  • Start Location: Cabo de Cruz
  • Reward: 1800
  • Reales Difficulty: 4/5

This contract asks us to bring the merchant 60 Wood . If you have spare wood on you upon commencement of the mission, you can hand it in right away to complete the contract on the spot. If not, we’ll need to do some plundering.

At this point, most of you will probably have 60 wood. To find large supplies of wood, try and take down bigger ships like Frigates and Brigs. These can sometimes carry a large supply so keep an eye out with your telescope.

To prevent any unnecessary conflict, as you cruise around the nearby area, pull out Edward’s spyglass and zoom in and out to identify ships in the area. When focused on a vessel, the spyglass will give you information about any cargo they might be carrying.

Find a ship that is transporting some wood, attack it and board it to earn the materials. For 60 wood, you may need to board multiple ships in order to accumulate a sufficient amount. Once you have 60 wood, return to the contract giver on the dock in Cabo de Cruz to complete the contract.

The year is 1715. Pirates rule the Caribbean and have established their own lawless Republic where corruption, greediness, and cruelty are commonplace. Among these outlaws is a brash young captain named Edward Kenway. His fight for glory has earned him the respect of legends like Blackbeard, but also drawn him into the ancient war between Assassins and Templars, a war that may destroy everything the pirates have built.
