Currently our Conqueror does not have the accurate turret armor that the original had. This is because of the strange shape of the turret making finding accurate measurements hard. The PC version buffed the Conqueror to the point where the tank is practically impenetrable in the turret. 

 

As for what we have the turret is practically butter against equal tiered and up opponents. It has the armor to bounce a couple shells but you should not rely on it.

 

We will get the buff probably next month or maybe even late this month.

 

Keep your eye on a swivel.

Looks like a promising line, currently grinding to get my Conqueror to get the 215B!

What skills and perks would you prioritise for the Conqueror?

Do I need the camo perk? Would it be worth me swapping out deadeye for camo?

Repairs first than Six Sense or Brothers in Arms. Than maybe safe stowage. I would keep deadeye.

Great review.  Thanks!

 

BTW, I love my Conqueror... it's outstanding.  If it ever gets the PC buffs this thing will be stupid-good.

Totally agree. Best tank in the game I have played so far.

Aschenblume,

I'm almost done grinding the Caernarvon. Went Bottom package for 30,000 xp, A barrell and Turret, then 110,000xp to Conqueror.

Question, Right now Conqueror is 30% off. If I research the Conqueror, before unlocking all the packages in the Caernarvon, how does that affect the packages in the next tank, after the purchase. I'm trying to save 30% and then finish playing the Caernarvon and unlock all it's packages B barrell and motor etc, for the Conqueror.

The B Barrell is the first upgrade on the Conqueror, I don't want to lose the upgrade by unlocking the tank, before unlocking the B barrell package in the Caernarvon.

Crazy thought perhaps, but it's a 45,000xp experiment to find out.

UPDATE:

You can now go hull down with the new Conqueror turret buff from 152mm to 254mm. 

 

PRAISE BE!

Well, assuming we get confirmation from one of the GD threads.

Or when I was bothering Raibot.

Or when I sent a DM on twitter.

 

 

They seem conspiratorially silent

sorry I aint following. I think.  Ok so if you finish off the tank. Lets see the Centurion Mk. III turret, 20 pdr Type B, and Rolls Royce M120 are used on the Conqueror Mk. III package. So really you only research the FV214A suspension and SR C42 radio if. The radio isnt already reseached probably is. Anyways you will have not much to go through its just that gun, turret, and Griffon engine which you will need to focus on. That will take a little bit of time but not a century from my experience. Been a while since that grind so im sorry im not that much help.

I finished up the Caernarvon with the top gun and it did decrease the cost. there was a free package with the B barrell and then the Conqueror Mk II turret for 28,000 exp. Leaving the tracks and radio to get to the middle package. then the big grind to the 120mm gun, 158,000 xp for all the tier XI stuff on the tank.

The new turret buff to 254mm really helps. B barrell at 5.6 sec reload I think is nive but damage only 225 avg is a hard fight for 158,000 xp grind.

Wassup Ashen! So I just started back on my grind up to the 215b. Right now I'm on the Black Prince and 90k away from the Caernarvon. Any tips on playing that tier 8? I heard it was a tough grind.

7 degress. Adequate but dont try anything more than an incline.

Cant say that new turret really screws the one good point of the Caernarvon, a good turret.

Unlocked the Conqueror and free XP'd to the L1A1. My god. It's so beautiful.
