HoGiBarch Farming Strategy – The Best One After TH11 Update?

Hey guys it’s Ash and this is going to be my short guide on one of the most effective ways of farming in the current meta game, which is HoGiBarch. This is a very versatile and efficient and effective army.

HoGiBarch Farming Strategy

You can attack any type of base for loot. You can effectively attack storages or collectors inside a base, or collectors around the exterior sides of the base. Meaning, you’ll be searching less as you will have more bases to target. This composition is also one of the most efficient compositions for storage raiding because of how fast it trains. Since you’re utilizing the Dark Barracks for farming, that’s a total of 6 Barracks you’re using. This army trains faster than other efficient armies such as GiBarch, Barch, or mass Goblins, and is able to do a lot more destruction to a base.

Why should I use HoGiBarch?

  • Very quick to train. This is a very efficient army that trains very quickly since you are using 6 Barracks! This army composition trains faster than Barch, GiBarch, mass Goblins, etc.- Very powerful attack. This is probably the fastest to train army that’s the most effective at raiding storages.
  • Highly versatile multidimensional attack. You can attack almost any type of base. You can go for collectors outside base, you can go for storages or collectors inside base. For example, with a Barch army, you’ll have a hard time getting storages inside a base. While a powerful GoWiPe army, you’ll have a hard time getting all the collectors outside a base just because you don’t have enough troops. Just not a smart idea to use a GoWiPe for farming anyway. HoGiBarch allows you to do what both Barch and GoWiPe combined can do, but train faster and cheap.
  • Less time nexting/searching. You will search less. Why? Because you don’t have to search for a very long time for a dead base or a really weak base. With this composition, you can easily go for a total of at least 400,000 resource within just a few searches.
  • Incredibly fun and strategic. If you love attacks that are fun to do and require lots of strategy, then you’ll love this attack. With the high versatility of this army, you can do so much in an attack and attack a base in many different ways. Hog Riders are also super fun to use!
  • Very cheap. The only troop that cost a lot is the Hog Rider, but you only need 8 of them! You will find that you’ll actually end up making a lot more Dark Elixir faster even by using Hog Riders. Why? Because this army trains faster than any Elixir-only army (as you’re using 6 Barracks), so you’ll do more raids in the long term and make more DE. Not only that, this army allows you to storage raid, meaning you’ll get that DE Storage a lot and make lots of DE fast.

How to attack with HoGiBarch?

HoGiBarch Army Composition

12xgiant 8xWall Breaker 8xhog Archer Barbarian
healing spell rage spell healing spell rage spell  healing spell

  • Barrack 1 = 2 Wall Breakers, 3 Giants, rest Barbarians
  • Barracks 2, 3, and 4 = 2 Wall Breakers each, 3 Giants each, and rest all Archers
  • Dark Barracks 1 and 2 = 4 Hog Riders each
  • Spells = Rage and Heal Spells

If you are NOT using the Archer Queen, then don’t cook any Giants. Instead, use 12 Hog Riders instead and only cook Heal Spells. Here’s my HogBarch attack guide when not using Heroes for farming:

Trophy League?

I get asked all the time which is the best league to farm in. Well I’ve been having a lot of success in Silver League with the trophy range of 900 to 1200 trophies. Why Silver? Benefits of Silver League:

