Clash of Clans is one of the few handful games where in-game purchases are worth investing in. The game offers a plethora of options to choose from its shop. Items ranging from powerful magic potions to cosmetic decorations for your village.
Even though one might argue that the cost to benefit ratio of the in-game purchases in Clash of Clans is justified and that one can benefit from using gems to expedite the processes. You can save up a lot of money if you put it in the right place. In this article we will tell you just how to do so. But before we head over to layout the steps in which you can save up upto 50% of the costs, let’s familiarise ourselves with the things at sale at the Clash of Clans shop.
You can obtain resources and magic items for yourself from either the shop or from the trader.
Shop is one way to get your hands on resources. Here you can find everything from gems to your home country’s flag. Most resources can be purchased with gems, other than the gems themselves of course.
One special section of the store worth mentioning is the League Shop. The currency this shop accepts is the League Medals. Which is what you earn when you compete in the clan War Leagues. You can find exciting deals in this shop, often at a great discount.
The daily deals are brought to you by the Trader. The trader, like the Builder, is a non-combatant. He brings to you Magic Items in sets of three, often at a discounted rate. If utilised properly, one can use these deals to their advantage.
One way to get a bang for your buck is by earning League medals from the Clan War Leagues. There is no way to purchase those, so essentially you would be earning great deals for free. Another way to save up money while making purchases, is by buying Magic Items off of the Trader. T
The trader cycles the daily deals in a 39 days cycle. Updating the three items every 24 hours. In order to make the most of it follow the steps below:
Step 1. Click on the Trader’s tent to see the items at display.
Step 2. Determine the stage of the cycle it is in. You can do that by observing the items in daily deals for two or three successive days then match the sequence with the list in this website.
This will help you figure out which phase of the cycle you are in. And predict the items you are gonna get for a discount in the near future.
Step 3. Use the information to your advantage and buy the magic items at a discounted rate.
For eg, if you are planning to upgrade a 7 day hero upgrade using gems, it would cost you 1000 gems. But if you know when the Book of Heroes is going to get in the deals cycle. You can complete the upgrade instantaneously with it. This would cost you 500 gems, effectively saving 500 gems. This is how you can use this cycle to your advantage. Happy Clashing!
