This article is about a trade good obtained through player-owned ports. For the bones rewarded from the Restless Ghost quest, see Ancient bones (item).
Ancient bones

Ancient bones are used in the creation of scrimshaws at a Scrimshaw Crafter, as well as death lotus darts and their off-hand counterparts at the workbench. It is a reward from completing the Biologist and Missionary storylines, as well as a reward from their specific voyages, and some standard voyages. If one wishes to 'farm' Ancient bones, it is recommended to build one/two Biologist and one/two Missionary statues, and use their standalone voyages. There is no joint voyage for Ancient bones, unlike other trade goods.

Fletching a scrimshaw requires 10 Ancient bones per scrimshaw created. Fletching a set of 25 lotus darts requires 1 set of ancient bones and 25 ascension shards. The maximum amount of Ancient bones a player can store at one time is 250. Any successful voyages after this will not increase the total.
