"The Clan Castle houses your Treasury and any reinforcement troops or spells sent by your clanmates."

1Clan Castle is a required building for creating and joining a clan.

All villages already have a Clan Castle when a new account is created, but it is in ruins and can be rebuilt when you reach Town Hall level 3.

This building houses troops provided by your clan to defend your village or attack. The Treasury is located on this building as well.

Requesting Troops

The biggest feature and most common use of the Clan Castle is to house donated troops.

All clan members can fill the Clan Castle with troops donated from the clanmates. This request shows up on the clan chat and must be completed by clanmates.

These troops can be used on attacks or to defend your village.

Players receive experience points for donations on requested on the clan chat. You get 1 point to each housing space donated. For example, a Golem will reward you with 30 experience points. Spells will give you 5 experience points and Siege Machines 30. You don't get experience by donating on Clan War and Clan War League maps.

The donation limit is based on the level of your Clan Perks. Once you reach clan level 8 you can donate up to 8 troops. Once you reach Clan level 3 you will also get a partial refund of the resources spend training the donations.

Upgrading Your Clan Castle

Upgrading the Clan Castle increases its housing spaces, adding 5 units on each new level. Starting on level 4 you can request spells on level 6 you can request Siege Machines.

During the upgrade you can use the Clan Castle without any issues. You can request troops, use on attack and defenses and collect resources from the Treasury.

Clan Castle on Defense

Clan Castle is a very important building to defend your village. Housing up to 45 housing space units, they will leave the Clan Castle to defend your village upon attack.

The Clan Castle has a range 12 tiles. Once an enemy troop gets inside this radius the donated troops will leave the Clan Castle and fight them, just as your Heroes.

For this reason it is very important to place your Clan Castle near the center of your village. If you place on the corners the enemy can easily remove the troops from the castle with a bait troop, take them to the corner and kill before the actual attack.

Clan Castle troops killed defending your village are wasted, so after every defense on multiplayer you must request new troops.

However, on Legend League, Clan Wars and Clan War Leagues the troops will be automatically restored after being wasted on defense, so there is no need to request again.

Spells and Siege Machines stored on the Clan Castle are not used on defense.

It is possible to disable the use of Clan Castle on defense by putting the castle on "Guard". This is done so you don't lose your Clan Castle troops on defenses.

Clan Castle on Offense

The Clan Castle is also a very important building on offense. Housing up to 45 housing units, 2 spells and 1 Siege Machine that can be used on attacks, it is a critical feature on attacks.

All troops, spells and Siege Machines contained on the Clan Castle must be donated by clanmates. However, during battles you can choose if you want to use the Siege Machine from the Clan Castle or one from the army you've trained.


The Clan Castle building also houses the Treasury, therefore is considered a resource building and will be attacked by Goblins.

Treasury is a special storage that holds resources provided by Clan Wars, Clan Games and Star Bonuses.

Attackers can steal only 3% of the resources stored here, so it is considered a safe place to keep. The loot is provided only when the building is completely destroyed.

*Technically through normal gameplay only a Town Hall 3 or above player will have enough storage space to repair the Clan Castle, but players with lower Town Halls that purchase resource packs can repair the Clan Castle early - see the trivia above.

#Although the Clan Castle is present at Town Hall 1, it is in a ruined state and is not functional.

†The Laboratory level cap restricts levels of units donated to the maximum level allowed by that Laboratory level: for example, donating troops to a level 1 Clan Castle restricts the troops' level to the maximum allowed by a level 5 Laboratory (this does not restrict the types of troops donated except for Super Troops, which require the Laboratory to be able to upgrade the base troop to a level where the Super Troop can be boosted, and the Battle Drill, which require a level 9 Clan Castle to be received).
