Farm 3M Loot/Hour Without Spending Gems

Hi Clashers! In this guide, Ash (Eternal625) is going to show you the easiest way to farm up to 3 million loot every hour without spending a single Gem on boosting your Barracks. This guide is quite concise and short because it is pretty easy to understand and follow his steps.

How to farm 3 Million loot per hour

Army Composition

The farming strategy we are talking about in this guide is B.A.M = Barbarians + Archers + Minions.

Why we should use B.A.M for farming?

We should use this army composition for farming because it is the fastest army to train and very effective (6 Barracks are all working at a time). You just need to wait 14 minutes for a full B.A.M army while another very popular farming strategy is Barch takes up to 20 minuteds.
With B.A.M, you can do more attacks than other armies with the same time. You will have a big profit in the long run.

Let’s set up our Barracks like this:

Barbarian = 2 Barracks Archer = 2 Barracks minion = 2 Barracks.

Spell Factory: Only rage spell and healing spell

If you want to save your Dark Elixir for more profit, don’t train more than 20 Minions for every attack (It means 10 Minions each Barrack).

How to farm properly with B.A.M

Choose the right league for farming

Silver is the best league for farming with B.A.M at Town Hall 7 to 10. You can find inactive bases, rushed bases as well as easy-to-raid Storages base at here, It will also take less time to find and attack a base here.

With a powerful army like B.A.M and also because of the loot penalty, you have no reason to attack the bases which have lower level than you.

We are farming, not pushing trophy so trophy is meaningless here. You shouldn’t spend troops to get a 50% win, just end the battle for saving your troops and time.  You also should stop the raid immediately once you steal a large number of loot and your Barbarian King/Archer Queen are start being attacked (you can read more about this below). Anytime you want trophies, you always can find bases for snipping Town Hall at Silver.

Choose the right base to attack

You should always be looking for:

  • Inactive bases with full collectors ~ 300k loot.
  • Bases with at least 400k loot in Storages and Collectors.

You can find the targets easier by using Xmodgames for searching.

Raiding inside the base for Storages with B.A.M is always harder than other army compositions or just drag your troops around the base for collecting loot. Maybe you can’t get all of the Storages, choosing the base with at least 400k loot in Storages is easy to understand.
If you are looking for both Gold and Elixir, try to find the bases to attack which have at least 150k Elixir or Gold. Don’t attack a hard base with 300k Gold and 50k Elixir.

Don’t go back to your base once you start searching or all your trained troops in queue will be reset and slow your efficiency. You should read this guide to understand how actually the Barracks work.

How to use the Spells

  • Because of the price. don’t drop more than 1 spell in every attack.
  • Use the Spell once your troops are inside the base and you are penetrating that you need to use it.
  • The best time to use Rage Spell is early in the raid, when your troops star breaking inside and you still have a lot of troops. Barbarians, Archers and Minions work best when they are working as a large group.
  • Use the Healing spell when you have to deal with a bunch of Mortars and Wizard Towers or they can take your troops down easily.

Saving your troops

Conserving our troops is not because of loot, it is because of the training time. As I said above, don’t deploy all your troops If you don’t need to. Control your troops, use a decent number of troops to get all the resource.

Take a look at these screenshots to see how many troops Ash used for raiding

75% Army Camp Farming Method

Don’t wait until your camps are all full to start searching. You can start searching once you have 75% troops in your camp. You don’t need full camps to attack inactive bases and easy-to-raid-storages bases. In addition, B.A.M trains 16 troops every minutes, If you start searching with 75% troops, you will have a full army after searching 3-4 minutes.

And don’t forget: Never return to your base while searching once your army camps are full.

Save your Archer Queen

Archer Queen is one of the most powerful troops in Clash of Clans. We all want to use her for every raid, that’s why we need to keep Archer Queen healthy.

  • If you are attacking an inactive village, drop your Archer Queen at the end of the raid to clean up all remaining and inside collectors.
  • If you are raiding Storages, protect Archer Queen by using Barbarians and Archers as the meat shield.
  • Active her Ability once her health turns to about 75% to restore her HP, make her be invisible and the defensive building before will change the target to another troop.
  • Surrender If you can’t protect her from being attacked. She is more important than loot.
  • Learn to love her.

Having her will skyrocket your farming speed. If you are upgrading her, that’s fine, don’t worry.

