How To Gain 1 Million Gold FAST (Without dropping any Trophies!)

  • May 17, 2014 (43 months ago)
First off, a small disclaimer:
This is my first guide, if there are any errors (spelling, grammar, etc.) Please dismiss them. Also, if you're looking to gain one million gold solely based off of this guide, you may have to rethink your intention. This guide doesn't teach you exact specifics on who and how to attack, but it does give some helpful hints. This guide will though, if followed correctly, fill up your gold storages by a million in a matter of a couple hours.

Also, I have tested out this plan multiple times, and it has had a 100% satisfactory rate for me, I am a TH8, and have only used this plan for TH8, based off of numbers and statistics, it should be able to work with any town hall given your flexibility.

Now, in to the actual guide to gaining 1 million gold in a matter of hours.

FIRST OFF: The Basics
As obvious as it may sound, if you want your millions, you are going to have to be active. Each Army (Which will be described in step 2) Takes about 20 minutes to 30 minutes to train. You will need to attack someone every time your troops finish training, so you will need to have access to CoC at almost all times. This strategy works PERFECT for long trips on a plane or in a car. Also, the more active you are, the less likely you will be raided.

SECOND: The Army
The army is probably the most important, or second most, part of this strategy. Your army may differ from TH to TH, but the basis of it all will be extremely similar. You will want to set up your army as follows:

MAX OF 7 GIANTS.

TEN BARBARIANS FOR EVERY GIANT.
(So if you have 7 giants, you will want 70 barbs)

6 or 7 WALLBREAKERS
(yes, wallbreakers. Trust me)

MAX OF 30 GOBLINS.

A LITTLE OVER DOUBLE THE AMOUNT OF ARCHERS FOR GOBS
(For example, I train 30 Goblins and 85 Archers)


IF YOU HAVE 200 TROOP SPACE (Like Myself) Here is a specific composition.

30 Goblins
85 Archers
7 Wall Breakers
4 GIANTS
51 BARBS
(I use a couple extra barbs for CC troops and Heroes)

This army will take about 26 minutes to train, giving you about two attacks an hour.
Another advantage, NO DARK ELIXIR. While gaining this gold, you will also see you DE Rise!
BEFORE ANY ATTACK Luer out any CC Troops and the opposing hero, kill them with spare archers and barbs. Then go for the real attack.
You will want to attack by first taking away stray buildings with archers. Next, do lines of barbs (Never put them in a bunch. After lining a side of the base with barbs, send in your few giants behind them. Next, the wallbreakers. This creates a huge shield for archers, which you will also put in a line formation next. Once the first defenses and wall layers have been removed, send in the goblins to start cleaning up the gold. LAST, your hero who will get backup scraps to get you that 50% star.

THIRD: Who to Attack

Yes, skipping bases costs precious gold, but it is worth skipping, especially because you are not looking to loose trophies, in fact you will gain trophies pretty fast with this strategy. The first and most helpful think that you need to do, SKIP SKIP SKIP. Do NOT attack a base that has 40K gold available, or attack a TH10 with max mortars and wizard towers.
For this strategy to work, you need to attack bases with a minimum of 95K resources you will be able to take. So lets say a 200K base comes up, and you know you can take at least half, go for it! Or maybe a TH10 comes up with 200K and its ALL in pumps and mines, maybe you're willing to loose trophies to get that gold even quicker.
When looking for your base, look for these things:

1) YOU CAN TAKE AT LEAST 95K GOLD
2) NOT HIGH LEVEL MORTARS OR WIZARD TOWERS (You're attacking in bunches, remember)
3) LOW LEVEL WALLS (Lower level the walls, the more your WB will do, and the easier for your goblins to get that gold)

And remember, most importantly, SKIP SKIP SKIP. The right base will appear.

FOURTH: THE MATH BEHIND THIS
I could sit here all day and tell you this, that, how, why, but it wouldn't be reliable unless i backed it up with fact, which in a game like CoC, fact is not just credibility but it is mathematical fact.

First off, you army.
The army listed above takes anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes to train, so for worst case scenario lets say that your army takes a half an hour to train.

