TH8 War Base & Trophy Farming Base Layouts

It’s time for a new base design. All recent base designs I featured here have become very popular, so they can be beaten by more and more people. I gathered together the latest solid base designs for TH8, War Base Layouts & Farming Base Layouts.

All bases are now updated 🙂

Before I start, I’d like to give you some advice. If you choose to use an internet base layout – they sometimes get very popular, so people learn to handle and beat them. It always helps to adapt them a little bit.

Make sure to adapt the trap setup after taking these bases:

Take note, some bases are rebuilt with a higher town hall account, but only the defenses and buildings from Town Hall 8 bases are used.

Town Hall 8 War Base Layouts

In Clan War it’s pretty popular that a higher Town Hall Level will attack your base. Of course this is sometimes frustrating, but this only happens if another Town Hall 8 player is not able to 3 Star your base – with these base designs you will give them a headache.

Anti-Dragon TH8 War Base Layout

This base defends well against the still popular Dragon attacks at Town Hall 8 with the Air Defenses that are impossible to take out in advance and the pathing on the outside that will make it impossible for the Dragons to find a way in.

This base does also work against ground attacks like the GoHoBo with the ground traps set in the center area.

Anti 3 Star Allrounder War Base Layout TH8

The Town Hall might look easy to get but it’s harder than you think to get the troops into that section. The Mortars on the outside will mislead defense-targeting troops and makes funneling the outside harder and the chances to defend higher for you

Town Hall 8 Trophy & Farming Base Layouts

Saving resources while farming at Town Hall 8 can be hard. Here are some base layouts I recommend for you, depending what you want to do. I have one hardcore Dark Elixir farming layout and two allrounder layouts to protect all resources (as well as possible).

The important thing is to spread the Storages so attackers can’t go for them specifically. This minimizes the risk that an attacker can take all loot without getting 3 Stars on your base.

Trophy Base TH8 Design

This base here works well for trophy pushing and with the well-protected Town Hall in the core. The storages will slow down attacking forces and your defenses will have more time to deal damage.

Hybrid Town Hall 8 Farming Base

For defending your trophies or also your resources, I recommend you this base with a variety of compartments that will help you defend the most important structures in your base – your Town Hall and the Dark Elixir Storage unit.

TH8 Farming Base Layout

For Town Hall 8 I got a nice Farming Base here for you that will protect your Trophies and your precious Dark Elixir as well. Many attackers will fall for the trap layout at the bottom and think they can break through to the Dark Elixir Storage easily, but this base design will funnel the troops far away from there 🙂

It’s all about choosing what you want to defend against. These bases work well, especially the second War Base shown. Take care to alter the traps a little bit so that nobody can predict them.

  1. Lol the second base is not anti three star base. I have three starred it with 2 golem, 10 valks, 3 hogs + 5 in cc, 10 wiz, wall breakers and 2 poison 2 heal 1 rage. Attcjed from the right corner and then dropped hogs from the southern most corner. And my valks & golem were level 1 also hogs were lvl2 and king was of level 7. Defenses were max except walls. Dont use this base!

  2. At th8 there is pretty much no way of defending agaimst a lavaloon attack, no matter what layout u try… i must have tried 100 layouts and lavaloon always fucks me over, even with maxed defences, in any layout… what am I missing? Is there a way to avoid a 3 star defeat from lavaloon? Or am I just bein a thicko lol…

    • Well Eric there is certainly no way you can defend a lavaloon attack coz If its lava+loon that means its th9 vs th8 that is with a extra spell storage + more level lightning spell coz u do anything he will take two of ur air defences easily if he is smart enough to use 2 lightning spells + 2 eqs so u cant beat it its that simple.

    • That’s right…even in th 8 after update valks are biggest threat and rarely anyone fails if he’s a smart raider…u can only protect ur base from dragons otherwise there is plenty of troop combo which can easily 3 star any layout of th 8.

  3. I made a war base a while ago that always takes the other clan 3-5 attacks to three star even against TH9s! It is pretty funny to watch!

  4. I wonder if the th8 base actally works? Anyone want to rply to me I want to know. Im max th8 in crystal 2. That base looks a EASY 2 star. Anyone have a base that is anti air and anti hogs.

  5. In the second farming base with the th10 (I know that only the th 8 buildings are used)
    , what is the thing under construction . And also what if someone attacks from the left side the four storages are there easy to reach GIBARCH and few wall breakers
    Plz Reply

    • It is the bomb tower that is under contruction. And if you want to see replays for this this is one of the YouTube Jaso base if you search him up you will see replays. I use this base and love it

      • Thanks i just saw it and i am using the base al over a month now, and trust me it works like a gem…

      • hey I used the 2nd war base (the one built with a th 11 account) the Anti goho one, but i am disappointed by the results it got 3 starred every war i used it by th8 people only by using dragons very easily… plz give any advice on which base should i use for war??? reply plz
