The Haste Spell is the third Dark Spell in Clash of Clans, and you can unlock it at Town Hall 9 once your Dark Spell Factory reaches level 3. This spell is quite similar to the Rage Spell but with a key difference: it boosts the speed of your units within its range without increasing their damage.
It’s important to understand that the Haste Spell only increases movement speed and cannot improve a troop’s attack rate. However, it can help your troops reach their targets faster, potentially leading to an early first attack.
Haste Spell vs. Rage Spell
The Haste Spell has a smaller range compared to the Rage Spell. Specifically, its radius spans 4 tiles, whereas the Rage Spell covers 5 tiles, making the Haste Spell a bit trickier to use.
Regarding their durations, the Haste Spell, at its maximum level (level 5), lasts for a longer 30 seconds, while the Rage Spell only remains active for 18 seconds—quite a significant difference in favor of the Haste Spell.
Another distinction is the housing slot requirement in the Spell Factory. The Rage Spell demands two housing slots, whereas the Haste Spell needs just one.
Additionally, the speed boost provided by the Haste Spell is fairly greater than that of the Rage Spell. When fully upgraded, the Haste Spell provides a speed increase of 52, while the maxed-out Rage Spell offers a speed increase of 30.
Despite these advantages of the Haste Spell, the Rage Spell compensates for its limitations with damage and attack rate improvements.
As a result, the Rage Spell maintains its popularity across all Town Hall levels, while the Haste Spell tends to be less favored in higher-level Town Halls and is rarely used in attack strategies.
Haste Spell’s Max Levels
The Haste Spell consists of five levels in total. Since it falls under the category of Dark Spells, you’ll need Dark Elixirs to upgrade it. As you progress through the levels of the Haste Spell, you’ll notice improvements in two key stats: speed increase and duration.
Speed increase refers to the number of points by which the spell increases a troop’s speed, helping them move faster. Meanwhile, duration indicates how long the Haste Spell remains active on the map, influencing your troops’ speed for the specified period.
Here is the list of max levels of Haste Spell:
- Max level of Haste Spell at Town Hall 9 is level 2.
- Max level of Haste Spell at Town Hall 10 is level 4.
- Max level of Haste Spell at Town Hall 11 is level 5.
Haste Spell can be maxed out at Town Hall 11 which means it has no new upgrade levels at Town Hall 12, 13, 14, and 15.
