TH8 Farming Base – AirDrop – Flawless DE Protection

I have mentioned this TH8 Farming Base in the Ash’s layout collection page. Since many people find it hard to see this base on cocland, I have just decided to create an particular page for it.

th8 farming base

TH8 Farming Base – Airdrop – Features

  • Easy-to-get-shield: This base can easily attract weak attackers to raid Collectors and Mines around the base. They can destroy at least 30% of your base and give you 12 hour shield.
  • Well balanced protection for Gold and Elixir Storages. Each Storage is located in individual compartment and protected by all types of defense.
  • Dark Elixir Storage is located at the safest place. The enemy AQ can’t get the DE Storage until she breaks the Town Hall’s compartment.
  • Anti-Giants/Hogs/Balloons: The outer defensive ring of this base can stop any Giants/Hogs and Balloons attack. They will go around the base, trigger Giant Bombs, Spring Traps and Air Bombs. It also can easily stop any Giant-Healer attack since the inside Air Defenses protect the outer ring. Also, because of the distance between defenses, instead of breaking into the core, Hogs and Balloons will always travel around the base.
  • Anti-Dragon: Three-cornered Air Defenses can make sure that you will not get bullied by Dragons. They will be separated and go around the base.
  • Anti-Wall Breaker: WBs just can’t open more than 1 compartments at a time because of the T-Junctions around the base.
  • Semi-centralized Town Hall and Clan Castle.

I will write a detailed explanation for this layout soon! That’s great If someone can help me improve this post.

    • Will Potter

      Thank you Cali! Yes, for sure. At TH8, definitely we should use anti 3 star base at for trophy pushing xD.

  • Bruce Gipson

    Love this base. Best layout for TH8

    • Will Potter

      Thanks for the feedback Bruce!

  • VogniR

    Generally this base is really good. I was attacked most of the time since i had a lot of free time and farmed like crazy so almost always had big amount of loot in storages.

    • Will Potter

      Awesome. Pretty impressive. Thank you very much!

      • VogniR

        Also forgot to mention that i had 3-4 defensive buildings uprgarding most of the time, and most of the time even with high % they took only 1/2 or 2/3 of resources

        • Will Potter

          Awesome!

  • Juni

    this base is the best for DE protection for TH 8 in my opinion.. thank you so much for the author and cocland.. xD

    • Juni

      defense logs, and i always had 3-4 defenses on upgrade.. so yeah, this base really is flawless..

      • Will Potter

        How sweet! Thank you again!

        • Juni C

          sorry if my question is not supposed to be posted here, but do you have any recommend war base for TH 7, 8 and 9 Will?? thank youuu..

          • Will Potter

            Hi Juni,
            All bases you can find on cocland are the best. You can use any of them!

    • Will Potter

      You are very welcome. Thanks for using this layout xD.

  • Adam

    This base looks good, but I still think I kind of like MEGACube more. It’s still kind of easy to get giants and stuff to go into the middle as there is no recourse ring, I don’t really understand what you mean when you say they will go around. This base does look pretty good though!

    • Will Potter

      I meant they would go around the base, through the outer defensive ring. Thank you very much Adam!

  • Freddy Ordoñez

    Hello! I would like to learn how to attack this kind of layout. Im TH8 with decent army but i have lvl 2 Hogs :(. Any idea? Thank you, guys!

    • Ayush Kumar

      My personal opinion- 7 dragons rest hogs with 2x light, 1x earthquake and 1 heal spell. deploy dragons from eastern side take down 1 ad with zapquake and use hogs to take down other ADs

    • Will Potter

      Hi Freddy. You just can’t 3 star this base without Hogs. Otherwise you can use GoWiPe for an easy 2 star win.

      • Nicky Ung

        go wipe could take this down easily but you need witches wich would help allot in this base

  • Paru Rai

    How is this farming base

    • Will Potter

      You should place your DE Storage inside mate.

  • Paru Rai

    And this raid composition
    Its normal giant attack but rather amplified in strength by pekka.
    I used it yesterday and got success in it . I got plenty loot and pushed to gold (1480 from 1290) yesterday
    So here’s my composition : 20 giants 1 pekka 15 wiz 7 wall b and a barb 3×heal and a poison
    So what I do is barb is for luring troops (since my dark baracks currently under construction). Then giants and wall breakers. Then wiz to clean up to funnel pekka into core and release pekka and b.king. Wiz also are useful to help giants clean up defence fast. I use heal when needed and that’s it .

