We all know how difficult it can be to not only get your elixir in Clash of Clans, but to just keep it in order to get enough to upgrade a certain building or weapon. I’m not just talking regular elixir either. I am also talking about the dark stuff!
For the reason I just mentioned, I want to share some elixir cheats that help you keep your elixir and build it up faster!
How to Protect Your Elixir in Clash of Clans
First Protection Strategy
The first thing I want to talk about is how to protect your elixir while you are away from your village. There are two very simple ways of doing this. The first is obvious. When you create your village, make sure to place your elixir storage towards the middle of your village surrounded by ground weapons.
This will minimize the chance of an attacker getting to it. Of course if someone completely destroys your village, you are out of luck anyway. But placing your elixir storage here will help!
Second Protection Strategy
The second way of protecting your elixir is not so obvious. Follow the steps below to do so!
Before you go to sleep at night and set Clash of Clans down for a while, make sure that your army camps are completely full like in the image below!
Once they are full, go into your barracks and train as many wall breakers as you can! Do this in every single barracks that you have! Wall breakers take up two housing spaces and cost 2500 elixir after you try to train one of them, you will see a message like below.
So let’s say you can train 55 troops at a time in each one of your barracks. This gives you the opportunity to train 27 wall breakers at once! If you have four barracks, you can train 108 wall breakers over night. But guess what, since your army camps are completely full, the wall breakers do not actually train. Your barracks will just show two explanation points over top of them!
So what does that mean? It means your elixir is safe in your barracks over night! And when you wake up in the morning and want that elixir, you just cancel the training of the wall breakers and the elixir is placed safely back into your storage! Training 108 wall breakers at 2500 elixir each saves you 270,000 elixir that cannot be touched by attacking players! Not really cheating, just being smart! Here is a quick video of my doing it!
How to get a ton of Elixir in Clash of Clans
Get elixir in Clash of Clans can happen one of two ways. You can either make it through your elixir collectors, which pull elixir out of the ground throughout your village. Or you can take it from other players by attacking them.
The elixir collectors are pretty straight forward and there is no way to really cheat with them so obviously I don’t need to talk about how those work or what to do with them! Just collect the elixir when it is ready and it goes to your elixir storage which you should have protected!
However, I do want to talk about maximizing the elixir you get when you attack other players. A great strategy is the first thing you need which you can find here!
Once you have a great strategy in place, getting elixir is easy. First, find an opponent to attack that has a ton of elixir but who is also easy to attack for the most part. Once you find him/her, send your troops in and take everything! The easiest way to do it is to find a village that has not collected their elixir for awhile. Elixir collectors are usually placed on the outsides of villages and are therefore easy to get to without losing to many troops!
