View Full Version : Does anyone remember their first drop/build?

09-15-2014, 01:54 PM
One of 提督業も忙しい/KCV's biggest gifts to me so far is the ability to sort my ships by ID. I've learnt some interesting stuff about my fleet -- as it turns out, my first build was Tenryuu and my first drop was indeed Hatsushimo, followed by Wakaba (something that is just so satisfying to learn three months later).

Does anyone else specifically remember which ships appeared for them first? Did you end up keeping them and using them forever (even just for expeditions)? Or did you just get Shirayuki again to add to the one you already got from the first quest?

09-15-2014, 02:01 PM
Oh I still remember! First build Hatsuharu, still active in expeditions, first drop is Ikazuchi.... I'm sorry so sinking you...

09-15-2014, 02:13 PM
1st drop was Kasumi, not sure about 1st craft..

09-15-2014, 02:13 PM
First crafted ship was Nagatsuki, who is still happily(?) slaving away on expeditions for me, even though she's a bit behind many of my other Mutsuki class girls in levels and usage.

Can't remember which of my girls was the first drop I got, athough it was definitely a destroyer, as I had a weird bit of luck with crafting and had about a dozen of them before I got my first non-DD (Kiso)

Oh and with the exception of Fubuki, who apparently has so little presence I didn't notice I didn't have her for several months, I've kept every first time aquisition in my fleet, so sorting by "New" makes for an interesting timeline back through my Kancolle history hehe. :D

For some reason I thought there was already a thread like this one but I tried looking for it and I couldn't find anything sooo I guess I was wrong.
So yea, first construction was Tenryuu, then got Ayanami as my first drop. Both my starter (Sazanami) and Tenryuu are doing expeditions along with the Shirayuki I got from that quest; also Ayanami is getting close to 99.

09-15-2014, 02:15 PM
My first craft was Aoba,....
Then Hibiki was my first drop.
My first and only sunk ship was Kisaragi.

09-15-2014, 02:18 PM
no, I don't remember

09-15-2014, 02:22 PM
kuavera Fufu, I did the same and was surprised myself. It seems like something that would have come up in the past.

That's really cute, though. Is Ayanami your favourite like Hatsushimo is mine (just going by the avatar)? It's especially funny that Tenryuu was your first build as well.

Huh. This is what I thought as well. Weird.

09-15-2014, 02:27 PM
I don't rmbr at all.

09-15-2014, 02:30 PM
kuavera I think it was in the old forum...

Well, maybe not my most favourite ship but definitely top 5 or something. I love her kai ni and she destroyed everything during the past event so that might have also helped, and yeah, Tenryuu seems to be a pretty common first build for some reason.
laisy It could be but I wasn't even in the old forum so idk.

09-15-2014, 02:33 PM
First build was Sazanami which was easy to remember, being one of the starter ships and all. (Chose Inazuma so no duplicate)
First drop was apparently Ooshio. Neither are being used anymore but I'll probably keep Sazanami around for a good while. EDIT: Shirayuki was a quest reward lol

I remember my first two CAs Myoukou (22) and Choukai (25) extremely well because I got them before I even had a CL. Myoukou's in use as my strongest CA while Choukai's a backup at like lv25 or 30 or something. Yamashiro (36) first BB, not-best-but-still-useful BBV.

09-15-2014, 02:49 PM
There was a thread in the old forums about "Who's your first _____".

First build was Yuubari, she's my second highest levelled ship, and first drop is Hatsushimo who's sitting at level 7.

09-15-2014, 02:54 PM
My first build was Jintsuu, was absolutely monstrous for me in the beginning. First drop if I remember correctly was that accursed Arashio who dropped for me literally every node.

09-15-2014, 02:55 PM
My first craft was Isuzu , still works in expedition team.
My first drop was Isonami , lost in merging.

09-15-2014, 03:02 PM
I don't recall. Heck I don't even recall the exact date I won the lottery and start the game.


09-15-2014, 03:06 PM
First build is jintsuu and use her till now for main fleet! First drop is inazuma and currently with her to clear 3-2

09-15-2014, 03:07 PM
naka then tone then suzuya lol. beginners luck they said

as for drops, no ideas there.

my first build was Ushio and my first drop was Ooshio...

09-15-2014, 03:09 PM
Well, sorting my ships by age, Akebono's my oldest ship, and if I recall correctly, the first I built. Kako's one of the first that I built. I'm not sure whether Shirayuki came from build or drop.


09-15-2014, 03:09 PM
First drop was Arare.
First craft was Kitakami.

I still have them both, but Arare has mostly been on the sidelines. Kitakami as well, but that goes all my CLT's except Kiso. Still, she sits at 97 and is among one of my oldest ships in the fleet.

09-15-2014, 03:15 PM
I constructed kirishima as my first non tutorial build. I surprisingly didn't get a drop until then. So funny coincidence.

09-15-2014, 03:21 PM
panda Shirayuki probably came from the first composition quest, right? o; Though if that were the case, you would've scrapped or otherwise gotten rid of your second ship...

