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.

Farming Guide for Dark Elixir the Easy Way

Farming Guide

Farming for Gold and Elixir can be pretty easy in almost all Trophy Ranges. But when you are looking for Dark Elixir its a different Story. You will find it to be much more demanding in the beginning, but I will share this Farming Guide with you on how to Farm the easy way.

It used to be you can find a few bases with a good amount of DE in their Storage, Use a few Lightning Spells, lose some trophies and move on. My favorite was using the Revenge feature to find those high level Town Halls and Lightning Spell their DE storage.

The new update prevents Any Storage, whether Gold, Elixir or Dark Elixir to be lost due to Lightning Spell Attacks. So we mostly had to update our farming guides. There’s always the old fashioned Giants, Wall Breakers and Wizards Strategy.

The best and most current method for farming I use is to increase the league you’re in. You can easily get 100-300 Extra Dark Elixir per win if you can get to the Crystal League. Its also the best league to be in if you plan on farming for a while.

Getting there can be achieved by pushing your trophies to above 2000. Believe me its very doable even at Town Hall Level 7! Keep in mind that you will also get a lot more Gold and Elixir when finding dead bases when you are a lower Town Hall. The farming will yield more Loot Overall compared to higher level Town Halls.

I know you will be able to find this farming guide helpful. You should see the results in just a few days or maybe even sooner. Just stay persistent and try not to fall back into the lower leagues. Get the and stay there! I will have a Farming Guide with more specific methods. Like how to get 8 million Gold and Elixir Daily. Farming Guide for Full Dark Elixir in 3 days.

Dragon Attack Guide

All Dragon Attack Guide

The Dragon unit is the most dominant flying unit in the game! It can attack both air and ground troops. It has a huge amount of HP and does a ton of damage. With the latest Clash of Clans update from Supercell, Dragons can go as High as Level 5. So here is an All Dragon Attack Guide to help you adjust to the changes.

Looking at the current stats of the Dragon unit in the table below, we can tell that they didn’t really increase that much between level 4 and level 5.

clash of clans dragon stats

Not only that, but the new Air Sweeper building was added as well. The Air Sweeper is the new Dragon Slayer, and will wreak havoc if you underestimate there distance.

Many times do I see helpless Dragons being pushed back and Slowly flying back to attack. I have also seen them being pushed so far back, they attack different buildings. So for now I would advise against attacking with all Dragons, even at max Level.

There are always those bases that are perfect for an All Dragon Attack. Things you will look for are, low level Air Defense, that includes low level Air sweeper too. There are also the bases that have everything “clumped” together, that makes for an easy target for an all dragon attack.

Does this mean Dragons are useless? Absolutely Not! With the introduction to the Dark Spells Factory and the Poison Spell, Dragons are a must for the CC now. Especially in Clan Wars where CC troops are lured out and melted Alive by the Poison Spell. The Dragon will stand Strong and defend like a Champ.

Conclusion

The Dragons were slightly upgraded but have a new arch enemy. Supercell will most likely balance them out in the upcoming update. We will wait and see when Super Cell brings back the Glory for the Great Dragon unit or it will only be an excellent choice in CC.

Winning Clan Wars (Guide)

Why is it so difficult to win in Clan Wars? Well here’s an easy strategy that you can follow that will improve your Clan War record. Of course I only recommend it after I have used this strategy myself and my clan mates love it. It will take some synchronizing with each other and some planning. But once your clan gets used to attacking this way it will be second nature for you.

There are 2 main types of Clans that attack in wars. The clan that sets up a war when everyone is ready and eager to win, and then there is the clan that randomly starts wars. Don’t be that clan that starts war without proper planning. You don’t want to be the only one donating to the Clan Castles or having several players in the war not even using a single attack. Use the clan mail to give a heads up to your clan mates a day or two before starting the war search. This will ensure that they have enough time to remove themselves from war, maybe delay the Barbarian King or Archer Queen upgrade till after the war, or simply just having enough Elixir to donate some good troops.

After you have you are matched with an opposing clan is when the real difference between winning and losing comes. Always have a plan of attack! Don’t allow anyone attack without “calling” the base they are targeting. This will lead to high level players attacking low level player and low level villages attacking higher bases (going for Loot). In the end the outcome will be a disaster. So always have a plan of attack and set goals for your clan-mates.

