At the moment I do, since I have an 18 point captain with IFHE that wants to get to 19.

But I consider using a CA captain without IFHE in the future, since it does not feel™ like I am doing much damage with HE anyway.

 No. You should be using AP as much as possible.

 

Disclaimer: I don’t use IFHE on any light cruiser anymore!

No, not the worth the massive hit to fire starting potential and as mentioned above, the AP on this thing wrecks.

It seems to run just fine both with and without IFHE, which is nice if you want it as a trainer. Right now I use my 19 pt Donskoi captain to farm CXP while the boost mission is active.

 

If you're building a dedicated captain for the PB, I'd say those 4 points are a waste which could better be used in other places.

I use Kuznetsov who has IFHE - but I try and fire AP as much as possible.

 

IFHE is there because I didn't get around to removing is when the free respec was going - a mixture of server problems at the time and a mini-break from the game (may be a longer one soon).

Currently using Kuznetsov, who has my Kremlin captain, so obviously yes.

 

Just kidding. Nope. Not needed. AP is extremely good and should be your ammo of choice.

IMO IFHE (now) is pointless on cruisers that have long reaload unless they either have comparatively very high HE alpha (so you want that damage) AND low fire chance so you dont lose out much, and there are not many such ships (if any really) as high HE alpha and fiee chance usually go hand in hand, you will benefit more from repetitive fire starting on several targets then you will from alpha strikes on one of them...

 

Exception might be some competitive setting where you want to be able to do damage at all costs and few odd ships here and there such as 155 Mogami for instance

 No. No real benefits and it ruins your fire chance.

I used both type of captains. Both work but one cost 4 more skill points for not really much more benefit. It’s a bit of gamble though. Sometimes you face ships where you really regret taking IFHE.  The next game it would have been a bonus.

 

But I always wonder: if I don’t do IFHE, what else is relevant for such a cruiser? Normally my standard IFHE cruiser with heal takes 17 points.  CE, IFHE, DE, the skill that gives you extra consumable, AR, skill that gives you idea you are targeted. 
 

I mean you save 4 points, but how to spend them smart?

No.

 

I've split my soviet captains into 130/152 (with IFHE) and 180/203 (with RPF).

 

I might even swap IFHE for RPF on the soviet 130/152s as well, because they are very much DD killers and benefit from being able to track unspotted DDs.

 

The new CA AP is so strong that HE is less important anyway.

It's a ship from a line based on hugely overpowered AP,  the T5 can outpen a T10 9.2" CA at longer ranges, so HE really isn't a focus.

Currently I'm using the Bagrat's XP mission to level my Donsky captain, so he has IFHE.

But to be honest I haven't seen a big benefit from it.

Are her guns significantly different from Donskoi's?

 

I went with IFHE on the Donskoi on LWM's recommendation, and at least for me she became a lot more comfortable to play with IFHE. Yes, I don't get as many fires, but the increase in direct HE damage seems to more than make up for it.

Only because it has my Chapayev captain. When I get the Donskoi I'll drop it.
