Clash of Clans tips, tricks, and cheats

Clash of Clans: Top 6 tips, hints, and cheats!

Clash of Clans strategy guide: How to work (and cheat!) your way to faster, bigger, and better wins in Clash of the Clans for iOS!

Gird your loins! Collect your elixir! You call that an upgraded wall? Clash of Clans brings the brazen aggression of Scottish warfare to the addictive and simple mechanics of casual gaming. It’s insanely popular, and we’re here to make sure your camp is the toughest to break through, that you're rolling in gold, and that you're climbing the leaderboards.

For those unfamiliar, players in Clash of Clans build forts with gold and elixir resources. Buildings are dragged and dropped however players like, and resources are collected and stored whenever you hop into the game. Over time, they build an army of various troop types. They can be taken on single player missions to raze the villages of nearby goblins, or on raiding parties of neighboring villages. Similarly, other players can raid your town, but don't worry, nothing is permanently destroyed (though they can snatch some of your gold and elixir). Players earn and lose trophies through their multiplayer raids, and band together in clans in order to concentrate their attacks.

It sounds simple, but there's a lot more to it.

Hello, I have found a tool that gave me a lot of gems, gold and elixirs. I really needed that and it was very hard to find it, so that's why I will share it with everyone, so nobody would have to search as much as I did.

Daniel Diffoe says:

Clash of Clans is really my most favourite game. So many of my friends play it but always everytime I hear from them that they struggle at some point about resources. I tell them that easiest way to get them is look at guide like

Juan Anderson says:

renstein says:

The top hint that I have for this game is.... leave your town hall outside your main base. Make it easy to access and obvious that it can be destroyed without the person loosing troops. That way, almost every attack will give you a shield (but cost you trophies). I've used it for a long time, and it works very well. The best part of it is when someone comes along, destroys my town hall with 3 barbarians, leaves me a shield and takes no resources.

Goutham Goud says:

Yes, same thing works for me as well !

Richard Cecil says:

WOW an actual tip! lol I don't understand why anyone would want to cheat; it makes the game pointless.
I just started and I'm definitely going to try putting my town hall outside. Thanks! How long does the shield last?

Killaserpent says:

go to your google playstore and search for the app "appnana" put in the code s1943938, and you will earn nanas for gems for clash of clans. make sure you have 15000 nanas before you enter the code or it will not work. Play around with the app to figure it out.

Jack Neuens says:

hey thanks if you advise me i want coc hack with password reply my comment or share a new comment type my name to make sure i read it

Paul Samson says:

Actually, there's no problem breaking your shields. You can't get attacked while your online, so what's the point of keeping your shield while you're playing. As soon as you get off, you'll get attacked and get a new shield.

Or my profile name is mcl0vin09 (zero in the middle) I been trying to get free gems for like a year now

Nathaniel Brooks says:

My idea is to keep your gold and defenses as high as you can. You should buy defenses and upgrade them as soon as you can. You earn trophies if your base is successfully defended. Therefore if you have a high trophy count, you will earn a larger bonus for successful raids.
