Hello!

 

I have Bismarck kitted for secondaries for various missions, but I'm slowly getting bored of it- what line or ship should I buy to farm secondaries? the ship does not need to be good (it would be nice if it had pretty easy handling), just need to farm secondaries well. I have some ships that I keep only for mission purposes because they for example shoot torps well or have high rate of fire etc., now I need another one for secondaries - which is best?

The ship doesnt have to be good? 

Mikasa.

Presumably, the textbook answer is to buy MA, but she is a premium, of course...

what do you mean by MA? Massachusetts?

Yup - force of habit to refer to the States by their abbreviations (my last job involved shipping stuff around the USA)...

You can skill some french BBs into secondaries. However that mostly means having a second captain for a specific ship as you might not want to use the secondaries build for regular duty. French BBs like consumables and concealment.

 

The point of having a dedicated secondaries build for missions and directives and whatnot is to score as many secondary hits as possible. So Mikasa and any BB below T8 will not do the trick due to lack of range and bad dispersion. I don't understand why the ship would not require to be good. It certainly doesn't hurt to have a good ship, secondaries and quality are not mutually exclusive and, when it comes to premium ships, I personally would not settle for a bad ship for money.

The Bismarck in that respect is all you really need. The Massa is fun and due to the bigger caliber, doesn't take manure from 27mm-CAs.

 

Other contenders are Gascogne, Jean Bart, both not ideal for secndaries and ofc Georgia, if you have the coal.

Georgia if you want range and accuracy. (plus shes a fast ship too not the best tank, but she can kite very well when needed).

I got Massa for 3 days trial about a month ago and I must say it was a pleasant experience, dmg and secondaries were working fine ship has good handling - I could buy it. the thing is I already have Missouri and would like high tier premium for other nations then US. Georgia - not sure if I like her having only 6 gunz, but speed may lure me...

 

how bout T10? I heard that going secondaries on GK is bad idea, Republique is theoretically another option- is there anything else I'm missing- OHIO can be played on secondaries?

I really enjoy Alsace as a secondary build, it doesn’t really fit into today’s Meta but it’s still a good fun ship, up to 11.3km secondaries and still having a 12 MB complement. I play mind with the aiming module though so only 9.9(?) km range. Lots of fun though

Republique has good secondaries. Problem is that she can't stay in secondary range for very long without getting melted because of her relatively thin armor.
