    @Kuropo Wait until they hit us with a 6-phase E3 map with 3 shiplocks.
    E1 has always been an easy map anyways.




    Death from above!

    E1 Hard Clear! ... a few days ago
    Unlocking: 6 runs including 2 retreats
    Boss: 8 runs, of which 5 S ranks, 1 A rank, 2 retreats

    Boss Fleet
    Lv 99 Richelieu Kai - 16in m7+GFCS +9, 38cm Quad Kai +6, Night Scout MAX, Type 1 AP +6
    Lv 99 Ryuujou Kai Ni - Suisei Egusa, TBM, Reppuu K2 (CarDiv 1/Skilled), NOAP (Skilled),
    Lv 99 Shouhou Kai - Ryuusei Kai (CarDiv 1/Skilled), Tenzan Murata, Suisei M22 (634sqn/Skilled), T53 Iwamoto MAX
    Lv 93 I-400 Kai - Kyoufuu Kai +6, Seiran
    Lv 76 Isokaze B Kai - 12.7cm C +5 x2, T22 Radar K4 LM
    Lv 76 Tanikaze D Kai - 12.7cm C +9, 12.7cm C, T22 Radar K4 LM

    Move Richelieu to the last slot for final kill to ensure maximum chip damage
    Other ships used for unlocking: Naka + 3 common DDs

    190 Fighter Power gives AS at boss Node N after LBAS, and AS+ at all others. (replace the Seiran with another SPF for final kill)

    Vanguard at all nodes except Line Ahead at boss Node N


    Notable Drops:
    Akashi, Mikura (after 11 S ranks 1 A rank and a crazy amount of retreats)


    Comments

    Pretty simple, just copied the steps to unlock and attack the boss. Note that the sub tank is actually a huge liability as it is VERY likely to go red before reaching the boss (~33% pass rate in my experience farming). It helps for the final kill as it protects your other ships from being killed at the boss, particularly if Richelieu is moved to the last slot to ensure maximum chip damage on the final boss form, but it mostly serves to ruin pass rate otherwise. From my experience, there are negligible bucket/resource savings from using sub tank in the long term because getting your fleet wrecked at the boss after one successful run costs as much as the numerous retreats with sub tank until finally reaching the boss.

    If pass rate with the sub tank becomes a bother, use Richelieu/CVL/CL/3DD and go CEFGMN instead (as well as for farming, for those who are impatient). Sub tank might also have better performance if using the 3-slot subs with the submarine radar to boost evasion, but this is conditional on them not being used in E3, so I did not use them.

    I wouldn't recommend common DDs or Mutsukis as the DD for boss fleet since you will want them to be capable of killing stuff on the surface nodes (especially if bringing sub tank!). Use a weaker K2 ship with no special functions, or a OASW if going by CEFGMN route. I also used night CVCI but tbh it was just for giggles. Richelieu is capable of beating the boss on her own... which also means if she fails for whatever reason (random taiha/attacks trash/crappy single attack, red T), the boss won't die. Not terribly fond of this one-trick boss design just for the purposes of sticking a almost 300 armour boss, but it's becoming a trend. At least it's not yet another subhime in E1.


    Holding off on E2 for now, based on advice by pretty much everybody who has attempted it, since E2 and E3 are looking to be thematically almost identical (Installation warfare+attacking a boss in Italy), which is going to lead to a lot of overlap of ships being used for function and historical bonuses. Back to the event on Thursday then. Good luck and happy hunting.



    EDIT: Quick question, has anybody received a U-511, Commandant, or Richelieu drop here when they already have 3 or more of them?

    The devs did mention the drop rate being dependent on the number owned. I'm loathe to mince up my existing Yuu dupes in order to get more FaTs and WG42s, but if it comes to that...

    I passed E1 in medium. Although the rest of the event I´ll go in casual because I have very few buckets and I dont want to deal with the Ship locking (Because I only have 100 slots).

    This map was relatively easy and it only cost me 2 hours and about 6-8 buckets. Because i don't have Richelieu, the boss cost me a little more (Mainly because my TCI only deals her 100 damage). In the Last Dance with a Support Shelling, LBAS and luck I managed to sink her with two TCI.

    I really doubt I can pass E2 in these conditions, but I´ll give it a try.

    @211303: Been holding off on event for locking reasons. Not sure about historic bonuses at all for this event other than Euro based and it seems that Richelieu is good for E-1. EDIT - saw some initial historic numbers on Reddit, though not sure how accurate. Based upon that, it appears 100% safe to lock Richliue to E-1(???). Also, seems best farming for new ships is at E-1 (new DE) or E-2 (new DD), but no idea if farming prior to clear is a good idea when planning.

    Thanks for the guides/walkthroughs in advance. I know information is still being obtained, but anything you can suggest for E-1 at all (e.g. " confirmed safe to lock Richelieu to E1")? Need to get started at some point.

    @goesto11

    BB allocation looks like this (assuming no dupes, and owning all Euro ships, which you do)
    E1: Richelieu (Godly bonus damage that singlehandedly destroys boss)
    E2: Bismarck, 1 pasta BB (2 FBB needed, alternatively use Nagamutsu touch, can also use two pasta BB if one is dupe)
    E3: Nelson, Warspite, 1 pasta BB (1st boss: 2 FBB max - upspeed Nelson or use another FBB, or pasta BB dupe, 2nd boss: 2BB max)

    First boss battle, first S-rank and... first Mikura.
    Sometimes my luck scares me (even though I believe that the right number of DE for 100-slotters is 0).

