Farming Dark Elixir without Heroes at TH9

With awesome attack range and pretty high damage, the Archer Queen is the most powerful tool which can help you farm Dark Elixir Dark Elixir much easier from Town Hall 9. I am sure that we all know how bad it is while farming without her and lots of players find it is extremely hard or even impossible for farming DE in this case.

No, it is not that hard. Currently I am upgrading my Heroes simultaneously and I am still farming Dark Elixir well with those attack strategies below.

Before starting, I’d like to recommend you stay at Gold/Silver leagues for farming If your Archer Queen is not available.

USING GIBARCH

With this army composition, you can attack dead bases as well as break into the core flexibility. 10 Giants, 10 Wall Breakers and 1 Jump Spell are enough for reaching the core of most bases. Your 5 Wizards with their majestic damage can finish the job easily. You should avoid late TH9 bases as well as Anti-Barch/Giant Bases like this one. Your best targets should be TH8 with 1k-1k5 Dark Elixir and early-mid TH9 with 1k5-2k Dark Elixir. I’d like to recommend not using more than 2 spells each raid to minimize the training time (If you don’t want to boost your Spell Factory). Normally I just need to spend no more than 2 Healing Spells on attacking a TH8 base.

USING B.A.M

USING LOONBAM

If you find farming with B.A.M is tough and requires lots of skills, this strategy should be the another great farming strategy for you! By using this strategy, I strongly recommend you boost at least 2 Barracks for the most effective.

With Town Hall 8 players, I think GiBarch should be the most effective DE farming strategy for you guys. You can increase the number of Giant to 12-15 so you can farm flexibility.

 

 

 

Some ways to gain passive Dark Elixir

Upgrade your Dark Elixir Drills to their maxed level. With maxed Dark Elixir Drills, you can gain total 1080Dark Elixir everyday at Town Hall 7, 2160Dark Elixir everyday at Town Hall 8 and it is even up to 4800Dark Elixir per day at Town Hall 9. Let’s imagine how great it is with that production rate?

Farming in Crystal leagues for Dark Elixir Bonus. I know that a lot of players think farming in Crystal leagues is much tougher than in Gold/Silver leagues. No, it is not that hard at all. You absolutely can find inactive bases at here easily and also get sniped immediately after logging out. Let’s assume that you just can do 5 attacks everyday at Crystal 2 league, that’s 1000Dark Elixir more everyday!

With my experience, I can see that you will rarely get attacked over 50% If you go to Crystal I.

Having a good Dark Elixir protection base layout. Let’s take a look at the Base Designs box and refer some best DE protection layouts for your Town Hall level. You don’t need to copy them. Read to see how they work then you can design your exclusive one.

By following these 3 simple tips, I think there is no reason for a lazy Town Hall 9 player to be able to hit the level 4 Golem upgrade button within 2 weeks, regardless of your army compositions in Clan Wars.
