Dark Elixir Drill and Storage Basic Information

Dark Elixir Drills are used to collect Dark Elixir that can then be stored in Dark Elixir Storages. The Dark Elixir resource was introduced in a December 2014 update and both the drill and storage can be unlocked starting at Town Hall level 7. Dark Elixir is necessary for creating and upgrading of some of the most powerful units and spells in the game via the Dark Barracks and Dark Spell Factory.

(In-Game Descriptions)

“Our Alchemists have finally figured a way to extract pure Dark Elixir, the rarest form of the magical substance.”

“The power of Dark Elixir could not be contained in a regularly shaped Elixir vat. As it’s three times as powerful, we had to invent a cubical form of storage!”

Dark Elixir is also used for buying and upgrading Heroes, which as of this writing consists of the Barbarian King and Archer Queen. The higher your Dark Elixir Drill level, the faster it can produce Dark Elixir for you. As for the Dark Elixir Storage, upgrading it will increase the amount of Dark ELixir you can store.

Dark Elixir Looting Tips

As the rarest and hardest to obtain resource, you can count on most players to place their Dark Elixir Storages in the middle of their base. This means that you’ll often have to use some powerful units to steal a decent amount of Dark Elixir. However, a lot of players don’t bother placing their Dark Elixir Drills behind walls or under the protection of defenses. Since you can take up to 75% of uncollected Dark Elixir from a drill, keep an eye out for drills that are full– zoom in on the glass box at the top rear of the drill.

Dark Elixir Defense Tips

Place your Dark Elixir Storage somewhere toward the center of your base where it will require a heavy attack to reach. Note that these structures take up a 3×3 space, which isn’t too large but can still force you to rearrange your walls if you didn’t design your base specifically for keeping a Dark Elixir Storage in the center. Note that as of a July 2015 update, Dark Elixir Storages at certain levels are completely immune to Lightning and Earthquake spells.
