How to change your appearance in Skull and Bones

Each Pirate Den hosts a Vanity Atelier, where you can change both your clothes and your physical appearance in Skull and Bones.

When you first embark on your pirating adventure, you'll create a character. You'll choose your body type, skin color, eyes, hair, facial hair, and even if you're scarred up. It's pretty minimal, however. Thankfully, as you go about your swashbuckling, you'll unlock additional customization options and can change your appearance in Skull and Bones.

We'll walk you through how to alter your character after you've finalized their initial appearance.

How to change your clothing in Skull and Bones

There are two ways to change how you look in Skull and Bones. Both of them involve finding the Vanity Atelier building. Here are the steps to finding this merchant:

  1. Disembark at or fast travel to any Pirate Den, such as Sainte-Anne
  2. Open your map and locate the Vanity Atelier, noted by a mirror icon
  3. Mark the location and head there on foot
  4. Enter the building and speak to the character that runs the Vanity Atelier
  5. Select Purchase & Equip Items
  6. Look through the list of cosmetics to equip what you already own or buy something new for your pirate

(Move through the gallery of images to see each step.)

  • Sets
  • Headwear
