Hi Guys,

Please advice what's the best ship to buy at the moment at World of Warship?

I got %30 discount coupon today.

Is PRINZ EITEL FRIEDRICH any good?

Let me know and thank you in advance.

You need to give us more information. What kind of ships do you play? Does nation matter? What do you want to do with this ship (train commanders, grind credits, etc.). Does tier matter?

PEF is not a typical German BB.  While it is does not have accurate guns (which is typical for KM BB's) and is pretty strong against planes, it has no turtleback armor scheme and is a lot more fragile.  You should read the review by @LittleWhiteMouse before you make a decision to buy it...

there are a few that stand the test of time.

The Atago is one of the best. Sims is a great ship. Prinz Eugen is a great ship, little harder, but great. tons of new premiums but some of the oldies are still goodies.

How do you guys keep getting these coupons?

Have no idea. Was playing yesterday, and after a match I had a message of a coupon showing up in port. 30%, expired in 3 days

@Wombatmetal

I got one of these coupons today myself.  Seems to be related to when your account's third anniversary is.  Sadly for me, Jean Bart's not in the shop, so the coupon is of limited usefulness at best.  Might use mine on Vanguard in a day or two, who knows?

Yes, I remember something about third anniversary. My anniversary with WG is in June, and two days ago I had a message thanking me for my first anniversary and giving me some meritorious camo, them later a message for my second anniversary giving me some more meritorious camo (which is meh for the record) and then this. 

Who am I to kick a gift horse in the mouth?  PEF for $22, I'm down.

Vanguard was an option too but this unlocks the campaign. Like many of us I have way too many premiums and don't "need" another

I like all types to be honest. I mostly play WOT but sometimes play ships too.

I would prefer battleship however, something easy and noob proof

PEF's a good option for the campaign, I suppose.  I'm mulling Vanguard because of the extra 200 Steel from her snowflake.

Vanguard is a recently introduced T8 Royal Navy (British) battleship.  Can be found in the premium shop if you're in the mood for such a ship:

I bought Boise. I won the special cammo on Helena and bought a Dasha captain for it on When I fell ravenously in love with both I got the same 30% coupon and couldn't resist Boise. I absolutely love the Brooklyn class cruisers! Which is of course the understatement of the year: Brooklyn coming from the Dutch word Breukelen.

I may be a little bias, but the Perth is amazing fun to play!

I've never been to Oz and am in love with Perth. With the smoke upgrade out of arsenal she is a little beast

Yep, Perth is a blast.  Fun to push into a cap and support DDs with all of those 152s.

For me, the ideas that getting the PEF unlocks the campaign early and that there will be Doubloon compensation if it is earned would be decisive.  The coupon makes it a discount on the Doubloons along with less pressure to complete the campaign.  And, I would have a unique play style BB.

I use the coupons to get premium time.

I think 365 day premium is on sale for like $50.

Take another 30% and your getting 1 year premium for $35.

Get the ship that will earn the most credits!! No doubt about it. Training captains is a distant secondary consideration. YOU WANT TO GET PAID. At this time I think Musashi, Jean Bart, tirpitz, Atago or one of the other high tier ships would be best choice. I even make a fistful of credits every time I take out asashio because it’s a tier 8. 

Google search for “wows premium ship review”

I have a lot of premium ships. Mouse is very reliable source of pro/con information regarding premium ships. Articles are clear, concise, well organized and tons of fun to read. I prefer reading about them to watching heavily accented YouTube reviews. I mean those folks do a good job and seeing ships in action is great but with text format I can more easily skip to the sections I’m interested in.

I'd get something expensive to make the most of the percentage based discount. When I got the -30% off voucher I bought Jean Bart. Jean was a choice where I could not justify buying at full price, but the significant discount made it acceptable to my budget.

I purchased the 12,000 doubloons package with my last 30% off coupon and am going to use them to purchase the 360 days of premium time when I get back after X-mas vacation.  It feels good to double up on discounts.  If you are patient enough you can do this with tech tree doubloon ships as well.  Hopefully another of these sales is coming soon.
