Assassin’s Creed 4 Kenway’s Fleet Guide – Trading Missions and Ships


Kenway’s Fleet is unlocked during the fourth sequence of main storyline. This is an amazing way of earning some good amount of Reales. However, this feature of the game cannot be accessed during the Offline Mode.

Assassin’s Creed 4 Kenway’s Fleet Management

Kenway’s Fleet can be accessed via Captain’s cabin in Jackdaw – from the map lying on the table. Alternatively, you can also use your iOS and Android devices as a second screen to control your Fleet.

In order to send a ship to your Fleet, you need to defeat it first and then choose to send it to Fleet during the Boarding Option. While you are in the Kenway’s Fleet’s UI, you can manage your ship and complete Trading Missions.

The Reales earned are automatically transferred to your main game. These Reales can then be used to upgrade the Jackdaw to stand a better chance against tougher enemies.

Resources

While you are in the Kenway’s Fleet’s UI, you will be able to earn Gemstones, Cargo, and Fire Barrels. Gemstones can be regarded as the currency of Kenway’s Fleet’s UI and can be used to repair your ship and purchase docks.

Completing the Ship Battles will get you Cargo which includes rice, tobacco, cocoa, olive oil, and wine. As for the Fire Barrels, they are basically weapons that will help you out during the battles.

The route which your ship takes has its own Route Danger Ranks, namely; safe, Hazardous, Dangerous, and Treacherous.

After you choose an initial opponent, the UI shows you the Odds of Success that you have for the particular battle. The Odds of Success can be increased considerably by taking in more ships and repairing your vessel.

The three main things which determine your Odds of Success in a particular battle are your HP, Firepower, and Speed.

Ships

Following are the ships you can add to your fleet by capturing them. You will need them in your fleet if you intend to complete all the trading missions in the game.

Provided you send the right ships, you will be able to complete all these missions. Only frustrating thing about fleet missions is the time it takes to complete them. Although you can reduce the amount of time taken by sending upgraded ships.

      It says you can’t play offline, but you actually can on the app. Just sync with your ubisoft account, and have fun.

    • Rowan

      How do you get fire barrels??!!!!?? I used mine all up and no one ANYWHERE tells me how to get more!

      • Skyte

        It seems you get them semi-randomly from clearing trade routes. They are still rare compared to other resources so keep em in reserve for those fights that will never be in your favor, like I used em in a fight that 3 of my best Frigates only had 20% victory chance in.
