Somewhere in Sequence 6, Edward Kenway unlocks a diving bell. You, of course, use the diving bell for the story mission where you gather medicine from a wrecked ship, but there are other purposes for the diving bell.
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag; Assassin’s Creed 4 Kenway’s Fleet Guide – Trading Missions and Ships. Completing the Ship Battles will get you Cargo which includes rice, tobacco, cocoa. Assassins creed black flag care package. Adds new ship options and gives Edward, Adewale, and the Jackdaw crew actual pirate outfits! In this Mod Author. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag allows you for a free exploring of the Caribbean Sea. Due to this fact, game creators prepared several class of ships which may be found during sailing. The main ship is the Jackdaw of Edward Kenway, but it's not the only one boat you'll find in this game. This mod finally lets you play with -Green eyes -brown hair -brown goatee. All of this three are selectable, though original blond hair would look crap with brown goatee XDYou need Resorep for this, as all other Black Flag texture mods do.
Shipwrecks dot the Caribbean seas, with treasure chests for the taking. In a period appropriate fashion, these treasures will not be easy to grab and will require scouring the bottom of the sea as well as dilapidated boats.
Finding a Shipwreck Dive Location
Shipwrecks are denoted on the main and mini-maps by a diving bell-like shape. On location, a shipwreck typically looks like a mass (either mast or other ship part) rising out of the water with a blue circle around it where you can 'dock.'
If you have the diving bell, once you dock, you should start the sequence to go under water and begin the dive.
There are three main hazards in shipwrecks, all with their own annoyances.
Running Out of Air
After you've begun your dive, a gauge will appear in the center of your screen to let you know how much air you have left. When your air is critically low, the gauge will turn red and the rest of the screen will go black and white.
To avoid to blacking out at these points, you must either use the air barrels dropped by your crew (they are the barrel-shaped images on your mini-map) or return to the diving bell. There are occasionally pockets of air elsewhere, but it is best not to rely on these since they are exceptionally rare.
Thankfully the punishment for 'death' seems to be blacking out and returning to the diving bell, so it might be worth pushing yourself for that animus fragment rather than heeding the warning.
Unarmed as you are, your best defense against sharks is to not be seen by them. Stealth, as in other aspects of the game, is important here. The game offers the underwater equivalent of bushes where you can hide, and once you are in an air barrel you become invisible to sharks.
A shark's interest gauge is very similar to any other enemy type in Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, it's a small red or yellow shape with a slowly filling gauge. Avoid getting that gauge to red and full and you should be fine.
If a shark attacks you, there are occasionally wrestling events that take place. Simply mash the buttons in the prescribed order to avoid dying.
Designed to make hiding in the bushes extra difficult are the yellow eels. These deal damage to you in much the same way as the sharks, but there is less warning (no gauges) for when they notice you and they hide in bushes.
Sometimes they are visible, and in those cases, it's best to avoid them at all costs.
For the completionist, the rewards are obvious. There are several animus fragments that are found only at shipwrecks. Also, if complete all thirteen shipwrecks, you will receive a 'Seven Deadly Sins' achievement that will go a long way towards 100% and completing all the Abstergo Challenges.
Shipwrecks also include special plans for 'elite' versions of several Jackdaw elements like 'Elite Hull Armor.'

During development of the previous Assassin's Creed game, the developers thought it might be good fun to include ship-versus-ship combat as a sort of side activity. As it turned out, this light take on naval warfare proved to be one of the most popular sections of the game, and so the fourth entry in the series was built almost entirely around the concept.
Spread across Assassin's Creed 4's seas are a handful of particularly challenging Legendary ships which not only offer up a healthy chunk of change when defeated, but are also necessary for unlocking the Devil of the Caribbean Achievement or Trophy - depending on which swashbuckling brand of console you're rocking.
Each one of these ships typically has a special attack or a very particular vulnerability to your own attacks. Understanding these unique strengths and weaknesses is key to beating each opponent and cleaning up on each battle's cash reward.
