There areplenty of answers and opinions for one of the most popular questions in Clash of Clans: What is the best time to upgrade the Barbarian King?
He is one of three Heroes in game, who requires a lot of time and also Dark Elixir to upgrade. By knowing the answer of the question above, the growing time of your village can be boosted a lot.
At level 1, he has 120 DPS and 1700 HP and they will be 259 DPS and 4453HP at level 40. A level 40 Barbarian King can be a real wicked beast once he can get into the enemy base core, as you can see in the video below:
Firstly, if you don’t know, The Barbarian King is basically a larger and more powerful unit than Barbarians. You can summon him by spending 10,000 Dark Elixir at Town Hall 7. He is an immortal unit in Clash of Clans, just can be summoned once and will never die entire the game. You can read more about him at his specific page on CoCLand.
Getting Barbarian King is the top priority and the most dazzling moment of all Town Hall 7 players. By having him, especially when he hits level 5 with the new Iron Fist ability, your farming speed can be skyrocketed. Don’t spend Dark Elixir on anything until your King reaches level 5! Although there are 2 other units which require Dark Elixir to be upgraded at TH 7 are Hogs and Minions but truly they are quite weak, you will just use them from late Town Hall 8, so you don’t need to care about them at this time. After the new update with the nerf on zapping DE, farming Dark Elixir at Town Hall 7 is now pretty harder. This guide will give you some useful tips for Farming Dark Elixir at TH7.
At Town Hall 8, you can work on him while upgrading Hog Rider and Golem. If you are a hard farmer, just max him out! It doesn’t matter If you go to Town Hall 9 without having level 10 King because farming DE at TH9 is much easier. From Town Hall 9, you will have to work on both Barbarian King and Archer Queen at a time, this will be a bit harder for choosing the best time to upgrade one of them in order to not affect your farming speed. This guide will help you find the answer for this question.
