Bowlers are still ruling the TH10+ world in Clash of Clans and even though this attacking strategy with Witches and Bowlers is nothing new today, I wanted to rework it to adapt all the recent balancing changes and make it up to date for you.
In fact, this is probably the most powerful Clan War 3-Star strategy that you can use against all kind of bases.
How BoWitch (also known as B*Witched) Works
You will build a funnel with a short Queen Walk and some Bowlers and then get all your troops into the inside of the base. If you accomplish that, you have a safe 2 Star with a good amount of percentage, even against maxed Town Hall 11 bases. If you manage to keep your Queen alive and have some nice timing on spells and Grand Warden ability you can also get the 3-Star victory with this strategy.

Town Hall 10 & Town Hall 11
Main Purpose Of This Attacking Strategy
Clan War (Primary) & Trophy Pushing
Pros of BoWitch:
+ Easy (kind of mass) strategy
+ Safe 2 Star, when you know how to build a funnel, with 3 Stars possible
Cons of BoWitch:
– Requires far upgraded troops & Heroes
– Extremely expensive in Dark Elixir
Troop Composition for BoWitch
There’s one adaption you will need to make, depending of the base your’re attacking.
But this is only for your CC troops, depending if you attack into a Single or Multi-Target Inferno Tower (more on that later below)
Your army setup is:
- 5 Healer
- 5 Witches
- 16 Bowler
- 4 Wall Breakers
- 2 Wizards
- Golem + 1 Giant (Multi-Target Inferno) or 7 Giants (Single-Target Inferno) in your CC
- 4 Rage Spells (+1 in your CC)
- 1 Jump Spells (Backup if Wall Breaker fail)
- 1 Poison Spell
The Jump Spell is your life insurance in this attacking strategy – if your Wall Breaker fail breaking the outside layer the attack is doomed and we all know that this can happen sometimes. In this case you have the Jump Spell.
If your Wall Breaker do as intended you can still use it inside the compartments of the base so it’s not a waste of housing space.
BoWitch Step by Step
Now let’s take a look at the different steps that this attack requires. The most crucial part of this strategy is not the timing of deployment, it’s that you build a right funnel on the outside.
BoWitch attacking consists of these 3 steps:
- Building a funnel
- Send in Bowlers & Witches
- Use Jump & Rage Spells & keep Queen Alive
Let’s have a closer look at these steps.
The Side To Attack From
The side you attack from is pretty easy to find – for TH11 it’s the fastest path to the Eagle Artillery as it will break your whole attack when not get taken out of the game soon.
For TH10, you want to get the Single-Target Inferno Towers out of your way early. This often times only give you 1-2 option where you attack from.
IN case of this base here it’s the top right or top left side – but with all the trash buldings and the Town Hall on the right side the top right side is the better choice:
Building your funnel
This is the most crucial part of the whole attack – if you do this wrong you will see your forces walk around the base and will struggle for the 1 Star.
You will always make a short Queen Walk on the corner and set some Bowlers on the opposite side of your funnel to clear it wide enough to be sure all the other troops will enter between them.
Now it’s about time to make it rain – Bowlers, Witches, Heroes! You will now open up the walls with your Wall Breaker/Jump Spell and send in everything.
Also make Rage Spells happen and use your Grand Warden ability when you see Giant Bombs blowing up.
Now it’s time to watch your attack and drop your spells to support your Bowlers.
