The February 2024 update is here

Posted: Tuesday 27 February 2024

The February 2024 update for Clash of Clans adds some new levels for Town Hall 16, 2 new equipment for the Royal Champion and the Overgrowth Spell.


New Dark Spell: Overgrowth Spell

Unlocked at Town Hall 12 once the Dark Spell factory has been upgraded to level 6, this spell causes roots to ensnare nearby buildings. These buildings will be frozen, invulnerable and ignored by attacking troops. This can open new opportunities for funneling and pathing your troops.

Progress Bars are Back!

Most likely inspired by the recent Clash Ninja Equipment update, progress bars are back on the in game information screens.

These indicate progress towards the maximum level for the current Town Hall level.
