Clash Of Clans | TH8 GoHoWi 3 Star Attack Strategy

713 ratings | 126176 views
Hey Clashers! A couple episodes back I brought you TH9 GoHoWiWi, today I'd like to focus on the same strategy but altered a little to work for TH8. Join me as I break down this two phase attack. Consisting of the GoWi attack strategy followed immediately by the standard hog raid! Some in depth strategy advice from one of my viewers (can also be seen below). Thanks AlexMacIsKING! "Been working on the strategy since I last commented 3 weeks ago. I've gotten it to 3 star very often, usually always atleast 80% and like I said, mostly 3 star. I've been taking 1 archer, 3 barbs, 12 hogs, 2 golems, 6 wb, and the rest wizards with max hogs in the CC. Sometimes I take an extra hog and one less barb and wiz, all depends on how many wiz I think I'll need. This attack has been successful on tight as well as medium spread bases, though when it's the medium I tend to like doing it as a clean up attack after a clan mate has revealed or at least helped reveal where the big bombs are, although I have 3 starred without that. Been sending in 1 hog to pull the CC and the barch bit to draw it out. Of course I personally have found drawing the CC to be a plus though the opinion may very because it does cost some wiz, and also it has made the attack very close on time. In fact when the attack hasn't worked for me when pulling the CC it was probably time related about 90% of the time. When you can pull the CC out to an open space that lines up with getting to the BK in the base it's a very good thing, because it's best for the hogs if the golem half distracts the BK although there is another option for that, which I will get to. But since it takes time and wiz to pull the CC, I've found it to be most efficient that as soon as you put the wiz you need down to kill the CC you start the golems, before the CC is even killed. If you start the attack like that in the same part of the base you drew the CC to, then the wiz aren't wasted because they join the golems and the rest of your attack when they finish the CC. It takes a bit of skill to get that timing right but I for sure think its and advantage. When I haven't cleared the CC the risk I've encountered is the wiz putting themselves in dangerous situations to kill CC troops, as well as the CC breaking a golem though often when I have cleared the CC I have a golem left unbroken after the defense is all taken out. So yeah, balancing act there I guess. As far as starting the hogs go, I have found there is a couple different options. First rule of thumb for me is keeping them away from the BK. When the golems do distract the BK it's fine to start hogs on the opposite side of the base. The one issue sometimes is the hogs spreading themselves out too thin, so I always choose to start the hogs on the side with less defense, especially cus they can come in the back door when the other stuff is distracted. Careful deployment can sometimes keep them in 2 groups but it isn't automatic. As far as my priorities, when I clear the CC I think it is more important to start the golems from where the CC was cleared too, rather than occupy the BK. So therefore I've had 2 different tactics for that situation. One of them is saving my BK to distract the other BK once my hogs get close to range, but if the base is tight this is not possible. The second is starting the hogs so that the BK is the last thing they come too, so he doesn't chew them up in the middle of their route. Using the healing spells sometimes work but it's hard to totally protect them from the BK like that. One nice tactic I've done on a nice square base, the BK was in the left corner and the CC was kind of on the bottom to right corner side. I cleared the CC in the bottom corner and started the golem/wiz part from there. Then I started the hogs from the right corner of the base. By doing it like this, the golem portion of the attack had already cleared some of the defenses, making more of a path for the hogs and making it more difficult for them to spread out. So the hogs crossed the base from right to left and the golem portion also went to the left where they meet the BK as all the defenses were being finished. By doing that I had a lot of hogs remaining at the end and some wiz and was good on time by about 15 seconds. My last tip for the attack is the I like to save some wiz to help clear at the end of the attack, usually I save 3. It's a bit of a personal thing but it has helped. The one thing I still kind if need to learn a bit with is making sure I get the most out of my wizards on the golem/wiz half of the attack."

Clorox Bleach (2 years ago)
+Isabelle Wingo that's fine, it still works like a charm. I suggest to bring a pekka along too tho rather than 17 wiz and then bring 1 rage 2 heal.
Mabel Sam (3 years ago)
is it worth having 2 golems? bcause I saw that there is always a golem without being killed and maybe we could put more hogs. the strategy is good I dont complain about that ;)

This is the first video I have seen of you, and I subscribed. Looks like quite an effective and enjoyable attack strategy, and look foward to using it when my Hogs get upgraded. Well done!
cswann8 (3 years ago)
This is my main attack now, and unless I just make a mistake I'm getting three stars consistently on maxed TH8's.
CWA Mobile Gaming (3 years ago)
+cswann8 Awesome! That's exactly what I love to hear man! Keep up the good work!
Justine Dizon (3 years ago)
Do you need level 4 hogs to this strategy or level 3 is okay? (please reply)
cswann8 (3 years ago)
+Justine Dizon Definitely start using this with lvl 3 Hogs. The sooner you start doing it the sooner you'll become a pro at it. The keys to pulling off a perfect GoHoWi are taking out CC with the GoWi part, and tripping those GBs if you can. Once the CC is down, then it becomes an exercise in predicting the path of your hogs and dropping the heals in front of them and making the most of them (making sure the hogs are standing in a heal as long as possible). If at all possible I like to hold back 4 wiz to make cleanup faster or possibly get the last star. I've had cases where spring traps and such left me with only 3 or 4 hogs at the end and got taken out by the lvl 10 BK in the center, once the last def went down. My reserve wiz and my BK finished the job.
Justine Dizon (3 years ago)
+Clash With Ash ill try this strategy in our next war !!
Justine Dizon (3 years ago)
+Clash With Ash okay thank you ash!
CWA Mobile Gaming (3 years ago)
+Justine Dizon As long as you're not aiming too high level 3 should do the trick :)

