Sharing Is Caring Achievement

  • Sharing Is Caring

     

    10

    Share each type of discovery with friends once.

    There are three types of social discovery that can be shared with friends. As long as you are playing online, the sharing will happen automatically. There are social chests found on land, and white whales and royal convoys that are found at sea. The one item that makes this challenging is that they are located randomly and change daily. However, they also are quite common and as long as you actively investigate everything you see around you it should not be an issue.

    You do not need to activate a Uplay passport for this achievement, but you will need to be connected to Xbox Live.

  • I believe you need to have a Uplay account as well as the companion app. Once you find a social event, which comes up blue on you map, go to the initiates tab on the companion app to share with your Uplay friends. Examples of these social events are chests, naval convoys and white whale hunts. Feel free to add me to your Uplay friends list, BrettlyX is my user name
  • No it automatically shares these events with people on your Xbox friend list so as long as you see all 4 and are on live it'll automatically share them you don't need the companion app for this.
  • You mean I must have friends on xbox or Uplay for events to show up?
  • Fuck this, It's pure luck based.
  • Do your friends also have to be online at the same time you make these discoveries? Or does that even matter?
  • Hey guys, could you add me please? My account is Davfigo, I think :P Just for the achievement :)
  • you do not need friends on ubisoft,the game automatically shares your discoveries.and i think its the social chest,royal convoy and the white whale and should be coloured blue on your map.
  • @Bluetoon: Thanks for the clarification man :3 I managed to find 2 of the 3 requirements just by aimless wandering and the first for me was finding the social chest which I managed to do twice x3
  • I believe to make these events more common you need to have more friends playing the game. Really annoying cos it's one of 3 left that I need. If anyone wants help with that feel free to add my gamertag - BiggumsBlud
  • It may be sheer coincidence, but i just accepted 3 friend requests, and within in minutes of searching i get onto abaco island and find a social chest. Baring in mind before i had zero luck for hours of searching!
  • Ok yep just got royal convoy too. Add friends who play this game people! Makes this cheevo so much easier
  • Not sure if it's just me, but I've had no luck finding the social events. I've almost completely scoured the map too. I'm in my last area, finishing up the islands. I'm pretty sure my Uplay Passport I active since I'm receiving messages abut the community challenge thing. So I'm guessing I've just had shitty luck for this achievement. If anyone else wants to add me for the achievement, the gamertag's Kato53. Hopefully that helps me out.

  • I was sure I need to find that White Wale, the Chest and the Royal Convoy. Well, I found only the RC and the achievement has popped just now while I was collecting Animus Fragments on one of those tiny islands.
  • still trying to get this ach myself, does anyone know if you can find these things on the new DLC? add me plz ConMan739
  • This ach if royal f****** bullshit. complete with all ach and still no chests
  • Well, I unlocked this cheevo yesterday. What I did? I don't know for sure. I was actually replaying memories to obtain the 100% synch achievement. While sailing during a mission I got a message saying that a White Wale has been located on my map and at the same time the achievement popped. I really don't remember finding any Royal Chest or whatever. All I did for sure is a Royal Convoy and that Wale thing. They were all blue colour icons on the map. Active for 5 hours I guess. You actually do not have to complete these quests. Just wait until they appear on your map. Though, for completing them you are given a pair of swords I guess (it's still unavailable for me).
  • The only thing I still need is the chest. I just can't seem to find it. It's not popping up for me yet. So, please add me. GT: ReactedThunder3

  • This achievement is broken by the way a patch will be coming out to fix the issue
  • yeah same here guye i been trying get this man its a bitch ive found discovery chest but unsure how to share
  • Just to let people know a costumer support agent responded to a question I asked on the Ubisoft support page. She said that the developers saw the initial social event spawn rate made it to easy so they altered the spawn frequency to appear much less often. In addition she said they were considering making them spawn more often again as currently it is very difficult.
  • Add me for this achievement , GT: Thedaywalker888

  • Hey guys, I'm reading a lot that finding the social chest on the one might be glitched. Can anyone confirm what they look like? I've found 2 golden coloured chests (they show up gold on the mini map) while searching for all other chests, one of which was for sure on the Florida map area, but if they are the social chests then they didn't count towards the share aspect even though I have been connected to Live and Ubisoft. I am playing on the Xbox One, so maybe the issue is with the One version of the game? Just fishing for thoughts, thanks!
  • Golden chests are unlock able content chests that has things like weapons and outfits. I think it is pre-order bonus or uplay rewards. Anyway, social chests appear in blue color on mini-map. I have spent over 60 hours playing and yet found one social chest. Hope this helps
  • Looking for some friends to do this. Add me, online daily. GT=thmrts

  • After 147 hours of play I have my first social chest (hope it doesn't take that long to find the next 2). It's at 484,486 for the next hour and 50 minutes (Xbox One). It's on the left of the ledge as you dive off the ledge to exit the location.

