Hi all,

 

Do you use "Vigilance" Captain skill on your ships?

 

I used to use it much more months (actually 1+ year ago) ago but now I find myself very rarely using it on my ships... the general map / threat awareness simply made it "obsolete"...

Yes, don't know on how many though of the top off my head.

 

 

I think I have it equipped on my Zao (as I run a 3x3 build: SI, DE, Vig, + on lvl 4 CE).

 

 

Greetings

No ships. It's a skill I can consider for various ships but always find another that I'd prioritize above.

same here mostly. I couldn't swear that I dont use it on any ships, but I cant think of one off the top of my head...

I use it in randoms in some ships but mostly in Clan Wars, in all of those I use (Hindenburg, Moskva, Z52, Gearing).

Pretty cool skill but as a 3 pointer pretty "expensive" too.

I had full AA build on Hindenburg but cv are rare so i switched to DD hunter build and use vigilance now on Hindenburg works great.

Not only usefull for me but i Play Hindenburg only in Division and can spot the torps for the BBs.

It used to a mandatory part of my competitive DD builds, but it has been replaced by rpf and fire prevention.

 

The only ship I used it on is the Amagi, because we never got along and I got killed by torps way more than other bbs (playstyle thing I guess).

Either you have a good sense and know the wasd hack or that game where you got heavily outplayed and you will eat torps regardless. This even more with dw torps since a 25% spoting range boost is still not much against torps with such low spotting range.

 

I have some mid tier bb,s equipped since they are nimble enough to do some dodging and some normaly better perks are less usefull at that point.

I use it mostly on mid tier BBs and Cruisers specced for AA.

Brit cruisers, and even then I still can catch torps. Must be tied to their clumsiness when reversing:cap_hmm:

I don't see a reason to pick it tbh. If your WASD hax is on point you don't really need it imo.

As final skill I quite often take Vigil.

 

Not early on however, usually more useful skills to take...

the worth of the skill depends on the environment.

 

e.g. if the meta is torp heavy or you play highly competetive modes  like CW

Yes, but then I'm getting old and my reactions aren't what they used to be.
