After several failed attempts to get the Gold and Elixir I needed to max out my storage, I started to try different times of the Day and Week to see if I get different results. I was able to narrow down the Best time to farm.
During these times I would be able to find Dead Bases more frequently as well as a lot more Slightly Dead Bases. The difference between the 2 types are basically, Slightly Dead Bases are ones that are active, but haven’t collected their resources for more than 12 hours.
Dead bases are more like “Abandoned” bases. They usually have the Gold mines and Elixir pumps completely Full. Their traps are never armed and the Clan Castle is always usually empty. These are what we will be looking for when farming.
I found that attacking on a Tuesday or Wednesday to be the best time to Farm and find Dead bases. Saturday and Sunday finished in last place as far as Farming goes. These are the days of the week most players are either at work or at school. So they wont find the time to collect the pumps.
As for the times, it didn’t make a huge difference. It all depends on when they were last attacked and how long their shield was.
So try these days for Farming and you will see the results for yourself. Of course a good Farming tip is to always Gem your Barracks when you start and try to dedicate at least 2 hours for attacking. Always be prepared by taking all of your troops with you. A good combination is Archers and Barbs, about 50/50 of each. Don’t forget to have your CC filled as well.
If you find yourself low on Gems, you can use the different achievements to get gems. Don’t bother with the sites that offer “Free Gems” or “Gem Hacks”. They are all Fake!
