TH9 War Base & Farming Base Layouts

TH9 Base Layouts

I gathered the latest solid base designs for Town Hall 9, War Base Layouts and Farming Base Layouts. I got many emails/comments recently about featuring some solid TH9 Base Layouts, so I thought you might appreciate a post with some good ones I found.

All bases are up to date with the latest Clash of Clans Update (including the Bomb Tower)

One thing before we start, if you use a base you find on the internet you should always try to change it a little bit. Here’s a short guide how to do it:

Town Hall 9 War Base Layouts With Bomb Tower

If you’re Town Hall 9 and you’re going to war you often see higher Town Halls hitting your base – that’s why a certain kind of Anti 3-Star approach started evolving in the past month. In this approach, you take the fact that your Town Hall gets taken, but you want to use a base design that will make it very hard to destroy all of the base. Here are 3 bases that work very good for that.

Dead Zone TH9 War Base Layout

The first Town Hall 9 War Base Layout I’d like to show you is a classic dead zone base. If you would like to learn more about dead zone bases you might want to check out this guide I wrote some weeks ago:

Dealing With Dead Zone Bases

This TH9 Dead Zone Base works great against Hog Rider based attack, including GoHo or GoVaHo. I only see very skilled players beat this base properly, but most of the time attackers fail big time.

Anti 3 Star TH9 War Base

The second TH9 War Base Layout is without a dead zone, but it attracts attackers with the almost exposed (semi-exposed) Town Hall. Getting 1 Star is pretty easy, but 1 Star is not winning Clan Wars. The double Giant Bombs are great against Hot Riders and many attackers will have a hard time triggering them without investing their entire army.

I’ve not seen this base getting 3 Star attacked so far (air or ground attacks).

Town Hall 9 War Base

The third TH9 War Base uses a centralized Town Hall. The attacker will have the hard choice of either going in from the north side, probably with Earthquake Spells to get the Town Hall, but no chance getting 3 Stars; or from the bottom and get max 2 Stars, but usually not the Town Hall.

The compartments block the troops and funnel them away from the core.

Town Hall 9 Farming Base Layouts With Bomb Tower

You always have to choose what you want to protect in your farming base, so I selected some different layouts. Two of them for protecting all your resources with the same priority and a farming base with very strong Dark Elixir protection.

You always have to spread your Storages equally around the base to make it hard for attackers to focus on a certain resource.

TH9 Farming Base with equal Resource Protection

This first TH9 Farming Base Layout tries to protect all resources. The Storages are separated and, although they seem easy to reach, they are always within the second line of defenses. You can also see there is protection against Wall Breakers on all intersections where attackers will try to access your base.

Gold and Dark Elixir Protection TH9 Farming Base

This second Town Hall 9 Farming Base features an outside ring and protects the core with a double layer of Walls. You can also see that the Storages are protected with all splash damage forces available, especially against attackers who like to try sniping with cheap troops.

Hardcore Dark Elixir protecting TH9 Farming Base

If you’re in urgent need of Dark Elixir and want to protect your Dark Elixir in the best possible way you might want to try this third TH9 Farming Base. There is almost no way to enter the core and go for the ark Elixir, but attacks are easy enough to grant you a shield for getting 30% destruction.

Attention! This base was built on a TH10 account, but only uses buildings available on Town Hall 9.

    Nice Job! I’ll have to try some of these

    Tim. I got to get something off my chest. I took the time to write you a valuable article and even made my own youtube video to help explain my article. Its been almost a week and it is nowhere to be seen. I sent you an email asking if you received it and is everything ok with it. No reply. This is not a good way to run a community website. There has been a few articles that came up on your site after I wrote mine which only adds to my disappoinment. I hope this is just an oversight on your part.

  • Paul

    Any tips for a base layout that would also protect mines, collectors and drills during 1 gem boost periods?

    • Lucky

      split the mines and avoid the corners especially without protection..

      • Tim

        That’s right. Don’t have Mines/Collectors grouped on the outside and always have them in range of Archer Tower or Mortar

  • PhantomPhoenix

    Going to try the third one, seems like I will finally get my golems 3 done! Any base that will also protect drills? I am a TH9 who has recently maxed out drills and it is the main part of my income since I only raid once a day.

  • Samarth Jain

    Heu guys csn you suggest a good th9 war base anti gova?

  • CuriousClasher

  • zHep

    i tried the 3rd war base but i got 3 starred with mass valk attack. gonna try the first one, looks good.

  • scott

    anybody know where the center is on the 2nd th9 war base? I wish these maps included a marker for where the center of the base is?

  • scott

    I’m guessing on base 2 the 2 extra wall pieces are by the big bombs one below the CC and the other next to the crossbow? Does that look right?

  • tisen

  • Florin

    I don’t recommend the th9 dead zone war base. A th8 easily 2 star-ed me with govawi, entering from above, towards my th. Easily; lvl1 valkiry and golem and broke through the dead zone with no problem.

  • Tim

    I just reworked all bases and added the Bomb Tower. Have fun :)

  • Sk8rdad

    Any chance you can find some good th9 trophy push bases?

  • Sherman Smith

    Would you have the first or second base on YouTube for or a base build ?

  • TheTruth

    Are the xbows air/ground or ground?

    • Tim

      depends on the current meta. check your defense logs and see if air or ground is taking on your base more and then adjust the xbow mode

  • Sunny Godavarthi

    I need a th9 war base without xbows
