Getting the Travian Guals Started on the Right Foot


Guide for Gauls

If you decided to play with the tribe Gauls you probably realized that you need some tips on how to take advantage of the benefits offered by Gauls. Their biggest advantage is in the initial stage of the game. If you didn’t start from the beginning of the server, do not expect a top 50 ranking. You need to take advantage of the benefits the Gauls offer in the beginning of the game, when everyone else has just started as well.

The “Phalanx & Haeduan” Early Game Trick

Advanced players often use gold coins, and later I will explain how much and for what so that you can maximize your gold and make it count for 3-4x it’s worth.

At the beginning of the game upgrade your trappers to the highest possible level so that you can be insured from the other players raiding and stealing your resources.

Who has tried to plunder you in the beginning and you captured his entire army, he must send another attack to liberate the army. Then you capture more of his troops… He will no longer attack.

Your crannies have 2x larger capacity than other nations. All experienced players know that in the beginning of the game they should avoid raiding Gauls. When you have this secured from looting, you can begin to train Phalanx. They are very inexpensive (or in addition to their cheapness, it’s stupid to die for nothing, so train scouts. The attack is not their stronger side, in defending against cavalry are solid, slightly less effective against infantry.

They can’t take many resources, but they are so cheap that you can build them in greater volume. This gives you the real advantage in the beginning of the server, when everyone else’s level is also low like yours.

Start immediately to plunder, primarily inactive players in your neighborhood and immediately from the robbed resources create 2 or 3 more phalanxes. Don’t forget to also upgrade your crop fields so you can support your troops. If you run out of crop, you’ll lose soldiers.

Keep a watchful eye on the crop fields. Production of wheat must be relatively high.

How do you rob resources in relation to that which you need? Well this is where the use of gold comes in handy. The best uses of your gold are:

  • First for the NCP,
  • When you see that your warehouses and silos are full and need to spend down
  • Then more for finishing constructions immediately.

Gauls can build only one resource field or building in the village at a time. From buildings, first rising up are silos and warehouses to the required level, then barracks, and then the stable. For the beginning you are not required high levels of Stable and barracks.

If you want to grow quickly, it is important that there is always something that is being built, and there are always troops that are being trained.

When your resource fields are around levels 5-6, and looting continue to be so good as far, you will explore and begin to train Theutates Thunders (TTs). Then you can follow the questmaster.

It’s time to choose a hero. You can choose between Phalanx, Druid, Haeduan, Theutates Thunder.

For me Haeduan is the best hero for Gaul, he is quite offensive and same the defensive. You can think of it as a hybrid troop. He is very expensive, and consumes a lot of food.

Generally for Gauls, the most important resource is clay. Clay is used for building your army. Fortunately in the beginning of the game, you can use your market or NPC gold trading to acquire it cheaply, since wood is then the most wanted (Highlanders) resource.
