  • Ores are three currencies in the Home Village used to upgrade Hero Equipment.
  • They are obtained once the player is at least Town Hall level 8 and has built the Blacksmith.
  • Ores are divided into three types. Each type is used in upgrades:
    • Shiny Ore Shiny Ore, which is the most abundant type and is used to upgrade Hero Equipment at every level.
    • Glowy Ore Glowy Ore, which is rarer and is used only to upgrade Hero Equipment at every third level.
    • Starry Ore Starry Ore, which is the rarest type and is used only to upgrade Epic Hero Equipment, and even then only at every third level past a certain point.
  • The player's storage capacity of Ores is dependent on the level of their Blacksmith. Upgrading the Blacksmith increases this capacity.

Obtaining Ore[]

There are several ways to earn ore, some of them giving more ore than others.

Star Bonus[]

Completing the Star Bonus while in Bronze League or higher earns both Shiny and Glowy Ore as rewards. Since the April 2024 update, multipliers on Star Bonuses will also affect Ore rewards.

Clan Wars[]

  • Participating in Clan Wars awards Ores when attacking players with Town Hall level 8 or higher. These Ores are awarded after the war ends.
    • Shiny and Glowy Ores can be won from attacking any eligible base.
    • Starry Ores can only be obtained against Town Hall 10 or higher players.
  • Scoring at least one star on the war attack awards the full amount of Ore available from the enemy base to the player's war win bonus. Otherwise, an amount proportional to the percentage dealt in the attack is added instead.
  • The below is a table showing the maximum ore available from each Town Hall level. Losing or drawing the war results in reduced Ore rewards, in the same proportions as with resource loot (namely half for a loss and 4/7ths for a draw).
  • Ore won from Clan Wars is not increased by the War Bonus Extra Loot perk in Clan Perks.

Other Methods[]

  • The Trader can occasionally sell Ores in his shop.
  • Limited-time events might sell ores in the shop (e.g. during the Cookie Rumble event).
  • Ores may be purchased in the in-game Shop (presumably as part of special offers).
  • Ores can also be purchased for Gems directly in the Blacksmith interface, but only to make up deficient amounts when attempting to upgrade equipment. Each Ore commands a fixed Gem cost:
    • 1 Shiny Ore costs 1 Gem;
    • 1 Glowy Ore costs 5 Gems;
    • 1 Starry Ore costs 35 Gems.
