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 are 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.

Unique commanders with talents do not allow themselves to be dismissed.

The special talents of Unique Commanders (if any) will not activate during a Clan Battle or in a Training Room.
The skill enhancements of unique commanders are always effective (when trained for those skills).
