Hi, you're watching VisiHow and this is part of our on-going Clash of Clans tutorial. We have an article on how to install the game and get your first village setup. Now, we're going to show you the basic items of the shop when you first start out as a new player. I'll explain each one briefly and let you know which ones are more important, which ones are less important - and how and why.
- 3If you have some money to spend and you want to buy gems - by all means, buy some gems.However bear in mind that, especially in the early game, buying gems is usually a waste. The only time where gems become particular valuable are in the late game or you are in one of the special periods like Christmas where you can do a lot with 1 gem or 10 gems as supposed to the usual several hundred.
- 6These are your decorations.These are all instant. Any of these that you have the money to buy and meet the standard score - you can buy them. Some of them do cost gems, the extra special ones, like the pirate flags. If you are at that point in the game where you have nothing else to do then certainly spend your money on those things otherwise you may want to try to avoid that.
- 8These are our different army things.We have the current maximum army camp. We can build one more barracks which are always a good things to do. The barracks lets you create your troops faster - the faster you get troops, the more you can attack. As you get to a higher level you will get your Archer Queen, your Barbarian King, Dark Barracks - these are other troops that let you do special attacks and special damages.
- 10Defenses protect your village.As you can see we have 1 of 2 cannons, you have an Archer Tower and you have walls - you can get 25 walls. The walls, actually, are not that important. However, what you need to do as you go through the game is improve each thing all the way up through this entire list until you're at the maximum that you can have for that before increasing your Town Hall level. The higher your town level is, the more you can get when you attack - if all the other stuff are high. If all of your other stuff is low and you just maxed out your Town Hall level, you actually receive a penalty when attacking in terms of how much gold and gems you take.
- 12I, personally, never use shields.Some people do. Occasionally they are very cheap. You've got a one-day shield, a two-day shield, and a one-week shield. When you use certain shields, there are cool downs. As you can see there are 5 days cool down on the first one, a 10-day cool down, and a 35-day cool down. When you buy a shield, no one can attack you. You can still attack people but if you attack someone, it breaks the shield. There's no point in buying them unless you plan on not attacking people. Sometimes people choose to buy shields to save gold and build up their defenses. That's entirely up to you.
- 23You need a free builder.As you can see, there's an option for some resource costs. As I said before, if you remove fix objects like stones, they don't come back. Any trees that you remove will come back. Sometimes you can find special bonus like a bag full of gems under a bark of the tree. It's always best to remove your trees and greenery first because those are the ones that would come back.
- 24Thanks for watching VisiHow.Have a great day and we look forward to seeing you in one of our future videos.Advertisement
