The Tribes
There are three tribes in Travian: Romans, Gauls, and Teutons. Each tribe has its own special advantages and disadvantages. The unit types are also substantially different between tribes. Because of these tribal traits, it is important to choose your tribe wisely at the beginning of the game so that you have one which fits your play style.


The Roman empire is the tribe in Travian which is most easily played by beginners. Because of its high level of social and technological development the Romans are masters at building and its coordination, and their troops are part of the elite in Travian.

They are very balanced and useful in attacks and also in defending. To guarantee this variety the Roman troops are trained very long and their training is expensive. Their infantry is a living legend, but their defense against enemy cavalry isn't as good as that of the other tribes. For beginners and those players, who don't know exactly what they want to play, the Romans are the ideal choice.



The Gauls are the most peaceful of all three tribes in Travian. Their troops are trained for an excellent defense, but their ability to attack can still compete with the other two tribes. The Gauls are born riders, their horses are famous for their speed which allows their riders to hit the enemy exactly where they can cause the most damage and swiftly take care of their confused enemies.

This tribe is very easy to defend, but an aggressive tactic is possible, too. It gives you the opportunity to develop into any possible strategic direction (defensive or aggressive, lone wolf or reliable helper, merchant or plunderer, infantry or cavalry, settler or conqueror), but you need a bit of experience and talent. Nevertheless also a tribe for beginners!



The Teutons are the most aggressive tribe. Their troops are notorious and feared for their rage and frenzy when they attack. They move around as a plundering horde, not even afraid of death.

But they lack the military discipline of the Gauls or Romans, which causes their weaknesses in speed and defense. For aggressive and experienced players the Teutons are an excellent choice!