  • Please add me guys.. still can't get this achievement.. GT: Buhzin
  • If anyone could add me to help with this that'd be awesome. Gamertag: BustinCliff (Xbox One)
  • Could really use the help, all I've found is a white whale XBOX: Outlander212
  • I've been struggling with this my self and have been searching other forums to see if there were any different tips out there. One post one trueachievements stated that they contacted Ubisoft about the difficulty of finding these events and SUPPOSEDLY the AC4 developers thought that these events were too common upon the initial release of the game and have now made them very rare. This could explain why recently everyone is having trouble finding any of these events.
  • I submitted a ticket to support.ubi.com. Their response is the developers thought the Social Events were too common, so they reduced the spawns. They are now looking into it. I hope enough people complain...
  • Whoever thought this was a good idea is a laughing joking numb-nut. Once Ubisoft fixes their uplay problems I am so given them a piece of my mind. Apparently it helps increase the chances of these appearing if the more people on your friends list have the game. Anything to help deal with this nightmare of a lottery so Gt: behellmorph I have the 360 version if it makes any difference.
  • heyyyy everyone can u guys please add me if u find royal convoys please and social chests and whale
  • gt is echoelitemaster

  • well this is ridiculous. if having more friends helps with this then add me on 360. GT is TheSolitary 133.
  • I Have an icon of a blue royal convoy but when I reach the location there are no ships there. Seems like it could be a bug or glitch. Since it appered two days ago however I have not seen any other blue icons anywhere. Does anyone know how to get rid of the bugged convoy or maybe if you add me as a friend it will be there for you all and then solve my problem at the same time.

  • Just found a white whale - 9 hours left on XBOX ONE. Co-ordinates 216, 498 9 hours left My time zone is: Eastern Time Zone (UTC-05:00) Also of note, I needed 3 Royal convoys and managed to find one a few days ago (around Tulum) unfortunately I failed to capture it but awesomely enough, the royal convoy was still there, so I purposefully failed capturing that one and again, and it was still there! Each time it came back it counted as a new share event - maybe this works for you too?

Ive sailed the whole map 5 times today comparing with a map of peoples finds and plotting specific routes. Restarting my xbox every time I do an efficient loop. What an incr edible waste of time. Even more incredulous that none of my many friends have also failed to make a find.

  • anyone looking for a social chest on 360, I found one at (770,98), and its good for another hour
  • Ok I'm finished (all 9) so wont be online again. Anyone trying this I advise the following as I did this in 4 days for all 9 (plus an extra 5 whales and 2 convoys). 1) Use the map in the forum thread its great for convoys and whales. Both show up at a distance (you have to get close to convoys but the spyglass lets you ID them easily they contain 10k plus for social convoys) 2) At the time of this post there seem to be 3 events at a time changing every 8hrs or so. Sweep the map twice a day 10hrs apart and you should find 4-5 easily every day. 3) Chests are a nuisance. You have to practically stand on them to register them. The map is good for most of these (go to exact coordinates and you HAVE to get off the ship). However the smuggler den coordinates are off so explore the entire
  • I finally found the white whale after sailing around aimlessly for about an hour after I had 100% the game. I hope everyone else is as lucky as I was!

  • For anyone still trying to get a chest, there are a couple of things I wasn't aware of when I started looking. The only thing white normal chests have to do with light blue social chests is that sometimes they are found near each other. I looted nearly all the chests in the game thinking one would turn blue as I approached it with no luck.
  • Also, try the bedroom of your manor, it has shown to hold a chest more often for some people. The first time I went in there to look I found one. Hope this helps!
  • GT: RBlakely Wasn't sure what this achievement was until recently. Have put about 50 hours into this game and have scrubbed almost every square inch of the map naturally just to collect everything and haven't found any of the events for this so far.

  • #355. Most events are just random generated and disappear after a couple of hours. You need 3 shares: *A sea animal (a shark, a whale, etc) *A convoy of ships *A 'social' treasure chest. This have about 1000 to 2000 credits worth.
  • Oh, you DON'T need to capture a whale, or destroy a convoy, or open a social treasure chest.
  • GT: Pigsehh Have been playing almost constantly for 3 days trying to figure out what this meant. Any help will be appreciated.
  • Royal convoy at 538,573. White whale at 674,315. Less than two hours left on each. I be found a ton of white whales and royal convoys as well as one chest but the only thing that's shared is the chest, why wont whales and convoys share for me on Xbox one? I had no issue with this achievement on the 360. Gamertag: The blackmarvel
  • Looking for all 3 events, Add me pls Jephcote83
  • I need a chest. Pls add me: MarkusT92
  • Xbox one social convoy @ 434,684 add me GRREEEENMACHINE. I'm looking for the Chest.
  • Ok so I have a new method to get this Achievement. I just got all 3 shares in about 1 hour. The first thing is that there is only one AC4 server that offers Social Events. So to find out if you are on the server that has the events you must go to this map http://www.jp.guihard.net/IMG/jpg/map-social-events.jpg and find a spot that has a lot of white whale sightings. I used (877,654) and the other ones south. If you don't see a white whale then quit the game from the Xbox one Dashboard. YOU MUST see the connecting to server notification in order for this to work. Now check for the whale again. This is the hard part. because there is only one server. you may have to try a lot of times. i had to try 5. Once you know you are on the sever with the events they are easy to find with the map.

  • Royal Convoy at 240,414, SE of the Black Trench. Around 6 hours left to collect. Yes and no, the whales and convoys will appear when you sail near them. The chests will appear when you're practically on top of them. You have to explore towns and islands to find them. Also, I don't know if this has been mentioned, but it seems you have to loot/kill the targets for them to show up on your friends' maps.
