Dutch Harbor-chan only had 380 hp back then.
Northern Hime has 500 hp, higher armor and nearly double the firepower. You aren't gonna be brute forcing her without sanshiki or have 12 ships pounding on her like we did Midway Hime's initial form in E4

Actually the best tactic against the trollsub is to ignore it entirely. The real problem is the night battle node, really. After that, it's pretty normal (well as normal as things get when you've got a flagship kai'd Abyssal Cruiser waiting for you, but I digress).

Posted what I did a few pages back. Won't repeat.

If you're having this much trouble with E-1, E-2 will crush you. That thing is immensely frustrating. E-3 and E-4 don't even come close to it in terms of difficulty.
I haven't tried E-5 yet, 'cause I suffered badly on the resource front today, but I've heard it's not as hard as E-2.

On that note: What's the expedition to help E-2?
aww come on, it just 6 ships
for me I just use boss support expedition for its final form ( 2DD 2CV/L 2BB )

E-5 is a matter of getting past the night battle nodes. The insane part is how its entirely possible to hit BOTH over the course of a single sortie -- and then the final Night Battle node ALSO checks for LOS after you win it, so its entirely possible that you get dead-ended if you don't have enough LOS.

So when you get routed south on the first node, thank whatever RNG gods you pray to.

A lot of people on the JP sites were saying that if they hit the North route they'd just go home after the first sortie.

I actually found the night battle to be fairly easy for E5. The only nightfighting equip I had was the recon plane, but I was only stopped by E5 night battle node once.

Well, the lack of levels on my ships have come back to bite me in the rear for E6 in the form of LOS requirements. My hands are way too tied if I try to meet the LOS requirements... as both of my CV or CVLs would wind up being reppu mules without any ability to attack whatsoever. Not good.

10 minutes. How did you do so? 3 runs per ships x (6 +2) (for support). That is like 24 rusn of 1-1. Wait for Maruyu to repair too

But on hindsight, actually i should not have got the morale to 85. I think 75 and it will still handle two runs just fine
I just send the ship I want to sparkle and a low level destroyer to 1-1 and it raises morale to about 63, I repeat this until my fleet is sparkled.

That's why i am so pissed,i understand no one could have anticipated how hard the map would be,but these having two problems at the first map are already draining me.

Tried again,that damn night battle node is just too tough.

Here's the method I picked off of a JP blog, that works really well. It's a little fiddly but the resource gains are really high.
  1. Make the ship you want to sparkle your flagship. It should be a relatively powerful ship, like a destroyer around level 20.
  2. Add two level 1 destroyers or light cruisers; every admiral has a couple of them sitting around. If you don't, just use low-level ships that won't steal the flagship's MVP.
  3. Send them through 1-1. If a ship gets badly damaged on the first node, go back. Don't go into night battle unless you need it to get a victory ranking (I.E. you haven't sunk any enemy ships.)
  4. You'll get 1 or 2 new destroyers as you do this.
  5. When you're done, refuel only the flagship. If the other two ships in your fleet have their fuel in the red, or are moderately or severely damaged (lightly damaged is fine), swap them out with one of the new ships you just picked up.
  6. Dismantle the ships you've removed from your fleet, or use them for modernization material.
  7. Do this three times per ship you want to sparkle.

You'll get a ton of steel off of this method, and it costs nothing beyond the fuel/ammo cost of the single ship you're trying to sparkle. It takes a bit of time, but it's well worth it.

By all accounts, while it should still be difficult, you should already know what to expect, and what's more how to clear it, because of all the info we provided.

Personally, I found E-1 challenging, but doable. The real issue comes with E-2, where on top of the LOS conditions (which forced me to craft one more Saiun to round up my total to four, and equip both CVLs I had with 2 Saiun each), you now have to deal with the stuff on the way to the boss.

Like Cyprene said, if you're whining about E-1 now, E-2 will absolutely crush you.

Good job cloud04. Ready for E-3 and onward? Only need enough ships and bauxite for that one.

I really think E-6 was specifically designed to troll on players.

It's so rare, pretty much one in 50 tries kinda things, that I got through the pre-boss node without any damages to my sparked fleet. And you can guess what happened:

The fucking compass diverted my fleet away from the boss node despite i had much more than 110 (probably 118) effective LOS and have encountered boss countless time with this same set up. Ran again this time but this time with half the fleet damaged, and it headed to boss.


I felt like they have been specifically targeted me for some unknown reasons. I can barely get to boss recently anymore. Sparkled fleet no. Yamato, got hit to red every try pre-boss. Reset API. No. Clear cache, no. I think i already spent all day and barely can count the number of times i could make to boss. Won't be surprised now if i could finally kill the boss then suddenly the game crashed and it won't count.

You're talking to someone who has, as of this writing, hit those maps with a fleet of girls from level 30 to 52, and in one case, level 9 (Ooyodo). So yes, it's doable with mid-level ships as long as you still can make the LOS requirement needed for the stage.

Need I remind everyone THIS is what I started with?



This is how they are now:

They'll level as they do the maps -- heck, my Ooyodo is level 41 now. My Akagi and Kaga, who started this at around 64~, are both level 76 now. XD
my akagi and kaga are fine 88 and 83 respectively, hiryuu and souryuu around 50ish... XD
just somewhat hard to juggle doing this..+ 2 dmt and typesetting mangas and playing sc2 lol but yea...i think my only worry is my reso..im not even past 30k for all except ammo...and baux is at 14k, 22k on fuel and 28k on steel

^ I spent less than 20k bauxite clearing E3~E5. You'll be fine.
