February 2024 Update – Patch Notes

February Update – Full Patch Notes

The first major update of 2024 for Clash of Clans is here! We’re introducing a brand new Spell, new levels, balance changes, QoL improvements, and much more in this update. Dive in below for the full details of what’s in this update!

New Spell: Overgrowth Spell

With the thawing of winter comes the sudden verdant bloom of spring, and Overgrowth Spell is here to usher in warmer weather…and your Troops into the enemy’s base.

Unlocked at Town Hall level 12 when you upgrade your Dark Spell Factory to level 6, this Dark Elixir Spell opens up whole new paths of strategies (literally)! When used, Overgrowth Spell renders enemy Defenses invisible, invulnerable, and frozen for the duration of its effect. This means attacking Troops will completely ignore Buildings and Defenses affected by Overgrowth Spell, allowing new ways for you to funnel and path your Troops!

However, Overgrowth Spell will not affect Heroes or Troops in the Clan Castle, nor does it prevent Clan Castle Troops from emerging! One additional detail is that Overgrowth Spell leaves tiny bits of debris that can be cleared by defending players when you tap them, like tombstones left behind by destroyed units. 

  • Effect type: Area Splash
  • Targets: Ground & Air
  • House space: 2
  • Brewing time: 6m

New Levels

Although we’re introducing new Defense and Troop levels for Town Hall level 16 players, they aren’t the only TH level to get new upgrades.

Town Hall 16 players can now also upgrade an additional 100 Wall segments to level 17 (a total of 250 Wall segments).

The Blacksmith will now be upgraded with Elixir instead of Gold.

New Hero Equipment: Haste vial & Hog Rider Puppet

We’re also adding two new pieces of Hero Equipment for Royal Champion. She was feeling left out seeing all the other Heroes packing some sweet Hero Equipment.

Hog Rider Doll

  • Unlocked at Blacksmith Level 7
  • Summons a team of Hog Riders to fight alongside you

Haste Vial

  • Unlocked at Blacksmith Level 8
  • Increased movement and attack speed for a few seconds

Clan Chat Improvements

Admittedly our Clan Chat was a *bit* outdated, so we gave it a visual and functionality upgrade. You’ll now have a more enjoyable overall look and experience! 

Pinned Messages

  • Chat and system messages can now be pinned to the top of the Chat view.
  • There is also a new tab dedicated to pinned messages.
  • Only the Leader and Co-Leaders can pin a message.
  • Messages can be unpinned.


  • Players can now add emoji reactions to another player’s message in Clan Chat!
  • You will be able to pick an emoji from the preset selection available.
  • Reactions and the amounts can be seen under each message.

  • Progress Bars have been added back to the info screen.
    • The bars display progress towards the highest level achievable for that Town Hall level.
    • Celebrations from Reddit were heard around the globe.
    • World peace has been achieved. 
  • Upgrade buttons have been clarified to use a specific Resource or Magic Item in order to reduce accidental usage of unintended Resources/Items.
    • Tapping the button for a specific Resource or Magic Item will allow you to spend only that specific Resource or Item when upgrading.
    • Rabid fanfare from Reddit measured 7.2 on the Richter scale. 
  • Attacking troops can now walk through Decorations & Obstacles when in combat (except in Clan Capitals). 
  • Decorations don’t prevent deploying troops on them anymore.
  • Players can play in a Friendly War and in a normal Clan War at the same time (in two different Clans)
  • If a Clan War ends in a “perfect – perfect draw”, neither clan loses their Win Streak
  • Bypass cooldown when setting up a Legend League defense layout after merging defenses
  • Leaders and Co-Leaders can now see the “last seen” timer for members up to a month (was up to a week)

Balance Changes

With great power comes the responsibility of balancing that power! Here are the balance changes for this patch:
