    Finished Part 1 after3 days of Last dance. Havent had this much trouble in a while with a map and this is the easy part.

    Basically ran the comp and setup from 211303 minus 1 of those mortars i was lacking. easy S ranks before last dance but once last dance came along, my girls decided to miss like stormtroppers.

    Even my last run, i didn't think i was gonna make it, too many chuuhas and DJ hime was still alive but all 4 girls just went for the boss and myoukou managed to do 85 damage on the bosses last 63 health. (Pola valiantly tried attacking DJ hime afterwards but only scratched)


    I did one run of Part 2 and got an A rank, pretty sure if not everyone failed to cut in, it would have been an S, so i'll hope to reach LD before FF comes and try to finish this map with some friends.

    As for FF, the first batch will come on Wednesday.
    Thanks. BTW, how much damage will the boss get if she gets hit with a KaMi tank + Daihatsu Tank + WG42? I screwed around with the fleet loadouts for a few runs and managed to get two close kills on the boss on LD by placing at least one DD (Ooshio) with that loadout in the escort fleet (unfortunately, she didn't get the chance to use that on the boss). Anyway, gonna revert to that fleet comp you have at the first page. Hopefully, I can kill the boss and end P1 tonight.

    @silentcap Attack power is around 327 x1. The problem is your DA ship will do 300+ x2 depending on the improvement. Should be clear which is better for harbor at night.

    Thanks. Also finally managed to get past P1 LD after Ooyodo sunk the boss with 2 main guns and 2 WG42s. Welp, P2's the only one left in this map.

    @211303: Thanks for the guide. A few questions.

    E-2 Part 1

    - Question - You have WG42 + T4 20cm Rockets on Michishio and Ooshio. Is that better than 2x WG42 (I have 8 so supply not an issue)? Looked at the chart you posted (thanks for that) and it looks very close in terms of which to use. Both are "same type" so no synergy bonus AFAIK. Can use the T4 20cm - have 2, but wondering if guide assumes players don't have that many WG42 or not.

    E-2 Part 2 Fleet

    - Question - If Abukuma is not luck modded, should she be flag instead of Ayanami (my Ayanami is luck modded)? Bit of a risk with Ayanami 2nd + Searchlight, but OTOH, ABKM NB TCI trigger chance won't be all that much unless flag (or luck modded) so planning on swapping positions with those two.


    - Question - Thoughts on support expeditions for Part 2. Read not needed/optional for Part 1, but thoughts on Part 2?

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    Torpedo cut-in rate from a default Abukuma in flagship position is pretty decent in my opinion. Although not a mandatory pick here, I think sortieing her would increase your chances to clear the map. The boss takes several torpedo cut-ins to kill.

    In the entire map, I have only used boss support expeditions for the Final kill in phase 2. No normal node support at all.

    Phase 2 took me 7 Pre-final kill sorties and 3 Final kill attempts to clear.

    @Kuropo: Thanks. That's what I thought - I'll need to swap places with ABKM & Ayanami. Now watch Ayanami get hit to taiha before firing in NB since 2nd with searchlight. I know you want to do so RNG. As for support, I'll see how it goes a bit for Part 2. Boss support is fine, but do wonder about the pass rate. Got BB Hime gatekeeper at Node T (which makes me wonder about node support TBH). Get that there are some historic bonuses (particularly Italian FBB & Pola vs. BBH), but still...

    Any thoughts on the WG42 vs. T4 20cm question?:

    The pre-boss nodes look scarier than they actually are, at least in my experience. Out of my 10 total sorties (in phase 2), I have only retreated twice. S ranks at BB Hime(s) node are quite likely too. It is most likely due to high boost in firepower for Italian BBs and Ark Royal at that node.
    Screenshot from wikiwiki:


    I have not checked on difference between the wurfgerat and new mortar, but on "nuke setups" it should not matter since you are likely to deal overkill damage regardless.

    - - - Updated - - -

    As a result, I think E-2-2 is very "farmable" on Hard difficulty if you do/have not obtained Grecale during clearing runs.

    Well that's certainly good to read. Won't complain if I get a lucky Grecale drop (seriously RNG, won't mind at all), but not like I'm counting on that either. Eh, still working on some things, but probably just end up going with the recommended comps and load outs for clearing at least.

    One thing I would like to see is that after one clears an event, ship locks no longer apply. Make post clear farming a bit better, especially for those on Hard.

    Finally got my Grecale after 54 runs in medium A-rank farming (reset farming not recommended here)



    For those who have cleared E2 on medium, or planning to clear on hard but not sure if FF will help in post-clear farming, here is the stripped-down fleet that I used in E2 medium (together with 1 LBAS base of 1 fighter 3 bombers to boss node):



    Since your goal is to get A-ranks only, you can afford to use 1 CV 1 FBB for this, and dedicate the rest to ASW or anti-imp (I left 2 of them with torpedoes so that their closing torpedoes can clean out any remaining ships in the boss node). If you've cleared the map, you can go for a stronger equip setup in the both main (e.g Yura DA) and escort fleet (torpedo cut-in) to get consistent S-ranks without having to change the ships.

    From my experience, pre-boss nodes in normal are no threats (with rare taiha retreats at node T) and the boss node in LD form can be easily A-ranked (or almost to the point of S-rank) in the day. Resource consumption is on average 300-400 fuel and ammo with LBAS sortie included. The resource sink will come from repairing your FBB if she gets chuuha or taiha, which is also the reason why i opted for 1 FBB only.'

    All the best for your Grecale farming!
