Magic Items are boosters for your village. Each one fulfils a different role from boosting production/training times to instantly completing an upgrade.
They were introduced in December 2017 with the update that added Clan Games and there have been a number of additional Magic Items added since then.
How do you get them?
There are a number of ways to get Magic Books, Potions & Runes:
- Purchase them from the Trader for Gems
- Completing each tier in Clan Games
- Completing event objectives
- Purchasing special offers from the Shop/Special Offers tab
Magic Hammers can only be purchased from the League Shop with League Medals. League Medals are earned through being on the roster for Clan War Leagues.
Are there any limitations?
You can only store a certain number of each Magic Item, usually a limit of 1 for books, 1 for Runes, 5 for potions and 25 for Wall Rings. If you are already at capacity for an item, you aren’t able to purchase another from the Trader or recieve them from Clan Games/event completion until it has been used. If you complete an event and don’t have room for the reward, you can accept a Gem reward instead.
It used to be possible to exceed the Magic Item storage limit however this was changed in November 2018 to prevent this.
There is one exception to the stacking rule which is when Magic Items have been purchased from the Shop/Special Offers tab (not to be confused with the Trader). These items will exceed the limits, for example if you purchase an offer with 4 Book of Heroes, you will receive all 4 books in your Clan Castle.
Unable to claim your Clan Game rewards due to being at the limit?
If you are at the limit for a Magic Item, you won’t be able to select it from the Clan Game rewards. Should this happen, it can result in a scenario where you are unable to select any rewards from a Clan Games tier and therefore cannot claim the Clan Games rewards at all due to all rewards needing to be claimed at once. To resolve this, you’ll either use the Magic Items or if you are unable to use them (such as a Magic Book when you are already fully upgraded), you can sell them for gems.
The gem value for selling Magic Books is far below the value of builder/lab time they have save, so it’s best to use them if you can rather than sell them.
You will usually have a few days after the Clan Games have ended to claim the rewards, so if you can use any existing magic items before then to avoid needing to sell them. There is a timer displayed on the rewards screen so you can see how long you have.
For potions, you can use multiple potions at the same time and they will stack, for example using 3 Training Potions will boost your army for 3 hours (3 x 1 hour boost running consecutively).
List of Magic Items
Buy cost is the price the Trader sells the item at, sell value is how much you will recieve for selling the item and the league shop cost is how much it costs to purchase with League Medals, if it is available in the league shop.
Please Note: Wall Rings are purchased in bundles, however they can be sold individually for 5 gems each. The sell values listed below assume you sold the whole stack.
Hammers are availble from the League Shop and are purchased with League Medals, which are earnt from participating in Clan War Leagues (CWL).
Since the June 2019 update, a 7 day cooldown was introduced when purchasing hammers. Once you have purchased a particular hammer, you won't be able to purchase the same one again for 7 days.
