Tigui is very handy to have if the player is anticipating a late-game raid by the enemy and wants more defensive power to their base. Town Centers upgraded with Tigui can fire off arrows at nearby targets on their own without the need for garrisoned Villagers or the like, allowing for uninterrupted resource gathering, though purchasing it is largely unnecessary if the player already has a solid defense of towers and Castles at the ready.
In essence, a tigui was a master of a Malian house. In real life, they usually took charge of a house, making sure everything ran smoothly. This is represented in the game through the fact that the Town Centers now have a greater individual autonomy and defense, firing arrows without the player needing to garrison units or ring the Town Bell.
