What do you prefer for farming whitherer flags? The Akizuki or the Conq? I just started playing the Akizuki but am farming whitherer flags at a pretty high rate. The low power of the guns seems that your always doing damage just not enough to kill stuff outright letting it burn longer than the 10-17K volley +3 fires in Conq. I'm running a gunboat build for obvious reasons in Akizuki. Maybe its just me getting lucky?

Most of my better work in Akizuki was before OWSF ended, chewing things up with AP.

Lately though, I have been using HE more; but RNG for fires seems to hate my guts, so I don’t worry about fires too much.

Last battle I only set 8 out of 612 hits I feel your RNG pain. It's hilarious catching BB's parked.

That's the thing with fire.  Some games you're setting 10+.  Some games, even with a fire starting ship, you're setting maybe 1-2 fires the whole game.

 

I've had games with Henri IV, setting some poor Bismarck player afire at range, to a point where he asked in match chat what was the fire % of my ship.

"26%"

"JESUS!"


I've had games where Henri IV, despite that 26% fire chance, set only 2 fires.

Akizuki is an IFHE platform... so while you will set a lot of fires, I don't know that it's really a "pure" firebug in quite the same was as some other ships (Belfast or Atlanta or whatever - not that they don't use IFHE, too, but still).

To farm Witherer, I would recommend Conqueror. Akizuki is a decent fire starter when RNG is with you but you shouldn't only rely on HE in this ship. Mega Zao can just start fire every salvo as long as your aim isn't bad

Best I've ever done is 24 fires in a single match, with a conq, but I prefer to play the akazuki.

I don't have Conquerer, so my fire-breathing ships are Cleveland, Kutuzov, Zao and 155mm Mogami.
