So I have 180k exp on my Roon and 68k in free exp Should I spend most of it to get the Hindenburg? Or should I just grind the remaining 60k.

Roon is wonderful, why would you skip it?

(Seriously, I love mine, I'm about 8K from Hindenburg, and I'm looking forward to those last few battles until I unlock her.  Then, I'm going to keep the Roon anyway.)

Personally would save the freeXP to unlock modules on the Hinden..rather than freeXP the last of the Roon unless you've come to hate playing the Roon,

i thought about the same when nearing the end of the grind on the Pensi..but in the end ended up enjoying  the last 20k on the pensa...well at least more than the first 20k..but i would understand if people wanted out of that citadel machine (both giving and receiving!)

But as a general rule...i save FreeXP for moduies..so i dont have to play new ships stock.

I never free xp to a ship unless I also have the free xp to get the most important modules as well. Keep grinding, shouldn't take long. Hindy is worth the wait.

Sadly some do..but youre right about Hindy...

but again...personally save Free XP to unlock modules...

Big question is...do you not like the Roon?

There is some times ya just want to get there....I love my Hindy, it is a great ship, and if it is your first tier 10, sounds like a great plan... you can always earn more free exp in the future and that 9 to 10 grind is long, game is to enjoy and I have to say the Hindy is one one the best tier 10 ships

If you enjoy Roon, the grind will go by pretty quickly.

I'm with the others here, hold onto your free xp for some other future use, the Roon was a fine ship to play through.

I was actually a little bit sad when I finished my grind to the Hindy.  Love the Roon, and knew once I got the Hindy I would probably not be playing it as much.  And that is exactly what is happening, though I don't regret it... much.  Trying to grind that captain now to 19 pts, though the Roon's captain is almost as close.

The Roon is my favorite ship so far. I am right there with you, about 40,000 EXP left until I unlock the Hindi myself. I'm going to keep pushing even though I have the free XP to unlock right now, my captain is level 18 and getting close to that 19 mark.

I zeroed my Free XP for Missouri, but am back up to 30k.  Now I'm saving for Nelson.

I wouldn't use Free XP to finish a ship unless it was just horribad.  My recommendation is to save it for a Free XP premium, or to upgrade a stock ship.

Hey

I have the Roon and love playing it so I would not use XP to get it.  Keep in mind there substantial credit hit you will take also.  That being said:  I have thought about using XP to go past the German DD T22, which I don't like.

I made the mistake of XPing into the Roon and with nothing left to upgrade modules, was relegated to a stock ship for an unbearable amount of time.  I really hated the Roon at that time, but now that I have hulls and guns where they need to be, love the Roon. I'm about 5mil from the Hindenburg and I'm doing as others said....just grind out and use XP for improvements.  I did drop a little XP to get my Roon capt to 19pts.......my first one.

I always use my free XP on the upgrades, never to get the ship.

The difference between a stock ship and an upgraded one can be huge!

Roon's a good ship. I had fun grinding through her, even with the massive DD torp spams at high tier. However, once I got Hindenberg I never played Roon again.

Do what you want. I personally free xp'd pass the roon with 70k xp. While I found the Roon ok, I love the Hindenburg much more.

Indeed, Roon is an absolute joy to play.  I would heartily recommend continuing the grind!

Roon is a solid ship ... BUT ...

 

I too had troubles with the Roon simply because I found her boring. Her rate of fire and her ability to bait long range fire is amazing. Roon's problem is she is best at either running away or long range shelling, but she suffers when it comes to brawling or charging a target due to having only a single forward facing turret and only four torpedoes to a side, compared to the six on Hipper/Eugen and the eight on Hindenburg. So I myself did indeed free XP past her after having played her a while simply because I was just bored. Playing Roon felt more like I was playing a russian long range spammer than the brawling monsters that Hipper and Hindy can be due to their armor layout, torpedoes, and significantly better AP penetration up close.

 

All that being said, whether you free XP or not, Hindy is absolutely a worthy prize. She is by far my favorite ship in the game, and that's saying something from someone who has spent most of his WoWS career being a battleship main. Advice: Grab CE on her captain, but use the propulsion mod + the 40% rudder shift mod on her rather than the concealment mod. Makes that ship MUCH more agile than most people think she can be.

Some Tier 10s do have modules. I got aggravated the other day when I got Grozovoi only to discover I needed to use Free XP to go from 8 km to 10 km torps. I wasn't going to play that DD with 8 km torps. 

However, Hindenburg doesn't require any modules.

I didn't enjoy any of the German cruisers until I got the Hipper.  Enjoyed my time in that boat tremendously.  Enjoying the Roon even more now.  Will sell it with a heavy heart but the Hindy is worth the grind.

Hey

I liked the German line except Karl (which was OK, somewhat) and the Yorck (it needs some love but has good potential).  Hipper/Prinz Eugen needs a slight ROF buff but generally pretty decent, Roon is an absolute blast to play, I love this ship.  I don't have Hindy yet but it sounds very good.  In general. I like the German cruiser line, her AP later is very strong.
