Aquila figurehead and plundering 4 royal convoys

#1NogardaPosted 11/1/2013 4:37:52 AM
I've been trying to unlock this for about 3 hours. after reading the requirement, I'm boarding, and killing the enemy crew and doing the random second requirements, but I'm not receiving credit. At least I think I'm doing it right. I sunk one which only had about 5000 or less but I'm wondering if it is just me, or am I doing something wrong? going for ship markers /_|R.

I just really want this figurehead. In my mind I'll play the game out like parts of the Jackdaw are hand-me-downs from Grampa Kenway for Connor :)

Make sure you are fully connected with Uplay, theres a connection marker next to your minimap as an indicator.

Also dont sink them, but board them, that worked for me.

It also might have to be ships that are 'shared' by friends, not to sure on that one though. I share everything i find so just add me up for some extra ships when i find them, currently have 3.

Yes, you have to plunder ALL of the ships in the convoy, even the small escorts.

.... that is going to be a trick, i'm rather overpowered and any of the smaller gunboats get one shot...

I haven't done much exploring in the southern side, do all the ships get a bit stronger to the point where i won't one shot anything below a brig level?
I will not hesitate to put my life on the line to keep myself out of harms way.

The only ships u can 1-shot are gunboats. Schooners and up require at least two volleys so that you have the option to board them.

...and royal convoys are escorted by schooners.

Okay, so I've plundered plenty of royal convoys. The blue ones. That you can (and I did) share online. Plundered all of the ships in the convoy (I think the only "official" or constant ones are a frigate and two schooners - it seems like the other ships are randoms and/or go away, but the convoys ALWAYS have those three). Did three in one playthrough. Nothing.

I think they have to be ones that you did not discover and share (i.e., plunder 3 royal convoys shared by your friends).
