  • I have no idea how it works. I already have captured 14 barbarian naval units, and still no achievement... :-( Commented Mar 1, 2014 at 14:34
  • Okay - now I have 20 barb units. No achievement. Grrr... Anyone? Commented Mar 1, 2014 at 15:27

When you get near a barbarian naval unit with your own unit the special ability works. If you are lucky then the barbarian naval unit is converted. If not nothing changes you can attack.
