Your Commanders are another very important aspect of your game. Commanders are used in Weirwood, Training Grounds, Rebel Camps, Rebel Leaders, Rebel Groups and player vs player battle both in defensive and attacking situations. In other words almost everywhere. Since Commanders are such a deep subject this section of the site will be broken up into multiple parts. This article is just a basic overview of which commanders are available, when and how to get them and their very basic strengths and weaknesses.
You get a set of 6 commanders by the time you have finished your Weirwood tutorial. Chris, Soren, Sheila, Arslan, Sansa Stark and Robb Stark. You will receive Varys for logging in the second time. When you first start you will also be presented with the Arya quest relatively early on. This is a 7 day quest that gives you actions to complete to get points. At certain numbers of points you are given a chest to open. Getting 100 points will award you with enough medals to take Arya to blue quality. This quest is pretty easy to complete even for free to play players, and I suggest you make every effort to do this!
