All the ways to get Wood Tar in Skull and Bones

Compagnie ships around the Red Isle – especially in the south of that region all have a chance to give you Wood Tar. Remember to board ships whenever you can for bonus loot and greater odds of getting what you need. Similarly, pillaging Compagnie bases and settlements may earn you Wood Tar too. Using that method may take longer and put you through a tougher fight, but you’ll get lots of loot drops, plus everything you can get from the ships you destroy in the battle.

Finally, if you’re getting unlucky or don’t want to spend time on getting it through random loot, you can head to the settlement of Guérande, where the merchant there will sell you Wood Tar for 600 Silver each.
