So, I recently got the Akizuki. Not sure how I feel about it yet. I have a 13 point Captain and am working on getting IFHE. Im hoping that it will transform this DD into something better. My question is, will it? Otherwise, the guns combined with the horrid turning is starting to put me off a bit. Thoughts?

It isn't really the Akizuki until you have IFHE... until then you shatter on EVERYTHING... different ship with IFHE, ppl even say to get IFHE before CE....

No ship in the game NEEDS IFHE to really function properly as much Akizuki as far as I hear.

It does get better with IFHE, imo. But I still find the ship difficult to consistently do well with. Terrible turning rate and lack of speed make any mistake with positioning potentially fatal.

I believe jingles just did a video about this.

He did. He seems to have predicted very well that the new IJN DDs will bring many new Akizuki players in with the exact problems of the OP...

Cool, I will look it up then. I had followed the normal steps when building a DD Skipper, already have CE. So, I dont want to spend gold to re-spec. But man, grinding those last 4 points isnt pleasant in this bote

If you have a IJN Premium, use it to training you Akiziki cpt up to 14 pts. Or If you have a 19 pts cpt, use to get elite XP and up you cpt. Best way. 

 

Akizuki isnt Akizuki until you have that 14 pts, than its a great ship.

You need IFHE period. It goes from mediocre to beast mode. Also try diving with a Lot Yang or Z23 and own caps.

Yes get IFHE

The Akizuki works like this,

You look at a BB and its on fire, look at another, its on fire,

I had a Schors go broadside at 6 km, ap was loaded 1 salvo 8 shells, 8 citadels, no more Schors

Do not discount the Akizuki till you have a captain worthy of it

IFHE makes all the difference!!!  Shot placement can be hard, but if you have Harekaze run her with the B Hull (Same guns as Aki).  You'll get plenty of practice using these wonderful rifles and you'll be landing a higher percentage of your shots in no time.  I've had a B Hull Harekaze for some time and Aki was no difference at all..EXCEPT 33% MORE RIFLES!  Have fun.  She is a blast, especially with Yamamoto as your Cpt.  The trace is a beautiful harbinger of doom as you obliterate DD's in Cap!

Not seen a ship so dependent on a single skill as the Aki is on IFHE. It murders in a knife fight (kiting away), but be careful she is slow as [edited], long and turns like [edited] (for a DD). In ranked I play her as a support DD and works very well. Overall excellent ship, smoke, torp reload, great guns, etc...
