    Just cleared with 1CL + 4DD in hard. Based on my experience, 1CL+4DD suffers a bit in LD due the addition of So class.

    So adding to what @RivieraBlue said, ASW boss support could really help, in my case it helps to kill 1 sub before OASW.

    Haven't tried 2CL+3DE+1DD, but maybe its better having 6 OASW against only 5 OASW.

    how do you do aerial ASW boss support?




    Wo-san... why won't you come to my base?

    You don't get it do you? It's a SHIP that launches Ship GIRLS! It's going to cause a rift in the space/awesome continuum!!

    I just cleared on hard with 3DE+2CT+1DD. My kaiboukan were between 51 and 58 so if you've remodeled them and then used them for your 1-5 runs you'll probably be alright on those. I didn't have any failed runs using line ahead on the first node and vanguard on the second, though I did use node support on pre-LD and then both on LD. I tried using 2DD+4CA node support but the Wa-class' sizable HP pool means you'll probably need to do something like 2DD+2CA+2BB if you want it to contribute on that node.

    The only real problem is that you probably won't be able to get S on the boss since the destroyers have a good chance to survive.

    Starting a full MO Hard clear stream using the updated strategies. Anyone is welcome to watch~

    Twitch

    I'll replace this post with a report once I'm done~

    ~~~~

    E-1 Hard Cleared!
    6 runs, of which 5 S ranks (including final), 1 A rank
    Also did 90 S rank farming runs in Easy.

    Route: 2GFI. Line Ahead at Node G, Vanguard at Node F, Line Abreast at boss Node I


    Composition (All characters with Sonar + DC + DCL)
    Kaiboukan x3
    CL x2
    DD

    Used Node Shelling Support (CVL 2BB CA 2DD), and used Boss Airstrike Support (4CVL 2DD) for final kill

    Spent 6 buckets to rush the map (bucket shouha or worse)

    Notable drops:
    Hard: Nothing!
    Easy: SIX I-26, Uranami


    Comments
    Straightforward ASW map. If you are paranoid about shiplocking for the EOs, I'd suggest instead of using Isuzu/Tatsuta K2 here (as I did, since I was farming Easy for some reason), just use any 2 CLs of sufficient level and no unique abilities that can reach 100 ASW stat with equipment. (e.g. Agano-class, Sendai, Naka). You can also use training cruisers here, but honestly their stats are worse than DDs so you might as well use those instead.

    If you do use Isuzu/Tatsuta here, you can give them 2 guns+1 ASW equip for non-final kills as they can help with killing things at the surface nodes and finishing off the boss escorts for possible S rank.

    For now, I would actually advise saving Tatsuta K2 for E2 instead - again, this is based on paranoia concerning EOs and need for CLs with unique abilities for a E4 transport phase). I might change this advice depending on what E4 turns out to be like.


    Note on Farming (I-26, I-13, I-400, Kaiboukan)
    I did 90 runs on Easy looking for I-13, and she didn't appear with a 0.5% chance according to poi-stats. I might well be awfully unlucky, but I do believe that she is restricted to 1 per account (unlike the last time she was a drop), as all the reports I've seen of I-13 drop have been by people who didn't have her previously. Therefore if you have all ships I don't recommend farming Easy unless you want more I-26 (which I did... and I got plenty~).

    You can farm the pre-boss Node F in Easy for Kaiboukan (Etorofu/Matsuwa), as well as Akashi/Hayasui/Uranami, if you do just equip your ships for surface battle - 1 CL 4 DD would be a better setup for this, use line ahead at both battles, then just retreat after the pre-boss node.

    If you want I-400, you must farm on Hard difficulty as she doesn't drop on any easier difficulties. You must also get a S rank.to get the rare sub drops. Unlike I-13, it's possible to get dupes of I-400.

    A fair warning that farming on this map is very morale-taxing, you will do 2 runs and then wait about 15 mins for morale to return, unless you're willing to lock all your kaiboukan here and rotate them to farm. An alternative would be to use low level, non-kai Kaiboukan, allow them to get damaged and then repair them quickly, which heals their morale.

    Good luck and happy hunting!

    Notable drops: I-26, Maruyu

    Boss expedition is optional, not required to clear LD

    So I have Kashima and Katori as my CTs with both being high-leved (about lv 90) and one fleet comp I noticed here uses 2 CTs. Are CTs of any use in the next two maps? I don't want to go all-in unless there's no setback down the line (in this case, in later maps).

    @silentcap Should be pretty safe to use CT.

    When node support fails to trigger, I end up retreating because of taiha. I really wish they changed that to 100% rate. It defeats the purpose of using them in the first place.

    E-1 cleared on hard!



    Used 3DE1DD2CL for guaranteed shortest routing. No boss/node support, no sparkling. Getting past the pre-boss battles wasn't an issue thanks to spoon/vanguard. Used it on both surface battles to protect the squishy DE-s.

    All ships were loaded with nothing but ASW gear. I prepared ASW boss support for last dance, but thanks to the KC3 counter not updating properly, I didn't realize I was already on last dance and ended up killing the boss without any support :P

    I also had two fleet presets for farming the boss pre-clear:
    Farming fleet #1: Kunashiri, Tsushima, Sado, Ushio, Yuubari, Nagara
    Farming fleet #2: Fukae, Daitou, Hiburi, Asashio, Isuzu, Naka

    It might have been overkill to lock so many ships in E1, but I really wanted to get my precious subs.

    New ships: I-13, I-26
    Took 27 S-ranks in E-1N to acquire both. Also got a dupe Maruyu in the process.

    Addendum: Looks like the new ASW equipment from the spring mini-event is quite useless here. They don't seem to have the same synergy bonus that regular DCP-s have. In fact, pairing a stock T95 depth charge with your sonar+DCP actually gives more raw damage than the +15 ASW rocket launcher :/

    Onwards to E-2!
