Well let me tell you about builder Smith. He was a hard-working employee of the Magical Forest. He knew everything about the defenses and troops. He was the wisest of them all. He had made the heroes the way they were today. He trained them in the art of being the strongest. He had gifted King with his Iron Fist and Queen with her Royal Cloak. He was the leader of the Ivory Tower.
He had felt that one day his trainees would be smited by the Supercell Gods. It has also appear that the conduit to contact them was destroyed. He has learned that he must help his fellow villagers refurbish their army and their base because their heroes could no longer defend against the evils of greed and gluttony. He has created a lodge available for you called the BlackSmith. It requires that your Town Hall be Lvl 8 and costs 1 million elixir and 1 million gold and 1 thousand dark elixir. It would take 5 days to build this lodge for him to rest.
Upon building this he will grant you: 10% build time reduction 5% defensive building strength 5% troop strength
The building itself has 3 branches: Troops,Buildings, and Heroes
Troops: You will see pictures of items. 6 for each troop. You can upgrade your puny troops and create 1 of 2 Pristine Troops out of a Barbarian, Archer, etc. Lets say you got an Iron Sword, a Steel Armor, and a Leather Sandals. You can create a Footman Pristine Troop (upon upgrading to lvl 6). You can also do a Battle Axe, Leather Armor, and Boar Hide Boot to create an Lumber-Jack. Here's the difference between a Lumber-Jack and a Footman.
A Lumber-Jack has more health, splash damage, but it is slower and weaker.
A Footman is faster, Deals more damage, but has less health than the Lumber-Jack
For the Archer, you can create either a Longbow Archer or an X-Bow Woman.
Now done with example I will show the possible upgrades you can get to unlock the Pristine Troops. Let's start with the infantry.
