So I am very early. Just got the Jackdaw. Did the island to upgrade holster. And that is where I have been at for the last hour. Spent the last hour trying to kill a fucking whale, and take out a royal convoy. I can't do either. Am I not supposed to be able to do these things now? Do I have to wait to progress to get upgrades that make it easier? Or I am just super bad at this game? I started getting very frustrated after so many failed attempts and just sailed to Nassau. Got to it and quit.
Also is most of this game more like a pure pirate game? Will I spend a lot of time doing things with the ship, fighting and traveling to islands. Exploring. Or is this still 100% pure Asscreed. I never got to the ship stuff in III because it just wore on me. That game made me so angry I couldn't play it. Plus it got super boring to me. It started really good. I loved the first 10-12 hours. But then it was just terrible chase mission after terrible chase mission. I am hoping this game isn't going to be like that.
