    Lightbulb CW Tactics -- TH8 -- 11 Light Dragon Attack Style

    Greetings Clashers,

    In the CW Tactics TH8 set we have 4 attack styles that, in aggregate, will give you the best approach for 95% of the bases out there. Each attack style has a separate thread on the forums:


    So, if the base you are worried about fits the 11 Light Dragon attack keys above -- Read On!!! Otherwise click to the thread that you need for your base.

    O.k., now that we know you are on the right thread, at 10,000 feet here is an overview of 11 Light Dragon Attack.

    • - Level -- TH8
    • - Type -- Dragon
    • - Mix -- 11 Dragons (1 max in CC)
    • - Spells -- 3 lightning
    • - Nickname -- 11 Light (tells you 11 drags and lightning for spells)
    • - Good for -- Good for most TH8 bases.


    Here is a link:

    Might I ask why light over rage?

    I would go at that base the exact same way but I'd use rage dropping two over those first two ADs (call it a line of death) which should rage dragons on CC and TH as well then last rage i between TH and Last AD (if TH is still up).

    I worry about dragons in CC not so much as a danger but as a road block. If if CC triggers before dragons get to ADs then they will focus on the CC dragon while getting pounded by those two ADs (I think)

    105 is better (I think), but not simpler

    Simpler. Light is a pretty easy spell. See AD. Blow up AD. As long as your deployment line is right you can still roll the base. Rage requirements specific placement/timing under duress of battle. Not to mention sometimes it spazzes out the people in it (and they don't go the way you want).

    That said, if you like rage and are comfortable with it I would agree a 105.12 or 105.21 has a bigger upside than the 11 Light.

    That makes sense. I've seen some terrible rage placements.

    Well done video

    Zaps rely on the raw power of dragon

    Most dragon riders prefer the control rage gives, you can pick when and where it is needed.
    Most dragon spammers prefer to Zap the stronger/deeper AD as dragons by themselves are beasts and can wreck many th8 designs.

    I think the difference is when a base has strategically placed dragon problems like high hp storages, mines and the new skeleton traps. Then rage is preferable.

    This is for th8, for th7's there is no choice, zap zap zap (as a th7, th8 has dragon 3 can take 2 AD 5 no problem) for my mates that take on th9 (as a th9) 4 rage all day is the only way to take 4 AD5/6, we will pass on AD7, lol.

    Bottom line is RAGE = Skill & experience using, Zap & spam for the rest.

    I would agree i THINK 105 w/ various non lightning spells seems to have more power HOWEVER why kill a chicken w/ a bazooka? If the base layout is setup for an EASIER and/or MORE PROBABLE 3 star via lightning you should go that way -- the chicken will thank you.

    LOL.

    Loonion vs Dragoon = Its about consistency

    While the loonian could work on certain bases at TH8 for a 3 star, it can't do it against as many layouts. The base has to be setup to allow it. The Dragoon attacks (813, 105, 11 light) are more forgiving and allow the average clasher to have a shot at 3 star. We rarely see a successful 3 star with loonian against us. Can't remember when actually. Probably because of the base setups (ADs in, WTwr supporting, etc).
