    Nice.

    Any good suggestions for a comp that could reliably S-rank Hoppou at 3-5?

    I have one spare catapult and was planning to use it on a Saratoga dupe to keep both forms around. Any chance we'll need another one soon? I dont remember hearing about possible CV K2.
    Also I really dislike these grinding events

    Ive given 1-4, 1-5 and 2-3 a go so far, with best results on 1-4, never got any umeboshi, only rice

    Woot. Finally a chance to gain more catapults. I'll need to farm for 2 to k2 the dupe cranes that have been sitting at k2 level for over a year lol.

    Does anyone knows if the chance of dropping of event items is the same between non-boss node and boss node? Since I plan to farm macha in 3-5 Hoppo as the others either have less reliable routing or are harder to S rank.

    6-3 spamming while subcheesing 2-4 while doing W2 daily. On the 4th 2-4 boss fight first mission complete!



    Now on to farming enough ingredients to trade for 2 catapults...

    EDIT: Looks like I'll be farming 3-5 next. Need another pair of DE and I can sink transports as well.

    @friggo 3 cv 3 ca if you want to farm hoppo only. Otherwise, replacing 1-2 ca with high armor sub for sub tank if you need to reach boss as well.

    - - - Updated - - -
    @sandrio Who knows? Not a bad idea to grab a spare one if you do not have any. If you complete all quests, you will get one Houshou ticket, which you can trade for catapult.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Updated all the quest, recommended order and drop list.

    As far as where to farm, these are my suggestions:

    Tea: 6-5 if you haven't done EO yet, 6-3 if you are farming Fukae, and 3-5 if you are done farming Fukae

    Nori: 5-4 (cheap) and 4-2 (for de)

    Umeboshi: 1-5 (cehap) and 3-5 (for de)

    In general, I will say you should farm enough tea first, then go for umeboshi and nori in 1-5 and 3-5. Rotate to 4-2 and 3-5 if overfishing kicks in. You will get enough rice in the process.

    Here's my personal 6-3 Fukae farming fleet which I actually first used last summer in a desparate try to farm for Unryuu (a much more difficult task):


    The CT means that the fleet will always take the upper route and skipping one battle, and with seaplane carriers (if using Mizuho or Chitose sisters, use double Seiran + Kouhyouteki instead) giving the AS the fleet is actually persistent enough to get A ranks most of the time at the boss, with S ranks coming once every few tries. Retreats do come once in a while but not that much, and usually you just pray that the fleet can hang on at daytime to wait for kills at night at the boss. You can see that I have used less powerful ships DDs here and even that nearly grabbed an S rank from the hardest enemy composition!

    Back in last June I used a similar fleet for Unryuu farming and was able to keep 1 boss S rank a day for 30 consecutive days, and S ranks came in a few to a dozen sorties. (*) With Fukae dropping at A ranks this should be a better alternative than trying to get through the compasses of 2-4, and the only significant usage of resources is buckets (and that is inevitable).

    (*) Didn't got her of course - that had to wait until the 2017 Fall Event


    KanDex completed and graduated from LSC on January 6, 2018 with Taihou found. :)
    Winter 2018 Event cleared (H-H-H-M-H-H-M) and all new ships acquired March 9, 2018

    @Cosmic Penguin Thanks for that suggested fleet. I was getting wrecked trying to go south with 3 CL and using Mizuho ..to the point rather face 2-4's compass.

    It seems CT/CL with Teste is giving enough firepower to succeed. Now it's all in the hands of RNG-sama.

    Is Testes superior planecount worth more than another opening torp from another AV?
    Ive got Mizuho close to 80 and the Chi-sisters at around 65, Teste is at around 65 as well.
    Id like to get another catapult out of this but im torn between getting a backup cata and using the one I have to have both versions of Sara at the same time, or fill another hole in the equipment dex with the late quad which isnt that bad to use either

    @sandrio it's not just another opening torp, but would also be a closing torp too, and if she survives do better night damage. Teste doesn't get those. On the other hand, Test will hit more ships in the opening air strike, and should hit harder during the day?
    Also, the middle node can empty some of Teste's slots if you're not lucky.

    If your drop luck is like mine, you'll have plenty of tries to compare them :D The big thing for me was the sneaking in another cruiser without risking going south.
