Clash of Clans: Top 10 Tips and Cheats You Need to Know

Clash of Clans Tips

Mobile strategy games seem to be the most addictive gaming craze nowadays. Clash of Clans, a free-to-play take on the genre, lets players raid each other’s villages with barbarians, wizards and pissed off dragons. We’re back to aid you in your run to the top of game’s leaderboards. Here’s the top 10 tips and cheats you need to know for Clash of Clans.


1. Know Which Resources to Raid During Multiplayer Battles

Clash of Clans Tips

- During the multiplayer skirmishes you’ll no doubt be a part of, there’s a certain percentage of resources that are obtainable from certain item drills/storage locations:

- 100-percent of whatever’s stored in the Town Hall
– 75-percent of the Dark Elixirs stored in Dark Elixir Drills
– 50-percent of whatever’s stored in the gold/elixir collectors
– 20-percent of whatever’s stored in the gold/elixir storage (up to 198,000)
– 5-percent of the Dark Elixirs stored in the Dark Elixir Storage (up to 2,000)

- The overall available loot is reduced though if your opponent’s Town Hall level is lower than your’s. But if your opponent’s Town Hall level is higher than your level, the loot amount you get for a victory will garner a nice increase.


2. Defend Your Base With a Bunch of Walls

Clash of Clans Tips

- Once you start the game, you’ll have access to wooden walls. These walls come in at a pretty low level (level one), which means they’re not worth much when high-level barbarians come barging into your base.
– Try to upgrade these wooden walls to level three as fast as possible (attain for level four or five if you can, too). These walls will end up being your strongest defense, so make sure you purchase all the available walls within your level. Place these walls all around your base so that no opening pathways are available for entry.
– Let those attackers break down your walls and struggle; don’t let them ease on in without much trouble because you mistakenly left a lane open.


3. The Low Level Trophy Farming Solution

Clash of Clans Farming

The Clash of Clans Help Blogspot page posted this low level trophy farming solution for anyone’s who’s interested:

One of the easiest and laziest ways of farming in clash of clans is by lowering your trophies to under 200 and farming with goblins. The match-making system in clash of clans uses your amount of trophies to find an enemy. When a player is still low level they won’t have a lot of trophies. This way we can use this match-making system to our benefit by lowering our trophies and getting easy opponents. Of course, the loot will be less, so that’s why we’re going to use less troops as well.

Goblins are one of the cheapest troops, and we only need about 20-40 goblins to raid at least 30k gold and elixir from a very badly protected village. As you can see on the picture here, there’s 87k gold and 58k elixir available, while there’s only a level 1 cannon there to protect it! I only had to use 25 goblins to steal all of his gold and elixir. To lower your trophies it’s always very basic. Train goblins only and just start looking for battles, but we’re going to be using a little bug. I wouldn’t call it abusing because we’re just giving away our trophies, and all this little glitch is going to do is speed up the process.

So when you battle, you usually skip a lot of fights until you find the right one. But when you’re dropping trophies you’re going to be using 1 goblin on every village you see, but this would still take a very long time if you had to load your own village after every battle, so here’s a step-by-step explanation of how the ‘glitch’ works:

- Find a match
– Hold your finger on the ‘next’ button
– Drop 1 goblin
– Quickly after deploying release the ‘next’ button


4. Keep Your Trophies Even After Ending A Battle Prematurely

Clash of Clans Tips

- If you’re ready to wave the white flag before the start of a tough raid, just go on ahead and end the battle. You’ll keep your trophies as long as you don’t deploy any troops or cast any spells. Make sure the “Surrender” option isn’t visible, either!


5. Get Some Free Elixirs (And Save Them While You’re Offline)

Clash of Clans Tips

SuperCheats.com offered these cheats for those looking to get (and keep) more elixirs:

Free elixir
This cheat only works when you have less than 30 seconds from finishing a troop upgrade an a full army. About before thirty seconds, cue up the troop you are upgrading. Don’t forget before you do this you have to make sure you have a full army. After the upgrade finishes, untrain the troops. Now, you will get free Elixir!

How to save your elixir when your offline
To be able to save your elixir where people won’t get that much elixir. Just make sure your camps are full and then fill your barracks up with bombers then you can get offline with like only 100,000 elixir instead of 300,000 elixir. Get back on, then unload your barracks first thing and then you will get all of your elixir back.

  1. I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours as of late,
    yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is beautiful value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if
    all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet might be a
    lot more helpful than ever before.

  2. It’s appropriate time to make a few plans for the
    long run and it’s time to be happy. I have read this put up and if I may just I
    wish to counsel you some fascinating things or tips.
    Maybe you could write subsequent articles referring to
    this article. I wish to learn more issues
    about it!

  3. Many die during their first year and the longest recorded
    one to survive is 12 years. Some research workers propose that a guy’s ring finger being longer than his index finger is actually a sign of being subjected to larger levels
    of testosterone in utero. This has in turn, led to the scarcity of proper information in the internet.

  4. I’m now not positive the place you’re getting your information, however great topic.
    I must spend some time learning much more or understanding more.
    Thank you for fantastic information I used to be in search of this info
    for my mission.

  5. I used to be recommended this web site via my cousin. I’m
    now not sure whether this post is written by means of him as no one else recognize such exact about my trouble.
    You’re wonderful! Thanks!

  6. The antioxidant property in green tea has catechins which are known to be effective
    for various infection conditions and the associated
    damage caused by bacteria, etc. Cayenne, a natural phytonutrient derived
    from capsicum, helps support circulation. Green superfoods, for example,
    are often some of the best when it comes to your health.

  7. Hello! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of
    my previous room mate! He always kept talking about this.

    I will forward this article to him. Fairly certain he will have a
    good read. Thanks for sharing!
