The Armory[1] is an in-game complement to the Premium Shop, offering items in exchange for in-game currencies. It becomes available to players at Account Level 11.

Introduced in Update 0.7.6, the Armory replaced the old Ranked/Clan Battles reward ship system and since has expanded widely.

Access

The Armory can be accessed in-game by clicking the 'Armory' button in Port, upper left. It can also be accessed directly from a web browser via these links for the English language version: North America  Europe  Asia  (You must be logged in to the WoWS web site to see the Armory in context of your account.)

Legal Tender

Across the top of the main Armory screen there is a bar displaying all currencies available for use in Armory[1] exchanges.

Currencies

Event Currencies, Resources, Doubloons Doubloons, and Credits Credits can be exchanged for loot, much of which is unavailable elsewhere. Each item or bundle is offered for a single currency (only Steel can convert to Coal during an exchange, but that is rarely advisable). In the few cases that an item can be acquired for more than one currency (e.g. signal flags for either Coal or Credits), the item is listed twice — once for each currency.

Coupons

Each account starts with a fresh set of coupons. Coupons can be used for a one-time discount on an exchange in the corresponding category. Only one coupon can be used per exchange. For high-ticket items such as ships, this discount can be quite significant.

Coupons can be used to apply discounts when exchanging the following currencies for items: Coal Coal, Steel Steel, Credits Credits, and for Doubloons Doubloons when used for Premium Ships.

Coupons are periodically refilled, and cannot be stockpiled -- a coupon unused when a refill occurs simply has its refill date updated. Refill frequencies are as follows:

  • Ships (25% off): 1 coupon every 6 months, with the nearest update. Future refill dates are subject to change.
  • 27 June 2018 (Update 0.7.6)
  • 24 December 2018
  • 26 June 2019 (Update 0.8.5)
  • 26 December 2019
  • 26 June 2020 (est.)
  • Premium Ships (25% off ships exchangeable for Doubloons): 1 coupon every 6 months, with the nearest update.
  • 26 December 2019
  • 26 June 2020 (est.)
  • Upgrades (25% off): 1 coupon every update.
  • Signals (50% off): 2 coupons every update.
  • Signals (25% off): 2 coupons every update.
  • Camouflages (25% off): 2 coupons every update.

A coupon refresh need not occur with an update. When an update is delayed, the coupon refresh may occur on the originally projected date.
