Clash Royale – Golem

golem

“Slow but durable, only attacks buildings. When destroyed, explosively splits into two Golemites and deals area damage!”

 

Summary

  • This card can be found from Arena 6, Builder’s Workshop.
  • This card costs 8 Elixir.
  • The Golem only target buildings.
  • Tankiest card in the game.
  • When it dies, it explodes, dealing Area Damage while producing 2 Golemites. Which continues to attack and when they die, they explode once more, dealing Area Damage.
  •  

    Strategy

  • As it is a very costly card, deploy it from all the way at the back to allow you to farm sufficient elixir for supporting troops.
  • Normally, people use a high damaging supporting card as the Golem is very tanky and it can soak up more than enough damage for the damage card to deal tons of damage.
  • Complements well with troops like the Sparky and Wizard. The splash damage they deal helps the Golem clear surrounding troops.
  •  

    Strengths

  • Tankiest card in the game.
  • Opponent will have to waste lots of elixir defending against it as it is very tanky.
  • Deals splash damage to both troops and buildings when it dies.
  • Provides more tanking through Golemites.
  •  

    Weakness

  • Too costly. Not able to deploy the supporting card straightaway.
  • Slow attack and movement speed.
  • Air units can easily destroy the Golem-Prince Combo as neither of them can attack air units.
