    @rico271 Italian, British and Germen. Probably should wait till more info from E3 though because there is some overlap.

    I've done 3 sorties to E-2H Phase 1, and so far I've reached the boss node in each attempt. The problem is that I haven't been able to kill the boss at all 3 attempts, and in one attempt the PT imp survived and tanked all hits during yasen which is frustrating.

    This is my fleet setup. All the WG42s and special tanks that I own are used here:


    Any tips on how to improve this?

    @Ryuuoh DeltaPlus Ok you need a bit of touch up, this is what I recommend.

    Ship order:
    Arashio/Kasumi/Yuudachi/Hatsuzuki/Tone/Mogami
    Ooyodo/Fletcher/Asashio/Kawakaze/Kinugasa/Myoukou

    You can also substitute one of the CAV for CVE like Taiyou/Shinyou, which will help for grabbing AS. They won't be needed in E3. This also lets you give the remaining CAV double attack setup with zuiun+T3.


    Equipments:
    CAVs - If you don't want to use CVE, then use one CAV to mule SPF and give the other one Zuiun+T3 shell. 3 SPF is enough.
    Yuudachi - Just give anti-imp setup (MG/lookouts). The T2 mortar is totally ineffective against installations on its own with no other equipments.
    Kawakaze/Asashio - Take the 11th Tank from Asashio and give it to Kawakaze, give Asashio a WG42. The 11th Tank will be more effective with a night DA setup.
    Ooyodo - Your Ooyodo has a night gun CI setup, not DA (2 red 1 secondary). Replace the green gun in the expansion with a MG.

    E2H done!

    Overall impressions: the first phase looks scarier than it actually is, while the second phase will likely become super easy once the friend fleets arrive.

    Here's the first phase fleet (transport):



    Routes B-A-C-E-M-N.

    Notes on main fleet: Umikaze had FCF for chipping, swapped it out for another WG for last dance. I used Teruzuki and Yuugumo because they were already holepunched and could equip lookouts + gun + MG for anti-imp loadout, but in retrospect, any non-holepunched DD with just one gun + lookouts + MG will do. I also probably have too much air power, but chipping went by so fast that I couldn't really tweak it.

    Notes on escort fleet: The Jervis is a dupe. If you only have one, save her for E3. I mostly brought her because I knew I'd be using her for second phase anyway, and she helps with the sub node. Garibaldi is honestly not needed, another 4-slot CL will do just fine if you want to save her for E3. Or you can just powerlevel Abruzzi for E3.

    As long as the imp dies, S-rank is pretty much guaranteed. Both LBAS had 4 bombers sent to boss. No supports used for chipping. Both supports used for last dance. It only took 5 sorties to clear this phase with the above fleet (1 A-rank, 4 S-ranks).

    Here's the second phase fleet (surface TF):



    Routes O-P-T-V.

    Swapped LBAS to 3 bombers + 1 fighter. Also used boss support for chipping (only flagship sparkled because I'm lazy). No node support used before last dance (didn't have any retreats during chipping).

    Notes on main fleet: Ark is used here for her huge damage bonus. Still, I saved one of the pasta BBs and both CAs for E3. Air power was enough for AS at boss node, even on last dance.

    Notes on escort fleet: Kitakami and Ooi are dupes. After last event, I decided to get CLT dupes just in case. Looks like it paid off. Pretty sure this map was the first time I used dupes in an event, period. Admittedly, the amount of TCI would probably be overkill once friend fleet arrives.

    The key here is - once again - killing the imps early. Otherwise they will tank everything and your TCI ships will have multiple targets alive for yasen. Took me 14 sorties to clear this phase (5 chipping runs, followed by 3 retreats, 5 chokes at boss and 1 successful S-rank kill).

    I should mention that I only started doing this map because I was sitting at hardcap resources anyway. It might be better to wait for friend fleet, at least for hard mode.

    And now... to restock and wait for E3 intel + friend fleet

    For E2H p2, are there any penalties for using a slow fleet?

    @Stormkeeper one more air raid if you still have 2BB1CV and 3CA only.

    Can I get a sanity check on this fleet comp for E2P1H? Seeing how most E2P2 comps focus on TCIs, I decided to use the same DDs I would when I get to that point, but if ASW is more important, I can replace Shigure with Asashio K2D (my Johnson here is a dupe -- I wasn't able to farm Fletcher last event, but I guess this works as well). I don't have a seaplane bomber with enough FP to get AS, so none of my CAVs can do daytime DA. I have all the CVLs though, so if swapping a CAV for a CVL to enable DA on the remaining CAV is preferable, I can do that as well.

    I also have a pasta BB dupe (Roma) -- would it make sense to include her in my E2P2 escort comp over a CLT?

    @Forcyte Use Zuihou over a CAV as she is not required elsewhere. That should give your AS. DD with 2 gun and wg will not do much against installation, so use them for utility like ASW and pt imp if you cannot equip them with either nuke comp (for main fleet) or DA (2 gun and tank/marine/11th regiment, only for escort). Kawakaze should not be using any gun at all as she cannot DA in daytime anyway. Either give her more WG/tank/daihaitsu (stack different category) or move those wg on Yuugumo to her if you don't have enough to go around. In that case Yuugumo can be used for pt imp as well.

    You cannot use BB in escort in the shortest route for P2 due to the large ship restriction.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I saw that you updated your E2 guide so I just went with that -- 4 sorties later and it's onto part 2.

    Damn, been referring to wikia advocating for the use of Nagato and Mutsu in part 1, even with 4BB 2CVL fleets, and then you guys just pretty much cleared it with transport fleets
