Gauls are the most peaceful of all three tribes in Travian. Their troops are excellent for players with a defensive style of play, and the Gallic cavalry (including merchants) are the fastest units in the game.

Gauls are excellent at defending, 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).

Also, keep in mind that one of their best attacking troops that needs to be researched is Theutates Thunder. Defender ones are Druidriders, for start.

Troop overview Edit

The Gauls mainly use clay for their troops, but some of them rely on iron, such as the Swordsman and the Haeduan.

Phalanx Edit

Being a simple infantry unit, the Phalanx is relatively cheap and quick to produce.
190px-Falang

Phalanx

His attack power is minimal, but it is in defense that he proves his worth, being effective against infantry as well as cavalry. Although crop-wise speaking, the phalanx's total defence (90/crop) is lower than Praetorian and Spearman. the Phalanx is cheaper, faster to build and more balanced. Phalanx is usually considered the best defensive unit overall when you take into consideration the better balance between infanty and calvary defense in comparison to the Praetorian and Spearman.


RequirementsEdit

Swordsman Edit

Swordsmen are more expensive than the phalanx resource wise, but they are an offensive unit. Defensively, they are quite weak, especially against cavalry. However, since the swordsman is the Gaul's only effective infantry attacker, swordsmen are the main force of any Gallic hammer. They move at a speed of 6 fields per hour and they carry 45 resources each. Physically they are very slim due to daily fitness training.

Requirements

Cumulative requirements, however, include:

Barracks level 3 (for Academy), Main Building level 3 (for Academy), Academy level 3 (for Blacksmith). The stated requirements for troops are often deceptively stated in this way.

Edit

Pathfinder Edit

Izviđač

Pathfinders are the Gaul's spies. They can be sent to scout other villages and they are the fastest scouts among three tribes (17 fields/hour). Like all scouts they are extremely weak defensive and offensive wise


Requirements

Cumulative requirements, however, include:

Barracks level 3 (for Academy), Main Building level 3 (for Academy), Academy level 3 (for Blacksmith or Smithy(t4 onward) ), Academy level 5 (for Stable).

Theutates Thunder Edit

Teutat

The Theutates Thunder (often shortened to TT) is the Gallic light cavalry and raiding force. They are the fastest troops in the game (40% faster than the second fastest attacking cavalry, Equites Imperatoris), and capable of striking swiftly and effectively at far-flung targets. In speed servers, Theutates Thunders can quickly reach anywhere in the game when the Tournament Square is fully upgraded. By then, the Theutates Thunder can travel at 57 squares/hour, allowing them to be sent from any location on the map to another in less than 11 hours.


Although they are not particularly cheap and do not have a large carrying capacity, the Theutates Thunder is still an excellent raider due to his extremely high speed. With this speed, an active Gaul can raid quite often. In late game, when resources (except crop) are abundant and farms are far away, the TT is considered the best raider due to its speed and low crop consumption.

TT's attacking ability is above average, but generally not as good as the Haeduan. Hence, a Gaulic hammer's cavalry tends to consist of Haeduans, rather than Theutates Thunder.

They are not good defenders, though, so they should not be kept home when enemies are knocking on the gates.

Requirements

Cumulative requirements, however, include:

Barracks level 3 (for Academy), Main Building level 3 (for Academy), Academy level 5 (for Stable), Blacksmith or Smithy(T4 onward) level 3 (for Stable) .

Druidrider Edit

Driuid

The Druidrider is a Gaul's mobile infantry defender. The Druidrider is the fastest defensive unit in the game, and is therefore indispensible in protecting an extensive region, especially against slow-moving infantry attacks. He is the second best infantry defender in the game, only losing to the much slower Roman Praetorian in defense/wheat consumption.


Requirements

Cumulative requirements are the same as a Theutates Thunder.

Haeduan Edit

Hudan

The Haeduan is the Gallic heavy cavalry unit, a powerful attacker and also a top-tier anti-cavalry defender. Haeduan can be used to complement with Druidrider to provide mobile defense or serve as the cavalry attacker in Gaul hammer.

Requirements

Cumulative requirements are the same as a Theutates Thunder.




Battering Ram Edit

Ram

Ram

Trebuchet Edit
