This Update, we’re introducing a special currency—Winter Coins—which offer one more way to acquire in-game holiday rewards. You can get Winter Coins in the following ways:
Some missions of the Update offer Winter Coins as a reward, and you can see the exact rewards on offer for each in the corresponding tab. One of the most profitable missions is the weekly Escaping the Labyrinth one, which is available to complete with the pinnacle of current campaign—HMS Minotaur. Another way you can get more Winter Coins is by obtaining Windroses: one-time rewards for winning the first battle or obtaining 300 Base XP in a battle playing Tier VII Tech Tree ships and Tier VI and VII Premium ships during the Update.
Participating in the Arena seasons
Arena rewards are distributed after each season ends, and this Update brings three of them with Legendary ships to fight with. Each season, you can earn up to 850 Winter Coins.
Some of the bundles that can be obtained from the Store include various sums of Winter Coins.
And this is how you can spend those:
Royal Navy battleship Lion
Winter Coin-exclusive British Tier VII Premium battleship. Largely a development of the King George V class, this battleship is bigger, better armored, and equipped with modern 16-inch (406 mm) guns. Lion handles well and offers solid performance with both of the shell options at her disposal. She's available for 25,000 Winter Coins. Please note: Lion cannot be obtained for free by our estimations, and at the very least, you will need to acquire the Admiralty Backing and complete the campaign during the 5th week of the Update while also placing in the top bracket of all the Arena seasons.
Commander Guises are a completely new entity and basically offer alternate appearances for your Commanders. They include the following cosmetic effects: A signal flare for instances when you use the horn, colorful tracers, and a special visual effect for Legendary skill activation. There are two choices this holiday season, available for 2,500 Winter Coins each: Miss Santa, applicable to British and American Commanders; Snow Maiden for Soviet and European Commanders.
