Summary

  • The Workshop is a building that constructs Siege Machines, which are special weapons that carry Clan Castle troops. Siege Machines cost Gold to build, but are upgraded using Elixir. The Workshop is unlocked at Town Hall level 12.
  • The Workshop is unable to function when being upgraded; since a player can only have one Workshop at a time, this disables Siege Machine production while the Workshop is being upgraded (though any Siege Machines being built when the upgrade is started will continue being built at the normal rate, and will be available as soon as they are completed).
  • You can boost Siege Machine production using Gems; this costs 30 Gems and speeds up Siege Machine construction by a factor of four for one hour. A Training Potion can be used to boost the Workshop similarly.
  • The Workshop, like the Spell Factory, holds the items built within (in this case, the Workshop holds constructed Siege Machines). However, even though multiple can be kept in the Workshop at once, only one Siege Machine can be used per battle.
  • You do not lose constructed Siege Machines if the Workshop is destroyed during battle; the Workshop's destruction also will not hinder Siege Machine construction in any way.
  • Siege Machines can be donated to players with Clan Castle level 6 or higher.

Upgrade Differences

  • When initially constructed, the Workshop has several features; one of which is a red-roofed hut with a similar shape to that of a Builder's Hut. On top of this hut is a crane with a wooden jib, a metal hook, and a stone counterweight. Beside the hut is a crate with an unfolded blueprint of a battering ram, a likely reference to the Workshop's ability to build the Wall Wrecker. Behind the hut, there is a small pile of wood. A single white dotted rectangle is present in the surrounding grass at one corner, which stations a Siege Machine when they are built.
  • When upgraded to level 2, the pile of wood behind the hut is built into a wooden platform, with two red balloons attached to the corner of this platform. the Wall Wrecker blueprint is now presumably rolled up and placed to the side; in its place is a blueprint of an airship, signifying the Workshop's ability to build the Battle Blimp.
  • When upgraded to level 3, a large boulder appears in place of the wooden platform, like the boulder of a Scattershot. A third red balloon is added, and the crane's jib is reinforced with metal. The blueprint of the Battle Blimp is again presumably rolled up and placed to the side, while the blueprint of the Wall Wrecker has fallen down to the floor, with a new blueprint of a hot air balloon visible, signifying the Workshop's ability to build the Stone Slammer.
  • When upgraded to level 4, a box appears in place of the wooden platform. The piece of metal on the crane's jib is replaced with a slightly larger and darker piece, which now has a single spike protruding from it. The blueprint of a box with a parachute is placed over the balloon blueprint, meaning the Workshop is now able to build the fourth Siege Machine: the Siege Barracks.
  • When upgraded to level 5, the box is removed and spiked logs take its place. The piece of metal on the crane's jib is replaced again, and is now gold with a black spike. The blueprint of a vehicle filled with logs is placed over the barracks blueprint, meaning the workshop is now able to build the fifth siege machine: the Log Launcher.

Trivia

  • Its appearance could be inspired by the Builder's Workshop, the Arena 6 in Clash Royale. This Arena has a "siege" theme, as it unlocks the Clash Royale counterparts of the Mortar and the X-Bow, which can directly attack the opponent's towers.
  • Since the unlocked Siege Machines at level 4 and 5 are ground units, the quantities of the balloons on the Workshop at the relevant level does not increase.
