1xgolem 2xlava 8xwizard 18xballoon 3xWall Breaker 1xminion

Clan Castle: golem

Spells: 1xhealing spell 1xrage spell 4xearthquake spell 1xpoison spell


  • I recommend using this strategy with Heroes above level 20 and level 2 Lava Hound. Don’t use this strategy without Heroes.
  • You can use either 1 Minion or 2 Goblins/Archers for cleaning outside buildings.
  • If the enemy Clan troop is Golem/Lava Hound, you can use 1 Haste Spell in stead of the Poison Spell.
  • Your Lava Hounds will need to be busted otherwise maybe you won’t have enough time.
  • The Healing Spell plays a big part in this attack in keeping the Barbarian King, summoned Barbarians and also the Golems alive.

Dominating with Inverse GoLaLoon

Perfect bases for attacking with GoLaLoon:

Start attacking by locating the best place to drop your Earthquake Spells.

The big different between this strategy and the classic GoLaLoon is the first step. At this step, we will use all spells we have for boosting your Heroes to take down the enemy Queen, at least 2 Air Defenses and hopefully 1 Air Sweeper. Along side with 2 Golems and all those Spells, there is no reason to be not successful at this step.

Here are some samples for you about locating the spot to drop Earthquake. The Earthquake Spells allow you to choose where to engage the enemy base. If you are pretty new with the EQ, take a look at this guide.

After locating that sweet spot, drop your Earthquake Spells there and start attacking from the nearest side.

Drop your 2 Golems and followed by your Wizards. You can drop all the Wizards, that doesn’t matter at all.


Once those outside buildings are down, send your Wall Beakers into the battle and always watch out the Mortars as well as Wizard Towers, they can kill your Wall Breakers anytime. After that, send your Barbarian King and Archer Queen into the battle:


Drop the Rage Spell on your troops and Heroes, they can remove all building nearby pretty quickly. Drop the Healing Spells on your Heroes once their HP go to yellow. Don’t forget to drop the Poison Spell on the enemy Clan troops.


As you can see, those 3 Air Defenses, the Air Sweeper and also the X-Bow can be ripped very quickly.

Once those defenses get taken down, you can start attacking with air troops. You should quickly send your Lava Hounds inside the base when your Golems and Heroes are still alive because they can somehow distract the Wizard Towers and X-Bows and take damage to protect your Lava.

You should send 2 Lava Hounds from 2 different spots to distract as many defenses as possible. Deploy your Balloons after your Lava Hounds, use 3 Balloons for each Wizard/Archer Tower and 1-2 Balloons for Cannon/Mortar. Due to the Air Sweeper, don’t forget to attack from behind it If it is possible as well as drag your Balloon groups in a line.
Don’t hesitate to drop your cleanup troops next to unprotected buildings.



  • Depending on the enemy Air Sweeper’s direction, send your troops either lockwise or counterclockwise.
  • Always save some Balloons to distract and kill defenses on the back end of the attack.

The video from Moskri Clashheads above can give you couples of good examples for this Inverse GoLaLoon Strategy.

It is not hard at all right?

Hope you can easily dominate at Town Hall 9 with this strategy. Don’t hesitate to ask me any question as well as share this strategy to your friend If you like it. Thank you guys!


  1. Hi! You said it is very effective in 3 staring max TH9 but in perfect bases section you said base with low level air defense lvl 5 or 6 is ideal. How come low air defense base is Maxed TH9? . Im 3 staring low lvl air defense TH9 with simple baloonian. Why I bother with de heavy attack?

      • Thanks for reply buddy.
        As for our clan, we enjoyed cw so much even though we lost 4 concecutive wars 🙂
        If you have to att without heroes, which strategy will you use to att on TH9s, Will?
        for me, i can only manage to get 3* on max TH8 and early TH9s by using lavaloon with 4 wiz (for cc).
        Thanks again Will

  2. Hey Will! I just saw a vid about a new 3-star war strategy. It’s called “Lightning Storm” I think. The army is 5 max lightning spells and a haste spell with 5 hounds and balloons. *This only works with bases that have the queen and an inferno tower beside each other.* Here is a link of the vid

  3. This strategy looks very different.i have been using hogs or gwipe for getting stars.always i get 2 star only sometimes 3 with hog.i will surely try this strategy in nxt war hoepfully.By the way thanks for this strategy.why Cocland you are always this good.

  4. Hey man…can I use the same troop composition with level 13 AQ and a level 12 BK? I got level 2 lava hounds and a maxed balloon..I am attacking level 11 AT’s level 7 WT’s level 7 AD’s with level 17 AQ & BK in it…

  5. Since my clan is lvl 5 can I cook 2 lvl 4 Golems and ask for 7 lvl6 wizz and 1 lvl 5 minion for my clan castle? Have you tried this? And now with the new dark spells donations, can i brew 3 earth spells and ask for one from my clanmates? Plus I will have 2 rages and 1 heal?
