Well I managed to get 4 copies of Wales from the event map, so I'm done grinding that. I do still need one more copy of Vampire, but I don't know how many copies of Ark Royal / Glowworm I need to burn before that happens.

Also,

Coming soon....Probably immediately after this event

STILL NO KAGA, I'm so mad. Yet I'm holding strong on not continuing forward with chapter 4 until I get both fox sisters.

^I tried farming 3-4 for a bit and I got another copy of Kaga. Still no Akagi......

Got like 120 cubes saved for the upcoming event, hopefully I get Shoukaku early then I'm farming for Zuikaku.

I wouldn't mind getting Enterprise, but I don't need a million non-rate up SR's again

Got Enterprise (finally) and Shoukaku early!

I'll definitely be able to get 200+ cubes for the next big summoning event (which will probably be the German girls).

Just started playing a week ago and I'm finally starting to get a hold of how things work. I've gotten Shoukaku, San Diego, Illustrious, Belfast, and Takao so far. I'm not really sure who I should focus on, lol.

Hi, I'm new to the game and have a few questions I could not find answers to elsewhere and hope someone here can help:

1. If I get two copies of an SSR ship, should I use one to limit break the other? Or would it be wiser to level them both?

I somehow built two Prinz Eugen and I'm lost as to what is the best thing to do with the other copy. Been using my copies of elites and lower to LB since they are easier to get, but SSRs are harder to come by and thus I want to make sure I don't waste extras here.

I also play Fate Grand Order and it that game you just use new copies to limit break and can't use dupes in the same party so there is no point to having more than one copy of a servant. I additionally play Fire Emblem Heroes and in that having two or more copies of a SSR hero is worthwhile as you can use them in the same party in most cases.

2. Can you use two of the same exact ship in the same formation? If not, can you use the same ship in formation 2 as in formation 1?

3. How do you open up the cat house and academy?

4. What is the best way to get SR gears?

5. How do you get more gems? Can you only buy them and get them from weekly rewards?

I accidentally wasted 300 gems starting out on healing my ships playing the story not realizing they were the rarer bought items at the time, sigh.

6. Any advice for good ship formation compatibility?

I know some ships have sister ones that make them even better together, but besides those I'm just looking for ships that seem to pair well with others.

7. I'm on the Sandy server. Does the server I'm on matter besides for ranking and guild purposes?

8. The Visitors Dyed in Red event is kicking my butt on normal, any advice on how to get gud fast so I can clear the event shop and the event quests before it ends?

Here are screens of my dock for reference of what I'm working with currently:


Also, what should I do to deal with dock overcapacity?

I have a bunch of common ship copies I did not show above at level 1. Should I just retire them or feed them to other ships for the stat boosts?

Welcome, fellow master shikikan!
I've found the OP of this AL reddit post to be very helpful: https://www.reddit.com/r/AzureLane/comments/9m3bvp/amazons_study_hall_daily_questions_megathread_1007/
My only experience has been with the EN server Avrora since the open beta launched, but I'll try my best to answer.

1. I haven't seen much of a need to raise two of the same SR. Only two fleets can be sent on missions and it's usually best to have one fleet with your best ships be the boss killer and the other be a low cost fleet to handle mobs. The only reason I can think of if you want to raise two copies are for Yamashiro, Fusou, Hyuuga, and Ise because their retrofit/kai upgrades change their hull types from Battleships to Aviation Battleships.

2. Can't use two of the same ship in the same fleet, but a copy on a another fleet is allowed.

3. The academy and cat house haven't been implemented yet on EN.

4. At low commander levels, buying gold tech packs from the shop is probably your best bet for SR gear. One you reach Commander Level 50+, the Urgent Ops daily will have a chance to drop gold tech packs.

5. Gems are very limited. Three-starring main missions the first time and completing collections will reward some gems. On very rare occasions, a commission with a chance to reward some gems will appear (I've only seen this appear twice so far and was only rewarded gems one of those times).

6. Check the ship's skills. For example, Leander (one of great common ships btw, especially after retrofit) has a skill that increases the firepower of other cruisers (both light and heavy) in the same fleet as her. I have her in my boss killer fleet along with Portland and Belfast.
For ship placement in a fleet, the tankiest ship in your vanguard should be in the left slot, second tankiest in the right slot, squishiest in the middle.

7. Other than ranking and guilds, the SR ship in the Exchange will be different for each server.

8. High tier leveled gear helps, of course. Level advantage between your ships and the enemy's contributes greatly to the amount of damage given and received.
"For example, if your ship is level 1 and enemy's ship is level 51, enemy ships will deal 150% damage to your ship while your ship will deal 50% damage to his, vice versa. Bonus from Level Advantage caps out at 25 levels, or 50% Damage Dealt and -50% damage received or the other way round." - https://azurlane.koumakan.jp/Combat#Glossary

Put the ships you plan on using in your dorm and always supply it with food for the passive exp. Running the high level commission that costs oil also helps with exp during work or overnight. Don't forget to do Exercises. They're basically free exp even if you lose the match.


Extra commons should be used as enhancement fodder. Dupes of Rares and up that you don't plan on using for LB are retired since they give medals for the Exchange.

Like Mobius said, I run a Boss Killer and Mob Clear fleets. You want your Mob Clear fleet to be cheap on oil, so you can go full destroyer or what I do for higher level stuff is Brooklyn(cruiser buff), Phoenix, and Cleveland. Since I find having secondary guns more reliable that torpedos.

On what you have, I definitely recommend leveling Shouhou since she is one of the few healers who also deal damage.
