Difficulty taken:
E1 – Medium; E2 – Medium; E3 – Easy;
E4 – Easy; E5 – Easy; E6 – Medium;
E7 – Easy

UPDATE 09/07/2015:
After farming for a while until all buckets were used up…
I got all of my desired ships… Harusame, Roma, Mizuho, Umikaze, Unryuu, and Zuihou… along with other ships such as Taigei, Amatsukaze, etc…

[DD] Shigure Kai-2:

Star Shell

Using this composition, generally my fleet went through A-D-Z. A chance getting sent from A to B which has battleship enemy or F which leads to the dead end.
Generally it’s easy map. As usual the first map of event.
Not knowing that all the ship which were sent to this very first map got stamped (blue-colored), I sent my best destroyers to this map. With this, I was screwed. I’m afraid that I couldn’t take medium difficulty in the next maps because of ship locking mechanics.

The prizes for clearing this map in medium difficulty are: Irako, Furniture Fairy, Reinforcement Expansion, and Combat Provisions x3.
Notable drop that I got: Nowaki (already have), Ooyodo, Tokitsukaze, and Urakaze (already have)

….eerrr….
Because I made a big mistake in the first map… I ended taking easy difficulty in this map…
The fleet composition above went through A-C-E-H-Z.
Before using this composition, I deployed 2BB(V)+4CV (main fleet)… and ended having out of fuel at the boss node by going through A-C-D-E-H-Z….

Clearing prizes (easy difficulty): Type 97 Torpedo Bomber (Murata Squadron), Reinforcement Expansion, and Repair Fairy
Truly regret that I didn’t take medium difficuly… because you can get 15m Duplex Rangefinder + Type 21 Air Radar Kai Ni as one of prizes…
Notable drop: Urakaze (already have, a lot), Tanikaze, Mizuho, Shoukaku (already have), Zuikaku (already have), Zuihou (4x), Maruyu (2x), and Amatsukaze

[CV] Kaga Kai:

Shiden Kai 2
Reppuu (Strong Gale)
Saiun (Iridescent Cloud)

Using that fleet composition… I always went through B-D-E-G-Z…
I think… if you familiar with night battle node… this map is easier than map 5-3…
The boss of this map is Airfield Hime which is installation type enemy… It means that Type 3 Shell will be super effective against boss…
And also… node-C is a nice place for farming rare ship such as Akashi and Yuugumo-class… personally, I got Akashi… yes, in easy difficulty…

Prizes (easy difficulty): Hayasui, Underway Replenishment, and Combat Provisions.
Rare ship drop that I got so far: Boss node (Kiyoshimo and Nagato), Node-C (Akigumo and Akashi).

My effort for leveling Akitsushima above Lv100 wasn’t in vain after all… hahahahahahahaha!

Finished map E-5 at August 13rd, 2015… thus I collected more resources before engaging E-6…

This map is mostly air strike battle… we need a lot of good fighter planes… at this point I only have 1 Reppuu and 1 Shiden Kai-2, the rest are common fighter planes…
Using the composition above… route taken is A-C-E-G-H-L-Z….
Most of time… retreated in node L… which has 2 Wo-class that using “pacman” planes that will our fleet badly…
Sparkling a whole fleet is a good choice for increasing evasion…

At this point, my high-leveled Destroyer left is… Ushio Kai-2… because of my mistake in the first map and the ship-locking mechanics…
Escort fleet needs at least 2 Destroyers… I ended using Yukikaze which is still level 32 as entering E-6….

E-6 is really evil map… even just medium difficulty… it’s enough to make my head boiling….
But… the funny thing is… The last dance… I didn’t realize it was the last dance until the boss gauge exploded… I think the boss need to be killed two more times… so, I didn’t prepare a support expedition… and killed boss in the first try! YAY~!
The reason taking medium or hard difficulty is mostly because of its prize… Prototype Flight Deck Catapult…
Maybe this song is indeed true… HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!





Prizes in medium difficulty: Prototype Flight Deck Catapult, Underway Replenishment x2, Improvement Material x6, and Medal
Drop so far: Urakaze x3 (already have), Hamakaze (already have)…. T___T

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
What is this map!? Troll map!? This is easy difficulty, right!?

Last boss in this map has super ultra wonderful thick armor… but her armor can be reduced by killing mini boss in node X and Y… but it will be reset next day at 00:00
Using many trials and errors… in my case, the composition above is the most effective… Allowing me to kill node X, Y, L with S-rank in day battle in one trip and going to boss node Z… and also last dance…
Route taken with this composition:
– Alternate 1: E-G-J-L-Z (preferred for last dance, but the chance is slim)
– Alternate 2: B-X-D-H-Y-L-Z (standard route for boss, and also for debuffing)
– Alternate 3: B-X-D-H-J-L-Z (another standard route for boss)
– Alternate 4: B-X-D-F-G-J-L-Z (bad route for boss, just retreat if you enter node F)
– Alternate 5: B-A-C (compass troll)

If only I have Akitsumaru, I would replace Maya Kai-2… because fleet containing Akitsumaru always leads you from node D to node H….
Sometimes… I also switched Hayasui with Haguro…

Another composition which I use is carrier task force, but in my opinion it’s too hard to reach Z node…
Main: Ryuujou Kai-2, Fusou Kai-2, Yamashiro Kai-2, Maya Kai-2, Kaga Kai, Hiryuu Kai-2
Escort: Yukikaze Kai, Kirishima Kai-2, Abukuma Kai-2, Shigure Kai-2, Haguro Kai-2, Myoukou Kai-2
The only safe route is E-G-J-M-Z… if you enter node B or Y from J, just retreat… and also node M has two Wo-class with flaming eyes that can hurt your ships badly….

I used up around 6 demecon (repair fairy/goddess) when running carrier task force… but never use one when running surface task force…
Surface task force is rather expesive though…

THE MAIN ENEMY IN THIS MAP IS NOT THE ABYSSAL, BUT THE COMPASS!!!
This page will sum it up…

I completed E-7 from full health bar within ~21 hours in the same day, exactly in August 25th, 2015…
In my case… killed S-rank X and Y around 5 times to make killing final boss easier…

This song fits better for boss battle… I played it a lot while engaging E-7…

Anyway, prize for completing this map in easy mode: Teruzuki, Medal
Noteble drop: SALT & TEARS (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
Teruzuki



The resources that were used for completing this event above… from E-1 to E-7 approximately:
Oil, Ammo, and Steel: ~60,000
Bauxite: ~25,000
Bucket: ~430
Demecon: 6

Event though I got the ships that I want… the following ships are still missing… I hope they will drop easier in the normal map…
YuugumoI-401 ShioiAkitsumaru
IsokazeHayashimoAsagumo
YamagumoAsashimoKazagumo
HatsukazeMikuma
