Update: Pepsi and I think IGG has smurfed the smurfers, and now raiding an account that is linked to your own will bring in a fraction of the usual gold and mana. FYI.
Castle Clash pundits like SandSeven7 say that a “smurf” account – a secondary Castle Clash account that you farm for gold and mana – is a great technique for getting the resources you need when you need it. It makes sense: a lot of the resources in CC come in over time (mana, gold, HBs) with little or no effort. The grinding comes from shards and trying to advance fast enough to keep things fun. If you’re not concerned about fun, that account can accumulate gold and mana quickly. Too bad you can’t raid for HBs!
I haven’t tried this but it seems pretty doable. There are some downsides, though.
Getting a secondary account is easy – you just need another gmail account, and you can tap the gear icon in the bottom left to switch to it.
Once you do, you’re logged in like a brand new player. The idea is that you can build up this smurf account and raid it repeatedly for a wealth of gold and mana. If you get on the right schedule, you can raid it several times (each for slightly less) and then raze the base so that the smurf account has a shield for 8 hours. After 8 hours, you come back and raid it again. You could even disable your defenses by moving your vaults into the open, raid it, and then move them back.
The trick, of course, is that you need to be able to find the smurf account on a regular basis. We recommend you raid your smurf account immediately after setting it up — i.e., when it’s at the very bottom of the might rankings and thus very easy to find. Then you can log into the smurf account and return the favor from the battle log. The battle log refreshes often (24==48 hours?) so you have to keep attacking to avoid losing that connection.
Here’s SandSeven7’s video. He glosses over certain elements and talks about a number of other topics – if you have any questions just comment below and I will explain.
