Try this effective attack strategy for Town Hall Level 8.

Town Hall Level:
Trophy Level:
Army Composition:
Troop TypeQuantityMin Lvl
Wall Breakers6-10
ArchersRemaining space

You can use Balloons as a cheaper option if you don’t have/can’t afford Dragons.

  1. Place 30-50 Archers all aound the enemy village (for distraction).
  1. Put Archers in small groups to take out defenses in this order – Air Defense, Archer Tower,Wizard Tower (don’t worry about Cannons and Mortars as they can’t damage Category:Air Troops). If you are using Dragons, don’t worry too much about taking out the Wizard Toweras they are not very effective against Dragons. If you are using Balloons, and you have not taken out all Air Defenses, Archer Towers and Wizard Towers, try to put them as close as you can to those defenses, so that they don’t take much damage while they are traveling there.
  1. If you need to break through Walls to get to the defenses, use the Wall Breakers.
  1. If you have completely taken out the enemy village with the archers, then you don’t need to use your Balloons/Dragons. If you haven’t then just put down one Dragon/Balloon and you should get 100%. Only use the second Balloon/Dragon if you need it.


  1. It is better to use a Dragon compared to a Balloon as Dragons do much more damage. Also, you have a time limit, and therefore, using a Balloon may take too long.
  2. The higher level your Troops, the better chance you have of getting 100%.
  3. Make sure that the person you are raiding has a fair bit of Elixir so that you don’t end up losing Elixir.
  4. Using this strategy is not guaranteed to give you 100% all the time, but you should at least get one star most of the time. Rarely however, it might not work and you might not get even 50%.
  5. This strategy is mainly for gaining Trophies and might not work for gaining Resources.
