  1. The title of the video is about whether Iowa and Hood were fast battleships or battlecruisers. But the meat of the video is breaking down the origin and use. Interesting listen as always though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkSY_ALpBQQ <- In case video embeds screw up.

    Honestly unless you are actively using the ships finish the retrofit for the sake of archives, counts towards that completion percentage. Otherwise, shrug.

    For a moment when reading the ship specific augments I read it as Laffey's is a pillow, as in her melee weapon is a pillow. I thought that is hilarious and fitting. But closer read seems to indicate that that pillow is just a nickname for Laffey in the notes or something. Well I can still hope.

    IIRC Helena Meta is pretty strong taking into account building for her skills.

    I also had to go all the way to 200 before obtaining Vanguard, fortunately I had saved up for the event and kept my gems for skins. Got enough Revenges to revenge everything.

    Ok Vanguard looks nice and all but why does she look like a French ship with that styling?

    Battleship Plating Change?

    Yes BBs used to have 25mm extremities, if I recall correctly it changed along with various cruiser armour during the big skill rework. The change made it so HE guns with 25mm pen wouldn't score pens unless IFHE was taken. It is important to note that 26mm still allows the same overmatch as when BBs had 25mm extremities. 15" will still punch straight through 26mm just like 25mm. It basically created a difference in HE guns commonly found on cruisers, IIRC tier 7 and below cruisers with 152mm mostly have 25mm HE pen (exceptions exist), and tier 8 and above have more than 25mm HE pen. It's been a while since I have actually looked at this so take this with a grain of salt, I may be off with my memory.

    Star Trek

    I realise that this is a tangent to Star Trek but it is related to the "quality" of recent media. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7kK6JRyrcU Caulking guns and first aid.........................................

    All ships may become 4% more accurate

    You could easily test the implications of this in a training room with 1 other person. Personally I think it's smaller than what you are making it out to be. While Deadeye was a thing it was overblown by emotion and confirmation bias.

    Some random landscape shots of Elden Ring, anyone who watched trailers will recognise these locations, my character is also not wearing anything incriminating. Spoiler tags for safety though.

    INT based spellcaster, using primarily Glintstone sorceries. Also if you have found Sorceress Sellen just a little south of the grace near her is a small camp of enemies, with 2 ruined buildings, jump to the top of the one on the left (from the perspective of approaching from the previously mentioned Grace point), there is a scroll there you can give her to expand her repertoire. The second area is where you can really get some nice options, it is possible to bypass Stormveil and get there without doing it yet if you are so inclined.

    I approve this message eleventy billion percent! I am also loving the game. It feels like the culmination of all their previous games rolled into one. I'm playing a spellcaster as my first character, all the previous titles (barring Sekiro, cause duh) I went melee (usually quality builds), it's been a nice shake up, though I have noted I engage less with the stagger and poise break mechanics as a spellcaster. It's great fun using Torrent for some fights and combating a boss entirely from horseback with spells and the odd melee (Moonveil Katana OP BTW).
