|Fast Upgrade Barbarian King, Archer Queen, Grand Warden & Royal Champion
This post is your ultimate guide for upgrading your heroes fast. I will be honing in more on the dark elixir heroes but i will be giving you some tailored advice for town hall 11 with the grand warden and town hall 13 with the royal champion. But i've researched a lot for this post. I've split it up into different sections via Table of Contents. Initially going over general tips: How you should prioritise the upgrades then we will go over bases strategies and pro tips at the end.
Dark Elixir Tips
Starting out with a few general tips. Many of these might be basic for a lot of you but it is important you get this part right, before we start talking about strategies to use and bases to use.
|Priorities Dark Elixir
First and foremost you need to prioritise dark elixir. The heroes other than the grand warden are dark elixir based and i think the question gets asked about upgrading heroes fast because dark elixir is a tough resource to get so for that reason, when you hit a new town hall level you want to upgrade the dark elixir drills to that max level. I know you don't get the loot from them during their upgrade time but it is definitely worth it in the long run.

|Trophy Range for Dark Elixir Farming
I personally like to farm in titan one to practice for war there's tons of dark elixir so crystal and above is the recommendation.
DE Farm Bases
|Dark Elixir Farming Base
For your base design, it goes back to prioritising dark elixir. It should be centrally focused difficult to get to. You can either build a base, copy one of your friends or I have links for you in the other posts. But I would recommend reading ing the next section on how to farm dark elixir first before you copy it. There's base link (Dark elixir farming base) for town hall 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13. You're welcome to copy them but let's get to how to farm dark elixir for each of the town hall levels!
TH7-8 Strategy: Barch
TH9 Strategy: Goblin Knife
For town hall 9, there are two main popular dark elixir farming strategies.
|Goblin Knife attack strategy
The second is my favorite but I figured, I would teach you both of them and you can select your favorite. Firstly though we have the goblin knife this involves creating a loot funnel on the outside of the base by taking out all of the collectors then you provide direct access to the dark elixir storage for your mass goblins. You can mix other troops into the army composition such as giants to tank splash damages particularly if both of your heroes are upgrading.

You can also take wall breakers but I like to take two jump spells to ensure I have access to the dark elixir storage, use a rage spell over the top of it. Your main aim is to get the goblins to the storage, take it down and then you're done.
TH9-10 Strategy: Loonion
The second dark elixir farming army for town hall 9 is the Loonion this is my personal favorite because it's easier to use in town hall 10 as well.
|Loonion attack strategy
The downside is that you do need to spend some dark elixir on minions which for goblin knife you don't. Send a line of balloons in first, followed by the minions and you're using four rage spells. Two initially you're prioritising the wizard towers and then as the balloons get to the center of the base, you're using your next two rage spells.

This means that the balloons are raged over the core and it also means any minions that get to the town hall and dark elixir storage are also raged. If you do have heroes you can use them on the back end, in order to tank wizard towers or maybe even pop off any other collectors.
But the good thing about this strategy is it's very basic. You just send a line of balloons, send a line of minions with the rages and you don't need your heroes for it whilst you can continue to use Loonion at town hall 10 or other strategies.
TH10 and Above: Miners
|Mass Miner attack strategy
A mass Miner attack particularly for town hall 11 and above, this would be my recommendation. Now there are variations to this depending on what heroes you have up but use your heroes that are active to help set the funnel then send the miners in a line from one side of the base you will choose this depending on a couple of factors which we will talk about.
|Easy Dark Elixir Farming for Fast Upgrade Heroes
Use your heal spells early i like to use three in a line with then two in the center if you have the grand warden's ability, use the ability early as well protect as many miners as possible and this means you can get in towards the storage in the center of the base. Make sure you don't miss the collectors, if they're full. If you can enter from the town hall side, the town hall is a storage so you still get loot from that but it also means it secures the victory. Miners are very powerful, they will keep you in your desired trophy range and it means that you're not using any dark elixir. This is a full elixir army which is very important when you're prioritising dark elixir, you want to be using an elixir-based army.
|Mass Miner OP
The miners are incredibly strong. It will allow you to get the storage rates higher up. If you have your queen active i would recommend a queen charge into miners. It's an even stronger attack and it lets you practice for war.
TH11 and Above: Sneaky Goblins
|Sneaky Goblin: Best Troop for Fast and Easy Loot
For higher town hall such as Town hall 13 or 14, best way to farm dark elixir is to use sneaky goblins with 3-4 Jump spells and Rage/Haste spells. Well sneaky goblins can be unlocked from Town hall 11 so you can use it from Town hall 11 to 14. Also they're very easy to use even without any hero support and fastest troops to farm dark elixir.
A couple of other top tips to finish off the post. The first tip I want to give you is that, if you are planning on upgrading one of your heroes (the King/Queen) and you're in the middle of a boost. Do not start the upgrade as soon as you get enough dark elixir. Let's say you have 30 minutes left on your boost it's not worth it to have the hero finished 30 minutes earlier you're far better off to continue farming with your hero for that extra 30 minutes. Because likely it will help you to get more dark elixir which is definitely more beneficial in the long run when you're getting to the end of the boost and you're going to be upgrading the hero.
Just know that for the final attack you no longer have to worry about preserving the health which you normally would to use on the next attack or use on defense. You're going to be upgrading the hero so just let it take as much damage as necessary to help you out. Also as you are farming always be on the lookout for free dark elixir snipes.
|Snipe Free Loot and also Maintain Trophy
Sometimes people put their storages to the outside of the base to try and gain trophies. If you're farming dark elixir, you don't care about that take the free dark elixir. Sometimes if you get too high up in the trophy leagues and you need to drop to get to your desired level, you can actually search for bases like this as you are dropping and gain a whole ton of dark elixir.
|Gold Pass helps to Upgrade Heroes Fast
Two other little tips, if you're considering anything to purchase to help speed up your progress. The gold pass is 100% the best value, not just because of all of the perks you get which is value in itself but also the seasonal bank can give you 250,000 dark elixir each and every month extra that's an entire hero upgrade.
|Season Bank Loot to Upgrade 1-2 Heroes
Maybe even more than that depending on your level because you tend to get a book of heroes as well.
|Builder Potion: Best for Low lvl Heroes Upgrade
Now for the Clan War League medals, i did a whole separate post breaking down a rewards guide.
If you are a town hall 8 and below, for your heroes I would recommend the builder portion. Your king really doesn't take too long at that level. The dark elixir is not enough to warrant going to the hammers. Builder potion is the best benefit for town hall 9. And above always know you have the hammer of heroes.
|Hammer of Heroes: Best for High lvl Heroes Upgrade
Now the hammer works differently to the book in that you don't have to spend the dark elixir and it will instantly upgrade the hero. It adds one level to your hero but also be cautious that sometimes the hammer of fighting might be the better option if you are struggling to get enough dark elixir to upgrade the heroes because the hammer of fighting doesn't cost as much medals and you can upgrade the dark elixir troops in the lab. You don't have to worry about using your dark elixir on the lab, just for heroes.
So i hope you have enjoyed this one if you've any questions, comments down below! You guys have a good day and i will see you in the next one ;
