Get Free Gems

The premium currency in Clash of Clans is gems and it is primarily used to advance the village you build. There are a number of ways you can get free gems. These include getting them naturally by simply playing the game and completing achievements, finding them by removing obstacles such as trees and stones, farming them at the Gem Mine, selling magic items that you get from participatiing in clan wars and taking part in the events that the game frequently hosts.

Don't Waste Gems

Getting gems in Clash of Clans for Android is not easy so it is essential that you put them to good use and not waste them. As a general rule you should only use gems as a last resort or you have an abundance of them.

Free Elixar

A valuable resource in Clash of Clans is Elixar and it is used to upgrade your buildings to make them stronger. Elixar can also be used to unlock abilities and train troops so you can raid bases and gain trophies, to get higher ranked.

Protect your Elixir Overnight

Getting hold of elixir is not easy and you will want to keep it safe overnight. The way to prevent other players from raiding you for it is ensure your camps are at full capacity as doing so will mean the elixar will be 'spent' and will no longer be at risk. Another thing you can do is to cancel the build order so when you next play your elixir will be restored.

Unless ALL the spaces in your village are filled vegetation will respawn every 8 hours abd can be cleared repeatedly to earn Gems.

New Shield

You will automatically recieve a new Shield which will last for 12 hours when your village has been destroyed by an enemy attack.


It is always worth watching replays of attacks by players from your clan on the same target as it enables you to learn a working attack strategy and show you the location of traps.


When you begin the game you will be given a Shield which prevents other players from attacking you for 12 hours. If you attack another player during that time you will lose the shield.

Global Chat

To invite friends via global chat to join your clan you just have to tap a player's message and select 'Invite' from the context menu.

More Stars

The only attack that counts against each opponent is the one that gets the most stars so a good strategy to get more stars is to commnunicate with other players in your clan and spread out attacks to kill all the enemies.


You will find it quicker to blow up walls instead of waiting for troops to destroy them. Blowing up the walls will also mean you will not waste troops innecessarily.

Keeping the game active

I have a way to keep the clash of clans screen active without having to touch the screen. So, normally the game pops up an inactivity warning after about 4 minutes of inactivity. This app briefly take the game, puts it in the background and then brings it back to the foreground. This has an effect of resetting the timeout clock. The app launches a service which can be paused/exited from the notification window. Now since the app keeps the screen on, it is battery intensive, but it really helps to protect your loot in between building troops for farming.... On the google play store it's called AppCycle Pro -- check it out, leave feedback, share requests for improvements.


You can get gems by clearing the trees and rocks in the village.If you need loot just don't play for 2 weeks and open your coc you're loot cart will be full.Wow! Try it

Join a Clan

Join a clan as soon as the clan castle has been built so you are able to coordinate with other players and win goodies from targets that would normally be out of your range.

Save Gems

Resist the temptation of using Gems early in the game to hurry up the process of building and training and instead save them for important purchases.


To be able to invite friends from your Game Center and Facebook they must first have played Clash of Clans and connected to Game Center or Facebook with their account and rebuilt their Clan Castle. When they have done this they will appear in the Friends menu where you can select their name and choose 'Invite' from the context menu.

More Gems

You can always earn a few more Gems by clearing your area of trees, rocks etc. Each obstacle that is removed will return up to six Gems, the average being two Gems. Up to 40 obstacles can appear in your village at the same time.

Village Protection

If you do not have an active shield when you exit the game other players will be able to steal some of your resources. To help prevent this protect your village with defensive buildings, walls and traps or if by buying a new shield from the shop.


Remember when setting up your village that terrain obstacles on the landscape and the edge of the map will not stop other players from attacking you.

Longer Shield

If you feel you need more than the allotted 12 hours to prepare your village you can always purchase a longer lasting shield from the shop.


A good strategy when you build your village is to build all your structures close together so your turrets are able to defend more buildings at once.

Village Defence

After you have built your village take advantage of the ability to re-arrange the buildings to devise the best possilbe defence.


An uprgraded canon can have devestating firepower and be really effective against the enemy, make sure though that you keep it protected from aerial attacks with a tower.
