Build Notes

With this build, Kidd is without a doubt the best gunboat DD at the tier - great survivability with a decent HP pool and (of course) heals, nice range, brilliant DPM, good AA defenses, effectively indestructible turrets and torpedo tubes, and great American smoke. What's not to love about this ship?
