As there are 12 in a directive, are there any that are easier to get so I can aim for them instead of playing constantly for a week hoping to get enough?

Operations. As long as it is not Newport-week and you survive, you will receive at least one.

Why not just see how you get on in Ranked Sprint first, and then worry if you're still short at the end?

 

Plenty of First Bloods, Dev Strikes, Die Hards, CQE's, to be farmed.

 

If that happens to me I'll be farming Killer Whale, for at least one Sea Star per battle, but usually also Assistants and Major Contributors using Ryujo.

well, wrong.

you probably need 5 stars to get the seastar.

 

thanks to potato teams  - yes, even in ops :facepalm: - I have now played 4 ops and got 1 seastar. great.

 

EDIT:

complete all objectives (i.e. 5 stars)

survive

AND

deal more than 100% of your ship's HP damage

 

sadly, can't complete all objectives alone.

 

it's probably easier to farm "dreadnaught" and "first blood" in randoms

You are right. Gonna wait for Aegis, 5 stars there is not that hard.

Edit: Nevermind, mission will be gone when Aegis returns. :Smile_sad:

Go to ranked with a secondary specced ship, hunt for DDs.

Only JB, Neptune and Alaska @ TIX. And I just do not have luck for achievements and kills...

For example this Neptune, worth first blood and devstrike was killed by Kron just after my salvo that dealt 39270 dmg...

Battleships are the easiest for me.

  • Dreadnought
  • Fireproof
  • First Blood
  • Secondary Kills

 

This in ranked mode 3vs3 ( when you do not camp like a fool but flank and kill )

 

And in Operations : ( use the Operations channel and join a full group to make sure you win and complete all objectives )

 

- Sea Star

- Tactical Expertise

- Universal Seaman

Learn about  the achievements, what you need to do to earn them, choose the ones you can do more easily and go for it?

I find DDs easiest to get achievements, use any high DPM gunboat DD => Rush enemy DD for first blood => Suicide torpedo a battleship for devastating strike.

I think Ops might be the easiest way right now. It's currently Killer Whale which is a nice offering and so long as your team aren't brain damaged morons that either lose or don't go into the green circle(at least half the remaining team) then it's a nice and very achievable 4-5 star results.(should be 5)). So, given that you should get the sea star achievement I'll outline some other pretty doable achievements if you play specifically for them. 


CV - Major Contribution. I think that's what its called, most definitely the easiest on KW and I think 180k+ dmg should see you get that which is easy on this very CV friendly mission

 

BB's and cruisers - Natural Selection. Destroy 4 of the same class and it's in the bag. On KW there's a nice selection of both so, it's only a matter of focusing on killing that same class and play whichever you prefer and find easier.

 

DD's. Torpedoman. Land 15 torpedo strikes. Now this is normally not all that easy because torps are so powerful but the Vasteras doesn't have powerful torps and it reloads fast so its actually pretty easy with the European if you just focus on that particular task.

 

Anything else you might bag is obviously a nice bonus but 2 per battle is definitely achievable.

I did that requirement in Ops, this weeks Op is thankfully Killer Whale one that's pretty hard for a team to fail at and every battle is an easy 2 or 3 achievements so took no time at all.

I did mine with the conqueror! Too easy with that.. 

I got high calibre, confederate, witherer, arsonist, dreadnought and fireproof.

Like this. Take Nelson for dreadnought & fireproof, devstrike cruisers with AP or farm witherer with HE on BBs.

Dev strikes and Just a flesh wound are pretty easy to farm in torp DDs, First blood is prob next easiest if you go for it, the attrition ones such as High Caliber, Confederate etc are harder to do but not that hard to farm as to be out of scope within a week of normal Random playing, the resilience stuff such as Fireproof and Dreadnought can be done in BBs if you are carefoul to escape at the right time and let the fire burn in a safe way although they come by themselves anyway if you play a tanking role in a BB
