Hi Chief, welcome to my strategy guide! This guide is about fixing the rush you have, and if you have problems on fixing your rush, this guide could help you!



Where do we get resources?[]

Resources new update

You can get resources from collectors, such as the Gold Mines and the Elixir Collectors. Also attacking in Multiplayer Battles can get loot along with the Daily Loot Bonus. Resources can also be got from Season Challenges, along with the Season Bank. When you attack Single Player Campaign Maps, you can get loot from it. Participating in Clan Wars and Clan War Leagues can get huge loot because of the Loot Bonus. Nevertheless, Clan Games has a lot of loot when the tier is opened one by one as your clan finished the challenges. Practice Mode is also a good way to get huge amount of loot especially when you need them.



Gems are very useful. They can be obtained from Clan Games, Events, from the Gem Mine and from selling Magic Items. You can also get Gems from clearing Obstacles and completing Achievements. Gems can be used for buying resources, Magic Items from the Trader, instantly finishing any upgrade or Laboratory upgrade, boosting any Collector, Hero, Barracks, Spell Factory, Dark Barracks, Dark Spell Factory and Workshop. They can also be used for buying Hero Skins, buying Builder's Huts and Decorations. Also, it can be used for donating Troops using "Gem Donation", or instantly finish a training or brewing. It is highly recommended to use your gems for buying Builder's Huts to increase the efficiency of the upgrade, and highly not recommended to buy Hero Skins using Gems.

Where do we use our Resources?[]

Resource are used to upgrade Buildings, Troops, Spells and Siege Machines in Laboratory and Heroes. Resources are also used for training Troops, Siege Machines and brewing Spells. Resources can be collected from Elixir Collectors and Gold Mines.



Gold is used for upgrading defenses, Elixir Collectors and Elixir Storages. It is also used for upgrading the Town Hall and the Clan Castle. Some Decorations, such as the National Flags are obtained with Gold. Some Obstacles such as Stones need Gold to be removed as well. Gold is also used for training Siege Machines. Getting Gold is very useful for maxing out Defenses.



What about in the Laboratory? Elixir is used to upgrade Elixir Troops and Elixir Spells! Also, it is used for upgrading Siege Machines. Gold Mines, Gold Storage]s, Dark Elixir Drills and the Dark Elixir Storage needs Elixir to upgrade too! Army Buildings like Army Camps, Barracks and Dark Barracks are also upgraded by Elixir. Also, the Grand Warden is upgraded by Elixir but not Dark Elixir.

Dark Elixir[]

Dark Elixir

Dark Elixir is useful too. Dark Elixir is mainly used for upgrading Heroes, but also for upgrading Dark Elixir Troops and Dark Elixir Spells. It is very good to collect Dark Elixir to upgrade your Heroes. Dark Elixir is a very precious resource.

Start upgrading![]

Builders Hut

You should have about 4 Builders to finish this job quickly. Use two of your Builders to upgrade your storages. Elixir Storages and the Dark Elixir Storage should be upgraded first because rushed people only upgrade their Gold Storages to upgrade their Town Hall. The two Builders left should be upgrading Gold Mines, Elixir Collectors and Dark Elixir Drills. When you have finished maxing out storage or collectors, you may go on and follow the guide to finish your journey of maxing out to base. You may need to gather some other resources to do so.

Scattershot Scattershot2 Throws boulders to wipe out a large group of army, good for large group of Balloons, Dragons and Heroes with the help of the Eagle Artillery Area Splash (Ground & Air) Very Good

Collecting Resources for them[]


Since some of the defenses (like Eagle Artillery or Inferno Tower) need a lot of Gold to upgrade, you may either save them or collect a lot of them from the Season Bank. You may need to stop upgrading defenses with large cost (e.g. X-Bow, Air Defense) and save a lot of Gold for your target defense. You can start over after you have finished upgrading your defense. In my opinion, defenses with high cost should be upgraded first.



Army is one of the most useful thing in attacking. Army includes Elixir Troops, Dark Elixir Troops, Spells, Dark Spells, Siege Machines and Heroes. You can also get Clan Castle reinforcements by requesting in your Clan. You can get 300 housing space of Troops in 4 maxed Army Camps, 11 housing space of Spells, 3 housing space of Siege Machines, and 4 Heroes in a single Army.