Here is an example of setting goals that we use… Each player is encouraged to attack the opposing Town Hall that is 2-3 levels below them. So if I am number 4, I should try and attack number 6 or 7. If each player can get 3 stars on the assigned opponent, that will leave the top 2 or 3 bases. You pretty much won the war by now with multiple attacks still not used. Now your clan can go for the higher Town Halls for loot and use this to practice they’re attacking strategies without effecting the outcome of the war.

Finally if you have that one or 2 “Co-Leaders” that don’t follow these simple rules. Think about taking their “Co-Leader” status away from them. Try to build momentum when attacking and encourage everyone to participate, even the Low level Town Halls.

The Sniper – Archer Attack (Guide)

clash of clans Archer attack guide

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.

 

Trophy Pushing and the 30 Second Rule (Guide)

Trophy Pushing – 30 Sec Rule

Trophy Push like the Pros. Stop wasting your troops for no reason. Stop losing attacks and Trophies. Even if you’re still Town Hall Level 7 or Town Hall Level 8. You can get to Champion League without a problem. As a matter of fact you should Trophy Push to at least Crystal League before you get to Town Hall Level 9. Earn the Free Gems you need as soon as possible.

Here I am trying to reach Champion League to get more Free Gems and end up losing a few attacks right before I get there. If you ever tried Trophy Push to Champion it can get pretty tough towards the end. And if you have been in the same situation before, you know what I’m talking about. Little did I ever take advantage of this small detail that helped me succeed in getting my Free Gems quickly.

Clash of Clans gives you a 30 second timer when you’re searching for battles. Why not use the Whole 30 seconds to plan and analyze the base before starting the attack? Try this 30 second rule and see how much it will help you out. Don’t start the attack before it expires and just take that time to plan your attack. If you cant “win” the battle with at least 1 star, then simply move on to the next base instead of losing trophies.

When trophy pushing, try to visualize winning the battle within 30 seconds time limit, if you can, then start attacking the base, otherwise skip to the next base. Don’t risk losing too many trophies. Because every time you lose an attack, you will need to “1 Star” about 4 bases to make up for the lost trophies. You can see why the 30 second rule is so important. Make sure you follow the attack strategies and guides posted here.

Try this method when farming for Gold and Elixir too. If you’re not able to see yourself getting to the Gold and Elixir within the 30 second window, just move on to the next base. There are plenty of loaded bases during the weekdays. So plan ahead and don’t shoot before you Aim.

If you’re Town Hall Level 7 or 8, it’s a lot “cheaper” to find farming bases that leave the Town Hall outside. So take advantage of that and try to trophy push targeting those bases.

Higher League the Easy Way (Guide)

clash of clans league levels

Higher League the Easy Way (Guide)

Getting to a higher League has a lot of benefits. The most important is the amount of Loot Bonus you get. Another benefit is you will get higher level bases to attack and if you’re Town Hall 7 or 8 you will reap the benefits of more loot from bases higher than you.

Can you get there though if you’re still Town Hall 7? Of course you can. Just start by designing your base with the TH heavily protected. Believe me you will start getting Trophies just from defense wins. Don’t worry about your Storages. Since they have higher Health, you should use them to occupy the attacking troops while your defenses blast them away.

So try and position the Storages close to the outer walls, but within the range of your Mortars and Wizard Towers. You won’t lose much in resources if you’re a lower TH, but you will gain many Defense wins and get to the higher league faster, sometimes even overnight!

That’s the easiest and quickest way to get to a higher League. Take advantage of your Town Hall level. Lower Town Halls will be able to Loot more Gold and Elixir.

Don’t underestimate your defense! Even at lower levels, winning defenses is not difficult. Just focus on protecting your Town Hall. Try not to worry about your resources. You can get what you lose easily once you’re in the higher leagues.

Of course you can also get to the higher Leagues by Sniping Town Halls and winning battles. All you need is a few archers, maybe 5 per Town Hall, and some patience. I highly recommend this method only if you have some Gold to spare. you will have to pass up a lot of bases that don’t have the TH outside.

Be careful of Tombstones around the TH. That’s a sign that the Town Hall is booby trapped with Teslas and Bombs. If you’re in doubt just move on to the next base. Avoid losing battles unless you find a dead base. Then you can try following this Post on How to Snipe Bases with minimal troops.
