HOWTO: Grind Vehicles using War Bonds

warthunder 6 - HOWTO: Grind Vehicles using War Bonds

To get a vehicle through War Bonds, you must do the following:

 

I. Level up "Shop Levels"

Vehicles require Shop Level V, which means you need to complete 40 Daily Tasks. You can get up to two Daily Tasks a day (Actually, the tasks expire amd reset every 22 hours — see below), so that will take about 20 days at a minimum.

There are 5 "Shop Levels", I through V. You start at I and complete the assigned Daily Takss to move to the next Shop Level as follows:

  • 5 Tasks => Shop Level II
  • 12 Tasks => Shop Level III
  • 22 Tasks => Shop Level IV
  • 40 Tasks => Shop Level V

The Shop Level resets back to I after each month (although there is a week or so after the end of the month where you can still get the previous month's rewards).

 

II. Accumulate War Bonds

You can get 150 War Bonds a day from the Daily Tasks (50 from the first Daily Task, 100 from the second). You will typically need between 2,700 and 3,300 for a vehicle, but as the War Bonds themselves do not expire at the end of the month you can get a small stockpile month to month (note however that it caps at 3,600 War Bonds).

The "Daily" Task expire/reset time is 22 hours after you login. So for instance if you log in at 6:00 PM on the first day, that set of 2 Daily Tasks will expire at 4:00 PM the second day and you will get two new ones then. However, note that it is necessary to login to get the new Daily Tasks and start the 22 hour timer. So, if you login later than 4:00 PM the second day, then the 22 hour clock starts from your actual time of login. For example, if on the second day you login at 5:30 PM, then next new set of tasks will be available from 3:30 PM on the third day.

You can spend SL to select a new Daily Task if you do not like the one you have drawn. It starts at 1,000 SL for the firstm 5,000 SL, then 10,000 SL and up to 50,000 SL to pick a new Daily Task.

The most War Bonds you can accumulate in a given month is @4,500, if you get both tasks each day. However, if you work the 22-hour reset timer religiously, you can squeeze about another 500 bonds out of that, for @5,000 War Bonds in a typical month.

 

III. Accumulate Medals

Medals are used to unlock certain items in higher tiers of the store (some items are unlocked just by having sufficent shop level and/or war bonds, others need a certain shop level, war bonds, AND a certain number of Medals).

You get Medals by completing Special Tasks, which you purchase from the War Bonds Shop for 30 War Bonds.
When you purchase the Special Task you choose between one of six mode choices (one of AB or RB, for Air, Naval, or Ground). These Special Tasks do NOT expire at the end of the day, so you can work on them over a period of time, but they also do NOT count towards the task completion to level up the shop. And once you complete a Special Task, you can immediately purchase the next one for 30 War Bonds — there is no wait period for the next Special Task as there are with the Daily Tasks.

The Special Task completion also generates an award. In my experience, most of the time the award is 25k SL (this is backed up by the right-most chart in this post by /u/Horse_Milk https://www.reddit.com/r/Warthunder/comments/a6um7l/graph_heres_what_60_days_of_trophies_looks_like/ )

The Medals expire after each month. However, there is a cool thing about Medals: they do NOT get used up when you purchase an item from the store ! So, once you get 3 Medals, you can purchase multiple items that need 3 Medals assuming you have enough War Bonds.

 

Note that you can pay to change the Daily or Special Tasks if you want to try a different one. The Special Task and the Daily Task cost to change are tied together. So if you pay 1,000 SL to change your Daily Task, then it bumps the cost for the next change up to 5,000 SL, and this 5k SL cost will be what is needed if you want to change either your Daily Task or your Special Task again that day. However, the change costs will reset to 1,000 SL the next day.

Read:  WHAT THE!??

 

Observations:

  1. The Daily Tasks and Special Tasks are not difficult (see my below list of Special Tasks and Daily Tasks I completed for my vehicle purchase — note that I was doing this in Air AB).
  2. Do not be afraid to spend SL to get a chance at a better task. The next Daily Task you draw is not necessarily harder; it can be easier. I was especially quick to pull that trigger when assigned a Daily Task involving Assists, or ones that had a Win condition along with a somewhat tough task, etc. I would usually end up with a Daily Task of "destroy n vehicles", which I would gladly accept.