    How is this strategy for th8? I am new just unlocked pekka and upgraded giants and wizs only.

    • Will Potter

      Hi Paru,
      Definitely this is a small version of GoWiPe. It does work but require lots of time and Elixir to train.
      Thank you very much for sharing tho!

    • Oupal

      I’m also use similar strategy to hunt DE but never use pekka because it’s too long to train. better train healer, archer, or another wizard. healer will make your giant survive so you can save space for rage spell and archer will help you clean trash building with cheap costs.

  • Paru Rai

    Here another replays of it

  • Ayush Kumar

    Now I truly accept that this farming base is good.

    • Will Potter

      LOL

  • Ayush Kumar

    What about my this war base ? It worked pretty good for me, in its first war the opponent first came with dragon attack- 2 stars, then gowipe- 2 stars and then finally a th9 came and with his GoHogs he 3 starred.:-(

  • Moyamoya

    Tried this base and just got 3 starred first shot by a strong gowipe.

    • Will Potter

      Are you upgrading something?
      Are you a new TH8?

      Also, since this is a farming base, it just can’t protect your loot against War army compositions, which are made for getting 3 stars.

      • Moyamoya

        Not a new TH8. I have 83 walls left to upgrade and then I’m maxed. But it definitely was a war composition army that just rolled right through me. Then again, all of the attacks against my base are by some type of war army and usually TH9 with archer queens. Thanks.

        • Will Potter

          How about the other defenses logs? Are they all okay?

          • Moyamoya

            Solid 2 stars every time and my dark elixir gets completely taken. I think the main problem is that I’m in crystal league and up against a bunch of TH9’s. They don’t bring farming armies. They’re bringing straight war armies with pekkas, golems and the works usually. I’m gonna drop trophies and just finish upgrading my TH8. Cheers.

          • Will Potter

            Okay so that’s why you always get ripped :(.

  • Riday Shah

    Hello,i am a great fan of your bases.I try to keep all the points you use it for making bases,and i have made few th8 bases by myself and till now,no one has been able to take my de with raiding troops. it has defended attacks -th9s GIWIWA.th8s gowipe and Hogs.The base works great against drags too.Can i share my base design with you? so that i can get to know the cons of my base and improve my base.
    Happy clashing! 🙂 i have been following you since i was th5,great job.

    • Will Potter

      That’s great If you can post the base layout to here Riday! Cheers!

      • Riday Shah

        Here are few bases i have made.I try to make base which acts as a fortress and all storages gets the protection of every defs.i know it is not as good as yours but this base works great. ??

        • Will Potter

          Pretty solid! I really want to see your defense logs mate! Thank you xD.

          • Riday Shah

            These are the past few defs about this base.the other base i haven’t used it for a while.will post defs of other bases asap.

          • Will Potter

            Nice. Thank you very much!

        • erzaScarlet

          can i try this base? thank you

        • erzaScarlet

          • Will Potter

            Pretty nice tho!

          • erzaScarlet

            yes it is. im using it till now

      • Riday Shah

        Amd this is my best base for de.most th9s with giwiwa fail.giants will circle the whole base and those spring traps are super effective.the only bad point about this base is the ads and few other storages which is not much protected.i hope you like these bases.please tell me about the changes i should do to make these bases even more better.

        • Will Potter

          Wow it looks pretty solid. You should adjust the DGB placements a bit. Can you share the defense logs please? xD

  • Nightwriter

    I’ve been using this base for some time now, and it has held up well against ground attacks. However, every dragon attack against it has been a 3-star attack. I have max air defenses and teslas.

    • Will Potter

      Thanks for the quick feedback mate!
      Can you share some defense logs here? I really appreciate it!

  • Manse

    Do you have your skeleton traps set to air or ground?

    • Will Potter

      Hello Manse,
      I usually set them to ground as I don’t get attacked by Air Troops much!

  • RezzyX

    Whats a t junction?

    • Will Potter

      Basically, T-Junctions help you prevent Wall Breakers from opening more than 1 compartment at a time!

  • Nguyễn Minh Ngọc

    Hello,
    Where can i place Archer Queen when i go to TH 8.5?

    • Will Potter

      You can replace her with your King buddy!

  • Sokol Avdyli

    Hello is this still working with the latest updates?

    • Will Potter

      Yes of course! It is still working like a charm!

      • Sokol Avdyli

        but there are no double bombs how it will work against mass-hog attack?

  • Олег Семенов

    With the new big update – can you tell, where to put new Bomber Tower in this base plz?!
