Knowing how to donate troops in Clash of Clans is crucial, as helping your fellow clan members is a major part of the game. Being part of a clan can seem daunting but this guide will teach you how to donate troops so you can become one of the best clan members in all of Clash of Clans.
Competing in Clan Wars and being part of the community are some of the main factors that have kept people playing the game for so many years since its release. One of the most important things to be consistent at in any clan is to make sure you are donating your troops to those that need them. Otherwise, an Elder, Co-Leader, or the Leader themselves may kick you from their clan.
First things first, you need to join a clan before you can give troops to other players.
How to Join a Clan in Clash of Clans
To join a clan, you first need to repair the Clan Castle. Once you’ve done that, go ahead search for a clan to join by using the suggested clan list, or you can join a specific clan if you’ve got one in mind by using the search feature.
Remember that a clan with 46/50 members is going to have a lot more troops being requested than a clan with only 4/50 members. It also means that there are more people to give you the troops you want and a bigger community filled with like-minded players to spend your time with.
The Clan Wars are also going to be much more of a team effort with thousands of troops being used and a hefty reward at the end for your commitment to the clan.
How to Donate Troops in Clash of Clans
Once you have joined your new clan, it’s time to open up the clan chat – which can be found by selecting the arrow on the left-hand side of the screen. The chat shows all the members online and allows you to communicate with everyone, and most importantly this is where you are able to donate troops.
In the chat, you will see every player that is requesting troops and it will show the icon of each troop they want in their army, along with the amount they need. All you need to do is click on the Donate button and you will be shown a screen with all the troops you have ready. Hopefully, you have troops that the other member needs and you can select them to donate them.
There is nice and easy to find out if you have any troops available to donate as they will be colored whilst all the troops that you can’t donate will be greyed out.
Requirements for Donating Troops
There are some troops that a member may need which you have but you find that you cannot send them over to help, this may be because you are not at a high enough clan castle level. To make it so that you can donate any troop your clan castle will need to be upgraded to level 8 – which is no small feat.
However, the higher your clan castle level and the more troops that you donate the more valuable a clan member you will become, and it will be the first step of growth in the community so that you can start your journey to becoming an Elder or even a Co-Leader.
