Someone check the actual in-game description when he gets the chance. --Ee 10:14, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Anyone know how many uses it has? --Vesmir 21:56, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
From what I can remember, its single use only and you double click it from your inventory. To activate its status, one right clicks their name in the upper corner and can have the option to start of disband the squad. It allows you to mark the map with 3 additional waypoints. From the top of my head they were "attack (something)" which was a white circle with a red X, "defend (something)" which was a silver shield, and a "rally at" waypoint which was a chevron like icon. It also shows up in the effects monitor when enabled on yourself and you can see it on the effects monitor of enemies as well. Here is what it looks like on the enemy and self status effects bar User LiquidWolf Commanderenemy.jpgUser LiquidWolf Commanderself.jpg --LiquidWolf 12:27, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

This item can be bought by Commander Rupple[Trainer] in Divinity's Reach[edit]

In BWE2, my friend bought it in Divinity's Reach, and he can be a Commander in PvE world! We can saw his Commander mark in the map!

What the Icon looks like[edit]

The commander icon looks like this when activated on another and when activated on self, its underlying the players field of view icon/cone.User LiquidWolf Commandericon.jpg --LiquidWolf 18:47, 12 June 2012 (UTC)


The new cost of one is set at 100g now. Guess they dont want too many commanders running out there in the world anymore. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:LiquidWolf (talk).

WOW.......100g!!!!!It will take me like 2 years to get so much money.....lol213.114.118.9 20:16, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
eh, based on bwe3, which was 3 days and 8 gold made, I could probably make it in 2 weeks. No promises, mind, and mileage will vary, but we will see peeps with this before head start ends. —Torrenal 06:24, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
Or you can just buy one with real money... which I would NOT recommend unless your Guild/Clan was desperate to have a Squad Leader and were PvP nuts. SabreWolf

Does this unlock for character or account? 05:01, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

This currently unlocks for the character :( Dargus 02:57, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Over a year later and more PVErs have Commander tag than WvW people. There should be a track for commanders via WvW. Luckily you can buy gems and pay for one. --Life Infusion «T» 01:12, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Catmander's Compendium[edit]

Can anyone check whether buying the Catmander's Compendium first makes this one cheaper? J.Tesla (talk) 11:33, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

Yep. First set of Tag costs 300 gold + 250 badge of honor (no matter if Commander's or Catmander's). Second set will cost 150 gold + 250 badge of honor (the one you didn't purchased yet). Not sure if they'll implement any other extra set of commander tags. --NIN37 07:11, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
