Ok.

The ending date being published in the patch note articles and in the Important Dates pinned thread is not enough. I'm sure people will not do the math on how to complete the collection and that the Italian collection in part 2 will NOT drop in Daily Container. You WILL be able to finish the collection for FREE tho.

 

So first, the event starts when the 8.10 maintenance window is over.

8.10 server down time starts Wed, Nov 13th at 5am EST (2am PST)

8.10 server down time scheduled to end Wed, Nov 13th at 8am EST (5am PST)

The Directives are scheduled to start after the server down time is over.

 


There will be 4 Directives of 10 Missions each.

Directive I starts when the server comes back up from maintenance on Wed, Nov 13th. You have to complete 6 of the 10 missions to complete the Directive.

@Ensign_Cthulhu put together a grind strategy guide for the Directives in the thread below.

 

 

The end date to complete all 4 Directives is Mon, Dec 9th at 5am EST (2am PST)!

So plan on being finished with ALL the Directives late Sunday night, Dec 8th!

 


Italian Collection for Unique Italian Cmdr Luigi Sansonetti

There are 4 sub-sections of the collection and 16 total items to collect. You get ONE collection item in each Resolute and Rapid container no matter if it is a regular or premium container. There will be 6 containers available in the Directives and 3 containers in the Daily Shipments. You can get more regular containers in the Armory for Mediterranean Tokens (30/box)  that you earn in 8.10. The tokens will be earned in the Directives, Daily Shipments and the Daily Chain Missions. So husband your tokens for getting more containers in the Armory.

 

There are 16 items in 4 sections. The reward for each sub-section completed is a day of WoWs premium time. The reward for completing all 4 sections is Luigi Sansonetti

Free Containers with 1 item each

You can get 6 containers with 1 collection item each in the 4 Directives.

You can get 3 containers with 1 collection item each in the Daily Shipments from Nov 13th to Nov 27th.

You can get up to 29 containers from the up to 892 total Mediterranean Tokens earned from the Directives, Daily Chains and Daily Tokens.

So if you want to get Luigi for free, you need to spend your Mediterranean Tokens on the regular containers in the Armory to have a chance at getting all the collection items you need. You need 16 items and only 9 come from the Directives and Daily Shipments. You exchange duplicates at a rate of 4:1, but wait until you have all the duplicates you need to finish the collection, before converting them.

 

You can buy Containers in the premium shop, but no price yet. You get 1 item per container.

 

NOTE: The collection items will NOT drop in Daily Containers.

NOTE: The containers will return in patch 9.4 in the Armory for coal (TBA coal price) and patch 9.4 will likely drop late April-ish to May-ish.

***YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BUY CONTAINERS IN THE SHOP TO FINISH THE COLLECTION!!!***

 

@RainbowFartingUnicorn did the math for how many  unique items you need for the collection.

 

If you earn this many containers... ... you need this many unique item drops to complete the collection with duplicates and earn Sansonetti
37-39 9
34-36 10
31-33 11
28-30 12
25-27 13
22-24 14
19-21 15
16-18 16



 


Resolute and Rapid Containers

 

Regular containers  30 Med Tokens each. Tokens are earned in Directives, Daily Chains starting Nov 14, & Daily Shipments

1 Regia Marina one-use camo OR 1 draconic signal flag

ONE of the following; 500 FXP, 1,500 ECXP, 50,000 credits, 600 Coal, 1 Type 59 one-use camo, OR 3 regular economic signals flags

1 element of the collection

 

Premium containers  $5 for 1, 5 for $22.49 ($4.50ea), 10 for $42.49 ($4.25ea), and 25 for $99.99 ($4ea)

15 Regia Marina one-use camo OR 15 draconic signal flag

ONE of the following; 9,000 FXP, 3,500 Coal, OR 3 Type 59 one-use camo

1 element of the collection

 


Daily Shipments

The Daily Shipments start Wed, Nov 13th and ends very early morning Nov 27, so plan on getting your last Daily Shipment on Nov 26th!

10 rewards, one per day, for 14 days. You only have to log in and click to accept the reward each day. No playing required for this part. Rewards in order:

3x Regia Marina camouflage patterns
50,000 credits
10x Mediterranean Tokens
1 day of Premium Account
1x Resolute and Rapid container
3x Regia Marina camouflage patterns
10x Mediterranean Tokens
50 doubloons
10x Mediterranean Tokens
2x Resolute and Rapid containers

 


Daily Chains

Med Tokens can be earned in Daily Chains by completing each section of the Daily Chain.

Tokens earned per Daily Chain are 1 per section. So in the first Daily Chain, you can earn 3 Med Tokens (1 ea for 250, 500, & 1,000 base XP) and can earn 3 more Med Tokens in the second Daily Chain (1,100, 1,200, & 1,300) for a total of 6 Med Tokens for completing both Chains.

 

Up to 6 Med Tokens per day for 27 days for a total of up to 162 Med Tokens.

 

NOTE: Med Token earning in Daily Chains starts Thu, Nov 14th and runs until Dec 10th, so you can earn Med Tokens after the Directives end.

I had thought with WG being much more clear in the articles and Femennenly's Important Dates thread, I would not have to. 

I should have known better.

You mean "the collection elements".

It's great to see you back on deck doing this again. Would it be OK if I stole your work (with appropriate attribution) and ran a parallel thread with directive completion strategies?

I'd only go for the captain with the hope that the Italian BB line will be better than the cruiser line...otherwise  it would be a good time to take a break between the last set of directives and the holiday events...thanks for the write up, Kiz!

At first I read cocaine from the giant orange text "containers" and from my mobile, my thumb was blocking the letters N and T with the R and S letters being one line below.

So I was like "wut"

:Smile_teethhappy:

 

I used the biggest default font, because there will be people who see you only get 9 free containers from the Directives and Daily Shipments and will complain that it is a money grab. :Smile_facepalm: They won't notice that you can get up to 29 more from using the Tokens you earn and that in Apr/May next year, the containers will be in the Armory for coal.

I kind of agree with that sentiment honestly. Course I will give it a go without spending a dime/doubloon on the collection since the Italians are pretty forgettable save the older premiums. Really don't see the need for his special skills on those ships and they are not going to improve the new ships any. Probably best to farm the captain and hang onto him because he may work better with upcoming Italian ships like DDs.

Itching to look at those directives. I have set myself a rather interesting challenge for this patch, attempting to use only those T7 ships (and T6 carriers) that I have not finished grinding, and I want to see how difficult I am making things for myself by even trying.

I just logged in to write them down. So give me an hour or so with distractions to complete that. I'll send you a PM with the list so you can use it in your thread.

I did a little math for the curious:

If you earn this many containers... ... you need this many unique item drops to complete the collection with duplicates and earn Sansonetti.
