Emden — German promo premium Tier II cruiser.

This ship served as a multipurpose protected cruiser of the German Navy. Compared with the lead ship, she had a different type of propulsion. She carried numerous rapid-fire artillery of a relatively small caliber, and was well protected for a ship of her type.

The ship was given to players for free during the 2015 holiday season by completing a three part mission series. Has been in and out of the Shop and the Armory since.

Sister ship to Tier II tech tree cruiser Dresden, Emden has a storied history worthy of more than a few films and books. Her incarnation in World of Warship is faithful to the legendary raider, and a fun premium for her tier.

With a main battery comprised exclusively of 105mm guns, Emden will frequently spew out dozens and dozens of shells for minimal damage. However, she not only has two fewer guns than Dresden, but they also have about a kilometer less range. Her guns are effective against enemy destroyers, but that effectiveness falls off quickly against cruisers and battleships. Her armor piercing shells lack adequate velocity and power to penetrate anything but other lightly-armored cruisers, and even then only at point-blank ranges (5.0 km or less). Max AP damage is 500 less than her sister ship's shells while the arc on both their shells is fairly high; landing hits at maximum range will require a significant amount of lead, and AP damage at such ranges will be low or non-existent. Smart captains can use her shell arc to her advantage, however, by using islands as cover and firing over them. Her main battery is weaker than that of Dresden as well; she has fewer guns overall and weaker armor-piercing shells.

Most players won't spend a ton of time in Emden — enough to make some quick credits or re-train a commander — which makes her faults and weaknesses easy to overlook. Overall, she is a fragile ship with relatively weak guns that excels at eliminating enemy destroyers but struggles against most anything else.

Pros:

  • Insanely fast reload.
  • Great turret turning time.
  • Excellent at killing enemy destroyers.
  • Is essentially a clone of Dresden in every way that matters; players familiar with her sister ship will have no problem playing her.
  • AP can overmatch 6mm extremities of most tier 2 and 3 cruisers, which lets her take advantage of her exceptional AP dpm

Cons:

  • Shortest firing range of all Tier II cruisers.
  • HE shells do very small amounts of damage
  • High shell arc.
  • Fairly low health pool for her tier.
  • Her secondary battery is only cosmetic and doesn't actually fire at enemy ships.

Research

As a premium ship, Emden has no modules to research.
