The Healer is one of many Regular Troops in the Clash of Clans game.

This majestic creature lives to protect and aid her fellow troops. Any army is improved with her healing support, but make sure to protect her from air defenses!


The Healer is a flying unit. She is the only troop with no attacking/offensive capability, but can heal any ground Troops, except when she is defending as a clan castle troop (in which case she heals damaged Clan Castle reinforcement troops and heroes).

When the Healer is deployed, a pulsating circular aura appears around her. If all units have full health, she will start healing the closest Troops (although it will have no effect on the healed Troops). Should a ground troop be damaged by a Defense, she will fly over and start healing.

Note that Healers will not heal flying units (other Healers, Dragons, Balloons, MinionsLava Hounds or itself) unlike a Healing Spell which heals every kind of troop.

Note that Healers will heal Heroes at a reduced rate of only 50% of her normal healing rate; keep this in mind if you want to use Healers with your Heroes.

Healers cannot attack at all. They are completely unable to defend themselves, and will totally ignore any enemy Buildings or Troops attacking them. If they have no target to heal, they will simply remain stationary even if they are taking damage.

Unlike all other troops, healers are measured in (HPS): Heal per second NOT (DPS): Damage per second.

Interesting Facts

In the Chinese language setting of the game, the Healer is called “Angel”, which the unit resembles.

As part of the 23 May 2013 update, Healers had their training costs reduced at all levels. The training time was shortened from 20 minutes to 15 minutes and the required housing space was lowered from 20 to 14.

You can have a maximum of 17 Healers at one time in a complete set of fully upgraded Army Camps. This number increases to 19 if you include the 2 that can fit into a level 5 or higher Clan Castle.

Note: Having this many Healers is highly discouraged as your Troops will have no offensive capabilities unless you bring Clan Castle troops or Heroes.

Although Healers have no favorite target, as of the September 16, 2014 update, Healers now prioritize healing larger groups of Troops.

The Healer requires the least amount of Elixir of any troop to upgrade to maximum level (a total of 5,250,000Elixir from level 1 to 4).

Prior to the September 2014 update, a Healer in a defensive Clan Castle would heal damaged buildings. This is no longer true and she will now only heal Heroes and other Clan Castle Troops when defending; if Heroes and Clan Castle Troops are taken out, she will do nothing for the rest of the defense.

As the Healer has no offensive capabilities, Rage Spells will increase her HPS.

As of the February 24th, 2015 update, Healers no longer trigger Seeking Air Mine.
