    @firehawk12 It's quite a ridiculous requirement (especially on lower difficulties) but I guess the devs came to the conclusion that LBAS is mandatory for anything during events

    E5 Hard part 1 cleared!

    Notable drops (casual pre-clear): Suzutsuki

    The transport phase is quite straightforward with a manageable boss node, so getting S-ranks should be relatively easy. Support expedition is optional, though I used it to ensure higher passing rate since I did retreat a few times at node E or L. 6 daihatsus used since the surface radar requirement prevented me from adding more without weakening the fleet further.





    All sent to boss node

    Do the sub nodes just get harder on last dance? I had no trouble before but now I can't get past the first node. :(

    @firehawk12: Not as far as I know. Could be comp changes (i.e. less OASW ships in your fleet), could be RNG. GL


    Thanks to Arkayda for the signature.

    Bit the bullet and used some food to sparkle the fleet and made it past the subs. Ugh. lol

    Anyway, thanks everyone - managed to beat the event despite having a full time job. On Medium, but hey, I was thinking I'd have to go casual.

    Now I just need to figure out how to farm... or if I even can.

    Finished E3 on easy. I opted to not open node ZZ since it looked quite tedious and I had like 20 buckets going into the second phase. @goesto11 3 BB+CV(L/B) routed to node V all the time, so thanks for the advice. Last Dance was annoying, I felt like I was only missing one decent damage roll, so I just went YOLO and redirected my Nagato special attack from node V to the boss. It helped, so Saberkaze finished the boss off.

    Fleets:
    Nagato K2 - Bismarck Drei - Tone K2 - Shoukaku Kai2 - Commandant Teste (SPF mule) - Akitsumaru (fighter mule)
    Isuzu K2 (OASW) - Verniy (OASW) - Hagikaze (DA) - Kitakami K2 (TCI) - Yukikaze (TCI) - Isokaze B Kai (TCI)

    I pretty much followed my D with this comp, it was probaly not exactly optimal, but hey, easy difficulty. No notable drops, so Ima dive back in for Gotland and Johnston. I wouldn't mind Daitou either.

    Pretty much caved out of annoyance and replaced my escort's expansion slot MGs with Repair Goddesses. After that, my fleet never ever got taiha'ed again by either node's Loli Hime, even when I removed the Toukai base and sent all three bases to the boss instead. Which was 3 more runs. If I didn't know better, I would have thought that Repair Goddess confers some kind of bonus to evasion and overkill protection.

    The other thing that I'll add is it seems to me Nagato has a special modifier for her special Cut-in during Red-T just like Nelson. Not sure. I'll have to review my replays and do the math. But either way that shit is amazing, my final run was Red-T and I saw half the enemy main fleet taken out anyway.

    Okay, this final map is annoying that I'm tempted to drop down the difficulty but I won't as I still have plenty of resources. Well, I'll drop if I can't clear this hellhole map on the last day or two.

    Anyway, on what nodes can I farm Johnston? I might take a break for a while on killing the boss for this.

    @silentcap Only the boss.

    @211303

    By "Boss", you mean node Z?

    Also, is A-rank already enough to have a shot at getting Johnston or do I need to S-rank the boss? I only S-ranked the boss once and that's during pre-LD runs. I wish I did that during LD now.

    @silentcap Yes, only node Z. A rank gives you around 2.6% drop rate.
