The Valkyrie in Clash of Clans is an aggressive warrior troop with red wild hair, putting on a long leather-based loincloth with matching leather-based brassiere and knee-high boots or shoes. She boasts a huge double-bladed axe by which she shreds enemy buildings and it is around one-half of her size.

The Valkyrie or Valk gets unlocked at TH8. There are total 5 levels to upgrade. Bowlers and Valkyrie both takes 8 housing space on your Army Camp. Valks basically have no preferred targets, they shred a couple of buildings at once, however, if they see enemy troops from Clan Castle or enemy heroes they may depart their previously targeted building and will engage with the enemy troops.

Clash of Clans Valkyries Defense Strategy:

The Valkyries are incredibly strong troops and the only melee unit in the video game that deals splash damage; that they do a ton of damage and have a bit of better health. That makes it enormously useful for getting out Clan Castle units and the latest Update buffed Valkyries letting them swing and hit more efficiently, which has made them a valuable troop. The only structure where this splash effect appears is on walls; Valkyries will usually take away many walls at a time as they attack in a spiral way.

In the very first portion of this guide, I will show you some war base designs that are used by clashers in order to defend against mass Valks, as we all know it is to be a challenging to find some anti-Valk bases.

Clan Castle Defending Troops Against Valkyries:

I see that the Valkyries completely ineffective against aerial units, i.e. Baby Dragon that enrage himself and deal the same damage as a regular Dragon, but moves and fire faster. But keep in your mind, never to put the ground troops in your Clan Castle as Valks can kill your all CC within a few splash attacks.

Selecting an effective spells against mass Valks:

It is a good choice to take poison spell in your Clan Castle instead the Earthquake Spell, as it plays a vulnerable by putting a devastating damage to Valkyries.

Placement of Heroes and Traps:

Put your Barbarian King and Archer Queen directly in the core area (the center or most protected area of your base where you put your Town Hall), and till the attacker manages to funnel Valkyries in there the Heroes specially Archer Queen will wipe a huge chunk of attacker’s army. On the other side, the traps placement is very much important, so put your traps in a series towards the most vulnerable part of the base. Upgrade your spring traps first because giant bombs doesn’t impact Valks very much.

Funneling Valkyries Away From Your Core:

Valkyries, when provided an access to the core of the base, can smash it with ease. Further, don’t put high HP buildings close to each other, so they won’t be able to dig deeper into your core area. Surround crucial defense building such as infernos and X-Bows by high HP buildings such as storages.

Anti Valkyrie War Base Designs for TH10/TH11:

Here are a couple of war base designs that I assume will work quite well against Valkyrie attacks.


In this TH10 war base, you can see that the walls make up no. of compartments which divides the Town Hall and defenses. The number of small separations can break up Valkyrie funneling.


This Town Hall 11 Anti-War Base tries to divide the core from the other defenses of the base. From the replays, I’ve come to a conclusion that this particular base temps Valkyries to go around the whole base rather than going in.

GoWiVa is one of the most popular attack strategy and a better alternative of GoWiPe! You can use this cool strategy against TH8, TH9 and TH10.
