hi so i logged in and got the free 50 doubloons, what is the best thing i can i do with this?  IVe been playing for a year or so and this is my first doubloons in the game (WOT gives you gold a whole lot more often)

 

Also I have 180 sovereigns and it looks like the game has stopped rewarding them and now rewards different prizes for completing the Royal Navy tasks. should I just spend my sovereigns on either the Bert Dunkirk captain or the union jack camos?? 

i only have 13 guineas, i doubt i will get up to 50, can this be used to purchase anything else??

 

thanks

Get the captain you can use him for the British line. There isn’t much you can do with 50 doubloons so I would just hold on to them.

The best use for 50 Db is to dismount two hugely expensive upgrade modules to move to a new ship rather then selling and re-buying them.

No, there will be no more Sovereigns - unless WG announces something new.  I'm sitting on mine just in case.

Not as far as I know.  You can purchase more in the Shop if you want Cossack.

Welcome! My advice is first and foremost to turn off dubloon payment for premium dc part, speed boost, repair party etc. This is a classic way for wg to steal 25 dubs from you.

i would wait for a pirate hunting event which happen 1-2 times a year or so, if you kill one you get 250 dubloons. If youre short on port slots wait for a sale and buy one. If not go long and wait to earn more (they can come in the mythical supercontainer) the only real use for them is to buy permanent camo for tier 10 ships, which cost 5000 dubs each. Unless you plan to pay for more you can also wait for a free xp conversion sale and do that.

There is also a special one for you offer in the Premium shop.  10 Guineas for.99.  Even if you don't get up to 50 Guineas in time, you will get credit compensation that will make it worth the .99.

Special Commanders are valuable, so I would say get Cmdr Dunkirk.  You can always get flags for free or purchase - not so much with Commanders.  Notice they cost 35k coal in the Arsenal.

BTW, a good way to get free Doubloons is to win Operations with five stars.  For instance, I got 300 Db last night for 5-starring Terror of the Deep (hard).  (You can do this only once per Op, but it adds up.)

7.11 has a destroyer RN collection so they will still be around I would believe?

Pretty sure you get some doubloons as you go through the service levels..right?  Can't remember now, but I'm pretty sure I did.  I wasted them of course...not knowing how valuable they would be.

Campaign and collection continers completely different. You can currently see the new collection containers on the PTS.

Sadly, no. How does one dragon flag or Royal Navy camo, and and one collection item sound?  The premium collection crates give 20 dragon flags or Royal Navy camo + two collection items.

Does anyone know what is the compensation exchange rate for these guineas??

No, actually.  You get 1 day Premium at Level 12; all the rest is Credits and consumables.

Dont think any were in service levels, but there are some small doubloon rewards in the first campaign , science of victory.

Sometimes, there are super specials on a port slot that might be worth keeping 50 gold for.

But you can earn more gold through ranked seasons and some scenarios that might give enough for some quality of life upgrades (I have found buying port slots when they are in special to be an effective use of gold).

Almost everything you need to know is in Kizarvexis' thread. posted above  Many players, myself included, got the Warspite and Gallant with Sovereigns while already owning the ship and we received the full Doubloon value.  As iDuckman said, the info is on the purchase page in the Arsenal.  Warspite: 6500 and Gallant: 4500.
