To improve your facilities, like everything else in life, you will need money. This resource in the game comes in the form of four different elements, each with different properties:
- Gold: it is obtained in the mines and once collected and stored, it lets you build and improve buildings, rearm traps, buy ornaments, improve walls, and so on.
- Elixir: obtained through elixir collectors and used to buy and upgrade troops, army buildings, upgrade the dark elixir storehouse, upgrade and buy gold mines, and more.
- Dark Elixir: Dark Elixir is a resource used to purchase and improve the Barbarian King and the Archer Queen. It is also used to train troops in the Dark Barracks.
- Gems: how and where to buy gems for Clash of Clans are the two most asked questions by many users of the game. To acquire them, you have to use the official channels offered by the application and use real money. However, there are other more time-consuming ways to get them, such as completing achievements. They can be used to buy gold, elixir, dark elixir, and the Constructor's Hut; they can also be used to accelerate upgrades and complete troop training.
