Haste Spell info

"Put some hustle in even your heaviest units!
Haste Spells lack the damage boost of Rage Spells, but provides an even better boost to movement speed. A lower storage space also allows you to take more of them into battle!"


  • The Haste Spell is the 3rd Dark Elixir Spell unlocked at Dark Spell Factory level 3 that requires the Town Hall to be at level 9. Similar to a Rage Spell, it boosts the movement speed of troops in its area of effect, but to a greater effect; however, the Haste Spell does not increase their damage. The Haste Spell also has a slightly smaller radius than a Rage Spell. Unlike the Rage Spell, the Haste Spell is half the spell space of the Rage Spell.
  • Like with Healing Spells and Rage Spells, the Haste Spell has a reduced effect on Heroes, only granting 50% of its speed boost to them.

Offensive Strategy

  • Haste Spells may be used to counteract the effect of Air Sweepers: Put this on slow air troops and it will counteract the effect of the air sweeper by putting them back into where they were faster.
    • However, if you can destroy air sweepers, it is better to destroy them directly, as it isn't the most consistrnt.
  • The Haste spell is most effective in aiding slower but more powerful troops, such as Balloons, Dragons, Baby Dragons and P.E.K.K.As. It is also effective on troops with abilities that last only temporarily, such as the Rocket Balloon, so that they can make use of the ability against their targets for longer.
    • However, troops with fast movement speed wouldn't benefit much from this, as there is no damage increase. It also doesn't boost attack speed, unlike the Haste Vial.
  • This spell, when paired with the Invisibility Spell, can help to facilitate funneling, since the Haste guides the troops to the funneled area faster.
  • In Zap attacks, where the attacker brings lots of Lightning Spells, the Haste Spell is very important if the troops are slow but strong since the spell is much more efficient at moving troops than other spells.
  • You can also use the Haste Spell at the last seconds of the battle in which your slow troops are away of non-defensive buildings like a Builder's hut, so that they are able to destroy it and get 3 stars.
    • You can also drop the spell before the Giga Bomb explodes, avoiding the death damage, especially if the bomb leaves poison behind.

  • The Rage Spell's name in game files is "haste." The Haste Spell's name, in turn, is "speedup".
  • At its initial level, the Haste Spell has the same movement speed increase as a level 5 Rage Spell. Every level of Haste Spell other than one provides a greater movement speed increase than a max level Rage Spell.
  • Before the July 2015 Update, Balloons were combined with Rage Spells to increase their speed. When the Haste Spell was introduced, LavaLoonion, LaLoon, Balloonion and other variations saw new light, due to the larger speed increase afforded by the Haste Spell and consuming half the housing space of a Rage Spell.
  • For every 1 level the Haste Spell gains, the amount of speed it gains is always increased by 6, and the duration by 5 seconds.
  • Haste Spells do not stack with themselves, or with the speed increase from a Rage Spell (the spell that provides the larger speed boost will grant its speed boost to the affected units).
  • Haste Spell's brewing time has been reduced multiple times, from 15 minutes to 3 minutes.
  • The Haste Spell is one of the two Dark Spells that aren't in Clash Royale, along with the Bat Spell.
