    Which is better for ingredient farming in 3-5? 3CA3CV with searchlight and skilled lookout on 1 CA or 1SS2CA3CV? The former increase chance of ingredient drop but is harder to get past hoppo compared to later.

    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.
    I think performance-wise Mizuho and Teste are a wash and I actually rotate them every 2-3 sorties to delay usage of buckets.
    The problem is that if you don't get the start right your fleet could be wrecked already during the first attacks at day battle of the boss, and that is highly RNG-dependent.
    I am not satisfactory with the ratio of S ranks (once in maybe 5-10 boss fights) so comments are welcome if there are things that can be improved in my fleet composition.

    BTW the full requirements for getting through the complete quest chain - 9 in total - is now known, and it isn't for the faint of heart:

    I don't think rice is a problem at all. Considering the ratio of rice drops to other resources, you should actually have HUNDREDS of rice before you get the required amount of other materials.

    So far my personal feel of this "mini-event" is that it'll take at least the same amount of time for a medium sized event for map just to complete all the quests, and even large scale sized quest for my goals of 2 catapults and 4 medals. Resource wise likely lesser than actual event size comparison, but the time needed is the real issue.

    Hopefully this event last a month.

    I guess they looked at their internal stats and realized players aren't getting nearly enough ingredients to reasonably complete the event in time.

    I hope this means they'll significantly boost the drop rates, especially of the non-rice ones.

    Pretty sure they have planned this all along, as the patchnote has hinted this already.

    Well, the biggest nuisance right now is rice drops can overwrite the harder and less numerous other ingredients.

    Planned on doing 6-5 for which has Tea at 50%+ chance to drop on S rank, but I know I'll only get rice... at least have us let a choice should both drop rates trigger.

    - - - Updated - - -

    3-5 is really, really good for farming it seems.
    Only been at Hoppou 11 times but I already got 8 tea and if she didn't rekt anyone then I get a rice with high chance as well at the boss node.

    Even with all of these goodies, DE seems to drop like hotcakes here - already got 3 under 10 runs; resource wise the map is pretty gud too.