    Edit: E1H cleared in the minimum number of sorties with Richelieu, Taiyou(2tb, 2f), Junyou(3tb, 1f), Jintsu, Isokaze and Hamakaze (Maestrale, Shimakaze and Asashimo also got tagged), 4 bombers to the boss and no supports.

    Also, got another Richelieu.

    @NanashiYoukai: Much appreciated. Ugh. This seems an event in which dups/clones are quite useful. :/ Had a dupe Richeliue (still have a lvl 1 dup Bismarck), but you know my feelings on that so will have to clear with "just" having all ships. Question is second FBB for E-3. Will save Roma for E-3 (Italia for E-2), but I'm guessing worth the cost to sortie Iowa over say Kongou K2C given a mild 1.1x bonus. Any other thoughts/updates you'd like to make to your clearing report?

    Bit OT, but gotta say that unless there's some serious boss debuff for E-3, the bonuses I've seen (Reddit) don't look all that high for Hard. Anzio Hime (damaged) has 888hp with 339 armor (shades of Summer 2015). 1.25x (British) bonus isn't all that much. OK save Jervis for E-3, but while her stats are good for Kai, not exactly Poi K2 or Ayanami K2 either. You get the point. Also wondering impact of all those installation escorts for Anzio Hime. Gonna affect load out for sure = less NB TCI DD.

    Thanks again.

    EDIT - You mention Richelieu/CVL/CL/3DD and going CEFGMN for farming. Pain to keep unlocking, but wondering whether worth it to farm prior to clear on Casual.for Mikura. Drop rate (2.1% so far) is decent-ish. Hard is listed at 3.7% - higher, but well, Hard and certainly more expensive and won't have what I'd have to think is an easy S-rank at the boss for Casual (not so much for Hard). However, seems I'd have to unlock every TWO boss kills, so perhaps just better to clear and move on (where I'm leaning right now).

    You or anyone else have thoughts on this?

    Cleared E1H at a leisurely pace and managed to pick up a Mikura on my 2nd boss S-rank. Fleet comp was by the book, but will add that I sparkled the sub-tank to increase pass-rate (the two turn-backs I had were both attributed to the sub at L). No supports needed. Was using vanguard formation at all pre-boss nodes, and line-ahead at the boss as usual.



    MIA: None

    @NanashiYoukai When you say 2 FBB for E2, that's Bismarck and one Pasta?

    Also any other noteworthy ship classes to think about for locking?

    @firehawk12 - From what I looked at Ark Royal seems to be one you want for E-2. Jervis for E-3 (sigh scrapped a dup of her per SOP >_>) given will need NB TCI and bonuses for RN ships. Note all the installations for E-2 & E-3 = will want to save your high-end (not Mutsuki class) tankhatsu DD for those maps. Probably Zara and/or Pola for E-2 (not sure about E-3). In fact, I'd probably avoid using CA(V) on this map. Save better CVL for later maps as well (seen some use Ryuuhou on this map though Shouhou and Hiyou seem safe to use (Shouhou for sure). Keep Taiyou and/or Shinyou available for TCF use on E-2. I'd also keep Iowa for E-3, especially if not using any clones (where I'm at). Oops, almost forgot. Definitely save Nelson & Warspite for E-3.

    TL:DR = from what I can gather, you definitely want to use Richelieu here, then a good, but not great CL (e.g. Naka K2), a couple low end CVL and a couple lower end, lower luck, non-tankhatsu K2 DD (e.g. Fubuki, maybe Ushio or Akatsuki. Isokaze KB may work here as well). For unlocking, can probably get away with high level stock kai DD on top of 2x DD using for clear. Farming may be a different deal. Seems many are getting a lucky drop while clear. I'm still on the fence here, but while can use same fleet to unlock on Casual, unlocking after every two sorties seems too much of a pain in the ass to me. :/ Hopefully I'll get a lucky drop (though rather get a lucky drop for new DD on E-2 and have to farm this post clear than the other way around TBH).

    [EDIT] Regarding E-2, Bismarck seems to be a solid choice for sure and one Italian FBB as well given historic bonus. Problem is that you need FBB and bonus for E-3 as well. USN get a small bonus (1.1x from what I've seen). No question Italian FBB & Bismarck clones (among others) will help with this event. :/ Bit frustrating. Hope KC isn't going towards that as thing for Hard event clears. As for Kongou-class, doesn't seem to be recommended much from what I've seen. If that's all you have, then use what ya got, but as others have noted, historic bonuses do seem to be quite important (which is why I really wanted Fletcher on top of having all ships (collection). Not useful this time around, but well, historic bonus trend is real so I'm sure down the road).

    FYI - definitely worth doing E-2 on Hard for the M4 DD tank. That seems to have a special bonus for Anchorage water oni in E-3.

    Hope it helps. If any of the above is incorrect, please let me know so I can adjust accordingly.

    ----------------------------

    Question to all, are there going to be any friend fleets for this event? Haven't seen anything, but may very well have missed it. Fine if not (perhaps a break after issues last event), but would like to know. If FFleets later, that may impact my farming decisions.
