So...How do you know if +25% (Vigilance) or 3.5k (Hydroacoustic Search) is best?

Lol...Yes but If you could only choose 1?

Torpedo Acquisition gives you less additional warning but is always on. Hydro gives you more warning and time but you have to activate it and it has a cooldown.

It depends... Vigilance takes affect once its picked and it increases the range of hydro...

Just having Hydro... Hydro can spot torps and ships for short range. So again, it depends on ship, your play style and your purpose for the ship in the match.

I cant in good faith say one or the other without knowing what ship.

And I like to brawl with it and take advantage of the FANTASTIC secondaries so I tend to get closer than I probably should lol.

Well you always have the hydro consumable which spots torps from 3.5km. Taking the Vigilance skill would help increase the torp spotting range (if you have hydro active or not), but overall the 3 points would probably be better spent somewhere else, especially if you are not using a special captain with the boosted vigilance skill.

Good call. I would be ready to argue that SI is the most important skill on any BB. By all counts a far better use of points than vigilance, even on hydro ships. 

 

An extra heal and hydro charge are gonna get you way more than a second or two of extra torpedo reaction time

Bismark has hydro....

So if you use Vigilance,  it will extend the hydro range.
