Mutsu - Need advice

I purchased this battleship some time ago but I am unable to make it works well. I like the concept of the ship, a Nagato with defensive torps, but I find Fuso easier to play and more effective, my average damage with Mutsu is 30000 which is not great. With the presence of CVs meaning several planes, I find Mutsu AA really useless and I am constantly an easy target for CVs. Also, which captain skills would you recommend?

Funny you should mention it--I just sold mine a few days ago. Why play the Mutsu when I have a Nagato with perm camo? The torps are about as useful as fins on a '59 Buick. So, she was removed from the fleet finally.

(Mweh-heh-heh; I predict your next SC will have a Mutsu... Like the mythical Monkey paw, sold premiums come back to haunt you. Someone posted recently about selling Kut, and buying crates; in which they received a Kut...)

The first thing I would recommend is for you to read @LittleWhiteMouse's review of Mutsu; it holds some very helpful information and will aid you in learning how to best play the ship. I love mine, which I won in a supercontainer, even though I am NOT in any way, shape, or form a BB main. I enjoy her tankiness, and the impact those 16" guns can have on the enemy. Like many BBs, she is vulnerable to fire, torps, and air power, so yoloing is a bozo no no. She has good range, hits like a truck, and can bounce a lot of incoming shells if angled correctly. She also handles like a truck, burns like a dry forest, and is about as maneuverable as a drunken fat girl on roller skates. She requires love and patience, but can reward the experienced hand. Good luck with yours and don't get discouraged.

Good luck with yours and don't get discouraged.

Yes I didn't mean to imply she is a bad ship, at all. But I prefer those guns on the Nagato or Amagi.

One of the fascinating things about this game is the synergy that certain players have with certain ships. That's my epiphany for today.

I don't feel like it was a particularly strong ship in the first place, and it's just made worse now by all the planes.

Who doesn't, though it isn't the guns, it's the ammo. The guns are the same. But that's why one is tier 8, one is tier 7, and Mutsu is tier 6.

When the Smoke - Gun Detection Nerf hit, a bunch of idiots sold off their Belfasts and Kutuzovs.

I like when things go well in this ship but most of the times are not. For example, I just finished my latest game sunk because the two CVs were focusing on me and I couldn't dodge all the torps and bombs. The AA is too weak to compete against two CVs, not to mention if one of them is 2 tiers above. Any captain skills you can recommend me for Mutsu?

Tier 1 skills: pick one skill, which ever you prefer.

Tier 2 skills: Jack of all trades, High Alert.

Tier 3 skills: Superintendent, Survivability Expert.

Tier 4 skills: Fire Prevention, Advanced Fire training.

On a side note I'd also recommend taking the Propulsion Modification 2 upgrade and putting the Sierra Mike Signal flag on the Mutsu, that way the AA bubble from your team can't leave you behind and it'll help with avoiding torpedo's since you move much faster. Also try to avoid any incoming fire from anything bigger then a 14 inch gun as it will plow through your armor even if you angle.
