In-Game Economy

Battles are not only opportunities to put your skills to the test; they are also your primary source of income. At the end of each battle, you receive an amount of in-game resources that can help you advance further.

In-Game Resources

Credits are the main in-game currency earned in battles. You get credits for all battle activities; victorious battles provide a greater reward. You spend credits when you buy new modules, equipment, and vehicles. Credits are also spent to repair vehicles after battle, purchase Training Manuals and crew directives, and resupply ammunition and consumables.

Experience is an essential in-game resource, which you earn in battles and get for all battle activities.

You can spend your Combat Experience to research new modules of the current vehicle and vehicles of the next tier. Another type of experience is Free Experience, which you can spend to research any module or vehicle (as long as you have researched the preceding module or vehicle).

Bonds is a special in-game currency that is earned in battles, personal missions, certain in-game activities, and via the Referral program. You can use bonds to purchase unique items such as improved equipment, directives and rare vehicles.

Gold is an in-game currency that you buy for real money or receive for completing special missions, such as Bootcamp.

With gold, you can buy days of WoT Premium Account and Premium vehicles. Gold also allows you to convert XP earned in Elite vehicles to Free XP, retrain crew members, buy the Improved Pass and use many other in-game advantages.

Vehicles with all modules and subsequent vehicles researched acquire Elite status. All Premium vehicles are Elite.

Though gold makes your gaming experience more comfortable, you can become a successful commander and explore new vehicles without it. On the other hand, you cannot succeed by simply investing real money in the game.
