I am sitting on a bit of Free XP what are the best free XP ships in your opinions. I play all classes and nations, maybe DDs slightly more.

Jean Bart is a coal ship.

Nelson is 375,000 FXP, and if you play British battleships she makes a good trainer/first win farmer. A little less borderline OP than she used to be, now that T7 is bottom tier against T9 a lot rather than frequently top tier against T5, but she's still got that burn-the-world charm and the superheal that lets you get a lot of your fire or flood damage back.

I got the Nelson seems good still have  little over 3mil , looking at the Alaska,  or maybe that tier 10 IJN boat.  Those EU DDs seem a little over priced

If you have enough, get Nelson and Jean Bart.  Alaska, I meant Alaska.

JB=coal.

I am with you on the 2Mil FXP for the T10 DD.  It is way too much for any ship.  The JB has been brought up twice, but it is a coal ship, not a FXP ship.   Since the best ones are no longer available, and you already have the Nelson, your only real choice is the Alaska or the Friesland.  Both are good ships, so choose based on the type of ship you enjoy the most.  Is it a cruiser or destroyer.

If you want a DD, then Friesland is 100% 24-carat magic. That is my favorite DD. It isn't a typical dd because of poor concealment, but once you learn to play patiently, you can absolutely rip people a new one. Torps? Who needs them? Friesland doesn't. 

Just understand that Friesland does take a very unique playstyle that takes time to develop. It isn't like the standard sneaky-sneaky DDs that run in, spot, contest. You need to have patience and skill. 

 

 

If you like cruisers, Alaska is gold. I don't play cruisers much. I pretty much suck at them. But even I can make Alaska work. A purchase I'll never regret.

When you said "a bit of Free XP", I was imagining maybe half a million. Oops! :Smile_veryhappy:

I'm creeping up on two million and waiting to see how Hayate performs in the big wide world. I know some CC's are talking her down, but I just got finished taking Yuudachi out for a 24 hour rental last night and I liked her despite her having a similarly 'meh' reputation.

"Best" is highly subjective.  I can only tell you my own personal decision.  My FXP hoard was sitting at about 970K when I signed off last night.  I expect to have Alaska in my port in a few more days.

In a few more weeks, you can ask me if that was a good decision.

If I had that much FXP I’d get the Smaland! I have most the other ships mentioned with the exception of Azuma (sorry, I mentioned it!). Smaland has a high price but it’s a tier X and is such a beautiful looking ship!! It helps that I’m loving the Ostergotland also!

I love my Fries for the sole purpose that it spanks CVs if they are careless.

I'm saving up for Friesland, personally.  Less than 100k fxp away.

I too was saving up for Friesland (being of Dutch ancestry) and am 4K fxp away. However, now I'm wondering I should hoard it and use it to get the next new FXP ship (I'm not sure that Smaland is worth the price, and I already have Georgia/JB/Alaska). I have no idea what's in the pipeline (and if its going to be worth the wait).  I've been meaning to get the Nelson so one thought would be to pull the trigger on that and the rebuild the FXP and then either use it to get the Friesland or whatever new FXP ship has been added.

Not including FXP ships that are no longer available, and basing the ranking off of how the ships perform, factually, according to the data.

1.) Alaska
2.) Nelson
3.)Smaland/Friesland.

Alaska is certainly clear winner as it performs better than the remaining.

The Friesland is essentially a tier 8 ship with tier 9 MM. In actuality, there are plenty of tier 8 DDs that are more competitive. Considering DDs as a ship type are underperforming at high tiers, having a DD that is incorrectly tiered makes the ship DoA.

Whilst one cannot make a fully accurate conclusion about the Smaland (not enough owners yet), one can make a very educated guess based on current data and the attributes of the Smaland. It suffers the same fate as the Friesland as does appear the high tier pan-euro tech tree ships as well. They are all 1-2 tiers higher than their competitive value.

There are not alot of free XP option right now.  The two dd are it.

Saving your free xp to skip a ship that you don't like might be the best option
