Is IHFE worth it on this?

Me thinks yes.

Also, 19pt build suggestions welcomed.

IFHE will allow the Anshan to penetrate 28mm armor, which would mean more reliable damage against cruiser superstructures.  There are lots of arguments either way about the value of IFHE on DDs (other than IJN 100mm guns, everyone agrees to get IFHE for those), but I always get IFHE myself because I like doing damage to CAs.

No. 

There are other captain skills that are more valuable.  PM, LS, EM, BFT, SI, CE, AFT.  Can switch whatever other 3pt perk for SI if you want but I dont die and end up using all my consumables.

@sourmash you don't need it.

My 19 pt captain nearly mirrors MountainManxDan except I run PT instead of PM. I did try IFHE and DE in place of AFT and BFT but found the lack of range and reload more of a handicap. I may not do as much damage or set as many fires but this DD can annoy any BB and CA and survive better, with little loss in accuracy, at greater range.

I tried it but didn't really see a difference.  I've also tried SE and even the Radio one.... nah.  So now I run:

- PM

- EM/LS

- SI/DE  *BFT instead of DE is good too tho 

- AFT/CE

 

She's the best of both RUS and IJN lines - the guns and speed to shoot at anyone in open water (and don't neglect the AP into broadside Cruisers and BBs) but with the stealth and torps to Ninja DS some poor ole BB'er.  :fish_haloween:
