giant

“Slow but durable, only attacks buildings. A real one-man wrecking crew!”
 

Summary

  • This card can be found from Tutorial.
  • This card costs 5 Elixir.
  • The Giant is basically a tank that target buildings only.
  •  

    Strategy

  • The Giant is basically used as a meat shield. It just tanks the damage from towers and troops while allowing other supporting troops to deal damage without getting targeted.
  • Can be used to defend as well by allowing opponent troops to attack it while the Towers deal the damage.
  • The Rage spell, allows the Giant to move faster, hence allowing the Giant to reach the Towers faster.
  • Works well with the Sparky. The Sparky can charge its attack without getting targeted.
  • Pairs up well with the Three Musketeers.
  • Can be used to stack up your spawns.
  •  

    Strengths

  • Extremely powerful early game. Players do not have the necessary cards to clear the Giant.
  • Can deal huge amount of damage to the tower when opponent doesn’t have strong troops to destroy it in time.
  • It can be used as a bait to open up the base of the opponent because the opponent cannot ignore it as it can destroy a Tower on its own.
  • One of the tankiest card.
  •  

    Weaknesses

  • Slow movement speed. Opponent can easily destroy it even before it reaches opponent’s tower.
  • Inferno Tower. Its damage is increased overtime.
  • It is bad against a Tombstone as when it is destroyed, it produces 4 Skeletons to attack the Giant.
  • Not independent, its very difficult to use it as a troop on its own as it only attack buildings.
