<Crow Coin Exchange>
Ravinia is the NPC that allows you to spend Crow Coins obtained from trading [Level 5] Barter goods. Her Crow Coin Shop is located on Crow’s Nest, an island in Ross Sea. (She also gives you 1,000 Crow Coins and many ship upgrade materials, if you complete her 7 day Ship Upgrade Log quest line.)
Ravinia’s Sailing quest line is very good, giving you half of many of the materials for upgrading Epheria Sailboat/Frigate to Caravel/Galleass. It’s also extremely good for Sailing XP. At the end of the series, (Ship Upgrade Log VII – day 7), you obtain 1,000 Crow Coins.
Crow Coin Shop Highlights
- Crow Coin Shop Items:
- 7 day sailing compass for 400 Crow Coins
- lots of ingredients for ship parts and upgrading ships
- parts for Khan’s Heart
- an item required for making the elixir to cure sick Sailors.
- Crow Coin Coupons for Manos:
As of the 3/18/2020 Update, you can no longer exchange crow coupons for Manos Accessories. You can trade your coupons back to Ravinia or Rebinia for 10 Crow Coins each. You can still buy Manos Accessories for crow coins at Rebinia on Lema Island.
Ravinia’s Crow Coin Shop: Price & Item List
Crow Coins are obtained with Level 5 bartering. They are given to Ravinia for materials used in ship upgrade/parts and other Great Ocean related items.
Be careful spending Crow Coins, if you are planning on upgrading to the last tier of ship, Carrack. Carrack upgrade requires items that will be more diffiuclt to obtain and you may want them for that. (Brilliant materials are the most diffiult to obtain and not cheap to buy at 1,600 Crow Coins each.)

Ravinia’s Location: Crow’s Nest Map
Ravinia is located inside a cave on Crow’s Nest in Ross Sea. Look for the entrance next to a dock on the SW side of the island.
There is no <Wharf Manger> on Crow’s Nest. (Or any other NPC’s that I am aware of.) Apparently, it has a hidden underground area. (Patrigio’s Vault.)
Crow’s Nest is located north and a little east of Tinberra Island. Start from Velia and sail far NE past Iliya Island.
Crow’s Nest is barely visible as a faded volcano-shaped island on the world map. This is because it is covered in map fog.
TIP: It helps to see Crow’s Nest better, if you angle your map in World Map view. (Press RMB and drag. This causes the map to rotate and you can look north from the side, instead of top down.)
Note that once you enter Ross Sea, your World Map disappears and the mini-map is of no help. Make sure you angle your ship in the correct direction from Tinberra Island. You will be able to see a silhouette of the island as you look out from your ship into the distant horizon. (As long as weather permits!)
