 +
** Route: A-C-G-K-N-S-X

 +
 +
* Notes: Libcoris is vulnerable to T3 shells and LBAS, it is recommended to take T3 shells. She is also accompanied by two Supply Depot Hime, so taking a Nuke-setup in the main fleet is recommended. There are also PT Imps present at that node. Air superiority is optional, as are supports.

* '''Sortie 2:''' S rank Node M and V
 +
** Fleet: 1 FBB 2 CV 1 CAV 1CA 1 AACI DD + 1 FBB 2 CA 1 CL 2 DD
 +
*** Have 1-2 OASW Ship to deal with the Sub Loli Hime on the way to Node V
 +
** Have 1 LBAS with Toukai and ASW Bombers and send them to Node M to S rank that Node as that Node is the New Submarine Hime (Sub Loli)

** Send the last 2 of your LBAS with fighters and Bombers to Node V
 +
** It's Recommended that you bring Node Support Expedition to be able to clear out the Node before V and Node V for easier time to S rank
 +
* '''Sortie 3:''' Use a Slow STF with 3 BB 1 CAV 1 CV 1 CL to AS Node F and S rank Node J & Q all at once & LBAS Defense Once
 +
** You can use anything in Escort fleet but the most important part is the Main Fleet
 +
** This requirement doesn't rely on LBAS so you can set them up for Defense purposes while clearing out these requirements
 +
* '''Sortie 4:'''AS Node L and LBAS Defense with Fast CTF
 +
** The Fleet must contain 6 CL/DD, 2 or less CA
 +
*** Example: 2 FBB 2 CV 1 CL 1 CAV + 1 Cl 5 DD
 +
** This requirement doesn't rely on LBAS so you can set them up for Defense purposes while clearing out these requirements
 +
 +
'''Phase 6: Deliver the final blow against Abyssal South Dakota'''
 +
 +
* Fleet: Same as Phase 4
 +
 +
* Route: A-C-K-N-S-Y, Node Types see above
 +
 +
* LBAS: 6 Waves of 4LBAA or 3LBAA + LBAS Recon to Y.
 +
 +
* Notes: Abyssal South Dakota is accompanied by a lot of Sponge and new Na-Class Destroyers capable of Opening Torpedo attacks in the escort fleet. 2-4 historical TCI are recommended to be present in the Escort fleet, as are means to ensure their proc rate (Searchlight, Flares, Skilled lookouts in RE). If you are taking a searchlight with you, you might want to consider putting that ship into the 4th slot of the escort fleet to tank on Node S and equip them with a damagecon (LD only). The main Fleet will benefit from having a special attack like Nelson Touch or Colorado Broadside incorporating the Bonus ships Hiei and Kirishima into it for extra damage. T3 shells deal Bonus damage to the boss, but equipping Hiei and Kirishima with APCI will still be more beneficial. Only one SPF in the main fleet is needed to ensure AS+ on all nodes. Boss Support is recommended, Node support (Either ASW or Shelling Support) is optional.
 +
 +
* Editors note: Preserving Chevrons: If you are at LD and see that a failure is imminent and you dont want to lose your LBAS chevrons to the very high enemy AA on this node you can forfeit your drop on this node by refreshing the game page before the battle result screen is loaded. This will still have you pay the Bauxite and repair costs, but you save time as max proficiency LBAA has higher hit and crit rate which are needed on this boss.

Sandbox Rules

This sandbox is to be used to construct an event guide for the above mentioned event map. These guides are to all of the following requirements:

  • List of branching unlocking requirements (If there are multiple requirements, compositions for each path along with the below requirements will be needed to discuss the unlocking requirements in question)
  • A list of working compositions that work: (These must have possible alternatives for players who may or may not have all ships needed for a specific path)
  • The Path said composition will take (To explain what path the composition will take)
  • A summary or description of what kind of obstacles a composition will face.
  • A description of the boss node, what it consist and a descriptive guide on what the player should consider for a course of action to successfully win the battle.
  • (Optional) Tips to farm to take path to collect certain ships (This will also require a composition, path, and possible description.

Editors are to construct thier own version of thier guide and complete them in a timely fashion.

No other editors are to allowed to edit over other editor's work without the full consent of the editor and his approval to do so.

