TH8 War Base & 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 and Farming Base Layouts.

All base layouts are up to date with the latest Clash of Clans update and include 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:

5 Tips for Internet Base Layouts

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 Town Hall 8 War Base Design is meant to defend against Dragon and air attacks. The layout makes it almost impoosible to funnel the Dragons into the central area of the base properly and the defensive power in the core area is extremely high.

With the centralized Air Defenses and the layout making it hard to funnel Dragons directly into the core you will not see any 3 Star with Dragon attacks on this base.

This is a great layout to use against Hog Riders. You have strong Trap setups along with the Bomb Tower that are not predictable – the attacker will only see 4 possible positions and all of them are pretty hostile against Hog Riders.

More and more attackers use mass Hog Riders and this base will not get 3-Stared with Hog Riders.

This base is my recommendation.

Anti 3 Star Allrounder War Base Layout TH8

This War Base tries to work against multiple attacking setups – you have the Trap setups working well against Hog Riders, the centralized Air Defenses and general setup being good against Dragons and also lots of Spring Traps against Giant/Healer attacks.

All the Traps are more inside so they can’t be triggered easily from the outside.

Town Hall 8 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.

Dark Elixir Protection TH8 Farming Base

This TH8 Farming Base is designed to help you save Dark Elixir. The Dark Elixir is so safe in the core that it’s impossible to get it without hitting your base very hard – something I don’t see happening at Town Hall 8 because there are much easier targets for an attacker.

The semi-exposed Town Hall will grant some Dark Elixir for the attacker and most of them will go for that to get the League Bonus, but also will give you a shield.

Please note that this base is only if you want to save and farm Dark Elixir exclusively. If you also want to save other resources you might want to use one of the next Town Hall 8 farming bases.

Hybrid Town Hall 8 Farming Base

You’d be surprised how many fail for this base and not even get a single Star. If you’re protecting all your resources, you also have to protect your Town Hall. It’s worth 1 Gold Storage, 1 Elixir Storage and also 20% of your Dark Elixir available.

The Storages on the outside are protected by splash damage, despite the fact that they look a little bit too exposed for a farming base. There is no way to snipe them easily and when investing to enter one compartment, it’s making it harder for the attacker to go for more compartments.

Funneling TH8 Farming Base Layout

This is also a classic hybrid farming base layout. The core protects the Dark Elixir and your Town Hall, while the Storages are in the funnels on the outside.

There is no way to get easy access to them and if someone goes for them you will not lose more than two, but you will get your shield.


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. 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…

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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
