How to spend your gold
Purchase Premium vehicles
more than 200 Premium vehicles in World of Tanks
, ranging from Tier II to VIII. They are exclusive vehicles that are different from standard Tech Tree vehicles in a number of ways. First of all, you are not able to research them, but they have to be acquired via the Premium Shop or for a certain amount of gold in-game.
The second important difference is the
increased amount of credits, XP and Crew XP earned
compared to their standard counterparts, which is a great way to speed up your Tech Tree progress or tank crew training.
Train your crew
Speaking of crew training. Gold plays a vital role if you want to
roll out with a team that knows all the ins-and-outs of their vehicle
. While you can change tank crew qualifications for free or for credits, it will always be at the expense of a certain amount of XP, unless you
avoid the penalty with gold
. A well-trained crew can have a significant impact on a battle, so it is worth making sure the men and women inside your tanks are at their peak performance.
Convert Elite XP to Free XP
Elite vehicles and Collectors’ vehicles with Elite status are similar to Premium vehicles but collect Elite XP instead of Combat XP. This
special type of XP can be converted into Free XP
for gold in the top right of your Garage screen, and is a great way to speed up your game progress.
Keep an eye on the portal and use a Free XP conversion special to receive a nice discount and save gold. The discount is usually
Purchase Personal Reserves
Another way to
speed up your research progress, earn more XP, or even credits
in battle is Personal Reserves. They are special boosters that can be activated for a limited amount of time and greatly increase your earnings. You occasionally receive them as a reward for missions and events, and they are available directly in-game for gold.
Purchase Garage and Barracks slots
Researching new vehicles is one thing, but you also need
a place to park your new ride
after you’ve purchased it. While Premium vehicles usually come with their own slot, standard vehicles from the Tech Tree need a designated place in your Garage. There are two ways to make room in your Garage: by selling one of your beloved tanks in your collection to free up a space, or you can grow your collection and
purchase a new Garage slot
Gold is also used to
expand the available bunks in your barracks
. If you want to keep a crew but sell the tank, or if you want to switch a crew from one tank to another, they need a space to put their belongings. The Barracks can get crowded quickly, so make sure to always have spare bunks, or a well-trained team might get dismissed for good.
