Hey, I have been playing Black Flag a lot and really have trouble finding Metal and Wood, I look everywhere it can take me almost an hour to find one ship containing around 35 wood and metal, its pretty annoying, where is the best spot to get wood and metal? Thanks :3

Hello look at the south part of the map,cause there you will find also bigger ships and they have also wood and metal hope that helps.

Otherwise try to look at YouTube for it.

Also use your Spyglass so you can see amount of content the ships have

Get into Wanted status. Hunter Brigs are loaded with metal (50-100 usually). Frigates and Man o War can also carry a lot of metal and wood (use your spyglass before engaging them to check their cargo). If your ship isn't capable of taking on Man O War, stick with the Hunter Brigs and do a few plantations/warehouses. Plantations/Warehouses are an easy way (if you play stealthy and are patient) to get all kinds of cargo.

go to the south part of map in medium or hard areas, and frigate or man o wars are your targets, sometimes a brig will appear with a large amount in medium areas, but mostly frig and mano, use spyglass, hunters are usually loaded too

exactly HOW DO YOUGET TO SAIL IN THE LOWER HALF HMMMMMMM? I'm the 1796 most feared pirate BECAUSE I'M STUCK UP HERE IN THE TOP OF THIS FRIGGIN MAP!!! I once held over 100,000 reales. DID I GET TO USE THE WHOLE MAP? NO! DO I HAVE TO HAVE 100% ON ALL 3 SEQUENCES TO MOVE ON? I'VE FOUND ALL THE ANIMUS PIECES AND ALL THE CHESTS ON THE TOP PORTION OF THE MAP. I HARPOONED EVERYTHING INCLUDING THE WHITE WHALE. I HUNTED ALLTHE ANIMALS. MY SHIP IS 90% UPGRADED AND I EVEN TOOK OUT SOME GALLEONS,MAN-OF-WAR , ETC. YET TROUGH ALL THIS MESS I STILL CAN'T USE THE WHOLE MAP.

You must progress through the story to unlock all the parts of the map.

The Safest way to get stuff is by getting warehouse keys and getting the supplies at the warehouse. BTW here is a link to a page that shows the locations of the warehouses http://www.gosunoob.com/ac4-black-flag/warehouse-locations-guide/ Hope this helped :)

Where exactly are you in the story?? I don't remember not being allowed to go to the south... you just have to watch out for that blockade the British have set up between Cuba and Hispaniola, and avoid the fort's patrol areas.

Also... those forts at either end of Cuba on their own islands. You can get by them by staying as far away, using your fastest speed, and avoiding the mortar fire. They will try and shoot you within 500 meters, but I was able to get by fine earlier in the game. That being said, you don't have to, everything you need IS in the north.

i found that the quickest way of making wood and metal and sometimes cloth too is by finding naval convoys around your map.every convoy will nalso give you an amount of reales from 2000-10000 which is really useful too if you cant find any naval convoys then go to taverns located around your map and ask for information this will cost you 200 reales [money] but u will be able to attack this convoy and get lots of metal and wood usually about 100-200 of each please note that asking for information will some times end up showing you the location of cadavers instead of convoys but other than that wairhouses are a fun and safe way of collecting wood and metal especially the one on cat island

Fight and defeat large brig ships. Then you can get lots more supplies.
