Overview

This article aims to provide you with a list of the most efficient places to quickly level your ship girls. It will only cover sorties. Generally Exercises are the most efficient way to level but are severely limited.

Experience (XP) increases the level of ships, which leads to increases in Evasion, LoS, and ASW stats, as well as passive increases in accuracy. Leveling ships can also unlock remodels at higher levels.

Leveling Locations

This map is a good starting point for leveling DD, DE and CL. OASW is required to get the most out of this map. At higher HQ levels, the boss node contains a flagship submarine that can be difficult to sink in just 1 round of shelling. Furthermore, the submarines present will have opening torpedoes in the later nodes. Not having OASW means higher bucket usage.
BBV and CVL also have some use in this map. BBVs allow a 2nd round of shelling that can help weaker ASW ships secure a S-rank. CVLs can carry a Saiun to prevent RedT engagements from hampering your fleet's combat ability.
This map can be used for Ranking.

Ship Type Equipment Notes
DD SONARSONARDepth Charges/SONAR This balances accuracy and damage for DDs. The SONARS add accuracy and the Type 94 Depth Charge or Type 3 Depth Charge provides them with ASW synergy damage. An extra SONAR can be added for Tashkent.
DE SONARDepth ChargesDepth Charges Similar to the DD setup with one SONAR swapped out for a Type 95 Depth Charge or Type 2 Depth Charge. These DCs have extra armour penetration when equipped on DEs. The extra ASW synergy damage also helps overcome their low base ASW.
CL SONARSONARDepth Charges/SONAR Similar to the DD setup, it aims to balance accuracy and damage.
BBV RotorcraftLiaison AircraftSeaplane A BBV isn't going to be contributing much to combat aside from enabling a 2nd shelling phase. Hyuuga Kai Ni is an exception since she has respectable ASW and is capable of OASW. Just equip the BBV with the best ASW equipment she can carry.
CVL Torpedo BomberRotorcraftLiaison AircraftReconnaissance Aircraft Aside from the Saiun, CVLs should just have whatever your best ASW planes are. Ideally you should take one of the CVLs that are capable of OASW.

This map is not all that fantastic for experience, but it is the earliest map that is efficient for leveling heavier ships like BB, CA, CV and CVL. Air power is nearly nonexistent which allows your fleet to have a powerful opening strike that reduces your bucket cost.

CV/L Torpedo BomberTorpedo BomberDive BomberFighter You may need to shuffle around some planes in order to hit the 162 fighter power required for AS+. One of your carriers should also have a Saiun if you can manage it.

This map requires a minimum of 3 CV/L, allowing you to leech up to 3 other girls. The objective of this leveling method is to only hit node B andthe bauxite node. It doesn't give a lot of experience but it provides safe leveling. The resource cost is very low and it is even possible to get a refund on the bauxite cost. While it is possible to run this map at low morale, you will want to have more carriers to increase the chances the airstrike sinks all the enemy ships. This will reduce the bucket cost.
This map can also be used for farming bauxite. See Resource Farming for more details.

The equipment of the other ships do not matter. Taking barrels and daihatsu along will increase your bauxite gain.
Ship Type Equipment Notes
CV/L Torpedo BomberTorpedo BomberTorpedo BomberDive Bomber Your carriers will want to maximise their airstrike power to increase the chances they sink a majority of the enemy fleet before shelling begins. At least one carrier should have the Type 2 Recon Aircraft in order to maximise airstrike damage. The dive bomber enables the carriers to perform CVCI to clean up any stragglers.

This map is primarily for CV/Ls. The strategy is to load up on your best torpedo bombers and attempt to wipe the nodes before they send your fleet back to port. Be warned that this map costs an exorbitant amount of bauxite. Attempting to reduce the bauxite cost will increase the bucket cost.

