Legal Tender

Wows_Armory_0.9.5_Wallet.png

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

From left to right in the image above, two (temporary) Event Currencies, two Resources (Steel and Coal), Doubloons Doubloons, and Credits Credits. At far right is the player's Wallet, displaying all currencies and resources.

Additional currencies may be shown when appropriate to the selected page. For example, Research Points on the Research Bureau page that is visible to those who qualify for the Research Bureau. (All currencies can be seen in the Wallet.)

Currencies

The displayed currencies 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.

Top Bar

Above the Currency Bar is the Top Bar. Click the magnifying glass to find an item by name (this is especially useful for ships). The bell opens a window showing Notifications. 'Coupons' provides access to the Armory coupons (see below). 'Purchase Doubloons' opens the same page as the Doubloons and Premium button on the side bar.

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.

Coupon Image

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 each for Resources and Doubloon ships every 6 months. 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
  • 22 June 2020
  • 19 December 2020 (est.)
  • Upgrades for Coal (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.
