I have put dragons to upgrade to level 3 in the laboratory. Is it possible to train dragons during this time?

  • You didn't try training them?

    @Jerry, this kinda upgrade will take something like 3 days in game. If you were to find it was a waste of time training some dragons at level 2, as you'd then need to retrain them for level 3 after the lab completes, you'd be annoyed. The question is valid. Commented Aug 5, 2015 at 14:05

    @djsmiley2k I believe this edit of yours changes what OP was asking about Commented Aug 5, 2015 at 14:25
  • The user wanted to know how the act of upgrading effects currently training units..... or at least thats how I read it? Commented Aug 5, 2015 at 14:45
  • @djsmiley2k Uhh, the trained lv2 dragons automatically becomes lv3 once your lab completes the upgrade. If you have never tried it, then do it. It is actually something that a player can take advantage of. I usually put lots of troops that is about to be upgraded in my barracks (they are being trained by the way, this is what the question is really about) and take me resources. After upgrade, I remove them from the barracks (I don't let them come out) and make a profit in resources because I am taking back higher level troops. Never tried that either? Well, do it.

Yes, you can train a unit even if it is currently upgrading in the laboratory.



Once the unit is upgraded in the lab, ALL of those unit will become the new level.

    also, if you queue a load of troops in your barracks which are being upgraded in the lab (with full camps), once the lab upgrade is completed, you can cancel the queued troops and receive a refund for the higher level troop cost! Free Elixir!

Yes, you can train the unit even if it is upgrading. When the dragons are done upgrading, all the dragons in your army camp and barracks training will level up.


To actually answer your question, yes.Even as a unit is upgrading, you have the authorization to train in your barracks. However, until the upgrade is complete you will only have the current troop level.Once the upgrade is complete,you have your troop upgraded and you will be able to use it at that level.
