If you’re a weakling like me who finds himself struggling to beat big-gold bases without using scrolls, there’s a better way.
You see, the problem with us getting big gold, isn’t so much a matter of how much food we get each day, but rather, the fact that assholes always steal your gold before you can raise enough. That forces us to attack stronger bases which we can’t handle, which causes us to use scrolls.
The more effective way is this: Attack open bases that offer 100k+, use gold boost items, and keep up a constant Gold Shield. Why? Because think about it. I can go through 1000 gems a day trying to raise enough gold, or I can spend 180 gems for a 3-day Gold Shield. Both give the same result. And even though open bases give peanuts usually, with strong gold-boost items, you can potentially get double what you should get! So you can turn 100k into 200k! Now take 200k per raid, vs. 600k per raid. Sucks, right? But think about this. With Gold Shield for a day, you can get up to 4x as much in one session! And for less money! It’s cheaper, it’s easier, and you can stack much larger amounts of gold.
*DISCLAIMER: I use this strategy because I bought a +5 level package, and now I can’t find anyone my level to give me anything more than 250k per raid. So for me, the difference between 200k and 330k isn’t that much. Your situations may vary, but I’m just throwing this strategy out there.
