What kind of units and buildings are there in the game?
The game offers different units of troops as well as buildings that fulfill different functions.
- Defensive buildings: fulfill the mission of defending the village from enemy attacks. Among them cannon, arcade tower, mortar, airborne controller, wizard tower, defense rocket, tesla tower, wall, trap, crossbow, infernal tower and artillery eagle.
- Resource building: These are the buildings with which the resources (money) are obtained to improve the village, train troops and accelerate and buy other resources. These are gold, elixir, dark elixir and gems. Among these buildings are gold mine, elixir collector, dark elixir extractor, gold warehouse, elixir warehouse, dark elixir warehouse and builder’s hut.
- Army buildings: they train, improve and obtain new troops and military units. They are camp, barracks, dark barracks, laboratory, cauldron of spells, cauldron of dark spell, altar of barbarian king, altar of the queen arquera and altar of the great sentinel.
- Other buildings: are needed to manage different aspects of the clan. They are the town hall, castle of the clan, ornaments and obstacles.
Among the troops we also find different divisions and units within them. Each has a different mission and power. Division 1, 2 and 3 are shock forces, the cheapest in the game but not useless; The key is knowing how to combine them with those of greater strength:
- Division 1: barbarian, archer and goblin.
- Division 2: giant, rompemuros, bombastic balloon and magician.
- Division 3: healer, dragon, P.E.K.K.A., baby dragon and miner.
From here we find units whose powers and attack strength can make the balance in a battle towards our side:
- Dark troops: they are obtained thanks to the dark elixir. You can only train in the dark barracks. They are henchman, mountaineer, valkyrie, golem, witch, lava hound and lanzarrocas.
- Heroes: the most powerful troops. They are immortal and only train once. They can be defeated and then regenerated. They are the barbarian king, the queen arquera and the great sentinel.
- Spells: they are not military forces per se but are spells created in the laboratory. It takes 10 minutes to make. You have lightning spell, healing, fury, jumping, ice, cloning and holy.
Dark spells: these are made in the dark spell cauldron. You have poison spell, earthquake, acceleration and skeletons.
