    Reached my quota now of 900 buckets. Ammo and Fuel reached to 200k seems appropriate for the long endurance-tier of attrition war. Time to focus in boosting the bauxite now.

    @dandan550 I wish I could get that much, but I've got to switch my focus to bauxite. I'll probably end up with about 80k. I've got about 148k fuel and ammo though and 800 buckets, and I'm maxed out on steel so I'm doing okay, but I'd be much better off for farming if I had 200k+ and about 130k+ bauxite and a few hundred more buckets.
    As long as I don't run into Kitanda I guess I should be alight though (he was never heard from again).

    @Hoshimaru I was starting to hoard after I finish the previous event so I got lots of time to prepare. Stocking ammo and fuel was delayed thanks to that quest chain I did before.

    A combination of daily and weekly quest, orel and stuff help.

    Yeah I think I'm wasting too much resources all the time, I've got a fairly steady influx but one-time quests and EOs (well, pretty much only 4-5 because I don't dare try my hand at 5-5 and 6-5, didn't finish 4-5 this month yet either) take a chunk out of it.
    This is my resource graph for the last 2 months http://i.imgur.com/LjS6l97.png

    @Hoshimaru: Getting bauxite to 80k to go along with 150k fuel & ammo may prove be a wise move. May not need that much, but if you do, bauxite is hardest to ramp as you know. As for buckets, 800 buckets is a pretty good amount. Potentially could use more if you do a lot of farming and RNG goes against you, but still that's a decent number. Personally, I've never used 700+, but seen the occasional comments of a player using more. As for Kitanda, possible as boss or boss escort (wouldn't that be fun, Boss with 2x AA Hime escorts >_<). If she does show up, at least this time around the debuff mechanic should be a lot better (i.e. some form of debuff confirmation and NO dumb-ass reset feature).

    @dandan550: Issue with stockpiling IMO is when you have expensive projects to do on top of the usual daily/weekly/etc. quests, monthly medal runs, and such. Some quest chains can be expensive, but LSC (incl. Maruyu for luck modding) or big equipment fodder spamming really take a toll. I had to recover from below soft cap (about 25k or so) for both ammo & bauxite thanks to 46cm and Type 32 RADAR spamming right after the end of last event. Gonna do the same again (3rd time >_>) after this event as well to the extent I can. (Hopefully I'll have decent resources).

    This is the state of my base before the event breaks out, with all EOs except 1-6 complete. It certainly didn't help that 5-5 did a number on me this month needing 15+ runs, although that is the norm rather than the exception these days. Considering that I spent last month trying for top 100 ranking, and as a member of the tryhard Saiki server, I guess I'm pretty satisfied with what I've got. (It was either that, or spend an entire month idling with all resources hardcapped...)


    Now, I actually do have a question. I have less than 50 screws left in my base (down from 300+ at the start of this year, after having finally paid some keen attention to upgrading), and there are still a couple things I have left that I would like to upgrade eventually. There's no way all of these projects will get done any time soon due to limited screws as well as fodder equipments, so I'm basically sorting out those which may actually be useful from those that can stay as dreams for now. The following are my choices, which of these do you folks think would be most useful?


    Type 21 Fighter (Skilled) - 0 to +10 (current project)

    Type 21 Air Radar Kai - +6 to +10

    Prototype 51cm - +6 to +9
    16in m7 GFCS - +6 to +9
    16in m7 - +6 to +9
    41cm Kai - +6 to +9
    41cm Proto - +6 to +9

    Sextuple Oxy Torps - +6 to +9
    Quintuple Oxy Torps - +6 to +10


    I am almost definitely going to use the slider for the large gun and torpedo upgrades, as I really hate losing valuable equipment for no effect due to bad luck and I don't really have patience to spam developments even though I could theoretically afford it. I have 24 x 46cm guns and 16 x Type 32 radars altogether, so any fodder used will be deducted from that, and as for Quint torps used as fodder for torp upgrading, I have to crank out a new KitaOoi K2 for each Quint I spend, which I consider extremely troublesome (even though the upgrade cost doubles for using the slider on torps). Type 21 planes and Air radars and 41cms are thankfully no object, I wouldn't use the slider for those.

    Any thoughts? The above are the only actually useful projects I have left on my list. Thanks in advance for any advice.


    (As for 'upgrade another copy of something else useful that's cheaper' ... I just have this silly policy that I only upgrade one copy of each equipment. It's certainly not optimising in any sense of the word. But when one considers that just upgrading one copy of stuff eats screws at a pretty good rate already, if I was to upgrade multiples some things would just be ignored forever, and I don't like that thought.)

    I need help! Who should I be working on? I dont plan on clearing the event, I just want some new ships.

