TH9 Farming Base – Arcanum

If you are looking for a stunning TH9 farming base layout, I’m pretty sure that you will like this one, a cool base with the labyrinth style!
I am a big fan of labyrinth Clash of Clans layouts style because they are pretty beautiful and most attackers are very confused while attacking as well as can’t predict traps and unexpected funnels.

So here is Arcanum, an unique farming base layout for Town Hall 9 by mattyy!

th9-farming-base-arcanum-1

TH9 Farming Base – Arcanum Features:

  • Balanced Resource Protection for all Storages.
  • The unique continuous ring can easily redirect all defense targeting troops (Giants, Hog Riders,…) around the base and through traps in stead of going into the core. This unique style can anti-Jump in most cases.
  • Anti-Archer-Queen core: The enemy Archer Queen can’t hit your Dark Elixir Storage unless all outside buildings get taken down. Definitely this is one of the most important feature that must be added in all farming bases.
  • Centralized Clan Castle = very difficult to lure troops out. If you want to use this base layout for pushing trophy, simply replace the Dark Elixir Storage with the Clan Castle.
  • Anti-Earthquake Spells. No matter how many Earthquake the attackers use,they can’t change the pathing of the base.
  • Air Bombs don’t protect Air Defenses to counter Lava Hound strategies and deal with Minions as well as Balloons.
  • Looks sexy.

How does this TH9 farming base layout work?

Arcanum can easily split a large number of Giants and Hogs. The white lines in the screenshot below denotes the pathings of Giants/Hog Riders. As you can see, a group of Giants can be split, hit by lots of defenses and trigger as many traps as possible.

As I mentioned at starting, it is extremely hard to predict traps in this base layout. Sending couples of troops for testing traps is totally useless.

Defense Logs

Here are some recent logs of this TH9 farming base after the update. If you have any decent defense logs, please comment to help us improve this page.

Thanks mattyy again for this great farming base layout. Hope you like it guys!

  • Joshua Lao

    I’ll try this base out πŸ™‚ Hopefully they’ll add more base layout savers, too much bases to choose from πŸ˜‚

    • Will Potter

      Looking for your impressive defense logs buddy xD.

  • Naj Yusof Ngoh

    Looks pretty decent, but still elixir storage is way too exposed.

    • Krazynewf

      I find th 9 elixir isn’t that valuable,, gold and dark definitely take priority

      Cheers πŸ˜†

      • Will Potter

        That’s pretty right with most Town Hall level. At TH9, after upgrading my most used troops, I just spend Elixir on Walls lol.

        • Krazynewf

          Frigging right I’m loving the whole upgrading walls with elixir,,, my elixir storages haven’t been over 1 mil in weeks,,, but lvl 10 at 3 mil a piece is ridiculous lol,,,

          Cheers πŸ˜†

          • Will Potter

            3m Elixir per wall is the best way to spend your Elixir LOL.

    • Will Potter

      Ye right but it’s really hard to get more than 2 at a time.

    • Matty Clash

      Elixir is useless for mid-late TH9 – So thats why i made them less focus’d than the Gold/DE. They also fall part of the Resource ring in the middle which is crucial!

  • kikolas3

    i’m close to be th9! Seems awesome so soon i’ll give this layout a try

    • Will Potter

      Awesome. Good luck with TH9 buddy!

  • Krazynewf

    Looks confusing,,, which is good. I’ll try it out

    Cheers πŸ˜†

  • Daniel M. Ramos

    Hmm, I’ve never been one for open base designs, but I’ll try it when I get the account I’m using to TH 9. I like the fact that people can’t probe your traps.

  • Dr HouSsaM

    “Looks sexy” LOL

    • Will Potter

      Yea LOL

  • John

    Is this good for clan wars?

  • Wei2Zone

    gonna try this one out πŸ™‚ tnx mate

  • Agii A

    Such base. Such Labyrinth

  • Joshua Lao

    It seems like you can break the intended pathing of the base by placing a jump spell near the ad when the giants are going for the ad.

  • Firoz Hassan

    Hey Will, I am the big fan of CoCLand. One question for you: may i publish this post in my website.

  • naiven

    Awesome!

