Full Release Notes

There’s Magic In the Air...

The Town Hall level 15 is here and it’s the biggest content release we’ve ever done for a Town Hall update!

While Town Hall 15 does not have a unique signature defensive weapon, its Giga Inferno can be upgraded several times to make it even more powerful than before.

New Defenses: Spell Tower & Monolith

Magical color palettes aren’t the only arcane affectation being introduced with the Town Hall 15 update. We’re bringing two brand new defenses to Town Hall 15. Base building will never be the same again!

Meet Spell Tower and Monolith…and watch your enemies tremble in fear.

  • Spell Tower

As Spell Tower is leveled it becomes imbued with different Spells, allowing you to select which Spell it will cast while defending your base. Starting at level 1, Spell Tower will cast Rage Spell to boost nearby Defenses and units. Level 2 allows you to set Spell Tower to launch Poison Spell at nearby enemies, and Level 3 will cast Invisibility - allowing nearby defensive units and buildings to be temporarily concealed.

When you upgrade to Town Hall 15, you’ll be able to place 2 Spell Towers in your Home Village.

  • Monolith

This tank killing Defense is so sinister, it’s constructed and upgraded with Dark Elixir. Even its brooding presence leaves a dark stain on the world around it. While its origins may be mysterious, its ability to wreak havoc on attacking forces leaves no doubt as to its effectiveness.

Though Monolith will deal a base level amount of damage per shot, each shot also does additional bonus damage based on a percentage of its target’s max hit points making Monolith incredibly dangerous against high HP units such as tanks or Heroes.

New Troop: Electro Titan

Electro Titan is a brand new Troop that you unlock at Town Hall level 14.

Her crackling fist and phosphorescent eyes are not simply to illuminate her surroundings. Electro Titan lashes out at enemies with a short-ranged whip that can target both ground and air units. However, it’s her special ability to cause devastation around her that makes her even more dangerous. Electro Titan emits an area of effect aura that will continually damage everything - defenses, air, and ground units. However, you should note Walls are immune to her electrical aura.

  • Favorite Target: Any
  • Damage Type: Single Target
  • Targets: Ground & Air
  • Training Time: 6m
  • Housing Space: 32

New Siege Machine: Battle Drill

Battle Drill unlocks at Siege Workshop level 7 and will burrow beneath the ground in order to avoid being detected by enemy defenses. When Battle Drill surfaces to attack the nearest enemy defense, it will stun its target for 2 seconds.

  • Favorite Target: Defenses
  • Damage Type: Single Target
  • Targets: Ground
  • Training Time: 20m

New Spell: Recall Spell

Battles will never be the same again. Unlocks at Town Hall level 13, Recall Spell is a powerful new way to deploy your attacks. When Recall Spell is used, it will remove units from the battlefield where they can be redeployed elsewhere. Whether it’s to save them from a lethal enemy defense or to send your units into battle from another position, recalled units can be redeployed as a group anywhere Troops can be placed.

The amount of units that can be recalled is determined by the Housing Space limit each level has. Troops, Heroes, and Hero Pets can all be recalled, where Heroes count as 25 Housing Space and Hero Pets count as 20 Housing Space. Redeployed units retain any damage dealt or any status effects applied to them when they are recalled. Recall Spell will prioritize units in order of higher Housing Space first.

Any recalled units that remain undeployed at the end of the battle will disappear.

  • Target: Ground & Air
  • Housing Space: 2
  • Brewing Time: 6m

New Hero Pets

Frosty

This chilly companion will slow down enemies with his icy breath. Meanwhile, Frostmites - hitchhiking balls of ice - will occasionally jump off and attack enemy defenses to slow them down as well.

  • Favorite target: Within 4.5 tiles of Hero
  • Damage type: Single Target (slows down defenses)
  • Targets: Ground & Air

Diggy

This shy creature will burrow underground beside his Hero and will pop up to stun and attack nearby defenses. Should Diggy’s Hero be taken out during battle, Diggy will go in search of a new Hero to bond himself to.

  • Favorite Target: Hero’s Target
  • Damage Type: Single Target
  • Targets: Ground

Poison Lizard

Imagine Poison Lizard as your Hero’s own personal Headhunter bodyguard. It spits toxic chemicals as a lightning fast ranged attack that deals Poison damage to defending Heroes and Troops, slowing them down. If no enemy units are nearby, Poison Lizard will assist its Hero in attacking targeted Buildings. Buildings are not affected by Poison Lizard’s slowing effect. And yes, we know it’s ‘venom’ but we think ‘poison’ sounds cooler.

  • Favorite Target: Heroes and Troops
  • Damage Type: Single Target
  • Targets: Ground & Air

Phoenix

What at first may seem like an insignificant egg that follows your Hero around, Phoenix will emerge as a foul-tempered fiery feathered friend when her Hero is about to be knocked out. Phoenix revives herself and her Hero under a temporary shield of invulnerability. Once the shield expires, the Hero will be knocked out but Phoenix will continue to fight on.

  • Poison is not applied to Miners while underground. Additional note: Poison is not applied to Diggy or Battle Drill while underground.
  • Clan War League seeding thresholds have been adjusted for Silver 1 league and above.

Barracks Rework

In an effort to reduce clutter in your Home Village, we’ve consolidated all Barracks and all Dark Barracks into a single Barrack and Dark Barrack respectively. Duplicate Buildings are removed automatically and the highest level Building will be the remaining one if your Barracks and Dark Barracks are of different levels. If all Barracks and Dark Barracks are under construction then the one with the shortest upgrade time remaining will be kept.

  • Troop training time is now the same as with 4 Barracks or 2 Dark Barracks.
  • All production buildings (Barracks, Dark Barracks, Spell Factory, Dark Spell Factory and Siege Workshop) will now be able to keep training units when under upgrade. Instead of stopping completely they’ll continue training at 50% of their normal speed.
  • Starter Challenge tasks which required multiple Barracks buildings have been replaced or modified.

Season Challenge Improvements

  • Seasonal Challenges are now customized by players' Town Hall and Builder Hall levels. Every challenge offered should now be doable. Lower level players will no longer be asked to do tasks that they couldn’t do e.g. use a troop that unlocks much later.
  • Players who had the Gold Pass for the previous month’s Season will get a bonus 200 Challenge Points if they get the Gold Pass for this Season. This change will take effect with the November season.

Clan Capital Prioritization

Clan Leaders and Co-Leaders can now prioritize up to 3 upgrades per District in your Clan Capital. This will help Leaders and Co-Leaders provide recommendations for which upgrades should come next. Players are still free to spend their Capital Gold on any upgrades they wish.

AI Changes

  • Better attack position selection if many attack position candidates are blocked by Walls.
  • Healers are now less likely to target Grand Warden, Golem, Golemite, Ice Golem and Headhunter. Slightly less likely to target Royal Champion or Barbarian King.
  • Healers no longer target Wall Breakers, Super Wall Breakers, or Yetimites.

Cosmetics

  • New Music for:
    • 9th Anniversary Scenery
    • Epic Jungle Scenery
    • Jungle Scenery
  • Full new animation set for:
    • Default Archer Queen
    • Default Royal Champion
  • Fire Sword effect updated for Champion King

Time & Cost Reductions

As part of refactoring and balancing upgrade costs, with the introduction of Town Hall 15 we’ve reduced the upgrade costs and upgrade times of numerous units, defenses, and buildings.

Check out our post on reddit which included the entire change list.