    @Lotus Senpai First, I don't use KC3, but pretty sure there's a feature/box you can check to make the taiha (heavily damaged) ship warning a lot more apparent. You don't want to sink ships (obviously). Second, the event starts in less than a day so only so much can be done. You definitely want to WAIT for front-line/vanguard to work on maps and post info. I'd wait at least 24 hours before starting. Could wait more if you want. Another issue is just lack of certain ships, including some common ones. Equipment matters quite a bit in this game. You may or may not have what you need, and there is the resource factor as well. Not sure of either one. Even if only on Easy & not trying to clear, resources will dictate emergency lvl grinding, what equipment you can try to spam crafting, etc.

    Suggestions in spoiler below. Kept it to topic (event) for the most part rather than any long term suggestions which are better handled in the general help section after the event. If you need help during the event, feel free to post questions in the relevant event map thread.

    [+] Spoiler

    NOTE! Make sure to modernize ships as best you can - at least max FP/torp/armor with AA as best you can. Prioritize best in class (or waifu/favorites, but stats/abilities (e.g. can carry tanks, top AACI, etc.) matter).

    • DD: Possibly your biggest problem. You need a good number of DD for a variety of tasks - NB (both DA & TCI attacks), AACI (Akizuki-class when you get them), Anti-installation & TCF (daihatsu/tank carriers), and OASW/ASW. You also don't have best in class ships like Yuudachi, Ayanami, etc. Even if not at Kai ni, you should have those two among others (FYI - Yukikaze & Shimikaze are still good with just Kai remodel so those are two more you want (especially Yukikaze)). For Event: You should have at least 7 DD at Kai. Really at least level 30 IMO (unless Kai remodel is higher). Given the ships you have listed, level Hibiki to Kai & lvl 30+ for sure and probably Ushio next. After that - pick non Mutsuki class (Mutsuki-class Kai ni are OK - can be useful, but don't have time for that now). NOTE!! If you get some best in class types drops, especially early - and you very well might get common drops like Yuudachi or Ayanami, ramp those instead to Kai/lvl 30+. Lastly, some DD to target/keep: Yuudachi, Ayanami, Yukikaze, Shimakaze, Arashio, Asashio, Ooshio, Kasumi, and of course ANY Akizuki-class. Not an exclusive, list, but some to target for your fleet.
    • DE: Ramp Kunashiri to Kai for OASW work.
    • CL(T): Continue to ramp Kitakami towards Kai ni. Do not bother using her as CLT until she's at Kai ni as two slots really limits things. Should be fine with Jintsuu Kai ni and Naka Kai ni as back up for CL. Could continue to work on Sendai and Isuzu if you want, but not top priority.
    • CA: Also a problem. Need at least Kai remodel ships and only have one which will not do. Get Myoukou, Takao and Tone to Kai (don't forget to modernize). Could also get Atago to Kai since she's better at Kai than Ashigara, but Ashigara might work well enough with the others so not a priority. FYI - you'll eventually want all 4 Myoukou-class Kai ni. Lastly, if you get Maya (and you should, fairly common drop) keep her and ramp up. She's not great at Kai, but you do want Maya Kai ni for AACI.
    • CAV: Get Kumano or Mikuma to Kai. Kumano's closer, but Mikuma gives you 20.3cm (No.3) which is best medium gun right now with improvement. Potentially could do both, but doubt you'd need 3 CAV on Easy.
    • CVL: Get Chitose, Chiyoda & Junyou all to Kai. Probably worth getting Hiyou to Kai as well since you lack CV. After that, can keep working on Chitose/Chiyoda to Kai ni (only level 50).
    • CV: Did you sink Akagi? Kaga to Kai ASAP and keep ramping. Obviously, if you get new CVs, keep them and start leveling up.
    • FBB: Not much you can do for now for those listed since kai ni is too far away for Haruna & Hiei. More levels/working on Kai ni won't hurt, but not a priority.
    • BB: Get Nagato #1 to Kai and modernize. Also, do not work on copies until you get your base fleet established. There are some limited exceptions for equipment, but overall that XP is better served elsewhere.
    • BBV: Fine
    • SS: May not need SS(V) with event. Happens on occasion, but not all that frequently. To the extent you work on SS(V), focus on I-58 and I-13.
    • LHA: Eh, could use more levels, but not a priority for you.
    • AR: Event's here so maybe not the highest priority, but get Akashi to kai quickly. Very important since Kai gives much better odds with improvement when not using guaranteed slider. Throw her in PVP as flag and should get this done fairly quickly.

    Thumbs up



    That's the best I could stockpile for. Unfortunately my resources (particularly bauxite) are borderline for clearing the event and get all the new & old ships missing (need to farm for up to 6 including Graf), nevermind clearing on all Hard. :(

    One thing is sure - I will never​ farm ships on Hard again, unless I really runs out of time.


    Why marry ships when I already have Space Shuttle Discovery as my waifu? ?_?

    @Cosmic Penguin That's a pretty good stockpile. Could use some more buckets but you got nothing to worry about.
