    @Ken G E-3 Hard post-clear farming is costing me 7 to 9 buckets per "successful" run, and around 2 buckets per failed run

    @kazenorin That hurts a lot . If only it were like Early Fall 18 E5, which was designed exclusively for farming post-clear even on hard...

    @Ken G: True, Node support isn't needed to clear E-2H, but it sure helps - at least based upon my clearing vs. farming experience. clearing. For E-2 Hard Part 2, I used node support all sorties and never had a retreat. Sure, some RNG & small sample size, but yeesh, using clearing fleet & same LBAS, my farming pass rate is less than 50%! Again, not a huge sample size & RNG, but that is a massive difference.

    Buckets on a successful run avg. about 6 but it's not like every retreat is just one bucket either. Sure IF my LBAS sinks a BB Hime at Node M that helps, but IF. Also, I've had several taiha retreats at Node I. Ru-BB don't like me.

    All in all it's quite the frustrating farming experince. It's not all that cheap (could be worse, but still), the drop rate for Hayanami isn't great by any means. Again, could be worse, but certainly seen better. That I can deal with though. But the freaking pass rate, for me at least, makes the sum total farming experience a ridiculous.

    Don't have any E-3 farming experience. I'm sure it's more expensive than E-2. However, I had a 50% pass rate with/without asw aerial node support (didn't work well for me). Adding a 3rd OASW I'd think help considerably with passing the terror sub nodes. Won't help with S-rank, but decent drop rate for A-rank on Hard (from what I saw, lower difficulties kind of screwed on A-rank drop rate for Johnston). Maybe not say 80-90% with 3x OASW, but substantially better than 50/50.

    At this point, it seems that what's been said before is true. This simply is not a farm-friendly event when it comes to new drop-only ships, and notable in that regard vs. previous events. I'll keep trying for Hayanami, but this is definitely frustrating, and already mentally prepared for not getting her, especially if I can't get to the boss more than 1/2 the bloody time.

    From the pattern of returning drops in each events, I would say farming for new Yuugumo-class ships is the lowest priority because they normally return within 1 or 2 events after their initial release, and usually placed in easier maps with higher drop rates. If I had to choose only one ship to farm this event, it would definitely be Johnston, since I don't think she will return soon.

    I failed to get Kishinami in the previous event during my farming runs and she appeared during my clearing run, and now she appeared again while i was farming E2 on casual (before giving up on this pre-clear farming method)

The escort fleet will not enter battle 99% of the time so you can put all the ships you need to level there.
    Should I use the same main fleet line up as if I were clearing the map? I tried using 2 CL 4 DD in the main fleet and it routed me to R. I have 7 radar, I'm on medium, and have a radar on my both flagships

    Not sure if that was directed at me or general advice. I agree 100% with you that unless the person just wants Hayanami more, the farming priority for this event is Johnston first. Certainly much higher chance of seeing Hayanami again before Johnston.

    I was quite fortunate that Johnston dropped for me while clearing E-3 so I'm down to getting Hayanami. Had all ships for a long time and trying to keep it that way.

    At most one cl in main fleet.

    Almost all of these were either A-ranks or S-ranks and I've yet to get Johnston. And as if that wasn't enough, this happens:


    Get the fuck off of my case, Tanaka. This event has really been fucking terrible for me.

    The ddos seems to persist, so cat bomb might still appear from time to time until they have solved the problem.

    @211303 Here's hoping that they extend the event or increase the drop rate, because god damn this is infuriating.