  • No concern for maintaining trophies. For instance, you can freely attack outside collectors with little troops and then just quit without winning because it’s so easy to get back those trophies. I don’t focus on winning trophies at all and I find myself dropping trophies occasionally.
  • Lots of rushed bases. There are so many rushed weak bases with loaded Storages inside the base. You’ll have to hard time stealing all that resource with something like Barch, but not with HoGiBarch! You can easily break inside these bases with HoGiBarch and get all those storages.
  • More dead bases. There are lots of dead bases in Silver. You’ll find dead bases here more frequently than in higher leagues. While you want to stay away from Bronze League because you’ll start to cloud a lot unless you’re a TH8 player.
  • Easy bully targets. If you want to make loot fast, then you need to bully the Town Hall level below you a lot. Why? Because it’s only a 10% loot penalty. Which means that if you’re a TH9 player and you attack a TH8, then the total loot available to you is only deducted by 20%. That’s very little! And it’s so easy beating any TH8 player as a TH9 player, so you should try to bully as many of them as you can. That’s why Silver League is the best league for that, you’ll find tons of TH8s. Same with TH10s who want to bully TH9s and TH11s who want to bully TH10s, etc.
  • This composition will work in Gold, Crystal, and Masters. It may actually be better for farming in Masters League if you want more Dark Elixir and are using strong Heroes such as at least level 20 Barbarian King and and level 20 Archer Queen. Especially if you’re boosting, I’d recommend Masters.

Target:

  • You want to aim for a total of at least 400,000 in total resource. For example, if you can steal 150,000 Gold and 250,000 Elixir from a base, then you should attack it. Whether you attack the collectors or storages for it. As long as you get that minimum total target.
  • If loot is scarce and you’re finding yourself searching for too long, then you should lower your target to a minimum of 300,000 in total resource. You will still make lots in profit and always finding your storages filling up quick.

Thanks for reading and hope you guys like this strategy. Be sure to share you success stories. If you have have questions, feel free to ask below.

  • Sam

    You accidentally wrote “Bark Barracks” and “pells” in the army training Description…

    • Will Potter

      Wow, my bad! Thank you very much Sam!

  • Sak Evan

    Nice strategy… I’ll try it and share it to my clanmates…thanks for this guide… Keep it up…

    • Will Potter

      Cool! Looking for your feedback Sak Evan!

  • Aadil

    “For example, if you can steal 150,000 Gold and 250,000 from a base, then you should attack it.”

    You skipped ELIXR next to 250,000 in the Target description

    • Will Potter

      Thank you! I have just fixed that!

  • Hadipurnama Ktp88

    So, do you mean that the dead base now going back again? I will try it, and share to my clan friend, cause they already quit playing, but i m sure they wil be back again, after i tell them this, thanks Will

    • Will Potter

      There are 2 kinds of inactive bases:
      1. Bases that haven’t activated for about 24 hours. We usually can find these bases.
      2. All inactive bases that offline for more than 1 day are totally removed from matchmaking system.

  • Ultimit☆Cuest

    I don’t understand why every single farming strategy revolves around the archer queen. Is the no giants thing for troop space or cost? I would like the clarification.

    • Will Potter

      It is not just about the Mortar. With her damage and extremely long attack range, you can do lots of other things.

      • Ultimit☆Cuest

        Ok. I watched the videos though, and it’s getting me really hyped for this strategy. I’m going to upgrade hogs asap lol. Luckily, my barbarians and archers are lv5. Question, though, should I use lv2 hogs on late th7, and lv3 hogriders and new to mid th8 bases?

        And although I do like it and all, it is pretty costly on spells, requiring you to use at least one per raid…

        • Will Potter

          Hi mate,
          I think you should use Hogs level 3 on new-mid TH8 bases. Hogs level 2 are pretty weak.
          Yup, it costs Spells but it’s totally worth it. I even boost my Spell Factory sometimes.

    • Adam

      Use giants and wizards ;D. I also like that strategy because you can use heal spells on both your wizards and giants at once.

  • Irwan Syahputra

    Hey ash, I need strategy for raiding th10 with max out inferno and xbow with th9 troops. Got any idea?

    • Will Potter

      The one above should work against Town Hall 10 Irwan! You just can’t get all Storages.

      • Dzeeko

        hey there,

        if u attack maxed th10 with this u just will get nothing xD
        Im TH10 and this isnt even worth it vs a TH10 and like ASH said in the video, dont go vs a MAX TH9.. so i think we shouldnt even try a TH10

        • Irwan Syahputra

          so…what’s your strategy then?