This comes out to 2 attacks per hour.

Raiding: Your raid should gain you anywhere from a minimum of 95K Gold. Good players will be able to capture about 110K gold per attack, but lets use worst case scenario again, you gain 95K every attack. Plus, your loot bonus.
Lets say you're an average Gold 2, your loot bonus will be 8.4K Gold, so for every attack you gain 103,400K GOLD. You get two attacks an hour.

OFF OF RAIDS, you're gaining 206,800K GOLD AN HOUR.
Now lets take in to account the amount of times you skip to get this gold.
Lets say you loose an average of 5,800 GOLD ON SKIPPING BASES. (10 skips for a TH8)

THAT BRINGS YOU TOO 201,000K Gold an hour for your army.
YOUR MINES BRING IN 3K gold an hour, and you have 6. This is 18K gold an hour from mines.

WITH THIS GUIDE, WORST CASE SCENARIO YOU GAIN 219,000 GOLD AN HOUR.

WORST CASE SCENARIO, you will get 1 MILLION gold in 4 and a half hours (given you attack twice an hour)

Lets say you come across a base which you know you'll loose trophies, but 200K gold is available, you cut this 4 and a half hours down to around 3.
Now, if this happens you may wanna attack a farm base to get your trophies up.


CONCLUSION:
This strategy has worked numerous amount of times for me. Anytime I want to upgrade a defense or go on a wall-push, i resort to this guide.
If there's anything to take from this, take these points:

SKIP,SKIP,SKIP when attacking
BE ACTIVE, 2 ATTACKS PER HOUR
MAKE THE ARMY YOUR OWN. The army given is a starter, throw in some wizards, minions, whatever, make it yours!

Thanks so much for reading my first ever guide. This may come as common sense to some, but I just started doing it and it has done wonders for my base, so I thought i mine as well share my insight.

Thanks- SBS

    Srs for th 8 all u need is 100 archers 100 gobs both lvl 5 n stay in between gold 3 n 1 and u can get massive loot..my last raid i just made 350 of each. And 1000 de.. I used 3 lightning spells on that base cause the loot was in range of only 1 mortar and wizard tower.so I took those out n cleaned up..most battles i try not to use the lightning spells unless there is a lot of loot.. And by the way lvl 5 gobs rip through walls pretty quick so dont need wall breakers

    This Guide isnt that good really, Alot of people are smart with archers because they are really good, my TH7 is in silver 3 and im getting about 150k at the least from each raid, im using 185 archers and i boosted all 4 of my barracks, just refill everyraid an its non stop raiding! ive made 3mil gol and 1.6m elixer (bases tend to carry less elixer). and i always dont lose trophies cuz in silver 3 you can 3 star most bases with plain lvl 3 archers, you get all those people that arnt active and their collectors get full, this means max trophies each raid and a good loot, Better than 200k an hour. this only cost 40 gems for boosted barracks, 40 gems=2.5m plus gold... fine with me....

    This guide is okay, but i can make 1 million in like 1 hour...
    Sometimes i get a rival with 450.000 gold. thats just 1 attack.
    A little tip: Be around 1200 trophies, all who stopped playing CoC are down there. And the pumps are always full!!
    I'm doing that when i upgrade townhall, to make millions fast, to upgrade all defense (Y)

    Spells cost waaaay too much if you want to farm :)

    How about my troops? 40 goblins, 4 Breakers, 92 Archers, 50 barbs and 5 minions. (200 housing) I stole 85% of all my stolen loot with this troops combo. It takes from 10-15 mins to train, and I gain at least 1 million loot/hour. I also use 2 lightning spells and one rage spell. I stick at 1350-1500 trophies and go for 50%, I usually use lightning spells to take out a collector or anything like that, that's hard to reach. Also if you have 46% you can just easily take out a builder's hutt or hero's altar.

