Im having trouble find some to upgrade my Jackdaw. I have like 50,000 reales but cant buy anything useful because i need metal and wood.

I find the ships in the eastern or north-eastern part of map carry more building supplies while the north has mostly sugar and rum but your best bet is south or south-west

So far the best way to get metal I found with out battling frigates it to have a wanted level and take out pirate hunts that come after you they always have some. If you can take on the frigates head south and you'll find lots with metal and wood.

Or for wood attack ever brig that has some as they carry it a lot.

If going after frigates make sure you have your heavy shot upgraded as it helps kill them faster.

you joking it is easy just attack any ships carrying it and there are a lot of them just use r2 for info on the ships , just remember that you must board the ship to get all the materials if you sink it and collect the floating materials you only get half.

Not easy for me, My luck only finds ships with Cloth, Sugar and Rum, and Rarely wood. I almost never find metal. And when i do its on a like level 40 Man o' War with like 4 Frigates as back up. I die before i can even do a decent amount of damage.

Head to areas marked "medium" on your map. In my experience the highest level ship there is a lvl 29 frigate. A lot of frigates and even brigs in these areas will often carry a decent amount of either wood or metal (some up to 120-150 units of either). Or just get your wanted level up and wait for the pirate hunters.

Best method for getting materials are capturing level 4 man of war hunter ships

on the plus side they are the biggest strongest ship you can add to the fleet too at

70 attack, 30 speed, 90 cargo

I don't think the TC's Jackdaw is quite ready for a lvl 4 man of war pirate hunter, but otherwise yes this is the best option.

if you want a good amount of any resources go to the south of the map because the ships carries plenty of resources especially the man o wars,

frigates are there too and brigs so head for the south buddy

you can get lots of metal easy by killing lvl 1 wanted level hunter brigs. They always carry 80-100 metal

as for wood I would just kill every ship I see.
