View Full Version : about 1-3 and expedtions

09-11-2014, 06:12 PM
So I just unlocked the stage 1-4 but it's still too hard for me in fact one of my ships almost sunk Kuma-chan luckily they missed. T_T
Anyhow this is my current status :

What should I do from now?
And about expedtions I keep getting around 30 or 50 resources only is that how it's supposed to be? I even had 1 of them sparkling and each one had the regular morale. I had 6 ships on the expedition is that how you're supposed to do it or just use around 3-4 to get a higher chance?

For 1-4 try building a CVL(300/30/400/300) or level your Chiyoda to 15 and remodel her to a CVL, you will need one to clear the map with ease as the Wo Class and Nu Class will deal heavy damage to you otherwise. You can also clear the Akagi quest (B10) to get her, she will help you immensely in your efforts to clear 1-4 and any other map. You should also consider building a Battleship or Heavy Cruiser as you are fairly low on firepower running just DD and CL.

Spam expedition 5 with 1CL and 3DD to help with the resource income. As for sparkling you need all the ships in that fleet to be sparkling for it to work, for now just send them with normal morale.

Use BB, much easier to clear that map. Almost sunk? What do you mean, you keep going even though she is red?

No, there's condition for each expedition, try read this for more detail Expedition - Kancolle Wiki (http://kancolle.wikia.com/wiki/Expedition)
Deploying more ships than needed will only cost more fuel & ammo to resupply the fleet.

As for sparkling expedition, I don't really know, too lazy to sparkle them, lol.

HydraGoliath I tried crafting for BBs 3 times already and got 3 CLs. as of now I'm crafting a CA hopefully.
ah so you only need 4 ships. I see thanks and expedition number 5 on the 1st list?
Anomalyzer no, when I used the compass I got to route 'I' in 1-4 and they almost got her. I didn't even make it to the retreat and night battle option yet.

Yes, the one on the first list.

Try to get two CA if possible, they are strong enough to use in place of BB and are cheaper to use.

The first list on the Wiki Entry shows what you get for the expedition.

Exp 5, as already mentioned, is good for getting fuel and ammo.
When you get the 3rd fleet you can run Exp 2 for buckets (and some ammo) or Exp 6 for bauxite.

The third list on the Wiki Entry is important, since it shows which ships you need at least for every expedition to finish it successfully. It also lists the minimum flagship level of the expedition fleet. If only one requirement is not met you won't finish the expedition successfully and will get nothing (except some xp for your girls)

Sparkling is not really useful on expedition lower than 4h, since you have ressource costs for the sparkling which you need to get back.
Look at the Expeditions on World 2 for over night expeditions, or when you are away for longer times.

Janoski 3 tires is nothing. Try at least 20 times, you should get at least one BB. BB for first world is bit of an overkill, although it's good to have the second shelling phase.

As for sparkling, don't bother for short expeditions or ones that give little resources. Frankly, I never bothered with sparking so far. Once or twice I had some ships sparkled from PvP, sent them on overnight expedition (4/4 sparkled) and nothing happened.

HydraGoliath Got it.
@Nozomi (http://kancolle.himeuta.net/forums/members/nozomi/) I see so what I did was right when I was about to sleep and ran a 4:00 expedtion but got nothing sadly. I ran it with Tatsuta alone sparkling and I thought that would do it. but that wasn't the case . also bookmarked the wiki entry.
@Argho (http://kancolle.himeuta.net/forums/members/argho/) I see that's why it's pretty hard. I'll try to craft more when I get more resources.

If your ships aren't already max modernized for armor firepower and torpedo power I'd make sure you do that.
