Meh, not really, IMO, alex.  Remember that DE is a flat 2% bonus.  And the higher the base fire chance on your ship, the smaller the proportional benefit you get from DE.  That is, if your base fire chance was 4% and you had DE (+2%), that would be a 50% proportional increase, since 6% is 50% more than 4%.  But if you have a 20% base fire chance, DE only gives you a 10% proportional increase.  Thus, the higher the base fire chance, the smaller the proportional benefit.

This isn't to say that one might feel that DE was still a better choice than other skills for their particular captain and ship.  It's just good to understand that DE gives the most bang for the buck for ships with relatively low base fire chances.

I would say no, extra 2% when your already at 20% doesn't really seem worth it. Also not sure why CV's matter unless your looking at getting manual AA. AFT/BFT gets your secondaries when full spec'd to around 8 km range vs ships, handy when those DD's pop up and increase the secondary rate of fire. As well as give you a range boost to over 5 km to long range AA and 20% to AA DPS. Manual secondaries can be good depending on viewpoint, better on the tier 8+ ships, Super is always good for the extra heal, never know when you'll need it, especially given these things are built more to brawl and use secondaries. Though, if you find yourself uptiered or constantly against flamethrowers, after getting BFT and AFT getting the skills to limit fires, put them out faster, etc can be very useful.

Scharny is one of those quirky ships that can rely on her AP more more situations than your average BB. You'd be better off buffing her other attributes than HE shells.

I think those points would be better spend on Basics of Survivability, since that one will help you passively in every battle you play.

Hey

Wouldn't waste the skill on DE; better off taking SI if you don't already, or vigilance or even basics of survivability for 3 point skills.  For 3 point skills, I personally run S.I., BFT, and Basics of Survivability on my Scharnhorst, same on my Gneisenau.
