For starters, it is a normal game so don’t panic in case you get lost or are totally blank about it in the beginning. Right at the start, you will be given a village of your own.

You can either join a clan or create your own clan. For this, you have to first rebuild the clan castle assigned to you in your village. To do this, you need to gather gems by clearing plants and gem boxes from their base. But only a small number of gems is received each week by any player. In case players want more gems they must pay real money. The sustenance and building of your village (clan) and the purchase of things like faster unit production, instant building completion, and ample of other resources depends on these gems. Hence, you have to use the precious Clash of Clans gems on the right things.

As per the high scorers of the game, these gems must be first used for builder’s huts and then for boosting barracks. However, it would be a waste to consume these gems on resources. Instead, it is better to use the “Complete Now” feature on the Barracks. The other unwise spending of gems would be on ‘Spells’. Why so? Because spells are the only way you can take action during an attack when all your troops are on the battlefield. So when you decide to use Spell, you have to be sure about you have no other option.

It would be wise to avoid upgrading the town hall right away. Go slow on this because the higher your town hall level is, the less loot you earn from raids. Starting matchmaking right away when you need resources with no fear of reprisal would be the best use of your three-day shield. Don’t forget to use the “Next” frequently and focus on the Dark Elixir because these will enable you to choose a perfect base to attack and for upgrades during attacking and defending.
