Just got a Wraith out of a hero's watchest, which I already own. So I've now got 10.5k gold. Question is, what to use it on? 

 

Choices are:

Chimera

Bellerophon

Scourge (I have a Defender though..) 

T34 (traded that in bit ago but miss it, weirdly) 

Captured Tiger (German) 

 

Or i could convert it to free xp and get the tier 10 German VK. 

 

Or wait for Black Friday at the end of next month. Would no doubt burn through some of it on equipment and prem time though..

 

Any opinions?

I'd go with the Scourge, excellent speed for a tank with this kind of armor.

VK is not worth converting gold for, imho. You might as well play the TT version.

T34 has been power creeped but is still a beast. It's my go to tank for Ranked Battles and it always seems to do well in them. You just can't beat that alpha + pen combo.

Barfphone and Shimera are a no go no matter how good they are. Have you seen them? Blah!

Captured King Tiger is also a solid tank. If you don't have many German premiums, I would be going for this one.

Is the captured a German premium?

Save it for Black Friday. That's most of the price of a year of prem time.

The Captured is US.

Black Friday sale. Get the most you can out of that gold.

Wait for black Friday.

The Scourge is the best Soviet Tier 8 heavy IMO, much better than the defender.

LOL sorry, still half asleep. Obviously meant to say Georgian not German... Since the captured Tiger resides in Fort Benning, GA, United States. :P

 

But no really, thanks for correcting me. Captured is American... the captured part should be a dead giveaway but somehow I managed to ignore it completely. :D

I’d hold your gold till something better comes along.

If you want the best tank convert your gold to free xp and get the m60 Patton. Best of the tier 10 premium tanks

Seems like Black Friday may be the way to go, if I can stop myself chipping away at the gold that is. Its a shame the Halloween tanks look so weird as the Inferno (Chimera) looks like it could be interesting to play. I really enjoy the M51 and it looks almost like a British version, that trades in some gun handling for more alpha.

Get the VK. If you like the VII it’s basically the same but with a bigger boom. I like them both but I’m a wierdo

The scourge is better than the defender, it's not as easy to use but it's more rewarding.

I don't have the VII, I'm only at tier 7 on that line. I'm a serious pain in try he [edited]for reds when playing the E-100 though so the fact it has the same gun is tempting.

That's good to know, I don't play the Defender much as it bores the life out of me. I want my tanks to be good but not that good they pretty much just play themselves.

I think the Scourge is in one of the 70% off store bundles atm, so might be worth it if you have the others. 

 

Otherwise wait for Black Friday, you might get a Black T34...

I can't bring myself to get either of the new Halloween tanks, even though the awakened ones in pics look really good and even though one is a centurion. I might wait until they are earnable.

Fair point, black T34 would be nice.

I understand what you mean regarding the Halloween tanks, unfortunately the Inferno gets 50mm more frontal turret armour than the unskinned variant due to that big gargoyle on the front, and an extra 50mm armour that adds some HEAT protection too is quite an advantage.

Out of your options, the Scourge by far. It's probably the most versatile tier VIII heavy.

Garage has too many tanks to list now...
