German unique commander Günther Lütjens

Soon we will be testing a unique German commander, so today we are ready to reveal the current concept of his talents and improved skills:

  • Secondary Armament Expert: after receiving 100 "Secondary hits" ribbons, the reload time of secondary armament is reduced by 15%. Talent can be activated once per battle.
  • Iron Strike: after receiving 140 "Main battery hits" ribbons, the reload time of the main battery is reduced by 7.5%. Talent can be activated once per battle.

  • Exemplary Reconnaissance: after receiving 3 "Spotted " ribbons, the ship's hit points are partially restored. The talent restores 300 hit points per second. Its duration in seconds is equal to the ship's tier (e.g. Tier V = 5 seconds; Tier VI = 6 seconds; etc.). This talent can be activated repeatedly.

  • Air superiority: After receiving 30 "Rocket hits", "Bomb hits", or "Torpedo hits" ribbons, the aircraft restoration time is reduced by 10%. Talent can be activated once per fight.

While working on Günther Lütjens' talents, we wanted to create a commander who would bring something to the table for each class of ships. Therefore, each one of his four talents complements one of our four current classes:

  • "Secondary Armament Expert" will strengthen one of the main advantages of German battleships - a powerful secondary armament.
  • "Iron Strike" will most often be activated on cruisers, giving them a decent increase in rate of fire.
  • "Exemplary Reconnaissance" will prove especially useful to destroyer captains. The ability to recover hit points will increase their combat effectiveness. The scouting/flanking playstyle of destroyers also make it quite easy to earn "Spotted" ribbons in this type of ship.
  • "Air superiority" only works for aircraft carriers.

The new commander also has the following improved skills:

  • Preventive Maintenance: -45% to the risk of modules becoming incapacitated instead of the basic -30%.
  • Expert Marksman: +3 deg/sec to the traverse speed of turrets with a gun caliber up to 139 mm and +1 deg/sec to the traverse speed of turrets with a gun caliber above 139 mm instead of basic +2.5/0.7 deg/sec.
  • Improved Engine Boost: +12.5% to the aircraft engine boost time instead of the basic -10%.

Test ships

The publication with the characteristics of the American Tier X cruiser Puerto Rico contained a small inaccuracy: it was stated that the maximum dispersion of the ship's shells is 206 m, but in fact it is 248 m and the ship was tested with this value.

Please note that the information in the Development Blog is preliminary and subject to change.
