You all probably know this attack strategy, but I will be teaching you how to master it! This is best used with bases with at least 1 exposed air defense, or an air defense that is easy to get to, so it won't be such a good strategy against some bases.

Minimum Troop Housing Space Required: 200 Minimum Spell Housing Space Required: (not specified)
Have your king and 5 level 4 or 5 hog riders in your clan castle.

Ok, you need to lure out the clan castle troops and kill them with your barbarians and wizards. DON'T use all of them, and use only a few so you can have some left over for cleanup!
Use both of your lightning spells on an air-defense, and then your earthquake spell on the same one. Make sure it's not an exposed air defense as this will make it easy to take out two air defenses with spells then hogs. If there is an air sweeper pointing at an air defense, you should destroy that air defense with your spells (or hogs if exposed and/or easy to get to) so you don't have to worry about that pesky fan.
Ok, now that you have taken out 1 air defense, take out the exposed air defense with all of your hogs. If you think they might die, put a heal spell to heal them! That's what it's for right!
So now 2 air defenses are down.......well, there was probably only one air defense in range of the air sweeper, so the last one will probably be out of range from the air sweeper. Place about 3-4 dragons carefully to funnel the others towards the air defense. The funneling will probably take about 30 seconds since dragons attack so slow. The dragons will clear a path and after that, place your remaining dragons to do towards the air defense and destroy it!
All air defenses are down now, and all you have to worry about now are archer towers and traps such as SAM's and skeleton traps (which distract your dragons).
Once most defenses are down, deploy the rest of your wizards remaining (if any) and your king. If you still have some barbarians, make sure to take out the corner builder huts...those get us every time!
Now you have placed all your troops and the only thing you can do is not sit down but yell at your screen saying "HURRY UP YOU STUPID DRAGONS!". Yes I'm sure we've all done that...

In conclusion, Zap-Quake DragHo is a pretty effective attack strategy to learn at town hall 8. Though it doesn't always grant a 3 star, most of the time it ends in 2 stars, so this would be considered a 2 star strategy since it 2 stars right about any town hall 8 base just like GoWiPe.
