Clash Royale – Skeletons

skeletons

“Summons an army of skeletons. Meet Larry and his friends Harry, Gerry, Terry, Mary, etc.”

 

Summary

  • This card can be found from Arena 2, Bone Pit.
  • This card costs 1 Elixir.
  • Spawns 4 Skeletons.
  • The cheapest card in the game.
  •  

    Strategy

  • Use to bait single hitting unit troops to attack them such as the P.E.K.K.A.
  • Good for reshuffling of cards to get the card player wants as it costs only 1 elixir.
  • Seldom used for attacking as they are easily destroyed due to their low hitpoints.
  • Can be used for “sacrificing” by tanking opponent’s troops attack.
  •  

    Strengths

  • Very cheap. Does not really affect your elixir as you can easily gain back that 1 elixir used.
  • Can be used to bait opposing troops to attack them while giving time for your defending troops and towers to deal damage.
  • Can be used to waste the special ability of Prince.
  • Can be used to reshuffle your hand.
  •  

    Weaknesses

  • Not versatile. Hard to use offensively as towers can easily one shot them.
  • Opponents can easily clear the Skeletons using a spell like the Arrows, or a card that deals splash damage, such as the Bomber.
  • Players do not really care about them when they are deployed alone as the tower can one shot them.
