Selling Southern Dragon: What to do with captain?

I did the mission for the Southern Dragon last year and have played it a bit here & there. Mostly used it in co-op to get some extra daily XP for one of the other missions for a free ship (Katori, I believe).

Anyway, I'm not a big fan of this ship, so I've been contemplating selling it, which brings me to the captain. He's got 10 points and I'd love to be able to use him in a tech tree ship. Am I able to retrain him, or is he tied to the Southern Dragon? Since it's not really a Japanese ship, I assume I won't be able to but thought I'd ask before selling it.

You can send the captain to your capt reserve and use him in any IJN tech tree ship before you sell it.  You can also retrain the captain as well.

I think he is like the ARP captains and counts as an IJN captain. But I am not 100% sure.

Correct.  IJN captain.

Why would you sell something you can't buy or acquire in any way?  Just disable the view in the carousel.

Useless is still useless, so why would it matter whether it cannot be gotten again? :Smile_teethhappy:

Maybe the player needs the slot or the silver?

If you turn on one of the 'butt-hurt' filters in the lower right of the port screen, it actually turns into an IJN captain.

You know, it's foolish to get rid of any of these ships.  On 200X days, you can send one IJN captain through co-op in all these dragon and ARP ships and suck up an extra 200K capt. XP in the process.  They count as a pseudo IJN premium ship.

And when modules or consumables go on sale, they also serve as storage for them as well.

I also keep them because I'm a collector and I don't mind the clutter.  I keep my ship order to 'last played' and they file themselves away in the back nicely.

It's a re-skin. You can buy the ship anytime.

Thanks for the info, guys. I'll definitely retrain the commander to another Japanese ship.

As was mentioned, it's just a Myoko with fancy paint, and I can always get the tech tree version. I'm not a collector, so it has no value as a rare ship to me. The credits are more valuable to me than the ship. Someone mentioned running commanders through it for the XP, but that would mean I'd have to play it. I have other Japanese premiums for that.

As for disabling the view? Well, I kind of like the paint job, I just hate the ship it's on.

As a premium ship, it also had premium bonuses to XP? and Credits, though those are unpublished.

I can't argue with that.  I'd love to see that on my Musashi or Yammy.

Is there any info on it having premium bonuses to XP? As I far as I'm aware, there were never any bonuses associated with this ship, but I know there have been changes to the ARP ships recently. Maybe that's changed.

I haven't sold it yet, so I suppose I'll wait until this is answered.
