How Much Would it Cost to Max Out Clash of Clans (2024) Gems, Gold, Elixir Calculator

Are you wondering too that How Much Would it Cost to max out clash of clans? If you want to know the full instant build cost in COC from Town hall 1 to Town hall 16 then you are at the right place.

We Did the Math.

First of all, we have to define Cost.

In the clash of clans, the in-game currency is Gems. This is different from real-world currency.

We would consider USD as the base in world currency here.

Apart from this, we will also consider the time spent. COC might not consume your direct time but the time taken by the builder to upgrade a building takes days. So indirectly upgrading COC can take a lot of time.

So let’s take a detailed look at how much it would cost to max out Clash of Clans?

NOTE – This Post has fresh data which is in sync with the latest clash of clans update that happened in FBERUAYR 2024.

How Much Gold to Max Out Clash of Clans

Now Let Us assume that you have just signed up in Clash of Clans. You want to max out to the highest Town Hall 16 by spending gems.

You will need to spend gems on –

  • Buying builders (UPTO 6)
  • Buying GOLD (to upgrade defenses, Storages, Clan castle walls, and Town Halls)
  • Buying Elixir (To upgrade Barracks, Storages, Grand Warden, spells, and troops in the laboratory)
  • Buying Dark Elixir (to upgrade heroes, spells, and troops in the laboratory)
  • To buy Builder potions (to speed up the remaining 5 builders while using gems on just one)

FUN FACT – Upgrading Walls will use 10% more Gold than all the building upgrades combined from TH1 to TH16.

We, Will, Calculate the wall cost separately.

  • TH7 – 23,917,800
  • TH8 – 74,973,050
  • TH9 – 114,661,600
  • TH10 – 301,051,750
  • TH11 – 585,249,250
  • TH12 – 833,580,500

  • TH15 – 1,661,803,340

Total Elixir Cost to Max Out Clash of Clans from TH1 to TH16

  • TH1 – 3700
  • TH2 – 22000
  • TH3 – 124,300
  • TH4 – 813,650
  • TH5 – 2,766,750
  • TH6 – 5,585,550

  • TH11 – 201,300,000
  • TH12 – 353,000,000
  • TH13 – 298,000,000
  • TH14 – 208,500,000
  • TH15 – 841,900,000
  • TH16 – 547,800,000

The total would be 991,948,900. In words, it would be Nine hundred Ninety million Nine Hundred forty-eight thousand nine hundred. It is less than 1 billion.

To buy 991,948,900 elixirs you have to spend 281,203 Gems.

In simple terms upgrading gold buildings costs 4.5 times more than upgrading elixir buildings. This means that you require more gold to max out clash of clans as compared to elixir.

This was the elixir cost of only upgrading buildings. Now let us consider the elixir spent on upgrading troops, spells, and siege machines in the laboratory.

Laboratory unlocks at TH3 so we will start from there

  • TH3 – 115,000
  • TH4 – 300,000
  • TH5 – 1,370,000
  • TH6 – 1,625,000
  • TH7 – 10,280,000
  • TH8 – 21,950,000
  • TH9 – 37,300,000
  • TH10 – 90,200,000
  • TH11 – 137,500,000
  • TH12 – 222,500,000
  • TH13 – 343,000,000
  • TH14 – 170,000,000
  • TH15 – 416,000,000
  • TH16 – 374,000,000
  • Total – 1,036,140,000

So upgrading all troops to max would cost around one billion thirty-six million one hundred forty thousand.

To Buy 1036140000 Elixir you have to spend 293654 Gems

Wall Upgrades to Max Out Clash of Clans

Now Let’s calculate wall upgrade cost.

Up to level 8, you can upgrade walls by using gold only. However, after level eight you can use either gold or elixir to upgrade the wall.

Here we will calculate total gold only but again buying the same amount of gold or elixir using gems would cost the same. Therefore, overall resource bough would cost the same amount.

  • TH2 – 26,250
  • TH3 – 276,250
  • TH4 – 901,250
  • TH5 – 2,401,250
  • TH6 – 5,901,250
  • TH7 – 17,802,500
  • TH8 – 41,552,500
  • TH9 – 191,151,250
  • TH10 – 301,401,250
  • TH11 – 651,401,250
  • TH12 – 1,200,000,000
  • TH13 –1,800,000,000
  • TH14 – 1,401,401,250
  • TH15 – 2,680,791,950
  • TH16 – 2,101,561,150
  • TOTAL – 5,618,216,250

This would be counted as Five billion Six hundred eighteen million two hundred sixteen thousand two hundred fifty.


To Buy 5618216250 gold or elixir you have to spend 1,591,951 Gems.

Do the walls of your house cost the same too?

DO you think Supercell should give an option to upgrade walls using Dark elixir too?

How Much Dark Elixir to Max Out Clash of Clans

Now let’s move on to the rare resource – Dark Elixir.

