    Post TH8 - GIWIPE Strategy - Farming DE/Trophy Hunting

    Actually I'm a fresh TH9, but I just want to share my experience with this attack style.

    A special thanks goes to UnitySharp for making me discover a passion for the dark elixir with his amazing guide (:

    I started using this type of attack during the gold farming for level 8 walls because it's boring attack all the day only extractors & mines, so I decided to alternate this attack with the regular farming.

    I generally use this attack 2/3 times a day and almost always for revenge against very strong opponents who thought to steal my precious dark elixir without risk of revenge. :evilface:

    I make a lot of DE mixing this attack style with standard farming army and UnitySharp attack style




    short introduction

    1. Sorry for my english but I'm Italian
    2. I know this army composition is slow to generate but with the barracks boost you can make in < 20 min or make it overnight
    3. I know is expensive but when i was at TH8 the last 2 months I was always full of elixir
    5. I know that someone has already used GIWIPE combo but I wanted to share the way I use it
    4. I know this is not the best farming army composition but it is very fun to imagine the reaction of my opponents (max
    TH9/Medium TH10) when they discover that they were destroyed and have lost a lot of DE by a weak TH8
    5. I like this attack because gave me the opportunity to take revenge against opponents too strong for my level

    Army composition:

    3 Pekkas (lev. 2 or lev. 3)
    10 Giants (lev. 5)
    8 Wizards (lev. 5)
    8 Wallbreaker
    4 Minios
    5 Archers
    1 Healer (or replace the healer with giants/archer/minios/WB as you like)

    Barbarian King, spells & CC troops according to the level of the enemy's defenses

    Types of targets

    1. I've used it successfully against Maxed TH9 & TH10 without inferno tower
    2. My favorite targets are strong base with all resources inside the core


    How to deploy troops

    1. Pekkas often tend to move around the village, removed any risk by eliminating the buildings on either side
    2. Don't lure the clan caste troops and the heroes
    3. If possible attack from the opposite side of the clan castle, to use CC troops to get into the core of the village
    4. Use enemy heroes in the same way to help your troops to quickly reach the core of the village
    5. Quickly deploy troops/heroes (like the UnitySharp's attacks)


    enough talk...now it's time for action

    TH9 - Version

    Army composition:

    3 Pekkas (lev. 3)
    10 Giants (lev. 6)
    13 Wizards (lev. 5)
    10 Wallbreaker
    11 Archers (lev. 6)
    1 Witch (lev. 2) (I replace Witch with barbarians, archers or wizards)

    Spells:

    2 Rage + 1 Lightning + 1 Healing

    Types of targets

    1. Added TH10 with inferno tower (multi target)

    Deploy

    same as th8 version (:


    Clan war

    1. When i use in clan war I check the enemy cc troops and kill them or send them to the opposite side of my deploy point to use (like farming version) for going to the core.

    Example of farming DE/GOLD vs th10 with half maxed defences:

    nice. who would've ever thought that the lvl 5 giant would be the last survivor?

    and im just wondering why wouldn't GoWiPe be better? more gousing space and less HP? I think id go with HP than DPS, u got pekkas and wiz for that, but saving up for DE, this makes sense.

    I try but it's hard to add a dragon in this combo with only 200 slot

    Is Your Base Good For DE?

    I was looking in the vid and noticed how much de you have. Does that base protect de because I was wondering if I could use it. Nice. Way to farm de too. Defiantly going to try this.

    Wow nice! Was this before the loot update (because I see you can only raid 200k gold from him despite storages overflowing)? If it was, then that would be a nice 175k gold in addition to that 2k de you looted Will have to use this once my PEKKAs are at 3 (in 3 weeksish after WB and Pekka L2)

    Exclamation

    Sorry for the delay but I can't make new TH8 videos for this thread because I'm a TH9

    But I can share my new th9 version of this strategy with a little bit difference (:

    I added TH10 with inferno towers (multi target) into my enemy list and I changed my army composition with this:

    3 PEKKA level 3
    12 Giants level 6
    10 Wizards level 5
    10 WB
    1 Witch level 2
    13 Archers level 6

    Spells: 2 rage - 1 healing - 1 lightning

    this is one of my last attack with this strategy:



    Clan wars are just around the corner and I hope this strategy may be useful (:

    My TH8 design protected my de very well but now I think a good th9 with heroes and spell can destroy all th8 design
