Hey all, Infinity323 here. For you TH9 players, new and old, here is a guide that may actually help you. Here I will present TH9 raids. Let's begin!
Note: This guide is not for newbies. You must be able to make adjustments to the armies listed based on the design of the base, if needed.
Clan Castle Kill Squads
Clan castle kill squads are what a player will use to kill clan castle troops. My normal clan castle kill squad includes 2 witches, 1 wizard, and 2 barbarians in the clan castle. Really good for GoWiPe.
Balloons can also be used to kill clan castle troops. To do so, you need to gather the clan castle troops into one big clump. Then send a balloon approximately one tile away from the clan castle troops. The clan castle troops will shoot down the balloon, causing it to fall and explode on the clan castle troops. But you must pay close attention the balloon pathing.
In this picture, the player calculated the balloon pathing and positioning correctly. The balloon is directed toward the archer tower and will hover over the clan castle troops. But the clan castle troops will shoot it down, causing the balloon to fall and explode on them.
In this picture, the player did not position the balloon correctly. The pathing of the balloon will direct it towards the archer tower. However, the balloon will not hover over the clan castle troops. So when the clan castle troops shoot the balloon down, the balloon will not fall on top of them.
The Barbarian King's ability allows the king to burst into a rage for ten seconds, summon barbarians, and heal a chunk of its HP. Use this ability whenever the Barbarian King has half of its HP remaining or to speed things up.
The Archer Queen's ability allows the queen to cloak itself (still vulnerable to splash damage), summon archers, and receive a damage boost. Use this ability whenever the Archer Queen is in trouble and needs immediate recovery.
How Strong Should My Heroes Be?
Heroes play different roles in different ways. Based on their role in the raid, from insignificant to very important, there is a suggested level for each of them.
|Raid||Level 0-4 Heroes Acceptable?||Level 5-9 Heroes Acceptable?||Level 10-14 Heroes Acceptable?||Level 15-19 Heroes Acceptable?||Level 20+ Heroes Acceptable?|
|Queen Walk GoHo|
Obviously, sometimes the minimum hero level needed to execute the raid successfully will change, based on the strength of defensive buildings and positions of key targets.
Two stars don't win wars anymore. You'll need three stars, and these raids are ways you can grab them.
Please make sure your lava hounds are level 2 and your balloons are maxed before proceeding! Also a good idea to have level 3+ minions!
Always bring one more hound than the amount of remaining air defenses prior to sending in your air troops, except for the traditional lavaloonion and quatrolavaloonion.
Note: Laloon = Lavaloon
