Castle Clash / November 12, 2016


Castle Clash Players, Welcome!

This is the official page for the GrayThieves Guild in Castle Clash (Android). Here is the quick summary:

  • We usually beat the level 3 boss in about 3 minutes. We only fight that boss (aka T3) now.
  • Please read our boss fight strategy guide and our torch battle page so you do the most possible damage.
  • Our daily boss fight schedule is:
  • MTThF and Sun at 22:00 server time (10p NYC time, 3a UTC/GMT). Check this timezone converter to figure out what time this is for you.
  • SATURDAYS AND WEDNESDAYS at 21:00 server time (9p NYC time, 2a GMT/UTC). It’s tough to find a time that works for most members. :(
  • Our Torch Battles are WEDNESDAYS and SATURDAYS at 20:45 server time, just before the Sun/Wed boss fights.
  • We ask that you donate 35 shards/month right now to fund our growth, while many guilds charge 100+ shards/week! Those shards aren’t lost, either – they become guild credits that you can use to buy flags and skip the cooldown after a boss fight round.
  • If you participate in a boss fight, we also expect you to throw in 20-100 shards depending on how strong you are. If you are a top player and you score the #1 slot, you’ll earn plenty of HBs and we expect you to kick in about 100 shards to help pay for the boss fight. Of course, if you’re hard up, you can make it up the next time.
  • We have flags! Get one or 3 in the Guild Hall under Flag. Gives you a 15% boost to gold and mana you earn on a raid. Use it like magic.
  • Need shards, gold, mana, XP, gems, heroes? Want to know how to design your base? See below.
  • These members are at risk for expulsion (not playing regularly, don’t show up for boss fights, and/or have not donated their share of shards after 30 days of membership) and should contact me: no one at the moment.
  • Boss Fights

    We are CONSISTENTLY beating the boss. Boss fights yield HBs if you participate, and they don’t cost you anything personally. Here’s our strategy on how to beat the Castle Clash boss fight. Shard donations power the guild, but we don’t want this guild to be expensive.

    Here Be Monsters

    It’s much easier now to earn shards with the “Here Be Monsters” minigame. Click on the swirling blue portal (above and left of your base) to start. This sends five waves of computer raiders at your base, and you earn a lot of XP (about 2x a typical raid, 2.5x a typical hard dungeon) and gold for each wave you survive. Like Arena, your heroes can be dead from a raid and still participate in HBM. Don’t worry, they don’t actually take resources and the only damage done if you get wiped is that you have to rebuild your army. Even heroes garrisoned in your towers get an equal share of XP from these battles. However, if your tower heroes are capped (can’t earn XP because they haven’t been upgraded), then consider pulling them out of your towers before starting the challenge because they will drain XP from the heroes who could use the XP.


    Flags are cool and we plan on ALWAYS having them available. Originally flags were 4x more expensive. Now it’s one flag per guild credit (you get one credit per shard you donate). A flag per shard is not bad; one Riches I flag would earn you an extra 15, 000 gold and 15, 000 mana on a raid that otherwise would net 150, 000 of each. There is currently a Riches flag hoard in the Guild so get one or three! (Click FLAG and then the “1$” button. If you have upgraded your guild hall, you can buy and store several.) Riches flags work like spells; just select it and click anywhere on the ground during a raid to get a 10% gold and mana bonus on your winnings. Just make sure you get some winnings during that raid. Apparently IGG is working on a “Troop Talent” guild benefit, so stay tuned for that.

    Tips and Advice

    Some quick advice:

    1. Don’t spend HBs on anything except leveling up heroes.
    2. Don’t spend gems on anything except getting new heroes. This gives a decent chance at getting legendary heroes (although I’ve never scored one).
    3. Primarily attack “blue tower” dungeons so you earn shards. Use shards to purchase legendary heroes. I like to attack weaker dungeons with heroes only so I don’t lose any time training new troops.
    4. Heroes are compared on this
