4 star troop leveling and Food management and Feeder management

We all know leveling a 4star troop can be extremely costly. Im concentrating on taking one of my 4star troop to higher levels. I have multiple mana troops from the same color.

Im planning to have one of the troops to level 17 since i have an average hero who has a talent grid with 2% mana and then start working on the next one to 23.

I have hundreds of 1star feeders and decent amount of 2 star and 3 star feeders saved

I would really appreciate your thoughts on how to make this more efficient in terms of food and feeders.

  • Is there a point where its better to stop feeding 1star troops to the higher level troop (I have mine currently at level 12) and save them for the 2nd mana troop?

  • When is the best time to use the 2 star and 3 star feeders

  • How much food do you have to store in TC20 to keep up with Troop leveling

  • Is there a spreadsheet or a chart for troop leveling guidance.

  • What are the best practices

Many thanks in advance for your thoughts and support.


There’s a guide here that explains troops in details. I think it may answer a majority of your questions.


Thank you for sharing the post, it is a really good and well organised post for the basics of Troops! I did came across that post couple of months ago but i couldnt find anything about efficient feeding for troops! I want to hear others how they manage 1star troops more efficiently, how did you do your troops?

Thank you in advance

This one does cover the leveling cost and food required per level.

I have this question as well. It’s so expensive to level troops that it’s tempting to use my 2 and 3 star feeders, but surely I should hold them until a higher level. But what level?

That’s exactly my biggest concern and the reason for this post! Hoping for someone to shed some light on the situation.

I typically use 1* or a combination of 1* and 2* until the troop is almost at the next level. Then I use 10X 3* and 2* to get as much XP as possible using the previous level’s ham cost.

Oh that sounds like a good strategy!

Thats what i was doing but seems like we loose more when going back to 1 star in the next stage. for the moment it seems good but its going take more food and less progress when we go back to the 1star feeders :roll_eyes:

I’m going to close this thread but refer people to the thread linked within for further discussion.
