Where to farm based on your town hall level?

Firstly before I begin my guide I would just like to thank neggs for making this website and creating many interesting and intelligent guides that have inspired me to make some guides of my own. I have found many good bases off this website and without him I would have not being exposed to much of the information that I know today.
But letís get back on track

If you read my clash of clans high level trophie (trophy*) attacking guide you would know that I was going for trophies and at a certain point it gets very hard to keep progressing. I ended up peaking at 2300 trophies before switching back to farming again. When I decided to farm I chose to go at around 1400. However, I have farmed at just around all trophy ranges and the best one depends a lot on what town hall level you are.

50-200
This is a decent trophy range for high town hall 8ís. There is where many high level farmers live and they usually have a ton of loot. Unfortunately there are not many low town hall 5-7 just high level farmers and new players. One bad thing about this trophy range is that it is very hard to stay that low. When farmers win several attacks and defences then they will purposely drop one troop and surrender to lose trophies. This however creates a pattern of farmers constantly dropping troops which will ultimately cause you to do the same or just push up into the next place.
TH: 5-6= 4/10
TH: 7= 6/10
TH: 8 = 7.5/10
TH: 9-10= 8/10

300-900
This is a little bit of a no-manís land for me. Being a town hall 9 I donít much good loot and mostly just TH3-6 which I canít attack for the loot purposes. For TH5 and 6 however it would be quite good and would probably be the idle place to farm. The only reason I would go here is if you are a low level TH farmer or looking to take a break as you wonít be seriously attacked much.
TH: 5-6= 8/10
TH7= 6/10
TH8=3/10
TH9-10= 2/10

1000-1200
Brilliant for TH7ís and early TH8ís, this is the ideal place to farm as it has many TH7ís with good loot here and many inactive players who have 200-400k in their mines and pumps. It is also satisfactory for high TH8 and above as they can get large loot from the mines and pumps and not be seriously attacked often. However this is the highest I would go for TH6 and lower as it would be hard to take the TH7+ís around you.
TH5-6= 4/10
TH7=9.5/10
TH8=9/10
TH9-10=7/10

1200-1500
Probably the highest you want to go for it to be considered ďfarmingĒ this is the best farming range for high TH8+. This is because there are many at the same level as you and still many abandon bases with 300k+ from the mines. There is also not many TH6 and below so it is easier to find loot. It is okay for TH7ís but you may find yourself being seriously attacked more often. For higher town halls leaving your town hall outside your walls will protect you from any serious raids as you will get a free shield from people destroying it. However, at this point it is too high for TH6 and below.

TH7= 7/10
TH8= 9/10
TH9-10= 9.5/10

    I dont agree with 1500 being the highest you can be as a farmer. I am currently at 2500 and the loot is great. im getting 250k g and e with about 2k de every 15 min with 70 barbs and 150 archers (I am th 9 and though i get picked on up here the loot is worth it.

    i would go to 50-200 to get some of those farmers but that is a little too low for me because i would be probly making my clan lose trophies. im going to try at 1200-1500 and see how it goes. P.S. im TH 9

    Please PLease PLease IceFire help me, I still need help, Im TH7, intending to put up my TH upgrade in 3-4 days.
    I used to enter gold-3, loot TONS of dark elixir enough for 2 or 3 weeks's minions (also got my barb king in gold-3), and return to the 1100-1200 trophies range for gold/elixir. Now since the new update, I cannot find Dark elixir anywhere from 1300 (silver-1) to 1500 (gold-3) where I used to get 7-8k in 2 days. I am REALLY REALLY getting short of dark elixir, and cant find good loot anywhere. Please recommend me a trophy range where I would get dark elixir enough to upgrade my level-1 barb king to level 4 or 5. I dont care the least bit about gold and elixir, I have far more of both than I need.
    Thanks

    Thank you for your guide! Nice work.

    But i face the same experience like jellyfish: With my early TH8 is is really hard and time-consuming work to find an interesting goal in the range between 1000 - 1200.

    Anyway, with the new loot update, do you think farming at the range suggested still works?
    I'm a th8 and i couldn't find much good loots (abandoned bases) in the places mentioned.

    town hall 8 no matter where you are 1200-1325 tons of loot but it does sometimes take a while to find bases.

    Its true to find from the trophy range 1000-1200 to find people abandoning their mines and pumps since i experienced it . i was going up and i have town hall level 7 as i saw in that level a town hall level 8 abandoning his base with his mines and pumps full of loot!

    A high town hall 8 could also farm at 2000 cups, mainly to max out Barb King.

    I agree with this guide as well. I'm a new TH8 (previously maxed TH7) and found my normal army of giants, wbks, healer, barbs and archers not well suited for the gold league ranges. I switched to the 100 barb/100 archer army and started attacking dead bases... now I'm wondering why I didn't do that before! The loot is great and I can attack several times an hour.

    Great guide!! Totally agree with your farming ranges. Im a TH 8 farmer, and my storages get full from 0 to 6,000,000 in 2-4 days!! Wanna know my farming range? 1480-1510. yes it may seem tight, but i get 200k of each on every raid. Use a simple 100 barbarian 100 archer army, surround the base with barbs then archers...with all the loot in the gold mine and elixir collectors. This is the BEST farming range for TH 8-9
