I am Darklord from LP4 Hercules and this is my comprehensive guide to the BarbarianArcher Farming/trophy pushing strategy.

1. What is BArching?
2. Troop compositions
3. Trophy ranges (farming)
4. Strategy for farming
5. Strategy for trophy pushing



1. What is BArching?:

BArching is an army that consists of Barbarians and Archers that is multifunctional. Its purpose is to use a minimal amount of resources and time to train an army that is effective for use in around 20 minutes.


2. Troop compositions:

For the BArching strategy there is no set amount of troops that you should have. As it's purpose is to train a fast and cheap army you want to have half of your barracks training barbarians and the other half training archers.


3. Trophy ranges (farming)

With BArching the idea is that you want to find bases with exposed collectors and mines that have not been looted yet. The ideal cup range will vary depending on your town hall level. Town halls under level 7 it does not really matter how many trophies you have. Town hall 7 farming should be done in the gold 2-3 range. Town hall 8 farming should be done in the gold 1-3 range and town hall 9 farming should be done between gold 2-crystal 3


4. Strategy for farming:

The best way to BArch for resources is to place down 5 barbarians on each collector/mine followed by a few archers. If the base does not have a lot of uncollected resources but has very exposed storages then you want to spread out a few barbarians to distract mortars and then send in waves of barbarians and archers to where the storages are. Trophies do not matter if you are farming with this strategy but if you can get 50% or a town hall snipe it is recommended so you can stay in the trophy range.


5. Strategy for trophy pushing:

Using the BArch strategy for trophies is all about getting 50% 1 stars and town hall snipes. You want to spread a few barbarians around to attack free buildings followed up by archers. If you cannot achieve 50% just by taking out surrounding buildings then use your barbarians to distract defenses especially mortars and use the archers to pick buildings off the first layers in bases.


Hope this guide was helpful and constructive criticism would be appreciated. :)

    Great guide. I've been using this a while without knowing it was a strategy! My only issue atm is getting at the dark elixir without spending it lol.
    That's what brought me to the site, I'm looking for another farming strategy but it's really nice to know that here in gold 2 I can still use the barch strategy I've been using! Even up until gold 1? Really? Wow, that changed my mind about dropping trophies. Thanks!

    I find all sorts of bases to raid with this strategy. My best to date had 1million resources available with 450k of both gold and elixir in the collectors alone. Boy do I love finding these raids.

    400k means gold and elixir combined first of all, finding a good base is all about luck I am th9 in gold 1/2 and I have no problems finding 200-400k bases. I agree on the last point however. Note how out if thousands of people only 3 people complain. If you have a problem dont go blaming me because its not my fault.

    In my opinion, the guys who wrote this is an illiterate ass. I'm using this strategy in gold 2 as a th 8 and I NEVER find any 400k guys. Btw, using lightning spells along with the th snipe can get great de or going for exposed high-level de drills

    BArching works well for th 7-8 in silver 1 league. Actually any th that has archers would work. Silver 1 is probably notorious for full collectors. So you just have to have the placement skills to avoid be under fire from the enemy's defenses.(Use barbs as tankers if needed) Hopefull you all will try.

    Listen here Mr. Know it all. Gold 2 to crystal 1 is perfect for th9 as I am currently a low th9 and am using this method and I am finding 400k resource bases all the time. Second of all I clearly stated different ranges for the townhalls to farm at which are effective and did not state gold 2 to crystal 1 for lower town halls. Now if you would please remove your illiterate ass from my guide it would be greatly appreciated as I know exactly what I am talking about.

    As for the BA at the start of 'BArching' it is standing for BarbarianArcher which is then cut down to a catchy acronym and each capital represents a new troop.

    I'd like to start a very simple initiative. It essentially consists of no one ever saying "barch" again, it not only sounds freaking retarded, but is just extra letters on top of "BA", and for what? To annoy the hell out of me, that's what. Thank you for your cooperation.

    It wasn't very informative, and the farming is off. Gold 2,1, and crystal 3 DO NOT have the loot needed for low level th 9s and below.

    @TheSilentNoise I would probably say the crystal league in general and even masters as people usually only care about trophies and will leave storages all the way out
