broken down part of a sunken ship. It is covered with Limpets, and can be harvested every 2 days to yield 1-3 Limpets. It can be hammered down to obtain 1 Boards, but doing so may summon a Pirate Ghost. Wrecks in ship graveyards will always summon a Ghost.
Names[edit | edit source]
Some Wrecks have names. Possible list of names are:
|Mary Celeste||Orca||Golden Hind|
|Santa Maria||Piper Maru||Mississinewa|
|Nomadic||Baron of Renfrew||Batavia|
