A Unique Commander is denoted by star a before the name.
Icon_reward_Crew.png

Unique commanders are a special sub-set of commanders. They perform the same functions as standard commanders, but have additional bonuses or traits that make them different from their freely-recruited counterparts. Unique commanders were typically earned via in-game participation, for instance as a reward for a set of event missions or at the end of a lengthy campaign. Most are now available in the Armory.

A Talent is a unique ability similar to a very powerful skill that activates in unusual circumstances. An WoWs_icon_modernization_special.png Enhanced Skill is a common skill that any commander may have, but with an enhanced effect. The commander must acquire the skill for the effect to be enhanced.

Unique commanders have a star before their names. "Legendary" commanders (those with Talents) are displayed with a gold starIcon_commander_name_unique.png, a gold name, and in the commanders screens, a gold portrait background. Those without Talents are displayed with a white starIcon_commander_name_enhanced.png and a sky blue background. Other commanders have a haze gray background.

"Legendary" commanders do not allow themselves to be dismissed.
Talents will not activate during a Clan Battle or in a Training Room.
