Clash of Clans Walkthrough and Guide

Search this guide:



Clans are, as the name of the game suggests, a major part of Clash of Clans. You can easily go through the game never joining one, but once you have repaired the Clan Castle for 40,000 Gold, this option opens up and it is one that is worth exploring.

Once in a Clan, players combine their trophies and fight against other Clans to get the most. These are collated and Clans are placed on a leaderboard based on the Clan's trophy total. Once in a Clan you also have a private chat, and are able to donate troops between each other.

Each Clan has three ranks of player within it: Leader, Elder, and Member. Both the Leader and Elder have the ability to accept and decline Clan invites, while the Leader is also able to demote themselves to Elder and pick a new Clan boss. Many Clans have a certain number of trophies that you should have to be able to join. Once you reach that number, you will be able to send a join request.

TIP: To join a Clan, you can look it up and select the Join button (if it is set so that anyone can join). You can also send a request to join a particular Clan if their status is set to invite only. You could join a friend's Clan, or hang around on the global chat or game forums (like Supercheats!) looking for people recruiting Clan members.

See the Defenses section for more information on the Clan Castle.

In the new update, dropping donated troops refers to the Clan Wars. You can't drop the troops donated to you when you select donate on the Clan Castle. You can only drop troops donated to your War Base.

Hi coc mates. I'm an Aussie & in the last week in April, 2014. Who is is annoyed at the price rise in buying gems. I know you can hack, but im not into doing the wrong thing. To buy 14,000 gems is now $130..but in the US its $99. I'm asking anyone who thinks this is just greedy developers. Yes & i know. Don't buy them, then. I suggest not to buy & boycott against this until they have reasonable price. By the way they make 2.4 million a DAY. Any positive thoughts please.
