Was at 660k free xp earlier today before clan wars and apparently got a surprising 100k free xp from a mission somewhere which landed the 750k needed for the Missouri.  Not sure how many people did the grind 100% without converting a single point and how they felt when they reached it, but I can tell you the "fun" factor of setting that goal and crossing that finish line is one of the highest I've experienced in the game.  If I had to guess, it took about 4 months.  Clan wars really helped accelerate the last 100-200k.

 

This is something I should have focused on a long time ago.  The best advice I can give from an efficiency standpoint is don't do what I did.  Get that Missouri first and use it to farm credits / free xp at a much faster rate to fuel spending on the rest of your ships.  For the past two years I've been in a constant state of being broke on credits / free xp because I level wide (multiple ship lines at once).

 

Off to play with the new toy...

 Welcome to the USS Missouri club. I'm one of those who earned the Show Me the Money the hard way without converting any ship exp and not a single piece of gold spent. It is a wonderful felling of accomplishment when you finally achieve that 750,000 Free Exp. I've had mine since March and just last week Captain Seagul finally reached Elite statues. 

Now go out there and liberate some citadels while clearing the way with your radar.

Congrats however you earned it. Free Xp or converted is time into the game, and that's not nothing!

Enjoy the best ride in the game!

 What you did probably feels very good indeed and I'm a bit jelly tbh. You see, it's the other side of the coin for me.. really disappointed with how my free XP expenditure goes. I don't have a goal to aim for, I can only hope.

Too bad it doesn't print WTR, since average performance is so high.

It really helps to mount the Free XP bonus flags on your clan battles ships.

I've seen the pic and you looking nothing like a giant dragon on a pile of gold.

Besides this gives me the perfect opportunity to show this.

How much free XP flags and camo did it take?

 

Wish I could tell you.  I used everything I could find during that 200% weekend that also had a repeatable free xp bonus (like 2-3 months ago).  I made something sick like 400k+ free xp over that weekend but much of it went to unlocking the Hak so I have no idea.

What mission rewards 100k free exp?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!

 

I ~think~ it's a clan wars only mission.  Not sure if you have to be Typhoon league or not.  I'm just a few battles shy of the Stalingrad flag (win 30 battles in Typhoon league) so a number of different quest rewards got completed (since when you win a match in a certain level, all ranks below it also get credit toward their own achievements as if you were in that level).  Maybe someone reading this knows or at least knows where to go to find out.

Here I come Missouri, just another 600k or something. Hahah..2 year of playing, contanstly broke, have to buy credits and sell modules and etc etc, finish all t10 line except cv, which i will never level up cause not my thing. Hope they postpone the pan asian dd long enough, or i just gona use fxp to level up again to t10 .

 

Playing 2 years, only manage 2.5million credits and 5 doubloon.haha.:cap_haloween:

 

Good to know missouri print credits, but as i encounter them so much, i dont seem it pretty dangerous. Mostly i see them reverse and blaze in endless fire.

However you obtain it, it is worth getting, it's a good ship in game, it prints credits and for historical reference it feels good to have it in port.

Congratulations!  I did it too - still haven't brought the ship out of coop, although someday - but it took something like 9 months.

 

I have to imagine that if you are playing clan wars, and winning, the potential to print free xp (or commander xp, if that is what you are after) is considerable.  2500 base for a win is just filthy; now combine that with the mission you mentioned...
