share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

The Clash of Clans December challenges are now live for the popular mobile game.

This is the last big update that is scheduled for 2019, which is without surprise, the Christmas update brings Town Hall 13 along with it.

Clash of Clans continues to get into the holiday spririt with the seasonal challenges, introducing an entirely new track of reward of the Gold Pass, including a new Barbarian King.

Here's everything we know about Clashmas and the new season for December.


Town Hall 13

The Town Hall 13 theme is "Dark Elixir" and "Ice", you'll soon notice both elements through the entire village.


With this, you'll notice a darker palette than normal. Where Town Hall 13 turly shines is when the Giga Inferno gets activated.

To upgrade to Town Hall 13, you need to fully upgrade your Town Hall 12 (including the Giga Tesla). Upgrading the Giga Inferno increases damage and duration of the special ability.


Giga Inferno

Functioning similar to a multi-mode Inferno Tower, the Giga Inferno will target numerous attackers and will do damage over time.

Like the Giga Tesla, the Giga Inferno can be leveled multiple times. Once Town Hall 13 reaches zero Hit Points, the Giga Inferno will explode, dealing damage to any enemy units within range.

However, when you’ve upgraded the Giga Inferno to level 3 and up, the explosion has an extra bonus effect: a haze of ice will blanket an area surrounding the destroyed Town Hall, slowing the enemies down for a duration of time depending on the level of the Giga Inferno.

Finally, even the Grand Warden’s Eternal Tome doesn’t grant full immunity to the effects of the Giga Inferno.

While Eternal Tome may protect your troops from any damage that may be caused by the exploding Town Hall, it does not prevent your troops from being slowed down by the icing effect from the Giga Inferno’s explosive demise.


Special Ability Freeze


The Town Hall 13 still explodes, just as the level 5 town Hall 12, but this explosion has a special ability: a haze of ice will blanket an area, slowing down enemies for a period of time depending on the level of the Inferno.

This haze of ice can't be stopped by the Warden Eternal Tome.

December Season Update & Challenges

When purchasing the Gold Pass ($4.99) you'll immediately unlock the Jolly King skin.

The 2019 Christmas Tree special obstacles should start spawning once the Christmas update arrives. The Ice Wizard also return.

How Do Challenges Work?

There are two types of challenges: 3 daily challenges that are refreshed everyday and 24 monthly challenges that are unlocked every week (6 new challenges every week).


Season Challenges are automatically unlocked to all players with a Town Hall 7 or higher. You can access using the Season Challenges shortcut that is located next to the "Attack" button.

Completing challenges will reward you with a new currency called Challenge Points. These will make progress towards a challenges road, with 30 rewards on the road.

There are two Tiers of season challenges: Silver and Gold

The Silver tier is free, where as the Gold tier costs money to have but gives you much more in return.
