You can upgrade your Dragon to level 3 using the laboratory. This will make Dragon the strongest air troop for Town Hall 8 players in the game. A level 3 Dragon has the following statistics:

  • Damage per second - 180
  • Damage per attack - 225
  • Hitpoints - 2300
  • Army space - 20

Since every Town Hall 8 player has three Air Defenses, you can use Zaps to take at least one defense early. The other option is to carry Rage spells to use on Dragons and Balloons once you reach the core of the base.

The optimal army composition of Town Hall 8 Mass Dragons attacking strategy in Clash of Clans is as follows:

  • 10 Dragons
  • 3 Lightning spells
  • 2 Rage spells
  • 5 Balloons and 1 Earthquake spell in clan castle

You may choose to make certain changes in the army composition of the attacking strategy depending on the base.

In case of any Air Defense near the corners, you can use some Hog Riders to clear it. Requesting a higher level Dragon in the clan castle and replacing one regular army Dragon with four Balloons is another change that you can make to this strategy. You can also make spell changes, like replacing both Rage spells with four Zap spells to easily clear another Air Defense.

Following is the step-by-step guide to one of the strongest air attack strategies for Town Hall 8 in the game. You can make a few changes to the strategy based on the base and army composition.

  • Use one Earthquake spell and all three Zap spells to take down one Air Defense initially. Try to damage a few Archer Towers using the Earthquake spell.
  • Look for the Air Sweeper and start the Mass Dragons attack from the opposite side.
  • Drop one Dragon each in the corners of the attacking side to clear outside buildings. This would save Dragons from spreading.
  • Once the funnel is created, drop all the remaining Dragons along with clan castle Balloons.
  • Use one Rage spell initially to boost the troops. Save the other Rage spell for the core or once the Dragons are near any Air Defense.
  • Drop the Barbarian King near Archer Towers to distract them from attacking Dragons. He will also be able to take down any remaining outside buildings.

You can use this attacking strategy in both multiplayer and clan war battles for maximum loot and stars. Try to level up all the spells and troops of the Mass Dragons attacking strategy before you use it in clan wars.
