Clash of Clans Minion

In Clash of Clans the Minion is the first troop unlocked in the Dark Barracks. The Dark Barracks can be built from Town Hall level 7 onwards and allows you to train troops with Dark Elixir.

The Minion is the cheapest unit you can build with Dark Elixir and takes up the least amount of housing space at 2 per troop. The Minion is a fast moving, flying Gargoyle, with relatively low damage.

Minions are venerable to Air Defenses, Archer and Wizard Towers. It’s a good idea to take these out first before deploying your Minions. Due to their cheap cost and low health you can also use them to trigger air traps such as Air Bombs.

Wizard Towers can be particularly dangerous as their area effect damage can take out large numbers of Minions in one go. Single target aerial attack buildings can be taken with Minions if you have enough of them.

Apart from activating air traps, Minions are pretty useless individually due to their low health and damage. They work much better in large groups, where they can take down buildings fast. They also work well with other ground troops such as Giants.

To defend against Minions you should make sure you have your air defenses spread out throughout your base, protecting all of your ground based defenses. Spreading out your air traps throughout your base can also help.

The tables below outline the stats for each research level and the general stats applicable to Minions.
