TH9 Journey - Before you begin - [10 days before D-Day]

Finally, I have maxed my TH 8 including walls and now its time to move to TH 9 which is one of the most exciting journey in Clash of Clans progression. I know I am going to need lot of resources and time to master it. In terms of numbers, they look like following-

QuantityGold Elixir Dark Elixir Time (days)
Building Upgrades 124203,696,550 57,148,550 - 526
Hero Upgrades 50 - - 4,247,500 293
Research Lab Upgrades 19 - 39,800,000 315,000 129
Wall Upgrades 250 1,020,530,000 - - -
Total 1,228,226,550 96,948,550 4,562,500 947 

On the blog, I am planning to post my weekly progress on TH 9. I have started the research 2 hours back and it will be ready in 10 days. There are few things which I already prepared and few I am going to do in next 10 days. These are very important things to make yourself fully ready when the new town hall arrives.

As you can see in the screenshot, I have collected some resources already before hitting that TH 9 button. The idea is to have full house of resources when you hit the new town hall so that you can quickly spend it on important buildings and don't become easy prey to higher targets during early phase. Following are the options available to keep the resources-

  1. At TH8, you already have 6 million gold and elixir capacity and 80K DE in storages. Make sure they are absolutely full on D-Day.
  2. You have 6 mines each can hold 200K gold making it another 1.2 million. DE in drills is approximately 1K.
  3. Additionally, you clan castle can hold around 1.2 million gold, elixir and 4.8K DE.

Resource Collection
Clan Castle1,200,0001,200,0004,800

Your gold and elixir mines produce 3.5K resources every hour. Means with a capacity of 200K, you can keep approximately 2.5 days worth of resources right inside collectors itself. So, make sure your Gold and Elixir storages become full before 2.5 days of D-Day so that rest of the resources can be kept in collectors.

Also, if you have 2 wars during that period, you can easily full your clan castle with 1.2 million resources depending on war results and bases you attack.

Having full 80K DE is definitely a help. Because you want to place your Archer Queen immediately when you hit D-Day. That costs 40K DE. Having additional 40K will help you to upgrade her initial levels quickly and give hogs lvl 5 research when your new lab is up (after 5 days of D-Day) which costs 50K DE.

Now the question is how you will defend your resources during 10 days of upgrade ? For this, the way I suggest is not tried by many ... use GEMS and buy shield. This is bit controversial and some may suggest earn whatever you loose by raiding. I leave the choice to you. I will be going the shield way. I will be using shield for 10 days - 1D + 2D + 7D shield costing total of 500 Gems. But the shield will begin 5 days before D-Day and 5 days after it by the time my research lab gets ready.

Hope this much intro is enough to begin with ...  So ... Let the Journey begin ...

As promised, I will keep posting my progress here. So stay tuned :)
