Video guide on how to get builder:

In the SHOP icon located in the bottom right corner, you can access the resources icon, then you access the option to purchase builders. Builders can only be purchased with gems. In the beginning of the game you start with one builder. During the tutorial you must purchase a 2nd builder which costs 250 gems. After you purchase a builder the price always doubles. So the 3rd builder will cost 500 gems, 4th 1000 gems, and the 5th 2000 gems. There are only 5 builders currently available in the game. There is no level requirement to purchase builders because of how costly they are, so purchase builders whenever you can to increase how many structures you can build and upgrade at once.



Watch this video to learn more about Archer Tower in Clash of Clans:

You can unlock this defense tower when you reach a level 2 town hall, and you can start construction when you have collected 1,000 gold. After construction is complete, you’ll notice an archer placed on the tower. These towers are extremely versatile defensive structures because of their ability to attack both ground and air troops. Since the Archer Towers have excellent range, we suggest you place them along the outer perimeter of your village. Doing so allows your Archer Tower to inflict more damage to invaders before they can reach your other defense’s range. But, keep in mind that the Archer Tower can only attack one target at a time.



Check out this video to learn ways to get free shields:

Shields temporarily provide safety from enemy attacks for a specified period of time. During this time, other players simply cannot attack your village. In the beginning of the game, each player starts with a 3-day shield. After that shield expires, you can gain another shield in one of two ways. Either you automatically receive a shield after being the victim of a successful raid in which your town hall is destroyed, or you purchase a shield with gems. You can attack other people but in doing that you will lose your shield even if you purchased the shield with gems. This rule does not apply if you are in campaign mode.



Watch this video to learn the ways to get free gems in Clash of Clans:

The three ways to get free gems
- The first way is to complete achievements which will earn you free gems. For example, upgrading your gold storage to level 2 will reward you 2 gems for completion.
- The second way is to remove obstacles that are in the game. Obstacles are the tree trunks, trees, bushes, rocks, boulders, and other various nature parts that will appear around your village. Removing an obstacle will reward you with 0 to 6 gems each.
- The third way you can get free gems is by ranking high. To win these gems you need to be in the top 10 players of the top 3 clans at the end of the clash of clans tournament. At the end of each two-week period, the top 3 clans will earn 20,000 gems for 1st, 10,000 gems for 2nd and 6,000 gems for 3rd place. These totals are divided equally amongst the top 10 players in these clans.
