- The Spell Factory allows the player to create spells using Elixir. There are currently 6 permanently in-the-game spells: the Lightning Spell, Healing Spell, Rage Spell, Jump Spell, Freeze Spell and Clone Spell. There was one limited edition holiday-themed spell called the Santa's Surprise that was released around Christmas 2012.
- The Spell Factory takes up a 3x3 space.
- The spells themselves can be used in battle by selecting a previously created spell and clicking on the enemy's village. The spell can be placed anywhere, bypassing walls or buildings, and it cannot be destroyed by any defenses.
- Although multiple instances of a single spell may be created (up to the maximum allowed by the spell storage capacities of the Spell Factory), each spell instance can only be used once. Once you have used a spell, you must create it again in order to use it in your next battle.
- You will not lose your spells if your Spell Factory is destroyed during the defense of your village, nor will its destruction disrupt or pause spell creation in any way.
- If you upgrade the Spell Factory while it is creating a spell, the spell continues building during the upgrade, and will be available as soon as the upgrade completes. It is not possible to start building new spells during the upgrade. If you have any spells already created when you start the upgrade, you will be able to use these in a raid.
- You can speed up the creation of spells with gems and there is also an ability to boost spell production for 1 hour. The boost option costs 5 Gems and will increase the speed of the boosted Spell Factory by a factor of four.
- Note: The boost timer will continue to count down even if you aren't creating spells, so don't boost your Spell Factory until you are ready to use it.
- When you click to boost the Spell Factory a clock appears for a few seconds.
- Players can donate one 2-space Elixir Spell to clanmates, provided that the clanmates have Clan Castle level 7 or higher. Players can also donate the 1-space Freeze Spell to clanmates with Clan Castle level 4 or higher.
- Upgrade Differences
- Spell Factories undergo significant visual changes at each level.
- When initially constructed, the Spell Factory consists of a gray metal cauldron with a valve and handwheel at the front. It is supported by a total of eight wooden legs lashed to the edges of the cauldron, and at the rear there is a slingshot-looking structure used to hold the massive stirring spoon while the Spell Factory is in operation.
- At level 2, the Spell Factory cauldron changes from gray metal to bronze.
- At level 3, the Spell Factory cauldron changes from bronze to gold. The ropes attaching the legs to the cauldron disappear and are replaced with three golden rails encircling the cauldron.
- At level 4, the Spell Factory gains spiked metal armor protecting the four corners of the structure, similar to those found on the Gold Storage.
- At level 5, the Spell Factory gains blue hexagons on the protective pads on each corner.
- When in operation, the Spell being created in the cauldron changes color at each level. Note that this coloring is dependent on the level of Spell Factory only, not on the type of spell being created (it is impossible for anyone other than the owner to determine which spell is being created, except if the Spell Factory is at level 1).
- At level 1, the spell in the cauldron appears azure blue, resembling the Lightning Spell.
- At level 2, the spell in the cauldron appears golden, resembling the Healing Spell.
- At level 3, the spell in the cauldron appears deep purple, resembling the Rage Spell.
- At level 4, the spell in the cauldron appears green, resembling the Jump Spell.
- At level 5, the spell in the cauldron appears light blue, resembling the Clone Spell.
- Spell Factories undergo significant visual changes at each level.
- The level 4 Spell Factory is currently the only level that can unlock two spells at the same time namely the Jump Spell and the Freeze Spell.
- When you begin brewing a Spell, the spiral comes from bottom of the Factory and fills up.
- Despite being "home to veteran wizards", there are no spell making Wizards to be seen. However, the Spell Factory and the Wizard are unlocked at the same Town Hall level (5).
- As of the 1/7/15 Update, players can now queue extra spells in the Factory thus allowing players to "hide" Elixir in their factory. Currently a player can hide a maximum of 194,000 Elixir by queuing 1 level 5 Clone Spell and 5 level 4 Jump Spells in a level 5 Spell Factory if he already has 9/11 spell spaces occupied.
- However, as of the 12/10/16 update, if you do this, you can no longer simultaneously hide Dark Elixir by queuing Dark spells.
- Since there is no spell counterpart of the Army Camp which can hold spells, the Spell Factories takes the role of both creating and holding spells: the Spell Factory determines the main part of spell capacity, while the Dark Spell Factory increases the capacity by 1. For example, you'll have to upgrade the Spell Factory to level 5 (rather than upgrading the Dark Spell Factory) in order to hold 11 Dark Elixir spells.
- Elixir spells' brewing times have been decreased multiple times.
- In 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 October maintenance breaks, players were able to boost their Spell Factory for one Gem only. The 2015 October maintenance break was the first time that this applies to the Dark Spell Factory as well, which wasn't present in previous years.
