The way that Clash of Clans chooses to convey information about how much damage defense buildings output is bad. The current method of telling the user that a mortar does X dmg a second is pretty worthless since they fire much slower than once a second.

Where can I find a break down / what is the damage break down for how much damage these buildings do per shot rather than per second?

Sure, information on each level of the buildings would be nice but if that is too much I think simply providing the data for level one of each building would also work.

The Clash of Clans Wikia has a breakdown of all defenses and their damage rate per shot, including the splash radius where applicable. For instance, see this page for the Mortar.

At level 1, the Mortar does 20 damage per shot (= 4 damage/sec) with a 1.5 tile splash radius.

I don't want to completely reproduce their tables, but you can get an index of all the defensive buildings on this page.

  • Does the mortar do 20 damage to everything in the damage radius?

  • @Caleb, in my experience, yes. I often send barbs/archers up against mortar shots, and it looks like they take consistent damage regardless of where in the shot they are standing.
