Just to point out that the UbiConnect Community Challenge, where collectively players had to complete 1million River Raids, between Feb 16th - 23rd was reached about an hour or 2 ago! So the 'jackdaw' sail is available for a limited period. I reckon you now only need to complete 1 river raid to get it, as well as the Jackdaw Hull, which unlocked after 500,000 Raids! Unlock the Tailpiece by completing 5 raids, & the Jackdaw Figurehead by completing 10 raids. And if you do the Reda challenges, you'll no doubt be aware that the Black Flag Shields are available this week for 50 Opal.
I'll collect all weapons & armour, & it doesn't matter if it seems like a re-skin, because some of the older AC games had tons of identical outfits with just small details to tell them apart, like a different emblem embroidered on, or something like 20 different colour combinations of cape & some wacky colours for the lining. However, I don't really care too much about the other cosmetics in this game. female Eivor has been sporting a near skinhead since week 1 or 2, I don't care for the tattoos, although she has the 'Sisterhood' Tat on her back. As for the settlement decorations. I just have the large fire pits at every spot, & if I could replace that big tree in the settlement with a huge bonfire, like the one at the yule festival I'd be ok with that.
I know AC IV, isn't everyone's cuppa tea. And decking out Eivor's boat in Black Flag themed elements doesn't turn your boat into the Jackdaw. But it's a sweet little reminder of one of the AC games I really loved playing. And again, just like all the other cosmetics in the game. I didn't care how the boat looked, as none of the skins really appealed. But I'm chuffed I got this one.
So, anyways, it's just a reminder for collectors, that you only have this week to claim it on UbiConnect.
