A complete checklist of sailors is now available for your expedition and wherever to obtain them.
There are 126 fortress sailors mentioned at the moment, 52 of which are available in our current game version. Among them:
They can be obtained from several sources, detailed in the guide. In general, the total resources needed to get 50 sailors are:
Many sailors can be purchased with Victory Seals, which you can get by sending sailors you already have on expeditions. If you're looking to upgrade quickly, it might be wise to focus your Expeditions on Seals of Victory. However, note that this will delay your access to other merchants (raid seals/adventurers) who may be selling interesting resources or collectibles.
The best sailors are mostly limited to one ship. If you want to be efficient, you need to acquire new Lost Ark ships as you accept new sailors.
The sailors used in your fortress are entirely different from those used for navigation! Be careful when exchanging: the sailors of the fort are marked accordingly, and the way their resistance is displayed is separate. This guide only applies to fortress sailors.
At the moment, four sailors can be obtained from rapports. All of them are fast rapports, available pretty early in the game. One of them is a legendary sailor. They cover eight distinct weaknesses… and icing over the cake. They can all be utilized on any ship to your expeditions.
The main disadvantage is that some significant collectibles(primarily giant hearts, island tokens, potions, or masterpieces) require other connections. According to your priorities, it would help if you aimed for all of them as early as possible.
Legendary Sailor - Anabel
How to get: Improve relations (17,800 points) with Anabel in the Rania Village (North Verne)
It is recommended to use gifts to improve your rapport because one of the two actions you can use (emotion of Joy) requires a maximum connection with Mokamoka in Mokoko Village. Using Melody of the Heart only, it may take up to 70 days.
Epic Sailor - Orne
How to get: Improve rapport (5900 points) with Ornn in Totrich (Argentina)
If you can unlock Song of Resonance quickly, it will take only ten days to reach maximum rapport with Ornn, which is the best way to unlock him as a sailor. If you cannot receive the Song of Resonance, it will take no more than 24 days without any gifts.
Rare Sailor - Poppy
How to get: Improve rapport (17,800 points) with Poppy in Icewing Height (Sushi)
It would help if you had the Totopia Attachment to emote to increase this rapport as quickly as possible. It's easy to get, so don't sweat it. Without the need for Lost Ark gifts, it is going to take 34 days to develop a rapport with Poppy. By achieving this, you can also get a cute mount puppy.
Rare sailor Jude
How to get: Improve relationship (5900 points) with rancher Jude in Frozen Sea (Sushi)
As with Anabel, you are using gifts is an effective solution because Joy emotes maximum rapport with Mokamoka in Mokoko Village. However, Jude is far less efficient as a sailor than Anabel. If you are only using Song of Valor, it will take no more than 24 days.
These sailors are due to the collection of Mokoko around the Lost Ark world. These are the sailors you want to have on your team as soon as possible, given that two of them can be used on any ship and three covers 5 different elements. What's more, if you start farming early, you can get your first sailor even before accessing your fortress expeditions. The task is not difficult but, alas, a long one.
A total of 850 mokoko seeds are required.
Legendary sailor - Good Paruru
How to get: Collect 850 Mokoko Seeds and bring them to Totoma in Mokoko Village (Tortoik)
Epic Sailor - Mukomuko
How to get: Collect 500 Mokoko Seeds and bring them to Totoma in Mokoko Village (Tortoik)
Senior Sailor - Chikachika
How to get: Collect 150 Mokoko Seeds and bring them to Totoma in Mokoko Village (Tortoik)

The last (and longest) way to get fortress sailors. Visiting Traders are merchants who regularly appear in your stronghold and trade your sailors for Victory Seals.
Traders and their inventory are in rotation (the trader changes on a schedule, and each time the trader returns with different sailors to trade).
Even if you hire a sailor merchant, they will only sell one at a time.
You start with 3 merchants, and only one (Rami) can sell you, fortress sailors.
You need to complete the Tome of Adventure on each continent to unlock more.
We are interested in Flarke (70% in the Artetin volume) and Astiel (80% in the Rohendel book).
Another merchant of interest to us, Floor, can be unlocked by completing several of Oona's quests x28 times in the Great Castle on the Yorn Continent.
If you want to unlock your stronghold's sailors as quickly as possible, avoid hiring any merchant other than these three (Flark in Artetin, Astiel in Roendel, Floor in Yorn), as rotation makes it difficult to get the sailors you need. However, this may delay other collectibles, specifically 1 Masterpiece, 1 Adventure, Common Sailors, and a few Skill Runes.
Stronghold Merchant - Rami
Rami is one of three available starting merchants. She sells a lot of low-quality (regular/senior) sailors, but she sells them for next to nothing, and they can be used on any ship. Never worry about them if you've presently gotten more excellent high-quality Sailors from Mokoko Seeds or Rapports unless you need to cover a particular weakness you don't previously have.
Resources required to get each sailor from Rami:
Stronghold Merchant - Flake
Clark can be unlocked by completing 70% of Artetin's Tome. Then you need to complete the Morlo Guild Invitation quest and study the contract in the laboratory of your fortress (this will take about 5 minutes).
Resources required to get each sailor from Clark:
Stronghold Merchant - Ariel
Ariel might be unlocked by finishing 80% of Roendel's Tome. Then you need to complete the Silver tide Merchant Guild Invitation quest and research the contract in your stronghold lab (it will take about 5 minutes).
Resources needed to get each sailor from Ariel:
Fortress Seller - Floor
The Floor is the hardest (or rather longest) to find as a merchant, as you need to complete 28 Una quests in the Great Castle (Yorn Continent) before unlocking the "Umar's Cosmetics' Invitation" quest. Then you will need to study the contract in the laboratory of your fortress.
I can't confirm if Floor is selling these Sailors as the quest is very long. Sources seem to contradict this point: some imply that Floor does not sell sailors, others indicate that she sells 4 of them, and some third state that she only sells 2 of them (Joffrey and Hilder), while others 2 (Wat and Phoebe) are not currently available in our version of the game. If you go with this sailor quest, proceed at your own risk.
Resources needed to get each sailor from Floor:
Fortress Merchant - Ours
Ours is obtained in Punica. Once you have completed 70% of Punica's adventure book, you will have access to the quest "Invitation from the Lailai Traders Association". Complete it to unlock Nasha as a merchant in your stronghold.
Resources required to get each sailor from Our:
Epic Sailor - High - 2615 Seals of Victory
Rare Sailor - Plione - Seals of Victory 1970
These two are included in making this guide as complete as possible, but they are technically impossible to skip. You automatically get contracts for Zenith and Austin when you complete the quest in Good Neighbor Cales Fortress, which unlocks the Expedition mechanic.
How to get: Complete the Good Neighbor Cals quest in your stronghold.
Ordinary sailor - Zenith
How to get: Complete the "Good Neighbor Kals" quest in your stronghold.
