Elixir Storages undergo significant visual changes at levels 5, 9 and 10.
When initially constructed, the Elixir Storage consists of a stoppered spherical storage vessel supported by a pair of wooden stakes. The level 2, 3 and 4 Storages each add an additional vessel.
At level 5, the multiple small vessels are discarded in place of a much larger single storage container. The vessel grows larger at levels 6, 7 and 8.
At level 9, the two wooden support stakes are removed in favor of four golden yellow footings. The vessel's stopper is also replaced by a gray metal spigot near the base of the vessel.
At level 10, the four footings received spiked armor plating on each corner.
At level 11, the Storage gains a spiked metal band around the waist of the vessel.
The word "Elixir" comes from "al iksir", which is the Arabic word for miracle substances. Dating back to the third century BC, Elixir was rumored to change base metals into gold and prolong life indefinitely.
Troops running from barracks to army camps that pass behind a storage will be seen as a silhouette as they pass behind. NOTE: This only happens if elixir storages are upgraded to level 5 or higher and are half way or more full.
