Clash of Clans Dragon Upgrade Cost and Time [LIST]


Dragon in Clash of Clans is one of the most popular and powerful troops in Clash of Clans.

Currently, there are 9 levels available for Dragon in the game.

Often, players get confused about the upgrade cost and corresponding upgrade time of the Dragon.

To fix that issue, I've decided to come up with this article.

In this article, I've listed the upgrade cost, cumulative cost, and upgrade time of Dragon in Clash of Clans.

I did all the required math so that you don't have to!

So, without any further ado, let's dive right into it! 

Dragon Upgrade Cost and Upgrade Time in Clash of Clans

All the data regarding the upgrade cost and time of Dragon is listed in the table given below. 

I've also written the data in text form so that it is easy to read and understand.

Following is the required table:

Dragon level Upgrade Cost (Elixir) Cumulative Cost (Elixir) Upgrade Time
1 to 2 1,000,000 1,000,000 18 hours
2 to 3 2,000,000 3,000,000 1 day 12 hours
3 to 4 3,000,000 6,000,000 3 days
4 to 5 4,500,000 10,500,000 6 days
5 to 6 7,000,000 17,500,000 8 days
6 to 7 10,000,000 27,500,000 14 days
7 to 8 15,000,000 42,500,000 16 days
8 to 9 18,500,000 61,000,000 18 days

The data in the above table can also be interpreted as: 

  • Dragon of level 1 can be upgraded to level 2 by spending 1,000,000 Elixir and 18 hours of time.
  • Upgrading your Dragon from level 2 to level 3 requires 2,000,000 Elixir and 1 day and 12 hours.
  • Level 3 Dragon will require 3,000,000 Elixir and 3 days of time to get upgraded to level 4.
  • To upgrade your level 4 Dragon to level 5, 4,500,000 Elixir and 6 days of time will be needed.
  • Upgrading level 5 Dragon to level 6 will require 7,000,000 Elixir and a total of 8 days.
  • Upgrading Dragon of level 6 to level 7 will need a total of 10,000,000 Elixir and a time period of 14 total days.
  • Level 7 Dragons require 15,000,000 Elixir and a total of 16 days to get upgraded to level 8.
  • To finally max out your Dragon, that is, level 8 to level 9, it will require 18,500,000 Elixir and a long period of 18 days.

The 'Cumulative Cost' column in the table can be used to keep track of the amount of elixir that is being used for the upgrades.


In this article, I've listed the upgrade cost, cumulative cost, and upgrade time of Dragon in Clash of Clans.

I'll also update the data in this article if any numbers change in the game in the future.

Now, I'd like to hear from you:

What's the current level of your Dragon in Clash of Clans? Have you already maxed it out?

Or, you might have a question.

Either way, feel free to let me know by dropping down a comment below!

I've also written an article in which I've listed the upgrade cost, cumulative cost, and upgrade time of Golem in Clash of Clans. You can read it here.
