Folks, is IFHE worth investing in on Blys? Her guns shooting HE do some pretty decent damage though fire starting even with DE aint anything to crow about. Would IFHE help any?

Well, it lets you pen 25mm of armor instead of 19.

The above comment has my recommendation.

Blys' 8% base firestarting rate is very good for a DD, let alone the 10% with DE attached.  IFHE wouldn't really hurt, given you're only losing 1% fire chance...but there are just so many other good captain skills to spend those 4 points on with this ship.

Think about it: are you really going to rely on the ~300 HE damage per shell to deal the most of the damage against cruisers and battleships? If I'm going to be shooting a target for that long, I'd rather have set multiple fires that the enemy can't control and then move on to a new target instead of continuing to pummel just one target.

Thanks folks! I'll pass on IFHE then. 'Sides, I'm doing pretty good without it.

I tried it out over the past week and I'm sticking with it. I found it gave me pretty consistent damage against BBs and CAs without a noticeable drop in the number of fires being set.

Again, it's not that I think IFHE would hurt the ship, it's just that there are so many other useful skills you can take with those 4 points & Blys still plays very well with standard HE.

I'm all about guns and doing alpha damage. It's a gun boat so buff the guns. Let the IJN have there CE. IFHE inverts your ratio of shatters to pens on BB's plus you still have a balls out fir chance if you take DE.

I think the points would be better spent in other skills like AR, BFT, or AFT. Her one bad weakness is her slow rate of fire. BFT would help out tremendously and AR will give you a nice bonus when you taking damage. Her guns shoot so flat that she can take advantage of the extra range from AFT also.
