Clan Castle: Upgrade Cost, Upgrade Time and Max Levels

Clash of Clans: Clan Castle Upgrade Cost and Upgrade Time

The Clan Castle holds significant importance in Clash of Clans as it stands as one of the game’s most important buildings. Initially, it appears as a ruin when players start the game for the first time.

However, at Town Hall 3, players have the ability to rebuild the Clan Castle for 10,000 Elixirs. It can also be rebuilt at Town Hall 2 if a player purchases a resource pack from the shop.

This building serves as a residence for troops that can either be received as donations from clanmates or obtained through the use of Raid Medals.

The troops housed in the Clan Castle play a dual role in both offense and defense. When an enemy attacks a village, the Clan Castle troops emerge to fight the invading troops.

Similarly, during an attack, players can deploy their Clan Castle troops to help in taking down a base. Once these troops perish in battle, players will need to request fresh reinforcements for the Clan Castle.

To request Clan Castle troops, players must either join an existing clan or create their own. Once a player becomes a member of a clan, they gain the ability to seek reinforcements every 20 minutes.

If the clan has a higher level, the cooldown period for requesting reinforcements is significantly reduced.

The Clan Castle also works as a storage facility for resources obtained through Clan Wars, Star Bonus, and Clan Games. This role transforms the Clan Castle into a resource building, making it vulnerable to attacks from Goblins and Super Goblins.

The capacity of the Clan Castle’s treasury varies based on the players’ Town Hall level and level of the clan.

Clan Castle’s Max Levels

The Clan Castle consists of a total of 11 levels, and each level upgrade brings enhancements to its troop capacity, spell capacity, and Siege Machine capacity. Some upgrades focus on increasing one or more of these capacities, while others improve all of them simultaneously.

Additionally, with each level upgrade, the Clan Castle’s hitpoints receive a boost, making it sturdier and better in terms of its damage-taking abilities.

As the Clan Castle advances through the upgrade levels, its appearance undergoes changes, reflecting its growing power. Lastly, it’s noteworthy that the final level of the Clan Castle represents the longest upgrade duration in Clash of Clans.

Clan Castle’s Statistics

The Clan Castle has a trigger radius of 13 tiles, indicating that the Clan Castle troops will remain inside unless an enemy troop approaches within a range of 13 tiles.

Once an enemy troop enters this trigger radius, the Clan Castle troops begin to emerge one by one.

However, if the enemy troop moves outside the range, the troops from the Clan Castle cease to come out until another enemy troop enters the trigger radius again.

By achieving success in Clan Wars, Clan Games, and Raid Weekends, clans can gather Clan XP. As a clan reaches specific milestones in Clan XP, it becomes eligible to receive various perks.

There are a total of 10 levels (with perks), that a clan can progress through, each offering unique advantages.

These perks offer a range of benefits, including but not limited to increased troop levels for donations, a larger treasury for storing resources, and enhanced war bonuses.

Players have the ability to request Clan Castle troops of a specific level.

However, if a higher-level troop is donated to a player whose Town Hall level does not meet the requirements to receive that troop, it will be automatically downgraded to a level that the player can accept.

Here is the level of troops a player can receive in Clan Castle:

Clan Castle LevelDonations Laboratory Level
Donation Laboratory Level shows the level of troops a Clan Castle can request. For example with a Clan Castle level 4 (Town Hall 8), a player can request troops that a level 8 Laboratory offers. A level 8 Laboratory is available at Town Hall 10 which means you can receive Town Hall 10’s troops as Town Hall 8.

Starting from Town Hall 8 and onwards, players have the option to request not only troops but also spells from the Clan Castle once it has been upgraded.

Furthermore, at Town Hall 10 and above, players have the added benefit of being able to receive Siege Machines along with troops and spells. This perk greatly enhances their attack strategies and offers a significant advantage during an attack.

When the Clan Castle reaches its maximum level, players have the option of requesting 50 housing spaces worth of troops. Additionally, they can request 3 spaces for spells and one Siege Machine.

Luring Clan Castle Troops

Clan Castle troops can cause significant damage to your attacking army, potentially leading to a failed attack. However, with the right strategies and techniques, you can successfully lure and neutralize these troops.

By luring CC troops, you gain the advantage of dealing with them separately, reducing their impact on your overall attack strategy.

Analyzing Base Layout

To successfully lure Clan Castle troops, proper preparation is important. Study the base you intend to attack and identify the range of the Clan Castle. This knowledge will help you plan your lure effectively.

Strategies for Luring Clan Castle Troops

There are several effective strategies you can employ to lure Clan Castle troops.

Baiting with Troops: Deploying a few troops near Clan Castle can trigger the defending troops to come out. This method works best with disposable troops like Barbarians or Archers.

Deploying Hog Riders: Hog Riders have the ability to jump over walls, making them ideal for reaching Clan Castle quickly. By sending in Hog Riders, you can lure out and eliminate the defending troops effectively.

Deploying Balloons: Balloons can bypass non-defense buildings allowing them to easily enter the range of Clan Castle. Deploy them strategically to lure and eliminate the defending troops.

Queen Walk Strategy: The famous Queen Walk Strategy is an effective method to draw out and eliminate Clan Castle troops. By deploying your Archer Queen accompanied by a few Healers, you can guide her towards the Clan Castle, enticing and drawing out the enemy troops.

Executing the Lure

Once you’ve chosen a strategy, it’s time to execute the lure. Here’s what you should do:

Lead the defending troops away from the Clan Castle and towards an area where you can engage them without interference. This will prevent the defenses from causing damage to your main troops.

Eliminate the lured troops using appropriate counter units or spells. Focus on neutralizing them quickly to minimize their impact on your attack.

However, if you are using the Queen Walk strategy to lure Clan Castle troops, leading the defending troops away may not be necessary.

In this case, as the enemy troops approach your Archer Queen, you can deploy a Poison Spell to weaken them while simultaneously casting a Rage Spell on the Archer Queen. This will aid in quickly eliminating the Clan Castle troops.


Like any skill in Clash of Clans, luring Clan Castle troops requires practice and refinement. Learn from failed attempts and adapt your strategies accordingly.

Experiment with different luring tactics to find the most effective approach.