While the rewards for destroying these vessels are excellent, make sure that you're very comfortable with the basics of naval warfare before heading out on the hunt, and ensure you've taken advantage of every upgrade available to you. As well as a nicely upgraded ship of your own, many of the tactics in these battles require quick positioning and a good understanding of your own firepower - something that you won't have if you've been skirting around ship-to-ship combat or investing your reales in other priorities.
La Dama Negra - Seranilla Region
To unlock the fight with the La Dama Negra, you'll first have to take the Serranilla fort, found in the southwestern area of the map. Be aware that this particular ship is clad in near-impenetrable armour, and you'll have to direct all of your firepower at its sole weak spot, the captain's cabin at the very rear of the ship.
Try to avoid passing the sides of the ship, as the broadside cannons of this vessel are particularly powerful. If you can maintain your rear position for as much of the fight as possible, you'll find it much easier to avoid attacks, while dishing out your own comfortably.
Maintain your position at the rear of the ship and ram whenever possible. Use your chain-shot and cannons as well, both to slow the ship down and to prevent it from gaining deadly range, all the while chipping away at the enemy's hull. The idea's pretty simple here: lock it down, then knock it down.
HMS Prince - Navassa Region
'Once the ship reaches around 25% of its health, it'll begin firing its rear cannons at you.'
Once you've conquered the Navassa fort in the the southeastern quarter of the map, you'll be able to take on the HMS Prince, a ship that's heavily shrouded in fog. As well as a powerful side-cannon attack, the HMS Prince also has a devastating mortar attack - get caught adjacent to the ship, or to the front of it, and you'll have a real problem on your hands.
Move into position as quickly as possible at the start of the fight, and then use your chain-shot to slow it down, followed by your own mortar fire to chip away at its health. Just be aware that once the ship reaches around 25% of its health, it'll begin firing its rear cannons at you. If you got into the rear position right at the start of the fight, then you should have no trouble surviving through this damage until the battle ends in your favor.
El Impoluto - Dry Tortuga Region
Once you've defeated the Dry Tortuga Fort located in the northwest corner of the map, El Impoluto will appear. One of the toughest of the five legendary ships you'll face off against in Assassin's Creed 4, the crew's strategy is as simple as it is devastating: get up close at high speed and ram your ship into kindling.
Assassin's Creed Black Flag Mod Ship Mod
The trick to beating this ship is to turn the tables and take the fight to your enemy. Stay close to the El Impoluto so that you're able to ram its hull. You can make use of your non-mortar weapons to dole out some additional damage, but the bulk of your attack will come from ramming. Just make sure you're bracing your ship whenever El Impoluto makes an attack in kind.
Don't be tempted to get away from the target and bring your mortar fire into play, as playing with range is a fast way to invite disaster in this fight. All you'll achieve is to make it easier for El Impoluto to line its special attack up against you, and then get a massive burst of speed in the tank for its devastating ram attack.
HMS Fearless & Royal Sovereign - Eleuthera Region
'As soon as you've destroyed the first ship, start moving away from the area as quickly as possible.'
These two legendary ships are located in the northeastern section of the map, and they must be tackled together. It's critical that you avoid passing between the two ships, because otherwise you'll end up being caught between both vessels' side cannons. To take out your targets, simply use your mortar attack from range against a single ship, and keep moving around to maintain your distance from them.
Black Flag Brewing
Once you have one of these ships down to very low health, switch to the other target ship immediately and whittle its health down bit by bit. Once both ships are close to sinking, choose one to eliminate, and then prepare for an extremely strong counter-attack from the surviving vessel.
That attack will likely come in the form of a high-speed ram, so as soon as you've destroyed the first ship, start moving away from the area as quickly as possible, firing everything you've got at the remaining ship so that you can destroy it before it gains ground on you.
Ac4 Man O War Mod
Note that you can use this fight as a source of infinite money in Assassin's Creed 4. By defeating one ship, you'll gain the reward of 10,000 Reales. Simply allow the remaining ship to destroy you and you can restart the mission, grinding out 10,000 Reales at a time. It's a cheap trick, but certainly an effective one.
