As the title says Jean Bart is now for sale in the shop. This surprises me as I assumed it would be a FXP ship or Coal but it is a $$$ ship. So heads up if you want Jean Bart - it's no longer SOON it's HERE. :Smile_veryhappy: You can get it in the Arsenal for 228K Coal too.

EDIT - I have updated the content since the original post to more accurately reflect circumstances.

I wonder if it means she could be part of the super container rotation or Christmas crates

I would assume so if they are selling it for $$$. This makes me wonder if Alaska will go for real $$$ too?

So then, this could now bring in the prospect that Alaska could be sold in the shops.

" If you already have this ship in your collection, you will receive 19,200 doubloons as compensation. "

Seems like, but I'm still holding out for Free XP or Coal version.

Just looked in the tech tree and JB is there with the info it can only be purchased in Premium Shop. Alaska and the T10 French BB are both still showing SOON.

HOLD the phone! Jean Bart is in the Arsenal right now for 228K Coal.

Geez that's awfully more than the Musashi at the same tier what gives?

Can't imagine what the Bourgogne is gonna cost if it's to be released for coal as well.

It's actually 228K I had a typo. With the -25% coupon it would be 171K.

Yeah it seems the 750K FXP for all T9's doesn't translate to Coal prices being the same.

Hmmm, I still don't think it's worth using the coal atm until we see Alaska released or Bourgogne in the foreseeable future. 

 

The option to use the wallet directly changes things though.

Its in the NA arsenal now.
Honestly I'm kinda pissed its not available for FXP as well.. Spent money on camo to aid in it's procurement, I know it wasn't announced it would be exclusively coal but I figured it would follow the same model as the Musashi.

Ideally this may mean plans to give the option to convert FXP -> Coal but I doubt it. Seems they're going to put it behind a pay wall or a long grind with crate RNG.
Not happy about the latter.. Earning FXP is far easier than earning coal at the slots.

WG are you that desperate for money that you now need to sell Tier IX ships? Now people who havent played a single battle can now buy a tier IX ship.

Yeah, I am holding the coal until I see how things shake out too. Would rather have the T10 French BB than JB. I am a few K coal away anyway plus I need to wait until 12/24 for the new coupon as I had got Salem.

What happen to WG saying they will never directly sell Tier IX Prems.

I believe they said T10 would never be sold not T9.

Jean Bart is for sale for $148 in the Premium Shop right now.

That's the bundle package.

 

It's 79.99 for the ship itself, but it does get that 3x mission bonus with it

As mentioned above by @Troa_Barton it's in the NA shop now. But holy crap. $80 for the base package and $150 for the top one. Gonna pass.

That's almost extortion. Not cool WG, at all.

What's super odd, is that the base package was not there when I first refreshed the page. It's there now though.
