Welcome to my first guide on clash of clans, within this guide I am going to explain the best trophy ranges for farming and some explanation of all the town hall levels, this guide is made by my own personal experiences and also with help from members of my clan. So...Lets Get Started,

Town hall level 2-When you are town hall 2 you are still very new to the game, so you will want to just upgrade a couple of things and move up to town hall 3 as there are a few more upgrades at that town hall.

Gold and Elixir-100-250

Town hall level 3- Town hall 3 is still not a big part within your clash career however you have unlocked the mortar and you will have 50 walls.You want to make sure you have built the mortar and upgraded all your walls to at least level 2 before you move on, you will also be able to upgrade your cannons to level 4 before you move on and ln .nn .make sure they are at least level 3 before you move on.

Gold and Elixir-250-400

Town hall level 4- You are now advancing in the game and you would of unlocked the air defence and you should really be striving to rebuild the clan castle so then you will be able to join a clan and receive some good troops you will also be able to upgrade you laboratory to level 2 so you will be able to upgrade all the troops you have unlocked to level 2, this will benefit you a lot when you are raiding.

Gold and Elixir-400-550

Town hall 5- You are now progressing through the game and you should of built you wizard tower and 3 cannons and archer towers and you will have 100 walls that are upgradable to level 5 WARNING: DO NOT UPGRADE TO TOWN HALL 6 UNTIL YOU HAVE COMPLETELY MAXED OUT TOWN HALL 5 OTHERWISE YOU WILL REGRET IT WHILST YOU ARE TOWN HALL 6

Gold and Elixir-650-750

Town hall 6- If you have been following this guide so far you will know that you should be max town hall 5 so you should be able to fly through town hall 6, if you have rushed to town hall 6 you probably would be regretting it but don't rush anymore, you are still able to catch up if you rushed to town hall 6 but it will probably take 1-2 months.

Gold and Elixir-850-1000

Town hall 7- At town hall 7 you will be able to get Dark Elixir and you will be able to unlock the first hero, the Barbarian King you will want to unlock him and get him to level 5 ASAP you will also be able to unlock the dark barracks and you will be able to get them to level 3 which will mean you will be able to train valkyrie.

Gold and Elixir-1250-1400

Dark Elixir-1600-1750

Town hall 8- At town hall 8 you are really into the game now and by this point you should have all your walls to level 6 at least, also at town hall 8 you will unlock the dark elixir drill that you are able to upgrade to level 3 which will help you greatly at saving up for dark elixir troop upgrades and levelling up your barbarian king you will also have unlocked pekkas and golems which is going to allow you to access a new attacking strategy called GoWiPe(Golems, Wizards Pekkas)

Gold and Elixir-1480-1500 (I know that this is a small range but it is awesome i got 6 million gold in 2 days their)

Dark Elixir-1800-1850

Town hall 9- You have now unlocked the Xbow! You have are also able to purchase the Archer Queen which is the second and last hero, you can also max a lot of defences here, you should enjoy town hall 9 because you can easily get to masters and farming is fun at town hall 9 as long as you haven't rushed to town hall 9 you want to max all the defences and get your walls to at least level 8 before you progress to town hall 10, you are also able to unlock the witch which allows your to attack with the strategy GoWiWi (Golems, Wizards and witches) and you will also be able tl unlock the new troop lava hound.

Gold and Elixir-1600-1750

Dark Elixir-2200

Town hall 10- you have now unlocked the inferno tower but if you have rushed you town hall you will probably be suffering a lot right now just trying to catch up at town hall 10 you are nearly at the end of the game but that means then that you don't need to farm anymore! You can push as much as you want.

Gold and Elixir-2400-2500

Dark Elixir- As high up in trophies you can get!

Thanks all for reading this guide and I hope it helps!

    The trophy tagets in realtion to TH is a bit unrealistic, as it seems like the loot really is a moving target. Somedays it's in Silver, others it's in Crystal. Prehaps just experimenting with your trophies and finding the loot range that's best for you, depending on what you're pushing would be best.

    Ya I reccomend staying down in the 1200-1400 range and go for inactive bases with full pumps. 

