It is getting jungly!

Town Hall 14 has arrived in Clash of Clans with the biggest major update of the year. Players who maxed their bases now have a new world to discover. Common questions like what to upgrade, which troop to go for, the order of unlocking new items, and many others are always in the running. So, to help the players, this guide will help you through everything you need to know about Town Hall 14 in Clash of Clans. This CoC Town Hall 14 Guide includes a discussion of some of the best bases, attack strategies and much more.

Upgrading Town Hall to level 14

Once the players build all the available buildings in Town Hall 13 and maximize their Town Hall to level 5, they become eligible to upgrade their Town Hall. But it is strongly advised to upgrade the defences, troops, spells and all the necessary units before doing so.

Upgrading the Town Hall to level 14 requires 16 million Gold and once started it lasts for 20 days. The upgraded Town Hall will have an increased hit point of 8900 and offer the same storage capacity (2 Million Gold & Elixir and 20,000 Dark Elixir) as Town Hall 13.

Items, Buildings and levels unlocked with CoC Town Hall 14

Upon upgrading the Town Hall to level 14, the player unlocks new levels of buildings, defences, traps, etc. Below are the things that players will unlock after upgrading their Town Hall.

  • 25x new Wall pieces
  • 1x Air Bomb
  • 1x Seeking Air Mine
  • 1x Skeleton Trap
  • 1x Bomb
  • 1x Giant Bomb

The Town Hall 14 also introduces two new buildings: Pet House and Battle Builder Huts.

The Pet House is a building for generating the new units, Pets whereas the Battle Builder Huts are upgraded builder huts that have the ability to defend the village during an attack. Upgrading to the Battle Builder Huts also enables the builders to repair defences during an attack.

Battle Builder Huts will have Turrets as the Builder will repair the damaged defences

Note: The Builder cannot be attacked by any units during an attack.

Clash of Clans Town Hall 14 Guide: Upgrade priorities

After the Town Hall is upgraded, players should have collected enough resources to spend on upgrades.

1. Storages

Storages allow more resources, so they should be upgraded first. Both Gold and Elixir storages can be upgraded to level 15, while the Dark Elixir Storage is upgradeable to level 9.

2. Laboratory

The Laboratory is the most important thing that the players should consider upgrading first. Upgrading it unlocks new troop and spell levels. New troop and spell levels that have arrived with Town Hall 14 update are:

New Troop Levels

  • Level 10 Barbarian (Super Barbarian level 10)
  • Level 10 Archer (Super Archer level 10)
  • Level 10 Wall Breaker (Super Wall Breaker level 10)
  • Level 10 Minion (Super Minion level 10)
  • Level 9 Valkyrie (Super Valkyrie level 9)
  • Level 8 Baby Dragon (Inferno Dragon level 8)
  • Level 7 Healer
  • Level 6 Ice Golem
  • New Spell Levels
  • Level 7 Clone Spell
  • Level 8 Poison Spell

Upgrading units are very essential for attack and farming. So the Laboratory should be upgraded as soon as possible.

3. Clan Castle

Clan Castle is another vital thing that the players should upgrade first. Town Hall 14 grants the Clan Castle upgradeable to level 10 which costs 19,000,000 Gold and lasts for 20 days once started. Level 10 has only increased hitpoints spell capacity to 3 while the rest remains unchanged.

4. Heroes

Players can follow up with upgrading their and Heroes. Heroes do not require to be upgraded in Laboratory so they can be upgraded at any time. Just make sure the builders are free. Heroes have new levels and can be upgraded to the following levels with increased abilities now:

  • Barbarian King Level 80 + Iron Fist Level 16
  • Archer Queen Level 80 + Royal Cloak Level 16
  • Grand Warden Level 55 + Eternal Tome + Life Aura Level 11
  • Royal Champion Level 30 + Seeking Shield Level 6

5. Strengthening the Defence

Side by side players should also keep upgrading their defences. This could be anything from a basic canon to Hidden Tesla. But the players should prioritise their Inferno Tower and the Giga Inferno which is present in the Town Hall. As the two deal massive damage to the enemy. The Giga Inferno will still have five levels of upgrades just as the Town Hall 13.

New defense levels

  • Level 20 Cannon
  • Level 13 Hidden Tesla
  • Level 9 Bomb Tower
  • Level 8 Inferno Tower
  • Level 5 Eagle Artillery
  • Level 3 Scattershot

6. Pet House

As mentioned earlier Pet House is the place from where the Pets can be managed, trained, upgraded and assigned to the Heroes. The Pet House has four levels and each level unlocks a new Pet and each of them has a unique ability of their own.

Four Levels of Pet House that unlock new Pets

  • Level 1 unlocks L.A.S.S.I
  • Level 2 unlocks Electro Owl
  • Level 3 unlocks Mighty Yak
  • Level 4 unlocks Unicorn

So, the Pet House should also be upgraded as it unlocks new Pets having different abilities.

Best CoC Town Hall 14 Strategies

The Town Hall 14 update hasn’t brought up any major change in the defence that needs special attention also no troops have been introduced. Players can therefore follow some of the strategies that were used in the previous Town Hall attacks. But make sure the army troops have been upgraded or the attack might not be effective as the upgraded defences will pick the troops easily.