Several version will be constructed through this page and will be reviewed and approved by the staff/ collaboration committee before being moved for the Summer 2020 Event which it'll be reviewed and updated once more before it can be released.

Overall there will be 3 version of the guide that will be constructed which will include:

  • Preliminary Guide
  • Polished Guide
  • Finalized Guide

With each approval of each version the guide, the said guide will be updated to the main page and construction of the next version will begin.

All guides outside of the approved version will be removed and work will begin from the approved version to make it better for the next version until the finalized version is made.

Projected Deadline for E-6 Guide Release: 7/24/2020 Midnight (Extended deadline upon requst from Dark)

Grunilgs Notes

Phase 1: Defeating Licoris

  • Fleet: Fast STF with 2FBB 3CA(V)/CL + CA CL 4DD or 2FBB 3CA(V) AV + CA CL 4DD
  • Route: A-C-G-K-N-S-X, with C being a submarine node, G an airstrike node, N a light surface engagement, S a night battle node and X the combined fleet installation boss
  • LBAS: 6 Waves of AD/AP to Node X
  • Notes: Use Vanguard formation on the night battle node, it should mitigate most damage. Libcoris is vulnerable to T3 shells and LBAS, it is recommended to take T3 shells. She is also accompanied by two Supply Depot Hime, so taking a Nuke-setup in the main fleet is recommended. There are also PT Imps present at that node. Air superiority is optional, as are supports.


Phase Whatever: Defeat Abyssal SoDak

(this is assuming the second boss has been unlocked and debuffed and the shortcut is present. This fleet should also apply to the chipping phase)

  • Fleet: Fast STF with 3(F)BB(V) 3CA(V)/AV/CL + CA CL 4DD
  • Route: A-C-K-N-S-Y, Node Types see above
  • LBAS: 6 Waves of 4LBAA or 3LBAA + LBAS Recon to Y.
  • Notes: Abyssal South Dakota is accompanied by a lot of Sponge and new Na-Class Destroyers capable of Opening Torpedo attacks in the escort fleet. 2-4 historical TCI are recommended to be present in the Escort fleet, as are means to ensure their proc rate (Searchlight, Flares, Skilled lookouts in RE). If you are taking a searchlight with you, you might want to consider putting that ship into the 4th slot of the escort fleet to tank on Node S and equip them with a damagecon (LD only). The main Fleet will benefit from having a special attack like Nelson Touch or Colorado Broadside incorporating the Bonus ships Hiei and Kirishima into it for extra damage. T3 shells deal Bonus damage to the boss, but equipping Hiei and Kirishima with APCI will still be more beneficial. Only one SPF in the main fleet is needed to ensure AS+ on all nodes. Boss Support is recommended, Node support (Either ASW or Shelling Support) is optional.
  • Editors note: Preserving Chevrons: If you are at LD and see that a failure is imminent and you dont want to lose your LBAS chevrons to the very high enemy AA on this node you can forfeit your drop on this node by refreshing the game page before the battle result screen is loaded. This will still have you pay the Bauxite and repair costs, but you save time as max proficiency LBAA has higher hit and crit rate which are needed on this boss.

Phase 6: Deliver the final blow against Abyssal South Dakota

  • Fleet: Same as Phase 4
  • Route: A-C-K-N-S-Y, Node Types see above
  • LBAS: 6 Waves of 4LBAA or 3LBAA + LBAS Recon to Y.
  • Notes: Abyssal South Dakota is accompanied by a lot of Sponge and new Na-Class Destroyers capable of Opening Torpedo attacks in the escort fleet. 2-4 historical TCI are recommended to be present in the Escort fleet, as are means to ensure their proc rate (Searchlight, Flares, Skilled lookouts in RE).

The main Fleet will benefit from having a special attack like Nelson Touch or Colorado Broadside incorporating the Bonus ships Hiei and Kirishima into it for extra damage.

Boss Support is recommended, Node support (Either ASW or Shelling Support) is optional.
  • Editors note: Preserving Chevrons: If you are at LD and see that a failure is imminent and you dont want to lose your LBAS chevrons to the very high enemy AA on this node you can forfeit your drop on this node by refreshing the game page before the battle result screen is loaded. This will still have you pay the Bauxite and repair costs, but you save time as max proficiency LBAA has higher hit and crit rate which are needed on this boss.
