Disclaimer: The main topic of this guide isn’t about leveling up your waifu ships. It’s more tailored for those who wish to speed up their Commander leveling process and quickly unlock all the amenities in the game.

Ever feel like your Commander is leveling way slower than it should? Well, check the number of ships in your fleet and count. 2? 3? If yes, then you have found the problem – the lack of ships in your fleet. Using two ships as the BASE value (2 is the bare minimum to deploy a fleet), here’s a chart of how much experience your Commander (player account) would get with additional ships in the fleet:

Number of Ships in Fleet+XP% Gain from Ship AdditionTotal XP Gain
2BASE Value0%
  • The 4th Ship gives 42% instead of the usual 33%. If you can’t run a full 6-ship fleet for reasons beyond your control, then a 4-ship fleet should suffice due to the bonus XP gain from adding a fourth ship to your fleet.

As you can see on the chart, having more ships in your fleet after each fight dramatically increases the amount of XP your Commander will receive after each engagement. For example, a player with a farm fleet of 5-ships will receive 2x more Commander XP than a player farming the same content with only 2 ships. While a limit broken SSR Main Fleet ship and a high evasion Vanguard ship could farm low-level content just fine by themselves, it’s not recommended to do so due to the XP loss of not having more ships in the fleet.
Use A Low Oil Set-up while Farming for Commander XP

Low oil consumption equals more runs in the long-run. More runs equal more XP.

Only for players who have plenty of time on their hand to play the game every single day. At the moment, Fletcher fleets use the least oil:

  • Fletcher vanguard fleet will only cost 4-9 oil (depending on ship level), and they usually have Unicorn/Shouhou, and two other ships in the main fleet. A fair warning, however. Due to the Lvl. 70 cap for non-limit break ships, the Lvl. 70 Fletcher vanguard fleet would have a hard time farming Map 7 and up. If you want to future-proof your vanguard, use other farming ships that you’re comfortable with instead.
