Lacquer is a Trade good obtained from the Player-owned port minigame. It is used in the creation of Death Lotus equipment. To get this good the player must have unlocked The Hook region. The maximum amount of lacquer a player can store at one time is 250. Any successful voyages after this will not increase the total.

In addition to Standard voyages, lacquer can be obtained through the following methods (see Special voyages):

  • Completing resource voyages from The Convict and The Exile
  • Completing the following joint voyages:
  • As a one time reward from the following:
    • 25 lacquer is a reward for completing The Assassin's storyline
    • 15 lacquer (and 10 Ancient bones) is a reward for completing The Exile's storyline
    • 50 lacquer (and 50 Plates) is a reward for completing the Hyu-Ji final mission

If a player wishes to farm Lacquer, it is recommended to build two Convict statues and one Assassin statue and use their joint mission.

Players may also buy individual units in the form of ports lacquer packs from Boni on Waiko after the miniquest Impressing the Locals. These cost 2 taijitu and 1,000 chimes each, and are the only way to earn lacquer outside of Player-Owned Ports.
