An important feature of Clash of Clans is the available units to help you execute your defensive and offensive strategies.
You need elixir to create barracks. Although expensive units can dominate the battle arena, most players would opt for the unit with less cost and preparation time. Hence, they will likely continue to use the barracks until they have gathered enough elixir and progressed to advanced levels.
Here are the different units available in the barracks:
The Barbarian is the first character that you can unlock. He displays a furious expression to signify his desire for a battle. His attire includes leather belt, brown kilt, spiked wristbands, and sandals.
Using Barbarian troops can overcome your enemies in the battlefield. They are effective defensive unit in the first five levels of Town Hall. Nevertheless, they are still valuable protective shields against attack of vulnerable units in the advanced levels.
Archers are the female fighters having keen eyes. They can inflict substantial damage to your opponents because of their remarkable skill and incredible speed. The drawback of this character is her fragile health resulting in less chances of surviving an attack.
Gathering resources from the closest collector drill, mine and storage building or farming is the primary role of Goblins. At the early levels, Goblins appear to be relatively weak with poor health.
Equipped with great speed, they can avoid baits and complete missions swiftly. Goblins gain significant powers as you upgrade the character from level four to six.
Giants possess a very low speed level, but aims for the defensive structures, including the Hidden Tesla towers. Their predictable movements make them vulnerable to Spring Traps. Therefore, it is advisable to deploy Barbarians, Archers or Goblins before you position them to attack.
Targeting walls is the primary role of Wall Breakers. Despite their remarkable speed, the Wall Breakers have low health level, making them susceptible to attack. The recommended strategy is to send other units, which will divert your enemy while it completes the task.
Clash of Clans top tier units
The Balloon is an effective air defense against Cannons and Mortars. However, this unit cannot move fast making it defenseless against Air Defense Towers. They are weak unit from level one to four, but become a beneficial character in level five due to health and damage upgrades available. In level six, they are already potent forces, which can bring destruction to your enemies.
Healers are air units providing instant cure to its target area. They will only offer healing to ground troops and not with other flying units. The usual strategy for Healers is to send Giants and Wall Breakers to defeat an Air Defense Tower. Pairing it with the Giants is an ideal technique to break defensive structures.
Wizards are similar to Archers in the way they launch their attacks. It needs units such as Barbarians or Giants to prolong its chances of survival. Withstanding about four to five hits from Mortars and Wizard Towers makes it an upgraded version of the Archers.
Dragons are one of the greatest fighters. They can cause serious damage to both air and ground troops. Dragons and Lightning Spells can devastate even the highly secured base.
P.E.K.K.As are one of the most effective ground units. To take advantage of its power, you need to send Archers and Wall Breakers to wipe out the perimeter of your opponent’s base. They are ideal for acquiring trophies, but not for farming activities.
But do all of these matter when you have the unlimited gems provided by the Clash of Clans hack? I think they do, because even if you have unlimited soldiers, tactics still matter if you don’t want to waste all your time on a single base.
