DE guide BlackSambuca way

Hello All,

I play CoC for year now sometimes spent more or less time, as a Th9 I almost finished my Elixir upgrades, so now I need to focus on DE and Gold, I had quite good results with loot especially in Gold league, but as I want my Heroes done I started to look for some nice forum guide about De farming, and I just realise 2 things:

- Brandon's guide is really complex De guide but I doesn't have that much time to play due to life, work etc.

- UnitySharp guide is great but I want to earn DE not spent it for Minions

My Base and Heroes:

I'm Th9, all elixir upgrades in lab done expect Heal to lv 6, DE troops Hogs going to max lv in 10 day, Minions lv 5 and rest troop are lv 2. So what about heroes Barbarian King is lv 10 since TH8, AQ is just upgrading to lv 11 all what I wrote in here I tested already and had quite good results so far.


Action Plan:

I can't play a lot of hour/day but I am able to do raid log out than come back when army is ready and repeat this process few times a day, plan is to do 5/6 raids per day aim for 2k of De per raid
It should give me 10-12k of De per day plus I have maxed DE drill which will give me 4,8k of De per day as well, so
in total per day I will be able to get 14/16 k of De per day with 2 hours spent with CoC maybe 3h per day.


Trophy range:

As I'm TH9 I do advice to stay in low/middle C3 1900-2100 cups is my spot for my DE hunt. I try to get Th9 or Th10 with easy reachable storages,


So what to do next. (Army composition and cost etc):

I wrote that I can do few attack per day but can be online for longer session, so I found an army composition which is effective and allow me to get to core of the base where usually players keeps De storages,

4x Healer lv 4
16x Giant lv 6
10x WB lv 5
16x Wizards lv 6

CC troops:
I ask about Wiz or Dragon if anyone have spare one.

Training method time and cost:

For army I do first wiz as the are the most used troops than giants and wb sometimes when you find nice collector raid you will use wiz and giants rest will stay for another raid.

1/2 Barrack - 4x Wiz, 4x Giant, 3x WB, 1x Healer
3/4 Barrack - 4x Wiz, 4x Giant, 2x WB, 1x Healer

For spells I put 2x Rage and 2x Heal spell (Rage, Heal, Rage, Heal yes sometimes I use 2 spells or instead of one heal I do one jump)
Time - 1h 1m or 2h 30m with full spells
Cost - 174k of elixir plus of elixir for two spells 55k or 110k of elixir for full spells


Deployment method:

Giants spread close to that side where De storage or close to AD than line of wizards after them, Wb to break walls and when sides are clear I deploy BK with 4 healers after, Rage spell is used to heal giants and wizards and first rage I try deploy close to De storage or close to core everything depends from base difference etc.


How to maintain elixir enough for raids:

First of all this isn't the cheapest army composition and it takes time, so in one hour we will get 3000 elixir from one elixir pomp x6 in total 18k from maxed elixir pumps, plus 21k as a bonus from each successful raid in C3 that means we need to spent each attack 190k of elixir which is not covered, it's a lot but most bases which they have 2k of De they have nice amount of elixir and gold in storages.


Hope this introduction to my journey will help or motivate few of you as well. B.S.

    I'm a TH 10 farming DE at 2800 or -. The loot bonus covers my Minion cost. Primarily I look for bases that have at least 3,000 DE and if it does I also make sure it has 120k elixir to cover my loons and spells. I drop about 20-30 minions to pick off buildings to ensure 50% and then launch my main attack. Typically I use two rage one freeze and one heal, also one lighting for cc if needed. I do try and lure them out as I pick off buildings prior to launching main attack.

    In master two i search 10-20 times and always find a good base. I can raid once an hour doing this if I boost my spell factory. Bottom line, even with only 10 attacks a day I can easily farm 30,000 DE my collectors bring in 7,200. I don't loose it on defensive's either because I set my town hall out.

    If anyone want's to visit, start a discussion with me.

    A few grammatical errors here and there (i.e. "- Brandon's guide is really complex De guide but I doesn't have that much time to play due to life, work etc." at the top), but overall, a pretty decent guide.

    This is a good strategy, but it is way too expensive. I BARCHed my way through TH9, and it has been such a good strategy. With maxed out Army Camps(for TH9), you use 109 Barbs, 95 Archers, and 8 Wallbreakers. 4 heal spells. To split the troops up while training, do 59 barbs in one barrack(w/ 3 WBs), 50 in another(w/ 3WBs), while 50 archers in one and 45 in the last barrack(w/ 1 WB in each)....takes about 20 minutes
    Once you get the hang of it, you will enjoy this composition so much.

    you need to also account for being raided, but I do think that 2k DE might be a bit much, I am around 2400 trophies right now and I recommend barching for the drills of DE and that could get you anywhere between 2400 and 3600 DE depending on who you attack. It is also fairly cheap, reliable, and fast to train. I also use 4 lightning spells to make sure that I get that 50%! With this strategy I always seem to have a surplus of DE with my maxed drills.

    Not bad but 2 expensive I am a th8 but when I was th7 I got my king to lvl 5 de raided with barch a few wall breakers and rage spell if I needed. Cheap and fast to make very effective even if de is a lil more central. Then every few de raids id raid some normal elixer. Easy as that😆

    Im a th10. I almost have a 1 billion $ gold grab. I've just lately really realized how important de is and so now, I have almost all max def and im almost done with lvl9 walls. I've been farming for de in the 24-26 range because thats where a lot of th10s farm and thanks to that, a lot of de is left in collectors and also. When u start going higher and higher up into the leagues more and more people are willing to give up loot for trophies. So, the best way to farm de , for me, is when I have the time. Boost 2 barracks and 1 hero (whichever one is not upgrading) cook up a 120-120 ish barch army then go out and look for de raids. I get 2400 every raid. My king has 1 day left and i already have 185k de ready for him to go to the next level as soon as he is done. Thanks for reading this stupid long massage haha

    Nice guide! I can tell English isn't your main language but nice job with spelling and grammer. I am only th8 but I might try your strategy with dark elixir hunting.
