Top Tips for Using Valkyries

Since the recent update, we can easily practice attacking strategies, this is such a huge advantage you want to take whenever you want to improve yourself.

Here are some great tips for make your Valkyrie attacks better, especially while dealing with Town Hall 10 and 11 bases.

  1. Your Valkyries must be funneled to the core, not anywhere outside! Depending on the base you want to attack, you can use either 4 Earthquake Spells or Jump Spell, making a clear path for them. Because Valkyries tend to go to places where buildings touch each other, it’s recommended to find a place where those touch-points can easily draw your Valkyries in. One of the easiest ways to do this is to use Queen Walk on one side and 4 Giants + 4 Wizards + Wall Breakers on the other side. This is usually enough to draw the Valkyrie army to the core.
  2. Always deal with Clan troops first. Defensive Dragon may be the worst to face while using Valkyries because 1 Poison Spell is just not enough to take it down. In this case, it’s okay to either have 2 Poison Spells or play some Wizards behind Valkyries to help them take out Air troops. Also, I very like watching defending ground troops helping draw my Valkyries into the core and I just need to drop the Poison Spell right after that. I usually bring 2 Poison Spells in case I don’t know what exactly is in the Clan Castle. If there are only ground troops, I would like to bring 1 Poison + 1 Earthquake Spell into the raid. Poison is for Clan troops and Earthquake is for the Town Hall and high HP defensive buildings nearby.
  3. The Queen Walk has to survive If you want to achieve the last star. If the Queen dies or loses the following Healers, she is not going to have enough HP to complete the triple. It is strong recommended to plan the Walk instead of throwing her down on a random place. Look for Inferno Tower! Place her where 3 or more point defensive buildings are clustered, where the Air Defenses can’t touch the Healers. She will need to walk alongside the corner. If you have to deal with the Inferno Tower, use Giants or even Valkyries to tank some beams. I usually try to avoid the Infernos by picking the other corner. If there are so many point defensive buildings, you will need to have an additional Rage Spell to keep your Queen alive. Avoid using her ability too early. Use your Wall Breakers wisely to take down inside Air Defenses when needed.
  4. If you are a Town Hall 11, it is extremely a must to have the Grand Warden support the Valkyries. Timing his ability is very important. It’s recommended to use his ability once the Valkyries have jumped into the core, when the Inferno Towers start locking on them, the Clan troops engaging, … Timing is very tough and you can’t do it well at the first times. Using it too late or too soon affects the whole attack a lot!

How does the Valkyrie AI work?

The Valkyrie AI is very unique. She always tries to get into the place where she can target the most buildings. In a compartment having loads of buildings, Valkyries always tend to stay where buildings are grouped together.

When dealing with the enemy troops, they will attack the closest target.

Why do my Valkyries always go outside?

This is the hardest part of most Valkyrie strategies. It is not easy to direct them to the intended path. The easiest way is to clear all buildings of both left and right side of the path, leave buildings in the middle remaining and your Valkyrie can follow those buildings to the center. This trick is called Anchor. I shared it not a long time ago, right? 😀

What is the Valkyrie’s biggest weakness?

When they need to break through Walls and when they deal against spread out layouts. They don’t have that good HP and that good attack speed to destroy walls fast. Their damage is also not that good when they are not inside a group of buildings.

They are also pretty vulnerable to heay Spash damage (Wizard Tower, Giant Bomb, …). It is great If you can use tankers or anything to test Bombs for them fiirst.

Why should I use them?

They can do tons of damage within seconds and soak damage from the Clan Castle, Heroes and defensive buildings. A group of Valkyries, 2 Heroes, 1 Rage Spell and 1 Freeze Spell are enough to shred everything in the core apart. After locking on the targets, she can immmediately attack them, R.I.P low HP buildings!

Some great CC compositions with Valkyries please?

  • Valkyrie + Witch + Wizard + Balloon + Archers/Barbarians
  • Valkyrie + Witch + 2 Wizards + Archers/Barbarians
  • Valkyrie + 2 Wizards + 2 Balloons + 9 Archers
  • Valkyrie + Wizard + 2 Baloons + 3 Goblins
  • Valkyrie + Wizard + Balloon + 3 Goblins + Archers/Barbarians

How about the Spring Trap?

Spring Trap just can take out no more than 1 Valkyrie at the same time (2 Valkyries = 16 Housing Spaces). Also, because of their unique AI, this isn’t a big deal at all. They don’t follow the same path of Golem, Giant, Hog, …

When Raged, they can easily walk through the Spring Trap before it gets ejected.

Do you have any other tip? Please comment and share them with us :D.

    I’m a TH8, and I went to Chapions using Mass Valk (well, not pure Mass)

    3 Barbs (To Lure CC)
    8 Archers (To Lure CC, to Clutch)
    1 Hog (To Lure Semi Centralized CC)
    8 Wallbreakers (To kill CC troops, just kidding)
    20 Valkyries (To Demacia the whole base)
    2 Wizards (To perform Magic Tricks)
    2 Rage Speal, 1 Heal Spell

    Lure them CC troops. If it contains wizards, I use 1-2 Valks because of their splash/range of attack

    (Fun Fact: The only difference of the valk’s attack speed after the update is that when valks engage their target, their first attack is their fastest attack/they attack immediately, their following attacks are the same speed before the update)

    Deploy Barb King and Wizards at the back to destroy outside Buildings, I often use 3-5 Valks to clear more outside buildings because the mass valks often go outside after going the first layer because of outside buildings becoming their closest target.

    After making sure outside buildings are not a problem deploy wallbreakers while defenses are distracted by your funnel troops (I suggest not to deploy them near a wiz tower). Just before they reach the wall, drop your rage spell on them and Mass Valks must follow. Heal Spell when needed or if in the center, and use your last rage spell nicely.