          • Dzeeko

            The one above …

        • Will Potter

          Thank you Dzeeko!
          It depends on If the Storage is exposed or not.
          Don’t attack any TH10 base which has DE Storage inside the core!
          But why do you have to do that, right? You always can find TH9!

          • Dzeeko

            Yeah right but also maxed TH9 are a pain for TH10… or i have to use freeze spells and other stuff 🙂

  • Arrow

    Hey Ash! I saw this strategy and like it! I saw in silver works best, Im in gold 1, and was trying to push to master with a trophy pushing th9 base, although I am very bad pushing trophies ? . Do you recommend to farm there and push later with better defenses or try to push now?

    • Kevin Sanchez

      I just drove in a one-day marathon from Crystal III to Masters III – just over 300 trophies – doing nothing but GiWiMiVa attacks: 20 giants, 16 wizards, 10 minions, 2 valkyries, 3 heals + poison in the pocket. Over 30 attacks, no losses. Made north of 6 million gold and millions more elixir in the process, went from 12k dark to over 36k dark in one day. You can push with whatever attacks works for you, it’s just a matter of smart match making, patience, and a lot of dedication.

      It doesn’t hurt to have a whole day to do it all, either. 🙂

      I will say that it feels a lot easier to attack-farm with a high league rank than it is with a low one, because of the win bonus. I’m stacking up a lot of cash now that I actually can’t spend fast enough thanks to the extra money, and my rank just keeps improving.

      • Arrow

        Ok! Thanks both of you!!

    • Will Potter

      Great to read your comment Arrow!
      I think you should push to Master after upgrading your defenses to a decent level!

  • Zurn

    its for 240 space right? if im at 200 istill cook 12giant 8 hogs with the barch?

    • Will Potter

      This strategy is for TH8 and above.
      At TH8, you can use 8-10 Giants buddy!

      • Zurn

        But he said if you dont have the queen no giants and 12 hogs im confused hehe

        • Will Potter

          It depends on your Town Hall level also buddy. You can choose the best composition after a few raids. Trust me~

  • Riccardo Nieri

    Sorry will if i write here, i’ve posted two days ago a question about poison spell (in poison spell description old post) but perhaps i’ve wrong discussion place.. tell me what i’ve wrong. thank you

    • Will Potter

      Hi mate,
      I have just repied your comment! Sorry for being late man!

  • schneider

    I just cant believe it!fantastic n without heros.. gotta try this out,but what if the spell fact upgradeing,any attack strategy we can use?im rushing th9,coz last 2weeks or so im farming using gowipe at master3,got 3mil gold every 2days,got pannic since i never in that reach before,so i decide to up my th8,to 9.. n just after it finish,the loots gone bad,i cant find any th8 even with 120s of nexting.. my hog is lv3,will that work?oh yeah,any funneling guide for aq,?i just got a hard time persuading her to go inside,as she more likely love window shopping..?

    • Will Potter

      Hi mate,
      We always need spells for farming right now, especially at high leagues. If you find it hard to get 50% without Spells, take a look at this guide: http://cocland.com/guides/farming-dark-elixir-in-master-with-barch
      The Giants + AQ combo is perfect for taking down defenses over the wall. Without the AQ, our Giants just can’t fast enough to do the job. That’s why you need more Hog Riders.

      • schneider

        Thanks will..?

        • Will Potter

          You are very welcome mate :D.

  • adit

    so Ash, did you mean that TH8 is better in bronze?

    • Will Potter

      Hi adit,
      I think both Silver III and Bronze I are good for TH8!

  • Sergio Miller

    Really good strategy and your video is very clear. I’m still need to practice more but even doing some things wrong it works very good!

    • Will Potter

      Thank you very much mate! Enjoy!

  • Woody

    you somehow forgot to mention to not do this with hogs level 2 😛 Somehow it does not work 😀

    • Will Potter

      Gonna add this. Thank you Woody!

