Trader Setup

The Trader's Setup

  • Summary
    • The Trader is a non-combatant which sells Magic Items for Gems.
    • He starts appearing in the Home Village once the player has upgraded their Town Hall to level 8. He sets up shop to the left of the Clan Path (from the player's view).
    • When the Trader is present, he stands outside of his shop, and shows the player the Magic Item he has by getting it out of his pocket.

  • List of Offers
    • Every day, he appears with three different offers. The offers may cost varying amounts of Gems, even amongst Magic Items of the same type.
    • At the bottom of the Trader window, there will be a timer showing how much time is left before new offers appear.
    • If the player has not enough room for the Magic Items that the Trader has on offer, these offers cannot be bought, citing "No space in Clan Castle" as a reason. The player must free up space if he/she wants to buy these offers, either by selling or using the excess Magic Items.
    • Below is a list of offers currently available from the Trader.

  • Trivia
    Trader away
    • If the player is below Town Hall 8 and has not yet unlocked the Trader, a sign with a rolled up rug is left in his place.
    • Once all 3 Magic Items have been purchased, a render of the Trader's setup is revealed.
    • Offer one is always the Training Potion, and can be claimed for free six times over a 40-day cycle.
    • Offer two is always the Resource Potion.
    • The Trader has a golden tooth, just like the Builder, as seen in this picture here.
    • If the player has unlocked the Trader without having rebuilt the Clan Castle, he/she can still purchase Magic Items from the Trader, and use them where relevant. The player, however, will not be able to view his/her inventory of Magic Items until the Clan Castle is rebuilt.
      • The player will still be constrained by the limits of storing Magic Items as if he/she had a Clan Castle, however. If the player reaches this limit, the player will still see the message "No space in Clan Castle" despite not having rebuilt it.
    • Buying Magic Items is more gem-efficient than directly spending gems in these circumstances:
      • The Training Potion, since boosting troop training on it own costs 30 gems;
      • The Resource Potion at TH 7 or higher, as a fully upgraded set of collectors at TH 6 costs 108 gems if boosted individually;
      • The Builder Potion is only favorable on buildings that take shorter to upgrade: the Builder Potion normally cuts 45 hours for 285 gems, which is roughly equal to the rate to instantly finish 4d 18h 25m 7s of Builder Time;
      • Buying Wall Rings is always cheaper than buying Resources from the Shop unless you waste the Wall Rings on lower-leveled Walls;
      • The Book of Heroes is cheaper than using gems to finish if the remaining time is at least 2d 22h 53m 50s (Home Village) or 1d 0h 5m 45s (Builder Base);
      • The Book of Fighting/Spells/Building is cheaper than using gems to finish if the remaining time is at least 6d 9h 35m 59s (Home Village) or 2d 16h 53m 45s (Builder Base);
      • Assuming you always use Runes when the corresponding Storages are empty, the Rune of Gold/Elixir is cheaper than buying Resources from the Shop if the Storage capacity is higher than 4,375,000 (at TH 8), and the Rune of Builder Gold/Builder Elixir is cheaper than buying Resources from the Shop if the Storage capacity is higher than 1,375,000 (at BH 5).