    If 3 stars is not acquired, use remaining troops to clutch.

    • Calder :D

      Were you attacking th8s or th9s?

      • Chara

        All the time. There are no other Town Hall levels up here except your own and highers, for TH9’s look for semi-centralized Town Halls for 2 stars.

        Tips: If you find TH8 that is pushing just like you, the same league as yours or higher, their trophy offers are a BLISS! 2-3 starring them will save you 2-3 attacks.

        Tips: You must earn more trophies than your defense loss before your Guard runs out or else you won’t progress.

      This is just awesome! Thank you a lot for sharing this buddy! You rock!

  • insan fahmi

    its been so long since i commented here…

    anyway, ive been in valkyrie clan in this last two months…

    here are another tips from me…

    tips #1 there are some defensive cc that scary for valks…

    1. golem (without heal/healers back up, ur mass valks may be gone from golem blast)
    2. baby drag on rage mode (it will kill ur valk fast, he does have splash damage too and have faster atking speed than his father)
    3. 2 loons (if u play quadquake, usually u dont bring poison, and if ur queen or wizard failed to cover valks, it will be doom for valks)
    4. valks a lvl higher than ur valks (it could wipe ur valks in instant, especially when ur valks busy chasing royals or skel trap)
    5. and last thing is dragons (but don’t worry about it, its not a big thread, if u have a queen or even 1 wizard protect valks, u will be doing fine)
    6. mass minions (15 minions in cc sure will gave u a trouble if u don’t lure)

    tips #2 how to avoid ur valks to scatter..

    1. dont open too many compartment with jump/quake spell, most common mistake for valks newbie are opening too many compartments, and result is make them scatter under a fire from back end defenses.

    2. when planning a path, use defense royals as a magnet to attract ur valks group towards compartment u want.

    tips #3 for higher chance achieving 3*

    1. use backend-troops like hogs/loons. or even giwiz. dont underestimate backend-troops, aside for cleaning up, they may aid your valks in the crucial time.

    2. if u are not confidence to kill cc inside, just lure. if u cant lure, just bring double poison and be ready for it.

    3. queen walk may be good thing, because even if queen is dead, healer may switch to valks in the late game, and help them when ur spell runs dry.

    tips #4 most popular troops combination.

    1. goviz (just like gowipe, but better version)
    2. govaho (just like goho, but stronger kill-squad version)
    3. tornado(giant-healer-valks, its very good for farming, but u must mastery this strategy if u want to use it for war)
    4. govaloon (just like govaho, but using loons as hogs substitute)
    5. bowvalk (bowlers walk and switch to queen and to valks is really deadly)
    6. VHGH (valks-hogs-giants-healers, just like govaho, but switch golem with giant healers, its really cool atk)


    thx for reading

  • ROCKY MAJUMDAR

    How to choose correct strategy, where should we use GoWiPe or GoWiVa or Mass valkire attack ? I’m really confused, please help.

    • insan fahmi

  • Yo Nik

    At the last three valkyrie’s were left

    all my troops were at the dark green point

    they had to destroy that last lvl 10 barracks

    giants , wizards and “1 valkyrie” took the shortcut with the dark blue way

    and other two vlakyries wanted to show their power so they started to use’ their power on those innocent walls instead of taking the shortcut

    Glitch!!!

    ???

    • insan fahmi

      those 3 mean in not same position on hitting last building on that green point. those 2 a.i on search for new target, blocked by that walls, so the result is those 2 hitting the wall, its not a glitch, its normal

    its my first Video, quality is a crap, don’t know how to make it better

  • Daniel M. Ramos

    The valk strategy I have been using that has worked quite well is to use a CC eq spell and then take three heal and three additional eq spells to make it 4 eq spells to crack open the base. I do not take poison because the valks are so fast the poison is just about useless. I usually take 14 valks plus valks or wizards in the CC, it doesn’t matter much. The really important thing is to create a really good funnel. If the enemy CC troops consist of air troops then I will send in the queen early and pop her ability to take down the dragon quickly. The trick pony in my strategy is the I put down 4 healers on the valks instead of the queen. The queen does back cleanup as opposed to creating a funnel or running point. The king takes the point and acts as a meat shield just in front of the valks. It is ok because he will get healed anyway. So far my 3 star chance is running around 80%. Some days it is even higher. It depends on how attentive I am to my attack. The funnel is created by a couple of wizards on the right and left. All of the other wizards come behind the valks.

    2 valks can be sprung by a spring trap if the spring trap is lvl 2.

  • Hadipurnama Ktp88

    Hey Will, can you share the video please, i am ussualy use golem wizz n valk plus queen walk, but ussualy i have trouble with their air defense so ussually my queen dead at the end of the attack or i run out of tine, can you give me any suggestion, maybe my army composition should be changed. I am at th 9 thanks.

  • Donald Trump

    Edit the part where you tell that the spring traps cant take more than 1 valkyrie,now there are spring trap levels.

  • Palladin Warior

    valkyrie may popular nowadays,. but it seem Bowler Walk/Lava Loon with or without queen walk maybe more popular for TH.11,. This is may happen because SC just want clasher to find many strategy by upgradening the defend to stop a strategy, BUT SC just make little change to the troop/spell. It’s like We must say Good to some troops, for e.g: Bye2 Dragon for TH.9++, Bye2 PEKKA and HOG for TH.10++., I mean SC must do with the other troop or make some spell which make some troop to be interesting to use., If SC not make this change, COC will be bored in higger TH lvl and more clasher will be quit when it’s just be monoton strategy.,

  • Sahil