    • Adam

      Gee, I wonder why? xD

      • Woody

        ikr ? 🙁
        Sad thing is, that I ordered an upgrade after that and it’s still not done, lol 😀

        • Adam

          😛 lol

  • Dzeeko

    only prob is that im pretty losing alot elixer using this method, and i get alot of gold xD

    • Will Potter

      For farming Elixir, you can take a look at this xD
      http://cocland.com/strategies/milking-farming-strategy

      • Dzeeko

        Hey Will, i dont know what to do anymore… i tried lavaloon but thats not a succes, was doing SQ also not a succes lvl 20 aq btw, did this one and also looks like i cant even get more then 150K on resources… i really need some help, hope u can ?

        • Will Potter

          Hi Dzeeko,
          I just can’t understand why you can’t farm with the strategy above or with the Milking!

          • Dzeeko

            Me neither.. i cant get loot, maybe im focusing to hard bases ..

          • Will Potter

            You always can make easy loot (20-30k loot per raid)) with Milking Dzeeko. Don’t need to choose hard bases!

          • Dzeeko

            Hey,

            Im uploading a vid of my attack, u will get it soon, its around 50% now

          • Dzeeko
          • Will Potter

            You almost could get the Storages. I think you should bring more Wall Breakers or use the Jump Spell in need.

  • E to the B

    I’ve been using this attack lately in silver league, as both heroes are down. Doing quite well on getting loot. 400-600K is my average on th8s. Since they brought back dead bases, my storage containers are filling up fast!!! Great job Ash.

    • Will Potter

      I’m very glad to hear this mate! Awesome!

  • JJB

    So what would the army comp be for a TH8?

    • Will Potter

      Hi JJB, try to use about 15 Hog Riders and 7-10 Giants!

  • Adam

    Is there a Town Hall 8 guide to farming Dark Elixir that doesn’t need high level Dark Elixir troops? It seems everything uses hogs and minions and stuff.

    • Will Potter

      Hi Adam,
      The easiest way to farm DE without using DE troops is GiBarch or GiWi composition. Otherwise, you can give BAM a try If your Minions are at level 4. You just need to use 10-15 Minions every raid.

      • Adam

        Okay, I took a look at the ten best Dark Elixir strategies and I’m probably going to use GiBarch as (like I just said) I don’t have high level dark elixir troops, and (obviously) you don’t have the Archer Queen at Town Hall 8.

        • Will Potter

          Hi Adam,
          Yes, sure, I will write a guide about GiWi for Town Hall 8 soon. Hope you will like it!

          • Adam

            Okay, thanks!

  • Bhavya

    Awseome strategy loved it….

    • Will Potter

      Thank you very much mate :D.

      • Oupal

        I don’t want any new admin lol. anyway do you already have any contributions to this page yet?

    • Sanchit

      • Sajay Raj

        what,cant u read my comment properly…i have said half a year not 1.5 years.Dont post such things if u dont read properly

  • Oupal

    will what if i use this strategy for war by change the barch with wizard for incoming th7 update? do you think that combination can 3 star max th7 base?

    • Will Potter

      Hogs + Giants + Wizards combo does work very well at Town Hall 7 Oupal!

      • Oupal

        thanks will. gonna find the right army composition. I’m a th8 player but my clan have many th7 members and i want to help them. my troops still have th7 power except hog (level 3) so i think i can practice it by myself.

        • Will Potter

          Cool! Good luck further Oupal!

  • rajan

    Really awesome post just love hogi barch but only problem with this stretgy is troops take about 15 to 20 minutes but spells take 50 minuts how to manage both
    And one more question will i get gens if my artical get selected

    • Will Potter

      You just can’t manage both. You have to deal with it mate.
      If you don’t mind, just boost your Spell Factory!