    Here th8 labyrinth type.. th8 niner terminator

    • Will Potter

      Stunning base. I really like it!

  • xanxustee

    hi, the x-bow set to ground or air & ground?

    • Will Potter

      You can set 1 to Ground and 1 to Air&Ground.

  • Yuvv Raaz

    I am in Champions League right now and I haven’t found the base layout which was not 3 starred but after I used this nobody went inside..They only snipe TownHall..Thanks for the great base layout..And does this page available in Youtube too ?? Found it quite uneasy to build base by just looking few screenshots…!!

    • Will Potter

      Hi Yuvv,
      Awesome! Thanks for the great feedback. Glad that it could help you.
      I am so sorry, We don’t have any video for this layout yet.

  • Joshua Lao

    So far only had one full-on attack against this base. Most attacks are snipes/colle cttor raids. Very intimidating base!

    • Will Potter

      Awesome. Thanks for the honest review buddy!

  • ixsan axn

    nice base, has been using it since 1 weeks ,so far the biggest raid they can get is only 3 elixir, and 2 gold storage for me, th10 with max golem+giant+wiz combination, and also the most important thing is nobody can reach the DE storage!

    • Will Potter

      Awesome. That’s very impressive!

  • Nathaniel Lahnim

    This is the best farming base I’ve ever used yet. It works wonders. I’m currently in gold 2 with 150k de. Im a th9 with th8 max defense. I used to go around 5-6 hours without shield. The only raids are snipes. Thank you so much. I got hit 3-4 times in the last 6 days. Once it was mass dragons and the other was a th10. Other than that nothing. Haha.

    • Will Potter

      Thanks for the honest review. I really really appreciate it!

  • Joven

    Do you also consider this base design to protect gold/elixir storage aside from DE?

    • Matty Clash

      Yes indeed.

  • Brandon Christensen

    Is there a video i’m not seeing or am I just supposed to make it from the still pictures?

    • Will Potter

      You can build the base from those screenshots above, I think it’s not hard at all buddy!

  • Wei2Zone

    using this one and i love it πŸ™‚ i just did some lil bit of modifications on outer part because of 10 cauldrons aha don’t want to remove them πŸ™‚

    • Will Potter

      Ya me too. I’m gonna keep them till the next Halloween xD.

      • Wei2Zone

        I got 11 now πŸ˜€

        • Will Potter

          That’s awesome. LOL

  • Bishal Karki

    Nice base… do you have youtube channel

  • Rjay Ursal

    What’s change here buddy?

  • Budder Derp

    i know this isnt the post to ask this, but should i max my th8 out. My defences are amost to max but my DE troops are lagging behing (lvl 1 golem, 1 valk, 3 hogs) and whats the best farming range to be at. walls are 1 lvl b4 max all of em thanks

    • Will Potter
    • Rafael

      Try staying at Crystal League 2 or 1, and always farm for dead bases, or you can always th snipe and gained de loot bonus 200 for crystal 2 and 300 for crystal 1. Most people in crystal league will snipe for th and get yourself some de protection layout. Cheers

  • TheBluePotato

    Hey Will. I know I shouldn’t ask it here but I send you a guide to your Submit your Guide E-Mail. I think it was 3-4 days ago already

    • Will Potter

      I’m gonna check it and let you know If it’s good enough. Anyway thank you very much Potato!!

  • Wei2Zone

    another tip , always remove those tombstones πŸ˜€

    • Will Potter

      LOL

    • Aaron Fukuoka

      And the cauldrons, presents, christmas trees from 2014-2015

      *Cries in a corner cause they always get in the way*

  • Aadi

    This base is awesome! I have been using this base for a couple of days, and even as a low th9, it has been doing good against lvl 6 giants

    • Will Potter

      Nice one. Thanks for sharing the honest review buddy!

  • Siddharth Gaikwad

    I am at town hall 8 should I get the 5th builder?

    • Will Potter

      Just buy him If you don’t have enough Builders to use.

