It seems an appropriate time to finally add Hindenburg to my fleet.

I burnt all my FXP so Agir is a bit further away now. It's not that I dislike Roon... I'm just impatient and I wanted to start retraining Gunther.

He insisted.

Erm... the wiki said Gunther synergises well with Hindenburg - along with AR and his Iron Strike she can fire very quickly.

I also did what the wiki said and put IFHE on Gunther... it says so he can bust up some specific BBs in his spread... he will be my top line cruiser captain... did I do wrong?

Wiki says it allows you to damage the 5 ships - Izumo, Musashi, Yamato, Sovetsky Soyuz and Kremlin. It depends on how often you encounter those ships, how much of a problem those ships pose to you and if it worth giving up half your fire chance.

It boils down to personal preference so I don't think there is a right or wrong answer to this.

Tbh I would not recommend. Why:

- 12 fairly fast reload 203 guns so you should be a good Fire thrower, but IFHE nerfs the fire chance too much.

- you already can do well fighting most ships

- If the 5 ships in Thyaliad's post bow on you likely hit a lot on the turret which you can't pen even with ifhe

- you also should use AP a lot

- LWM said no

I suggest an immediate reset.

Hmmmm.

Maybe I ask for too much from my special captains.

I guess I just want my captains with boosted abilities and special rules to work on many ships.

Maybe I am being unrealistic.

I mean as soon as I put IFHE on Gunther and used him on Mainz his damage went up noticeably - but of course different sized guns.

Hmmmm.

So maybe go back to DE and be a firestarter...? I guess...?

Was just watching this.

He has Expert Loader and Superintendent on Hindenburg.

I think the benefits of EL can be duplicated somewhat by map awareness and the wiki reckons SI is of less use on Hindy - perhaps even more so (less so?) now that all consumables are Premium.

He uses the AA mod for "more FLAK" - the 4 points from EL and SI could be AFT with several benefits - that's IF some extra AA is warranted as he suggests.

What do you think?

OK, I respecced him.

Where would you go from here?

He currently has 17 points so will earn 2 more.

He has 2 points unspent that he could spend now.

So in other words he has 4 more points to spend.

I'm thinking either save the final 4 for AFT or spend 2 on High Alert now - which would mean the last 2 on Last Stand (dubious) or 1 point each in Expert Loader and Incoming Fire Alert.

OR, just grab SI and either EL or IFA.

I really don't rate EL on a ship with sub 10 second reload though.

I would take SI just for the extra heal  and EL since IFA is really not needed when u got priority target

For Hindenberg, may I suggest using helium as your lighter-than-air agent.

Hydrogen seems to get a bit too hot, when you don't want it to.

Sssh, don't talk about the airship...it's a tragedy you know?

The entire Imperial family died there, and only left the lonesome Victoria Louise alive. Tragedy for Kaiserin Victoria the Great of Holy Roman Emp-

wait, which Hindenburg are we talking about?

I dunno about that, but a picture of it would make a great series of album covers for an English 70s rock/blues band.

I get the irony behind making a German fire starter and giving it that name...

Ooooo those Russians....

What do you think?

 

I use SI on all my T10 cruisers, mostly for the additional heal charge. Personally I found the extra heal very useful, but your mileage may vary.

For what it is worth, my Hindy captain build is this:

PT,EM,AR,SI,DE,CE,AFT
