WiPe: DPS oriented heavy ground attack.

Hello everyone,

First of all, this is my first guide. I haven't seen a guide on the wipe so far, even though I think it could be about as good as a GoWiPe or GoWiWi or anything in that order, so I decided to make one.

I am currently TH9, but I've already used this technique being a mere TH8. Both of these have Pekka lvl 3 and Wizard lvl 5 as maximum level, the only difference might be the 20 extra army spots. In my case, this is what the army looks like:

3 Pekka -> the main tank of the army. 2 would leave you at a mayor disadvantage, 4 seems like to much. (Should be level 2 or 3.)
27 wizards -> these guys are used for their high DPS. cutting out 5 of these as a TH8 isn't that big of a problem. (Should be level 5!)
10 Wallbreakers -> If you ever watch any youtuber use a heavy ground attack, they take 15+ wallbreakers. Pekka's can slice through walls quickly enough, so I think 10 would be enough.
17 archers -> definitely 5 to lure. The other 12 can be exchanged wizards or wallbreakers, but I feel comfortable having these for the heroes, and/or as a back up if I need a few more percent for that star.
1 Lightning spell -> If the Clan Castle is filled with archers or other low HP troops, 1 hit kill. can also be used to take down a hero's altar and/or builder's hut
2/3 Rage spells -> The main goal is to quickly grab your stars. Rage spells help Pekka's one-hit buildings and/or walls.

How to use it:

-1) Look at the defenses. Inferno's are quite the threat: Multi-set will wreck your wizards with ease, whereas a single target Inferno will finish your Pekka. Also, check the tesla's. 2x damage against Pekka means even a level 1 tesla will hit 70 dps.

0) Look at the positioning of the TH. The shortest way to it is not always the fastest, so try incalculating things that distract your troops.

1) Lure the heroes and Clan castle using your archers. Take them out using wizards and/or your lightning strike.(you could use Pekka, but I don't want to start an attack using 2 Pekka. I recommend training 4 pekka if you'd want to do this).

2) Drop one or two wizards and open the first wall.
2.5) take out any buildings that might distract your troops. Using some archers, or deploying another 7 wizards here isn't such a big loss, because having your Pekka walking around the village instead of into the village is the worst case scenario.

3) Deploy your Pekka. I prefer dropping them at once, as splash damage doesn't do much against 3500 HP. This also makes the first rage spell more effective
3.5) Follow up with all your wizards(unless you want to keep a few back up)

4) Deploy a Rage spell, and drop your wallbreakers in lines of 2. the pekka are now soaking damage, and enraged lvl 5 wallbreakers(if you have maxed the rage spell) can blow
up lvl 8 walls in one go. If you chose a correct path, the Town Hall might have 0 walls in front of it

5) Deploy your remaining rage spell(s). Using one where troops approach the Town Hall usually speeds the process of getting this star up. If you don't need to deploy these to get two stars, and you don't see a chance of getting three, leave them. Saves you time and elixir.

(6) If you are close to getting the 50% star, use your leftover troops on undefended buildings. If you still have your lightning strike, drop it pinpoint on an altar or builder's hut to destroy it.


So, this is how I use the wipe strategy. It should probably be able to carry you up to Masters, If combined with a good defense and regular attacks. I hope this guide was usefull. Any feedback is welcome, But just saying you suck won't help me. I'm curious to know how I did, so even if you think I did well, point out anything you would've done better/in another way.

    @mrsquinty this changes the tactic a lot, as you don't really have any defence targeting unit, but in essentials, it is

    yeah i agree blsater

    My GiWiPe army consists of: 2 lvl 3 PEKKAs, 15 lvl 5 wizards, 16 lvl 5 giants, 5 lvl 5 wallbreakers, lvl 5 barb king, lvl 1 archer queen, 2 lvl 5 heal spells, 2 lvl 4 rage spells, and now also includes 4 lvl 4 hogs (for luring cc troops).

    i lure the cc and heroes out. if cc doesn't contain wizards or dragon or something like that, i just send the giants and then wizards behind them, because they kill the cc and heroes while they attack the giants. if i try to kill them in a corner, i end up wasting too many wizards. after i kill cc and heroes, i send in one pekka to help clear outside stuff, and then send in my second pekka and my barbarian king to go into the center, so i can drop a rage and heal spell on them :)

    i kinda use the same strategy but i go for 1 Pekka 20 wiz 50 barbs barb king 10 WBs and the rest are archers

    well my troops arent really the same combo as urs but i do use the same tactic, first clearing the side buildings with barbs as main distraction and deploy the WBs to creat a clear path for the pekka and BK

    then the BKs rage after it a rage spell near the TH with healing for the barbs when needed and i leave about 5 wizards and 15 barbs for the finally AKA attacking the remaining defenses from both sides

    i take out the building huts and side buildings with 1 archer for every 2 or so if they r close

    but i only use this in the clan wars, i feel its too much of an over kill for anything else.

    @Co0lestcat It is. If you use all of your spells, making them again would take 2h 45m. An army can be trained in 1h 30m, if you have at least 2 lvl 10 barracks.

    @Jason Tan: yes, thanks for noticing.
    @Smexy: I said this will be able to carry you up to masters. This is the way I prefer my wipe. If the trophies are good with an unlurable CC, I'll take the risk, and have a rage and/or lightning for the CC, to clear them asap. But I do it during the attack.
    @neus947: Glad it helped
    @Mohab: I don't really know any attacks I'm good at, which don't currently have a guide. I might do one on base designs from my perspective, but I'm not quite sure.
    @Electral: Sounds like a good version, thanks!

    What if the CC is too centralized? An average CC in master won't be lurable with a few archers... you'd need ATLEAST giants. You could use wbs for like wizards, but if 25 archers need to come out, I doubt that'd work.

    Hi, at point number 2) you indicated to use one or two wizards to destroy the first wall. Is it a typo error? Did you mean wall breakers?

    I'm not even joking, I've been using this strat. I thought I was the one who came up with this lol. But my army is 10 giants, 10 wbs, 5 barbs, 5 gobs, 21 archers, 11 wizards, and 3 pekkas. Gobs are more handy with luring cc troops and heroes. Then the barbs archers can kill heroes. Then I drop my giants and some wbs then my wizards to kill the outside buildings since the giants are distracting. Then I drop my pekkas and remaining wizards, heroes, cc troops, rages to get 2 stars. ;) sry for the long message lol