    • Luca Stalpers

      Or push to champs

  • Jagjit Singh

    Awesome Base for sure.. I hav just updated my Th to 9..n I hav n xbows,no wiz n new tesla n all of my defence is of th8..But this Base is Still hard to breach inn..Strong security for DE.. a TH10 attcked me with giant,barb n arch. 20lvlhereos(both)… But instead of going for Dark they kept going around the base..n Yes they took my all of dark but as i said i was hving no xbows n tesla n wiz tower …n in the End the attcker was left with only heroes n 1-2 Giants..SO this base is awesome..thnks Potter πŸ˜€

    • Will Potter

      Wow, nice. Thanks for the honest review SIgnh! Love it!

  • Brandon Christensen

    Just made it my base. Lets see how it does lol

    • Ma0w’

      What are the results?

  • nathaniel genesis

    Hi..i would like to thank you for this awesome base..i am nearly maxed th9 and in gold league, unbelievably i had experienced 5 straight days unraided! Haha! This is crazy! Got 3 starred once (1 xbow and wiz tower upgrading). And only twice 2 starred (1 revenge,1 tesla and upgrading xbow left. Haha!) Unluckily,raiders took around 200k G and E but DE is highly protected. I would really recommend this base! Thanks again! πŸ™‚

    • Will Potter

      That’s very nice defense log. Tank you very much Nathaniel!

  • Sir_Anarch

    Do you have a similar design for a th centralised? I like the idea, but need to go for trophies and resources at the same time….

  • Army Boncabe

    Nice base Matty, I just raid by th10 with Max troops and only take my DE 28 without destroy my TH. BTW I made little change with your layout (sorry for that 😊) and bring the TH inside replace the archer tower near DE storage. Oh btw I’m @ th9. Thanks Matty for your owesome base πŸ™‡

    • Will Potter

      That’s really impressive. Thanks for sharing buddy!

  • Gavin

    DONT USE THIS F***IN BASE!!!Sory to sound rude but this base is terrible mate! Been using it for 2weeks even simple army like giant healer archer or gibarch with AQ can easily take more than 50% of my storage..You must delete it or else you will convince people to use such a suicidal base.. The storage is JUST TO EASY to get, esp by ranged troop such as archer or wizard. Will ditch this base soon! Here is some pic to proof..
    The only good with this base is intimidation..People will get intimidated by its design so you wont be attacked often (if ur defense tower lvl are high too)but smart attacker will rip this base apart

    • Army Boncabe

      Not bad at all, it depends what do you want to protect… i prefer to protect my DE Storage. Please see my attack log.. Even TH10 with max troops cant take all of my DE…
      i think this base is awesome…thanks again Matty …

    • Joshua Lao

      It’s almost impossible to get the de storage. the gold, elix, and th? Ya, so the enemy takes a few storages, but not ALL. I only got 3 starred once because of a max gowiwi(th 10)

  • Hey matt… i love that design.. But please update the base as TH inside. Hope you post as early as possible. Thank you!

  • Rjay Ursal

    Please update this base.

    • Will Potter

      I will do that whenever the author releases the new version of it Rjay!

  • Rjay Ursal

    Thanks for this ash πŸ™‚

  • Joshua Lao

    I <3 arcanum. πŸ™‚

  • Niwri Ragde

    I dont know if this is good or bad. Or maybe he is using war troops :/

    • Will Potter

      IMO this is very good!

  • gieL

    Here are two defense logs of my base, I missed two cannons and two tesla’s during the attacks,I like your base though!

    • Will Potter

      Wow this is very nice! Thank you very much buddy!

  • StarFire

    Just got 2 starred with barch and the attacker didn’t only get 6 out of the 8 storages but he also got to the DE storage πŸ™

    • Will Potter

      only Barch? For realy?
      Can you post the defense log here please?

      • StarFire

        The attacker took nearly everything, he only left behind about 23 dark and 100k gold and elixir

        • Will Potter

          But he could just take out 56% of your base, right? So there were 3-4 Storages left?
          Also, how about other defense logs mate?

          • StarFire

            That’s the only one lol, my friend recommended me this other layout that I’m now using. And yes, 3 storages were left but 2 of the storages were level 7 (1 elixir and 1 gold) so they couldn’t hold much anyway. AND he took my dark, that’s what was most disappointing

  • Cassador

    Queen walk just rapes this base with no mercy, cant wait until the healer nerf!

