This week is a great week, because alas, AEGIS is here!!!

 

If some of you haven't realised, AEGIS is dank.  But some ships are more dank than others..

 

What you need:
-Premium account (just a week will do, cos scenarios change weekly)

-A dank light cruiser, with the preferred ships (in decreasing order) as below:
>De Grasse (Citadel Kuma at about 14km, Furutaka/Aoba at about 12km, Myoko at about 10km)
>Nurnberg (Citadel Kuma at about 12km, Furutaka/Aoba at about 8.7km, Myoko at just under 7km)
>Cleveland (Citadel Kuma at about 13km, Furutaka at about 11km, Myoko at 9km)
>Budyonny (similar shells as de Grasse in terms of penetration)
>La Galissonaire (same shells as De Grasse)
Note that Kuma can be overmatched by 152mm AP through its bow
 

Instruction: 

0. Mount all the xp multiplier flags and xp camo, solo queue AEGIS.
1. Rush the smoke laid by the mahan, farm broadsides (try to get about 40k damage for the first wave.  Shooting at CA broadsides instead of DDs actually give more xp and credits since a volley of 3 citadels is like half a cruiser's HP.  Stay behind the DD so as to dodge potential torps from the Poi spam.

2. When ships in the north appear, turn to the west, and let the ships fire at the ships left in the smoke (when it disappears), or any ship north of the smoke.  Remember to head west first, as bots will sail in straight lines along set path, and will fire at the closest target it can shoot.  While moving, keep spamming HE at the Cruisers.  Remember that higher tier Cruisers give more XP.
3. While the BB/CA/DD is being fired upon, turn towards the north, and farm citadels from the broadside cruisers.  This should not take more than 15 salvoes.  Once you are done with the CL/CAs, deal with the Ishizuchi with torps (if you have them), or else just try to angle and avoid torps, then sail away to the north.
4. Proceed north and farm the 2 Cruiser broadsides.  These ships will be close and will fire at you, but just use WASD while you slam citadels into their broadsides.

5. Once you clear closest cruisers, shoot the further cruisers at the other side of the convoy.

6. When the cruisers die, two CVs will spawn (or possibly BBs too).  In the latter case, just YOLO and try to do as much damage as possible, since by now you should probably already have over 100k damage.  Else just farm the CV and their planes.  You might want to use AP for citadels and to keep their deck in commission so as to farm more planes (also, pls take DFAA).  Head east as you do this.
7. When you killed the Zuiho and/or the Hosho, try to kill the Ryujo to the east.

8. By this time you probably have almost 200k damage already, and the enemy fleet is rushing your team.  So just keep rushing the enemy and farm as much damage as possible since the game is probably ending.

 

Proper selection of ammo type and aim would reward you greatly.  Remember how bots operate, don't take unnecessary damage, and farm as many bots as possible.

 

So enjoy, and farm your free xp and credits, without all the salt from randoms!
So far my record is only 2501 base xp but I guess it is possible to be higher.

 

pls exploit before WG nerfs this, and take respite from the weekends with this

duca d'osta is also very good. 

 

 

That is actually true, it is fast, turns well, and has dank AP.  Definitely a pick too...
Actually, just play them to farm first wins for extra xp bonus.

wait is this with the 200% XP bonus or just normal?

nope, both the 8k and 9k free xp games were without first win bonus but with all the xp and free xp flags stacked.  Also added drakon flags for more captain xp.

Only thing is that some ships need to go east after the first wave though, to deal with the escort cruisers that are in the middle and east side of the formation. I find for BBs you can rack up similar high scores going east after the first wave then north(dealing with the 2 CVs at range) and then northeast, so you deal with the RJ and fight many more cruisers. If the whole team stacks to the west and no one deals with the 2-3 cruisers the at side, the mission might fail.

I've been grinding t5/6 ships since the introduce of this operation. Gives me much more exp in general and there is little chance of losing because the operation itself is very simple. Sadly WG don't allow t5 ships to take part in PvE anymore :/

Can BB adapt for your instructions? 

 

Tier 6 BBs are nowhere near as fun as cruisers to play on this particular scenario. You can't beat a salvo fill of citadels every 7.5 seconds. 

 

For Aegis you want to be moving around a lot to position yourself at the broadsides of the bot cruisers. The crap speeds of the Tier 6 BBs don't really let you do that.

IMO, the best ships for each scenario are:

- Aegis: De Grasse, Duca, Cleveland, Budyonny

- Raptor Rescue: Ryujo, Independence, Cleveland, Farragut, Okhotnik

- Newport Defence: Ryujo, Independence, Cleveland, De Grasse

- Killer Whale: Cleveland 

 

Therefore, if in doubt, take the Cleveland

TL:DR - take the Warpsite

FTFY

Surprisingly, I've also done alright with the Leander for this scenario.  Pop smoke once the CVs appear and you can go farming for minutes.

Leander and Perth also have very good guns, excellent penetration, and there’s a smoke to ensure no Kuma wants to spam you

 

Also, FYI here’s the penetration of T6 cruisers

Perth/Leander 203/121/75

La Gali/De Grasse 205/132/87

Nürnberg 154/89/52

Duca D Austa 202/123

Aoba 297/203

Cleveland 199/129

Budyonny 219/140/91

Molotov 317/234/174

(Gnevny and Anshan) 124/77

IIRC ST version Duca had like 1.8k Krupp, while the current one has 2142...

In a word all cruisers other than a Nurnberg have good penetration, Nooberg AP is bad against cruisers other than a Kuma

+1 to everything said. This scenario is super dank. I'm grinding out the Oleg missions in Aegis and even in the (imo) mediocre Galisson I'm getting 150k+ damage and 4+ stars pretty much every single time.

Thanks OP for the heads up. With De Grasse, La Galissonaire, Cleveland and Budyonny in my port this can be farmed quickly.

Usually with great results. However, there is the occasional bad sport that pushes you out or blocks you in the first smoke. Also, some people seem to be of the opinion that particular targets are theirs exclusively and will hurl insults at you if you dare shoot at it...
