I have JJ Honore in this bote, and he just hit 19 points. I have 4 points to spend.

Current Skills:

1 points: PM

2 points: EM, AR

3 points: BOS, Si

4 points: CE

So, the 2 logical choices are either fire prevention or AFT.  The amount of HE volcanoes in T10 is pretty good reason for FP. But, the CV rework promises probably 2 Midways per battle and a 98 AA rating isn't too shabby. 

What say you???

This is the build I used for my French BBs.

The same thing I am running, but you went AA/Secondaries.

You don't have issues with fire???  I find this bote is made of cardboard soaked in gasoline.

IMO FP is better. Its the safe build with the HE spam meta. Unless you div wiht a CV, than AFT becomes a decent choice.

You can get by in your Tier X Battleships just fine without Fire Prevention.  I have a lot of High Tier Battleships in Secondary, AA Specs and it's been just fine.  The only reason I took FP on certain High Tier BBs is because they don't have much of a Secondary nor AA to spec for.

 

Conqueror is such a case for me.

My Tier VIII-X USN BBs are AA Spec.

My Tier VIII-X German BBs are Secondary Spec.

None of my French BBs are Survival Build, all the way into Tier X.

Etc.  They don't have FP nor BOS.

 

As long as you're not an idiot putting your BB into obvious focus fire positions and know how to manage your consumables, you're fine.

"get by" is key here.  FP is optimal on Repub in current meta.  2ndary build works, just not as well.

I doubt that.

YMMV.

What works for one person, may not work for another?

Fire will be an issue even with FP.

With both my Alsace before and the Repub now I try not to find myself in a position that I can be under prolonged HE spam.

Always moving and save that speed boost for when you have to turn tail and run.

For my playstyle AFT wordk best as I get the range on the secondaries and AA. It can be downright hilarious when a CV tries sending a strike and your boosting away eating up his planes.

Caveat, I do run fire flags also, which helps mitigate the burn time.

I shared this game earlier, check out the fire damage. Got hit 238 times by HE shells, but was fortunate only 3 fires.

I've played games where one salvo u get lit 3 places, put it out and then one shell hits and you're burning again. RNG can hate or be on your side. I prefer the offensive spend of 4 points than reducing one fire zone.

Note that Repubs deck armour will eat HE pens for days.

Max your secondary range first and then move on to survivability traits.

Going just main-gun/survivability build just doesn’t harness the strengths of this ship while keeping the weaknesses.  With FP, ok, you have a lower fire percentage, but In all likelihood that only saves you from one, maybe two, fires a match.
