US DD build idea: viable?

Captain Skills:

PM

LS, AR

SE, (SI or TAE)

CE, RL

 

Equipment:

Main Armaments Mod 1

Engine Boost Mod

Aiming Systems Mod 1

Propulsion Mod 2

Concealment System Mod 1

Torpedo Mod (Don't know the name of it)

 

This is the  build I'm planning to have on Benson, Fletcher, and Gearing? I'm on Benson right now, I don't have AR, RL, or SI on my captain yet, I'm waiting till he gets his 14th point to get RL.

 

This build is meant to maximize the "contest caps, battles enemy DD's, spot for your allies, and torpedo enemy BB's" gameplay that suits DD's.

 

Does anyone have any notes to add or anything point out?

Be wary contesting caps in USN DD's. They can get shot to swiss cheese by the real gun boats. RU, RN, KM, IJN, French DD's have hydro, healing, armor, and a rate of fire faster than the USN DD's. Once in the higher tiers USN DD's are more smokers and spotters with the ability to shoot up pure torp boats *cough* shimakaze *cough*

High tier usn dds are now torp boats with better support abilities like the AA mod and long smoke to cover team and good and detection for spotting and gearing is a great torp boat.

I run torpedo acceleration on Gearing. 16k isn’t really much better than 12k, but the extra 5 kts gets more hits. Unfortunately, TA doesn’t make sense for Benson/Fletcher.

I use PT instead of PM.

SI instead of TAE 

Smoke mod instead of engine boost

Legendary mod [ used ROF b4 that]

This is my Gearing build for Clan Wars.

For ranked substitute def AA for speed boost.

I have two captains for gearing

randoms.

pm, pt

ar, ls

se, TAE, bft

ce

torp mod. 
 

ranked
 

I drop pt and TAE for rdf and swap torp mod for main bat 3

when I first got fletcher and gearing USN dds were the King of close range daka daka. Daring, Kleber, UU on Groz are all more than capable of chewing up a USN dd. Randoms I spot and torp. In randoms rdf is a very useful skill and I want the guns to finish off wounded dds. I don’t blind fire my torps in random so fast reload isn’t critical to me

hope this helps