At later town halls, you will realize how tough it is to loot or my dark elixir.

All your strategies at upper TH will mainly focus on looting D.E.

Here is how much DE you will need to upgrade all your heroes–

  • TH7 – 36,000
  • TH8 – 65,000
  • TH9 – 1,730,000
  • TH10 – 1,640,000
  • TH11 – 2,970,000
  • TH12 – 6,693,000
  • TH13 – 11,205,000
  • TH14 – 4,715,000
  • TH15 – 8,310,000
  • TH16 – 4,830,000
    TOTAL – 29,054,000

So you have to buy Twenty-nine million fifty-four thousand dark elixirs to upgrade Your Barbarian Kind, Archer Queen, and Royal Champion

To buy 29 million Dark Elixir you have to spend 802,644 Gems

We are assuming that you will not spend this DE to use super troops.

Now let’s see how much DE you will need in laboratory upgrades to max out clash of clans –

  • TH7 – 8000
  • TH8 – 105,000
  • TH9 – 337,000
  • TH10 – 835,000
  • TH11 – 1,620,000
  • TH12 – 2,840,000
  • TH13 – 2,360,000
  • TH14 – 8,915,000
  • TH15 – 3,620,000
  • TH16 – 2,420,000
    TOTAL – 17,020,000

This comes at a whopping total of Seventeen million twenty thousand. You have to spend 470,216 gems to buy this much DE.

Here are some interesting facts that we observed while calculating this mammoth of data –

  • Archer towers require most gold in upgrades 741 million.
  • Upgrading the Tornado trap to the max would cost you only 14 million, which is the least among other buildings.
  • Most of your elixir would be spent on upgrading Grand Warden. GW requires around 585 million elixirs to max out.
  • Spell factory won’t bother you after TH11 and it will cost only 980K elixir to max out.
  • In the laboratory, Dragons will cost a hefty sum of 65 million elixirs to max out.
  • Rage Spell will max out only in 17 million elixirs.
  • Archer Queen will max out in 11 million Dark elixirs, Barbarian King in 10 million while Royal champion would need 7 Million DE to max out.
  • The unicorn would be the costliest pet with 2.5 million DE spent on upgrades.
  • Earthquake spell will max out with a mere 255K DE.

This was the cost of resources to max out the clash of clans.

Now let’s calculate how much time you would need to invest to max out the clash of clans.

Your Town Hall will upgrade in two ways – One via builders where they will upgrade every building. Another is via laboratory where all your troops, spells will be upgraded.

You get to start with two builders but you can increase this quantity up to 6.

Unlocking addition builders too will cost gems. Unlocking the sixth builder will require some builder base missions to be completed.

Anyways here we will tell you the upgrade time in upgrading every individual building at every town hall. Thus you can check the total time required to max out clash of clans.
UPDATE: Earlier this list focused on just two builders but now we are assuming that you have 5 builders unlocked. Also supercell has reduced upgrading time by a huge margin in past few years. As of 2024 here is how much time it will take you to max out from TH1 to TH16:

  • TH1 – 9 Minutes
  • TH2 – 43 Minutes
  • TH3 – 13 Hours
  • TH4 – 1 day 15 hour 22 minute 40 sec
  • TH5 – 3 Days 7 hour 40 min 30 sec

  • TH12 – 144 days 21 hour
  • TH13 – 205 days 22 hour 6 min
  • TH14 – 224 days 7 hour 6 min
  • TH15 – 286 days 7 hour 6 min
  • TH16 – 196 days 17 hour 6 min
    TOTAL – 1250 DAYS 21 HOURS 50 MINUTES 35 SECONDS (Around 3 and a half year)

Now Take a look at Lab Upgrades research time

  • TH3 – 10 hours
  • TH4 – 18 hours
  • TH5 – 2 days 4 hour
  • TH6 – 2 days 11 hours
  • TH7 – 10 days 14 hours
  • TH8 – 24 days 14 hours

  • TH13 – 269 days 12 hours
  • TH14 – 280 days
  • TH15 – 468 days
  • TH16 – 378 days
    TOTAL – 1976 DAYS 11 Hours (Around 5 years and 4 months)

Also upgrading all the Pets to Max will cost 210 days. The pet laboratory is separate and it can simultaneously max out clash of clans pets.

Here is how much time it will cost if use 2,3,4,5 or 6 builders to max out clash of clans.

  • 2 Builders – 3599 Days 22 Hours 55 min 18 sec
  • 3 Builders – 2399 days 23 hour 16 minutes 12 seconds
  • 4 Builders – 1799 days 23 hours 27 minutes 39 seconds
  • 5 Builders – 1439 days 23 hour 34 min 7 sec
  • 6 Builders – 1249 days 23 hour 38 min 26 seconds

The sixth builder can only be available after TH10 and only after you have completed certain missions in the builder base.
