I am working on upgrading the Adrestia and need large quantities of wood to do so.

What methods can I employ to yield the largest quantity of wood in the shortest amount of time?

I have been cleaving ships to earn wood, and buying it from blacksmiths where possible.


The best method and quickest method in the game:

  • Travelling between blacksmiths and buying olive wood

When travelling between backsmiths they will not always stock up, however, you can expect about 4 out of 5 to stock it and you'll generally get 100+ stock

best alternative method:

  • Raid and battle boats

Not as efficient as trading.

Other ways to obtain olive wood:

  • Complete contracts with a chance of getting olive wood

  • Pillage nation chests with a chance of getting olive wood

Personally, when I was trading I would simply continue as normal completing quests and any blacksmith that I encountered or was "only slightly" out of the way would be where I bought my olive wood, although I'm guessing you recently hit level 25 which is why this is now your focus.

    Worth mentioning that looting the war supplies in forts yields wood also. So make sure to loot before you burn them. – David Yell May 9 '20 at 11:22
