GoWiPe (A how-to guide for the Townhall 8!)

Getting your dark barracks to level 4 is exciting, and it also leads to some new and very powerful army compositions. One widely used Golem composition is GoWiPe. I will tell you how to use it as well as some tips to go along with it.

GoWiPe should be used when you have at least 200 army spaces, then you will be able to use it to almost its full capabilities. The GoWiPe army consists of (and this is based off 200 army spaces) 2 Golems, 13 Wizards, 12 Wallbreakers, 2 Pekkas, and 3 Archers. That is just one way you can create your GoWiPe army! You can have more archers, less wizards (although, that's not recommended, as GoWiPe's main offense are Wizards and Pekkas.) For spells, i would take 2 Rage Spells and 1 Healing spells. Other spell combinations include 1 Lightning spell, 1 Healing spell, and 1 Rage spell and various others, mostly for the higher Townhalls.
Here's some tips for your GoWiPe army composition-
The "Do's"-
-Do bring 2 Golems
-Do bring at least 10 Wallbreakers
-Do bring clan castle troops along with you
-Do always have at least 1 Rage spell in your Spell Factory
-Do have a Pekka in your GoWiPe army
-Do have wizards included
-Do bring along your Barbarian King also
The "Dont's"-
-Don't forget your spells
-Don't ever not train Wallbreakers or your attack will fall apart
-Don't use less than 9 Wizards

Now that you have your GoWiPe army ready, lets talk about how to execute your attack.
First off, make sure your spells are ready, your army camps are full, and its recommended that you have some clan castle troops on standby. I'd recommend taking along a Pekka, a Witch, or Wizards. Now time to choose your unlucky target!

1st, Find a base that will earn you back all the elixir you spent on your army. That is very important as it'd be pointless to lose loot from using GoWiPe, on the other hand, if you are trophy pushing and have elixir and dark elixir to spare, go for it!

HINT: Don't sweat the opposing clan castle troops, usually a well timed Rage spell on your Golems and Wizards will power up your wizards to take out the opposing troops. Some people might bring a Lightning spell to take out the clan castle troops. Also, don't worry too much about the opposing Barbarian King either, once again your wizards and your own Barb King should be enough to take him out. On the other hand, the Archer queen is more dangerous, your Wizards and Barbarian King can also knock her out. Make sure the royals and clan castle troops are eliminated!

2nd, Deploy your Golems in a fashion where they are separated from each other but still attacking the same side of the base. Then let your wizards out behind them to destroy outer structures for your Pekkas.

3rd, The attack has begun! Let loose most of your Wallbreakers and get those Golems in the base! At this point, the opposing clan castle troops should be exiting their clan castle and making their way towards your Golems. Also, at this point your Wizards should have cleared the outer structures and your Pekkas should have a path directly into the base.

4th, Now all your troops should be entering into the opposing base, now place a Rage spell on your Wizards, Pekkas, and Golems and they should take out the clan castle troops and any surrounding royals. If you brought a Lightning spell, time it and release it onto the clan castle troops.

HINT: I like to attack from the side that the royals are at, this lets me eliminate the threat very quickly after the start if the raid.

5th, Now that the royals and clan castle troops are gone, the base is ready to be demolished! Place a Healing spell on your wizards, as they get hurt significantly from wizard towers and mortars. If you brought 2 Rage spells, drop the 2nd one onto your Pekkas and/or Wizards and watch your troops wreck havoc on your unlucky defender's base!

    Good guide! Just a little different than I've been doing it (3 pekka\11 wizards) and the extra wb and wiz might help. Think I've been deploying my golems too far apart also.

    I find that for once I don't even have to bother with the clan castle troops with GoWiPe. They're literally between a rock and a hard place - they will attack the golem and the wizard can get rid of them.

    For my GoWiPe Attacks I like to use 2 Golems, 4 Pekkas(one in your cc), 6-8 wall breakers, and the rest wizards. Keep in mind I have 220 Troop space and 30 CC Troop capacity so adjust accordingly. For spells I use all Rage. the reason i use less wb is cause when raged, wb 1-shot almost any wall, so I really only need 4 or 5. But I like to have an extra in case a mortar hits one or in the end I need a wall smashed so my troops can pick up those last few buildings. I think 12 is way too many, especially for a th8.

    @Ninja_s It's all up to you, if that army composition works for you then go for it! I just suggested one, there are many other combinations you can use.

    I like this guide and adapted it to th9 numbers. I have been useing it in war attacks were I dont care about cost just want stars for my clan. It has been getting 3 stars againg mid to high lv.80 players, and two stars against low lv.90 players.

    2 golem (lv.2, lv.3 soon)
    2 pekkas (lv.3)
    13 wiz (lv.5)
    4 valks (lv.3) this adds more hitpoints instead of increasing wiz #.
    13 wb's (lv.5)
    7 wiz and 2 arch in clan castle

    I drop valks at same time and place as pekkas, as they seem to complement eachother very well.
    Thanks for guide.

    @kyle - make sure your wizards are minimum L5. Golems are effective from Level 1, although maxing them at L2 is optimal. The most noticable thing besides the obvious wizard firepower is Pekkas at L3 live much longer than L1/2 and can act as tanks once your golems die. You can get away with L1 pekkas... but I'd recommend at least L2. Personally I'll run this with 2 rage 1 lightning, or 3 rage. You'll want rage spells at L3 or better. More is obviously better.

    Personally I'm a maxed TH8. L5 wizards, L2 golems, L3 pekka, L5 rage. My army comp is:

    2 golem
    3 pekka
    12 wizards
    1 Barbarian
    8 wall breakers
    6 Wizards in your Clan Castle

    I like it! Also the thing with attacking from the side that the royals are in is that they will attract your troops and suck em in like a magnet, very good guide!
