Mechanics

Participation requirements

  • Must have a 75% sortie win ratio
  • Must have 5 empty ship slots for new ships
  • Must have 20 free equipment slots

Special Mechanics

  1. Combined Fleet (E-3 and E-5)
  2. Choosable difficulty
    • Different difficulties give different medals, equipment and materials
    • When the difficulty is changed, the boss's health bar will be reset
    • Once the map is cleared (boss HP bar is depleted and killed), you CANNOT go back and change the difficulty. 
  3. This event has 3 ranks: easy (丙), normal (乙), hard (甲).
  4. There is no ship locking for this event.
  5. Support Expeditions are available. Expedition 141 Focuses on Support for Normal Nodes, Whereas Expedition 142 Focuses Support on Boss Nodes. The Expeditions DO REQUIRE that you have 2 DDs in your fleet. Do take note that their expeditions will end early after you finish one sortie, so try to make the most use out of them.

Branching rules

Tips

  • 4 FBB + 1 CV + Akitsumaru (1st fleet) and 1 CL + 1 CLT + 4 DD (2nd fleet) will go either A->B->F->H->K or C->E->F->H->K (random). 4 battles total either way.
  • 2 FBB + 2 CAV + 2 CVL (1st fleet) and 1 CL + 1 CA + 4 DD (2nd fleet) will go C->E->H->K. This is only 3 battles total and is probably the shortest route to boss. Though there is a fuel maelstrom at E.
