Top 10 CoC Base Upgrade Order Part 1
It’s a common sight that thousands of players try their best to upgrade the base to the maximum level but there’s always something the matter with it. You love the maximum level xbow in your friend’s base and you drop one yourself, but you can never understand how he could do it and why on earth your base doesn’t come up the way you want. The reason is the upgrade order. Unless you spend thousands of gems at once to upgrade everything, it’s always the upgrade order that hinders your upgrades. And there’s no one to blame for that, except your own self. Let us talk about the correct upgrade order that would reward you with the base of your dreams.
1. Upgrade the laboratory
Did you know that the laboratory takes the longest time in your upgrades? You have 5 builders for buildings. And if you can loot continuously you can upgrade walls with just one builder. But there’s only one laboratory, and there’s no shortcut to that. But for those who want to war as soon as possible, I would propose gemming the laboratory and the essential troops. If the price of gems make you hot under the collar consider buying some cheap gems from a reliable gem seller with a good track record. That purchase would be a wise choice without any doubt.
2. Upgrade the Camps
Whether it’s for war, or for looting, you need a strong army. A single archer can be the difference between 2* and 3* as you may have already experienced. Sometimes the demon in your head might tell you that an extra 5 troops wouldn’t make a difference, but trust me, it makes a huge difference. Hence this is the second most important upgrade in the Clash of Clans base upgrade order. Again, spending some cheap gems on this too will be a good choice considering the time it takes for all four camps.
Upgrade your clan castle.
3. Upgrade the Clan Castle
Clan castle helps you use the max troops that you don’t have. A max bowler in your clan castle will clear a huge portion of the enemy base, or a max spell would take your loons to the core of the enemy base which would otherwise be only a dream. This could also be upgraded simultaneously with camps as the clan castle uses gold.
4. Upgrade the Barracks
Unlock all the available troops if they are used in war or multiplayer attacks. But if there’s any troop that’s not used then you may leave it for later times. The important thing is that whatever the troops you unlock, upgrade all four barracks for them. A single barrack takes 12 minutes to cook a dragon while all four barracks would cut that time down to 3 minutes! Spending on gems is much cheaper than what I would have to spend to boost barracks for 12 and a half days for each barrack. All 4 barracks would take 50 days if you go one by one, or the troop cooking will be annoyingly slow if you upgrade multiple barracks at a time. As you are doomed either way, the best choice is to buy cheap gems and save a boat load of trouble.
Upgrade the elixir, gold, and dark elixir mines.
5. Upgrade the Elixir, Gold, and Dark Elixir Mines
Now, this is the most important gem of advice I have ever given the aspiring players on Clash of Clans base upgrade order. And this is the main reason why I decided to write this article. One of the most important upgrades in your base is the resource generators. Let me elaborate on that a little bit more.
Seven maximum level elixir mines would collect 700,000 elixir when full which would take at least 2 multiplayer attacks if you decide to loot them. Even then the troop cost will reduce the profit to 50% of the loot. When you log back in after a few hours, even after an enemy attack you will still get 350,000 elixir and gold if you have maxed up collectors and mines. Furthermore, max collectors are very good bunkers in war which would buy time for your defences to attack the enemy troops.
A maxed dark elixir mine capacity is 1350 in full, and all 3 dark elixir mines would give you 4050 dark elixir! I don’t have to tell you how hard it is to loot that amount in multiplayer attacks. Think of the 1 gem boost events at which you could generate 4 times as much. Imagine what you will be missing if you didn’t upgrade your mines.
The most important thing is that when you have max pumps and mines your upgrades will be much easier. Take my advice and upgrade them, and you will see a huge improvement in your base in a very short time. The other plus point is that you don’t have to spend any gems for this upgrade as you can do without them for the upgrade period.
