I am a Town Hall level 7 and have a Dark Elixir drill but no DE storage yet. I have collected 2k DE until so far.

Now I am about to build a DE storage which can hold 6000. I need 10k Dark Elixir for the Barbarian King. My present DE, the 2k DE my DE drill has generated, is stored in the Town Hall. If I build a storage, will this DE stay in the TH or will it be transferred to the storage?

Once you build a DE storage, all your stored Dark Elixir, except those in the Clan Castle (Treasury), will be…

…split between the Dark Elixir Storage and the Town Hall in a 4:1 ratio, which means that the Dark Elixir available from the Dark Elixir Storage itself is four times greater than that available from the Town Hall.

Dark Elixir is not stored anywhere until you have a dark elixir storage. Reference : http://clashofclans.wikia.com/wiki/Resources#Dark_Elixir So I'm sorry to say, but your dark elixir has probably been lost.

Edit: Apparently I overlooked this section : http://clashofclans.wikia.com/wiki/Town_Hall At the resources available section, it shows that TH7 can store 2500 dark elixir. The dark elixir should be safe, the TH acts as a secondary storage, no dark elixir should be transferred.

  • But TH 7 does show 2500 DE storage. It shouldnot be lost... Commented Jun 25, 2016 at 11:56
  • Where are you reading that? The elixir you raid from town halls doesn't mean that the enemy actually has elixir stored in their town hall. Another question has this answer : [link] gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/141857/… Commented Jun 25, 2016 at 12:00
  • When i click my TH , it shows it has de storage in it. I ll upload a pic here.. Wait... Commented Jun 25, 2016 at 12:03
  • So 2.5 k DE will be safe right? Commented Jun 25, 2016 at 12:07
  • It should be... odd, I've never remembered seeing this when I played Clash of Clans. Commented Jun 25, 2016 at 12:07
