    [Winter 2019] Ship Lock Guide

    This thread is a general guide for ship lock planning and should be read in conjunction with the walkthrough in the respective event thread. Please also ask here for any question concerning general ship lock planning.


    Summary:

    Event Map Summary
    Operation Locking Fleet type

    E-2 p2 STF
    E3 Normal+STF

    *There will be no fleet locking on easy and casual difficulty

    Ship recommendation:

    The following recommendation will assume that you have no dupes for any ships, and have not luck modded anyone. Key ships that aren't included for historical bonus/routing purpose will be highlighted and explained.

    List of Historical Bonus ship
    [+] Spoiler

    E1:
    Murasame: x1.5
    Asashio/Shiratsuyu class: x1.3
    Jintsuu: x1.44
    Yura: x1.25
    Any ship with 2 gun+1 radar: x1.15 (cannot stack with the above bonus)

    E2 p1:
    Jintsuu: x1.9
    Sendai: x1.5
    Yura: x1.4
    Naka, Fubuki, Murakumo, Ayanami, Akebono, Sazanami, Ushio, Akatsuki, Inazuma, Yuugumo, Naganami: x1.3

    E2 p2:
    Jintsuu: x1.9
    Ayanami: x1.6
    Sendai, Yuudachi: x1.5
    Hiei, Kirishima, Yura, Makigumo: x1.4

    Sendai, Myoukou, Hagurou: x1.25



    Ship recommendation for each tag:


    :

    1CL 5DD

    Example:
    Michishio k2, Ooshio k2, Murasame k2, Arare k2, Kuroshio k2, Yura k2



    2BB 1CVL 1CAV 2DD

    Example:
    Kongou k2, Haruna k2, Chitose k2, Mogami kai, Akizuki kai, Akatzuki k2



    2BB 5CA(V) (at least 2 that can use SPF) 1CL 1CLT 3DD

    Example:
    Nelson kai, Kirishima k2, Furutaka k2, Kumano k2, Suzuya k2, Mikuma kai, Ashigara k2, Jintsuu k2, KTKM k2, Teruzuki, Ayanami k2, Yuudachi k2

    (Nelson kai will be important for passing rate with Nelson touch at node M)



    3BB 4CA(V) (at least 2 that can use SPF) 1CV 1CVL 1AV 1LHA 1CL 3DD

    Example:
    Nagato k2, Musashi k2, Ise k2/Yamato kai (depending on fighter power), Tone k2, Chikuma k2, Myoukou k2, Zara k2, Zuikaku k2, Junyou k2, Commandant Teste, Akitsumaru, ABKM k2, Isokaze k2, Kawakaze k2, Yukikaze k2

    (Nagato k2 is included for her special attack, while Commandant Teste is the only 4-slot AV we have, which will be key if you choose to pick the 2BB+1CV+1AV comp)

    (Other useful ships to save fo E3 will be Tashkent and Gotland, since they have 4 slots and can provide valuable place for radar while performing OASW. You could also use 6 SS(V) for unlock here)

    Thank you for the guide!

    How interchangeable are Nagato/Nelson in E2/E3? I've seen fleets that run Nagato in E2 and Nelson in E3 and I'm not sure which is the best way to go.

    @friggo They are interchangable but Nagato is more suitable for E3 since:

    1. Her ammo penalty doesn't matter as you trigger her ability at boss node in E3, instead of preboss.

    2. Her attack's bonus is higher

    3. Some build in E3 involves 2 BB only, which means the 3rd strike from Nelson touch will be triggered by a CA, thus further lowering the damage.

    Just started planning for the event. Since there are no sub bosses, is there any place that could use the ASW/weaker k2 alt or I could just lump them all for E-1 or reserve?

    As I've mentioned I'm away so I haven't had the time to start the event yet. Based on what's been shared here and in other forums, I've come up with a plan. Could I ask if someone could take a quick look before I start on it?


    E1 : Yura Ooshio Arashio Kasumi Satsuki Murasame
    E2 p1 : Kongou Haruna Chitose Mikuma Teruzuki Akatsuki
    E2 p2: (Nelson?) Kirishima Hiei Furutaka Mogami Kumano Ashigara // Nachi Jintsuu Ooi Ayanami Yuudachi Suzutsuki
    E3 : p1 Hiyou Suzuya ABKM Kawakaze Tashkent Michishio
    p2 (Nagato?) Musashi Ise Zuikaku Akitsumaru/Teste Zara Suzuya // ABKM Myoko KTKM Kawakaze Shigure Yukikaze (Tashkent chipping?) (Naganami LD?)


    Friend fleets even in E1 would mean it's practically skippable just by using plain DDs and spamming boss support, as long as there's at least a strong finisher. And there's nothing to farm there so no repeat runs.
    E2 would still need to be reasonably strong due to the problem being the pass rate rather than the boss itself.

    As for E3 I'm not using Isokaze K2 or Arashi/Hagikaze, so those are definitely out.
    So how does this look? Thanks in advance, any advice would save me the headache of thinking about games while on holiday :p

    Nelson and Nagato are for their special skill in the respective map. The skill will lower the difficulty of the map by a large degree.

    Other than that, pretty solid.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Might want to save Mutsu for E3 farming since Musashi isn't exactly cheap.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Oh, and just one more thing, since the Yamato support in E3 is actually not particularly good, you might want to save Arashio to avoid getting that fleet. That is, if you Arashio can either TCI/OASW. Otherwise she would be a deadweight and thus not worth bringing.

    E2 part 2 boss is very weak, so it doesn't need a strong escort fleet (i used yura there for better passing rate with another opening torpedo attack and 2 akizuki class dd for aaci).
    Also, with the right planes, you can use zuihou in part 1 with cvci+oasw setup.

    @NanashiYoukai: I think it's worth using Isokaze B for E-3 Part 2 with DA set up given massive damage bonus. At least for LD. She can do fine damage wise. She can also give you some AACI. Not Akizuki-class level AACI, but can help some. Lot depends upon how much luck-modding you've done since you seem to be going all in with NB TCI for E-3 Part 2. Remember, you'll have upgraded friend fleets to help out as well.

    For chipping, well, you can read my struggles on reaching the boss. Very well may be worth using 3x OASW for E-3 Part 2 chipping. Two doesn't seem to be sufficient unless your Aerial ASW Node support actually will do something. One LBAS of 4x Toukai/good ASW planes to Node C/ZZ is a must IMO.

    GL and I hope you enjoyed your trip.