CV/L Torpedo BomberTorpedo BomberDive BomberFighter You will need to reach a total of 168 fighter power in order to minimise your bauxite losses. At least 1 carrier should have a Type 2 Recon Aircraft in order to maximise the power of the airstrike.
AV Torpedo-based WeaponTorpedo-based WeaponTorpedo-based Weapon Similar to the CL, the AV should aim to maximise torpedo power. In this case, all three should be midget submarines.

This map allows you to level any ship type as the flagship. You should retreat after node B. 3-4 enemies in the node will be forced to attack a submarine, allowing you to mitigate some damage taken. Note that those enemies have ASW equipment so the sub is unlikely to survive more than one battle. Because the airstrike will do most of the heavy lifting, it is possible to run this map with low morale ships. Beware that this will increase your bucket cost when the airstrike fails to take out enough enemy ships.

This map is great for leveling CLs and DDs but the requirements are tight if you want to reduce bucket costs. At least 3-4 girls in the fleet must be capable of OASW. The fewer girls that are capable, the higher the bucket cost will be. Having a CL capable of opening strikes will help by increasing the pass rate at G.

Ship Type Equipment Notes
DD SONARDepth ChargesSmall Main Gun The SONAR and the Type 94 Depth Charge or Type 3 Depth Charge provides decent ASW damage against any sub that you will encounter in the map. The gun adds much needed daytime shelling power to reduce retreats at G. An extra SONAR or gun can be added for Tashkent.
CL Medium Main GunSONARDepth Charges This setup is for CLs without an opening attack. The reasoning behind it is similar to the DD setup.
SeaplaneSeaplaneSONAR/Depth Charges This setup is for Agano-class, Tama Kai Ni or Gotland Kai. The seaplanes should be seaplane bombers. Good SPB like the Prototype Seiran are important to increase the pass rate. The Zuiun is not strong enough to reliably sink or disable enemies at G before closing torpedoes.
Torpedo-based WeaponSONARDepth Charges This setup is limited to Abukuma Kai Ni and Yura Kai Ni. They are the best choice for CLs in this map. The opening torpedo is nearly guaranteed to kill at least one enemy at G which drastically increases your pass rate.

This section is for 7-1 phase 1 that terminates at node G. It is a decent map for leveling DE and CVL. The exp is lower than 1-5, but you can level 1 more girl. Ideally you will want all your girls to be capable of OASW. This will allow them to eliminate the submarine threats and take no damage in return. Note that the boss node contains a mix of sub and surface ships.

CVL Torpedo BomberTorpedo BomberTorpedo BomberDive Bomber Because the boss contains surface ships, you will want to maximize your airstrike along with ASW. The surface ships at the boss are just DD and CL so taking your highest ASW torpedo bombers should be sufficient. One CVL should have a Saiun to prevent Red T.

This section is for 7-1 phase 1 that terminates at node M. It provides slightly more experience than 4-4 in exchange for harder fights. It is primarily for leveling BB, CV(L), and CA. It also has a very steep fighter power requirement, which limits the effectiveness of the airstrike. Overall, it costs a lot more resources to run compared to 4-4.

On 7-4, it is possible to use a submarine fleet to route to the Port Node O instead of the Boss, farming fuel and bauxite at the same time. It is also possible to send one LBAS to level up LBAS planes' proficiency at the same time.

Recommended Fleets:
  • 1-6SS(V)
  • Route = C D F J K M O
    • LoS required: ≥ 32 (Cn3)

This map is primarily for leveling BB, CV(L), CA, or CL. Unlike 7-1p2, it has no speed routing so a wider variety of girls can be used. It can get fairly costly depending on the setup used. It is not recommended to bring more than 1 leech for this map. The pre-boss nodes are fairly dangerous with the flagship Ri that will cause you to retreat. The boss herself has flagship Ta as escorts that will cost you buckets if you do not bring powerful enough girls.

Out of the 3 "1st node submarine" maps, 4-5 is the 2nd best in terms of experience. It also has the added advantage of not being limited by fleet composition. The objective is to retreat after node B or D. You will require some girls capable of OASW to reduce the bucket cost. Because your fleet only fights one node, morale can quickly become an issue.

