Been lurking around the forum for a few days and just registered. I've been playing CC for about 42 (log-in) days - really enjoying it! I've gotten about 11k free gems through Tapjoy offers and haven't spent any money on the game yet.
- Succubus - lvl 80+ (just upgraded) - 1/5 flame guard
- Paladin - lvl 80 - 2/5 flame guard
- Champion - lvl 70 - 2/5 revive
- Executioner - lvl 77 - 2/5 revitalize
- Pain-Da - lvl 78 - 1/5 war god
I've eaten everything else to level up my heroes' powers.
Troops: Mecha Man - lvl 4 / Griffin - lvl 3
Town hall - lvl 11
Army camp (x 4) - lvl 12
Hero bases (x 5) - lvl 12
Gold vault max: 850k / 4 mines - lvl 12
Mana vault max: 600k / 4 mills - lvs 10
Walls - lvl 9
2 Magic towers - lvl 4 / 1 Cannon tower - lvl 5
It seems obvious to me that I'll need to score a Druid to move up to play with the big guns of CC. I don't plan on paying for a Spirit Mage. I'm going to have to save up some gems for refreshes.
What do you think of my progress so far? How can I improve?
That's pretty good considering you didn't pay for any gems. I think I am just unlucky w/ shards; I've played almost 40 days and only have 700.....I don't really farm them though, but I wanted the 1k shard achievement so I could go ahead and spend them on slimes to get my Hero skills up.

druid isnt that great for arena. mediocre dps and the fight is usually over before druid heals. ni ...
I have no idea how you came to this conclusion. Druid is probably the best Hero in the game. I can near solo raids with him; I have to send in troops due to his DPS.
In Arena, Druid is usually the last one standing and is essential to any Head to Head. My Druid is usually the last one standing, and so many matches I've won was because my Druid was able to tank and then heal itself to stay alive. Sure in a DPS race, Druid would lose but essentially support characters aren't DPS'ers anyways.
Congrats Shardless, you've proven that you could go a long way in this game even without spending a dime. That's what I plan also, to go further in the game with as minimal monetary investment as possible. That's the challenge I put myself to hurdle. And you're quite lucky to have gotten 3 legendaries considering you haven't purchased any gems!
Another way to do it place a weak def when u are online, then win most your arena battles. U net around 170 to 180 an hour. I'm at day 37? With a 98, 73 and around 8 lv 60 heroes o help and to hose. I keep anything with a useful 3/5 skill, u never know when a patch will suddenly change circumstances.
Drawback is I'm floating on 6k+ might with measly lvl 2 towers and most buildings aren't even lv 10.
But I'm enjoying the 8k triple shots out my only upgraded hero pod, lv 13 with the 98 archer. It has a better chance of stopping those solo druids of late esp with her explode. 26% on a hero pod does a lot on a high lvl hero.
