Help:Resource Farming

From Kancolle Wiki
(Redirected from Resource Farming)
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This article aims to provide advice on the better ways to farm the main resources (FuelAmmunitionSteelBauxite) and consumables (Instant repairInstant construction MaterialDevelopment materialImprovement material).

As some general rules
  • Expeditions are the best way to gain most resources, with the advantage of being AFK compatible,
  • Quests are often the better way to farm consumables, especially screws Improvement material,
  • Sorties generally provide the greatest hourly gain for any resource/consumable, but at the cost of more active playtime and some other resources.
Notes
  • Special resources are not detailed here, as they are difficult to "farm", please refer to each individual page for more details.
  • Only repeatable quests are listed on this page, as they are the most relevant in a "farming mindset",
    • One-time quests can also be a major source of resources. Please refer to Quests for more details.
  • Except for screws, monthly expeditions are also omitted here, as while they reward great amounts of resources and consumables, they are incompatible with a "farming mindset",
  • Events and limited-time quests are often a great way to gain all types of consumables, with some events introducing great resource farming spots.
    • Please refer to the current event's page for more details on such addition.

General Tips

Sortie Tips

Resources in sorties are gained from Resource Nodes and Scraping dropped ships.

  • Using the lightest possible fleet is recommended to reduce the average sortie costs and so maximize gains.
  • For resource nodes, using appropriate gear (Landing Craft/Amphibious Vehicle/Drum Canister) is essential to maximize gains:

  • A battle has to be completed (win or loss) after the resource node in order to claim the resources (refreshing the game will not work).
    • Exceptions are resource nodes that are dead-end nodes.
    • Items are rewarded in any situation, so refreshing the game is fine to farm them.
  • In the following guide, Landing Craft and Amphibious Vehicle are fully interchangeable, and refer to "type A craft"

1-6 Special Case

1-6 is a unique case for farming, not listed in the following guide. Unlike all other node types, the final node N in 1-6 rewards great amount of all four resources FuelAmmunitionSteelBauxite, but only for the 7 clearing runs.

  • It is therefore highly encouraged to clear 1-6 each month to earn those easy to get resources,
  • 1-6 additionally reward a Item Icon Present Box.png Present Box which is a nice asset for emergency situations.

6-3 Special Case

6-3 has "Aerial Reconnaissance Nodes"' and not "resource nodes", being a special kind of nodes only seen here, giving ammo Ammunition, bauxite Bauxite, and DevMats Development material.

  • See here for more details.

Expedition Tips

Expeditions come in various types and forms, being each more or less suited for some resources or even farming methods.

  • Regarding resources:
    • Some expeditions will reward a "modest" amount of resources, but on a short timer, being great on an "hourly gain" perspective, being more suited alongside active gameplay,
    • Some expeditions will reward a "high" amount of resources, but on a long timer, being great on an "absolute gain" perspective, being more suited alongside AFK periods.
  • Regarding consumables:
    • Some expeditions will reward a "fixed" consumable, being rewarded 50 % of the time,
    • Some expeditions will reward a "GS" consumable, being rewarded with "Great Success" only,
    • Since no expedition rewards more than very few consumables, there is no "long timer" expedition adequate for farming, unless the consumable is a side reward of other resources.
  • For most expeditions, having a "Great Success" is advisable, especially for "short timer" ones.
    • This mostly requires sparkling ships, which is time-consuming, but still worth it when trying to reach greater hourly gains,
    • See Success Conditions for more details.

Quest Tips

Quests are mostly used to farm consumables (Instant repairInstant construction MaterialDevelopment materialImprovement material).

  • While it is ideal to use the lightest fleets possible to maximize primary resource gains, it is more important to use fleets that reliably clear the quests.

1-3

Node D is a "normal resource node" rewarding 10~20 Fuel

  • The maximum possible Landing Craft Landing Craft and Amphibious Vehicle Amphibious Vehicles should be equipped to maximize fuel gain.
    • Drum Canister DrumsDrum Canister (Transport Use) work as an inferior substitute.
    • Only using those equipment in the fleet is a viable solution.
  • When lacking enough Amphibious Vehicles for SS(V), Drum-capable SS are recommended as a substitute.
  • When using an AO, the reach rate is 100 %, but is only 80 % when using an AV instead.
  • Once the first battle is complete, "retreat" and "resupply" before going back out.

If done correctly, this can result in an outstanding fuel gain that can surpass expedition gains.