This is the cheapest and fastest way to level any aviation ship (BBV, CAV, CV/L and AV). The objective is to retreat after node C. The 12cm 30 Tube Rocket Launcher Kai 2 is mandatory to get the most out of this map. This map is a waste of time and resources if you do not have the Rocket k2. How many girls you can field at once is determined by how many rockets you have. Because it is highly unlikely your girls will take damage, this map can be run non-stop with the flagship guaranteed MVP.

All Anti-Air Gun You only need the 12cm 30 Tube Rocket Launcher Kai 2 equipped on your girls to do this map. The aim is to abuse the Rocket Barrage ability to take no damage from the airstrike. Most girls should be able to reach near 100% trigger rate with just 2 rockets.

This map is the fastest way to level F/BB, CA/V, CL/T, DD and DE. Take note that BBV and CV/L cannot be brought. The objective of this map is to target node P. This map is very costly bucket-wise. The two night battle nodes are more than capable of heavily damaging any ship girl in your fleet if they get lucky.

General Tips

  • Maps heavily reward clearing them in full with the boss node being worth a significant portion of the map's exp. Unless otherwise noted, always clear the map.
  • For details on how exp works, see Experience and Rank.
    • The flagship receives a 50% exp bonus. Have the girl to level the fastest in that slot.
    • MVP gives double XP. Can be set as flagship for a total of 3x bonus.
    • S-ranks give 20% more exp. Losses have an exp penalty.
    • It is good to proceed into night battle for boss nodes to attempt to turn a loss into a victory or A/B rank into S-rank.
      • Do not bother fighting SS in NB.
  • Certain maps like 5-3 allow some control over who gets the MVP. Take full advantage of that to maximize efficiency by manipulating the flagship to get MVP.
  • Unless otherwise noted, girls' morale must be watched. Low morale will affect their combat ability and lower the pass rate.
  • Leveling speed can be increased slightly by sortieing with full ship and/or equipment slots. This saves precious time not waiting for the drop animation to play out.
  • Be sure to check the Event section when there is an event running for the latest leveling spot. Events generally allow to level using a combined fleet.
  • Do not be afraid to sortie girls at moderate damage (中破). Unless they are severely underleveled and not modernized, they should be able to last a few runs before heavy damage.
    • A general rule of thumb is to leave a buffer of 10% max HP from heavy damage (大破).
  • Submarine, PT Imp, Airstrike, and Night Battle nodes consume considerably less fuel and ammo than regular surface battle nodes
  • Modernization: Improves the primary four stats of ships. AA tends to be difficult to modernize but is generally the least important for farming XP. Firepower and armor can help the most. Stats gained during modernization are lost upon remodel, so typically modernization is used after the first remodel.

Using Fodder Ships

If maps require passing a dangerous node (like 5-3 I) first to get to the leveling spot, it is possible to exploit disposable escort ships that can be sunk during the sortie to save on buckets and time. Be aware that sinking Ships intentionally can generate quite a bit of hostility from other admirals. It is generally not recommended to utilize these strategies, but are included here for sake of completion of the guide. Be aware of the following:

  • Equipment from sunk ships is permanently lost, do not use anything but the most basic equipment on them
  • Losing Ships can affect Battle Ranks
  • Unmodernized Level 1 ships with disposable equipment will struggle to make any meaningful contribution to the battle, which will also affect Battle Ranks
  • Sinking Ships can also lead to failure to fulfill certain branching rules later on in the same map

Submarine Tanks

Also known as "Sub Tanks". This strategy is using SS(V) to draw fire from enemy DD, CL, CVL, and, BBV. This can help preserve the rest of the fleet as they will be taking less fire. SS(V) have low sortie costs and are quick to repair when under level 40 and unremodeled. Do note that any enemy with ASW gears will make short work of low level SS(V).

Range

It may be interesting to control which girl strikes first to better manage who gets the MVP.

Range Range determines which ships attack first. It is impossible to reduce the base range of a ship, but certain equipment can extend it.