Here are some popular and most used strategies in Clash of Clans that can guide the players in getting best results in Town Hall 14.

1. Farming/Looting Strategies

At the initial stage after upgrading the Town Hall, the players should focus on farming and upgrading their base entirely. Farming at its simplest form means the players focusing on loot rather than winning trophies. And this strategy is made possible by using cheap and loot specialized troops like Goblin, Miner.

Farming attacks can be distinguished into two types where the first one targets gold and elixir collectors (often placed on the outer layer of the base) and the second one targets the storages and dark elixir (which are often placed in the middle part of the base). Below you can watch some of the strategies and how to execute them in attacks.

Sneaky Goblin Attack

Goblin Attack may not be rewarding at such a higher level due to defences being powerful. Still Goblins can’t be ignored when it comes to loot. Sneaky Goblins are super troops having the ability of dealing more damage to resources (same as Goblins) and additional ability of invisibility for a few seconds after being deployed. Watch the Sneaky Goblin attack on Town Hall 14 below.

Miner Attacks

The ability of Miners to move forward underground makes them a perfect fit for farming attacks. Create a funnel for the miners and once they get to the middle keep them alive using healing spells. Miners can get to the middle and steal dark elixir and also have the potential to take the town hall down.

Balloon And Minion Attacks

Both the units are available at a cheap price and can be trained in a short time. The first wave of Balloons takes out the defences and hence grants the Minions to clear the resources. Since both troops aren’t expensive, this attack becomes a good choice to farm.

Baby Dragon Attacks

Baby Dragons can help in fetching a great amount of loot. The Baby Dragon’s high hit points and rage ability help them to do more damage even when deployed solely. From a distance, they can take out a couple of collectors.

The biggest advantage of this attack is that there’s sometimes no need to deploy all the units. Just deploying some Baby Dragons can fetch a great amount of resources and the strategy can be repeated.

Watch the explanation of these attacks below, even though it isn’t on Town Hall 14 still this strategy can be used to extract loot in Town Hall 14.

Tips for Farming in CoC TH14

  • Decide about what to loot and select armies according to it (if there’s a need for dark elixir, then don’t select troops who consume dark elixir)
  • Use the cheapest units possible, it’ll maximize the loot gained.
  • Farm in a lower league but not very low. At Least try to maintain attacks with 1 lower level lower Town Hall or else it’ll affect the loot.
  • If the base can be cleared, go for it. The Town Hall and the Castle Clan also grant some loot, while this is significantly less as compared to others still it grants some.
  • Eye for inactive bases as they provide the most loot.

2. Trophy Pushing Strategies

Although, it is advised not to go for trophies until the players build a reliable army and base strong enough for defending the village. But if still, the players want to go for trophies they have a couple of attack strategies that can help them.

Hog Attacks

Hog Riders are defence targeting troops. Releasing a mass Hogs from one side of the base clears the path for others units to clear the base.This strategy ensures at least 1-star while the rest depends on the survival of Hog Riders.

Witch And Bowler Attacks

The ability of Witches and Bowlers releasing skeletons/boulders and attacking from a far distance makes them a good choice for attacking. Placing any damage taking troop like Golem, Ice Golem in front of them can allow them to do more damage efficiently.

Balloon And Dragon Attacks

The attacks of Balloons and Dragons have also evolved through time. Both of them can be used independently or combined to form even stronger attacks. A Lava Hound can provide some relaxation but Siege Machines like Battle Blimp or Stone Slammer can also help. But the trend of Dragon and Balloon attacks with clone spells is still working.  Watch the attack below to get some inspiration.

Tips for Trophy Pushing

  • Have at least one reliable army combination before pushing for trophies
  • Attack on bases that’ll grant 3 stars or if Town Hall is on the outer side destroy it first.
  • Always have high-level troops in Clan Castle preferably Electro Dragon and locate the Clan Castle in the middle.
  • Never fall for loot while pushing for a higher league. If unsure about clearing the base, skip it.

3. War Attack Strategies

The players should stay away from wars until they max their defense and troop units. Attacking a Town Hall 14 won’t be easy and if the armies haven’t been upgraded then it becomes hard to clear the base. Below are some war strategies for reference.

Yeti Smash Attack

Yeti has become a vital part of the army in war attacks. With so many variations, Yeti can be combined with troops like Bowler, Pekka, Witch, etc. Learning different types of Yeti attack can prove to be beneficial in wars.

Mass Electro Dragon Attack

Electro Dragons have been one of the most powerful air units in Clash of Clans. And will remain the same for the Town Hall 14 too. Just upgrade them and watch their attacking ability.

Tips for Wars

  • Always use max-level troops in wars and Clan Castle.
  • Prioritize star and attack base that can be cleared first.
  • Never forget the destruction as they’ll play a vital role if the war is tied.
  • Use an anti-3-star base. Below are some of the anti-3-star bases.

No troop is superior or will guarantee a 100% successful attack. In the end, it’s up to the players how they use their troops.
