You need to know to upgrade your Clash Of Clans base as fast as possible and this post is all about it.
Welcome back to TutorGaming guys. It's great to have you.
I have played Clash Of Clans for 4 to 5 years and within that time have gained an extensive knowledge on how to upgrade your base as efficiently as possible.
The first tip which might seem pretty obvious is to keep your builders working but let's explain the logistics of that because it can be pretty difficult. What you need to make sure is that as soon as one of your builders finishes, you instantly start another upgrade. This is where builder management comes into play so if we take a look at my six builders. Yes you can get six builders, i will talk about the best way to do so in this post because it is super important.
I have a couple of power tips for you at the end of the post but i do want to keep on track as we move through the different sections so that you understand the synchronization of the builder management, the magic items, your available loot as a player because whilst this post will be super helpful upgrading through the levels from point A to point B as fast as possible.
I do want to acknowledge that some of you might not attack multiple times per day so just take away whatever tips you can in order to keep those builders working. They are there to build my friends whilst i am saying that your priority should be any magic items that help with time of upgrades.
I want to get to the next tip but if you cannot farm enough resources fast enough to keep your builders working for whatever reason people play the game differently then you switch your focus to the loot for me. You should buy Gold Pass or different Packs that provides you Ruin of everything that'll fill your resources instantly.
I now have an abundance of books that actually it's the loot i should focus on because hopefully from this section of the post, you have taken this message away.
It is about keeping your builders working however you need to do that. Yes it's great if you can have the magic items to just speed up time but ultimately if your builders are sitting doing nothing then it's not as efficient.
Let's tell you how to get the sixth builder as fast as possible then because whilst one of my power tips at the end does involve builder management. It is trying to keep information succinct but in-depth enough to help all of you whether you do or do not prefer the builder base. You do need to play it in order to unlock the sixth builder but listen it's not as bad as you think.
You have to get to build a Builder hall 9, then unlock the O.T.T.O hut and complete a bunch of challenges but there's a little secret about the builder base. You should only build the buildings required to actually upgrade to build a Builder hall 9 but then put all of your loot everything into the O.T.T.O tasks. You can leave the other buildings at level 1, if you wished. THIS is because unlike the home village, you should rush the builder base. I will talk about strategic rushing later on in the Post.
The reason you rush in the builder base is, there is no matchmaking. It is all about the trophy count. You could be a builder hall 9 and your opponent a builder hall 3 and if you have the same trophies you will be matched against eachother. Therefore, there is zero disadvantage because the amount of loot you gain per attack is based on your trophies, the higher trophies the more loot you gain. So if you are stronger offensively you are going to push higher up the trophies, gain more loot so rush the builder base and just upgrade what is needed for the O.T.T.O tasks. I don't want to give you the impression that you're going to be able to do this in a couple of days because you're not. IT is still a bit of a grind but it is so worth it. I have a Post on getting 6 Builder as fast as possible.
You can check out - Secret Tips to Get 6 Builder Fast in Clash of Clans
Once you've unlocked the 6th builder, you can send the master builder to the Home Village as your sixth builder.
What are the upgrade priorities then, what should you upgrade first in order to progress as fast as possible ?
This differs slightly on whether you are rushing or not and it will nicely segue into the strategic rushing section but in general they are pretty much the same. Heroes are a big factor here but i do want to mention that particularly higher level the resource collectors are hugely important so that you gain more loot passively as well as these storages so that you can hold more loot with farming but get better value from the rooms.
In terms of the heroes, you always want to try and keep them upgrading for the main fact that they tend to take the longest out of everything. Generally it doesn't matter on the Town hall it tends to take the longest and i think it's because other than the Grand warden, they all take dark elixir and there is a little bit of a knack of upgrading the heroes as well.
I would strongly recommend not upgrading heroes during the clan war league. Let alone you are not able to help your Clan as much since you can't use the heroes. The amount of medals you gain is based on the stars you achieve within your clan's particular league.
The league medals are so important that you can purchase not only the hammers, you can't get these anywhere else but even the builder potions, research potions sometime, even the loot so that you can get an upgrade going is massively helpful for your progress, so you need as many medals as possible.
Here's my thing about the heroes, if you could upgrade all four heroes at the same time, you are super active with your farming. You can manage your build as well go for it but you probably can't do that. You might choose to upgrade them in levels of five though because that is when you get an extra ability level. Dark elixir gets very expensive at every town hall, but what you need to make sure is that they are available for war presumably that you want to win.
So some people will focus on one or maybe two heroes at a time in order to manage the timers better and make sure that when you opt into a war they are going to be available since upgrading the heroes is such a big deal.
