GoWiPe is a popular Clash of Clan attack strategy, but how can you use it most effectively? GoWiPe is available once you have reached Town Hall 8 and calls for Golems, Wizards, and P.E.K.K.A.s. It can be expensive, so is best reserved for Clan Wars, when you stand to profit from its use by winning the war.
Golems have the best health, while Wizards do the most damage of any second ranges troop, and P.E.K.K.A.s are deadly in melees. Think of Golems as your tankers, absorbing damage while P.E.K.K.A.s and Wizards destroy everything in sight.
Note: You can use giants in place of golems, but the attack will be less effective.
After using the GoWiPe strategy for a while, this troop composition seems to work well, but experiment to see what works best for you.. or if you are looking for something more advanced, check out our GoWipe variations here.
- Troops – 15 Wizards, 10 Wall Breakers, 5 Archers (each level 5+), and 3 P.E.K.K.A.s
- Clan Castle – 6 Wizards and a Barbarian for 25 spaces. Add a one of each, plus a Minion for 30 spaces.
- Spells – You can go a couple of different ways here, consider a couple of Rage spells and a couple of Healing spells. You can even add a Jump spell, if you like.
Before You Attack
Avoid using this strategy with a Town Hall 10 that has strong Inferno Towers if at all possible. Inferno Towers will wipe out your Golems and your Wizards.
Avoid Teslas, they’ll take out your P.E.K.K.A.s easily.
Choosing a Side to Attack
Look for a side with Heroes and Mortar. Heroes can block your luring progress, while Mortars will block and wipe your Wizards.
You might also choose to attack the side with the highest damage per second buildings.
When attacking a fully symmetrical base, try the side with the Town Hall.
Deploying the Attack
First: Deploy Golems spaced fairly evenly to absorb damage.
Next: Deploy Wizards immediately after Golems to clear outside buildings.
Use a Rage Spell, followed by Wall Breakers.
Your troops can then lure the Barbarian King into range for your Wizards.
After all the outside and first layer building have been neutralized, use your P.E.K.K.A.s, then deploy Heroes and Clan Castle troops.
Another Rage Spell after neutralizing the second layer will let your Queen and Wizards make short work of the Town Hall.
Don’t forget your healing spell and your Archers.
In most cases, you can get an easy 3 start with this strategy. Your GoWiPe strategy may not work perfectly the first time, but keep experimenting until you get it.
