So I am starting to use CVs again (Japanese ones... Since I haven't played any of the U.S)

 

I was wondering on which commander skills should I get for my commander in Ryujo =)

 

Thank you. :D

CV captains in general have a pretty straightforward captain skill choices.

For Maximum Aircraft efficiency, take all the skills under the "Aircraft" Column except for the 3rd row(Dogfighting expert) in which most would take Torp Accel

 

Other notable skills that you can consider are:

1st row - BFT for better AA. Situation Awareness actually works well with IJN CVs due to the lower concealment radius and is pretty useful in knowing if an enemy DD snuck up on you or something before it's too late(with the DD closing at 6km)

3rd row - Dogfighting expert is highly situational so not worth it. Although the introduction of Premium CV Saipan might change that.

Torp Acceleration is what most CV captains go for since it makes dodging the torps harder especially for DDs. Some niche captains opt for the -cooldown on the Damage Control since NOT having torp accel makes hitting 4 torps on BBs feasible with a perfect drop while having torp accel makes it impossible.

4th row - AFT is also a viable choice for better air protection. It also makes Secondaries useful to a certain extent.

 

The second and fifth row are pretty undisputable.

Does Torp Acceleration really works for Carriers?  I thought it only worked on DD and Cruisers. :amazed:

It works. It's actually much more viable on carriers since TBs don't even need the range.

Rush your CO for Air Supremacy.

 

get Situational Awareness first.

then Torpedo Armament Expert

then you can get either Torpedo Boost or High Alert. If you're only aiming for a particular tier and not for a tier X, get Dogfighting Expert. (either one of these three)

then Aircraft Servicing Expert.

then Air Superiority. 

 

after that, get whatever the hell you want (like rear gunner expert)

Well sadly I've already got Rear Gunner Expert.. should keep my 2x Points for Service Expert .-. Still need to level up commanders two times to get that other 2 points, or Use one for Situation Awareness? :teethhappy:

Tier(in order)
1. Situational awareness.
2. -Fire %/torp reload
3.Torp Accel
4.aircraft
5.aircraft

2.-Fire%/torp reload
1.Basics of survivability

PS: the reason why you need torp accel is not to make your torps harder to dodge--increasing speed of your torps means you need more lead in your aims as arming time of your torp doesnt change. You need torp accel b/c it complements IJN torpedo squad's converging torpedoes- you purposely aim a lot farther to give your torpedo more time to converge resulting in more 4 torp hits / squad.
