    Just cleared E4H today (no Fletcher unfortunately, so I'll have to farm for her) and I have a question: Is the hard reward worth the extra salt over clearing on medium? +1 AA and +1 Evasion don't seem all that worth it at first glance.

    Going into LD. Going to swap Iowa for sushi so I have a chance to achieve the strongest friend fleet. The IJN-USN fleet in the middle.

Was using Prinz E due to luck mod and comments that CA in the end don't do much unless get some good dice rolls so go with higher NB TCI trigger rate. With Prinz E, I won't have damage potential of Myoukou K2 (Prinz E K2 when?). I could go with Myoukou, but yeesh. Another default luck ship. As you say: "In the end, you have to rely on a couple of TCI critical hits from ships with a bigger historical bonus (American DDs and/or Abukuma)" - though it should be noted at according to KC Wikia, Kasumi has a larger bonus than Abukuma.

    To put it simply, I'll have to rely upon SB Roberts, Johnston and Kasumi, and if that's the case, I'd like to maximize damage potential with those three. Just hate having to put only 2x torps on 2 of the 3 NB TCI ships I'm relying upon to clear. So FBB mule is becoming more and more attractive given my fleet. It would allow for a 3rd torp on either SB Roberts or Kasumi (one will have to have RADAR). Should be able to also squeeze in star shell on the FBB. CI trigger rate bonus isn't much (and that's IF star shell triggers), but well, ain't gonna hurt. Also 150cm Searchlight will tank more. OTOH, have to figure just getting scratch from FBB (why I'm thinking of placing 2nd). Still, there is the possibility that CA NB TCI (even with Prinz E instead of Myoukou) may do something other than scratch.

    Meh. To me this is damned if you do, damned if you don't given my fleet. Leaning towards using FBB - Bismarck Drei specifically (thinking will tank a bit better than Kongou K2C). It's just hard for me to gauge this.

    LOL, looks like I might have saved Akagi for nothing given Friend Fleets. Oh well E-4's done and gone (thankfully). Also looks like I may have to do some sort of modernization fodder farming since I'll have to convert my Saratoga to CVB (also RIP more ammo & steel >_<).

    Still... Saratoga CVB = 4 slots so where is that RADAR off Akagi K2 going? I guess Mutsu w/ Nagato fleet (at least get more bonus that way). For Nelson fleet I guess on Saratoga CVB (with 2x fighters + TB) so no CVCI with that.

    Lastly, glad E-5 FFleet is here. Not up on tweets (don't read Japanese) so was wondering when. Thought it might be couple days later TBH, but sooner the better.

    PS - Yeah, I'm definitely going to cry when I see the sortie costs. I finally understand the symbolism behind Boss Node Z's icon centered in what looks to be a black hole. It's to represent resource costs for this map (and event). :P
    Perhaps I should elaborate more on that TCI CA vs night battle equipment fBB. While the CA's TCI damage may not be on par with the high damage bonus DDs, the damage is still respectable as ever. While American DDs are able to deal for 500 damage, my Myoukou still managed to do ~200. The latter is still proper damage and is useful to finish off escorts (or damage the boss for more to have one of your DDs to finish off). On the other hand, the night battle equipment fBB will mostly be a sitting duck and not able to deal any damage (I used my level 175 Kongou).

    In terms of equipment, you can still stuff a small searchlight and night recon in your escort fleet without the fBB. You will be missing out on the Starshell (and bigger searchlight) however. The fBB does allow you to concentrate the torpedoes on your here important DDs. But again, I think this is also a trade-off since it means you have less chance to finish off escorts and therefore might require more luck on boss sniping. Either way, to quote myself before, I do not think any of these methods is vastly superior than the other.

    Either Kongou or Bismarck will do the job just fine since their stats are very similar. Though Kongou might be slightly less tanky than Bismarck, the former does have a higher torpedo stat and is cheaper on the fuel consumption. Also, being tankier at the boss node does not matter at all since she will be a non-factor (as a damage dealer) there regardless. Again, all these differences are very slight.

    I on the other hand kept my Akagi at regular Kai Ni because I do not really fancy her E variant, but converted my Saratoga back into black uniform and improved again, which I did not make any use of. :/

    If you decide to sortie Saratoga instead of Akagi, you either want to equip that radar on Nagato/Mutsu indeed or on one of your DDs in the escort fleet.


    PS. That is actually a resource sinkhole. ;)

    You do not really need that night fighter from the hard clear rewards. Stat differences are marginal indeed. Besides, night fighters are hardly any useful in general.
    In the end, it all comes down to whether you feel like clearing it on Hard difficulty.
    I do it because I have always been clearing events on the highest difficulty (and even forced to before difficulty selection). I want to keep it that way. ;)

    I revised the recommended E5 fleet based on friend fleet. Opted to dump Akagi for Saratoga CVB as that unlock a powerful ff (Akagi, Kaga, Kongou) without much effect to my main fleet. I believe Iowa's damage is too valuable to give up for another ff, but you can choose Musashi over her if you want the one with Iowa and Akagi.

    @Mobius In the end it is still a 12 AA fighter. It will be useful even as a pure fighter.

    Unless you already have 4x Reppuu Model 11.

    @211303 So Nagamutsu is now preferable to Nelson touch?

    @Danielosama yes, I really overestimated the value of artillery spotting tbh.
