Just wanted to point out that the Eastern Dragon Myoko-clone is now available to purchase from the premium shop.

This is a ship which hasn't been available on the EU server before, unlike her sister ship Southern Dragon.

 

It works like the ARP ships in that it can't mount camos and can take any IJN, ARP or Dragon captain without penalties (like a premium). Doesn't have any other bonuses associated with premium ships though.

She comes with a uniquely named and depicted captain with 10 skill points, it's otherwise a normal IJN captain able to command IJN and ARP ships as well.

 

Both dragon ships are available if you also missed the southern one.

 

Edit: They are also available for doubloons in-game. (credit to @iJoby for that bit of info)

As the owner of a Southern Dragon I must say that the fact that the ships cannot mount a camo, and have no inherent camo bonuses, makes them inferior training ships.

They are still fully researched Myoko's able to take any captain without retraining, but offer little value beyond the visual one.

The price for the ships in store is 18€.

One small bonus is that if the operation of the week is at T7 you can grind captains and credits in them relatively efficiently, especially if you have more than one and can transfer your captain between them.

 

Not worth IRL money though.

They look great. But how often do you see them around these days?

@MrConway, put it for sale in-game, I have 32K doubloons and nothing worth spending it on.

I started playing mine regularly after I realized how fun the Myoko was (I'm using my Aoba captain on it). But they are pretty damn rare, with only 223 039  battles played since last year's event (Flint and ARP Nachi are even more rare for obvious reasons).

Many people disable the skin in their client so they see a no-camo Myoko instead.

 

PS: The eastern dragon doesn't look as cool as the southern dragon. But that's my personal opinion.

I kind of feel the same way, but I am tempted to get them both anyway.

 

Plus I am sure I can find a use for a another 10 point commander or two..

Why would I want to shell out money for ships whose several weeb clones I already have?

I don't know.

Collecting?

Having a Myoko-fest every time there is a higher than normal 1st win bonus event?

You really like the color blue?

You are Chinese?

You have found a way to make 7 different Myoko builds?

 

Why do people do things anyway?

I love the Myoko and would happily buy one of these, probably the Southern Dragon as I think she looks fantastic.

 

Sadly however, I'm still triggered by the ARP Nachi situation so I'm going to pass.

Ouh, also Kaga...but I really don't know what to do with 6k db, now that they removed most premium ships from the tech trees :Smile_hiding:

They are shooting themselves in the foot. People who have doubloons are not likely to spend cash in the shop. They can't buy ships they want through the tech tree, they can only spend them on things covered with silver expenses (consumables) or small things like dismounting upgrades.

Everyone is unhappy, but it will take them a year to realize that. Typical WG thinking.

Still not available in-game for me, got the thumbs-up from @MrConway could be he just likes the idea.

I have extended tech tree mod installed, could it be that is why I cant see E-dragon for sale in-game?

Has anyone bought the ship in-game?

I wanted to let you know that I saw your feedback and liked it, yes :)

 

The ships are unfortunately not available in game at this point, not sure what Nechrom was referring too there.

@MrConway I'm confused too, but your comment has made it clear that the E-Dragon will not be in-game to buy with Dblns.

Case Closed... 

I'm off to the land of Nod for a few hours, Carers said I need some rest. :cap_haloween:

I just had a weak moment. Bugger. So much for self-discipline...!

 

They are rather pretty though.

Everyone talks about those.

And I don't have any arp ship.

But the only one I could be interested on was one based on Kuma.

Aoba? Myoko?

I will pass.

Assuming the game lives this long, they're going to add a new dragon every Chinese New Year from now on, aren't they?

 

Can't say it isn't genius from a money making perspective.

Were I to carp, I might suggest it would be sporting of WG to give 'no cammo' ships the same spotting characteristics of the equivalent cammo-equipped regular ship (a la what they do in WOT). According to the wiki, these Dragon ships are visible from the same distance as the tech tree equivalent with zero cammo applied.

Not something to get overly excitable about though...

I read your post as if they had been put up for doubloons but I couldn't verify since I already own them.

Then I went to sleep. :fish_sleep:

I will get it sooner or later. ATM, too much going on with all these in-game missions. :Smile_playing:

They should put the Arp Nachi up for sale, only about 53K of us own it.
