"Fastest" Line to regrind for Research Bureau

What is y'alls opinion on the fastest or cheapest line to regrind for RB. I have already re-ground the US CL line and it took longer then i wanted. I want the Ohio and obviously this will take some time but might as well do it as quickly and efficiently as possible.

I currently have these lines to regrind:

  • US: CL, CA, DD, CV, and soon BB.
  • Russian: BB.
  • German: BB. 
  • Japanese: both DDs, and BB

I have t9s for many other lines so others are options, But out of these what is the fastest or cheapest (free XP to get past the rough ships in a line, looking at Seattle). 

Now obviously skill of line is a part of this but lets assume this isn't a problem. Though I dislike Russian BBs, weird i know they are "broken" but i hate using them. I am leaning to regrind US DD  and German BB. 

Thoughts?

If you are just going to free xp it, the Harugumo line is the apparently least xp to regrind (something like 670k).

If you aren't, then whatever DD or cruiser line you enjoy playing/do well in the most.

I have perma camos from events on my usn light and heavy lines so that is my grind.

The German were very easy.

If you play cv the us line is the best to regrind.  I am working through the brits because I have a perma camo for the t8 and wow there not easy!

I would say the line you are most efficient in and/or enjoy the most.  Simple. 

For me it was the french and german CA's.

Gambatte!

Which line is easiest?... NO ONE CAN ANSWER THAT FOR YOU, BUT YOU.. Which line of ship do you progress fastest playing?  YOU tell me, don't ask me or anyone else because we do NOT know.

as for the rest of this......

cheapest?  CHEAPEST????

Ok Language ..

"Re Grind"..

By definition of the word "Grind" what your paying is TIME...  Not Money, Not Free XP..  Time.. you play..

The whole point for lets say ohh "Me", is to use the Research Bureau to trade the ships in for points that can be then converted to free XP.. the idea is to GAIN free XP not spend it all... not yet anyway.

(A Hint.. Reset ONE line, not many lines, just ONE line at a time.. grind it back up to tier X then either reset that line of another line rinse repeat.. turn in Research Bureau points for more free XP..    12,500 Research Bureau points = 250,000 Free XP.. there are reasons for only doing one line at a time.. Bonus Points..ie.. you get more free XP if you reset one line at a time PER 30 days..  that's right, per month.. READ the fineprint!  There are no short cuts!)

What do you do with Free XP?.. well apparently you can trade it in for certain ships.. and some of these ships take A LOT of FXP.. in some case 2 million FXP..

so you wanna throw FXP away to hurry back up the line for a net loss of HOW MUCH FREE XP?......

Back to school with the lot of you!  NOW!.. The free XP you spend to avoid the grind is LOST free XP.. if your going to spend it to avoid the grind DO NOT BOTHER STARTING.  You will leave yourself frustrated and pissed off.  Oh and you'll feel like a blithering idiot fool moron by the time your done. SO don't do it.

If your going to take advantage or the Research Bureau do it the right way.. GRIND the line.. that's your maximum payout.

The only thing in the Research Bureau system worth getting is the Free XP.. everything else in there just takes from you giving very little return.  Maybe if your a UNICUM player you can pull things like that but than if your a UNICUM player you don't need to!  Jeo Average how ever better pay attention.

Man, where some of you kids come up with these dumb meems I will never understand... There are no short cuts here.. if you try to create one you will loose far more than you gain.

IMO, RB is not worth unless you have all ship lines. If you are "wasting" time to regrind lines you are only delaying other lines.

 

But if you want to do it, get the line that you enjoyed to most, to make the grind easier.

for myself, I tend to regrind line  that either I  have resold and want the ships back with   commander needing to be trained more.        My next line probably is italian cruisers as  I would like to have the commanders to be higher skilled even though I have all  the bote from t6-10.

Well you obviously didn't read my whole small question because literally stated ignore the "skill" aspect which to me wraps best line for you and fun together,. I was asking for  by the numbers what would be the quickest. Jp gunboat DD was the answer and i enjoy that line. Also I dont free XP the line i even stated i only used it for Seattle because it is so bad and wanted wooster for ranked and clan battles which i didn't state but shouldn't matter. I also only Free xped the last 4th of it so get off your high horse.  I already have the Alaska and other ships up for grabs on free xp are passes for me. So if i grind for the Ohio is it not the same as grinding free xp for a ship so... how is that a waste? Free XP ships currently Alaska i have it, Azuma sucks, Friesland DD with no torps and only a little different then line, same for smalland, Nelson dislike British BBs and already have lenin which is just a better version. So again I am a moron for grinding for a ship i want vs ships i careless about and even to your point of using free xp i do not use it for whole line or even whole ship. 

You also said  I should grind all of the lines first... WHY? for ships i do not want like German CA, British CA, British BB, Chinese DD, etc. That is just a dumb argument to have with my question. I did not want to state all of the t8s and t9s i have that I am very close to getting T10 because not really the point but safe to say only line i would want that i dont have T8-T9 in the works for is Russian DD. So again sorry i do not want all of the T10s for lines i could careless about. 

It is also safe to assume the lines i do have that i stated are the one enjoy beside the Russian BB that I stated i disliked. 

Your other huge weird point was going after "By definition of the word "Grind" what your paying is TIME...  Not Money, Not Free XP..  Time.. you play.." no duh. I already answered the free xp part. BUT the time aspect and grind aspect obviously wth. I only regrind 1 line at a time and I know it will take a bit that is OBVIOUS so not sure why you went off on that.... Guess you just assume everybody is less intelligent then yourself. There is a word for that I am not going to insult your intelligence and assume you can think of it. 

Cool I got called a moron for asking a simple question about which is the fastest (JP gunboat DD) so I can regrind for the RB more efficiently. HOW DARE I. also maybe so tricks for RB out there i did not know about so people would post about it.   

So literally every point you had I either disputed within my question to begin with, or left out because it was obvious and didnt want to have my post be wordy for no reason. Though seems i should be wordy so grumpy people like yourself do not go off on literally a simple question somehow tying it into age and intelligence?? Guess I should drop out of engineering University because I am a moron for asking about best way to save time on grind aka fastest/cheapest line. 

 

Not sure what you can argue at this point so just do not even reply. No need to be rude or go on a childish rant over a question YOU misinterpreted

 

Everybody else thanks for the replys. o7

I'm on grind 5 or so of the RN CL line.

Free XP to Leander.  Then grind to Mino using free XP for all upgrades.

I really enjoy the line so it's still kinda fun for me.  I usually only get the Mino on the 2nd grind of the season 'cause I really don't like it and just play one coop for the final points.

This response was totally normal, and in no way a complete overreaction to a straightforward question.

The fastest like to regrind is the one you perform best in and enjoy the most. The better you perform, the significantly more XP you'll earn over the course of the regrind.

WOWS Fitting Tool will give you the exact 1-10 XP costs.

As others have said, the fastest regrinds are the ones you mostly enjoy since you'll want to play those ships.

But for pure FXP purposes. The Harugumo line is the cheapest at 676,640 XP. Shima line is next at 685,140. Other DD lines run from 712k-770k (French and Brits are expensive). Cruiser lines are 740-770k. And finally BB's are all 875-900k.

I think you need to enjoy playing that line.
It must not be unpleasant.
You need to be pleasant for you.
You must enjoy playing that every day. At least a little.
