World Of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition – Skills and Perks: An Introduction

You’ve been battling hard, mastering the finer points of combat in a particular vehicle for weeks. After spending so much time playing this vehicle, your Crew has amassed tons of experience and has learned to operate together. Congratulations. Your crew has reached 100% proficiency! You are now ready to train them to become even better. Welcome to Crew Perks and Skills!

When you select a Skill for your Crew, they will begin training on it, much in the same way they did when training on their tank. Once chosen, this Skill becomes effective immediately for your Crew, but you will have to continue to train them in it in order to see the benefits manifest. For example, a Crew with a 10% proficiency at Firefighting will be able to put out fires more quickly than one without the Skill at all; however, at 100% you’ll really be able to see a dramatic difference in how much better they are!

Once your Crew reaches 100% in a Skill, you can choose to train them on an additional one with up to 25 skills total. For more on this subject including a table showing all of the available Skills and Perks you have available to choose from along with their descriptions, check out Wargaming’s the Introduction to Skills and Perks article here.
