Mass Dragon is the attacking strategy with the longest history in Clash of Clans. It was the strategy that made the first player reach 4,000 Trophies years ago and was always very effective. In this post, I will show you how it works at all Town Hall Levels.
How Mass Dragon Works At All Town Hall Levels -Clash of Clan Strategy

Mass Dragon Step by Step
I will show you more detailed instructions for your Town Hall Level later in this post, but before we get to that, I want to explain you the basic mechanics of mass Dragon attacking.
Dragons have a lot of hitpoints and deal some proper damage, but they fear high-level Air Defenses and also some setups of Air Sweeper. This means you can’t 3 Star any base you want, but you’ll find plenty of bases this works great against. Even in Town Hall 11, you’ll be able to make solid 2 Star attacks if you have higher level Heroes.
If I break it down to the very basics, this attacking strategy has 4 Steps:
- Taking down Air Defenses with Spells
- Deploy Dragons on the outside to funnel most of your Dragons into the base (instead of making them go around the base
- Make your Dragons go through the base and support them with Spells
- Cleaning up and go for the Town Hall with Heroes
Step 1: Taking Down Air Defenses
Air Defenses will take your Dragons down to the ground like flies, so you need to take them out as soon as possible! Depending on your Town Hall Level you take either Lightning Spells or an Earthquake Spell plus Lightning Spells.
Don’t attack bases that have all their Air Defenses in the core. This kind of setup will make it almost impossible that your Dragons take down additional Air Defenses before they get taken down by them.
Which Air Defense To Destroy?
Take down the Air Defense that our Dragons would reach at the latest point. Your Dragons will take down the other Air Defenses themselves asap so the 3rd they would reach is the one you destroy with Spells before you attack.
Step 2: Funnel The Dragons
A big mistake I constantly see with Dragon attacks is the wrong deployment. Many deploy all the Dragons on one side of the base and then ask themselves what goes wrong because the Dragons go around the base and get shot down one by one by the Air Defenses.
You always have to deploy some Dragons on the outside first before deploying the other Dragons that go into the base! That will make the Dragons go into the base inside and do what you want them to do.
Step 3: Make Dragons Destroy The Base
Now that you have many Dragons inside the base you need to support them. Depending which Town Hall Level you are, you have more or less Spells left (described more in detail below).
Use Rage Spells and/or Freeze Spells. Try to drop the Rage Spells in a spot where many Dragons are to get the best effort out of it. Also, try to freeze Inferno Towers together with Air Defenses if possible, because they will take down your Dragons quite fast.
Step 4: Finalize Your Attack
In lower Town Hall Level you don’t need to do this because the Dragons probably took down the base on their own – in higher Leagues and Town Hall Level (TH9+), there will be leftover structures you need to take down with your Heroes.
Mass Dragon For Town Hall 7
You’ll go for TH6 to TH8 bases when you’re Town Hall 7, in Trophy Pushing and in Clan War. You have the problem that TH7 now also has 3 Air Defenses, which makes your life more complicated. Let’s take a look how the steps apply for a TH7 attacker:
- Step 1: Use 3 Lightning Spells to take out 1 Air Defense
- Deploy & Funnel Dragons
- Clean Up With Your Hero If you Already Have
The crucial thing is to select a base where your Dragons are able to reach the other Air Defenses as soon as possible. If you manage to get them destroyed before half your Dragons are down, you will 3 Star the base most of the times. Here’s a replay:
Mass Dragon For Town Hall 8
Your Spell capacity is now better, and you can receive a Dark Spell donation. This means you can save Spell capacity when destroying an Air Defense by destroying it with 2 Lightning Spells and 1 Earthquake Spell and have space left for a Rage Spell:
- Step 1: Destroy the Air Defense that you would reach at the latest point of your attack with 2 Lightning Spells and 1 Earthquake Spell (donated to you)
- Funnel your Dragons into the base
- Drop your Rage Spell
- Clean Up from the opposite side with your Barbarian King
Here’s a replay showing it (funneling wasn’t perfect, and he could have dropped the King earlier though):
Mass Dragon For Town Hall 9 (Queens Walk & ZapQuake)
There are some different approaches for Town Hall 9 that work. In my experience we can separate them into 2 different styles, depending on your Heroes level:
If your Heroes are Level 15+ you can go with a Queens Walk and Rage Spells
If you have lower level Heroes, you need to go with ZapQuake (taking down 2 Air Defenses before)
Town Hall 9 Mass Dragon with Heroes Level 15+
With higher Heroes you take 3 Healers with you and start off with a Queen Walk (deploy the Queen and the 3 Healers). Deploy her at a point where the Air Defenses are exposed so she can take two of them down. Especially against TH9 bases with high-level Air Defenses, this works better and you need to use this strategy to not fail your attack. Air Defenses gain a lot more DPS when they get to their higher level.
Doing a Queen Walk with a Queen lower than Level 15 (or even 20) will mean she dies too fast, the Healers can’t cover enough and she doesn’t deal enough damage to be able to go for the Air Defenses. The good thing about the Queen Walk is that she will clean about a quarter of the bases’ space, so you save a lot of work for your Dragons.
Have a look at this replay, it shows step by step how the attack should be performed:
Town Hall 9 Mass Dragon with low-level Heroes
You have to deal with 4 Air Defenses and need to take 2 of them down before your Dragons go in. Bring 4 Lightning Spells and 2 Earthquake Spells (1 donated) with you and drop 2 Lightning Spells and 1 Earthquake Spell on each Air Defense.
This will not work if the Air Defenses are Level 7! Keep in mind, that you will not 3 Star such a base with low-level Heroes, unless the base design is very poor.
There are many different approaches in troop combination, and you can make some experiments:
- Using Hogs for an exposed Air Defense
- Bringing some Balloons
- Lava Hound
Mass Dragon For Town Hall 10
You need to bring 2 Lava Hounds along with your Dragons. Zapping down two Air Defenses like described earlier and then deploy the Lava Hounds to cover damage as soon as the Dragons start getting damage from the other 2 Air Defenses.
Here’s a replay that shows this strategy pretty good:
Mass Dragon For Town Hall 11
Making good attacks against solid TH11 bases is hard, especially because Golems get shredded by the Eagle Artillery. Here’s a guide that shows you very good how you can dominate with mass Dragon:
Mass Dragon is working very well. I personally don’t use it a lot because it’s very expensive to use. However doing Clan War attacks with it can be worth it.
Definitely make sure you know how to funnel the Dragons and also which Air Defenses you have to destroy. That’s the key skill for using this attacking strategy right.
