Star Th9 Guide 2018 LavaLoon Th9 Army

Posted By | on .

Hey guys, Ershad(Batista) here today I want to introduce to you guys a new 3 star Lavaloon TH9 war strategy. LavaLoon is an excellent attacking strategy utilizing Lava Hounds and Balloons.I personally have become a big fan of air troops and i always bring 3 stars in Clan war You Guys can Check out my profile Down Below,lavaloon th9 attack

This attacking composition works great for Clan War and regular attacking. It is best for Th9 and Th10, but you can also attack Th11 bases, especially with the new Balloon Level 7 and Lava Hound Level 4.

How LavaLoon Works

The basic strategy behind LavaLoon is to take down as many Air Defenses as possible, then send in your Lava Hounds to tank away damage and distract defenses with Lava Pups. Shortly after, sending in Balloons to take down defenses while the Lava Hounds do their job and then finally your clean up troops to take down what’s left. In detail it’s a little more complicated.lavaloon th9 attack

Now let’s take a look at the different steps that this attack requires. The most crucial part of this strategy is not the timing of deployment, but where you decide to start your attack. LavaLoon attacking consists of these 3-4 steps:

  1. Choose the correct side to start attack
  2. Send in your LavaHounds
  3. Send in the Balloons (and Minions if you brought some) and use your Rage/Haste and Poision Spells
  4. Clean Up

Step 1: Choosing the correct side to attack from with LavaLoon 


There are a few variables to consider when deciding where to start you attack:

  • Where are the Air Defenses and what level?
  • Where are the Air Sweepers placed & what Direction are the covering?
  • (TH10 and TH11) Where are the Inferno Towers?

If the Air Defenses are all inside the core, you’ll have a hard time. Lava Hounds will go directly to Air Defenses and leaving outside defenses to take out your Balloons. This will not work because you need to distract the defenses with your Lava Hounds to give the Balloons opportunity to take down defenses from the outside

Also, take a close look where the Air Sweepers are pointed. They can really slow down your Balloons and Lava Hounds. This to gives defenses the chance to target Balloons instead of the Lava Hounds or can prevent the Balloons from dealing damage on defenses. Try not to attack directly INTO the direction of an Air Sweeper when possible. Come from behind or from the side

Step 2: Send in the Lava Hounds


You’ll deploy 4 Lava Hounds in total and release 2 per Air Defense. Remember when I told you in step 1 that you will attack in a straight line? Good

Do not deploy them from the same spot – you want them to cover a larger area and trigger all air traps before your Balloons are released. This should look somewhat like this:lavaloon th9 attack

Step 3: Deploy The Balloons, Minions if you brought some, and use your Spells

Immediately after you release the Lava Hounds, you should deploy a line of Balloons.Don’t deploy them too close together.lavaloon th9 attack

Please Note: If you brought Minions as well, you can directly deploy them behind the Balloons. Don’t worry because the Lava Hounds already triggered all air traps and the Balloons go for the defenses, so they won’t get hurt.lavaloon th9 attack


Spell Deployment for LavaLoon 


You have 3 different Spells combinations you can use, and once all units are deployed on the battlefield, you can drop them without any stress.lavaloon th9 attack

 Rage & Poision

  • 3 Rage Spells
  • 2 Haste Spells
  • 1 Poison Spell

The Poison Spell obviously should get dropped on defending Clan Castle Troops or Air Skeleton Traps going after your troops.lavaloon th9 attack

The first 2 Rage Spells should be placed in the area your Balloons will strike first:lavaloon th9 attack

If you have space and brought a 3rd Rage Spell, watch the attack and if there’s a bigger group of Balloons left support them with this last Rage Spell and both Haste Spelllavaloon th9 attack

Step4: Cleaning Up


If you have Minions left or maybe Wizards and Archers in your Clan Castle, use them to gather extra percentage.lavaloon th9 attack
