Clash of Clans Events

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!

Current Event:

Giant Event

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).

coc event with giantsGiants can be used very nice, from the low Town Hall regions to the top Town Hall regions – I’m TH11 myself and enjoy using them as Golems are always very weak against the Eagle Artillery.

You use them along with Goblin Knife to farm:

or along with Valkyries:

Farming Without Heroes / Low Heroes

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!

  1. Shortly before the event closes, fill up your Barracks by training as many Baby Dragons 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 40 Valkyries for a total of 570 Dark Elixir and then un-train for 5,700 Dark Elixir – making a profit of more than 5,000 Dark Elixir for doing nothing!

    I dont understand why you need to train Baby dragons while its the Valkyrie event. Is it a typo or what? Explain to me why you need to train BB dragons.

  2. Thank you ones again Captain Obvious… Good to know that what we have been doing for months, aslo found it’s way to this little all-add’s homepage 😀

    • LoL…no one asked you. And BTW somethings may not be so obvious to people who have just started playing the game. There is hardly anything to post about the game anyway. {And why did you even visit the website if you know everything I wonder 😉 }

      Good job Tim on the website. Many thanks

  3. Don’t you think the events afe unfair for lower level people who can’t train the prefered troop or can’t request for it. because their CC is cap is low.
    do you think there will be mulitiple events for each player to benifit?

    • I’ve seen lower TH with lower requirements e.g. TH10 required 5 baby dragon, TH9 4 baby dragon, and TH8 were 2 baby dragon which will fit in the clan castle. It doesn’t help that lower TH can’t benefit from farming with the lower troop but they can at least get the 30 gems.

  4. Hey Tim

    Just a question about a statement right near the top of the article.
    You said: “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.”

    What do you exactly mean by this?

    Thanks heaps 🙂

    Also, great work on the website, loving it! Keep it up! 😀
    I’ve been noticing how more and more people are drawn towards clash royale, but I dont understand why. I play the game a bit but coc is tonnes better 🙂 I’ll be reading your content on allclash for years to come hopefully!

    • Yes, I used Disqus so far but they now either charge a monthly fee or include tons of adds and auto affiliate links in the comments.
      I don’t want that so I switched back to the native comment system.
      Hope this is ok for you guys but I really didn’t see any reason to let me blackmail from Disqus like that ?
