Attack Strategies with Golems

Because of Golems’ strength, they are always used as the big shields in all most effective attack strategies in Clash of Clans come with them. I can name some of them for you: GoWiPe, GoWiWi, HoGoWiWiPe and much more other ones that you can see in the Attack Strategies category.

  • Release Golems, use them as the rock shields. While the defense buildings are hitting them, release your high DPS troops like Wizards, Witches,…
  • Always brings high DPS troops like Wizards or Witches together with Golems because their damage is really bad.
  • Because Golems aren’t affected by Spring Traps so you can use them for testing traps.
  • Destroy or use Freeze Spell on the Inferno Towers as soon as possible If they are in Single Target Mode because they will kill your Golems very fast. If they are in Multiple Target Mode, you don’t need to worry about them so much.

Defense Against Golems

  • Because Golems are very high-health troops, make sure all your defense buildings are close together so they can nuke damage on Golems at a time. Otherwise, you will be lost!
  • Try to design a base layout that lead the Golems go around as much as possible so you will have more time to work on them.
  • Choose a good base layout.
  • Always ask for range troops (Archers, Wizards,…) from your Clan mates so they can attack Golems from inside.

Hope with this small guide, you will know all important things about Golems and the ways to use them effective.
