    E4H cleared finally. Would have done it sooner had I realized friend fleet was something you had to enable in the settings. Ended up sparkling each attempt, which made the pass rate above 80%, but still didn't contribute much to the chipping damage. Once the 3rd starting point opened, the remaining attempts were almost insultingly easy.

    New map new questions :)
    (1) With stronger Friend Fleet introduced is it worth to prefer Italia+Roma -Combo over Kirishima+Hiei in STF?

    (2) same with Arare (only lvl 65) because she seems to appear in a hole bunch of FF ...
    on E3 i've got only crap-FF. I really doubt it's worth the gamble but with all the locking I only have Arare(65), Ooshio (lvl90) and Asashio(D)(lvl97) for STF.
    Because i can't sortie Nissin maybe Asashio in Main and Ooshio in Escort for the FF gamble ? Or Ooshio for AV and Arare for the historical buff?

    thx as always :)

    @Tygonius - Assuming Start 3: I cleared E-4H with Hiei, Kirishima & Arare, but with the weaker friend fleets so hard to say. I'd probably keep Hiei & Kirishima though. That multiplier stacking adds up once you unlock Start 3 and it should be post cap. So if I was to drop a ship for friend fleet, then I'd drop Arare for reasons you point out, but watch locking unless you plan to go Easy or Casual for E-5.

    JMO though - @211303 or others may have different view. GL

    @Tygonius I would say no to kirishima and hiei, but kicking Arare for one of her sister is viable. Probably Asashio in Main and Ooshio in escort.


    The sexiest bridge ever made.

    How hard is E4 compared to E2/3 if I don't really have much time? Not sure if I should bother on hard if it's really tedious otherwise...

    @firehawk12: Problem with E-4H is LOW passing rate for CTF which you need to do to unlock Start 3. I had a 26% passing rate to the boss for that. >_<.

    This gets expensive really fast. Friend Fleet can help some, but the problem is getting to the boss with CTF. Seriously, you'll burn a lot here unless RNG likes you and E-5 isn't cheap either. E-5 is expensive all around (theme for this event), but can get past stuff fairly well until you hit the wall that is LD at Node X and Boss Node.

    Once you get Start 3 for E-4 unlocked, it's much better with STF even on Hard. Shorter route (and I think more damage bonus). Took me 3 sorties to finish up with STF (ran double support, but not sparkling fleet).

    I THINK the buffed Friend Fleet more since I cleared. For me, F Fleet did help, but it was pretty hit or miss E-5 Friend Fleet is pretty damn good for chipping runs at least.

    Hard to say whether worth doing Med vs. Easy if not going for Hard clear. Lose a medal (not a huge deal), but 2x planemats may or may not matter to you. Need that stuff for Akagi K2 (and more for K2E). Do get the GFCS Mk37 RADAR on Easy at least. Farming though... Easy still has BB Water Oni and Fletcher ONLY drops on S-rank for Casual & Easy. Medium will be harder of course, but at least Fletcher drops on A-rank for Medium as well as Hard. That may/may not change things for you. If you want Fletcher (at at least a chance), I'd clear on Medium or Hard. Should be able to farm OK-ish on Medium for A-rank, but again, this will NOT be cheap no matter what.

    @goesto11 Hrm, is it worth the supposed pain it requires on Hard for the Reppu? Right now my big blocker is more time, with basically a little more than a week to finish the whole thing.

    @firehawk12: Fighter's pretty good, but you'll also get one with E-5 as long as you go Easy or higher (Hard gets special version which is a bit better.).

    Yeah, times a factor for sure, but so are resources. Not kidding on that. You could try for Hard here then go down to even Easy for E-5. Medium for E-5 probably isn't all that bad TBH. You'll have buffed friend fleet. E-4 depend upon having enough equipment. Read thread including which ships not to use for E-4 to get better friend fleet (e.g. Hiei and Kirishima OK, but maybe skip Arare and I THINK Nisshin and a couple others). If you get Hard here and then at least Easy for E-5, that's 2x NB fighters. Not too bad. Not sure how great the 152mm triple is. Looks good, but depends upon fit bonus because can't improve right now.

    @goesto11 haha, I don't have much capacity to do research, but I can clone your setups and just remove Arare and be safe?
