  • On the right hand side you have the yellow bar, which is your Gold count meter that allows you construct and upgrade the buildings in clash of clans
  • The purple on measures your elixirs which allows you to construct military units as well as upgrade your buildings
  • The final one on the right hand side gauges the number of gems you have. You should use your gems carefully because they are a very important part of the game. The gems are used to speed up the construction of your buildings or turn them in for gold or elixirs. You should use them sparingly unless you are willing to shell out some real money to buy more. The wait times for buildings can be long indeed.


  • At the top of the screen you will find the builder meter which shows you the buildings you can build as well as the ones you already have. You can only have one builder work on one building at a time and you must use your gems to make more builders
  • Next to the build meter is a shield. The shield lets you know how long you have until you are assaulted by other players while in multiplayer mode. You can use the gems to fill your shield and after every attack it automatically gets recharged.
  • Your Experience bar is on the left hand side. You can gain xp by building up your village and getting into fights. You are paired up with other players based on your current level.
  • Right below your level bar is your trophy icon which showcases all the trophies you’ve gained through multiplayer battles.
  • Under the trophy display is the achievements menu. After clicking the icon a list of achievements shows up. If you choose to complete a given task you will be awarded with gems

  • Resource StorageIf you don’t build up your storage capability then will be wasting resources and won’t be able to build up more complex buildings.
  • DefensesThe defensive menu allows you to build up structures that will help you protect your settlement when attacked by other players. The building up of cannons, archery towers, walls and other defenses is the backbone to protecting you village. You must make sure you place these buildings in the right place to get the most out of them.

  • ObstaclesYour village can’t be expanded too much because it is blocked in by obstacles that are scattered throughout the map. If you want to make the encampment all it can be you have to eliminate those objects which will require using either gold or elixir to remove. Just click on them and use up the required resources.
  • Upgrading Buildings
    To upgrade buildings you just have to click on it and use a certain amount of elixir or gold. Make sure to do this a soon as possible as the lowest level buildings are horribly ineffective.

  • Playing solo If you are playing in single player mode the screen on the right shows you all the goblin villages you can attack. You must use the armies you built up at your encampment to destroy the goblin villages which give some gold and elixir you can use to build up your village. In Clash of Clans attacking these goblin villages don’t take away your settlements shield. The goblin village is shown below.

If you manage to destroy the other players’ village you will get chunk of gold and elixir. But remember once you decide to attack someone else you village is open to being attacked too.
