Experience as displayed on the village screen. (Located on the top left of your device’s screen.)
How Experience is Earned
In Clash of Clans you earn experience from the following methods:
- Donating Troops;
- Building and upgrading Structures;
- Completing Achievements;
- Destroying an opponent’s Town Hall;
- Destroying a Goblin’s Town Hall in the Single Player Campaign;
- Clearing Obstacles.
When donating Troops to your clanmates, you get 1 experience point per housing space donated. For instance, if you donate a Barbarian, you get 1 point because it fills one housing space. If you donate a P.E.K.K.A, you will get 25 points because it fills 25 housing spaces.
You do not get experience for donating troops to War Bases, nor do they count towards your “Friend in Need” Achievement. This is because that could be exploited easily as players could have donated troops to another player, and with collaboration with that player, could remove the troops, and the player could then again donate troops to get more experience, and repeat that over and over again.
Building and Upgrading Structures
Most players gain the majority of their experience by building and upgrading village Buildings. The amount of experience earned is directly related to the amount of time the construction takes. The longer the build time, the more experience you earn when the building is completed.
To determine how much experience you will gain from upgrading a particular Building, you need to convert the building’s build time into seconds, take the square root of that number, and round down.
For example, a level 1 Cannon takes 1 minute to build. 1 minute = 60 seconds. The square root of 60 is 7.746, rounded down is 7. Therefore, a level 1 Cannon will grant 7 once completed. Currently the most you can earn for a single upgrade is 1,099, which occurs with the level 3 and 4 X-Bow, the level 8 Hidden Tesla, the level 3 Inferno Tower, the level 6 Clan Castle and the level 10 Town Hall.
Possible Build Times and Experience Gained for Each
|Build/Upgrade Time||Build/Upgrade Time, secs||Experience|
For completing Achievements are given 10, 50,100, 500 or 1000.
Destroying an Opponent’s Town Hall
Similar to multiplayer mode, destroying a Goblin’s Town Hall in the Single Player Campaign also gives experience.
In Clash of Clans, Obstacles are trees and rocks that can be cleared for a small fee (usually ranging from 100 to 10,000 or 100–20,000) if you have a Builder available. In addition to having the chance to give you 0-6, Obstacles also give experience when cleared. The amount of experience they give is worked out exactly the same as with Buildings: you take the square root of the amount of time in seconds to remove the Obstacle and round down.
The following table lists all of the possible lengths of time for clearing an Obstacle and the amount of experience you earn.
|Clearing Time||10 secs||15 secs||20 secs||30 secs||45 secs||60 secs|
Earning Experience Quickly
If you wish to increase your level quickly, the fastest way to do so is through Troop donation. Below are two tables listing the experience you can gain from training Troops and donating them as soon as they are trained. 2 hours was used because it makes numbers come out roughly even and it is the length of time that a boost lasts. Regular Troops and Dark Troops are separated because they use different Barracks.
Note that the values in these tables are for a single Barracks. Multiply the appropriate column by the number of boosted or unboosted Barracks you have.
|Troop||Training Time in Secs||XP per Donation||XP per 2 Hours||XP per Boosted 2 Hours|
