Farm faster by understanding the Barracks

Understanding how the Barracks work in Clash of Clans is very important If you want to get loot faster while farming. This is not a new topic but I still want to re-mention it today for not only beginners but also old players because of its influence in this game.

The Barrack is training Wizards

Many elite players think that they know everything about the Barracks in game but I can see many of them are actually unaware of their key properties. Because the tips I’m gonna show you in this post aren’t mentioned in game or any wiki sites so It isn’t a surprise If you don’t know about them.
Don’t skip this post If you want to boost your farming speed.

Amazing facts about the Barracks

  • If there are troops queued up in the Barracks and your Army Camps are all full, the Barracks will stop training. However, once you leave your base for searching and attacking other villages (even in Clan Wars), the Barracks will continue to train troops in queue. Those troops will stay in the Barracks and come out until there are new spaces in the Army Camps.
    To take this awesome effect, you should complete a raid before going back to your base.
  • If you don’t do the attack and return to your village, all trained troops in the Barracks while you searching will be resetted.

Here is a video from Ash about these facts:

For example, here is a quantitative proof for you:

I have 2 Barracks training Archers, 2 training Barbarians and 2 Dark Barracks for training Minions. It takes 25 seconds to train an Archer, 20 seconds to train a Barbarian and 45 seconds to train a Minion. It means I can train 16 troops in total per second. If I start searching with 56 troops for about 2 minutes, take 1 minute for raiding, when I return home, I immediately have 56 ready troops. (3 minutes + 16 troops/minute = 3 x 16 = 56).

So If you want to farm faster and more efficient, always fill up your Barracks before searching and never return to your village before completing an attack. By doing this, If you boost your Barracks, you always have a new army to attack again when you return to your base. The more time you can save, the more loot you can raid.

    I think a lot of people know that thing,but anyway thank u so much
    and can u help me with war base th7 anti 3 stars please

    • @Li$ToN feRnanDeZ

      agreed

      • aboodkeswani

        I made a base and I use it in 5 wars no can can get from me more than 2 stars im trying to make it better but I think its to hard /:

        • Will Potter

          Can you post a screenshot of it here so we can improve it together?

          • aboodkeswani

            Sometimes I replace archer tower with wizard tower

          • Will Potter

            This base looks really good against other TH7 players. I think you should place Spring Traps next to Wizard Towers because almost TH7 players will attack Wizard Towers firstly with Giants.
            You can move your Storages closer to your Mortars because they have really high HP and enemy troops will need a certain time to attack those Storages while being attacked by your Mortars.

            Still an easy 3 star. Lightning ad on the right and go in from the left with 10 dragons. Take 4 lvl 6 loons in cc and voila, there are 3 shiny stars for your clan.

          • Will Potter

            I think we don’t need to talk about Dragons at TH7 because there is no way to stop them!

    • Will Potter

      Hi abood,
      Ya a lot of players know this, I just want to mention it again for new players and someone who haven’t known about it yet.

      I will try to post some best TH7 base in the future, but you can’t have an anti 3 stars at TH7!

    Why does it say that it is unable to open app??

    • Will Potter

      What app mate?

      • Mateus Souza

        CoC, I think.

        • Will Potter

          Sorry but I don’t understand. Can you post the screenshot here?

          • Mateus Souza

            I’m not the guy who posted it.

          • Will Potter

            Ya I know. Sorry Souza! I just want to reply xD.

  • Capriquorn

    Why does it say “never return to your village after completing an attack” ???
    Surely after an attack the only place you can go is back to village?

    • Will Potter

      Thank you. My mistake at the conclusion, it should be “before completing an attack buddy”. I have mentioned about it before in the guide above.

      • Capriquorn

        Ok, thanks – and I for one never knew about barracks resetting, I just assumed they stopped training after 1st troops then queued the rest anyway!

        • Will Potter

          ya right, most players don’t know until they read about it :D.

  • Will J.

    4 months later and still not changed XD

    • Will Potter

      What do you expect buddy? xD

  • Khalid Salah

    So potter, assume that I left my base with a full BAM army and keep searching for 11 min then find a base with decent loot and attacking it ,add 4 min battle. The sum will be 15 min. So when going back to the base again , I will find my army camps FULL or what??
    sorry for my english.
    Thanks in advance.

    • Will Potter

      Hi Khalid,
      Yep, that’s it! You will get another army after that!

      • Khalid Salah

        Thanks will 🙂