      • rajan

        i want to win next giveaway how can i win
        i need gems more then anyone

      • rajan

        Will please this time chose me i really need those gems
        I will kiss you on your forhead in return

  • Sanchit

    Will, this strategy is for which TH lvl?.. i m almost max TH7(without lvl 2 Hogs), should i follow this farming strategy? ~CLASH ON

    • Will Potter

      This base works fine from Town Hall 7 but I recommend using it when you are at TH8 mate!

      • Sanchit

        Thx bro.. i will use this strategy while Hardcore farming bt now in TH 7, i think hogs are vry costly!! well currently i will continue farming with B.A.M.!!

        • Will Potter

          Good luck further Sanchit!

  • Adam

    Actually they changed it so it’s more than 10% less for attacking someone 1 TH below you. I’m not sure what it is now, but it was in the December update descripition.

  • Dengar

    Hi Will, will this work with TH11? Having a bit of trouble farming now after the update. Thanks.

    • Will Potter

      Sure, working fine with Town Hall 11 Dengar!
      I always can make 1 Million within 10 minutes when I wake up with this strategy.

  • Sanchit

    Will, as Ash said in the video this strategy is not fr farming DE.. bt still I got another strategy (jst a modification of HoGiBarch) its Ho.B.A.M. combination of Hogs nd BAM.. i find it very useful in Farming DE.. with 2 heal nd 1 Rage spell !!… What u think Will..
    ~CLASH ON

    • Will Potter

      Yea I think you can use Hogs with most strategies xD. Thank you Sanchit!

  • St3wart

    Hello, this is a nice and usefull strategy to farm, depending what you are looking for.

    I’m TH10 and a combination that I’m using to farm Gold and Elixir(recommend looking for base that have more than 300k)

    4 Healers, 12 Valks, +/- 8 Giants, +/- Arks.
    Spells: 7 earthquakes + 2 Rage
    CC: Giants or wharever you like and earthquake

    • Will Potter

      Nice. I haven’t seen many players using Valkyries for farming xD.

  • Cassador

    Thank you for this strategy however, I only use GIBARCH which requires no DE. All one has to do is use xmod to look for fat TH’s lower than the attacker’s own TH in gold and silver and crush it reaping the rewards. LOL

  • Arrow

    Hey Will sorry for this super off topic question, but I was wondering if I can get the Baby Dragon (Clash Royale) in arena 4 ?? Or do they drop more often in arena 2 since there are less epics to choose from?

    Im in arena 4 and its really hard to drop trophies in this game but I want the Baby Dragon

    Thanks

    • Will Potter

      Hi Arrow, you can always find it in higher arenas :D. It is just about the chance but yea, If you want to get him faster, you should go down to Arena 2, where has less Epic cards.

  • Adam

    🙂 Awesome strategy, I understand why you reposted it.

    • Will Potter

      :D. Thank you Adam!

  • Juan Gabriel DeJesus

    Excuse my ignorance but when you say less time “nexting” bases, are you saying that the bases that show up as you search for an attack are partially contingent upon your army composition?

    • Torquist

      Not at all. The reasons you would spend less time nexting is because this composition is strong enough to core dive, but is versatile enough to hit collectors at the same time with your barbs and archers if you find a dead base.

      With old strategies like barch and BAM, you relied on dead bases. For more expensive armies, you had to next bases with 200/200/1200 loot because the troop cost was so high that you only profited off gold, not elixir or DE, and it took too long to train such an army. With this army, it doesn’t take long to find a base with enough loot to hit, it’s not dependent on finding a weak base, and it’s quicker to cook than the standard GiBarch. Combining hogs into this attack makes it much stronger than normal Gibarch if you need to core dive. That’s why you don’t need to spend time nexting, really all you are looking for is a base with good loot.

    • Will Potter

      Hi Juan,
      Yes, that’s right. It depends on your army a lot since you just can’t attack bases with full loot in Storages with just Barch or Goblins, right?

