Even as a powerful officer, you cannot run a successful empire alone. You will need the support of talented commanders to enhance your governing abilities. By following the main storyline in Adventure, different commanders will be yours to lead on your way to becoming a legend.
Whether you command the fleets or govern the star systems, you will need the support of talented commanders. In the exploration of the universe, different commanders will come to serve under your flag. They are divided into two main types.
Appoint as governor:
The basic production of local star systems can be effectively increased by appointing a commander as governor. Resources production can be doubled or tripled if the star is governed by high-level commanders.
Appoint as fleet leader:
Each fleet needs a commander to join. The attack and defense capability of space ships will be greatly enhanced after the appointment. The maximum tonnage of the fleet will increase along with the the commander's powers.
In Light of Nova, commanders level up when they have enough EXP. Every level they go up, they earn Potential Points, which can be distributed to one of the following attributes:
Every additional 10 points will increase:
Attack of all troops by 1.
Fighter Armor by 1
Frigate Armor by 2
Cruiser Armor by 3
Battleship Armor by 4
Flagship Armor by 10
- Leadership: Every point added will increase the tonnage cap of the fleet.
- Politics: Every additional point will increase the output of 3 resources by 10. Only effective on star systems with an appointed governor.
1. EXP, Potential Points
Commanders gain experience from battle or EXP potions to upgrade to another level. Every level a commander moves up, he/she will get Potential Points. The higher ranking a commander has, the more potential points he/she will get from the upgrade.
Each commander has four skill lattices, with two of them open by default. You can open seals with Diamonds, then learn new skills by refreshing or replace the old ones. There are three different kinds of skills: Military, Leadership and Politics.
