Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Springfield has been transported back in time and things are looking vaguely familiar to another mobile game out there. Oh the Clash of the Clones is upon us! And with it arrives 4 new character skins for Homer, Lisa, Bart & Marge!
One of the new aspects of this event versus previous events is Leveling up. With Clash of Clones you can level up your Castles AND Characters (only the Simpsons). Castle level ups improve your town defense, increase your nerd production and increase your max nerd total, among other things. Castle levels ups cost Elixir, the new in game currency for the event, but Character level ups those cost Gold, the prize currency for the event. So, just what do character level ups do? Let’s take a look and find out….
You can level up 4 characters in this game, but only when they’re in their event skins. Those characters are:
Character Level Ups are a required element of the event, in order to complete the questlines you’ll have to level up characters to a certain point. Character Level Ups require Gold. However, to level up a character it will NOT take away Gold from your total. You’re simply required to have that much Gold on Hand to level the character up. (for example if you have 2000 Gold on hand, and you need 1,000 to level up Lisa, 1,100 to level up Bart and 2,000 to level up Marge you can do all 3 at that point. It won’t deduct from your total).
So now that we know you need Gold to Level up a character, let’s take a look at how you level up a character. It’s a fairly simple process. To level up a character you simply tap on the castle they’re associated with and scroll down till you find the character upgrade option:
The Barbarian Castle is home to Barbarian Homer and Wizard Marge.
Castle Recycle is home to Archer Lisa
Boxingham Palace is home to Goblin Bart
So now that we’ve got the “why”, the “who”, the “where” and the “how” down, let’s take a look at the “what”…as it what does it do and what does it cost.
The most common question we’re seeing about Character Leveling up is, What Does it Do? In short…nothing. It does very little to impact your characters, however it DOES increase their Elixir payout per task. As you increase each level you’ll see a slight increase in the amount of Elixir that’s payed out for each task the character skin performs. Here’s how the Elixir payout increases by Level:
For Barbarian Homer:
|Level 1||1 Elixir||4 Elixir||8 Elixirs||10 Elixirs||16 Elixirs||20 Elixirs|
|Level 2||2 Elixirs||5 Elixirs||9 Elixirs||11 Elixirs||17 Elixirs||22 Elixirs|
|Level 3||2 Elixirs||5 Elixirs||10 Elixirs||12 Elixirs||18 Elixirs||23 Elixirs|
|Level 4||2 Elixirs||5 Elixirs||10 Elixirs||12 Elixirs||18 Elixirs||24 Elixirs|
|Level 5||2 Elixirs||5 Elixirs||10 Elixirs||13 Elixirs||19 Elixirs||25 Elixirs|
|Level 6||2 Elixirs||6 Elixirs||11 Elixirs||13 Elixirs||20 Elixirs||26 Elixirs|
|Level 7||2 Elixirs||6 Elixirs||11 Elixirs||14 Elixirs||21 Elixirs||27 Exlirs|
|Level 8||2 Elixirs||6 Elixirs||12 Elixirs||14 Elixirs||21 Elixirs||28 Elixirs|
|Level 9||2 Elixirs||6 Elixirs||12 Elixirs||15 Elixirs||22 Elixirs||29 Elixirs|
|Level 10||2 Elixirs||6 Elixirs||12 Elixirs||15 Elixirs||23 Elixirs||30 Elixirs|
And here’s how it changes for Wizard Marge, Goblin Bart & Archer Lisa:
|Level 1||1 Elixir||4 Elixir||8 Elixirs||10 Elixirs||20 Elixirs|
|Level 2||2 Elixirs||5 Elixirs||9 Elixirs||11 Elixirs||22 Elixirs|
|Level 3||2 Elixirs||5 Elixirs||10 Elixirs||12 Elixirs||23 Elixirs|
|Level 4||2 Elixirs||5 Elixirs||10 Elixirs||12 Elixirs||24 Elixirs|
|Level 5||2 Elixirs||5 Elixirs||10 Elixirs||13 Elixirs||25 Elixirs|
|Level 6||2 Elixirs||6 Elixirs||11 Elixirs||13 Elixirs||26 Elixirs|
|Level 7||2 Elixirs||6 Elixirs||11 Elixirs||14 Elixirs||27 Exlirs|
|Level 8||2 Elixirs||6 Elixirs||12 Elixirs||14 Elixirs||28 Elixirs|
|Level 9||2 Elixirs||6 Elixirs||12 Elixirs||15 Elixirs||29 Elixirs|
|Level 10||2 Elixirs||6 Elixirs||12 Elixirs||15 Elixirs||30 Elixirs|
You’ll notice that both sets stop at Level 10, why is that? Because once you reach Level 10 Leveling up becomes even more pointless…and at that point it does absolutely nothing for you. In fact you’ll see this popup once your character reaches Level 10:
So now that we have the What does it do down…let’s talk about what it costs. Remember, you don’t actually lose gold when you level up a character. It’s merely the amount of Gold you must have on hand in order to do the Level up. However, your Gold total will never drop.
Here’s a look at how much Gold you must have on hand to Level Up each character to Level 10 (the max beneficial level):
|Barbarian Homer||Archer Lisa||Goblin Bart||Wizard Marge|
|Level 2||300 Gold||900 Gold||2,100 Gold||6,000 Gold|
|Level 3||750 Gold||1,650 Gold||3,150 Gold||7,500 Gold|
|Level 4||1,350 Gold||2,650 Gold||4,550 Gold||9,500 Gold|
|Level 5||2,100 Gold||3,900 Gold||6,300 Gold||12,000 Gold|
|Level 6||3,000 Gold||5,400 Gold||8,400 Gld||15,000 Gold|
|Level 7||4,050 Gold||7,150 Gold||10,850 Gold||18,500 Gold|
|Level 8||5,250 Gold||9,150 Gold||13,650 Gold||22,500 Gold|
|Level 9||6,600 Gold||11,400 Gold||16,800 Gold||27,000 Gold|
|Level 10||8,100 Gold||13,900 Gold||20,300 Gold||32,000 Gold|
Note: To get them to Level 11 here’s what it would cost (as an example…again anything past Level 10 literally means nothing to the game):
|Barbarian Homer||Archer Lisa||Goblin Bart||Wizard Marge|
|Level 11||9,600 Gold||16,400 Gold||23,800 Gold||37,000 Gold|
So when it comes down to it…what’s the point of it all? Well to find that out we have to take a look at Part 1 of the Clash of Clones Questline:
Barbarian Homer: Hey new Homer, how do I look?
Homer Barbarian: Like level 1 loser.
Barbarian Homer: Is level 1 the best level?
Homer Barbarian: Level 1 am worst level. Total noob level.
Barbarian Homer: A noob! That’s the worst thing a person can be! I don’t wanna start at Level 1. I should start at level… a million billion.
Homer Barbarian: It easy: get gold, go to castle, level up! Sometimes we level up in sleep.
Barbarian Homer: That is easy!
Homer Barbarian: Yes, leveling up am easy… at first!
Barbarian Homer: I don’t get your jokes.
So my pillaging friends, that about covers all of the details on leveling up your characters! That being said….what level are YOUR characters? What do you think of leveling up? Are you finding it easy to move through the questline, now that you have it all down? Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!
