Clash of Clans has started hosting frequent in-game events where you can easily get a lot of extra resources, XP and Gems.
On this page, I will show you all about the current and upcoming events and give you some help to get more out of these events. Some of them only offer XP and Gems, but you can get a lot more out of it with discounted troops and the right strategy.
You can always see the current event, in game, in the news center in Clash of Clans:
Pro Tip! You can actually EARN a lot of resources without even participating in the events. Simply queue up the troop that is on discount before the event ends and then remove them after the event is over. You will get the full price refunded and only 10% investment.
Not having the event troop? Those of you not having unlocked the troop featured int he current event will see a very low number needed to also unlock the gems for the event reward – you can also get it donated into your Clan Castle to participate!
March 25th to March 27th, 2017
The Giant Event reduces the cost to train Giants dramatically and you will be able to gain some Gems and extra XP when completing 3 successful attacks while using a certain amount of Giants (depending on your Town Hall Level).
You use them along with Goblin Knife to farm:
or along with Valkyries:
Shortly before the event closes, fill up your Barracks by training as many Giants as possible in the queue. When the event is over, you can remove them and get a refund at the original price.
This means you can train up to 48 Giants for a total of 19,200 Elixir (depending on what level you got them) and then un-train for 192,000 Elixir – making a profit of more than 170k Elixir for doing nothing!
But be careful! You will only get a refund for troops and spells that are queued in your Barracks/Spell Factories, not for those in your Army Camps!
