After a hiatus, I am planning to recommence grinding her towards the Roon. Just want to seek your opinions on the following:

 

1. 5th module - TAS mod 1 or Concealment mod 1?

2. Camo - Type 1 (reduce detectability) or Type 2 (reduce enemy's firing accuracy)


 

Your thoughts/inputs will be much appreciated

1. Honestly I would save your money as IMO both upgrades aren't worth the cost.

2. I use Type 2.

I've been squirrelling away $$$ by farming with my lower tier ships, hence my hiatus from the Hipper. It's time to grind for a Roon, better ROF and cit armor. So yeah, thanks for all the feedbacks. Will do TAS and Camo Type 2. I suppose the same would apply for the Roon.

Who the hell ever use Type 1 camo on a bloody cruiser?

 

 

ME :D:D:D

 

 I guess improving concealment would be more applicable for IJN cruisers since their detectability are generally lower compared to KM cruisers

Actually i even run Camo type 1 on Battleship, may sound weird but with concealment set-up is much easier for me to get close to cruiser :P

Concealment is essential on cruisers at high tier to disengage, or at least get into optimal firing range without taking too many salvos. TAS is a waste of credits.

 

Type 2 camo - detectability goes out the window once you commence firing, so no point in that.

Found this while trolling WoWs US forum.

Edit : You'll need a 15 points Captain :great:

 

"I found their detection range good for cruisers.  with the concealment Module the Hipper is 12.8, the Nurnberg is 12.6 with no module ( it cant get it), Konigsberg 12.4, Roon 13 with Module, Hindenberg is 16 without. But you can build a stealth cruiser with the camo Mod and captain skill  so take the Hipper at give it all of those and you get a detection range of 11km.  its max range is 17.7 so I think it can inisvafire at its max range. Hell the Konig with Camo, and concealment has a detection of 10.5km  and with AFT a range of 19.8. pare that with its good ROF and you are InvisaBombing  BBs across the map, same with Nurnberg only its detection range is 10.7kms

I might have to build one" http://forum.worldofwarships.com/index.php?/topic/63997-admiral-hipper-which-5th-module-target-acquisition-or-concealment/
