First of all: I don't master the english language, so I'm sorry if I say something that doesn't make sense. Civilization VI is all about micromanaging a lot of stuff that drive me crazy. Governor is one of those things. And I don't realise yet how gamechanging they can be. I ask you those questions: What are the Governors do you use more often? Why? What is the first you take? Why? How gamechanging is this mechanic feel to you? Let's talk about the Governor and their title: Reyna the Financier I think she's a really good late Governor. She basicly has 3 uses for me: Money making: Best in a populous coastal city with a City Center / CH / Harbor triangle with the titles Tax Collector and Harbormaster, the bonus gold can be higher with adjacency's cards and can give extra Science with the dedication Free Inquiry. Tourism: Just put her in a city with a lot of Great Work, so with a lot of wonder that have slots. A city with Apanada, Great Library, and the 2-slots Banks and you have 8 Writings with 32 Tourism each, so a lot of early Tourism (8 (base) × 2 (Printing Press) × 2 (Curator) = 32). Instant District: In the endgame, I just have to much money (I propably use it badly). You can basicly settle a endgame city in the middle of the forest, put Reyna there, buy a Spaceport, put Magnus, chop all the wood. Foreign Exchange and Land Acquisition are pretty bad to me. The first one is dependent to enemy willing to send you a Trader to you (so: almost never), and I don't see a difference with Land Acquisition. But I think I just hate how land grabbing work in Civiliation VI. In Civilization V, if there is a ressource in at 3 tiles away from the city, the game doesn't wait that all the tiles in the 2-tiles rings are grabbed. Basicly, I go for Harbormaster and Tax Collector and use her as a passive money maker. I take Curator if I go for a Tourism Victory, or Contractor if I need to instant-build district in the late game. Victor the Castellan I never use him. Only maybe I need a quick Era Score or for the +8 Loyalty. It's a defensive Governors. But if I need him to defend my territory, it's already too late Amani the Diplomat I use her for the +2 Envoy just to have quickly a City-State under my control, or at least, use her as a Loyalty token for my cities. The others titles are pretty bad for me. The level 1 promotions is about loyalty mechanics. If I really need to flip city, I will use Spy to kill Governors and reduce Loyalty, and build EC and go Bread and Circus. But war is a more efficient way. And if I need to protect my city against Loyalty pressure, well I really played bad to need that Title from Amani to protect against that (I can just put her in the city in question). The level 2 Titles are nonsense. Most of the time, I will have her to take control of a City State. So +4 Amenity for my City isn't useful (only if my city is going to flip to have the ecstatic Loyalty?). And if I'm in control of the City-State, I already have a copy of it's Luxury ressources. Puppeteer can be really helpfull to take control of a city-state, but I'm not wasting 2 Titles for it. Magnus the Steward Early gamebreaking Governor, if I want to abuse the chopping mechanics. Groundbreaker allow to have quickly everything and has a really good synergy with the Pantheon Goddess of the Harvest. I usually go for Surplus Logistics and make my Capital a powerful internal trade with Government Plaza (+1 Food/Production). Provision allow to quickly produce Settlers. It's probably powerful but I usually don't go for this, because I don't like to go wide. And conquering is often a good way to go wide. The 3 others titles are pretty bad for me: I almost never have a Industrial Zone so having 2-more of them that overlap on 1 city is uncommon; a city with many Strategic ressources is uncommon and Black Marketeer is garbage: if I don't have the ressource, I have units that can't heal; and I have only 1 ressource, well the city with Encampment is here, or I upgrade the units that I have already built. Moksha the Cardinal What's the point? Even for a Religion Victory, he's bad. Religious pressure take too much time! A Holy city with +50% pressure from Scripture is +6 Pressure, make it 12 with Moksha. You need 200 to convert 1 Population. So a 10 Population city in 10 tiles of the Holy City, Scripture and Moksha will need at least 1000 Pressure to convert, so 83 turns (I must be