Put your always heavily damaged ship at the top. However this increases the chances of the heavy hitters being taiha at the night battle before their turn comes. Also make sure to fully maximize you supports for taking out the imps so that your ships will focus on Artillery Imp and DJ hime.
Wow, done in my second try. This time I used boss node support only. Fuck the normal node support. Didn't trigger at the node where my Sendai got OHKO'd (did I mention I sparkled her? lololol fucking aimbot AI) and when they do trigger their shots mostly miss. I dunno if I got lucky or what but clearing it felt easier than I thought.
Nah, I definitely got lucky. Boss appeared when gauge was at 587 (I checked with plastic ruler plus math skillz and confirmed with KC3 Kai) instead of dumbshit cannon imp + boss node support triggered + all ships green health at boss node + Atago shoosting boss at night eventhough she was flagship triggering critical. How many virgins must I now sacrifice for my luck to continue?
Also, yeah I put a CA as flagship this time instead of the last ship slot as advised by many. They used to get oneshot'd right off the bat during shelling phase. I also brought along another CA this time to be placed at the last slot as insurance in case things go horribly wrong. One thing I find surprising was that my fleet wiped out the boss planes during airstrike phase without AACI or fighter planes. Must be that superior Maya anti-air going to work. Add that to my lucky streak.
I definitely maximized my boss support. I ran Nagato, Mutsu, Akagi, Kaga and two DDs. (You know what, I just realized I had Hiryuu and Shokaku sparkled and ready for boss support but somehow I forgot about them...) My boss support alone cost me 194 fuel and 412 ammo per expedition. Used it twice. And of course there's the cost of sparkling every ship I used. Ya know, sparkling BBs and CVs at 1-1 hurts so bad cuz it feels extremely wasteful lol.
Dude, had you lost your mind when you dumped 40k+ resources at E2? Did you take breaks in between?
I did not take breaks. I had the least luck in all the players since when I was at my golden moment, DJ Hime did not show up 2 times causing me to do everything the hard way. No sparkles Support Fleets all chuuha because It was a compromise, they hit harder when in chuuha for some reason. Support fleets were golden too.
Boss support fleet took out two imps, easily killed the first one. Art imp got knocked out during tropedoes phase and Myoukou and Kongou took it home. they were last in my fleet. Node I was dangerous to me than Node F. Node F was easy once I got it right.
I gotta agree with you about CVLs. I had one in my fleet during my runs at depleting the boss gauge and they helped a lot in providing additional firepower to ensure I reach the boss in one piece. When I ditched the CVL for a CA in my final run, for an additional T3 boss killer, I felt unsafe and at the mercy of RNG. I'll try your heavy fleet if I ever complete the event and want to farm E2 node F. Any rare drops from your runs through node F though?
How far into the event are you now? Is E3 a tough one?
Also, have you spent real money on this game yet? All my life I've played F2P games like these casually and I have never spent real money on any of them... Until later tonight when I get home. I'm gonna fucking buy me some extra fucking ship slots.
E-3 is easy. I got Shimakaze, Isokaze and Mutsu from E-2.
I haven't spent real money on it yet, I will someday. E-3 is the easiest map in the event, I'm pretty sure of that. Plus, you could get U-511 easily. You know, she has the WG we really needed to beat DJ Hime. Farmimng for her is recommended for the future. No last dance in E-3, you can pretty much ignore BabaaHime and atleast get an A rank. But to make sure you're in the advantage, use a really good boss support. Just use your E-2 boss support
Whoa Isokaze, nice. Why is Ancient Destroyer Princess called 'BabaaHime'? Yeah it definitely is easy, I did E3 in 5 runs. First two runs with ships that had leftover sparkles from before had to stop at preboss node because of super torpedos from PT Imps that OHKOs any DD in sight. Next three runs I got lucky with them and I was done. My CAVs became carriers and airstriked the shit out of the enemy. I always went to night battle because I wanted an S rank so I could deplete the gauge quicker. No support epedition was used.
Do I need Wurfs for E4 onwards? My main goal is getting Iowa and I don't wanna waste any unecessary resources if I don't need to. If Wurfs are needed then I guess there's no choice. I also thought I should farm for an Akizuki class for AACI capabilities in the next few maps.
