The First step is the scouting process, and you should find a suitable base where you can use the Goblin Knife and get the max dark elixirs. If you lower your league, you can find the Townhall bases which will be easier to attack, and you can get the max elixir out of it.


You will start the attack by placing a couple of giants followed by wall breakers to clear the way for your Goblins when placing Goblins make sure that they don’t get hurt by the Cannon or wizard tower.

Giants will act as tanks for the Goblins and Archers will support the archers.


A good way to protect Goblins is by placing all the giants and archers when they get near the Dark Elixir Storage then you should release the Goblins to get the dark elixir.
