    The heavy fleets are really heavy for E4. Think I'll stick to Casual farming for the moment, S rank rate should be pretty good now.

    It tickles me somewhat that the E3 friend fleets seem to completely lack anti-installation equips. Kiso even comes with pure TPCI. While E4 fleets actually do have some anti-installation equips, or enough pure firepower to simply do the damage they need to. The "heavy" ones at least.

    For casual farming, do I have to unlock the third starting point?
    Or the farming is just sending the fleet to boss directly and restarting?

    @kazenorin One of the conditions for opening the 3rd starting point is getting to 40% of the boss gauge anyway. By that point, you're only good for one more run before you have to reset. On top of that, besides the other conditions that are naturally completed as part of your farming runs, Casual still requires that you sortie with a STF to node S.

    So no, you won't be opening the third starting point.

    @ofi123 for E4H post clear farming this event, you don't need support at all, just LBAS on boss is enough.

    Fletcher get! 28 sorties in total (some retreats, some A ranks)

    I reused 11 E3 ships for farming as most of them had expansion slots, and they are also applicable to E4 boss, which is more or less the same as that of E3. With the friend fleet introduced, here are my insights into farming on E4 casual using a Fast+ fleet:

    1) Relatively low-stress farming, You only need to worry about node O which may still send you retreating with taihas at times, and getting S-rank as the boss. Route is ACILOV

    2) With a Fast+ configuration, that means 12 slots given up on firepower to secure S-rank at boss consistently. LBAS will be the key to shaping up the battle.

    3) Friend fleet provides a bit of help, but it's still disappointing.

    4) Resource consumption is relatively low, around 400 fuel and 300 ammo per sortie (excluding repairs and LBAS replenishing).

    Reasons for A-rank at boss include the imp in the escort fleet, failure to nuke Supply Depot Hime, and choking on the Central Hime. Otherwise, S-ranks are easy to get in general.

    Fleet provided is not optimised as they are reused from E3. You may mix and match to improve performance, but take note of air power and LOS. You can still drop LOS to around 9 or 10 and still route to boss, but will go through the extra air-raid node R (can't confirm entirely as it only happened once when i was testing out a different configuration).

    @Ken G @ofi123 I think if you are going with fast+ comp in casual E4, having nelson touch here will help with getting S rank. With the bonus of touch, you gimped daihaitsu ship can still one shot imp/DJ hime.

    @211303 It completely slipped my mind that i can gear Nelson up to fast+ too lol. With 2 +13 boilers and the turbine, she can reach fast+ while still able to use 2 guns. Would recommend using her since her resource consumption is low. Thanks

    @Ken G With installation in mind, the best equipment for the remaining two slots will be a T3 and a gun. That way she still have enough raw firepower to kill the transport and other mob (except artillery imp), and max fp for boss and DJ hime.

    @211303 Sure, I'll probably do a few more farming runs to see how it works out, as well as get any other drops, before planning to clear the map. Thanks again
