So Clash of Clans players will get the Harness Dark Elixir at Town Hall 8, which will enable them to get Poison Spell (cloud of toxic that slows and drains the troops), Earthquake Spell (Takes away a percentage of the building's hitpoints) and Haste Spell (this will provide a speed boost with Rage Spell's half storage space.)

The update will introduce Titan League, Legend League and Legend League Tournaments. The update will also come with game balancing fixes and several improvements to the A.I and Interface of this mobile strategy game.

Guide on using the Earthquake Spell, Haste Spell and Poison Spell

The new update, The Dark Spell Factory for Clash of Clans, will be introducing three new spells for the players. These spells need to be used judiciously and at the appropriate time to make best of them.

Guide to Earthquake Spell

YouTube user, Clash Of Clans – ClashOnGan has shared a video about the Earthquake Spell and how effectively to use it.

He says that the Earthquake Spell will eat on a percentage of building's remaining hitpoints. The damage to a Townhall in this spell will be different from damage to builder's hut.

So where to use this spell? Players can use them at the places below:

  • Buildings with high hitpoints.
  • A building that has already taken a hit once and has only a small percentage of its hitpoints still left.

So players can use to weaken certain points and then attack with the soldiers.

Players must note that storages will not be taking any damages from the lightning or earthquake spell.

Guide to Haste Spell

The Haste Spell is part of the new update and will speed up your attack when players attack. We know that certain soldiers like Golums, Baloons or Giants are very slow. So this will quicken their attack on the enemy.

Haste Spell will is also a Dark Spell and will be taking only one housing space. Thus it will help players to queue up many of them.

It is preferred to have a higher level, say Level 4 Haste Spell as it will speed up and will last longer that the ones at a lower level.

Guide to Poison Spell

As part of the Dark Spell Factory update, players will now be able to queue spells similar to how it was done with training soldiers.

The Poison spell too is a Dark Spell. It is important to know that Poison Spells will stack and the poison does not kill the attacking army.

Another important thing to know about the Poison spell is that they work against Dragons i.e Air Troops too can be attacked.

So players can draw out the Clan Castle troops and easily drop the Poison Spell. Though this spell will deal a severe blow to the Level 1 Heroes of the defending troops, for a higher Level Heroes attacking party will end up using more Poison spells, said YouTuber, Clash of Clans Attacks.
