About: Consumables

World of Warships has a consumables system implemented that allows you to improve a ship's abilities in a given area. Every consumable has a Standard and a Premium version that can be obtained with credits or Gold Doubloons.

Premium consumables have a reduced recharge time and have an additional usage. However, they are considered as used whenever a battle starts, regardless if they were actually used in the battle, or not.

Cruisers, destroyers, battleships and aircraft carriers have access to different sets of consumables. The number of slots are linked to the ship type and tier level.

Every ship has at least one consumable slot but can have up to four slots, like the Atago.
