Gameplay Notes

1-3 Imortal fuel 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 times,
  • 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.

Notes :

  • The method only works on 1-3 Node E, other battles being able to damage Souya.

Special Mechanics

Can convert between AGS, AGL, and AGB forms.

Example of Underway Replenishment translated.

Fleet Oilers (AO) can carry Supplies Underway ReplenishmentUnderway Replenishments (including the RE) that will restore fuel and ammo mid-sortie when consumed.

  • When entering a boss node, a prompt will appear giving a choice to use the Underway Replenishment(s) or not.
  • The cost of the resupply will be deducted from the stockpile.
  • The resupply cannot be activated when having insufficient Fuel fuel or Ammunition ammo.
  • The amount of Fuel fuel and Ammunition ammo resupplied depends on
    • The fleet type (single or combined)
    • How many Resupplies are carried.

The resupply rates are as follow:

Item Icon Underway Replenishment.png Used Single Fleet Combined Fleet
1 25 % 15 %
2 36 % 27.5 %
3 47 % 40 %

This mechanic should only be used to avoid Fuel penalty or/and Ammo penalty.

I'm Souya. I was built as an ice-strengthened[3] cargo ship. As an IJN special operations ship, I participated in many operations like Operation MI[4]. I was also deployed to that fierce battle in the Solomons[5]. I took on missions like surveying, landings and transporting. After the war, I became everyone's flagship and became a lighthouse tender[6]... After an extensive remodel, I became an Antarctic research vessel and sailed those seas in the Showa era.

That's right. I did surveys-in-force and landings at Saipan, Truk, Rabaul, and that fierce battle at the Solomon Islands. My home port was Yokosuka, but... I ended up going all over the place. Now that I think about it... It's probably a miracle that I made it back in one piece.