  • Ultimit☆Cuest

    lol i thought of something sort of funny. Because this strategy requires at least one heal spell per raid, and you are pretty much going to get one spell every two raids, it’d be nice if I could just double my spell factory for a gem or two. I don’t need quadruple for an hr, I need double for ten min. There should be a way to configuer how long and how much intesity boosts should be.

    • Will Potter

      LOL yea. I’d like to do that too xD

  • Kunal Joshi

    I like this strategy.. will cant we use this strategy with th7? Would u kindly suggest me a good strategy for farming exiler and gold in th7 except barch or bam

    • Will Potter

      Hi Kunal,
      Instead of this strategy, you can use GiBarch at Town Hall 7. It works pretty well!
      Also, you can use this one too: http://cocland.com/strategies/milking-farming-strategy

      • Derpity Derp

        And btw,I am farming for D.E.Is this strategy good?

        • Will Potter

          Yes, you definitely can use it for farming DE!

      • Kunal Joshi

        Thank u will 🙂

        • Will Potter

          You are very welcome Kunal!

      • Kunal Joshi

        Bdw can u tell me the troops composition for GiBarch?

        • Will Potter

          At TH7, you will need about 10-15 Giants and the rest is Barch.

  • Oupal

    In these 3 days I’ve been in silver 2, silver 1, gold 3, and gold 2. Although dead base is more common in the silver, most of them already attacked by other players while in gold mostly have full collector (maybe because player population of the league?). most dead base in silver offer you 150k-250k (each type of resource) while in the gold it’s easy to find base with above 250k. and for th8 it’s better to not bring any giant.

  • Derpity Derp

    Please tell me the composition for th 8?

    • Oupal

      as th8 i never use giant, just cook 12 hog and the rest is 8wb+barch. I’ve try couple times bring giant and the results is very bad (maybe because we don’t have queen? or I’m just suck lol). anyway use this strategy when you not really need DE anymore (ex. maxed bk & hog) because this strategy cost 600+ DE and i don’t always make that much DE per loot. I usually lost 1400-2000 DE after 6 attacks. But, i really loves this strategy because very fast train time and how much gold & elixir you usually get.

    • Oupal

      Mine: 0 giant, 12 hog, 8wb, barch. I’ve try to bring giant couple times before, but end up miserably, maybe because no queen. work really good especially vs th8 and below. Here’s my attack log from farming in gold league 2 (i only can screenshot one but usually get more than 200k loot each)

      • Will Potter

        Nice. Thanks for sharing this Oupal!

      • Derpity Derp

        NOICE!

      • Derpity Derp

        Do you use gems to train your spells faster?

        • Oupal

          Yep. but 5 gem cost worth the amount of resource I can get in 1 hour.

    • Will Potter

      You will need couples of more Hogs Riders at Town Hall 8 mate!

      • Derpity Derp

        Will I need to use all my healing spells every attack.Because if that is the case then having a troop composition which trains really fast would be pointless.

        • Will Potter

          Yea, but we have to deal with this. You need to manager your Spells wisely, also, I recommend boosting the Spell Factory since it doesn’t cost really much xD.

  • Roman

    This is the first day using this strategy, and the first time using hogs(lv4). I already fall in love with it. I made 10 million gold(20lv 8 walls) with boosting baracks for one hour only 🙂

    • Will Potter

      What? really? That’s insane and you are awesome Roman! Thank you very much for sharing this mate!

        You guys rock

        • Will Potter

          You are very welcome mate! Thank you very much for the great feedback!

  • Rotaru Andrei

    works for th10 in silver?

    • Will Potter

      Sure, no problem at all!
      Just target TH9 bases and you will be fine!

  • melvin llantero

    Thank you for this guide ez farm ez life

    • Will Potter

      That’s awesome! You are amazing!

  • Joseph Anderson

    Is this Viable at TH11? I’m struggling collecting DE and Elixer for my heros (walls and defenses are almost maxed). I have searched from silver to champion with little luck.

