I have found 14/24 trinkets for Peg Leg. After returning each back to Peg Leg a naval map location is revealed to me. Now the latest one has me aboard the Octavius, and I died a few times trying to escape it after I found another fragment of a map.

I would like to know just what it is to be found by seeking the treasure of Captain Kidd? What is Captain Kidd's treasure?

Shard of Eden at the end of the treasure hunt that allows Connor to deflect shots fired on him! – jumping_code Nov 8 '12 at 17:46
@danRhul why not post an answer? Comments are meant for clarification of the question. – ヴァイシャリ Nov 8 '12 at 17:47
I don't really have the time. Feel free to pinch it though (genuinely) – jumping_code Nov 8 '12 at 17:48

You will receive a "Shard of Eden" that is a permanent passive bonus that gives you a chance to deflect bullets that are fired at you.

Based on personal experience, it seems to deflect around about 1/3 of the bullets that would normally hit you.

Interestingly enough, it even works when you're controlling Desmond (through unexplained video game magic).

It's a nice bonus, but not something that's game changing unless you're being killed by guns a lot.

Based on the @danRhul comment:

I havent done it myself so I can't say if it's true.

EDIT: Now I've done it, and yes it is true. You get an item that makes you dodge bullets.

I haven't done it yet either but I've heard this is the case. – Shinrai Nov 8 '12 at 20:19
Now edit your answer and tell us whether all that pain was worth it. Kidding, glad you got it mate. :-) I started doing the main mission. This one can wait. +1'd it when you posted. – ヴァイシャリ Nov 9 '12 at 16:04
It's not a pain. But the maps in the general stores. Find those collectibles, then do the 5 missions related. Did the missions part in under an hour. – Fredy31 Nov 9 '12 at 16:34

You also get Captain Kidd's "robes", which turn your aboriginal assassin into a Johnny Depp-like pirate captain.
