What Order should you max your building in?

Hello everyone! This guide will cover what order you should upgrade your towers and walls in. This is important not just to make you better but to also make you look more intimidating to higher attackers.

First off, let's discuss what makes your base look more powerful. The three things I look at when attacking are:

1. Wall levels and layout
2. Wizard Tower and Mortar locations
3. Location of King, Queen and Clan Castle

Walls are hands down the scariest thing to go against. If you are TH8 or 7, look at a few of my layouts and they will set you up with a scary looking base. I personally tend to not attack people who have good wall placements because I know that I will probably not get through them unless I am using hogs, balloons or dragons. Even then though I will take a long look at a base who has higher walls and even skip just because they look intimidating.

Wizard Towers and Mortars are very important as well, especially at the lower levels. When you are below TH6 the Mortar and Wizard Tower are the best defense you have against everyone else, so make sure you have them in the very middle and at their max level.

Location of the King, Queen and CC are also very important if you have them unlocked. This will stop people from attacking you who are raiding with troops like hog riders and balloons if you have the Queen. The three of these should always be located in the center of your base no matter what. They are very powerful up in the higher leagues such as crystal and master and are still effective up at champion league.

Now, lets talk about the order of things. I would also STRONGLY recommend that you max all towers and buildings before going to the next town hall. This is important because of loot deductions at higher town halls.

Here is the order of non-attacking buildings. I will explain it later on:

1. Gold and Elixir storages
2. Army camps
3. Barracks
4. Clan Castle
5. Dark Storage
*** Finish all collectors when you want. I personally recommend doing them whenever you have enough money but it is up to you. ***

The reason for this order is because having the higher troop space is very convenient and allows you to attack stronger bases with more ease. Many people forget to upgrade their barracks. That is by far the biggest mistake you can make in the entire game. Having maxed barracks is great so you can train multiple of whatever troop you want and not have to worry about running out of space in one of them. It also allows you to train more of the higher troops at once. Clan castle should be put in both sections but it is so important that I decided to throw it in there here. When full of archers this thing can be your greatest asset in a defense. I strongly recommend having this thing maxed asap. The storage is the last thing and it doesn't need to be maxed really unless you are working on the highest levels of your troops. Mine is maxed only because I ran out of things to upgrade with elixir. Finally, mines and pumps. They are so nice to have maxed but they do not provide as much as a few good raids. Make sure you upgrade them together because they only go up by 300 per hour each upgrade and they just get more and more expensive to send up. Get them maxed along the way but they need to be maxed by TH7.

Here is the order of attacking buildings and structures:

1. Clan castle
2. Walls - one or two levels below the max for your TH
3. Mortars
4. Wizard towers
5. Cannons
6. Tesla - one level below max
7. Archer Towers
8. Air defenses
9. Max your walls
10. Traps and max your hidden teslas during your TH upgrade

I don't have to explain why this is the perfect order. Do as I say and you will look so powerful it's not even funny.

Thank you for reading this guide and clash on!

Also, if you are above level 40 and are in gold league or higher shoot me an email at [email protected] if you want to join my clan that I own. Very active and donate a lot!

    To me air defense are underrated here. I pay a lot of attention to them when attacking with flying troops. Matter of taste obviously. But 1 for walls, they're expensive as hell, but they're what will discourage most ground troops from attacking really.

    I think you should both upgrade defenses and wall, so it will be better.
    Max wall is very hard, so I think town hall 6 and 7wall lv 6 is ok, town hall 8 and 9 wall lv 7 is ok, then town hall 10 upgrade full.

    Splash, Air def, tesla (highest DPS in game and cheapest to max upgrade), walls, (L7 is really all u will need, any more is a waste until you're ready for masters/champions league since the prevalence of hogs, balloon and dragon based assaults make them ineffective) then towers/cannons. CC should definitely be maxed and placed in the centre or your base, making it hard to lure out defending troops but K and Q placement is not as critical, I find they can actually be more effective on opposite sides of the base to expend attacking troops and kill time while either eliminating them separately or trying to draw them together to be killed. Upgrade as much as you can each and every TH level to maximize your loot bonus, you'll advance faster and easier and have a formidable base by the time you're ready to level up to TH8/9.

    Good except for the clan castle; I think it should be upgraded only after the cannons somewhere because if u dont come on for even 2 DAYS without a shield and someone attacks then u will be attacked atleast twice and in the second battle, well, lets just say the cc would only be like a barraks during defence unless you had something like a pekka or a drag and only ground only troops are used against you.
    Other than that, I think this was a great idea! ★★★

    dont max walls if you are town hall 8 and up; put them to level 7 at town hall 7, let them at this level for town hall 8, try to put them lvl 8 right before getting to town hall 10 and when all your buildings are completely TH10 maxed, then try to put them to lvl 9.

    Yeah, that order doesn't make any sense because at lower levels Wiz Towers are much better than mortars, Also when higher up i find that the most important defense is Hidden Teslas and as you said CC, As they have the element of surprise that you can use to your advantage when defending... Alright guide

    Walls should be done constantly during your time at that town hall with any spare cash u got. I find walls are really good to upgrade when you are focusing your defense upgrades on teslas and air defenses. Clan castle should be done first at th7,8 but not at th9 because it costs 7 mil.
    You forgot to add in de drill for elix upgrades, they are very worthy upgrades.

    Splash damage all the way!

    Nice guide otherwise

    You should also just vary a bit. Doing 3 mortars at the same time weakens your village too much. Clan castle upgrade really depends on if you use it. I do, so I upgrade it really fast, but if you don't use it much why should you upgrade it? You should also upgrade new towers that you unlock to the level the others are, before you do much else. My gold and elixer storages, I don't upgrade them much at all, I've got 5 builders always busy (almost th 8, maxed walls), and farm more gold/elixer than I can handle. Why would I need even more while upgrading it takes time, in which I could also actually get stronger? This might be good for some noobs that really have no idea what they are doing, for better players, this guide is completely useless.

    Hey ElderMage here,
    I completely disagree with everything this guide says...
    One should upgrade their splash damages (Mortar and Wiz Tower) first, then the rest of the defences. Teslas should NOT be upgraded while the TH is being upgraded because teslas can take a long time to upgrade. A lv5 tesla will take 10 days to upgrade (It might finnish around the same time as your th does but you will never get it maxed).

    As for elixir based buildings, the lab would be important as well as the army camps. (I prefer to work on the def buildings first since I don't care about exilir :D).
