View Full Version : LSC or Normal Construction?

08-12-2014, 08:16 PM
There are some ships (namely Zuikaku and Nagato in my case) that seem to sit right on the line between the two types of construction, where they're possible from either. Is it worth it to spend the extra resources on LSC for the presumably greater chance, or go with the cheaper normal construction to get more attempts for the same amount of resources?

I'd just stick to farming, but Zuikaku seems to drop off very few maps, and ones that don't look easy to farm.

Generally, you do LSC for ships like Taihou and Yamato. You can get those ships as "failures" to craft those ships, but if you're just looking for those two ships and don't care about the LSC exclusive ships then it will be cheaper to do construction or just farm maps. 5-4 and 5-2 are actually pretty farmable.

Do Normal Construction. You basically spend 10-14x the resources aiming to get the ship via LSC failure. Unless you're looking for LSC exclusives (Maruyu, Akitsumaru, Yamato-class, Taihou, Bismarck), I would advice against it.

Thanks for the advice. I guess it seems kind of silly to ask that, now that I think of it.
As for farming, I can't even clear 5-2, and now isn't really the time for me to go back and try it again.

F50Grunt 300/300/600/600 is proven to give Zuikaku :D

I had Zuikaku from 350/30/600/350 and maybe Kaga too. They were my first CV from crafting and I didnt even know that they were rare lol. You should only LSC if you want the exclusive ships. And farming for them is only good if you can do it easily with a boss fixed route and for the xp.

Let's take 300/300/600/600 recipe.

The wikiwiki says that there's 18.8% chance of getting a CV and 52.3% of CVL. There are six CVs that can appear from this recipe, and even if we're to assume that they all get buitl with the same chance (we all know they don't), you have about 3.13% chance of getting exactly Zuikaku. That'd probably mean that - assuming if you run the recipe every day, you'll probably get a Zuikaku in about a month.

If that sounds like the chance you're going to take, go ahead. I personally think farming is a much more likely way to get a specific ship but it's up to each player.

F50Grunt I got Zuikaku from 300/300/600/600.

I think normal construction is better since LSC still has chances to screw you and you'll lose a hell of a lot more resources. The CV LSC recipe is 10x what the regular construction is.

Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