wrong, because I manage to convert city in less time). Most of the titles are used to defend your religion and not to spread it. And Inquisition is a really powerful unit to protect your religion anyway (make it impossible to win a religion victory with real players). Patron Saint is the only really good one, but, like Amani, I'm not wasting 2 Titles for it. Liang the Surveyor I like her. Not as gamebreaking as Magnus, but has useful tools. +1 charge for Builder is extremly useful, and Aquaculture allow to have a populous coastal city, making a really synergy with Reyna. The City Park isn't that bad in fact. Well, it's a not a tile you will work: it's a selfworking tile! It's useful for Tourism victory for making National Park and Seaside Resort more easily (new growth wood give 1 Appeal only and come late). +1 Amenity is granted automaticly if next to river, and the +1 Culture give +1 Tourism with the adequate technology. Well, you have to 'waste' 1 Title for it (Zoning Commissioner for my, usualy). Pingala the Educator He's basicly a stay-at-home Governor that bost yield of Culture and Science by 15%. I usually go for Grants for double GP points. In the late game, you can use it to make Science victory faster. But that's it. A good and simple Governor. There is a lot of +XX% Production towards buildings. Most of the time, it's not worth to move the Governor for it, and so: waste a Title there. Why lose +15% Culture/Science for 5/10 turns just to save 1 or 2 turns of Production for a building? In fact, only Liang (for Districts) can be useful, because she don't have a passive bonus that will go away. Of course, that's my point of view. I may be wrong (well: I'm pretty sure that I miss some mechanics and you're already screaming at your screen). I'm glad to hear what's your point of view! So basicly, I'm going for: Magnus (Groundbreaker) : Allow to abuse chopping mechanics Magnus (Provision): Allow to have a bunch of Settlers without loosing any Population. I'm not a fan to have a lot of cities, but if I go for it, I will time this Title here. Magnus (Surplus Logistic) : Allow to have powerful internal Trade and make Capital grow quicker. Liang (Surveyor): +1 charge build Amani (Messenger): +2 Envoy, allow to have a city-state under control. May be choosen earlier or later in function of the need of city-state bonuses or not. Pingala (Librarian): Often go to the Capital when I don't need to feed my cities with Trade routes, or a city that I plan to go for Campus/Theatre Square (Capital often has Government Plaza and Commercial Hubs, so not readily suitable for Librarian bonuses). Liang (Aquaculture): Allow to have a really populous coastal city, and for Reyna to show here power in that city. Title only usefull if I can go for a coastal city. Pingala (Connoisseur or Researcher): One "wasted" Title. Depend of what you need. Pingala (Grants): Double the GPP. A really nice passive bonus. Reyna (Land Acquisition): No use of this Title. She tends to go in small city just to maybe make use of her ablity. Reyna (Harbormaster): Go to a Coastal city with the Harbor / CH / City Center triangle, with a lot of Fishery thanks to Liang. May be choosen sooner if Free Inquiry and the city is already there. Reyna (Tax Collector): Free gold, more gold from populous city. Then: Cultural: Reyna (Curator) and Liang (Zoning Commissioner and Parks and Recreation). Reyna (Contractor) is useful too. Science: Pingala (Space Initiative) and Reyna (Contractor). Liang (Zoning Commissioner) can be useful. Religion: Moksha (Bishop, probably Grand Inquisitor, probably Citadel of God, and Patron Saint). Reyna (Contactor) is useful too. Liang (Zoning Commissioner) can be useful. Domination: Reyna (Curator) and recruit Victor and Moksha for Loyalty. Liang (Zoning Commissioner) can be useful. After that: whatever you want. Most of the time, I go for Amani (Puppeteer). Is that a good strategy? What is yours? Even if I think Magnus and Liang more useful, Reyna is my favorite Governor. Mostly because she's a passive Governor that you move around for only 1 thing: buy a district (if you're ready to loose the money or the Tourism). Magnus and Liang, you have to move them so often to optimise the yield of chopping, not loose a population from settler, add +1 charge to a builder, the yield of coastal city, or the appeal of tiles, that in the end, I tend to not move them anymore.