    • Will Potter

      It’s pretty hard to farm at Town Hall 11 with this strategy since you can’t find many TH9 bases. But If you don’t mind use 1 Freeze Spell every raid, you can use this strategy!

    • John Tillman

      Use queen walk with healers and then a few giants with goblins to get resources

    • pakkus yanto

      good strategy for us apkfreeze.com

  • Reyma Abdul

    Im th10 and im on champ league, i need to spend lots of elix to farm, and im havind a hard time coz i cant find any dead base..
    Will u suggest to go on silver or remain where i am to farm?

    • Will Potter

      Yea I am sure you rarely can find a dead base in Champion leagues.
      Hmmm you can go to Silver Leagues If you find it’s really hard to get Elixir at Champ. Also, are you upgrading your troops and buildings with Elixir?

      • Reyma Abdul

        Yea.. Im only staying on champ league for the bonus its pretty high.. I was wondering if ur strategy works even in the Champ league..?

        • Will Potter

          This strategy works very well If you just target Town Hall 9 players mate!

  • Amirali

    hi thanks for your very good strategy
    i’m th 10 semi max and i have some problem,i have sent my problem via Email to the supercell help service, (ow and my problem was the awe full available loot !) according to the mail that i sent to supercell and actually the reply of that, they want the greater th going higher through the leagues and they didn’t get me so much loot in search in lower leagues and of course not so special in the higher league, after the last update i could just try some heavy army strategy attack for loot and, that was very terrible ! time problem, and high elex cost for training, can you give me some special advice? i really want some golds to upgrade my defenses!

  • Pranav Singh

    Will it work For Th8 in Silver/Bronze league ? I tried it in Crystal 2 and Farmed successfully but there are a lot of Th9!! in crystal.

    • Will Potter

      Of course you shouldn’t target Town Hall 9 mate! It works very well If you target only TH8 villages.

  • Геннадий Белый

    Hey, pal! This strategy seems work pretty well against th9. But I recently moved on th10 (th9.5 actually), and on th10 there is a lack of nines, and multi-infernoes are so devastating. Should I just search harder on silver league, or maybe there is some secret trick (e.g., freeze spell) against th10? And one more advice about clan castle: more giants?

    • Will Potter

      Hey dude,
      I recommend you attack only TH9 and below with this strategy. I usually can find sweet TH9 bases after couples of searches with my TH10 account in Silver leagues!

  • Jonathan K.

    Morning all.

    Awesome sight. I am a semi new TH8, w/ troops at level 4, hogs at level 2. Will this work well for me? Also, if not, than what is the ideal farming comp?

    Thanks

  • Faith Alzate

    I love your website. I always search here for tips and strategies. I have a question. Which is better? To aim for a high star loot bonus or just farming at loot rich town halls?

    • Will Potter

      Hi Faith,
      If you are at Town Hall 10 and boring at farming, just go to higher leagues, it will be lots of more fun there :).

      • Faith Alzate

        I am in th9 and crystal 2. I like the star loot bonus but i am frustrated here because i am using gowipe. In my next attack, i will use this hogibarch strategy. Hope i will be challenged and have fun with this new approach.
        Thanks for the quick reply. Im thrilled. ?

        • Faith Alzate

          It worked! I attacked a th9 with the same level as mine. And i got 1star. I hope as i get better i get more stars. Thanks.

          • Will Potter

            Very nice! Congrats buddy!

        • Will Potter

          You are very welcome dude! Good luck further!

  • Daniel

    I’ve been using this since my TH finished. Solid strategy and it getting me good loot even with my spell factory upgrading. Using a bunch of earthquake spells to take out a few walls and ease my progress. Will be even better when I get my rage and heal spells back.

    • Will Potter

      Awesome. I’m very glad to hear that Daniel!

  • Unes Walter

    I get much better per hour loot with some giants, wall breakers and lots of goblins. Its far cheaper to make and you can constantly attack. Don’t need to target 400k+ bases. If its only 100k by burning even 100 goblins its still worse is since its like 30 seconds. I tried a lot for farming but nothing beats goblins in total gain/hour.