  • Using "cheap" ships to refuel in the fleet (such as Kamikaze-class and Mutsuki-class) will optimize the fuel consumption/farming.
  • It is alternatively possible to use throwaway DDs with Drums that are never refuelled until they are critically damaged, and then scrapped to save on resources (do not forget to remove their Drums before scrapping).
Recommended Fleets
  • Kamoi/Souya, 4-5DD, 0-1SS(V)
  • 1AV/AO, 4-5DD, 0-1SS(V) (if lacking those AO)
  • Route = A D B E

1-3 Souya Immortal Farming[1]

Thanks to her incredible Luck (77+) and Armor (62) stats, Souya (AGB) (not AGS nor AGL) can exploit damage mechanics to farm on fuel on 1-3.

  • Souya needs to:

When setup like that, Souya can be sortie alone on 1-3,

  • She will follow the route A D B E
  • One the battle of Node E, thanks to how damages are calculated in Kancolle, she will be virtually immune to damages and so will survive the battle almost every time,
  • Once the battle is completed, the sortie can be ended to gather the fuel and restart a run,
  • It is possible to farm about 900+ fuel/h "risk free" using this method.
Note
  • The method only works on 1-3 Node E, other battles being able to damage Souya.

7-4

7-4 is a great "risk free" place to farm both fuel and bauxite.

  • See the 7-4 map page for more details.

4-3

Node B is a "normal resource node" rewarding 30~90 Fuel.

It is possible to use this map to farm both fuel and bauxite. This requires the use of either an AV or AO and will go through 2 combat nodes.

Recommended Fleets
  • 1AV/AO, 1CL, 2DD, 2CLT (Fast)
  • Route = A B G J
    • Node A should not present much difficulty, however, node G may present some challenge to pass.
    • AV, CLTs, and CLs carrying Midget SubmarineMinisub Midget Submarine can be useful for taking out many of the ships in node G during the Otorp attack, to minimize damage taken.
    • Slow AV/AO needs to be Fast (see Improving Ship Speed).
    • Due to the danger this path has, bringing Landing Craft to gain extra resources can be optional.

Node N is a "normal resource node" rewarding 20~60 Ammunition

When doing Development material DevMat farming, it is possible to further advance to node N with some fleets.

  • See below for more details.
Recommended Fleets
  • 1-2AO, 1AV/AS, 1-2CVL, 1-3CL(T), 0-2SS(V)
  • Route = B C G H I K N / B G H I K N (not 100% routing)
    • It is recommended to use CVL instead of CV(B) for 60 % of avoiding the maelstrom node.

3-2

Node B is a "normal resource node" rewarding 50~150 Ammunition

It is recommended to use a throwaway DD equipped with Landing Craft/Drum Canister, and one Repair PersonnelEmergency Repair Personnel
Emergency Repair Goddess
.

  • This saves on spending resources while completing the sortie. Alternatively, a set of good DD can be used, but they will need to be repaired, slowing down the farming rate.
  • If the battle on A critically damages the DD, select to use the Repair Personnel and continue onward.
  • The Repair Personnel is not consumed while doing this process.
  • Once complete, remove the Repair Personnel from the DD, that can now be scrapped, and repeat.

Another method is to send a fleet of 3-6SS(V) using Amphibious Vehicle. This method brings a bit greater return at a higher risk and has steeper requirements.

Doing this farming will bring a lot of "losses", which can impact the overall win rate and so the "event eligibility".

Scrapping unwanted drops is an excellent source of Steel.

  • Larger ships will provide more steel when scrapped.
  • Remember that any equipped gear will also be scrapped in the process, adding some resources, unless the "unequip" switch is toggled.

Bauxite Bauxite

2-2

Node A is a "normal resource node" rewarding 10~20 Bauxite

  • This map is ideal for farming Transport kills for Bw3 and Bw4, as node B contains 2 Transports and can be reached consistently
  • Node A gives bauxite, and even with multiple carriers in the fleet, it is possible to break even on bauxite consumption and even make a net gain.
  • In addition, many medium ships (mostly CAs) will be dropped, that can be scrapped for a reasonable amount of steel Steel.
Recommended Fleets
  • 3-6CV(L)/BBV, 0-3XX
  • 3CVL, 3CAV/CL
  • Route = C B A
    • Using 3CL/CAV carrying a Midget SubmarineMinisub Midget Submarine and Landing Craft Landing Craft alongside the carriers will create a strong opening, coupled with a higher resource gain.

CA(V)/CL/DD Wildcard Wildcard RADAR The Wildcard should be whatever brings the most combat/AA power to the ship, being High-Angle Gun for an AACI setup, or Seaplane Fighter for air power.
Landing Craft/Amphibious Vehicle Wildcard The Wildcard can preferably be a Midget SubmarineMinisub if equipped on capable CAV/CL, or a Surface Radar otherwise.

