    Side Quests (Continued)


    There are three types of resources that are used in Kenway's Fleet:


    Gemstones are the currency in Kenway's Fleet. They are used to repair ships, unlock new docks, and expand your fleet. To obtain gemstones you must either salvage ships or complete Ship Battles.


    Cargo is what you will be trading to make money and is gained by completing Ship Battles. There are five types: Rice, Tobacco, Cocoa, Wine, and Olive Oil.

    Fire Barrels

    Fire Barrels are used in Ship Battles when the outcome looks grim to do massive damage.


    Ship Battles

    Ship Battles are a major function of Kenway's Fleet, securing routes and giving you new resources. Trade routes are classified as four different types: Green = Safe, Yellow = Hazardous, Orange = Dangerous, and Red = Treacherous. When hoving on any trade route you may have the option to take part in ship battles. Once selected, the odds of success will be presented. If it is less than 100% you can either add more ships or repair ships to reach 100% (less than 100% can result in losing your ships altogether). There are three attributes that determine the outcome of each battle:


    The ships speed determines how fast it will fire, with the ship in the top row getting a +10 speed bonus. In general you want the ship in the top row to be faster in speed value than the fastest ship in the enemies ranks. This will allow you to strike first and slow the enemy attack.


    This is the ships damag output. The ship in the middle row gets a +5 damage bonus.


    The maximum damage the ship can sustain. The ship in the bottom row gets a +5% health bonus.

    In general, frigates are the best all around as they are not too slow but still put out a lot of damage. Keep a few in your docks specifically for combat to ensure you are getting the most resources with the least amount of damage to your ships that will need to be repaired.


    Trading Missions

    Trade Missions give you the chance to turn resources earned through Ship Battles into money. Each mission involves loading up one of your ships with the required cargo units and sending them to a destination. Every mission has four characteristics:

    Travel Time

    This is the required real-world time (hours.minutes) needed to complete a mission. This can be shortened by using a ship with a high Travel Reduction percent.


    This is the amount of real-world time before a completed mission can be taken again.

    Cargo Units/Space

    This is the amount of resources and space required for the ship with low cargo ships such as schooners are unable to take on high Cargo missions (40+).


    This is the reward for completing a mission. Note that any additional rewards past money is a one-time reward that will not be rewarded on multiple completions.
