We've done a Top 8 clash of clan tips
Tip # 1 of Clash of Clans. Save your jewels
When you start playing Clash off Clans, you start with 500 gems. At the end of the tutorial, you end up losing almost 50 gems, completing the structures instantly as instructed by our tutorial. If you save your gems, you can add extra builders at a faster rate.
Here are the costs for each builder:
Builder 2: 250 gems (you add this during the tutorial)
Builder 3: 500 gems
Builder 4: 1000 gems
Builder 5: 2000 gems
While builders 4 and 5 are a long way off, builder 3 is achievable relatively fast if you save your gems. Extra builders allow you to build more buildings at one time and as a result they are very useful. With the new Clan War achievements and a trophy push, you can unlock Builder 4 within a few months of play without having to buy anything. The 5th builder will require a big trophy push (for the Champion's League) or more time to unlock some of the other achievements.
Tip # 2 of Clash of Clans. Use cheap units
One of the biggest mistakes new players make is not considering the cost of the units they use to fight. While giants are great, they also cost far more to use than the barbarians. At higher levels, dragons are large, but cost much more to use than the giants. There is also the time factor to consider. While Wizards are stronger than Archers, they not only cost more, and each Assistant requires 8 minutes. Meanwhile, you can create 4 Archers in less than two minutes (Wizards are a 4-source unit).
As a result, when your primary goal is to save resources, you need to make an effort to use cheap units that are quick to produce. The best units, depends on your level of City Hall.
Tip # 3 of Clash of Clans. Only use spells when necessary
Like units, spells are very expensive and take some time to produce. While they can be quite effective, you need to make sure that the battle you are fighting warrants the use of such a spell.
You should know that the spell of fury begins at 23,000 elixir and the healing spell starts at 15,000 elixir; Each time you use these spells, you need to make sure that using the spell will allow you to gain at least an additional 15k or 23k features (depending on the spell).
Tip # 4 of Clash of Clans. Slowly update your city hall
The City Hall "Penalty of service" is one of the most important things to know about Clash of Clans, but it is not a publicly announced feature in the game. It is not even mentioned during the tutorial or anywhere in the game, however it is extremely important in the game.
This penalty reduces the amount of loot you can get from enemies if your Town Hall is a higher level than your opponent's Town Hall. If your Town Hall is a higher level than your enemy, you will only be able to steal 90% of the normal amount available for looting. If your City Hall is two levels higher, you will only be able to steal 50% of the serve. For three levels, only 25%, and for 4 levels or more, only 5% of the total available loot. The penalty is reflected in "available draw" - you do not have to do any calculations on your own.
As a result, we recommend you to reach Level 4 of the City Hall and then stay in this range while you maximize your defensive structures, army camps and your search. You can even maximize off your walls for extra credit before moving to City Hall 5. Repeat this process for each level.
Tip # 5 of Clash of Clans. Start Matchmaking early
When you start playing Clash of Clans, you get a three-day shield. However, thanks to the serve penalty (mentioned in tip # 4), very few players will want to attack you, even if you drop your shield. As a result, you can start matchmaking immediately when you need resources without fear of reprisal. You can jump and search for a base with exposed resource collectors and use a handful of barbarians, Goblins or archers to attack them.
Even if you are attacked, low-level City Hall players have very little to lose. You will only lose a few features that can be more than offset by a single attack.
Tip # 6 of Clash of Clans. Use the "next" feature Often
When cultivating resources or trophies, you should always be jumping around with the "next" button in order to find the perfect base to attack. It only costs a little gold to jump to the next base, so make sure you have a good base before you spend all of your units attacking one. Also, be careful to never spend all the last piece of gold you have on an upgrade - you need to save some gold in order to be able to use the "next" to ability to continue farming!
Tip # 7 of Clash of Clans. Place the clan castle in the center of your base
The Clan Castle is perhaps the best defensive structure in Clash of Clans, but only if you put it in the center of your base. The way the structure works is that when enemy units enter the Clan Castle range (it has a very long range), the units will dump from Clan Castle and attack enemy units of attack. Note that your Clan Castle troops are capable of jumping on their own walls.
If you put the Clan Castle out of its base, the enemy can simply lure the units within the Clan Castle and easily kill them out of reach of their towers. If you keep Clan Castle within your base, the enemy will have to take damage from your Clan Castle units as well as their defensive structures in order to take out their base.
Generally, it is best to ask Archers to keep in your City Hall for defensive purposes. This works great because archers often shoot melee units behind their walls, allowing them to knock down giants and barbarians without suffering damage. Players of very high level can choose different units, like Dragons or Golems, but this requires a clan where the members will donate these troops.
Note that this tip really only applies to players in City Hall 7 or above. In the earlier levels of Town Hall, you do not have enough buildings to actually prevent the enemy from luring out units in your clan castle. Town Hall 7 units may still be attracted but it is more difficult. In Town Hall 8 and even the enemy will have to destroy some buildings or a decent number of units to force the troops out of their Clan Castle.
Tip # 8 of Clash of Clans. Focus on Dark elixir
Once you reach Town Hall 7 and beyond, your limiting feature will always be the Dark Elixir. Through normal play, you will usually maximize all gold and elixir-based upgrades long before you acquire enough Dark Elixir to maximize your heroes and gloomy barracks. As a result, you need to put a priority on Dark Elixir above all other features, saving your spells and hero units for when you stand to gain a large chunk of Dark Elixir.
