Sharing Is Caring Trophy
Sharing Is Caring
Share each type of discovery with friends once.
This trophy is extremely luck based, it can be one of your first trophies or you'll have to put tremendous amounts of time towards it.
There are three types of discovery: Chest, Royal Convoy and White Whale (credit to an unknown author for these images).
To get this trophy you must be logged in to PSN, as well as Uplay and connected to Ubisoft's servers. You can tell if you're all connected by having a white "WiFi signal" icon in the bottom left of the screen.
When you discover events, a notification pops up saying it has shared the location with friends. This is done automatically and you don't have to interact with the event, that means you don't have to kill, plunder or loot any of them.
The spawn locations are set (see map below) but the places where they respawn are apparently random. You can increase your chances of finding one by having someone on your friends list playing the game, however some people have been able to get the trophy without friends playing too. You can find people here.
Please note that the discoveries don't spawn on the same people for everyone, there are different sets running in different servers. For example, when you are checking places where other people successfully found something but there is nothing there for you. It might mean you are on a different server/set.
There's no way of knowing which server you're logged on IMO. So my best guess is:
1. Head over to the location of a social discovery.
2. If you don't find the said finding, exit single player (SP) and log-in to multi player (MP).
3. Exit MP and log-in back to SP.
4. Rinse repeat step 1, 2 and 3.
Also worth pointing out is if you find a social discovery, then do not leave that server because you're more likely to find other social discoveries while logged in to that server (credit to jp.guihard.net for the map):
