Thnx a bunch man, I wanted that ship and the discount is solid.

Strange, I entered the shop this morning and only saw the 2 HSF ships.

Shoutout to you.

Worth it? I know Flamu's commentary from the time of her release, but I also know how fragile this boat can be. I tend to collect all sorts of stuff but this one does not stir up the urge that I have with other ships.

The boat is fragile as any CL (well not Nurnberg fragile), bit it is a really fun ship to play : faster than T6 DD, guns with flat trajectory but rather short range, godd AP, ok HE, with CE you can even stealth torp ...

will give her a miss - I already have 3 ships that are not part of a line, and Captain xp grinding is...slow (just need to spend more time in the ships which given that there are 'progressive' lines, won't happen).

[Same with the Polish DD and also ARP etc ships)

Someone just has to test it, because wiki doesn't tell her price :cap_hmm:

 

De Grasse and Molotov prices vary between ~4500-5500, so likely something around those numbers.

Do you remember the exact amount / have a screenshot? Could be helpful for those who are interested as wiki doesn't show her price.

She's worthy of purchase.
Her performance alone is no reason to buy her since her DPM, range and fire chance are low, but more importantly she is fun and unique.
She's has the highest top speed and longest torpedo range of any cruiser in-game (36,5 knots and 12 KM).
A well-played Duca is very difficult to kill because of her slim profile, great maneuverability, high speed and good concealment, even at the relatively short ranges she has to operate at to properly utilize her AP and stay in range of her main guns.
On top of that it's a very sexy ship.

I put her in the same category as the Perth and Atlanta. A demanding ship that is enjoyable to play and performs well in experienced hands.

Interesting, then valrond said to have got "a bit more than 5k". Would need to see a SS now.

I couldn't resist. was trying to hold out until the Atlanta came up, and i am also waiting for the Gallant. But i needed a premium time top up, and i do love my cruisers, especially ones with a bit of history and a jazzy paint job! I hope i don't regret it!

It depends on how much you like a ship and your time perspective - in the end the best way to grind captain XP right now is not with underage captains on stock ships but in your premium ship of choice with 19 point captain :cap_haloween: And Aosta (unlike Błyskawica or ARP ships) is a ship that's likely to become part of a tree in foreseeable future.

I was logged in,seems like the Duca offer was online about half an hour later than the HSF.

Also a strange thing happened, I managed to grab an offer for Duca, 1 slot and 10 x2 missions for 10 euros that was replaced after a while for the current one which gives Duca,slot, 30 x3 missions and some flags for 17 euros.

general opinion on DUca? is it worth a buy? why?


She's quite fun, as if she were a light cruiser with some DD DNA in her.

In fact, you can stealth torp with a decent captain, and she has the speed to catch all non-Russian DDs off-speed boost without even using the speed flag.
And her fast AP...lovely.

Around 5.000 dubloons, it does not have a value in the WOWS wiki as it says "promo" but should be the same as ,say , the Molotov, a t6 CL.

Played 3 Ranked battles in it this morning with low skilled captain and got 3 wins in the R10-R6 and R5-R2 brackets. (I know the sample has too few battles)

It handles pretty well and feels strong if u can use island cover and pelt BBs plus overconfident DDs.

Guess if u have the Budyony u can do even better.

For the price i had to buy this, seems decent. Short range for main guns but the reload is quite good. Very agile and turret turn is decent. I also noticed the HE inflicts a lot of fires on BB's

 

Well worth the money paid

 

Not as fragile as i expected, if you turn any cruiser broadside then you can expect heavy damage, keep this ship angled and you will be ok

Ok, so in short... if you already have duca. By buying it again, it will cost you 10 euros to transform one of your T10's into a "Premium moneymaker"... if you buy that T10 camo (cost 5k doubloons). Only downside is you need dedicated captain for it.. but it's T10.... shouldn't you already have great captain in it...

Yes, if you wish.

 

I bought both Belfast and Blyskawica (while I had both ships earlier) and now I have 13k+ doubloons for 25€. I'm now waiting for a six month premium sale and it'll be rather cheap half a year premium account for me.

My closest Captain to 19 is 13.... so not currently an option :)
