Folks, I'm looking to add a tier 5 IJN DD to my port but I cant decide which to get, Minekaze or Mutsuki. I'm kinda leaning toward Mutsuki but only having 2 guns could be a big handicap in a fight with another DD as I well know from driving Monaghan B hull.

The question could be reframed as: "If I take it the whole way to T10, do I want to finish the grind with Shimakaze or Harugumo?"

If you take either or , the Japanese DDS have very bad gun systems at any tier upwards of getting the Akizuki. The strong points to these ships are torpedoes . The drawback to that is that you have to be patient at higher theirs and spec into special commander skills to get them up to par. Minekaze was a ruthless DD until it got nerfed into the ground . But if you spec right it has upwards of 35 or so seconds on torpedo reload. I personally never liked the Mutsuki and there is a different setup on her.  2x3 -2 instead of the 2x2-3 on the Minekaze. As Ensign said what do you really want at the end , Dakka dakka or torpedo power .

Thanks folks! I don't plan to run the whole line, I'm just interested in a good tier 5 torpedo boat and even with the nerfs that IJN DDs have gotten they're still seem to be good torp shooters.

I prefer Mutsuki myself, but neither IJN tier 5 DD is particularly great.

To be honest, I feel like Minekaze and Hatsuharu are likely the stronger pair at V/VI. That said, you can earn Shinonome as a freemium and she’s a good all around DD. Fubuki has, on paper, better torps, but she trades a turret and two barrels for them. 

I find the four guns on Minekaze serviceable and the fast reload on the torps is still hilarious, even if they are less potent. (Sobs and hugs Fujin tightly).