    I'm almost a max TH8 from 1 month down here

    Sorry Puuhevonen, but that sounds like a terrible way to play the game. It's incredibly rushed, and I LOVE to push on bases you just described. That and you're missing the hole in there that if and when you have loot in your base before you go offline, you'll be wrecked. And when you're up at the TH8 area, you need tons of Loot in order to make your upgrades, so unless you only have 3 or less builders going at a time, you need to raid a lot to keep all 4-5 builders busy at all times. The only way you can protect your loot with that strategy is to Not have any loot...

    That and the fact that it's harder to loot at the higher TH lvls, so what's the point of getting all the way to TH9 if you're going to have to non-stop raid to build your base up practically from scratch. I say that the maxing base strategy is the best policy. Especially when you have the same chances of getting 3 starred by the same TH's you three star, simply because your base is poo. I DON'T recommend the Rushing strategy for anyone who wants to be good at this game.

    On a related note, we all know it's much harder to loot at Th8, but I've had great success lately in the 1350-1400 range. And I'm not sure if being in Gold3 matters at all while you do this, but I've been getting 200-300k of each resource in this range.

    puuhevonen I agree with you on most of that but you should have your walls one level lower than your townhall atleast

    I disagree with this quide. Not with ranges, but how it is best to progress. For any active players who are raiding most of their resources, number one principle is to rush town hall up to level seven. That is, you must have continuosly town hall upgrading! Then you may take few weeks with town hall seven, but as soons as you have maxed out your troops and you have done all your elixir upgrades, then upgrade your town hall to level eight, so that you get level five troops.

    Then there are more choises. Town hall eight is reasonable good for farming and there is lots to do. So it is probably best to stick awhile there. But as soon as you are confident that you can farm for Queen and X-Bows and level six troops then immediately ugrade to town hall to level nine. Queen and max level Giants, Healers, Hogs and Balloons are just superb! And they improve a lot of the productivity of your farming because you are now able to raid any TH-9 that has good loots available without arduous searching for opponents.

    There is no need to rush to TH level 10, because all new additions are mostly for defences or very expensive troop upgrades such wizard level 6.

    So basic princible for active players. Always upgrade your troops and town hall first. Then when all camps and barraks are upgraded you may start upgrading defenses. Walls are the most irrelevant until TH-9. At TH level nine, the upgrades are so expensive that it is better to farm single resource at the time and put other resource into walls.

    I started about a month ago with second account and I rushed to TH-7 with only one level 1 cannon (and two level 2 Teslas!). And that plan worked brilliantly. You can farm resourses up to million and little more just by staying online. And when you are going off-line make sure that you have emptied your resource storages.

    This strategy is especially good in Clan Wars as clan gets weaker opponent and you can raid any TH-7 with two or three stars!

    Great post, both on content and structure. Easy for me to find info pertaining to me as a maxed th9. with that said, to the people who are disagreeing with the ranges stated here.. keep in mind that loot is fluid. It can transfer and shift through the economy, generally in an upward trend. these ranges are a good general guide for where you should be not exact science. Also, keep in mind the time of farming matters. If you're farming after a 1 gem collector boost period then loot will be more prevalent than say, after an update where lots of new things have been released as people tend to buy them.. just FYI. Great guide!

    Good guide. It could use some grammar checks, but other than that it is pretty solid. Check out the base I am using right now for TH 8 farmers!

    This is a good guide, but where you should be in trophies isn't right or wrong, this is just this guys perspective on where you should be according to your th level, some people prefer to be at a higher trophy count, like some th 7's like to be in crystal, for me (th9) I like to be in Gold 3 and I do well there, I get lots of good loot and no one takes my resources because not many down in gold 3 can take it, so it's not where you should be at you th level, it's just a suggestion of good places to be

    There are some things wrong, like rushing TH2. You also should use hogs instead of GoWiPe.

    to be honest with you, i farmed in crystal I as th7 and the loot was AMAZING!!!! I got about 3m gold and 3m elixir per day and about 10K DE if you add the bonuses as well, now as a the, i don't take the game seriously anymore, i just attack 2-3 times per day so i wouldn't lose my skills, i also test out the bases i create on this website, they are pretty solid though.
