Aftershock – Maximum Dark Elixir Protection for Town Hall 9

Aftershock is a brand new Town Hall 9 Dark Elixir Protection base towards Crystals and Masters Clash of Clans players. Most Dark Elixir farming armies used in high leagues are GiWi, GoWi, GiWiVa and other variants of them. This base works extremely well for almost maxed Town Hall 9 as it requires a decent level of defensive buildings for the core. Hopefully you guys will like this base! This base was designed and shared by Zegaloft.


Aftershock – Maximum Dark Elixir Protection for Town Hall 9


Anti-Archer-Queen-Core: I always like bases which have this features and this is definitely one of the most features all DE Protection Bases should have. This core directs the Queen away from the Dark Elixir Storage inside, she will go towards buildings nearby instead of the core.

Anti-Giant: This base has some stunning defensive rings, which lures Giants and other defense targeting units away from the core, they will go around the base and leave support troops and Heroes behind alone.

Anti-Wall-Breakers: This base works extremely well against Wall Breakers. Most of the time, after destroying the first Walls, Wall Breakers will target lone walls, they won’t go inside the core.

Resource Moat: The main job of this base is for protecting Dark Elixir. With a defensive ring between the outer ring and the core, support troops can’t dive into the core, your Dark Elixir Storage will be safe.

Troll Teslas will prevent attackers from sniping off buildings. These Teslas also work very well against unsuspecting Wizards.

Intimidation: This is a huge layout and a lot bigger than other ones. People who haven’t faced a similar base to this will be shocked and find it very hard to have decent spaces to deploy troops!

        It appears to be better than FORTRESS.

  • Bobby

    • Chained Chaos

      Lol seems like it :/

    • Ishmam

      LOL nice one there

    • Will Potter

      Nice find man!
      Looks like a glitch or something like that. I have no idea why the author of this layout did Photoshop it!

    • Zegaloft

      The most reasonable explanation is that it was captured while the percentage still racks up which happens after watching a replay. The logs were provided by a fellow forumer.

      PS: I don’t even know how to use photoshop.

    • IAmRC1

      zega is correct, if u see the base u can c the th is destroyed alongwith other buildings which constitute more than 50%

  • Daniel M. Ramos

    Hmm, vulnerable to valk attacks, that means it will get smashed repeatedly as that is the most popular attack method out there now. I will stick with my own design. It has been doing a good job. Valk attacks are brutal and popular and should be taken very seriously.

  • Pranjul Yaduvanshi

    i had reach the to DE with just giants and barb this base is not working

    • Will Potter

      Can you share the defense logs mate? Thank you a lot!

      • Pranjul Yaduvanshi

        okk but it took time to cool down the base so i will send tomorrow.

        • Will Potter

          Thank you a lot!

      • Pranjul Yaduvanshi

        • Pranjul Yaduvanshi

          fortress is good but we cant save other loot

  • Aaron Fukuoka

    Will do you have any th 9 farming bases you recommend, preferably a compact one. I’m one of those people who hordes obstacles from Halloween and Christmas so I can’t use this base (steps on my obstacles).

    • Will Potter

      Hey man! I am pretty sure that you can use all TH9 bases I posted on
      They are all great! Just look around and find the best one that fits for you xD

  • Rendy

    First defense…

  • I’d just like to tell you – this base is outdated now, and new versions have been made. As this has been took from the SC forums, I recommend giving the link to the post so that visitors can follow it and also to give credit, as simply mentioning the name isn’t enough!