Cool, I got her from E2 as well. Where are you at now? I haven't touched E4but I'm looking at it on the event page and... the preboss nodes have either a carrier princess or a battleship princess. PREBOSS. I am scared.
Just follow the guides, have reppus for LBAS and focus it at Node F if you are using a Carrier TF. Calculate the numbers of your map gauge so you don;t have to go through the hellish Last dance where the first node always snipes two ships and if you survive the normal nides and get to CV Hime. You're pretty much screwed if you get to her in last dance. I had to turn my back at Houshou for that map.
I farmed E3 and E2 a bit last night. Got nothing from E3 but got Isokaze on my second run at E2. Still need to go back there for the Akizuki class DDs. Also depleted the gauge for E4 and on my final rage run Tokitsukaze dropped at preboss. I still haven't fully depleted it though. It feels like the closer I get to depleting the gauge the higher the difficulty of the enemies I encounter. On my first run, the torpedo bombers friggin oneshot BB Hime, and I was like 'heh this E4 ain't too bad'. And then by the last attempt, shit was getting stupid. Tsu class wipes out my fucking planes. Red health enemies oneshot my poor ships. These threepieces of shit plays super dodgeball. But at least something good happened and that is Tokitukaze.
On one run I was tempted to sink my Chitose seaplane tender at preboss because I was so close and because she was only level 22. Only reason I didn't is because of all the stats I've given her through modernization.
@Mytsywhich sounds like absolute bullshit lol. i wish my ships are like that. what does luck do for ships that aren't DDs anyway? increase evasion? increase crit chance? increase accuracy? cuz if so then I might start maruyuing my BBs and CAs.
I didn't drop out because I raged quit or something. I dropped out because I knew I will do something bad and that my resources is hurting. I am pretty sure 33 buckets is not enough for the rest of the maps.
Keep at it man. I hope you get Teruzuki soon. I too need to farm AACI destroyers after this. And Kashima, now she's a ship I will highly recommend to any red blooded teitoku.
E6 is more RNG bullshit. You have a chance to get sent off course just before the boss (at least for the route I took). And the airstrike nuke is OP AF. Not sure how consistent it is though.
Whoa, you got Akashi?!? All my runs at 1-5 and she never appeared. Can't say anything about 2-5 since I have yet to beat it. At least you got U-511 and a WGWhatever rocket now. Congrats on your ship's remodel, I need to get some of mine done soon after the event is over.
Yeah, I'm doing a last ditch effort in hopes of getting some rare drops out of E2 in these final hours minutes. Your 'fuck it' way is effective though. Akagi/Kaga is perfect with their huge slot size. Being able to use a full size carrier really makes this way easier. I went with the suggested FBB and node F it was still hard as heck.
Got one Yuu and no 401. Probably because I never tried hard after I got my first yuu.
I got as far as E-6 last dance. I was confident I could beat it(no debuff) given the time and resources but sadly my resources plummeted down to zero. Fuel and ammo was easy to get but bauxite was hard.
I think I did good but I think that If I tried hard, I would have gotten Iowa.
Great job, Mysty. Congrats! You're so lucky to have that many Yuus. Did you scrap her before the next one to make up for the altered droprate or do you actually have all four right now? Ahh, I want Amagi! I got two Kawakazes which I don't want almost back to back trying to farm Amagi. I already got Akitsushima from E7 so I don't have to farm dreaded world 6. A surprise which dropped for me at E7 was *drumroll* Mizuho! I got her just hours before the event ended. Her droprate was lower than Akitsushima so I never thought I'd get her but I just sent my fleet there anyway because what the hell E7 was the easiest to farm. Do you have Katsuragi?
Nah I don't have Katsurag nor Unryuu, neither do I have Akitsushima.
Imma try to get everyone in the Summer evento.
Congratulations to you too Cantkorre, I had my doubts at first whether you could truly finish the event. I scrapped all of them except one(I don't really need the FaT that much.), and they all came one by another. Like 1st sortie Yuu, 2nd Yuu, 3rd Yuu, 4th Yuu. What irks me the most is not having my god damn Yamato Nadeshiko, but I'll settle for the Amagi now. I started with 30k resources aswell.
Every ASW ship is capable for MVP grinding on World4-3... BBV's and CVL's as well... As long as they are equpped with ASW equipment... FBB, CV, CA and other ships incapable of ASW is not good for this map...