Some tips for farming with B.A.M

  • Spread, spread and spread your troops or Splash defensive buildings will take them down within seconds. Spreading also help you distract and overwhelm defensive buildings. Once again, I recommend this guide to you, It will show you how to drag your troops around the base within seconds.
  • Always deploy your Barbarians before deploying Archers. Those boys will protect our girls.
  • If the base is not inactive, you should check for traps and Bombs in empty spaces.
  • Don’t place all your Minions into the battle at once, the Air Bombs can hurt them anytime.

  1. this tips is great for farming gold and elixir. but going for dark needs u to stay on higher league. since sniping resources is not allowed after the update. good luck if your trying to get them. LOL

    • Pretty sure DE wasn’t included in the 3 mil number, plus your DE drills should have been a priority upgrade so that isn’t so much a worry. On top of this, inactive bases means full drills, so collecting DE won’t be very difficult.

  2. i am new at th8.. the troops are still in level 4.. which troops will be best to use ? and when i was at th7 i use to found 300-400k loots at 800-900 trophy but after moving to th8 i cant find loots

  3. I turned th9 few days back and finding inactive bases in silver is really rare,below 1100 trophies is impossible and u will get attacked by maxed th9 or descent th10.if anyone knows a trophy zone for th9 with easy to find inactive bases pls comment. THankYou

  4. Guys i used to use this exact strategy at th9 in gold 2 league and now i m a new th10.
    I’m still using the same strategy in the same league( gold 2) but i m struggling actually.
    Should i change my trophy league? because i ve tried silver ones before in th9 but they didn t work for me :/. Please help and thanks.

  5. I just upgrade to th7. Since upgrading i always get attack by other people. Can you give me advice on what to upgrade first(building) and how to farm gold and elixir. Its really hard for me to upgrade buildings because i loss many loot to other players.

    • You should upgrade your Mortars and Wizard Towers at first, then Archer Towers and Cannons. Follow the tutorial above to farm in Silver leagues, you don’t need to use Minions at Town Hall 7.
      Just focus on Gold and Elixir at first. You can farm DE later after have a solid defense.

  6. Yeah this helped a hell of a lot for me.what I found out recently is that with the new updated match finder thing that now tries to find ppl ± the same lvl the as u that if u rush ur base to th 9 u find lots of other rushed the 9 bases that r inactive and perfect for looting with BAM.

  7. Hi , I am currently th8 with lvl5 archers 4 barbs and 1 minions . wondering if this works for me too , because my troops are low in level ?
    And , what silver should I go to ? I am currently silver 1 (started from 3 as I had left the game for a while) and in my way up (from silver 3 to gold 1) I really didnt find any of those suitable bases ??

  8. its just awesome i really get 3 mil loot in hour…with bam and didnt even needed to use my cc spells or king and i dont have queen but its just awesome i was farming for my lvl 3 drag but i dont like to wait for troops and whenever i go off i get attacked and all the loot is gone but with bam u dont have to wait that much and u need to chooes goal that what u want like gold DE or elixer….getting hella good with ur guid thanks cocland..

  9. I respectfully disagree with you fam, however I’m using the same troops that you’re using and I get much higher guaranteed loot. My troops are lvl 6 barch and lvl 5 minions, use all 6 barracks for faster loot don’t worry about d.e coz yours will be filled up with this strategy also don’t worry about spells seriously I rarely use them. Here’s what you have to do, go up in the Masters 3 and you’ll end up in champions 2 without any problem trust me. Once your in that range you can just attack weak th 9’s and max th8’s w/o any problem of getting 2 stars next if you see a townhall outside don’t hesitate to attack as in this league you’re gonna get shitload of loot bonus. I’m currently at Champion 2 and still finding TH9’s and TH8’s average loot I get is 90k-100k G/E 200-350 DE pretty low right? NOPE! The fucking loot bonus is where its at fam! Guaranteed 190k G/E 1.3kDE. So bottomline is you’re targeting the loot bonus as fast as you can coz BAM only takes 15 mins and if you’re lucky you can find a TH outside easy money right. Been doing this for a while now its freaking effective,fast and efficient. P.S if you’re going to sleep or will not be playing for an hour or two atleast train a gowipe/gowiwipe for a much more juicy raid guaranteed 500k. Only downside with this is your priorities 5 builders right now, I only use 2 for def 1 AFK for wall and 2 for heroes coz my D.E is on the freaking roof right now always damn full heroes are lvl 23 and 25 btw. Hope this helps!

      • yup that would depend on how you want to loot – either through getting the Win Bonus from the higher leagues or get into dead / weak bases while in silver1 to gold2.

