This comes up periodically, and new players especially aren't aware they can spend credits instead of doubloons on premium consumables. Given that I've seen this come up pretty frequently in various threads of late, that means it's time for a reminder. Here's how it works.

Enjoy your increased number of consumables (you get one extra when using premium) and lessened reload time.

Premium damage control on pretty much anything that will mount it is standard for me. Other consumables I swap out for prem and non-prem as needed.

Unless you have too much money, equip all prem stuff on Battleships.

 

On cruisers and DDs, use only reg. repair and reg. consumables.

 

 

They should also know about the upgrades, don't you think?

Also, the Captain skill 'Superintendent' gives you +1 of all #charge consumables. Premium consumables + Superintendent = 2 extra.

Man, now more BBs will be able to repair fires faster. You suck killjoy. It's in the name.

Good post.  I didn't realize I could use credits for premium consumables till almost 6 months into the game.

 

+1 to you, sir.

Precisely. I've seen three posts expressing disbelief in the possibility this last week alone, and I probably check less than 5% of topics posted.

I don't know, I've found that extra 20 seconds off the cooldown on a destroyer to be a lifesaver. Either to keep me from taking damage or to simply allow my DD to vanish because it's no longer on fire.

Yup. I use premium on everything, even camo. That's 112,500 credits for tier 9 cruisers, but whatever... it's not like I can't make four times that in one match using an actual premium ship.

It works and saves your butt a lot of times, I'll agree to that, but when you're running low on credits (900,000) I just switch it.

Same here,and when I did hear about it last year it took me a couple of weeks to find out HOW to do it.WG didn't make is obvious!

 

 

One other tip,decide which premium consumables to use depending on how likely you are to need it and whether you can cover the cost of having it ( low tier ships might not make enough to cover it).

 

For  example Damage Control isn't really necessary on lower tier cruisers,and you might not need the extra charge/lessened regen time for a Catapult Fighter.

Just kidding, there are bound to be people out there who hadn't realized it.
