In Clash of Clans, Town Hall 6 is one of the more uneventful Town Hall levels. With very few new structures, it makes this upgrade priority guide very straightforward and easy to follow. Most players should have 3 builders by Town Hall 6, so the guide assumes this builder count.
Each builder should follow the recommended pathway below. When these high-priority Town Hall 6 upgrades are finished, those builders can then start working on the “tasks” listed later in this article, completing each task in order before moving on to the next task.
Builder #1. Laboratory –> Army Camp #2
The first builder should immediately begin work on upgrading the Laboratory. Researching new tiers of units is the biggest timesink at Town Hall 6, so it is important to upgrade the lab and start this research right away.
As soon as this builder is finished upgrading the lab, start researching one of the newly available unit upgrades. Have this builder then begin to upgrade one of the army camps up to the new max level (6).
Builder #2. Spell Factory –> Army Camp #3
The second builder should focus on upgrading the Spell Factory from level 1 to level 2. This will give the player access to the Healing Spell as well as allow the player to create two spells instead of just one. Healing Spells will significantly increase your farming capabilities and will make it easier to farm resources, which is why the Spell Factory is high on this list.
As soon as the Spell Factory is finished, this builder should then begin working on upgrading the final Army Camp to level 6.
Builder #3. Place New Walls –> Upgrade Army Camp #1 –> Upgrade Clan Castle
The third builder should begin work at Town Hall 6 by placing the new walls. Since all the upgrades we are focusing on first cost Elixir, it may be useful to dump some gold into these new walls and upgrade them a few levels.
As soon as the walls are placed, start upgrading the first Army Camp to level 6. Army Camps are a high-priority upgrade since the extra supply count will noticeably improve the strength of your attacks.
After the Army Camp is finished upgrading, have this builder start upgrading the Clan Castle. The extra 5 supply count offered by the upgraded Clan Castle will improve both offense and defense noticeably.
After High Priority TH6 Upgrades
As soon as each builder finishes his high-priority tasks above, start working on the tasks below, going through them in order.
Task #1. Adding New Towers & Rearrange Base
Players get access to a new Mortar and Wizard Tower at Town Hall 6. Start constructing these two towers. As soon as construction on these two towers has started, rearrange your base to match my recommended Town Hall 6 Base Layout.
Task #2. Upgrading Barracks
After adding your new towers, take one builder and have this builder focus on upgrading all Barracks to the new maximum level. I recommend only having 1 builder dedicated to this task at a time as Barracks are unable to produce units while upgrading. If you have all of your Barracks upgrading at the same time, you will not be able to farm. Have your remaining builders start on Task #3.
Task #3. Upgrading Defensive Towers
Once you have completed the rest of the upgrades laid out in this guide, you can start upgrading defensive towers. Upgrading defensive towers at TH6 is not a very high priority, as it is very hard to defend your resources at TH6 no matter what level your defensive towers are at. The reason is that TH7 players have much larger army sizes and a new round of powerful unit upgrades that make it easy for even a Barbarian/Archer combo with no spells to wipe a TH6 player.
Farming at TH6 is more about taking resources rather than protecting the resources you already have, so tower upgrades are a low priority.
Task #4. Building and Upgrading Remaining Structures
As you finish upgrading, your towers, you should start your Town Hall 7 upgrade. While upgrading to Town Hall 7, finish off any buildings that are not upgraded yet. This includes things like your Elixir and Gold Storage as well as your new Gold Mine and Elixir Collector. Use this time to finish maxing out walls if you have not done so already.
Do not worry about maxing out your Gold Mines and Elixir Collectors before moving on to Town Hall 6. Max out everything else, and then move on to TH6.
What About Walls?
Ideally, you will be upgrading walls throughout this entire process. While all of your builders are busy, you should be able to farm up close to the resource cap. As a builder becomes available, you can note how much you need to start that builder’s next upgrade, and before starting the upgrade, spend the rest of your remaining resources upgrading walls.
If you make an effort to ensure that builders do not finish structures at the exact same time, you can repeat this process of maxing out your resources and then spending on walls many times over. This way, you never have to have a dedicated time period to just farming for walls during Town Hall 6.
