Jump Spell

A spell that temporarily allows ground troops to jump over Walls.



A structure that allows you to upgrade troops and spells.

Lava Hound

An air unit with a favorite target of Air Defenses. When a Lava Hound dies, it splits up into 8, 10 or 12 (dependent on level) Lava Pups, a weaker version of the Lava Hound. The Lava Hound is a Dark Elixir troop.

Lava Pup

A Lava Hound splits into up to eight of these (at level 1), ten (at level 2) and twelve (at level 3) of these Subtroops when it dies. A Lava Pup cannot be trained.


Refers to a specific distribution of buildings, traps and walls. Each layout is typically designed for a purpose (protecting resources, protecting trophies in general, defending against a particular troop like a Hog Rider, etc.). Different layouts not only cause troops to behave in a certain way, it also will typically dictate the attack strategy employed by the opponent.


The way Clash of Clans divides players with different trophy counts, by placing players with similar trophy count together to judge progress. There are eight leagues (namely Bronze, Silver, Gold, Crystal, Master, Champion, Titan and Legend), and each league except for Legend has three divisions. Higher leagues provide higher loot bonuses for every victory, but generally the opponents in higher leagues will be harder to beat. To join a League one must complete an attack when they have at least 400 trophies. The leagues reset every month.

Legend Trophies

Permanent purple Trophies that are awarded at the end of a Legend League season, in trade for any excess trophies past 5000 the player might have at the end of a Legend League season. These trophies are displayed in the player's profile.

Lightning Spell

A spell that invokes a number of lightning bolts drop from the sky, damaging all buildings and enemy troops in a small area. The closer the building or troop is to the center of the spell, the more damage that unit will receive.


Meat Shield

A meat shield is one or more troops used as a "distraction" to draw fire away from other troops so they can do damage. The Giant is obviously the most common meat shield because of his high health. A P.E.K.K.A is also a great choice for a meat shield because of her high health and high DPS. However, because many people don't have/can't afford a P.E.K.K.A, they use Giants instead.


Disorganized, free-for-all, close quarters combat. In Clash of Clans terms, a melee troop is one that attacks via hand-to-hand combat as opposed to at range. If a melee troop is in range to attack another troop, that troop can always attack back.


See Gold Mine.


An Elixir troop that burrows underground to reach their target, bypassing walls where necessary, while impervious to any damage while doing so.


An inexpensive, ranged air unit that has low HP and low DPS. It cannot be targeted by Seeking Air Mine. The Minion is a Dark Elixir troop.


See Clan Member.


A defensive structure that targets ground units only and has a very low attack rate, but does a considerable amount of splash damage over a relatively large radius.

Multiplayer Attack

See Raid. Multiplayer attacks refer specifically to those raids against another user, and often refer to only those attacks that occur as a result of multiplayer matches (those that trigger the trophy league loot bonus if successful).

Multiplayer Match

Multiplayer matching is the act of selecting the "Attack!" button on the main screen and then clicking "Find a Match" (for a nominal fee of Gold). If a player is currently in a Trophy League and successfully attacks using "Find a Match" (i.e. achieves at least one star), that player will receive the loot bonus associated with that league.



A verb used to describe searching for a base to raid. ex: I keep nexting but can't find a good base to attack.



Natural objects that are randomly placed about your village. Removing them can earn you a small amount of Gems. Obstacles periodically respawn, but only 40 of them will appear in your village at any one time. This includes Trees, Rocks, Bushes, Mushrooms, Gem Boxes, and Trunks.


A term that refers to a unit or structure completely destroying another previously-undamaged unit or structure in a single attack, i.e. destroying it in one shot. Usually used as a verb, such as "That Archer Tower one-shotted my Witch."


Parent troop

The reciprocal term of subtroops, referring to Golems, Witches and Lava Hounds. They split into or summon their corresponding subtroops.


Currently the most power of the Elixir-based troops, the P.E.K.K.A is a ground-based, melee unit that has very high HP and very high DPS. It has no preferential target, but Hidden Teslas attack it for double damage. Although Supercell has not officially stated what gender the P.E.K.K.A is, one of the loading screen hints indicates that it is a 'she.'


See P.E.K.K.A.


See P.E.K.K.A.

Poison Spell

A Dark Spell that slows down as well as damages enemy troops over time.

Preparation Day

The first phase of a Clan War, lasting 23 hours, in which participants can donate troops to War Bases in an effort to defend their War Bases as well as scout enemy War Bases for which they can formulate strategies in order to win stars from these enemy War Bases.


See Elixir Collector.
