What have you found is the most profitable to earn coal..  Need enough to get the Salem

Play the game, complete the daily missions, and always select "More Resources" Daily containers.

Get containers, complete the daily missions.

Or you could have bought about 100 premium shop Go Navy Containers, which, with the tokens all exchanged for regular Go Navy containers, would have netted 180,000 coal...those and one ship coupon would have landed you a Salem.

NEXT!

Well I think the best way to make coal is to take tons of vegetative matter and than stack even more tons of earth over it. Add some heat and wait. Eventually you'll have a nice coal steam you can mine up for all your energy needs. 

You could have farmed GoNavy containers for coal, I think I made over 100k in coal from those alone. 

But if you don't have a lot of coal you could just get the DesMoines a ship I hear is much better than the Salem.

As said grind out all 3 daily containers and choose extra resources. I need to buy more special modules since ranked is starting.

I have been doing and the missions and choosing resources but I got started late during the event. have 78.000 which is 83.00 short I will keep grinding.  Was just curious if there was another route in addition to the missions and choosing resources.  Fire Medic,  retired HFD here.

You could grind to Rank 1, and then convert your steel to coal.:cap_fainting:

Not possible for many players, such as myself, who don't even have any Tier VIIIs yet, let alone Tier IXs or Xs.

THIS.  

@OP  I already bought the Salem with coal.  Don't forget to use the coupon to get her for 180K.  She's a gud bote.

Coal is a long slog, however playing each day and getting crates usually nets coal.  Without the Shark/Eagle crates it cuts earning back a bit. 

Frankly I am surprised that WG hasn't started selling coal.  I am not saying I am for them selling coal. It just seems like, with a portion of the player base able to buy anything WG sells, that they would do this.

Other than the three daily crates/missions there really isnt a way to grind it.

Now with CW and Ranked, those offer opportunities, albeit not always available.

Don't be overly disappointed. Their base price was $5 each. Max quantity discount was what, 20%, I think? Would have cost a cool $400 to do it that way.

Sounds like a bargoon. What would it set you back? 200 smackers?

How is Coal Formed?
 

 

1. Peat is created

Most of the coal we use now was formed about 300 million years ago, when much of the earth was covered by steamy swamps. As plants and trees died, their remains sank to the bottom of the swampy areas, making layers and layers of plant material and eventually forming a soggy, thick material called PEAT.

 

2. Sedimentary rocks squeeze peat!

Over long periods of time, the makeup of the earth's surface kept changing for many reasons. Seas and great rivers caused sand, clay and other minerals to land on top of the peat, burying it further and further into the ground.  
   
   Sandstone and other rocks called sedimentary ( SAID-EH-MEN-TARY) rocks were formed, and the pressure caused by their weight squeezed water from the peat just like your hand might press on a wet sponge and force the water out.

The pressure from sedimentary rocks squeezed the water from the peat.

 

3. Peat changes to coal

Pressing the peat down further in the earth gradually changed the material to coal. Scientists estimate that from 1 to 3 meters of plant matter was needed to form 1 meter of coal that we can use for burning to give us different kinds of energy.

Coal formation is a process that still goes on. It takes a very long time though for the whole process to take place. Some of our newest coal is a only about one million years old…wow…just a fossil baby!

After thousands of years the peat turns into coal.
