Hello, short and simple question:

I am not a CV expert and start to use Lexington now. Do you guys have recommendations, which modules should be equipped and which captain skills are working well? Maybe something has changed after 0.8.7?

Yes, something's changed, now anything works. :Smile_trollface:

Use whatever rocket type you feel more comfy with. Do note that TiTs are undoubtedly superior on the Midway tho so getting a bit of practice in with Lex might not hurt.

Use whatever plane type you prefer in slot 4. Lex is fairly versatile in that regard.

Are concealment module and CE completely waste of upgrade/cap. skill?

Concealment Module yes.

CE depends on the CV. Sometimes you don't have better alternatives. On USN CVs it's a waste tho.

On japenese carriers full concealment build works, since your planes will have a 6.1km concealment. American cv however won't get these good values, so not really worth going this route to boost something that is in general bad.

In my admittedly limited experience not taking any concealment does make the Lex (and to a much lesser extend the Midway) have rather limited options when it comes to positioning or re-positioning (at least when it comes to any kind of aggressive positioning)

Would the wiser gentlemen among us consider it at least an alternative worth thinking about vs DE (and say TA) or are those problems that get ameliorated once one stops being a scrub like me ? ^^

Sorry for the necro btw, but I've found myself thinking about this quite a bit recently.

You can go Concealment expert on your captain, mainly to conceal the carrier a bit. But don't go full concealment build including the module, it's not worth it.

I actually picked up Lex recently. Personally I've had no particular issue with positioning. It's just that the higher your concealment goes, the more aware you have to be when you need to move.

I guess you could drop Sight Stab for CE on Lexington maybe since I found TBs to be the more effective and reliable damage source over DBs. Not that her DBs are bad tho ofc.

Thanks :) That sounds like it's mainly my lack of foresight biting me there.

2 short questions on the side: doesn't sight-stab influence rocket-planes and TBs as well and do you consider TA essential on USN TBs ?

The benefits of sight stab for rockets and TBs are fairly negligible.

Not really, if you can do without TA it's fine too. I still use it on all US CVs but Midway.

Thanks for your help, let's see if i have more success against more nimble targets with TA.

(The main problem is that I don't play enough CV to get a proper muscle-memory and feeling for attack vectors,but hey maybe with this I can pretend I'm competent ^^)
