Quickest Path to Free Exp?

Heyas!

 

Trying to bank up free exp, and wondering if it's just a given that one will spend doubloons on it.  I purchased the October and Cesar as my first premium ships; I had heard that one of the uses of a premium is to generate free experience for the pool to use elsewhere.  Just now figuring out now that it takes gold to do the conversion...  :Smile-_tongue:

 

I'd guess that using signal and camo bonuses works, as does regular combat, of course.  Anything that I'm missing?

 

Thanks!

Wear all the free XP flags you can. Play well. Play a lot. Spend lots of money.

What Lert said and use camo if u have it. For the record, a certain portion of Free XP is gained each match without having to convert.

We use doubloons to fast track it to convert XP to FXP. If you have any auroboros flags they help a great deal.

Giulio Cesare without flags on a co-op game, say 75K damage, 2 kills, 4 citadels and part of a cap, 66 Free Exp. Do that 12,000 times for a Missouri. 

Of course flags and camo can boost this enormously, but you have to be dedicated. (seriously, don't do that!)

 

I used a lot of flags and I played a lot, and took advantage of cheap xp conversion for a few random bucks here and there. 

 

a lot of the Campaigns offer bunches of free Exp, and as you grind them it sort of snowballs.

Missouri with flags

 

Kind of pointless advice for someone who has 500 games...isn't it?

Just an advice for the future :) He can buy dubloons and convert them to get the Mo.

That would require him to have 750k elited XP, which would mean a lot of games on ships that don't research anything, so a lot of games not progressing his own account and trees.

If they sell the Anshan in the future, it has a built in 100% free exp boost in the perm camo and with the new Pan Asian line of DDs, can be used as a captain trainer.  Fun tier 6 DD, Russian made, with decent torps.

The Papa papa flag is your friend - This coupled w/ a Tirpitz w/ the 100% FXP bonus cammo (or a Premium ship like the Missouri) would be an acceleration strategy w/o necessarily costing doubloons for FXP conversion.

I use my Mo for grinding free exp; 3000-4000 free exp a game.. Yeah if people want to grind free exp they won't progress a lot. It's that or just progress in the lines

Use the more signals and camo option on your containers; load your ships (particularly your premiums) up with free xp enhancing camo and signals; play missions and campaigns that provide free xp, signals, and camo (with a free xp bonus); above all else, get the Missouri when you are able.

Ironically, the ideal ship for grinding to the Missouri would have been... you guessed it, the Missouri!

If you do spend actual money on the game, the best "bang for the buck" I've seen so far was found in last year's Christmas containers. Hopefully, they will do the same thing again this year.

Anshan (with special premium camo) + Papa Papa flags = 533% bonus to free XP earned.

The reality is, Free XP is a hard grind. I would buy whatever package sells the papa flags.....but the problem with that is, once you crack your wallet....it's easier to do it again....and again. I am at the point now where I can barely stomach playing the game without maximizing great camos and tons of flags.....the down side of that is I could take a vacation in the Keys for a week with I have spent on this game.....

I got in in May, while the Bismarck thing was going on, earned the Bismarck while grinding the USN BB line to Iowa. I'm sure I didn't have over 500 games by that point. Not enough to get the Missouri yet, but definitely a start. I got in on an invite for the Texas and a lot of signal flags and of course 80K Free XP, so yeah, went for it.

Joining a clan and playing in clan battles is another way to increase the free xp earned. Clan battles seem to earn quite a bit more credits, xp, free xp, and commander xp than random battles... even when you lose... so you might want to give that a try.

Also, as previously mentioned, the clan's buildings will provide additional bonuses.

I’ve heard rumors about a sale for this ship and others for Black Friday...

I have found the best bang for the buck is to purchase a premium account.Sure beats spending ridiculous amounts of money to convert premium XP to something that is actually usable. Then on occasion you can get some doubloons to fast track if you want.
