The grind was real

I have just completed what I believe to be the longest grind there is in WoWS...to unlock and purchase the USN Missouri without converting any elite XP into Free XP.  I started saving Free XP the day she was announced and actually completed the grind ahead of schedule due to the help of a 50K Free XP 2nd Anniversary Supercontainer, and 20K Free XP from Yamamoto campaign tasks and the new Earn Oil mission.

 

So, now what do I obsess over next???

The Nelson ;)   I got the Missouri a while back, she's pretty good.  Did it without conversion either.  Same for the Nelson.  During the anniversary weekend I earned over 300k free exp.  It was glorious.

I get to 10-20k free XP and some sale comes up for a tech tree ship and I'm always chronically short on silver... so I'll never get there unless I convert with gold and there are other things to get first. Even with the 1:35 discount, I would need over 29k gold to convert all my XP to Free XP.

I still have 100k to go.

If you haven't looked at the Yamamoto campaign, I highly recommend it.  Each mission has a task with a 5K Free XP reward....the 300 plane task was annoying (300 planes in T8-T10 ships, and anything you play with decent AA means CVs ignore you like the plague...I did get lucky with 2 battles in my AA NC against T6 and T7 CVs that seemed quite inexperienced) but the others weren't bad (50 defended ribbons in DD or CA/CL, 40 citadels in CA/CL, 400K damage to BBs).  Just keep plodding, you'll get there.

Ironically haven't played her yet. lol

 

Originally I was uninterested in the Nelson after the reviews but I played him (can't call a ship named Nelson "her") on the corgi account and had fun. All the dragon flags helped me get that XP real quick.

Nice, I'm only 50k away from the Nelson myself. 

Same, but, I have converted some XP from my premiums, so I'm not grinding so hard as the OP.
