Has anyone plotted out the ship knowledge slot upgrade grind route to 1st rates/Indiaman?

If not, then for example:

To be able to upgrade 3 slots and above in a Surprise you need to have previously completed 4 slots in a Renomee.

 

Unlock Basic Cutter slot 3 to unlock Privateer slot 3. (Testbed Patch 9.99 Hotfix 7) 

Unlock Basic Cutter slot 3 to unlock Pickle slot 3.

Unlock Pickle slot 3 to unlock Snow slot 3 

Unlock Snow slot 3 to unlock Brig slot 3

Unlock Snow slot 3 to unlock Cerberus slot 3

Unlock Cerberus slot 3 to unlock Frigate slot 3 

Unlock Renomee slot 4 to unlock Surprise slot 3. (Testbed Patch 9.99 Hotfix 7) 

Unlock Frigate slot 3 to unlock Essex slot 3

Unlock Frigate slot 5 to unlock Agamemnon slot 3

Unlock Endyminion slot 4 to unlock Constitution slot 3. (Testbed Patch 9.99 Hotfix 7) 

Unlock Agamemnon slot 4 to unlock 3rd Rate slot 3 (Testbed Patch 9.99 Hotfix 7) 

Unlock Pavel slot 4 to unlock Santi slot 2 (37400xp) (Testbed Patch 9.99 Hotfix 7) 

 

All 4th slots appear not to require any earlier unlocks.

Anyone got any other bits for the grind info jigsaw? If so post below and I will update this front page as we go for general use.

Or the devs could just list it out for us :P

Santi 2nd slot (37400xp) needs slot 4 pavel

3rd rate 3rd slots (42840xp!) needs slot 4 aggie

Aggie slot 3 (21750) needs frigate slot 5

I figure you will have made 10 rear admiral/curse if not more by the time you unlock all slots on all ships!

or just quit.

I plan on grinding to navy brig if that, maybe a rattlesnake, and then be done.  If I go that far.  I dont have the time to throw at this game like I did last year, and I dont have the patience to waste time on mindless grinding because I want the slots unlocked on my ship.

The problem is not to unlock the slot .. the problem is that when you go to have it unlocked they tell you that there will be a wipe or some change on that .. and what you have done is not worth anything ... that is the real problem ..
  As it is an early access your work does not count .. imagine that you take 1 year to reach a santisima and when you are going to "have it" conditions tell you .. will see a wipe ... lol many players will tell you is a game Alpha you can not complain

Two slots are supposed to be the norm.  Don't expect every vessel to be "perfect."

PvP yields 3x the xp. Do the math. you get those slots pretty fast acting support brig to frigates and overall being a pain up their sterns.

Yep. Hope to see them grouped by rate or sail plan. Running most of those at 3 - 4 slots atm. Niagara and Mercury running at 3 slots are hell decent.

When I bought the game it said, up front, this would happen. Not that it might happen, not that it was a possibility, but that there would be wipes periodically. I expected more than this sooner. Didn't you get the memo?

You can unlock the first 3 upgrade slots, but you'll need to unlock earlier ships to unlock the last 4-5.

Think you can do whatever, simply the ship knowledge is limited to three expertises. To fully unlock mastery ( five slots ) one must learn whatever ships are indicated in the locked slot. It is a odd system, granted but also provides much needed variety.
