Zao Legendary Mod - The Hype is Real!

I decided to get Zao legendary mod per flamu's advice. It took me 74 matches to get it. I decided to test it out. My play style with the Zao is that of long range open water sniper. It's a perfect counter to the island humpers. You have the dispersion and shell times to set fire to sitting targets. The biggest drawback is that your rudder shift is not fast enough to avoid getting citadeled. The legendary mod mitigates it that most ships  leave you alone after a salvo because they're either missing or the shells are bouncing off.  If you have a spotter plane mod 1 and are [edited] that you can't use it, this is the perfect ship to use it in. You can extend the spotting time to 130 seconds.

 

Now, my average is around 62k damage. This is the result of the first use of the Legendary mod.

So I'll be trying it out in Clan Battles and see if it works.

Have you tried a Max Rudder build?

SGM2 + SGM3 + Legendary Mod

Considering that you favour Open Water firing. It might be worth trying out. Sure Max Conceal takes you to below 10km detection. But if range is your thing, in open waters, having a sub 3s rudder shift might be an interesting option. 

But if you're grabbing the 12km Torps you still have a decent stealth Torp window.

I would run aiming mod but thats just me.  Using in ranked and then CB you don't see CVs much if any.   I also pretty much always use Main Arm mod 1 as well.

this is a build for PvP, SAM1 is better than MAM1 because with the legendary mod zao it loses 1Km of range compared to GFCSM2.
yes, in ranked and mostly in CW, ASM1 is better than AAGM2...