09-15-2014, 03:23 PM

Oh, yeah, that makes sense. While that's possible, I suspect Kako was my second ship.

09-15-2014, 03:39 PM
I do remember that my first builds were Shiranui and Kasumi, and the first drop was probably Inazuma or Shikinami. I built 2 or 3 ships in a row as I first began, and I kind of don't remember who was drop and who was build. These four are my oldest ships now, since I scrapped Shirayuki (and picked her up again much later).

Shiranui (84) is my first build and I still use her when I need a DD. I kept her as Tokyo Express fleet flagship for a while and now she's back to the front line in 3-5. She's practically my starter after me sinking Fubuki in 1-2 on Day 1.

Kasumi (34) is still just an expedition member.

inazuma (60) is out to Tokyo Express with her sisters (minus Verniy) and the two Germans. Exped 37/38 give a decent EXP for expeditions, she got from 38 to 60 just by carrying drum canisters to the southern seas. Maybe I'll retire DesDiv6 from there by the time they reach 70.

Shikinami (46) was just an expedition member for a long while, now she's doing 4-2 weeklies with Ayanami (47). I may decide to powergrind Ayanami to get that Kai Ni eventually, but I actually like Shikinami's character better and I want to keep them in pairs. I'll just slowgrind them both together, the time will come eventually.

09-15-2014, 03:59 PM
I don't remember first drop -can't find id 3 since I prolly scrapped her- but Yuubari was my first build. Was pretty happy since I was going "HOW AM I GONNA GET HER?!" before I started. Sitting as my 2nd highest level now.

09-15-2014, 04:02 PM
The very first thing I did after the tutorial was do a cruiser build. Got Isuzu, and she still sees sorties now and then. (she's at 70 now)

The first drop was Ushio. I was using her as a frontline DD for a while, but now she does Tokyo Express runs. (64)

09-15-2014, 04:11 PM
My first drop was Akebono who is in her thirties and doing expedition duty. First build was Kitakami and she is sitting at a comfortable 113.

On a side note my first, second, and third battleship were all Mutsu, with the original being the highest level ship in my collection.

09-15-2014, 04:45 PM
First Drop: Nagatsuki (currently on Expedition duty)
First Build: Kitakami (the CLT of dooooooom)

I got a little lucky with that first build actually.

09-15-2014, 05:27 PM
Dunno what my first drop was, first build was Atago though. Shes still in my fleet at like level 50something too.

Edit: I remembered, its Mio-clone. Shes currently 66 in my exped fleet.

09-15-2014, 05:35 PM
First drop was Kikuzuki. Not sure what my first build was.

09-15-2014, 05:36 PM
Don't remember my first drop, but my first craft was Hibiki. She's still quietly sitting around for when she is needed.

09-15-2014, 05:40 PM
my first build is Isuzu and my first drop is Shirayuki

09-15-2014, 05:43 PM
I believe my first drop is Wakaba or Hibiki though I lost track of the other ship classes. Dunno about my first Destroyer in construction but I remember that Kiso is my first CL. Takao for my CA. Hiyou for CVL. Kaga for CV. Goya for SS. and Kirishima for BB.

09-15-2014, 05:49 PM
1st drop I believe was Samidare or Suzukaze . First build would be Naka .

09-15-2014, 06:50 PM
Peth Mio-clone? Ooshio? xD I'm just hoping that's a Nichijou reference...

09-15-2014, 06:50 PM
I know my first build was Naka but I don't remember who my first drop was, if I had to guess, it was probably Hatsuyuki.

09-15-2014, 07:11 PM
There are two things I remember: My second and third drop/build, and my first 400/30/600/30 attempt.

Jintsuu was my second ship. Jintsuu is lingering around at level 28, and she was my highest-leveled CL. I don't use her very often, as I don't have enough interest in getting Jintsuu Kai Ni right now. I'm too busy with Sendai and Ayanami.

Tatsuta was my third ship. She's sent on expeditions every so often.

Since my primary goal was to get Haruna as quickly as possible, I did 400/30/600/30 the first chance I got, and got Maya, my first CA. She's level 60 and is used whenever I need a CA. One of her more recent uses was wrecking E-2 Hoppou with a 300-damage crit.

09-15-2014, 07:13 PM
I don't remember who my first drop was, but my first craft was Hibiki. I remember, because when I started I had no plans in mind other than gathering DesDiv6. Pleasant surprise to have Hibiki as first craft pop up.
According to KCV, Kikuzuki's ID is 3, so I suppose that's my first drop.

09-15-2014, 07:25 PM
Nagato was my first craft when i decided to make a huge gamble first drop was ayanami

09-15-2014, 08:45 PM
My first build was Kiso. She's level 95 and she's going to marry me, hehe.
I'm not sure about the drop since I don't use KCV but Ikazuchi seems quite likely. She and her sisters are all level 65... Desdiv 6 66 soonish~

09-15-2014, 09:26 PM
Hatsushimo Shiratsuyu / K-on.

Edit: Should've typed Yui-clone, mixed up the moe blobs.

