Have enjoyed playing the Kagero and now have her captain in the Yugumo (16 pt).  Two very specific questions:

1) Consumable: Torpedo reload booster or smoke?  Since her guns are better, I've played a few Co-op games with smoke and have found it very advantageous to fire within.  I know what TRB does from my time in the Kagero.  Which one is more advantageous for this particular ship?

2) Captain's Skill: Is RPF worth the 4 points on this ship?  He already has TAE and I'd love to use at least 3 of the points for SE or SI.

Yes and Yes.

I never run smoke when TRB is an option and RPF is great on DDs. For Yugo its great for both avoiding engagements with other DDs and giving you a good idea where to blind fire torps.

Do you want to play a ship with Offensive tool or Defensive tool ? If you want to focus on Offense, take TRB but if you want to have some Defensive tool take smoke. Note that smoke can be used as an Offensive tool too but in that case, TRB is a better pick.

 

Personnally I wouldn't recommend playing TRB without at least a 14pt commander with CE+RPF. The lack of smoke is a big deal if you want to play a kind of aggressive-passive gameplay which is why RPF is for me a must have. To answer to the question :

 

1- Looks above

 

2- It's definitely a good perk no matter what consummable you take.

RPF is almost essential for a nekkid Yugumo build without smoke. It helps you avoid contact with red DDs. It also gives you vital information for area denial and luck chuck torps. 

I literally can’t remember the last time I ran her with smoke. 

My build:

Preventative Maintenance, Last Stand, Torpedo Armamant Expertise, Concealment Expert, Radio Location, Adreneline Rush and Survivabilty Expert (in that order).

The Radio Location skill, originally called Radio Position Finding or RPF. It shows you the direction of the closest enemy ship. 

Here’s a great reference on how to use it:

Just bought my Yugumo.back my captain is similar except I have BFT. As I dont have smoke I seldom fire guns so I think I'll drop that and put LS and PM on. I like PT so I'm keeping that
