Magical Items in Clash of Clans – COC
Magical items got introduced along with the Clan Games in December 2017 and they are very powerful items that can boost your progress a lot and help you so much. In this article, you will find everything that you need to know about them, how to use them, what magical items you can get in Clash of Clans and finally also how to get them.
What Are Magical Items?
So let’s start off with the magical items themselves – they are consumable items that you can use to boost upgrades, resource collection, your army or army training. They are divided into books and potions and some of them also work for your Builder Base as well:
Book of Fighting
Filled with very efficient training Programs, this magical book can be used to instantly complete any ongoing troop upgrade. Works in both villages!
Book of Building
Supposedly authored by the Master Builder himself, this magical book can be used to instantly complete any building upgrade. Works in both villages!
Book of Spells
Written by unknown wizards, this magical book can be used to instantly complete any ongoing spell upgrade. Works only in Home Village.
Book of Heroes
Full of heroic tales and sound advice, this magical book can be used to instantly complete any ongoing hero upgrade. Works in both villages!
Book of Everything
This extremely powerful magical encyclopedia can be used to instantly complete any ongoing upgrade. Works in both villages!
This strong-smelling magical brew can boost your troops and spells to the maximum level allowed by your Laboratory for 1 hour. Works in both villages!
A haste spell turned into a potion, this magical elixir can greatly boost your resource collector efficiency for 1 day. Works in Home Village!
This energetic elixir boosts your army production, increasing efficiency of barracks, spell factories and hero regeneration. Works in Home Village.
You can always see the available magical items inside your treasury of your Clan Castle.
Also, keep in mind that you can only have 1 book of a kind and 5 potions of a kind at once!
How To Use Magical Items
When you have a book available that you can use, you will see it directly when selecting an upgrade – here as an example the upgrade of the Barbarian King when I have one Book of Heroes available:
This will automatically skip the whole upgrade time and you can use the Hero right away instead of paying the Gems to finish the upgrade. Of course you will need to have the corresponding book depending if you want to skip the upgrade time of a spall upgrade, troop upgrade, hero upgrade or building upgrade.
Using spells are a global buff that you can start right out of the Magical Items section of your treasury and once you use it you have the power active for the time the potion offers (max troops levels, much more resource production or faster training times).
You can also do that when you have selected a building (in this case boost hero regeneration with a Training Potion):
How To Get Magical Items
The only way to get magical items is by unlocking them in the highest reward tiers of the Clan Games. Supercell still tries around how often and from which reward tier they are giving out the magical items, but especially books are exclusively only rewarded on the highest tiers right now.
Still, if you have a somewhat-active clan it’s not that difficult to unlock the highest reward tier and get yourself some nice magical items next to resources and gems.
