    @Danielosama Actually I mean DD. Both OASW DD and DA DD on that matter. Even DD without ASW equipment will do scratch damage to sub loli, and all they need to do is to chip her to chuha before closing torp. Of cos, those with ASW equipment will perfrom the job more efficiently, but that's the balance between passing rate and S rank rate you need to adjust yourself.

    @211303 Fair enough.
    I'm still farming for Johnston, but S ranking the Boss has become almost impossible. I have 3 OASW, and at this point I only enter NB if 2 ships in the enemy main fleet are alive.
    I sure hope I get her soon

    if you do medium difficulty and opt to go via node V, can you skip the whole unlocking process?

    If I follow the comp in your guide, I can only reach 487 FP because my SPF aren't great. What would be the best course of action here? Swap Haguro for a CAV and put a SPF on her? Put a SPF on Nagato instead of AP shell? Swap Zuikaku for another CV? Something else?

    Don't swap the shell that's a 1.35 multiplier on touch. I'd say try it first and see if you get AS ? I got AS with 495 air power on my fleet.
    Personally i would swap Haguro for a CAV.

    @211303: Couple questions as I'm finishing up some planning. Assuming can use any CVB here. Planning on Taihou for Part 2 (since waifu and higher plane count). For Part 2 - Main will be what you had for LD comp (both LD & initial runs). For Escort on LD, planning Myoukou as flag in NB TCI, but then Sendai (like her and she does get a bonus. Will use ABKM b/c can go Ko-hyoteki + SONAR + DC for OASW on initial kills), Kawakaze, Arashi (lvl 81 but should be high enough level), Hagikaze (also 81), and Isokaze B. For chipping, thinking about putting in Shigure & Hamakaze as OASW ships in place of Hagikaze & Arashi. Assuming those two will work fine and that I can have two dedicated OASW DD w/ all ASW equip (or even 3 with Kawakaze) on top of ABKM.

    You commented upon how going with DA and high bonus ships is more consistent (what I like), but less potential damage. Having a bit of trouble assessing whether the degree of higher potential damage going with NB TCI DD (e.g. Shigure & Yukikaze) is worth it vs. much more consistent NB DA. There's definitely a difference in damage potential, but gotta have that TCI trigger where as even Hagikaze Kai & Arashi Kai give some pretty good numbers thanks to large 2x bonus on top of usual NB DA bonus. As a general rule, I much prefer NB DA and only go with NB TCI when absolutely necessary.

    For unlocking ZZ, noticed you need a CTF. That's fine, but I may go ahead and try to unlock the E-2 Part 2 shortcuts for farming Hayanami. Saw some suggested that. Not 100% sure if that's worth it or not, but want to keep the option open. It seems I need a CTF as well for U-V routing. I suspect that best to use my better CV(B) (so Cranes, Taihou and Saratoga MkII or Intrepid) on E-3 and then whoever (e.g. Akagi, Kaga, Graf or even CVL) will do fine for E-2. Any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    ---------
    @Mobius: Agree with Ashkandy, don't drop the AP from Nagato (or Musashi K2). I'd try another CV(B) - I'm going with Taihou since does have that large 3rd slot which will add a bit. If that doesn't work, again agree with Ashkandy. Drop Haguro for a CAV. Granted lose a "historic ship" with 1.25x multiplier, but it's main fleet so not as big of a deal vs. losing in escort and taking part in NB to finish off boss.

    @Ashkandy @goesto11 Yeah, I didn't like losing the AP shell either and I wasn't considering it too much, but I figured it was worth mentionning. I tried with Taihou, and by putting a fighter on the biggest slot I can just about reach 519 FP. Should be good enough hopefully. If it doesn't then I guess it'll be CAV time. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Btw Goesto, I had pretty decent result during chipping with DA fleet and some OASW ships for passing rate. Got 3 S rank, 1 C rank (red T + DE friendly fleet) and 1 A rank.

    @Mobius: Glad I could help & appreciate the info. If not Taihou, then I have Intrepid in reserve. Not a CVB, but kind of sturdy at least and lots of plane capacity.

    NB DA + some OASW ships is the plan for chipping Part 2 (about to start Part 1). Can try it (with less OASW) for final kill and see how it goes. Is the unlocking difficult/pain? Planning on 6xSSV (didn't use for E-2) for sub-cheesing a lot of it.

    Finally done with E3H. I was kinda surprised how forgiving the route was outside the trollsubs, but got roflstomped on my first attempts at last dance. Unlocking ZZ node took me a lot more than i expected too, due to having fighters with no chevron, and being too stubborn to skill them up first since i wasn't sure on air power anyways (i don't use any app :P)

    Few things i did different than 211303's recomended fleet:

    • Used Naganami instead of Kawakaze (since i locked her on P1), equiped with AACI setup
    • Used Urakaze instead on Shiranui, equiped with ASW + radar.
    • Used ASW + minisub on Abukuma, since mine is not luck modded.
    • Gave Shigure 2 torps + star shell and moved her to the bottom of the fleet. NB cut in rate was terrible for me, so i tried improving the odds, since it did not look like the boss was THAT tanky.
    • Equiped both Nagato and Musashi with 15m duplex radars (+ HA/MG on Musashi). This gave Musashi a chance to do AACI, which she did quite often.
    • Used ASW route support like suggested, but sent both Toukai waves to node ZZ. Since i had 2 ASW ships on my fleet, my aim was to risk getting 1-2 chuuha on the first node, and aim for no damage taken on ZZ node. When it was just 3 subs, i had a chance to actually one-shot the sub hime with one toukai wave. On the other hand, doing it the way it was suggested (sending toukai to C and ZZ) usually ended with me having 3-4 chuuha ships on my escorts and the hime surviving with scratch damage anywways.
    • I did sparkle the escort fleet, but the main fleet pretty much went as it was.


    Had an awesome "Green T - AS - Nagatouch killing the 3 tanks - everyone but boss dead before night battle" LD run that got ruined when everyone decided to do scratch damage. Next LD run was "AS - normal engagement - Nagatouch didn't trigger", and then everyone decided to remember they could do cut ins.

    And of course, new MC got the killshot.
