I have no other British ships, but could not pass up the 50% off price. What do I do with this ship and no British Captain?

If you have no British ships from which you can transplant a Captain, you'll have to recruit one.

This sounds like a job for @LittleWhiteMouseIt is or was her favorite ship after all. You could start working up the British BB line though.

Well you can recruit a Captain just like it was a Tech tree Ship.  Click on the spot where the captains portrait would be and there is an option to recruit a captain.

Throw on main battery, damage control, aiming systems, and either damage control or ruddershift for your upgrades. Then for captian do something like PT, EM/AR, SI, CE. Warspite doesn't really need to be built around AA/secondaries so just build for survivability and flexibility.

Just what ever you do do not sell a premium ship.

you need turret rotation skill or warspite is a nightmare, also concealment cause everything outranges her, so you need a 10point captain.

For your Upgrades, focus on fire prevention and your secondaries.

For Commander Skills, you want to take a mix of abilities to improve gunnery performance.  You don't need to worry as much about fire prevention in Warspite as other battleships with her improved Repair Party and Damage Control Party.

Make sure you take premium consumables and load up on the following signals as often as you can afford.

Warspite is what the BB British line shoulda been.

Focus on a secondary build, RULE BRITANNIA!

not my prefered build but i have Jack Dunkirk as the captain.

i run my captain like this.

http://shipcomrade.com/captcalc/1000000011100010100001000000000119

HE spam is tolerable and the cooldown on repair party and damage control are pretty low.

but without Jack Dunkirk, i would skill like that as well.

 

upgrades are pretty standard.

i have target system mod 1 and rudder shift installed.

If you recruit a captain for the Warspite you will need to train it to a tree ship to play the line later...& if you run the Warspite a lot it will be very expensive to do that later...& you do have a British ship (or at least one available for free)...the Black Swan...recruit a commander for it...play the battle or 2 in the Black Swan to get to T2 (or more preferably grind up to at least T4...doesn't take a lot of games to do that) before using it on Warspite as Warspite will build your commander real quick & you don't wanna be spending all that training cost transferring a high level commander between low tier ships.

TL/DR: Never recruit a commander for a Premium (unless there are no tree ships in that nation of course)...recruit it for the tree ship...it transfers free to the premium.

Does anyone know if the Warspite shells have high fire chances like UK BBs are reputed for?

I just bought it and only played a couple of games using a cruiser captain, plays quite nicely on scenario and coop.  I played it like a US BB though, firing mostly AP shells.

Play her only in operations to train her captain quickly.

No, she does not.  Warspite has the same fire chance as Hood (34%) which is lower than that of Queen Elizabeth (35%).  Generally speaking, throw AP in Warspite whenever possible.  Her 381mm guns can overmatch anything except the bows of tier 8 battleships along with German and American heavy cruisers at tier 8.

whenever you fire HE with the warspite, a small puppy dies.

her AP is monstrous and together with her high accuracy and cruiser like handling, you don't really need HE. Especially angled or bow on ships are no problem. 

 

just watch out for HE spamming ships and everything. That can overmatch your bow and stern.

on tier six only Mutsu and Bayern can do that. On tier seven colorado, nagato, ashitaka and gneiseneu join the party and on tier eight, every BB should be able to do it.

You may bruise your wallet this month, then.  Every day a new ship will go on sale, until July 27.  We will see if each one comes with the same 50% off or a lessor discount.

Run it in Ops.  It can really wreck face in Killer Whale and Aegis.  Good way to grind commander XP.  Turns really tight so it can torpedo beat if you pick up the torps soon enough.