Edit2: Oh if the ID number in KCV is the actual number of the ship you picked up then 1, 2, 3, and 4 are Samidare, Shiratsuyu, Shirayuki, Kasumi. They're all 60-something in the exped fleet.

09-20-2014, 01:03 PM
Arare was my first build. I had let her go since she has done her role.

I forgot who was my first drop.

09-20-2014, 02:09 PM
My first build was Arasihio
First drop was Akebono.
Or was it the other way around, I don't remember

09-20-2014, 02:10 PM
All I can remember is, my first build was Hatsushimo :/

09-20-2014, 03:22 PM
It seems I have already scrapped both my first drop & first build and forgotten their names... My second and third drop is Mochizuki and Akebono, though.

09-21-2014, 12:06 AM
Interestingly, my first drop was Hatsushimo. In fact, I have my first 10 ships, except for number 4, who I assume was a duplicate that I modernized long ago.

09-21-2014, 01:47 AM
Hatsuyuki was my first craft. I can't say who my first drop was.

09-21-2014, 11:42 AM
Hmm not so sure but in order

Samidare, Poi-dachi, Yasen and Ikazuchi.

AFAIR Poi/Sen-chan is my first drop.

Samidare is my first construct I think?

09-23-2014, 04:55 PM
Turns out my first drop or build was ushio( ID 2). I still have her and kind of like her.

09-23-2014, 05:05 PM
ID 1 (starting ship) :Samidare
ID 2 (first drop) Yuudachi
ID 6 (first build) Natori

all still alive and swimming.

My latest ship atm which didn't end up as modernisation fodder is Yuubari (ID 1497) ;)

09-26-2014, 01:31 AM
Anybody like me didn't treat this game seriously firstly but then carrying on one's wallet???:iku_sad:

09-26-2014, 12:32 PM
ID: 1 - murakumo kai
2 - nagara
4 - fumizuki (I never really liked her from the start but I kept her because she was my third drop ever?!)

ID 13 (my lucky number) is akebono and she keeps calling me 'kuso-teitoku' but that's totally okay

09-26-2014, 12:49 PM
1st build - Satsuki
1st drop - Shirayuki

09-27-2014, 01:49 AM
My first drop was Hatsushimo.
First build was Naka :v

09-27-2014, 08:59 PM
First build was Yayoi <3
first drop was..... fumizuki. I couldnt read the kaniji and i thought that the scrap button was the upgrade button... saddays. but i still have a commerative screenshot :)

09-27-2014, 09:03 PM
My first drop was Kuroshio.
First build was Yuudachi.

09-27-2014, 09:57 PM
First drop was a naka I think. I don't remember my first build

09-27-2014, 11:36 PM
my first build was Yuudachi and my first drop was probably Jintsuu

09-28-2014, 12:36 AM
I find it really cute how many of the others' favourite ships (or at least what I can gather from their avatars/signatures) were also their first drop or build!

10-08-2014, 02:06 AM
Iirc i think tama was my first drop, cant remember my first build though. Though i still have a lot of my early ships that i still use for expeditions, Sorties.

10-08-2014, 02:47 AM
Hiesha You wouldn't be able to get Tama from 1-1-1, though...she doesn't drop there. It must be someone else! ;o

10-08-2014, 02:50 AM
im not sure if she was my first drop/build or not, but yuudachi is my oldest non-starter ship

10-08-2014, 03:26 AM
Hatsushimo Sorry my bad i mixed up my post i meant she was my frist craft not drop ><

10-08-2014, 05:08 AM
Hiesha xD I had a feeling! No worries.

Lunatic Hakurei
10-08-2014, 05:13 AM
I think it was Shirayuki. I hope I didn't scrap her.

10-08-2014, 05:21 AM
I don't remember my first drop or build, but my second one was Zuihou ~
I just remember saving all my resources and trying to get Kaga lmao

10-08-2014, 05:24 AM
Hatsushimo I thought something was off lol.

10-08-2014, 05:30 AM
The first two IDs are Inazuma and Jintsuu. They are both still here and Jintsuu is now my highest CL. Inazuma held an honorable flagship status during my 3-2 clear. The first surviving drop is Yuudachi. She is the highest DD now.

10-08-2014, 06:07 AM
After trying to recall it again, my first build was Naka. I was kinda happy at that time as I got something that packs more FP than a DD. It's even funnier when I realized that she's also the first ship that I Kai Ni-ed.

Tirpitz chan
10-08-2014, 06:12 AM
Naka was one of my first builds as well, not sure if she was THE first though. Never cared much about her and used her as modernization fuel later.

10-10-2014, 04:40 AM
My waifu Shigure was my first drop :)

10-11-2014, 07:58 AM
Kiso was my first build... powered me through World 1. Need to level her up now, though

10-11-2014, 11:48 AM
Tenryuu joined my fleet and with Murakumo as my starter, my base had quite the personality.

10-11-2014, 09:52 PM
Samidare (Starter)
1st built Samidare
first drop Satsuki
