Guardian commander skills
Your commander has two types of abilities. First, there are tactical skills that come as a result from months of relentless drilling. They affect multiple friendly units in a positive way.
Second, your commander has developed action skills that are quite unique. They can force the enemy into unfavorable position, cripple it, or affect seriously its ability to fight.
