Farming is one of the most popular Clash of Clans strategies and numerous top players used it. However, you can always improve your techniques and that is why we have prepared a couple of tips that should help you have successful attacks without losing too many troops.
The armies we will show are some of the most efficient ones when it comes to farming if your Town Hall is at level 8. These troops work for any player that has this Town Hall, and the number of trophies is not important in this situation.
Remember that you should only use these troops for farming, as they might not offer you good results for another kind of attacks. The reason why we have made these choices for your army is that you won’t have to waste a lot of time and resources to create them.
Top troops for farming in Clash of Clans
When you are farming in Clash of Clans you want to be able to attack quickly. Therefore, you should look at the troops which don’t require a lot of time to be made. Additionally, you don’t want to spend a lot of resources on these troops, so you should look at the cheapest ones.
We analyzed all the options for you and we have concluded that the quickest and cheapest troops are the barbarians, the archers and the minions. If you use these troops you will have both ground and air attacks, which can come in handy. It is very important to combine them when you are attacking another player.
How many troops?
If you have a Town Hall at level 7 you already know that you have 170 free slots in your army. One of the best combinations that you can make for farming attacks is 80 barbarians, 60 archers and 30 minions. In order to get these troops, you will need to wait just 8 minutes.
For both barbarians and archers, you can use the regular barracks. They both require regular elixir, which can also be found in tree trunks, trees and bushes. Minions are made in the dark barracks, and it orders to make them you will need to use a dark elixir. You don’t have to use any gems for these troops.
How to use them?
Once your troops are ready you can add another 80 barbarians, 60 archers and 30 minions to the queue, so their production can begin while you are still attacking your enemy. Now that you are finally prepared, it is time to begin your attack.
Don’t attack the first base you see; it is important that you find a base which has a lot of loot available. While you might spend some gold during the search, you will get it back during the attack. Look for inactive bases which haven’t collected their loot.
If you can, find players who have their loot placed outside the walls. Once you find such a base, you can attack it. First of all, if there are collectors outside the walls you should use a wall of barbarians to get all the elixir and gold from them. Behind that first loot of barbarians, you should add another wall of archers.
Now that you got the easy loot, it is time to get the rest of it. Use your barbarian king and some barbarians to destroy the walls. Use a healing spell for this stage. Once the wall is destroyed add some archers and barbarians. Try to use them to destroy the air defenses. Use healing spells when they are needed.
Watch the attack closely and see what are the places where the barbarians and archers have failed. Now it is time to use the minions, but you must be careful. Place them in areas with no air defense. Minions can also fly inside the walls and get the loot from there.
