I made a thread some few months back, asking on what were the best things to spend gold on, as a new player who hasn't committed to buying gold just yet. If I remember correctly, the answers were NPC Trader and the Premium Bonuses, as long as I'm buying for the entire round rather than piecemeal.
Now, among the Premium Bonuses, which are Travian Plus, Resource Bonus and Crop Bonus, which one should invest in first?
Learning about Travian is frustrating. In other MMORTSes, I quickly reached a level of high proficiency by interacting with the experienced players and the veterans. I was eager to learn and they were happy to teach me. The community in Travian: Kingdoms seems a lot smaller though, and I meet only very few players with experience, in the game itself.
