I summon thee!

 

I need advice on how to build the tier VIII - X CVs. 

In both, modules and captain skills. 

 

While i’m not too keen on playing CVs at all, I still want to have them set up properly. 

 

@El2aZeR and others, feel free to share your builds.

which line? or all lines? Do you have Halsey?

 

All lines including premiums from TVIII upwards.

 

I do have Halsey, but he sits in a different class and he’ll stay there.

 

I do however have a 19pointer for each line available. 

 

 

I’d like to add, that i’m not joining the bird people...^^, I do want however to grind the RN CVs in coop (at TVI atm), reason is, I want all the ships, even the CVs.

 

Also, I want to complete the olden campaigns with honors, which sadly requires CVs.

He could also have Ovechkin, on the US line. His "special perks" make a difference.

Although I think the setup from @Bear_Necessities and @El2aZeR will be much better than mine. 

I actually have two, the Halloween one, and the one you could unlock via collection.

Lexington i went with the boost upgrades, plane armour and the aim time thing. I basically maxed planes as much as i could then i used whatever i had left to help the hull a bit (concealment to retreat easier and/or get to frontlines easier)

@Jethro_Grey These are the USN & IJN Builds I use for my Captains and T8 and above CV's. I feel comfortable in these, does not mean they are correct but I hope my record speak for themselves in this case. Don't really have a reliable RN CV build yet as it's still a WIP as I regrind in NTC

Ovechkin has Mega Survivability Expert, also works very well on planes. :Smile_trollface:

Thought one of them also had extra DE but i might be wrong there. I have only the collection one (14pt so far).

 

Special IJN or RN captain might also be a thing.

Uhhh... I suppose you also have the Graf Zepp? Jawohl There is also eine German Spezialkapitän.

But I have only the RN and US, so far T4 upto T8 (I kept them all...). My builds for both RN and US look much like the USN form Bear_Necessities.

ANYTHING to make planes survive longer.

Adrenaline rush was from when it actually worked.

 

I don't have the luxury of changing out skills or remapping everything.

No sight stabilization ?
Dunno if NTRprise is different but i really like a more snappy aim to shower DDs with missiles.

Then again i haven't tried to not run it yet, so i can't really say it wouldn't work either way ?

I'm gonna guess that's a fairly old build since @Bear_Necessities should know neither AR nor Last Gasp are particularly useful skills nowadays.

 

SS is actually hilarious on Enterprise since her planes have low tier aiming parameters. Her planes are generally more "resistant" to becoming inaccurate while changing course when preparing an attack to the point where her DBs just outright don't care, making them capable of exploiting particularly hilarious attack angles.

I’m an odd person. Plus I vary my builds at lot currently.

I‘d like to thank everyone in this thread! Much appreciated guys!

 

I‘m practicing in operations atm in my RN tier VI, tho i‘m wondering if the US or IJN would be more useful in Aegis?

I like Ryujo the most because of AP bombs. Ranger 2nd, Furious last.

Alltho, i can get similiar results with Ryujo and Ranger, but Furious definetely lacking in damage output.

Useful info

 

Use Ovechkin whenever possible. Imo better than Halsey.

Any chance you will explain what is "turning attack" you mentioned in another thread?

The way I understand it, its feature of Balansprise pretty much ignoring any A/D input in terms of dispersion. Which in case of DB, I guess enables her to do 90 degree turns during bombing run and still drop bombs on target

Thx to your feedback, I managed to complete the french mission thingy - all 4 of them - for CVs and get that O.I.N.T. whatever camo, yay! 

And doing it in OPS prevented me ruining other players - on both teams - games. 

 

Since i‘m collecting ships, and I have the US and IJN CVs,  i‘ll be doing the RN CV grind in OPs.

Do you really need Concealment Expert in CV?

 

Its handy. Both to keep hull closer to the frontline, shortening rotation and lowering plane concealment. Though main benefactor of full camo build are IJN TB, capable of stalking Minotaurs and Woosters unspotted as well able to do sudden torpedo runs.

I didn't think concealment can help these strikes. I think attacking AA ships are on plane managements, the use of terrain, and the slingshot.

Might try later and see what happens.

Usually I start out with torps. At the beginning ships haven't grouped up yet. 

I make sure they never do... they're still scared of two meagre torps. You have to herd them like sheep a bit. 

 

With Furious the trick is to send rocket planes first against BBs.

You'll lose a lot, but you'll set fires and/or damage modules... mainly AA.

Then send in the DB... loiter around a bit after he fires up his AA... strike... get fire.

Wait if he uses DCP. Then strike again.
