What is Gold?

Tank Commanders!

As you might have realised by now, World of Tanks Blitz uses three different types of currency: Credits, Gold and Experience (or EXP in short). Credits and EXP are frequently seen and easily understood; after all, they are earned after every battle and spent just as often. But Gold is another matter entirely.
That's why we'll be talking more about the function of Gold in this article.

What is Gold used for?

In World of Tanks Blitz, Gold can be spent on the following activities:

  • activating Premium Account status
  • purchasing Premium tanks
  • expanding the number of Garage Slots you possess (to hold more tanks)
  • converting EXP earned on 'Elite' status tanks to Free EXP
  • exchanging for more credits.

All of this will greatly accelerate your progress in the game, but it should be noted that gold will not provide any direct advantages in battle.

How do I get more Gold?

There are two methods you can use to increase your Gold balance. Firstly, gold can always be purchased for real money within the game client. They are usually offered as a standalone sum or in a package that includes other things (such as a Premium tank for example).

The second method is by taking part in competitions in our official game forums or by participating in our offline events. Needless to say, this is where creative and socially active individuals shine!

An important note about currencies

Although World of Tanks Blitz uses the same Wargaming.net ID system as part of the unified account concept, it is important to note that any Credits, Gold or Free EXP can only be used in the game they were bought for. This means that players will not be able to transfer any of the three currencies between games (e.g. World of Tanks to World of Tanks Blitz and vice versa).

In addition, we would like to remind you that Gold for World of Tanks Blitz can only be purchased within the game itself. All other web resources that offer gold or other similar services are most likely fraudulent and pose as security risks to anyone who attempts to purchase from them.


Now that you understand what gold is and where to get them, we hope that this knowledge will help you to understand and enhance your gameplay experience!