    I gain 3m everyday and what i do is just train 200 archers. Aim for 100k golds every attack. U will need like 30 times next button at worst. Otherwise one hour u should be able to get around 400-500k and 800k if u r lucky enough to find a good abandoned base. Try to stay in gold 1 or 2 leagues and with these archers u will always be able to get at least 50%. im th 9 btw. Good luck

    Agreeing with IronicNinja/Kotis, a million an hour is easy and I've only been TH7 a month. I use 1/3 barbs, 2/3 archers (17 barbs and 33 archers in each barracks) and that works perfectly. Takes less than 20 minutes to train (no wbs, which take forever) and costs 25k. You don't even need to use everything most of the time. I got a 900k raid a few days ago and I didn't need to use all my troops, CC troops or spells. Barbs for luring CC troops/heroes and taking Mortar hits, Archers to take everything. I'm still in Silver 1, so I'm only getting a few hundred DE an hour, but there's a lot of gold/elixir down here.

    I personally like to use barch with a few wallbreakers. This works for me but I really like your guide! It's still pretty cheap and you can get deeper into the base with it where the loot might be set in. I recently started using the wallbreakers to help with that but I still don't get all the way into the center like possible with this guide.

    if 4 hours is FAST, than you certainly don't know how to farm.

    when I was a TH8 I was able to max out all of my defenses and get 100 level 8 walls before I got to TH 9. And I certainly didn't waste HOURS to get a million gold.

    I use 4 wall breakers, and the rest is half barbs half archers. Now I have 220 spaces so I use 4 wb, and 106 of each of the two. plus heroes if necessary and some extra archers in the CC when necessary!

    This army is way more faster to train, I can raid more times in an hour and I do have to skip a lot. There are good days when I am able to get my storages full and there are bad days when I don't, but the good old abandoned villages always come up. I farm in gold 2/gold 3 and even the DE is not a problem, I never had to go on DE hunts, every raid gives me from 300 to 500 DE on average. Then there's the lucky th 10 with 3 full level six drills... got my hogs on level 4 on th 8, my king on lv 7 and my archer queen was done the minute the TH was finished upgrading.

    the key really is PATIENCE and skipping :)

    good luck everyone

    10 Skipås to find 100 K gold? are you living in a parallel universe? Or maybe stuck in time when this game was new? it was many months ago that you only needed ten Next to find 100 K gold loot. I kept statistics for the last week... In average 27 klick to find that much loot.

    I Honestly Prefer Using The BAG Farming Strategy, Its Cheaper, Faster And More Efficient. Basically Its A Collector/Storage Farming Army That Consist Of Barbarians, Archers and Goblins. If You Don't Want To Lose Trophies, You Can Simply Aim For A 50% On The Outside With This Strategy. BAG Can Also Fit In Wall-Breakers If One Wants To Farm On Storages And Can Be Used At Any Town Hall Level [Excluding Town Halls 1,2 and 3]. ~Frozen_

    OMG are you guys all idiots or what? I'm sorry but a million in 3-4 hours is just crap. I use 5 wb, 95 arch, and 95 gobs and it will give me a million in a hour. I'm also a Town Hall 8. And you're saying to waste 20-30 minutes with just 100k gold. If I'm gonna wait for 20-30 minutes, I am hoping for at least a 200k gold raid. Half the times I don't use the wb, so that's why my compositions are so quick. Also I want to see you make one for TH9. GOOD LUCK (:

    What would be a good troop combination if I had 70 housing space and can only build barbarians, archers, goblins, giants, and wallbreakers. Also, what does th stand for?

    PERFECT GUIDE BUT CAN YOU MAKE IT IN 135 TROOPS CAUSE THAT IS THE LIMIT OF MY ARMY CAMP AND BY THE WAY I RATED YOUR GUIDE 5 STARS

    Instead of skipping through bases when looking to attack I instead went through my defenses and attacked the people that attacked me, its free to look at their bases and I got more gold instead of losing some when skipping bases.

    i noticed that my dark elixir did rise when i was farming for gold to get enough for my cc upgrade to 5, i went from around 8k dark elixir to 20k dark elixir, and i was just looking for gold!

    Nice guide. The army composition is quite good, and the amount of gold to settle for is also nice. I prefer going for 125k , which seems to boost my income/hour.
