Clash Royale – Barbarians

barbarians

“A horde of swordsmen with mean mustaches and even meaner tempers.”
 

Summary

  • This card can be found from Arena 3, Barbarian Bowl.
  • This card costs 5 Elixir.
  • It summons 4 Barbarians.
  •  

    Strategy

  • Complements well with Range troops like Archers to deal significant damage to enemy troops or towers.
  • Deployed on top of enemy troops to quickly eliminate the target without not suffering heavy casualties.
  • Can be use to bait opponent troops to tank the damage while other troops destroy them.
  • Works well with Barbarian Hut as it gives you another Barbarian to make it 5. Which means, you get to tank more and deal even more damage!
  •  

    Strengths

  • Can be used to tank enemy while attacking them with other troops.
  • Not easily taken down as you have 4 Barbarians.
  • Extremely good for both attacking and defending. Deals decent amount of damage and it has decent amount of hitpoints.
  • A well placed Barbarians can take down the Hog Rider without the Hog Rider getting a single hit on your tower.
  •  

     

    Weaknesses

  • Air units can destroy them easily if they are alone.
  • As the Barbarians are only able to attack units 1 by 1, the Witch can counter it by using its Skeletons to distract their attacks while her normal attack which deals splash damage destroys them.
  • The Fireball can lower their hp by +75% if used correctly.
  • Valkyrie. A well placed Valkyrie can easily destroy all Barbarians.
  • Splash damage. The Barbarians are very close to one another, hence any troop that deals splash damage, for example the Wizard, is able to take them down without receiving any damage in return if placed properly.
