princess updataed

“Shoots a volley of flaming arrows halfway across the Arena. The Princess is afraid of germs, so keep the rabble away from her!”

 

Summary

  • This card can be found from Arena 7, Royal Arena.
  • This card costs 3 Elixir.
  • The Princess, is a squishy, long range troop that deals splash damage.
  • The Princess, is able to deal damage to an Arena Tower, without being targeted by the Tower.
  •  

    Strategy

  • Deploy the Princess with a tank troop such as the Golem to allow her to focus on the Tower without being targeted by defensive troops. As such, opponent will have to react to it.
  • When using the Princess defensively, deploy her defensively (behind your Tower), to prevent her from being targeted as she is extremely squishy.
  • The Princess can be used to clear waves of squishy units as it deals area damage.
  • Complements well with the Mirror spell, as it summons another Princess. Most players tend to use a spell to destroy the Princess, hence the Mirror will allow you to have another Princess while opponents are forced to deploy troops to destroy your Princess unless they have another Spell. But, seldom do we see a player having 2 spells in a deck.

    Strengths

  • The Princess is able to attack enemy’s Arena Tower without being targeted by the Tower.
  • Deals quite a high amount of area damage.
  • Has an extremely long range. Hence, allowing her to be away from the battle zone.
  •  

    Weaknesses

  • The Princess is very squishy. Once a troop gets to her she is more or less dead.
  • Slow attack speed.
  • The Princess is not able to attack the Tesla as the Tesla is hidden underground. Hence, forcing players to attack the Tesla aggressively, if not the Princess will get destroyed by the Tesla.
  • Spells such as the Arrows and Fireball can destroy her. Do note that a max level Arrows is not able to destroy a max level Princess.