  • Aaron Fukuoka

    I made a modified version of this layout to accommodate for obstacles. There probably won’t be any additional weaknesses outside of bowlers being able to hit more building on the second strike, but it should work the same. Replays will come later.

    • Will Potter

      Awesome xD. Thanks for sharing this mate! Really want to see your replays!

      • Aaron Fukuoka

        Seeing my past 3 replays, I am severely disappointed with this layout. 3 consecutive unsuccessful defenses with the majority of the de taken, this layout will be swiftly removed from my bases. In utmost kindness by disregarding the gowiwi, failure to stop giants-archers or queen-walk is unacceptable, thus I discourage anyone from using this base. This base is only for show, not for purpose.

        • Lame

          Yes I agree the base looks hard but in fact loses easily. I attacked it once

          • Aaron Fukuoka

            Indeed, though I’ve never attacked it, I now know it’s useless. It seems Will Potter won’t come out to accept the fact this base is weak, and does not deserve to be on such a worthy page.

  • Lame

    This base sucks! I barched it with both heroes, got two stars and took the dark storage. The defender lost more than 2000 dark elixir. Don’t believe me? Look at the pic.

    • theBaeJay

      His defenses are hella weak

    • theBaeJay

      Really hard to say the base sucks, when you hit a weak one with th8 defenses. Wish you could attack me :p

      • Lame

        Still, not many bases would die to barch. This is a huge weakness. As for your maxed base, it will be harder for me to attack. But, don’t forget that I have 4 healing spells when I only used one in the attack. The rest three heal could make up for your higher defences.

        • Lame

          Though if your giant bombs are at the right place I will be doomed

        • Lame

          Also, not many people have a maxed th9, so my attack would work on most users of this base

          • theBaeJay

            What are you saying this games super old, there’s so many maxed th9s it’s ridiculous? So your attack with one heal spell wouldn’t work on most users of this game.

          • Lame

            Think of clash like a pyramid. The higher you go, the less players there are. For example, players with th11 makes up only 1% of the population. If you look at it this way, it’s obvious that there are more weak th9s than maxed th9s. So my attack with one heal would work on most users of this base lol

        • theBaeJay

          I use a gibarch strategy, and I can honestly hit any th9 level with all my spells. But that’s besides the point. If you use all your spells to farm de. You’re kind of failing.. So your comment is kind of irrelevant? What your asking for is a perfect base, which is completely impossible at th9. All bases have weaknesses. This base here, is nice as far as layout and intimidation goes. Ive only been hit once in the last 3 days. And it was failed gibarch.. (Crystal 2 de farming) so I’d say this base does what it’s suppose to do. Once you find a max th9 with this layout. Hit them and share it budπŸ‘ŒπŸΎ

          • Lame

            If my purpose is to get de, why can’t I waste my spells which cost elixir? Elixir is useless except for upgrading walls

          • Lame

            I agree that all bases have weaknesses, but this base has a huge weakness because it would lose to barch- the cheapest and one of the most used attack strategies. If people lost to let’s say pekkas or gowiwi they wouldn’t feel that bad because the attackers used try hard mode. But, if a guy casually beats you with barch, how would you feel?

  • Eliza_HTX

    I’m a baby th9. Like I haven’t even bought the extra defenses because I’m upgrading the ones I already have first then getting the other ones. Should I stick to a max th8 layout in that case? Suggestions please

    • Will Potter

      Yes! I recommend doing this If you care about Clan Wars. Works on your troops first mate!

  • theBaeJay

    Max th9, crystal 2 de farming. This base isn’t getting touched. Thanks for sharing?

  • Sir_Anarch

    How does this do against the Valkyrie after the update? I’m using a tease/troll base which is very strong but fancy trying this one.

    • Will Potter

      Valkyrie armies are the best ones in Clash Royale for sure. Truly we can’t expect much while dealing against top armies but I believe Spring Straps can do the job very well!

      • Aaron Fukuoka

        Lol Will Potter. “Straps”

        Anyways valks aren’t too common in normal raids due to high cost towards de. At least I haven’t been hit by valks too often. This base will get destroyed (de storage and a few others) by all the common farming strats: barch, giant-archers, and queen walk. I recommend focusing on those before valks unless valks in particular are a problem for you.
