TH 9 3 Star Clan War Strategy

We are going to examine a bit of TH 9 War strategy as well as how to get the all important 3 stars. Some players agree that TH9 is one of the funner Town Halls to play. Given the large variety of attack methods you can use to get 3 stars. So instead of focusing on only one TH9 strategy, I’ll list a few and explain several different tactics as well.

  1. Golem, Lava Hounds & Loons
  2. AQ Healer Combo + Hogs, Valkyries and Golem

Golem, Lava Hounds & Balloons

This is a fantastic hybrid attack. Although you may find it quite tough to use due to the amount of units. The idea is to start with Golems and Wizards along with the your Heroes to destroy the Air Defenses. Keep in mind, you also need to take care of the enemy Clan Castle troops.
 
After that it’s a basic LaLoon attack. Use the Lava Hounds as tanks, then deploy the Balloons behind them. Throw your Rage and Haste spells in their path. Enjoy watching them demolish the defenses with their splash damage. Keep a few archers to start clearing the remaining buildings left by the Balloons.TH 9 3 Star Clan War Strategy

AQ + Healer Combo

This is a cool attack that can even be helpful at TH 10. The Archer Queen and Healer attack is strong at most levels, not only TH 9. But at TH 9 along with enough healers, the Archer Queen can wipe out the whole side of the base. She can clear a path for the Barb King, Golems and archers to dive into the core. Use Hog Riders to destroy defenses from the sides. Finally you should have some archers (about 10) to Snipe any far buildings there might be. If your AQ gets too low on health, throw a Rage spell on her and the healers to help keep her alive. But don’t be a derp and use her ability too early.

The Sniper – Archer Attack (Guide)

So you’re looking for Farming bases that keep the Town Hall outside when all of a Sudden, you get a Dead Base full of Gold, Elixir and even Dark Elixir. But the troops you have are minimal, used to Snipe Town Halls and not for looting Dead Bases. Well here is where you become a Sniper! Read more for details about Archer Attack methods.

The first thing you want to do is NOT panic! As long as you have a few archers you’ll be fine. Start by using the 30 Second Rule and assess the base. Ask yourself which pumps or mines can be reached safely with an Archer Attack? Then look at where you should focus the waves of troops most Effectively. Try to stay away from Mortars and Wizard Towers.

Here are the tactics you should use when you’re limited on troops, but want to get as much Gold, Elixir and DE (Dark Elixir). After deploying a single Archer and Sniping the distant Mines. Locate the other mines and pumps furthest from the Mortars and Wizard Towers. I repeat, Stay away from the Wizard Towers and Mortars. Deploy 3-5 Barbarians first and follow them by 7-10 Archers they will be able to destroy a pump or mine even if there’s an Archer tower or Cannon in range.

When it’s time to getting loot that’s close to Mortars and Wiz Towers, here is when it gets a little bit more nerve racking. Use the same strategy as above, by deploying a few Barbs first and spreading the Archers out in case they get targeted. This way they don’t all get killed by a single shot. Deploy more Barbs before the first wave dies to keep the defenses occupied and not kill your squishy Archers. Since you’re low on troops, only deploy enough to get the majority of the Loot. Only attempt to destroy the building if it will get you a win, otherwise use the remaining troops to target another pump or mine.
