While trading in Sunlight-Filled Mirrorcatch Boxes is immensely profitable, it brings mortal danger. The captain's addiction to sunlight is measured by Quality SS bazaarsunsmall.png Menaces: Yearning, Burning: the higher it is, the more dangerous it becomes. If it high enough, a Random Event can be triggered at zee, where the captain starts uncontrollably opening the boxes themselves, losing sunlight and inflicting SS bloodstainsmall.png Menaces: Wounds. This random event has three variations, depending on SS bazaarsunsmall.png Menaces: Yearning, Burning.

If SS bazaarsunsmall.png Menaces: Yearning, Burning high enough and there are several Sunlight-Filled Mirrorcatch Boxes on board, the event may turn into a chain reaction, repeating until the captain's imminent death... unless they manage to fling every sunlight-filled boxes overboard before it's too late. If someone survives this ordeal, it might be a good idea for them to lay off the sunlight trade for a while, and rest frequently in SS Interactions Your Lodgings.png their lodgings to decrease SS bazaarsunsmall.png Menaces: Yearning, Burning.

If you plan on engaging in the mirror-box trade, it's highly recommended to not upgrade your Lodgings until you've had your fill of it. Upgraded lodgings cost you ten times the the amount of Echoes to rest, but resting in an Elegant Townhouse reduces your Menaces: Yearning, Burning stat by the same amount as it would if you were resting in your rooms above the Helmsman. Also, note that the Cladery Heir may help here, once, so save it until you need it.
