I am a few thousand short of 750k. Know it affords Mushashi, but seeing how it's a downscaled Yamato with a bit less sigma, not sure I want to buy it.

Couple players said to buy Nelson, but I am working enough ship lines that premium won't see much action.

Just hoard for buying upgrades on T8-19 ships as I acquire them?

That's typically what I do, but these days I'm also unwilling to put up with ships I don't like (looking at you, pre-buffed Hipper!).

Also, there's the new USN CL line coming, and I will be getting that T10 on the first day. Plus, I have no desire to get another premium BB.

Isn't the new Tier 9 Prem USSR Cruiser Kronshtadt rumored to be a free XP ship coming soon?

Also, the Musashi is a great credit earner (not as good as MO I know!) but I am averaging about 20-25k more damage per game in it than my MO.  While the AA, secondaries and sigma may be off the Yamato a bit, you also face Tier 7's once in a while, fun BB IMO, though I'm not a good BB player.

I'd say it depends on if you plan on getting the Yammy. If so, then how far along are you on the HSF collection? If you have a ways to go and have activated the collection, then I'd say get the Musashi because you can then get 10 additional containers. Those missions are available until 0.7.5 (so 4 weeks or so). That way you get a perm camo for the Yammy saving you 5000 doubloons (ok, it's slightly worse than the purchased camo for earning XP, but has the same economic bonuses). 

Remember the HSF boat sale ends on 9/30/2018 so I'm guessing the collection will also end sometime around then, so you can likely still finish the collection, but getting the portraits seems to be hit/miss on daily containers, so getting an additional 20 portraits via containers may be something you want to do instead of hoping you can finish in the next 5 months. 

Also remember this coming weekend is +200%xp first mission bonus, so stack your special flags and camos to maximize your free XP earning . If you have good games and stack Frosted Fir/Type 59/Pi/etc with Red Dragon, Ouroboros, Hydra, Equal speed Charlie London and Papa Papa, you'll be shocked at how fast you can actually earn freeXP when you put your mind to it

The only actual downside to Musashi is that the average performance is so high, even with more than 60% win rate and more than 100k avg damage, you still get a green rating...

 

Whoever kept saying Musasushi sucks, are just like the people saying Asashio's good, both are idiots.

 

My Sad face when:

 

Musashi   Musashi  9 Japan 39 61.54% 1 141 99 177 1.05 0.31 Details

 

 

1100 rating...

Musashi will make more credits and xp than Yamato and every other premium with the exception of Missouri. You can also put any CC you want in her without penalty. Her guns aren’t as accurate, but they are no less accurate than any other Jap BB. Her spotter plane also has more uptime and less cooldoen than Yamato. Her AA is her weakness. 

Except for AA (which Yamato’s is that great anyway) the performance difference is marginal at best between the two. Musashi will be profitable while you’ll have to spend 5000 gold on Yamato to make so.

I've never saved up that much free XP.  I've just been using mine as needed/wanted to unlock modules and may buy the Musashi or whatever is there at the time when I stockpile enough.  I think I'm around 400k right now.

I haven't been buying HSF boats (unlocked Graf Spee when mission was available, no need of 2 for example) and if you looked at my ship stats, you'd already know I have Yamato--and yes, bought her camo because enjoyed those monster MB. Now if it's a game of chance w/ containers, sure, I'll take whatever rngesus gives.

More or less getting over my mental exhaustion from a diet change, so got catching up to do on my 3 college classes. Not expecting to grind much FXP--and this would be the 4th time I had an opportunity to grind lots of it.

Not if your Yamato has the premium camo.

I'm very nervous that Musashi will be removed from tech tree very soon just like Missouri in 0.7.2. I currently have 380k of Free XP, and I'm so desperate to get the Musashi. It takes a while to grind Free XP to reach 750k. I don't know will Musashi be staying in tech tree forever or not.

Maybe true as I didn't really look into it. 5000 gold for the camo on a ship I intend to play alot was the better option for me than getting Musashi.

Nelson is unique.  I would grab it immediately.  Mushi is a watered-down Yami.  Nelson doesn't have an equal in the UK tree.

Both ships are good, Nelson is of course the less expensive option, but I really enjoy it, Musashi is great, even meh games gets good credit returns - and strong captain trainer- either choice is good, but in my book Nelson is less risk ( quality ship 1/2 the free exp).

I just unlocked the Nelson with free XP a couple of weeks ago and have had a blast taking into matches. Makes good coin in matches, even co-op or a bad random loss, and as with any premium ship, it is nice to have to train up those UK captains.

I just used a chunk of mine to gather all the USN cruisers from Cleveland to Baltimore, which I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy playing more than either Nelson or Musashi. Plus I'll get some new cruisers after the split.

That can and does face tier 7.  Regardless of the nerfs the guns are still very much tier 10. Musashi is a brutal thug of a ship totally worth it.

I have about 2,400,000 FXP (and 2 mil Commander XP) that I'm saving for Captain training when the USN Cruiser split finally gets here. Hell, as much as WG's been dragging their feet, I might have twice those amounts by the time WG releases the USN Cruiser split.

If you mount the economic signals with a bonus generating camo, you'd be surprised how fast you can generate Free XP. For instance, a base 1500xp game with premium time, Type 59 camo (2x bonus), Red Dragon, Ouroboros, Hydra, Equal Speed Charlie London, Papa Papa and and the +200% first win bonus like this coming weekend would get you almost 13,000 Free XP.

If you have those special camos that we just got, Mosaic would be around 16k and spring sky would get you close to 20k for the same game, 

Basically, with a +200% first win bonus with the above flag/camo combination, you could grind 750k of Free XP in under 60 games AVERAGING 1500 base xp assuming you won every game.

I wouldn’t panic. Missouri was around for a year or more, and Musashi has only recently been released. 

But even if you do miss the boat (hah!) I imagine it would be replaced by another high tier free xp sink because I am sure free xp conversion drive a lot of gold sales. 

Who knows, the next one could be a Soviet battlecruiser that knows not the meaning of balans.

Musashi is OP. I bought her a week ago. 14 or 15 games and still haven't lost a game in it yet. 100% win rate. I'm sure you can pick her up after she gets the nerf hammer...we don't mind. Nelson on the other hand is very. ...meh

i think the MM shines on you, i don't believe a single BB can carry that much consistently, but GZ i will believe it, lol
