Town Hall 7 Upgrade Priority

Town Hall 7

On this page of our guide, we will explain what the best upgrades are for Town Hall 7 in Clash of Clans and how you’ll benefit from each of them.

The upgrade order is important because it will allow you to raid more efficiently and protect your hard earned resources from attacking players.

The upgrade order for Town Hall 7 is:

  1. Laboratory
  2. Dark Elixir Storage
  3. Dark Elixir Drill
  4. Barbarian King
  5. Spell Factory
  6. Gold Mines & Elixir Collectors
  7. Gold Storage & Elixir Storage
  8. Wizard Towers
  9. Air Defenses
  10. Mortars
  11. Archer Towers
  12. Cannons
  13. Air Sweeper
  14. Traps
  15. Walls

We recommend adding all of your new buildings to your base prior to upgrading existing buildings. This is especially important at this Town Hall level because you’ll unlock two additional buildings that will greatly help raiding and your base defense. The first new building is an Army Camp. It will increase the max army that you can use during a battle. The second new building is an Air Defense tower. This will make it significantly harder for other players to 3 star you with air troops.

We believe the Laboratory building should be your first Town Hall 7 upgrade. It will unlock several troop upgrades that will help you with farming, wars and trophy pushing. They’re mentioned below in the Laboratory section of this page.

The second priority at this level should be collecting Dark Elixir and saving up for your first hero unit. The Barbarian King is an immortal unit that will help significantly with raids and defending your base. Focus on collecting as much Dark Elixir as possible and continually upgrading the Barbarian King.

The Spell Factory will be another important building to focus on. Upgrading the building will increase its storage capacity and unlock the Rage Spell. The Rage Spell increases the speed and damage of your troops. The Rage Spell is very useful with slower troops, like the Dragon.

Walls are a great building to upgrade when you have extra resources. It’s best to start maxing them from this Town Hall level on. Town Hall 7 is a sweet spot for farming and it’s not impacted very much by the loot penalty system.

The Laboratory upgrade order for Town Hall 7 is:

  1. Archer
  2. Barbarian
  3. Wall Breaker
  4. Dragon
  5. Rage Spell
  6. Healing Spell
  7. Giant
  8. Wizard
  9. Healer
  10. Goblin
  11. Balloon
  12. Jump Spell
  13. Minion
  14. Hog Rider

The Archer and Barbarian are your core farming troops because they’re cheap and fast to build. The upgrade at this level improves their farming potential and lets you raid more efficiently. We recommend putting them first in your TH7 upgrade order.

The Wall Breaker is another important upgrade at Town Hall 7. The upgrade lets the unit break through stronger walls with less units. Most walls that you’ll face in battles will require 3 Wall Breakers to destroy but only 2 of the upgraded Wall Breaker. This will free up space in your army that can be used to bring other troops. The extra space can be used for damage dealing troops, tanks, ect.

Dragons are an extremely powerful air unit at this level. It will be your primary unit for wars and trophy pushing. We suggest upgrading the Dragons right after your core farming troops so that you’re prepared for wars early on in TH7.

The Rage Spell and Healing Spell are both very useful at this Town Hall level. You’ll be using both of them frequently in farming, wars and trophy pushing. You should upgrade the spells after your primary units.

We really enjoy using the Giant for farming. It helps you break through stronger bases and cuts down on the time you have to spend searching for a base to attack. Even though we enjoy using the unit it’s not required for farming. This is why it’s lower on our upgrade list.

Dark Elixir troops (Minion and Hog Rider) are the lowest on the list because we feel they’re not worth the cost at this level. Dark Elixir is hard to come by and we’d rather see you use it for upgrading your Barbarian King.