Do any of you guys know how many walls a hog can jump over??
Hippieboy3 (2 years ago)
+sammy alam Hogs used to be able to jump over an unlimited amount of walls, but since the update a while back, now they can only jump over 8 walls for every hog. Hoped this helped ;)
Joseph Dorame (3 years ago)
+ClashWithAsh  I recently subscribed and like the videos. I need some help.  I try the golem lavaloonion strategy but it does not work for me since my heroes are only level 17.  Any thoughts for me or tips?  Thanks!
Joseph Dorame (3 years ago)
I have success with 4 lava hounds 21 loons and 25 minions, that has been a strategy i found on youtube. It does work pretty well even for maxed bases, mostly get 2 stars and sometimes even without using heroes.  I was just bored with it and wanted to master a new war attack :)
CWA Mobile Gaming (3 years ago)
+Joseph Dorame Thanks for the sub! hmmmm...I'd say to perhaps try LavaLoon (take away the minions) to help compensate for lower to mid level heroes.
99iz (3 years ago)
Lol someone in your clan using Clash with Cam Base design, talk about loyalty. Brilliant design i use it myself. Another top video Ash. This clan Bangladesh have appeared in many people's videos now, coming from the same country as them I might join.
Anthony Rodriguez (3 years ago)
I always get 3 starred with it, but only from the second time I get attacked, always by a th9 try hard with max hogs or something else with the dumb queen.

+99iz Thanks 99iz! Appreciate it. Let me know how you like them if you join up.

+Anonymous Daniel haha! Well happy you found it (and liked it!) Thanks for watching Daniel!
AlexMacIsKING (3 years ago)
Oh, and also I have a base I'd be interested in sharing for a video if there is any way to do that? I developed it myself from scratch from the start of TH8 and it is excellent and it doesn't get 3 starred by TH8's and it has held off TH9's a good bit more than half the time. It's an excellent war base and excellent for trophies as well. It has been my child, but now I'm finishing up with TH8 and would like the base to live on, also figured it would be good PR for my clan, lol. Is there anyway to potentially get it in a video?

Hey, so I'm kind of in and out tonight and this weekend as far as being online goes. So if you wanna check out those replays it's still fine, I sent out a clan mail telling anyone who sees somebody with your username to just accept you (usually we only let me and Co's do it), and I just told them your a friend of mine and you might stop by real fast so that they don't annoy you or anything. My clan is mature but maybe not "that" mature, if you know what I mean, lol, idk if they would start trying to show off or something. So yeah if you come by to grab em and I miss you I can just send you my notes on the attacks afterwards, no biggy. Separate note, you might be interested in my war base. There is a theory behind the 2 teslas at the bottom of it that I've developed and been very successful with. So if your interested I'd be very willing to share that theory too.
CWA Mobile Gaming (3 years ago)
+AlexMacIsKING Tanks Alex- I'll bookmark you and try to get over this evening if I can! Appreciate your willingness to share!
AlexMacIsKING (3 years ago)
As it turns out about half an hour ago we literally just won a war on the GoHoWi, got 3 stars with 7 minutes left in war to take the lead and it was the first time I had somebody in the clan who wasn't me do the attack. I did it twice myself and had 2 really nice, clean attacks with it and both times I used the part of the strategy I talked about with starting the hogs in the corner next to the golems like I talked about, which I'm really starting to think is the best way, and my clearing the CC was as beautiful and as efficient as it gets. If you'd like to come record them I'd be more than happy for you to come take a look and I can be around to chat with you about some of the fine little individual details in the attacks that are worth pointing out. I'm sure you've got plenty of commitments and stuff in your own clan so I can keep an eye on my inbox if you have a certain time that works for you. I'm in the New York time zone, I can be online anytime from like noon up to 5 AM cus I'm a bit of a night owl, lol. Our clan name is "TheBooksOfWar", our ID is #C9PY9UR, and I am the leader. Idk how soon you'll see this but I should most likely be around all night tonight. But yeah, let me know, would be more than to set something up.
CWA Mobile Gaming (3 years ago)
+AlexMacIsKING Wow such a nice and well thought out / written guide. I'll go ahead and add this to the video description so others will be able to check it out and learn from your observations / experience with it. If you have any particularly successful attacks you'd like to share I'd be happy to record. Thanks again for the write up!

do i need golem lvl 2 or hogs lvl 4 for gohowi?
Clorox Bleach (2 years ago)
+frischer kaese Not necessarily, it works with lvl 1 too.
Anthony Rodriguez (3 years ago)
Lvl 2 golems aren't that big a deal, but I you don't have lvl 4 hogs I suggest you use the gowi part of the attack where the giant bombs wld be. Then your hogs will be fine.

Just tried it for the first time in my clan war since against the Cyanide base, since we through the kitchen sink at that base last war and our best was 2 stars for 88%. I got 1 star and 77 percent but it looked promising. I split the base in half and used golems/wiz on the one half and they got the CC no problem. BK was on the other half of the base and that's what seemed to be perhaps a bit costly. Had I came at it with the angle to have the golem half manage the CC and BK and used my wall breakers a bit better (they didn't go core) I think it could be 3 starred. Promising attack, it's a good something different for when gowipe a don't work, for sure gonna practice and develop it a little.
CWA Mobile Gaming (3 years ago)
+AlexMacIsKING Thanks for the feedback Alex. Sounds like you are very close to getting the strategy down. Sounds like timing needs a little fine tuning and you'll be there (deployment timing and placement). Thanks for the comment and let me know how it works for you moving forward!

Lol oops, I hate autocorrect I meant testlas