The book of heroes inside the daily deals at 500 gems is one of the only items i recommend from the trader. Interestingly the other item i recommend is the training potion. I think they are the two best values so this is a perfect demonstration for you.
I did mention though strategic rushing and it is something that i want to briefly discuss because if your goal is purely to go to maxed Town hall 14 as fast as possible then rushing is actually the quickest. I'm not going to go into all of the pros and cons but you should know that if you rush you can get better value out of your magic items. You can actually gain more loot passively and actively because you will be stronger on offense. IT means you can get better value from the clan war league medal shop. There's a lot of positives but i actually don't recommend rushing on your main account.
It's not that it's super negative. It's just that you need to know what to upgrade first and you also gain different skill sets from different Town hall levels and if you haven't gained that from your main account and you rush incorrectly, it can end up having a negative effect for you and your clan in war. IT can impact the gaming experience that you have as well though. I personally don't find it as enjoyable to rush but i know some people that just want to unlock the new content.
But if you do choose to rush you have to focus on your offensive power that is heroes, army camps, clan castle. Make sure that you're upgrading set armies within the lab. You want one farming army and one war army upgraded to maximum level. This means that at least you have a strong army to fall back on after this you can slowly upgrade your base evenly. Once you have that offensive power. Before i go through all of the power tips, i want to mention the gold pass because whilst not everybody spends money on the game for five dollars a month it brings you so much value. The best value you could get from any purchases, not to mention the magic items, the loot from the season bank, the perks it is such good value and there's a couple of tips i have for you.
I've mentioned this quite often but at the start of the season, do not spend your season bank loot until you have got to the 10 builder boost, it's normally around about 120 points and you can pretty easily get it with completing one or two of the challenges with 50 million in gold and elixir for the season bank that is huge but also at the end of the season. Remember this is where your perks are at their highest so you want to utilise that And the first power tip:
- Always try and use your ruines when your storages are virtually empty.
Just make sure that you actually do then use the full storage resources.
In relation to Gems, people play the game differently. Some people will gem upgrades and that's fine but it really isn't the best value. If you want the best value from your gems, do not finish upgrade times at first. You always want to save your gems. You get a lot of free gems out of the game so even if you decide not to purchase them, you will be able to get the five builders but make sure you save every scrap of gem whether it's from the rewards in your profile, whether it's from the bushes that you remove around the base, save all of them for the five builders.
Following that i've already mentioned the training potion and book of heroes are the best value. If for whatever reason you have an abundance of gems, you can also purchase the research potion and the builder potion from the traders. Those are the second best deals because that will help you upgrade your base. The only time that i will use gems to finish an upgrade is if it has less than an hour left and i'm going to be offline overnight. I will gem that so that i can start another building upgrade.
I want to give you a quick tip on the league shop that the hammer of heroes is a great choice and it is if you just want your heroes available for war. But if you just want to focus on your troops upgrades then hammer of fighting is also the best value. It is 45 league medals cheaper and one thing i haven't really mentioned is the lab because it goes without saying just as with the builders, you want to keep the lab upgrading all of the time and the dark elixir troops can be just as expensive as the heroes and even take longer. Meaning you're getting better value for the hammer of fighting so long as you can manage your hero timers for war but if you can best use, case in terms of upgrading fastest is the hammer of fighting.
I talked at the start of the video about the builder potion use and the research potion used for that matter, if you are using the potion make sure that whatever it is speeding up does not finish upgrading whilst the potion is still active unless you can get something instantly upgrading afterwards, Otherwise you're not getting the best value from the potion.
A neat little trick you can do with the builder portion that you can't do with the research potion because the builder potion only speeds up 10 times faster this is because it works on all builders so it actually gives you better value in my opinion than the research portion. But anyways you can use the builder potion to reset the timing of your builders if you want the best efficiency of upgrades.
You do not want an upgrade to finish in the middle of the night when you are sleeping because you want to start another upgrade. This means that the builder potion can save 9 hours off of an upgrade in order to reset when the builders will finish. This is so long as you still have most of your builders working otherwise you're actually getting less value from the builder potion. It just means that you can be online to start that next upgrade.
A quick power tip in terms of builder management- You need a system that works for you to keep a track of when the builders will finish. Personally i just have a quick look at the builder tab every day i log in and i can see when the builders will finish but i do know some people that find it helpful to set events on their phone to keep track of builders.
There's also apps and websites such as the clash ninja upgrade tracker where you can input your data and ultimately it keeps the track for you. So try experimenting and find a system that works for you.
