Defense Upgrading: Priority in Clash of Clans Account Pt.1

In upgrading your base, especially after you reached a New Town Hall level, there’s always the big decision what to spend your hard earned resources on. In this post, I want to give you some general rules how you can decide which building you should upgrade next for your Clash of Clans Account.

Things to Upgrade First in your Clash of Clans Account

I will give you a checklist you can use what upgrade will make the most sense for your base. Remember that all of the things in this material are my opinion.

Finding the most valuable upgrade: Defenses in Clash of Clans can get divided into different groups:

  • Single-target Defenses
  • Splash damage Defenses
  • Special Defenses
  • Traps

The first and the most general rule are to upgrade the splash damage before the single target Defenses. Your progress in Clash of Clans is a process and you walk through the different Town Hall and League levels and each one of them has certain styles. And this priority simply comes from that story. In lower Town Hall regions you will need the splash damage most because you’ll get attacked by troops vulnerable to it most of the time – Air Defenses aren’t that important because almost no attack will be airborne.

When you’re Town Hall 10 in the Titan League, however, the splash damage from the Mortars does help you as much as an umbrella in a hurricane.

Clash of Clans Troops and Defensive Balancing

The most important thing to keep in mind is that you want to have a balanced base! When you offer a great vulnerability against a certain type of attack, you can be sure that you get overrun by exactly that kind of attacks – no matter how maxed the other parts of your base are!

When you have decided between two Defenses, pick the splash damage first, unless you have a very rushed TH9+ base.

Also remember that don’t forget to upgrade your Clash of Clans troops for offensive and defensive balancing.
