Well, to do anything on Anno you need to earn some money. So start fighting...you'll earn from fight bonuses and collect slaves. I usually sell the slaves (for 0.03 or 0.04 gold) after capturing them, but you can also hold them if you want. (If you try to do that, remember to collect the slave bonus from the state each day). Next you should try to work. I'm not sure if there are many jobs in Bulgaria at this time -- it's still one of the emerging countries on Anno -- however they will come eventually. When I started there wasn't much job choice in the USA either, but now we have many companies competing for labor. A Once you have money, you can buy things to increase your wellness or invest in gold, euros, shares, bank deposits, etc. Increasing your wellness increases your earnings throughout the game while investing can give you other ways to earn.

echomonster: Thank you for very helpful answer! I do not understand only what is the way to increase my wellness. I start work. There are two works available at the moment, but I think it is better to work in the night. In the day you have to fight. I like the bonus that I will receive from my slaves. I will try to collect 20-30 slaves, but I will receive 10% only from my bonus, but it worth for beginners. I will try this with bank too. Cherry Shares is interesting site, but the only thing that stops me is the $50 minimum deposit there, but if I have $50 in surplus, I will try it. How can I return a favor for this information?

Yes, it is very big taxes. For now I have to gather 40 BGN to exchange for 1 gold, and I will restore my loses. I can buy shares only with euro. How much shares you have? I do not know what to do. Everything is very expensive. I just log in, fight, take my bonuses and do not gather enought money to rent a house for 1 day. I check this Region and change my region with our capital and tonight work in this company which you have sherys there. - Eurowood Corporation BG. May be I have to invest 5 euro and buy shares in one company at first, but I do not see in which company they sell, only the number of shares that they sell. For now I will only collect money and exchange it in euro to buy shares. How to decide which shares are better?

Hey San. Unfortunately, consuming goods is the only way to increase your wellness in Anno. Wellness does decrease over time which is the main reason I think houses are the best way to keep your wellness up -- they give you a bonus every day that offsets the amount you naturally lose by fighting, traveling, and just existing. Of course you can't get more than 25 wellness points per day from houses so you will need other goods as well. In time businesses will be established and there will be more stuff available in India. What you are currently experiencing is exactly what most of the countries in Anno are like right now. You could try to travel to another country to buy goods (you'll need to convert your rupees to gold so you could later get local currency), but the travel times you'd face would be horrible as you'd need to go to a country like Romania, USA, or Hungary. And you can't work in another country so earning money overseas would be difficult.
