Musashi, coal, and free exp

The Musashi is current selling in the Armoury for 132,000 Coal (with the coupon) and I have 47k coal now. 

The Musashi is selling in the Tech Tree for 750,000 free exp, I have 670k free exp. 

Is it crazy, or does it suddenly seem foolish to get it for Free Exp? Shouldn't I just get the Nelson and/or and save for a future draft choice with the Free Exp? Because at the rate I am acquiring coal it feels like a lot less work than all the exp.

FXP is easier to obtain and you can acquire it continuously, so to me if I was considering getting the Musashi, it would be with FXP. I would save coal for things that could not be easily obtain elsewhere.

Aren't they introducing Resource Containers with the next patch?

Might want to get a few of those and guess your drop rates before deciding.

Musashi is handy for coal if you don't have the Free XP.

However there will be new freemiums in time, and also the arsenal will rotate freemiums for coal as well. Personally if you want the boat, id go for the Free XP and save your coal for the Salem or another freemium.

Coal right now is difficult to obtain. Until the "more resources" containers become an option, then it'll be easier.

I personally, am choosing to use coal to obtain the ship.

As for your predicament:

Since you already have 670k attempt to get it with FXP. But ultimately: if there is another ship you're eyeing wait on spending the coal. If there is no other ship, then use the first resource (coal or FXP) that gets to the required price.

while on the topic of the Arsenal. Do we know if they'll ever be switching out the ships in it?:cap_hmm:

 

I only ask because I have most of them already.

Yeah looks like a Tirpitz or something is on the Arsenal picture... So I get the feeling the Arsenal might very soon have my undivided attention if Tirpitz, Scharnhorst , or Harekaze gets put there for coal.

Musashi is on my list of ships to aquire, but she easily be bumped down the list and other things put ahead of her....

I would suggest not buying it at all, it's just a worse Yammy that sometimes gets to crapon t7s.

But if you do buy it, FXP is much easier to earn than coal.

I am pushing it by looking at Tier 8's! 

I am not in love with the Musashi though, so it is worth a consideration. I am kicking myself still for missing the Missouri, I just do not want to trade down.

with the "more resources" crate going to become available coal will become easier to obtain, at least 400 per crate, 1200 per crate best case scenario. So you can obtain 1200-3600 per day by choosing that option once 0.7.7 drops.

Personally if I have the 20% coupon for the ship via the arsenal, then I would use the coal.  That will start the clock on obtaining another coupon for a ship, which they've determined you earn every six patches.  But you can't stockpile them.

I have just over 1 mil FXP and Alaska is what I'm saving it for. Assuming that WG doesn't pull a WG and make her available only for coal or steel.:Smile_sceptic:

doubt they'd do her for steel. They'd get way more money for F-EXP

Is there anywhere they don't switch out the ships? I don't know the answer but every other shop/sale/fxp ship store has a rotation associated with it and nothing stays forever, even the tech tree dubloon ships.

I'm of the opinion that as new FXP Premiums come into the game, they add older ones to the Coal shop. Like how Musashi was added to the Arsenal while the newest hotness, Kronstadt, is currently only available for FXP.

it was 50/50, but since they are adding the crates to pick from that give 400 guaranteed coal per pop, its a no brainer. Of course use a coupon. If you already spent the ship coupon, wait a few updates for the refresh. 25% off 200,000 is quite a bit

always the option of getting another tier 10 with all the said free exp. and with birthday event coming up and if it like last year it would = 1,000 battle =1 super container and for every tier 10 = 1 super container.

Save your coal for the Salem. I wish I could save more free xp, but I can't help but spend it on ship lines.

Is the Kronstadt worth the free XP? I have just over 1 million now and do not want Musashi as I already have the Missouri. Is there a timeline on the Alaska?

Salem comes with the premium camo and has the same bonuses of a tier 10 camo on top of its 90k base service fee.

It seems a better value to use coal. But what about Salem?

I already have the Missouri, the Musashi and the Kronshtadt.  So, the Salem it is!  But, you folks think the Alaska will be the next freemium ship coming out?

 

Source?
