    Strategy

  • Most players use to to aim opponent’s tower instead of troops.
  • Can be used on Spawning Cards, such as the Goblin Hut to either destroy it or significantly damage it, hence there will be lesser spawns.
  • If it is used on troops, it is mostly used to weaken troops that has high hitpoints. For example, the Giant.
  • Can be used to defend when there is a small group of troop clustered together.
  • However, due to it’s small AoE, it is difficult to cast it accurately, so I would suggest to aim it at your tower when they are about to attack. 2 seconds before reaching would be a good timing as it takes time for to be launched.
  • Can be used to steal a victory by deploying it at a Tower that has low remaining hitpoints.
  • Can be used with the X-Bow deck.
