View Full Version : Bismarck/Taihou/Yamato/Musashi Recipe?

08-29-2014, 12:40 AM
I'm kind of curious -- it's a weird one, but there is a recipe for LSC (3500/3500/6000/6000/20) which has been known to have a chance of yielding both Yamato-class battleships and Taihou. Given that the standard Yamato recipe yields Bismarck, has anyone ever tried that hybrid recipe with Z1/Z3 as a flagship? I made my first attempt today (Maruyu), but I figured I'd check around here if anyone had experience with it. The Japanese don't appear to have done much with this recipe with a German flagship, sadly.

Haven't tried it with a z1/z3 flagship, but I use 3500/3500/6000/6000 to craft Taihou. However, I haven't gotten a Yamato-class from it. I would imagine getting a Bismarck would be hard because you add so many CV and CVL to the reward pool.

Actually it's not very wise to do a hybrid LSC. Reason is that hybrid recipe gives you everything (say max everything), and everything means that all ships chances might be balanced and the chances to get the LSC exclusive BBs and CV might end up lower. Though the toal % for LSC exclusive ships may be slightly higher (since default recipe should give you every non-LSC ships), but no one really bother trying that out and waste their resources since it's easier to focus on regaining 2 or 3 types than all 4 of them.

But in the end it's still RNG.

Hatsushimo Do 3.5/3.5/6/6/20 for Taihou. 4/6/6/3/20 for Yamato/Musashi/Bismarck

I guess so, too. I was mostly curious if a recipe that can cover so many LSC bases is possible -- I know for a fact from Japanese sources (even saw a video) that Yamato-class can come from that recipe, but I don't know enough about Bismarck's requirements. I'm gonna bet you it's possible, but yeah, the pool is so large that the chances will be really tiny.
I agree with you, honestly. I tried it today for kicks (and I don't mind much at all getting Maruyu), but I'm starting to think it'd be better to "specialise" with my recipe.
Well, that is the recipe I'm using, and Taihou is my primary aim right now. I was more-or-less wondering if anyone could confirm that Bismarck is indeed a drop I could get. If so, I'd set the flag to Z3 just to add another rare ship to the pool. I hope that's not too confusing. I mean, I'm already expending those same resources, so why not give myself a chance with another ship I've yet to acquire? If my primary goal was one of the BBs, of course I would use a recipe that has a higher success rate. >w<; That's just logical!

I recommend 4k/6k/6k/2k 20 for LSC BBs... reducing the baux count eliminates the chances for Taihou, but it eliminates the chances for the other CV and CVLs to appear, reducing the reward pool to close to what you're aiming..

Hatsushimo Nothing on the JP wiki says that Bismarck will appear with the Taihou recipe.

I think 4/2/5/7/20 for Taihou is better. That's how I got her. I can't speak for the BBs though. I also agree with hybrid recipes sucking.

I think you guys are probably right. I'll just specialise. Thanks for the input. I tend to enjoy hybrid recipes (or anything that can produce multiple positive results, like many of the event stages' boss drops), but I suppose there's a reason that the main ones are so well-tested. They simply seek out the desired ship and pull them more quickly.

Though Leyana, the hybrid recipe doesn't seem to get much testing any more, so I just figured the lack of information was more that people hadn't given it a shot with Z1 or Z3 set as the flagship. I looked on multiple Kankore blogs as well but no one mentioned anything one way or the other. To me it seems possible, just so obscure (and probably not worth the resources) that no one had even given it a try.

But no matter, really. It's not changing my chances one way or the other.
