Player Opinion

Performance

Vampire is a tier III Commonwealth destroyer that combines good maneuverability, great guns, and surprising torpedoes, into a deadly package. Rounding her toolkit off is a decent stealth with the concealment expert commander skill, allowing stealth torpedo attacks on unsuspecting victims.

Her guns are her bread and butter. They have a high rate of fire at 12 rounds a minute, a decent fire chance at 6% (Able to be increased 9% with relevant commander skills and signal flags), and excellent fields of fire for the A, B, and X, turrets, with X turret practically able to fire forward. The AP is very potent as well, having excellent penetration for a 102mm shell, able to citadel cruisers at mid to close range; while also being able to get decent penetration damage on broadside battleships and cruisers at mid to long range.

Her torpedo launcher is a different matter, though one that isn't as bad as the stats may say. She has one triple torpedo launcher able to fire 6km range torpedoes out at enemy ships, the tricky part is the firing patterns. She has two patterns, single launch, and wide spread. Wide spread is great for large groups of enemies, and the single launcher allows precision firing of the torpedoes one at a time at targets. A quick 62s reload has torpedoes in the tubes quickly for the next strike.

Her AA isn't much to write home about, being very weak. The captain should steer clear of aircraft.

Her maneuverability is a dream with a 520m turning circle and 2.5s rudder shift time. She is able to dodge and weave incoming fire very well, and makes retreating from enemies much easier.

Her Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) is a key part of her arsenal. Using this she has a 109s uptime for her smoke giving her ample time to fire out of her smoke as she caps, deals damage, or simply retreats.

Pros:

  • Main guns have a great fire rate and range for her tier.
  • The wide firing arcs of the main guns allow captains to fire without exposing much of the ship’s side.
  • Like Gallant, Vampire can launch each torpedo individually, allowing for more precise torpedo attacks.
  • Quick rudder shift time combined with a tight turning circle allow the ship to easily dodge incoming fire.
  • The ship’s smokescreen has a longer duration than most other destroyers at her tier.

Cons:

  • Shell arcs are only slightly below orbital.
  • Vampire only has three torpedoes.
  • Inability to stealth torpedo without Concealment Expert. With the captain skill, you have a 200 meter stealth torpedo window.
  • You may be chased by angry people with pointy sticks, only because of your pointy teeth.

Research

As a premium ship, Vampire doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Vampire are as follows:


Upgrade Slot 1 provides players with a choice between two viable upgrade options. The first is Main Armaments Modification 1, which improves the survivability and repair time of the ship's main armaments. Alternatively, some players may choose to mount Magazine Modification 1 (Reduces the risk of magazine detonation: -70% risk.), an upgrade which significantly reduces the chance of detonation.


Camouflage

As a premium ship, Vampire comes included with Type 9 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
