  • If you want to take my opinion the easiest tribe to play is Roman if you are a non gold user if you wish to play the game for the entire server. Growing without gold will become a pain if you play as teutons and gauls once you are past the initial few villages as you cannot queue upgrades without gold and this will really hurt you a lot in the long run. Yes you can earn gold with selling items but you better save them for important uses like NPC or resource bonus. Also let me know how much time you can dedicate to game and do you plan to play as offensive player or defensive player. Are you okay with being a mediocre or you plan to be a top rung player.

  • hi guys, i just started playing the game with a couple of friends and i'm kind of at a loss with what to choose (tribe + strategy ).

    does anyone have an uptodate guide (legion ) for viable and good strategies for non gold players ?




    Well, take a look at the upper videos.


    For myself i prefer Romans, because i'm used to play with. But Gauls seems pretty nice as well.

  • I don't think theres any specific guide for non-gold players but as someone who has played without gold for a long time I can tell you a few things from my experience


    1. The best tribe to play non gold is roman. Romans can simultaneously upgrade a building and a resource field, while other tribes can only upgrade 1 without plus account. Roman troops are the most balanced out of all the tribes as well. You can also choose gaul, but I would recommend you not to choose teutons.

    2. Settle for a 9c over a 15c. Since you wont be able to NPC trade, it would take you a long time to develop a 15c, specially if its far away.

    3. Playing defensive is easier when playing without gold, as you wont be able to raid often and wont have to worry about someone killing your hammer while you sleep.

    4. Use a pouch/bag of thief. Go for villages with lots of cranny capacity (6k or above) and farm them. A month into the server you'd be able to raid as much as 200k

    Pouch of the thief, how does it work?

    read this for to understand more about pouch of thief.

    5. Sell expensive items like artwork and useless armours to stack up silver. You can later convert it to gold and buy res bonuses. It would be important in mid game when you start to run out of crop


    Hope this helps

  • 6. Participate in contests on forum where you can win some gold (it must be valid on the domain you play)

  • All said above is true. Add that Roman def is probably the most boring style to play in travian and useless if you don't have alliance members close by.

    But tell us your experience so far pedrocevil4  :)

  • 7. Your aim should be to become a low gold user by applying the above tips. (and keep + ressources running as much as possible + buy gold club) A lot of stuff is worth much in the beginning.

    8. You should probably start on day 2 or 3 on the server so you have the space to develope near starter

    9. I Would suggest a 7c HD with very good oases, since you will even struggle to develope a 9c without gold

    10. Your troops are limited by your total crop income if you don't raid, therefore I suggest only one troop village (maybe 2 if you get the hang of it). Use trading routes to supply the troop village.

    11. Go in the best available alliance in your sector.

  • 9. I would suggest a c9 though, focus on troops + wood/clay/iron fields to lvl 14 first (but c7 having 3x oasis with 100%+ crop is ok as well)

    +

    storage to 560k / 320k and keep crop production positive.


    Once crop fields are 11/12 and you have saved up gold from item sales raise the crop fields using the saved gold. Raising fields 13>18 only costs 54 gold



    This suits best for romans as they have extra building to be queud so you can raise fields + storage same time.
