Hey guys! 

 

I'm mainly a medium tank player so I will be investing my 5k bonds into equipment for them. My favorite tanks in the game right now are E50 and AMX 30 prot. Right now I'm thinking about whether to get Innovative rammer or improved V.stabs. I very much appreciate gunhandling in my mediums, more so than DPM, but is 5% increase in vstab efficiency really worth it? What do you guys think?

Having the same issue, can't decide on anything, perhaps I should just HODL...

I bought a rammer but it was a waste. I still have 11k bonds left. The effect is barely noticeable. I'm gonna keep mine cause WG will surely introduce new ways to spend em as they said on WG Fest.

Due to the large investment needed to buy the improved equipment & the relative cheapness of the standard equipment (cheap compared to bonds that is), you best invest it in something that can give you a constant advantage.

 

With above in mind, Improved vents & Improved optics feel like the best investments for bond equipment.

- Optics because being able to see further & negate camo better is always handy & it often comes down to meters when locating high camo targets. + second cheapest equipment (4K bonds instead of 5K)

- Vents, due to the continuous general bonus to tank performance. Not a bonus that will save you every battle, but can be the little nudge to make your tank perform just that bit smoother over the long term. Main advantage is that it gives a small bonus to a large variety of tank stats. Also second largest relative bonus (5% to 7.5%)

 

Special note for the improved repairkit: while 40% track repair sounds awesome (and can be) it CANNOT be demounted like the regular repairkit & instead needs 200 bonds to unequip.

 

Improved Rammer is imo not a good investment, standard is cheaper & the difference will be hardly noticeable with the improved one. 

Vstabs do sound better, faster aiming is after all neat, but don't expect miracles (20% vs 25%), but can still see a case for picking this, slightly less exposure time & slightly better snapshotting abilities are a good thing.

Okay guys i've decided to buy Improved V.stabs and use it on my amx 30 prot which does have kind of potatoish gunhandling. My current setup on amx 30 is Vstab+Optics+Rammer, since i've both Situational awareness and recon skill, im thinking of replacing the Optics with vents and the normal vstab with improved vstab, I'll still have 445m view range, I know it good to have as much as possible, but I find this an acceptable compromise.

If I ever get enough bonds for improved equipment, I will most likely get better optics and mount them on the Patton for completely ridiculous view range.

Adding improved Vstab and changing optics for vents has made a SIGNIFICANT difference, it feels like a whole new tank, I can use it's DPM and chew through people without the gunhandling getting in the way, insane! Still have 448m viewrange as well    ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡° )

Don't spend it. simple as that. If you can't help but spend spend spend then go for optics or rammer. Two equipment that matter and can't be made obsolete through RNG. Although I have my conspiracies. I made the mistake of getting imp. Stabs. for my 907. If RNG wants to f*** your accuracy it will do just as badly as without improved stabs. Enjoy.

Would rather go Imp. Rammer instead of Stab for the 907

Am I missing something here?

I currently have 1,395 bonds from doing WG's stupid daily mission thing.

But when I look at say the "Vent Purge +2.5%" for a M103, it's only 12 bonds...

 

What are people spending thousands of bonds on???

Thats a directive, it is only for 1 battle. The equipment is forever.

Agreed with Exoduz, keeping 'em.

If anything, I'd buy the tookit, because it's 20% more effective, than the original, or the OPtics.

Just this second found it, thanks for the help :)

I'm pissed that it's the same price for tier 1 as it is for tier X

have a little over 5k bonds also now, but saving them till they announce what tanks you can get with them:

 

'we’re considering making customization items and vehicles available with Bonds'
