This page is for the current version of Smuggler's Rest; for the former training area, see Smuggler's Rest (History).
Heavily updated and expanded for the event, it does still resemble the old version - although now danger lurks at every turn! While the event is active, pirates ranging from CR 1 kobolds to CR 30 ogres roam the island (verified up to CR 30), although they're passive until activated (by being attacked, being near another pirate who is attacked, or being near a treasure chest when it's opened). Sometimes you'll hear a whistle, similar in function to a bosun's call: that means that a CR 23, 28 or 33, red-named monster has just appeared nearby. Those are appreciably harder to defeat, and yield appreciably more plunder.
The only way to get to the island while the event is inactive is by being bound there and dying, or having somebody there use a Bracelet of Friends/Greater Bracelet of Friends to summon you. During the event, Sailor Calatin, found on the northern Harbor docks (near Arachnophobia), will transport PCs to Smuggler's Rest and back.

Transport to Crystal Cove
Once the 500 (as of Sept 2017) Treasure Map Pieces are acquired, the Transport to Crystal Cove opens for 40 minutes (as of Sept 2017). Interacting with it will allow entry to the Crystal Cove challenge as long as you have a Treasure Compass in your inventory. Turning over a Treasure Compass to the Navigator applies a 6 minute buff called which allows your to travel to Crystal Cove without further payment until the effect wears off.
