Skull and Bones – How To Restore And Increase Stamina


As you explore the oceans of Skull and Bones, you might find yourself struggling to catch up to targets or run away from pursuers. As such, it’s important to keep your crew in good shape, whether you’re sailing to the unknown or heading to your next battle. Here’s our guide on how to restore and increase stamina in Skull and Bones.

How to restore and increase stamina in Skull and Bones

You can restore and increase stamina by lowering your sails, cooking and eating certain types of food, equipping particular ship furniture, or interacting with Pirate’s Bonfires. We discuss each method in the sections below.

Lowering your ship’s sails

Generally speaking, hoisting your sails to move at the fastest possible speeds will gradually deplete your stamina meter. This mechanic is denoted by the curved meter next to your ship’s speed in the lower-right portion of the screen. If you’re sailing at full speed (i.e. pressing the “W” key until the meter is in the green), you’ll notice that your crew’s stamina gets drained. However, if you lower your sails (i.e. pressing the “S” key), your ship will still be able to move around, while also replenishing stamina over time. Use this to your advantage in case you’re simply sailing with the wind at your back or whenever you don’t need to pursue another vessel.

Alternate between sailing at full or medium speeds to replenish your stamina.

Food and meals that restore stamina

A lot of edible items in Skull and Bones help with stamina restoration. Take note that eating cooked meals is better than eating grilled entrees or raw ingredients. Still, here are some examples:

Pirate Bonfire buffs

Another way to increase and restore stamina in Skull and Bones is through the buffs granted by Pirate Bonfires. These structures are found in outposts, which also serve as fast travel points. Interact with these to make your character throw green powder, which then ignites the structure. Doing so grants a 20-minute stamina boost after exiting combat within the outpost’s area. Note that this buff also affects the rest of your group if you’re in a party.
