To know more about this TH8 best coc base, continue reading this post.


Hey guys I’m Dark BarBarian, welcome back to another video, today we are making a new Town Hall 8 Hybrid and Trophy Base, this base is going to help you in saving both your loot as well as your trophies, along with that we are going to do a complete breakdown of this base in the base analysis part of the video, so make sure you don’t forget to watch that, it’ll help you in understanding why I’ve put certain buildings on certain spots, so now I’m gonna let the speed build play, see you in the base analysis.

let’s do the base analysis.

The first thing you can notice is that the town hall is well protected in the center, which is a good thing as we want to save that one star and the loot in it as much as possible.

now coming to the defenses, it is quite hard to make a base that is balanced from all the sides at Townhall 8 because the defense buildings are odd in number, so you have to really plan out where to place the buildings so that no side is left weak to certain types of attacks.

Mortars are evenly placed in different compartments and pretty much the whole base is covered in their range, placing them there also helps us in tackling Spam attacks armies like Mass goblins, BARCH and GiBARCH

Archer towers are arranged in such a way that their range covers the whole base, which means the base is well secured against air attacks from all sides.

wizard towers are placed at a distance from one another in well-protected compartments of the base so that they can provide air splash damage coverage to pretty much most of the base covering a lot of defenses in their range. I also made sure to place them away from the air defenses to avoid them from being taken out while the opening is using their lightning spell on the air defense because wizard towers are our second most important defensive building that can defend against air troops like balloons and dragons, so losing both air defense and wizard together would definitely put us in the bad position while defending.

Air defenses are well paired with the air sweeper, they are placed in the core of the base, to increase the protection against air attacks like Mass loon and mass drag, I’ve made sure to not put them too close to one another, to protect them from being taken out by lightning spells in a group.

bomb tower too is placed in the core, to provide protection to our air defenses, town hall, and dark elixir storage.

Cannons fill the rest of the spaces in the base and provide a great balance to the base which helps us in defending against ground attack armies. if you have a geared up double cannon, make sure to put it here, it’ll definitely in making the core of the base stronger.

our barbarian king is placed right in the core, which actually is a really good strategy because when the king or any other hero is placed in a well-protected spot somewhere near the core of the base, he becomes very hard to lure out at the beginning of the raid, and the opponent has to deal with him in the mid of the battle where can’t do much other than dropping spells, so placing king in the center can create problems for those opponents who’ll use hogs against your base, and placing king in the center also helps in distracting dragons when they get close to air defenses, when opponent’s dragons see our king roaming around the air defenses, they stop whatever their doing and go after the king to kill him, in the meantime, air defenses can’t lethal damage to those dragons, so next time if you see some free space in the core of your base, don’t be afraid of putting your king in there.

 Now, coming to the storages, they are placed in different compartments, unlike the bases you usually see where most of the storages are placed in a single compartment. each storage is placed in a different compartment that means the opponent has to take out the whole base in order to get all the loot. some of the storages may seem like they are kind of exposed because they are too close to the outer wall but trust me you don’t wanna put your main defense in the frontline in order to save your loot, because once that defense is gone, the enemy can easily takeout the loot from the storage because storages can’t defend themselves, hence its sometimes alright to put the defenses behind the storage, so that defense can use that storage as a shield and destroy enemy troops to save the rest of the loot.

our Dark Elixir storage is well protected in the core compartment of the base surrounded by all kinds of defenses, which makes the core compartment quite hard to get into, which means that our dark elixir is going to be safe in this base.

Now coming to the placement of the traps, after observation of so many attacks on this base, spring traps, and giant bombs are strategically placed in different compartments according to the pathing of defense attacking troops like hogs and giants, which helps in making this base stronger against ground attacks.

now coming to the outer buildings you can customize where you want to put them according to your choice. just make sure you don’t put the same type of collectors all together, otherwise, the opponent will take all your loot in the collectors very easily.

so that’s pretty much it for the base analysis, Even though the base itself is strong enough, having troops in your clan castle can help a lot, as clan castle troops will help you in wasting opponents troops and time, so having valkyrie for normal defenses and dragon for war defense is recommended but if your clan can’t donate you those, anything will do the job. I’ve left a copy link for this base in the description and the first pinned comment, so that you guys can easily copy this base, I’ll see you guys in the next one.


Using clan castle troops for defending your base is highly recommended as they can put the attacker in trouble by distracting them. Even though the base alone is sufficient to stop most of the attacks used by Town Hall 8 attackers, using the clan castle can help a lot. At Town Hall 8 you can get Maximum of 25 housing space in your clan castle, here are some of my recommendations for CC troops combinations for defense at Town Hall 8 :-

  1. 1 Witch + 3 Wizards + 1 Archers 
  2. 1 Dragon + 1 Wizard + 1 Archer
  3. 1 Baby Dragon + 1 Witch + 3 Archers
  4. 1 Baby Dragon + 1 Valkyrie + 1 Wizard + 3 Archers
  5. 3 Valkyrie + 1 Archer 

Since most people can’t get these troops from their clans, you can also use other troop combinations which are easily available like all wizards, all balloons or any other troop combination but i highly recommend you to have above mentioned troops for best defensive experience at Town Hall 8.


  1. Alot of Compartments, which help in slowing down troops
  2. Air Defenses well protected in central compartments
  3. Perfect traps placement according to troops pathing
  4. Centered and well-protected Town hall
  5. Mortars Covers the whole base
  6. Dark Elixir storage placed right in the core of the base.
  7. Storages well protected in different compartments
  8. King placed in the central compartment to distract dragons mid raid
