I would, probably, pay for pack of “auto-flights”, so you don’t need to destroy the beasts again and again to mine all gold, when you have elite. E.g. flight once, then press " repeat", “repeat”, …, which instantly will do the same action. Similarly in some events, like Temple Raid - you destroy the final base once by each evolution of dragon, then all subsequent temples use auto-pilot.
Basically, any action which should be repeated again and again just kill the mood, and the thing with atlas mines and 20 flights to get all gold is the main thing that hold me from taking monthly elite - each time after week of atlas elite I feel tired (no, leaving some gold in mines, and not going till x5 is not an alternative). So, I would pay for time saving.
