Best time to upgrade Walls?

What is the best time to upgrade Walls?” is a quite popular question but not easy to answer in Clash of Clans. Almost TH8 and below players try to complete their walls to maxed level at every Town Hall level. But is it worthy?

Should I upgrade my Walls now?

As we all know, we can’t use Elixir for upgrading walls until Town Hall 9. Assume you are farming for upgrading walls at Town Hall 8 (or below), besides Gold, you have been earning a lot of Elixir. Maxing all buildings and troops by using Elixir is not a big deal at Town Hall 8 and below so what will you do with the residual Elixir? You will spend Elixir on nothing, your Elixir is always maxed while you are farming Gold, what a waste!

Detailed example: Normally, a player can earn up to 20 millions Elixir If he/she can farm 35 millions Gold. With 35 millions Gold at Town Hall 7, you can upgrade all your walls from level 6 to level 7 and waste 20 millions residual Elixir. With that exact number of loot at Town Hall 9, we can have 25 Lego walls + 25 Skull walls = 50 walls level 7 + 50 walls level 8 + 25 millions Elixir. By doing the same simple operation, If you complete 112 skull walls at TH8, you will waste 37 Elixir instead of having total 37 Lego walls at Town Hall 9.

Additionally, stop farming walls from Town Hall 6 to Town Hall 8 doesn’t make your base be much weaker because attackers need to use 2 Wall Breakers level 5 to break level 6, level 7 and level 8 walls. You can read more at Walls.

Waiting until Town Hall 9 to farm walls is one of the best things! This guide is base on a post of Sservis!

So what do you think about this? Do you have any suggestions or other ideas about this topic? Please share :D.


  1. on my experience on upgrading walls, I always maxed them out before going to next TH upgrade , it’s much easier and not time consuming, as i see my fellow clan mates struggling on wall upgrades they said it’s boring now they are max th8 yet they have pink walls 😀 about the elixir, yes it’s maxing out 😀 but i used it for gianthealer wiz so not a waste 🙂 or drag raid 😀

      • lol I believe that would be for extra elixir, but at my level, when Im just starting all my elixir based upgrades, elixir is very hard to come by. Gold: You don’t use gold for troops. Dark: Bam. Period. I upgraded minions to lv2 and my king 2 times after hearing about it. Elixir: giant biz, which pretty much requires all spells to be invested, is very expensive. Wizards and spells make it cost far too much. And although I might sound like a bad player or something, but because of my methods, I find it VERY hard to find elixir. lol It will be a while till I have lv5 archers. Sidenote, I will never do barch, its boring. lol

          • Well, I guess. I’m gonna upgrade king to lv5, then minions probably, because I really like BAM. Also, I don’t really like hogs that much. I really like Valkyries a lot (for some reason) and golems too. I might upgrade them for holo, but otherwise, they are my last priority. But thx for advice anyhow.

          • Cool! BAM is such an effective farming strategy but IMO Minions are really weak until level 4.
            Good luck so far buddy!