    • Will Potter

      Thank you very much for sharing this mate!

  • Gaurav Pandey

    will this work with th10?

    • Will Potter

      Of course. But you should target Town Hall 9 only.

  • Andrew

    I will try it out! Also since I just got th9, does th8 troops work for this?

    • Will Potter

      You should target new Town Hall 9 players, everything will be okay Andrew!

  • Coolish

    Wow… This strategy is great, I am a th8 and I am getting 250,000 of each every raid.
    One question though, what do you suggest having in clan castle?

    • Will Potter

      Cool. I am very glad to hear that mate!
      Everything for the Clan Castle is great. Giants, Hogs, Wizards,…

  • ClasherF

    Won’t the hogs just melt to infernos and TH10/11 defences though?

    • Will Potter

      Yes, that’s why I recommend using this strategy against Town Hall 9 and below dude :).

      • Ken

        If you’re TH11 you never run into anything below TH10 tho

        • Will Potter

          Yea I know this. This strategy is for Town Hall 10 and below dude :D.

  • rajan

    Really great post
    Thanks will
    Now i can farm without loosing trophies

    • Will Potter

      Awesome! I’m very glad to hear that buddy!

  • Zurn

    I can farm dark elixir with this too or its better to stick with gibarch?

    • Will Potter

      Yes of course! This base is for farming Dark Elixir!
      If you are farming well with GiBarch, why you need to change?

  • Rey

    Great Awesome Strategy.. Hell Yeaaahhh..!!! U R ROCKK!!!!

    • Will Potter

      😀 Thank you Rey! You are very welcome man!

  • Andrew Michael Hipskind

    Do you have a good composition for a brand new Th 8?

    • Will Potter

      You can use either GiBarch or Barch buddy xD.

      • Andrew Michael Hipskind

        Would you not recommend hog barch for lvl 2 hogs and lvl 4 arch and barb? If you do recommend it. What would be the composition?

        • Will Potter

          I don’t recommend using this strategy until you have level 3 Hog Rider buddy!

  • breathing 24/7 bec of anime

    you have always been the best for giving strats. keep it up 🙂

    • Will Potter

      Thank you buddy!

  • Jishu

    I tried this stratagy in th7 and this helped me a lot in farming

    • Will Potter

      Awesome! xD

  • Adam

    Nice, I was wondering if this strategy or BAM was better. Also on average per ATTACK how much loot do you get?

    • Will Potter

      If you are at Town Hall 9, I recommend using this strategy. BAM is great for Town Hall 8 and above!

  • Ricky Castillo

    Will this work using max with level 5 giants, barbs and archers, as well as level 4 hogs?? but th9 army camp. and against th9?

    • Will Potter

      Yes, sure. This would work buddy!

  • Raswanth

    hey will,while u used hogibarch with heroes u used the queen.So does that meant th8s cant use the hogibarch?? The th8s can only use the hogbarch(without heroes)?? pls answer

    • Donald Trump

      You can use it with the King too

  • Raswanth

    hey will why arent u answering!!!pls answer

  • Ahmer Hasware

    What should I take along in my clan castle?

    • Will Potter

      Everything you want! But I strongly recommend using Hogs and Giants!

  • Love Behl

    will this works for me i am th8 half maxed i have level 4 hogs, level 5 arch and barbs i want to loot th8 maxed bases

    • Will Potter

      Yes of course! For sure man!

  • sachin

    I am in th9 plz tell me the composition of spells for this strategy..

    • Will Potter

      Rages and Healing Spells buddy!

  • RyanOD93

    Just on the final stretches of th9. Only Queen left to max she’s at 25. Used this army for maxing my walls and it worked wonders and guess what, it somehow makes farming without my queen fun aswell which is shocking. Will have her maxed very quickly

  • rajan

    How to use it on th10
