Makes sense! Thank you very much for the tip. I'll go back to the Homestead to do some buyin' and sellin' and then it'll be on to the Boston Tea Party! :)

I haven't looked at the achievements yet. I usually play through once just to experience the game, but then I always do a second playthrough with certain achievements in mind.

they get unlocked within the main plot a few times. play more story and they should join in.

yeah. i like my achievements and in the previous games it was too hard to get most every achieve. this one im not planning on getting most of them.

That's better then previously AC games though, all feathers would do is grant you an achievement.

I'm having a problem with one of my Assassin recruits... I'm pretty sure I've liberated all of his district (South Boston) and when I go see him at his tavern, there are no more conversations to be had with him (which usually means you're done with all the Liberation missions) and yet he won't show up on the recruits contract screen when I want to send them away to train them. Any idea why this is happening?

well, you needed them for 2 different achievements in AC2, and one in AssBro, so that was pretty cool.

OP says:
I don't recall the feathers ever giving you something significant, though.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 9, 2012 9:21:36 AM PST
Yeah all the feathers do is give you an Native American outfit. Nothing else. I was disappointed.

i have a hard time getting complete sets. many pages are easy to see and slow down on the straights so i can get em.
then a couple are white on a white sky and twist all back and forth along the edges and tops of buildings and i never can get em in time.

so is that the only purpose of feathers now? i stopped bothering for them for now cause they seemed pointless.

I'm working on getting all of the Almanac pages now. It sucks. I dont think they give you enough time to catch up to them before they vanish.
Collected all the Feathers last night. Got a new outfit for doing it. Any idea what you have to do to get the Assassin outfit that Achilles has you retrieve from that cave?

OP says:
Ah, good point; I got tunnel vision with bear pelts and was hoarding pelts from Myriam for crafting purposes, lol.

EDIT: One other thing: I'm guessing that the stores you can send a convoy to increase as you progress in the story? Right now, I just have Hancock's and Ellen's in Boston.

you do need to play more to keep unlocking new people to meet and new missions for the people you know.

waxc3 says:
if you have the hunting girl you can buy beaver pelts for like 100 and sell them for nearly 600. (some huge profit like that).

i stood by the book several times and bought stuff, then sold it on the convoy. once it returned i did it again and again.
made 100,000 or so pretty fast.

fully upgrading the boat requires a crazy amount of money!

Really wish they had redesigned the crafting interface - far from smooth or intuitive, IMO.

And I've only had one artisan on the homestead for a long time. Am I missing something, or do I just have to advance the storyline to get more? I'm only just now getting to New York.

OP says:
I just don't have enough pelts in reserve to write off the loss of a convoy at the moment. It'll probably be better later in the game.

waxc3 says:
doesnt require time. but each artisan that moves out to your area will have frontier missions. once you do a few of those (or maybe only one for some people) they will upgrade.
it will then say that this artisan can now do whatever skill, or hunt for more animals, or will carry these crafting items now.

weapons and the expensive items seem to all require two different artisans.

theres a few treasure chests behind houses or in forts will award you with like 10 to 15 recipes each time you find em.

OP says:
The artisans are specialists; Lance (the first one) does a lot of stuff with wood. The recipes globe in the crafting tab gives you a list containing info for every craftable item you know how to make (includes info on what artisans and levels are needed, and what materials are used). I believe Lance can make you a couple new convoys right off the bat, as long as you have the money and materials for it. All crafting is instant.

StriderNeo15 says:
You need specific artisans for different recipes, sometimes 2 different ones, maybe even 3, but I haven't gotten that far yet.

Kirksplosion says:
I didn't know you could craft a new wagon. Wonder if I'm missing the recipe for it. Does each artisan specialize in something, or can they all make anything, just requires time (like the assassin recruits)?

waxc3 says:
yep i get like 23,000 everytime my convoy returns. i send em out nonstop! :)
i dont bother defending them. if i lose one i just write it off and craft a new wagon. new wagons cost nearly nothing at all.

i never got a weapon from a chest. only seen recipes for them.
best i can tell, you will be well into the new york missions by the time you can have enough artisans to make those things.

OP says:
Well, pelts seem to be a big money maker for convoys. A perfect bear pelt goes for 888 (with 0% tax) to Hancock's store, and if you max convoy capacity, you can fit 8 of those on.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 9, 2012 6:51:25 AM PST
OP says:
I've had to defend 3 convoys so far myself (no recruits yet), which basically amounts to you and 8 guards versus 15 redcoats (I guess it's supposed to be an elimination race).

The game seems to be lack a bit in explanations; I struggled through The Chase before I realized upon spawning on the pier at Homestead that there was a book next to the Harbormaster where you could buy ship upgrades, lol.

I really need to continue with the story, still at the very beginning of Sequence 6, spent the last 2 days messing around in the frontier and homestead.