        Personally I’m at Masters1 and doing BAM while relying on the League Win Bonus and believe me, DE is really easy for 3-4hours i can make 25-30k DE. Gold and Elix, its ok..i’m able to get 4-5m. I use 6 wallbreakers, 25minions and the rest are BARCHERS. But prior to that, specially while I was in TH8, i use BAM even though I’m at Silver to Gold Rank and destroying those weak and inactive base 🙂 again, it would entirely be up to you on how you want to do the loot

        Clash on!

    • nice nice 🙂 a lot of good input.

      Currently at TH9 with lvl6 BARCHER, lvl4 minions and lvl5 wallbreaker. trying out BAM w/ at least 6 wall breakers, just to hunt those bases with gold mines / elixir collectors inside their base. I train 30-40 minions just to make the training time a little bit faster. Regardless of what Rank I am in the league, still aim for at least 150-200+ G/E and at least 500+ DE to compensate for the Minions. So far so good.

  10. I think bam is best for those who dont have problem of DE barch is best for those who do not want to waste DE for other resources and in my opinion barch is much better because in bam we have to spend about 200_300 dark if you make about 25 minion and if in raid you didnot find more than 2

  11. I just signed up at COC Land I first referred to the GoWiPe, GoWiWi Th8 Bases, Super Queen, Updates etc and found this site interesting..and I also found decent people like Will Potter. Im a little rushed Th8 but BAM and other stuff is useful to me 🙂 Thank you COC Land….I hope we be friends, everybody

  12. Hi Ash,

    I don’t know how you do it. I have tried the BAM technique many times but can’t anywhere near the amount of loot you get. I think my highest haul is probably around 80k. Quite ridiculous compared to your 200k-300k.

    I spread my troops, set down barbs before arch then finish with minions but still no good. Not sure what i am doing wrong.

      • My TH is now 9 and I am in the silver league 1.

        How do I upload a replay?

        I will admit that my minions are at lvl1 still and are being upgraded to lvl2 at the moment.

        See, when I was at TH8, my plan was to upgrade all my troops and defences before I went to TH9. I have maxed out all my defences but I had some dark troops to upgrade. The last clan I was in were impatient and were pushing me to upgrade my Th to 9. I was holding off at first but then I caved in which was probably a wrong decision.

        • Try to go up to Gold I Mathias,
          There are lots of sweet bases there. Also, I don’t recommend using BAM with Minions below level 3.
          Btw, you can use any application to record your screen then upload it on Youtube!

          • I will try to get up to gold I. My highest league was gold III I think. I am not that great when it comes to attacking. I am more of a lover than a fighter :). I am better at defending. So when it comes to attacking I would probably select each troop and scatter them all over the place. So I think it might be a bit of a struggle for me to get up to gold I but I shall try to do it. Unless of course you have any tips on attacking.

            I have had a little change around with my attack, so instead of the BAM approach, as my minions are low level, I have replaced them with golems as mine are lvl 5.

          • If you want to use Golems, or “Clan War” strategies, for farming, I strongly recommend farming at Master leagues.
            You always can get 1 million loot and 3-4k DE for each raid there!

  13. Will do you think this strategy is still feasible after the update? I have noticed a huge decrease in dead bases in silver and gold league, and players are saying that Supercell altered the matchmaking system so that there is a very slim chance of finding dead bases. Sometimes I next up to 40 times without finding any collector raids whatsoever.

  14. i prefer barch for farming,, and by the way i want to know what is the use of 20 or 30 minions …. and in th8 if the bases r strong then its tough to get to the storages …. So people does giant attk or desperately wait for inactive bases with full collectors…. and after this december update most of the bases have town hall inside the walls , so what should i do ?? and in silver league my highest loot is 600k of elixir and 400k of gold coin and 1112 DE but those bases r very rare , i could hardly find thoses bases after 20mins of seaching bases(and sometimes i dont)… I am new in th8 with exp lv 69… NEED ADVISE

  15. people talk about barch bam and bag all the time but i personally farm with giantbarch i bring 16 giants 60 barbs 60 archers and at least one healing spell. This strategy allows me to get to the storages of th7 which is what i am. Why does no one talk about this farming strategy?

  16. SUP…….Bro u should be on Gold 1 or 2 don’t leave that because is Th 8 u need soo much Gold for upgrading your wall’s. I’m in TH 8 nearly max leaving wall’s….So u should farm bro…..!!
