Nagato drops in 3-2, 3-3, 3-4, 4-4 and 5-2 boss nodes. There isn't really a 'good' place to get her. She's rare and it's all up to luck.

I personally got my Nagato from a default LSC. Her and Mutsu are very rare drops so you'd probably have better luck building them :kongou_grin:

Mutsu drops later on 5-4 which is a very easy map to grind for drops. For Nagato the map farming options are very limited like Leyana suggested but 5-2 is probably your best bet because of 100% boss branching and you can also hunt Taigei there. Most people just get her from LSC trying to get Yamato/Musashi at some point, or early BB crafts if they're lucky.

Leyana i kinda hope that i can get mutsu or nagato as a drop from 3-4 boss :(

I got Mutsu from LSC, Nagato from Boss Node in world 5.

fdjw88 To be honest, 3-4 is a stupid, pain in the ass map to farm because there are no guaranteed branching rules to get to the boss. I say go for 4-4 or 5-2.

thanks for the suggestions, i will try to get through chapter 3 as fast as possible, probably try to get to the boss twice per day :D

I would say E-3 since I'm getting a bunch of them yesterday (4 copies each within the day, imagine that). But the event was over so..

I won't really bank on getting them as drops. IIRC, I haven't got them as drops in normal maps since I started. As they mentioned, you can try boss drops in 3-4 though getting to the boss every sortie was not guaranteed.

I acquired both of them first via construction with default battleship recipe.

3-3 is okay

I got her from a normal construction with 400/30/600/30, might just be RNG playing around though.

Mutsu is a drop from 3-3-A. It's not very hard to grind there the same way one would 3-2-A. I did so myself for a couple of days and nabbed both Mutsu and Imuya in the process. Just be aware that you're not totally free from damage; it's just that the enemy fleet is fairly easy to route with blue planes, CLTs and a decent submarine. Feel free to bring a flagship you'd like levelled while you grind, but not if you lack the immediate power to sink most of the enemies during the air strike and initial torpedo phases.

Nagato is much harder, though. You can check the Wiki for the nodes (usually boss ones) on which she drops, or just plan to get her via LSC at some point (probably when trying to build for Yamato or Musashi). There sadly isn't a very reliable method of grinding for her -- people were even grinding the E-3 boss for just that purpose; Nagato is simply a rare and powerful ship. Good luck!

I think 3-3 is the most reasoable, given that the OP has just unlocked 3-4. 3-4 is a few steps up the difficulty compared to 3-3, so it wouldn't be a bad idea to clear 3-3 some more times, try to get Nagato or Mutsu, and level the ships at the same time. (And Maikaze is 3-3 exclusive as well, in case you haven't found her yet.)

And as Hatsushimo mentioned, Mutsu drops on all nodes from 3-3 and 3-4. Repeating the first battle there isn't a bad idea either, 3-4 is a bit riskier since you might be taken southeast from the first branching point and face enemy BBs from the first battle, but it may be worthwhile since 3-4 is (AFAIK) the only map where Hiryuu can be dropped from non-boss nodes.

Got Nagato from my latest 4k/6k/6k/3k/20 attempt for Bismarck... however trying multiple regular BB constructions is probably a smarter idea

I got 3 Mutsu from regular BB construction while trying to get Kongou-class (and got only one of them). If you're still missing some other BB, I think it might be better to try constructing them first. It can be much cheaper than farming maps and definitely than LSC.
