    Hey Guys!

    Me and my friend Zucram found out that all the locations of the sharing events are fixt NOT random!

    - I found the White Whale 3 times att the same location (580.110)south west of Kingston. One more spawn point for the white wale is (640.900)

    - For the Royal Convoys there are one common location they spawn witch is outside of Petite Caverne area (901,285)

    - The Social chest can be found regularly at The Great inagua inside your bedroom (845.468) And one more regualr spawn pointy is at Abaco Island right beside the small boat (615,831)

    If the events doesn't spawn you just need to wait 1 hour or so and try again!


    To share these events with your friends, you need to play the game at the same time online to make the sharing events visible on you map for you and friend.

    This Achievement sucks we know but we finally beat the pattern and found all three locations in 1 day of gaming.

    Good Luck! Happy Hunting

    The BiodreamerIf you have uplay connection problem has I had, cut your xbox friend list to below 50 and it will start working again.

    GaminSnakeThat is so stupid you have to cut some people from your friends list for it to connect to the single player servers

    kiomxCutting friend list below 50 (I did 49) worked wonders for me, after playing most of the game with online issues. I would advise doing so early in the game rather than waiting, as the social chest is a bit challenging to find, and also the fact that the friend list issue also blocks Kenway's Fleet, which is quite enjoyable and helps build gold really fast.
    I suspect glitch is related to the fact the game tries to pull your friends' scores to compare against you, and somehow it fails to manage building leaderboards for >50 friends

    Here's a great map showing all POSSIBLE locations. Sometimes there will be none active. Sometimes there will be more than one of each.

    Also here's a great post to keep looking at because people are posting the active social events. Just look at the latest posts.

    Edit: Thanks to "A Gamer X360" for his comment that provides a info on the "Cannot connect to uPlay error" and additional info about finding the events yourself. I haven't tested this out myself because I haven't received the error but should help some people.

    AhziiadalI found a white whale in the top left corner, so this map doesn't show all possible locations, but I've found that it accurately shows most.

    Vegeto19For Royal convoys try sailing a spot on the map to check, if not there, quick travel to the nearest location and sail back to e same spot. I did this at different locations three times and I got regular convoys to show up. The fourth time I did this, at still another location, I had the royal convoy show up.

    I just noticed (after hours without an event) that theres an ONLINE section in the OPTIONS where you can deactivate social events. It was deactivated in my case (allthough I didn't deactivate them..)
    Maybe this helps someone :)

    xoURM0MoxDear god thanks for the reminder. I had already stumbled across 2 chests that didn't count because somewhere along the way these were deactivated. Cheers!
