Player Opinion


Daring finds herself as one of the strongest destroyers at Tier X. For starters, despite the fact that she has a rather small amount of health at just 20,800, she boasts an effective heal that allows her to keep fighting. She carries 6 guns in 3 twin D.P. turrets that rotate 360*, and while her 113mm caliber guns are rather small, thanks to the improved AP auto-bounce and fuse timer, as well as brutal HE shells, she can easily dispatch overconfident DDs who unwisely seek her out as easy prey (and she will dispatch them quickly, thanks to a reload time of just 2.6 seconds stock).

Daring's torpedoes are an oddity, being the same ones found on Minotaur, with a 10km range and 62 knots of speed. While they are mediocre, comparable to those of Z-52 or Grozovoi, she can single fire them, and a skilled player can fire them with surgical precision to quickly take down opposing cruisers or battleships or set floods on them, baiting out their damage control, after which Daring can smoke up and immediately burn down the enemy.

Daring does have downsides, however. Her concealment can only reach 6.00km, which allows other DDs to sneak up on her and deliver powerful blows that could possibly cripple her. She does equip a hydroacoustic search set that allows her to sneak up on destroyers hiding in smoke, but it has a limited range of just 3.0 kilometers compared to the 4/6km of Z-52. Also, she's rather sluggish at 35kts base, which is further compounded by a lack of engine boost to speed things along.

Overall, she's an excellent hybrid DD that makes the best of both worlds of torpedo boats and gunboats. Use these things wisely, and she will reward you handsomely.


  • Unmatched ability among destroyers to start fires with her HE shells; only Småland comes close.
  • Torpedoes are stealthy and can be single-fired.
  • Enhanced AP auto bounce angles increases the shells' effectiveness vs. angled targets.
  • Heal allows Daring to stay in the fight for longer.
  • Her Short-Burst Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) with short cooldown, can make 'hit and run' style tactics very effective and also offers some protection against aircraft carriers by hiding. Due to the high number of charges, using one is not as costly as on a Gearing or Shimakaze.
  • Short-Range Hydro-Acoustic Search (While active, detects all enemy ships and torpedoes within the specified radius, without regard of obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) can keep her from being surprised by torpedoes.


  • Long torpedo reload.
  • Concealment is worse than her predecessor, Jutland.
  • The lack of Engine Boost (While active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.) makes Daring slow when compared to other destroyers at her tier.
  • No Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) to increase her AA effectiveness.
  • Her Short-Burst Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) has a short action time and smoke duration.


As a Tier X ship, Daring has no modules to research.

Optimal Configuration


As a hybrid destroyer reliant on her concealment, Concealment System Modification 1 (Reduces the detectability range of the ship and aircraft carrier's squadrons: -10% to detectability radius. / +5% to the dispersion of enemy shells fired at your ship.) is a vital upgrade which helps to reduce her detection. To further supplement her role, Main Armaments Modification 1 (-20% to the risk of main battery becoming incapacitated. / +50% to main battery survivability. / -20% to main battery repair time. / -20% to the risk of torpedo tubes becoming incapacitated. / +50% to torpedo tubes survivability. / -20% to torpedo tubes repair time.) will help prevent her torpedoes and weapons being knocked out.Torpedo Tubes Modification 1 (+20% traverse speed of torpedo tubes. / −40% chance of critical damage to torpedo tubes. / +5% to the speed of shipborne torpedoes.) is useful, for the increased torpedo speed and increased torpedo tube traverse rate. Finally, as a British destroyer, Daring finds herself unable to equip Propulsion Modification 1 (Reduces time to full speed: -50% to time for reaching full power. / Increases engine power when the ship starts moving.) so either Steering Gears Modification 1 (Reduces rudder shift time: -20% rudder shift time.) or Damage Control System Modification 2 (Accelerates fire extinguishing and recovery from flooding: -15% flooding recovery time. / -15% fire duration.) must be picked depending upon the players preference. Finally, either Torpedo Tubes Modification 2 (Decreases reload time of torpedo tubes: -15% reload time. / +50% risk of incapacitation.) or Main Battery Modification 3 (Reduces the reload time of the main battery guns: -12% main battery loading time. / -13% main battery traverse speed.)
