Aftershock – Maximum Dark Elixir Protection for Town Hall 9

Aftershock is a brand new Town Hall 9 Dark Elixir Protection base towards Crystals and Masters Clash of Clans players. Most Dark Elixir farming armies used in high leagues are GiWi, GoWi, GiWiVa and other variants of them. This base works extremely well for almost maxed Town Hall 9 as it requires a decent level of defensive buildings for the core. Hopefully you guys will like this base! This base was designed and shared by Zegaloft.


Aftershock – Maximum Dark Elixir Protection for Town Hall 9


Anti-Archer-Queen-Core: I always like bases which have this features and this is definitely one of the most features all DE Protection Bases should have. This core directs the Queen away from the Dark Elixir Storage inside, she will go towards buildings nearby instead of the core.

Anti-Giant: This base has some stunning defensive rings, which lures Giants and other defense targeting units away from the core, they will go around the base and leave support troops and Heroes behind alone.

Anti-Wall-Breakers: This base works extremely well against Wall Breakers. Most of the time, after destroying the first Walls, Wall Breakers will target lone walls, they won’t go inside the core.

Resource Moat: The main job of this base is for protecting Dark Elixir. With a defensive ring between the outer ring and the core, support troops can’t dive into the core, your Dark Elixir Storage will be safe.

Troll Teslas will prevent attackers from sniping off buildings. These Teslas also work very well against unsuspecting Wizards.

Intimidation: This is a huge layout and a lot bigger than other ones. People who haven’t faced a similar base to this will be shocked and find it very hard to have decent spaces to deploy troops!

Pros and Cons

Pros Cons
Stunning DE Protection Base susceptible to Mass Valkyries/Golems
Easy 30% shield Queen Walk is viable

  1. I bet you 159588837 that you didn’t read the number completely. And I bet you you didn’t notice it had a letter in it.

    You went to check it and I was messing with you hahahah, I want my like

  2. Hmm, vulnerable to valk attacks, that means it will get smashed repeatedly as that is the most popular attack method out there now. I will stick with my own design. It has been doing a good job. Valk attacks are brutal and popular and should be taken very seriously.

  3. Will do you have any th 9 farming bases you recommend, preferably a compact one. I’m one of those people who hordes obstacles from Halloween and Christmas so I can’t use this base (steps on my obstacles).

  4. I’d just like to tell you – this base is outdated now, and new versions have been made. As this has been took from the SC forums, I recommend giving the link to the post so that visitors can follow it and also to give credit, as simply mentioning the name isn’t enough!
