- This storage allows you to save your hard earned Dark Elixir. It is used to buy and upgrade the Heroes, purchase Seeking Air Mines, and to train and upgrade the new Dark Elixir Troops.
- The Dark Elixir Storage is a transparent, rectangular-shaped building. It is stated that this storage had to resemble a cube due to the Dark Elixir’s power.
- 5% of the total Dark Elixir in the storage (up to 2,000) can be stolen by attackers, although loot bonuses/penalties may change this amount (see Raids).
- The Dark Elixir Storage building takes up a 3×3 space.
- Dark Elixir Storages remain fully functional while being upgraded, like all other Storages.
- Some people deliberately avoid getting the drill and just get the storage because it is much faster to raid for Dark Elixir than it is to collect it on your own.
- If a player without a Dark Elixir storage raids Dark Elixir, the looted Dark Elixir will not be stored and will simply disappear. It will, however, give credit toward the Heroic Heist achievement.
- Due to the low cap on Dark Elixir, it is sometimes difficult to tell if the Dark Elixir Storage is full; a level 6 Dark Elixir Storage with just under 40,000 Dark Elixir (almost enough to reach the 2,000 cap) is less than 20% full and therefore appears empty.
- Dark Elixir is the most difficult resource to obtain, with the possible exception of Gems.
- The Dark Elixir Storage is unlocked at Town Hall level 7, though the Dark Elixir Drill is not unlocked until Town Hall level 8.