At least 144 fighter power is needed for AS+ on node F. When enough fighters are used to reach this value, the other planes can be bombers to maximize damage.
  • It is recommended to use carriers with at least "medium range", so that their attack takes priority over the other ships. See Range for more details.
  • The Radar can be used to block the largest slot and limit bauxite losses.
SS(V) TorpedoesTorpedoes
Amphibious VehicleAmphibious Vehicle
When using a SS, it should either use torpedoes to maximize damage, or Amphibious Vehicle to bring additional buckets.

Node E is a "normal resource node" rewarding 1 Instant construction Material.

  • This map does not pose any challenge, also being a good enough spot to farm steel Steel from drops.
  • This map should be cleared alongside quest Bd7.
Recommended Fleet
  • 1AV, 1CL, 4DD (Fast)
  • Route = C E H
    • The AV guarantees routing to node E,
    • A slow fleet will hit one extra combat node.

DD High-Angle GunHigh-Angle GunAir RADARAir Standard setup for DD, with some AA emphasis, with at least one AACI being recommended.
  • Putting more CL and CA in the fleet would still work, but at a greater cost.
CL Medium Caliber Main GunMedium Caliber Main GunSeaplane Setup for CLs that are capable of Artillery Spotting. For those that are not, simply replace the seaplane with a radar.
AV Seaplane FighterSeaplane FighterSeaplane Fighter The main role of the AV is to bring air power, with 81 being needed to reach AS on the boss.
  • Midget SubmarineMinisub and Seaplane BomberBomber can be used if enough air power is reached with minimal SPF use.

Node G is a "normal resource node" rewarding 1 Development material.

Farming this map can prove a bit frustrating because of the random routing at node C.

  • It is recommended to farm for Instant repair Buckets too, as they are rewarded on the off-route path (see above).
  • It is additionally recommended to bring 1 Surface RADARSurface Surface Radar on each girl to diminish the resource losses on the storm maelstrom.
  • After reaching node G, it is possible to refresh the game to save time and resources.
Recommended Fleets
  • 3CV, 2-3CA(V)/CL/SS(V), 0-1DD
  • 3CV(L), 1AO, 2SS(V)
  • Route = B C G H I
    • 50 % chance to route to A, 50 % to G
    • When farming for buckets too, no CVL allowed and 1DD max, otherwise, the routing to A becomes even worse.
  • 1-2AO, 0-1AV/AS, 1-2CVL, 1-3CL(T), 0-2SS(V)
  • Route = B C G H I / B G H I
    • It is recommended to use CVL instead of CV(B) for 60 % of avoiding the maelstrom node.
    • The AV/AS are only needed to reach node N for Ammunition farming (not 100% routing).

AO/AS Wildcard Wildcard RADAR Because of their nature, AO/AS do not have a standard setup. The general rule is to make them as less of a dead weight as possible, usually giving them guns, planes, or armor.

6-3

Nodes G H are "Air Reconnaissance", a unique kind of node, rewarding Ammunition, Bauxite, and Development material.

While this map has the potential to return significantly more DevMats than 2-4, it is also costlier and more difficult. The enemies encountered are strong and any node has the potential to force a retreat. Furthermore, to claim the resources, the boss has to be at least B ranked. This can be a tall order when fighting BB, CA, and DD Hime with a light fleet.

Recommended Fleets
  • 1CL, 4DD, 1AV
  • Route = A C E G H J
Equipment Setups
Ship Type Equipment Notes
DD Small Caliber Main GunSmall Caliber Main GunWildcard Because this map has no air power, the guns can be whatever is best on each DD. The wildcard can be anything that does not interfere with the double attack setup, usually a Radar.
  • This setup can alternatively be swapped with other Night Cut-In setup if available.
SONARWildcard Wildcard It is advisable to have 1-2 DD on OASW duty, preventing some retreats.
CL TorpedoesTorpedoesMidget SubmarineMinisub/Seaplane/SONAR The CL can play most roles, being a crucial component to defeat the boss. It should therefore be focused for combat/night battle, carrying additional gears if possible (especially true for 4 slots CL).
AV Seaplane BomberBomber/Large Flying Boat/Midget SubmarineMinisub Akitsushima and Nisshin are the only Large Flying Boat LFB capable AV, and so should preferably carry as many planes as possible to maximize gains.
  • Other AV are still viable, with the ability to carry either more Seaplane BomberBomber or one Midget SubmarineMinisub.
  • Reconnaissance SeaplaneRecon can be used but are a waste of potential.
