Resources are the currencies used to purchase and upgrade assets. The game has six different resources; Gold, Elixir, Dark Elixir, Gems, Builder Gold, and Builder Elixir. These resources have buildings that are used for storing and generating them, except for Gems which has no storage building.

Gold Gold

Gold is a resource that is dug up by the Gold Mines. Once collected, it will be stored in your Gold Storages. The amount of gold you have is displayed at the top right side of the screen. Gold is used to build and upgrade Defensive Buildings, trapsElixir CollectorsElixir Storages, walls and workshop also used to place national flag decorations.

Trivia:

  • During the tutorial, the Goblin King stated that they love gold. However, Goblins also go after Elixir and Dark Elixir.

Elixir Elixir

Elixir is a resource that is collected by Elixir Collectors. Once collected it is stored in your Elixir Storages. The amount of elixir you have is displayed at the top right side of the screen under gold. Elixir is used for purchasing and upgrading troops, Army Buildings, Dark Elixir Storage, Dark Elixir Drills, Gold Mines and Gold Storages. It is also used to place many Decorations.

Trivia:

  • In some animations and commercials, troops are shown drinking Elixir, which is ironic considering the fact that troops are made of Elixir.
  • In fantasies, elixirs are medical potions that cures one's illness. In Clash of Clans, elixirs are resources.
  • The word "Elixir" comes from "al iksir", which is the Arabic word for miracle substances. Dating back to the third century BC, Elixir was rumored to change base metals into gold and prolong life indefinitely.
  • The Elixir is the resource to have more variants, being the Dark Elixir and Builder Elixir.

Dark Elixir Dark Elixir

Dark Elixir is a resource that is collected by Dark Elixir Drills. Once collected it is stored in your Dark Elixir Storage. The amount of dark elixir you have is displayed at the top right side of the screen under elixir. Dark elixir is used for purchasing and upgrading hero class troops aside from the Grand Warden, as well as training and upgrading Dark Elixir Troops.

Trivia:

  • The Dark Elixir was added in January 10 2013 update.
  • The Dark Elixir is the only resource in Home Village that isn't in Clash Royale. However, the Dark Elixir is mentioned from the Bowler's description in Clash Royale, and also being created by Minions, throwing Dark Elixir. It is also the only resource in Home Village not to be in Clash Quest.
  • The Dark Elixir is the only resource to be unlocked once the player reaches to Town Hall 7, as opposed to appearing at the start of the game like Gold, Elixir and Gems.
  • The Dark Elixir is the only Home village resource to be a variant of one of the resources, the Elixir.
  • Unlike Gold and Elixir, the Dark Elixir isn't available in league shop, not counting Gems.
  • According to a tweet by Clash of Clans, Dark Elixir is a renewable clean energy source.
    • This contradicts a post saying Dark Elixir is a form of fossil fuels.

Gems Gem

Gems are a resource that is dug up by the Gem Mines. Gems are a resource primarily gained through in app purchase (IAP). There are other ways to obtain gems, although these methods are rather slow in comparison to purchasing them in the shop. Small numbers of gems can be obtained by clearing rocks and trees from your village, but the rate of re-spawn of trees and bushes is quite low. Completing achievements also awards gems. In addition, the top players in the top three clans receive gems from the weekly tournament. Lastly, Supercell occasionally holds competitions on their Facebook page for which they award gems to the winners.

Gems can be used to purchase all other resources and Builder's Huts. They can also be used to speed up upgrades, gold/elixir collection and to finish troop training.

Generally it's a good idea to save your gems for your Builder's Huts, as having more builders drastically increases the speed at which you can upgrade your village.
