Utilize means "make practical and effective use of"
Hello to everyone. If you would like to be among top ten players in any world, please do read what I have to say.
OK so I would like to share you my knowledge and experience as Travian Player for more then decade now.
I am not the best player but I do have many tips and tricks to tell, specially to new players.
In order to be among top players, you need to utilize everything you have, make use of every ress you can get your hands on.
Let's start by order:
Most resource you get from doing tasks. You need to do task as soon as possible, all of them. That is most important thing to do.
2. Resource production
Build fields like wood and clay, avoid building crop fields even if your crop production is in minus because you will buy crop for cheap over Marketplace all world long. Settle fields with 5 fields of wood or 5 fields of clay. Avoid building iron fields because iron is always cheaper then wood and clay.
This is where you use your advantages. Wood is always most expensive, then clay, then iron third. Crop is always cheapest. Build Marketplace 20 and Trade Office level 10 in each village. Place 50 percent of your merchants to trade for profit. You never have iron or crop in your village so you must always offer wood and clay for iron and crop on marketplace for your profit. While other players build their crop fields to 5 and 10 you have crop fields level 3 but you have wood and clay fields 10 so you always sell your extra resource for double crop or iron. That means every resource field you have built, makes double profit !!
Do not build Marketplace in your Capital and Off City because resource never go out of that villages, only getting in! This is very important because you wont spend resource and buildings slots for marketplace and trade office and every resource will go into resource production or army build.
4. Travian Plus
From all gold advantages, travian plus is most important. You dont even need to activat crop and resource plus production if you have travian plus. Why? Because you build 1000 farm soldiers and Arena level 10 in each of your villages just to gain resource from inactive players. If you play Roman, it is enough to have 1000 legioners in each village just for raids or 500 Druids as Gaul. With that resource gain, you will always have enough resource for build and celebrations.
Are most important then anything. Look at your life. You do not like to work much. You like to party much, have fun. You do not want to wage wars, you want to study and travel around the world, have a lots of friends. Every day you need to celebrate in each of your villages. Taks in start for Large celebration you need to do as soon as possible because with extra 2000 cultural points from TaskMaster, you wiill get advantage over other players. You can build resource fields later in game, village slots are more important cause later in game you will be sorry to look at players who have 2x double population more then you cause they celebrated insted of working. Building Town Hall in supports is far more important then having resource fields level 10. In off city you do not even build resource fields, you build just crop fields because you do not have time to build all buildings in just 6 months!
6. Robber hideouts
Build 1000 troops plus 1 ram just to siege robber hideouts and camps so you loose double less troops to gain resource and tresasure. More treasure you gain for you KIngdom, more crop you will get for selling them! So it is very good to have 1000 troops and 1 ram in each of your villages just for raiding inactive players and to siege robber hideouts and camps.
7. Making new villages
When you make new village, it is best to transfer your Hero to that village as soon as possible, with helm for faster building troops that you plan to build. The faster you make 1000 troops in New Village, more resource you will have. And every new village you make, transfer you Hero to that village to fast build 1000 troops.
8. Taking other villages
It is far better to chief other player village then to build new village from scratch because you will spend far less time. It is not resource that matters in this game, it is time! After 3rd or 4th village, every new village should have residence level 10 academy level 20 rally point level 15 arena level 10.
Get them as soon as possible and place troops in them as much as you can.
10. Have fun!!
