Best farming attack set-up for Gold and Elixir

    (login to rate)
  • Jun 17, 2013 (52 months ago)
We all know how hard it is to collect and maintain a large stash elixir. Whether your a lvl 90 or a lvl 10, farming is a very important aspect to Clash of Clans. This section will cover two very cheap troop set-ups so you can get in on the goods of elixir and gold along with how to use them. Also a very helpful tip get a massive amount of resources every time!

By the way the troop set-up is set at 200

Troop set-up #1

7 wall breakers
50 Barbarians
50 Archers
86 Goblins

Optional: 1 Rage Spell, 1 Heal Spell, 1 Lightning Spell

Ratio: 1.4 wb/10 barb/10 archers/17.2 gobs

How to this set up:
Send about 3-5 goblins to each gold mine or elixir pumps. Then send about 15 barbs as meat shields to bait the defenses and then use however many wall breakers it takes to knock down the first wall then send 15 goblins if resources are in there. Then send all barbarians then followed by archers to destroy defenses then send in your goblins after the archers and barbarians penetrate the area of the loot your after. Then when every troop has died you should be sitting with a nice pot of gold.

Troop Set-up #2

7 Wall breakers
10 Giants
50 Archers
86 Goblins

Optional: 1 Rage Spell, 1 Heal Spell, 1 Lightning Spell

Ratio: 1.4 wb/2 Giants/10 archers/17.2 gobs

How to Use:
You send about 3-5 goblins to each mine or pump outside the base then you send all of your giants to distract outer defenses on the first layer then you send in wall breakers to blow a giant hole leading into the inside of the base were the storages are. Then send archers to deal more damage to the to the defenses and distract them as well and then send the rest of your goblins in to completely loot the place dry of all resources.

The Tip:

This is for very patients players who are willing to zip through at least 40-50 villages to find one.
What you look for are villages that have there pumps and mines stuffed to the brim. The biggest give-away when you find one of these is when the gold and elixir amount are nearly equal in amount of gold and elixir or are a flat number with a massive amount of loot with none of which are in the storages. (Hint: Be very careful when you try this on a guy with a Town Hall lvl 9 as the four storages may appear "empty" even though they may have a lot in them.)

Here is an example:

EX: 450,000 gold, 440,000 elixir, 350 dark elixir or 234,456 gold, 240,234 elixir

I hope you guys get the point of this and I hope this guide helps. Comment for any questions with variations or if you want a how-to guide to something that I have not covered yet.

Thanks for Reading!

    I use 20 Giants, 20 Goblins ( can be more ), 20 Archers (can be more) and 4 wall breakers (can be more) I use giants to destroy splash defense like mortars and wizard towers then the archers are there to back the giants up. After those mortars and wizard towers are gone goblins are free to take most of the resources without taking a lot of damage. Right now I have 200 housing space and I have 20 Giants, 50 Goblins, 30 Archers and 10 wall breaker standby in camp. Use the reserved troops if necessary to minimize your expenditures on elixir. For the spell use lightning to take out enemy's CC troops and healing to help your Giants

    He sent the goblins just to clear the mines and collectors out from the outside of the village.

    I don't know how well this works. I myself use two army builds, one for just destroying a village and getting all the resources and one strictly for getting at the resources whether they are in the collectors or the storage's.
    1st build (these builds use only 190 troops)
    1 healer, 12 giants, 6 breakers, 25 barbs, 45 archers, 34 goblins. I don't like using spells because they take away from the gold you get, but I always have 2 lightning and 1 rage spell (lightning is for clan castle troops). This is the build I use to destroy villages and it works rather well. I use my breakers sparingly and giants to take out most if not all defenses while the other troops clean up the other buildings.
    2nd build (still 190 total troops)
    8 giants, 8 breakers, 134 goblins. Still 2 lightning and 1 rage, used the same way. This build is mainly for collectors and mines but I have broken into villages before to destroy the storage's and take everything I can. The giants are a great distraction while the goblins rush the resources. Also an easy way to tell if mine or collectors are holding a decent amount of the available loot is just send out a few goblins and test the water. If the loot drops drastically, get as many of the mines as you can.

    The 1st build cost 50k-60k depending on lvl of troops, but that has not stopped me from sitting pretty with 8 mil elixir in my storage's and enough gold to have defenses constantly upgrading (currently lvl upgrading to lvl 11 cannons, which cost a whooping 3.2 mil). The truth of farming is you need to find what works for you and use it. My method or the methods above wont work for everyone. Play around with different army builds and find your favorite. My methods do however allow me to take upwards of 2.5 mil of each reasource (excluding dark elixir) a day. I took 3.2 mil one day though.

    Why do you send goblins before barbarians in your first attack strategy and before giants in your second attack strategy? I think one should send them in after the barbs/giants to protect them from splash damage defenses.
