Rotation Lock:


The April 2024 update is live!

Posted: Wednesday 17 April 2024

The April 2024 update for Clash of Clans adds some new levels for Town Hall 16, a new Hero Pet and number of QoL changes.


New Pet: Angry Jelly

Unlocked at TH16 once the Pet House has been upgraded to level 10, this pet causes the Hero it is assigned to attack defenses for a limited amount of time. While the assigned Hero is active, the Angry Jelly cannot be targeted or damaged and won’t trigger traps. Once the assigned Hero is eliminated, the Angry Jelly becomes a normal troop and can be targeted/trigger traps.

  • Builder’s Hut Level 6 (TH16)
  • Eagle Artillery Level 7 (TH16)
  • Monolith Level 3 (TH16)

  • Ice Golem Level 8

Quality of life improvements

Clan chat tagging

Similar to other chat applications, it is now possible to tag others in the Clan. There are 3 different tag types:

  • @clan - Notifies everyone in the clan, similar to @everyone tag on Discord etc
  • @leaders - Notifies all Co-Leaders and the Leader, similar to role tags on Discord etc
  • @player_name - Notifies a specific player, similar to tagging someone on Discord etc
Chat tagging

When joining a clan, you are unable to use tags for 30 minutes to help minimise tag spam shenanigans when joining multiple clans in quick succession.

Tagging is available after 30mins in a clan

Players can disable receiving these notifications within the notification settings menu (Settings > More Settings > Notification Settings > Clan Chat Tagging). This is a setting for each account, not device, so if you have multiple accounts, you can have different settings applied per account.

Level 12 Clan Castle with 2 Siege Machine Slots

A new Clan Castle level is being added for Town Hall 16 which includes 2 Siege Machine slots. This is an increase to the Siege Machine storage capacity and does not enable a player to deploy 2 Siege Machines in a battle.

  • Players may ask for up to two siege machines, and can ask for 2 of the same or 2 different ones
  • A single clan mate may donate up to two siege machines depending on the Clan Perks they have or two clan mates can donate one.
  • During battle, both siege machines donated will show up as options to be picked, even if they are the same machine

Defensive Layout for Builder Base!

Just like in Clan Capital, it’s now possible to select a separate Defensive Layout in Builder Base!

  • You can decorate the active layout without disadvantaging yourself in defense
  • You can prevent others from copying your defensive layout simply by visiting

The Defensive Layout must contain all buildings and traps that are placed in the active layout. Defensive Layout is unselected when:

  • Editing Defensive Layout directly and saving it without placing all buildings and traps
  • Placing an unplaced building or trap in the active layout
  • Buying a building or trap from Shop

Note that Defensive Layout is temporarily disabled but not automatically unselected if obstacles that grow to the active layout block some buildings and traps. In such a case, you can re-enable the layout simply by removing the offending obstacles.

Clan Games

  • Selection weight of certain Builder Base tasks has been reduced when randomising tasks which increases the likelihood of showing more Home Village tasks.
  • New task type for winning battles using selected Hero Equipment
    • You don’t gain progress if you own the equipment but don’t use it
    • You don’t gain progress if you don’t deploy the hero who is using the equipment
    • You do gain progress even if you don’t activate the hero’s special ability, provided you’re using the equipment and deployed the Hero
  • Applied Star Bonus multipliers from events and Town Hall upgrades to Ore as well
  • Grand Warden is less likely to follow Headhunters now
  • The Barbarian Puppet Hero Equipment now displays the Rage duration and damage increase gained by Barbarians spawned
  • The Laboratory shows a second progress bar for the Goblin Researcher

Clan Perks

The donation limits for donations are being considerably increased:

Clan Level Troop Donation Limit Spell Donation Limit Siege Machine Donation Limit
1-2 6 1 1
3 8 1 1
4-5 10 2 1
6-7 20 2 2
8 30 3 2
9+ 50 3 2

Bug Fixes

  • Fix bug which caused spawning of obstacles with smaller gem amounts than normal
  • Fireball should now damage both ground and air, whatever it is aiming at. It was previously only damaging ground buildings and troops if it targeted anything on the ground, and if it targeted an air troop, it would only damage air
  • Fix for a visual bug when Overgrowth and Invisibility spells are applied at the same time
  • Fix for traps remaining invisible when Freeze or Overgrowth spells are applied in the area
  • Fix building base to match scenery in Builder Base after cancelling layout editing
  • Flying 3D characters' health bar is slightly higher
  • Flying Warden does not jump over walls anymore
  • Fix villager shadow being on top of buildings
  • Royal Champion’s attacks doing less damage when the Haste Vial ability is active

Clan Capital

  • Increase loot limit per attack from 5333 to 6100 in Capital trophy calculations
  • Scale defensive bonus based on remaining hit points for deployed units

Clan Wars Changes

  • Town Hall 16 Villages now receive 6 Starry Ore instead 5 Starry Ore
  • Clan Wars rewards for losing from 43% to 50% and rewards for a tie from 50% to 57% apply to both resources and ore gains
  • 35 vs 35 and 45 vs 45 Wars are now enabled
  • Hero Equipment is now taken into account in attacks when matchmaking in addition to Town Hall levels
  • War roster selection screen now displays each clan member’s last seen online time
  • Clan War signup changes:
    • Clan Leaders and Co-Leaders can post a Clan War sign-up in Clan Chat. You can do so from the War Map, next to the “Start war” button
    • There can be only one sign-up item in the chat at the same time
    • Sign-ups in chat are only available in regular Clan Wars and not in Clan War League or in Friendly Wars
    • Every Clan member can choose to opt in or out from the next war
    • Sign-ups can be pinned and won’t be removed until the next war begins

Balance Changes

The attack speed increase % is being adjusted for the Haste Vial equipment. The bug fix listed above affecting the Royal Champion’s damage when the Haste Vial is active will increase the damage during ability, however this change will slightly reduce her damage in general.

Level Old Attack Speed Increase % New Attack Speed Increase %
9 11% 10%
10 12% 11%
11 13% 12%
12 13% 12%
13 14% 13%
14 15% 14%
15 15% 14%
16 16% 15%
