Some ways to gain passive Dark Elixir

Are you at Town Hall 8 and find it hard to finish the level 2 Golem, level 4 Hog Rider or even the level 10 King upgrade? Have you just hit Town Hall 9 and want to either focus on all resources at a time or gain Dark Elixir passively? I’d like to give you some small tips about passive Dark Elixir today! Thanks dwayne6423 very much for reminding me about this topic.

Passive Dark Elixir in Clash of Clans

Although the tips which I am going to give you today are pretty popular (I even have mentioned them couples of times in my guides here) but I can see that a lot of players disregard and don’t care about them much. So today I’ve decided to combine them at here:

  1. Upgrade your Dark Elixir Drills to their maxed level. With maxed Dark Elixir Drills, you can gain total 1080Dark Elixir everyday at Town Hall 7, 2160Dark Elixir everyday at Town Hall 8 and it is even up to 4800Dark Elixir per day at Town Hall 9. Let’s imagine how great it is with that production rate?
  2. Farming in Crystal leagues for Dark Elixir Bonus. I know that a lot of players think farming in Crystal leagues is much tougher than in Gold/Silver leagues. No, it is not that hard at all. You absolutely can find inactive bases at here easily and also get sniped immediately after logging out. Let’s assume that you just can do 5 attacks everyday at Crystal 2 league, that’s 1000Dark Elixir more everyday!
    With my experience, I can see that you will rarely get attacked over 50% If you go to Crystal I.
  3. Having a good Dark Elixir protection base layout. Let’s take a look at the Base Designs box and refer some best DE protection layouts for your Town Hall level. You don’t need to copy them. Read to see how they work then you can design your exclusive one.

By following these 3 simple tips, I think there is no reason for a lazy Town Hall 9 player to be able to hit the level 4 Golem upgrade button within 2 weeks, regardless of your army compositions in Clan Wars.
