Clash Royale – Tesla

tesla

“Defensive building. Whenever it’s not zapping the enemy, the power of Electrickery is best kept grounded.”

 

Summary

  • This card can be found from Arena 4, P.E.K.K.A Playhouse.
  • This card costs 4 Elixir.
  • The Tesla can attack both air and land units.
  • The Tesla can only attack 1 unit at a time.
  • It hides underground when nothing it’s in its range.
  •  

    Strategy

  • Able to defend against most units effectively as it attacks both air and ground units.
  • Most players position it in the middle to lure opponent’s troops.
  • Can be used to reshuffle your deck.
  • Can be used to slow down the tempo of the game.
  • Can be used to bait the Princess over to your side of the base to destroy her instead of giving her free hits to your Tower.
  •  

    Strengths

  • Unaffected by spells such as Fireball when not attacking as it is hiding underground.
  • Not needing protection from towers as it can deal significant amount of damage and it targets both air and land units.
  • A clear counter against the Princess. She is not able to attack the Tesla as it is hidden underground, hence forcing players to attack the Tesla aggressively, if not she will get targeted by the Tesla.
  • High attack-speed and damage.
  •  

    Weakness

  • The re-target of the Tesla is quite slow, hence you can easily destroy it by swarming it with a group of troops. For example, the Minion Horde.
