    Well, since this thread is up, might as well use it and ask what should be my priorities when it comes to equipment improvements.

    My equipment list.

    Thanks for the answers.

    @211303 Thanks.
    What about the new ASW gear? Are there any interesting synergies or any reason to upgrade it to CD?

    @Danielosama

    As a pure ASW gear it sucks because it works like the ASW rocket and T3 DC thrower conc in terms of synergy, as in it only synergies with Sonar, but not DC or DC thrower, while at the same time have low base stat.

    As an installation equipment, it is worse than WG and the T4 rocket against soft skin installation (e.g. 4-3, 4-5 boss), traditional hard skin (e.g. 6-4 boss), pillbox and Supply depot. We do not know about how it does against Summer installation and event specific ones though. Tests are still undergoing, but the actual bonus against softskin is confirmed:

    Base mortar (x1): x1.2+30
    Base mortar (x2): x1.56+55
    Base mortar (x3): x1.56+75
    Mortar conc (x1): x1.2+60
    Mortar conc (x2): x1.56+110
    (source)

    For now, this equipment is basically a hybrid equipment for both ASW and anti-installation. One interesting build, for example, would be Ooyodo with gun+sonar+DC conc+DC conc+gun for both oasw and ASW, but you need near max level and max ASW mod for that to reach OASW line. Something like KTKM with sonar+DC conc+midget sub while farming an installation map with sub might be good too for increasing passing rate.

    All in all, not something important to upgrade for now. Would also advice you to wait till the event before completing the arsenal quest that ask you to choose between 3 mortar and T4 rocket, as you would want to see what the event rewards are first.

    @211303 I see, thanks for the answers.
    Yeah, as will all these "new equipment quests", I was planning on waiting until the Event (even though I got one mortar and one rocket from ranking).
    I reckon the anti-installation Type 4 Rocket is not that interesting either right? Last I heard, it was quite weaker than WG42.

    Not exactly.

    One T4 is weaker than WG against soft skin, but stacking is a different story. You can refer to this graph:



    X axis is firepower of the ship, Y axis is attack power, blue line is wg x2, orange line is wg+t4, while grey line is t4 x2.

    Basically, t4 x2 is the best between the three for any ship with more than 60 fp (so pretty much all applicable ship) against softskin, while wg x2 is only stronger than wg+t4 when the ship has more than 103 fp (think only tone class with high upgrade can match that?).

    Again, it's against soft skin only so we don't know if that applies to other installations.

    @211303 Huh, that's interesting for sure. The required FP, is it base only, or does it take into account gear?
    And btw, is there any list of which Abyssals are soft skin and which ones aren't? I always have a hard time differetianting the installation ennemies.
