Summary

  • This card can be found from Arena 5, Spell Valley.
  • This card cost 2 Elixir.
  • It damages troops in the AoE, and stuns them for 1 second as well.
  • Mini version of the Lightning.
  •  

    Strategy

  • Use to clear wave of troops that are squishy because the damage is not as high as Lightning.
  • Highly recommend to be used when you have supporting troops to deal damage as the damage by Zap itself is low and you can maximize the 1 second stun.
  • The Zap can be used to damage squishy troops such as Minions, which allows your Tower to finish the job without getting any damage.
  • The Zap can be used to reset the target of the X-Bow.
  • The Zap can be used to reset the charge of the Dark Prince and the Prince.
  •  

    Strengths

  • 1 second stun. It allows your troops to gain a significant advantage during battle.
  • Elixir-Efficient.
  • Generally preferred over the Lightning as it is cheap and it can be complemented with other troops.
  • Able to reset the target of the X-Bow.
  • Able to reset the charge of the Dark Prince and the Prince.
  •  

    Weaknesses

  • The damage is very low, hence it is not able to clear any troops by itself, as compared to other damage spells such as the Fireball.
  • AoE is quite small, hence it might be quite difficult to aim and it might not be able to hit every troop.
  • The Zap, requires supporting troops unlike spells like the Fireball or even Arrows.

  • The update changed the description from “Lightning zaps enemies, dealing damage inside a small radius. Reduced damage to Crown Towers.” to the current one.
  • Do not be mistaken with Lightning and Zap, they look similar but they are different. With Zap being the cheaper, but weaker one.
  • Zap works like the Poison spell in Clash of Clans, however it stuns and deals the damage straightaway, while Poison slows the movement speed of troops while dealing dps.
  • It has a similar Area Damage of the spell, Arrows.
