Barbarian King Strategies

Offensive strategies

  • You can active the Iron Fist Ability right before ending the battle so he will return in your village with full HP, you don’t need or can minimize the regenerate  waiting time.
  • Don’t use the ability too fast, wait until the lost HP is more than the recoverable HP so you will not wait a single drop of HP. But you don’t always need to do that, once you hit the core and there are plenty of Barbarians nearby, just active the Iron Fist so your troops can work faster.
  • Come with him, Barbarians will be much fearful because of the Ability.
  • If you use air attacks, use him for clearing the outside building. Deploy him wisely in order to not be attacked by any defensive buildings.

Defensive strategies

  • If you place your Barbarian King outside the base, you shouldn’t let him guard the base because he won’t do too much, the enemies can take him out easily. Just let him sleep.
  • If you place him inside the base and near other defensive buildings, he can lure the enemy troops into your base and ruins the attack. There are plenty of base layouts use him as a trap.
  • You can kill him with just a Minion. He can’t attack air unit.
  • He can’t not be lured to the edge like Clan Castle troops. He will come back to the Altar of the enemy troops go too far.

I hope this small guide about Barbarian King can give you all important information about our handsome Hero for increasing the effective of not only your raids but also your defenses.

    Dear Will,
    I am Ashok
    from India. I am big fan and continuously following your blog for New
    tricks and ideas. I am in Mid TH7.

    I have problem while
    using King in my battle. My king is Level 2. There are many guides in
    your blog, can u create a guide to use the king effectively.

    When I drop him, he is not entering the base. He keeps on going round the wall smashing barracks, army camps.

    I
    tried him in different ways like first clearing the buildings in the
    front and then dropping him, but he goes to corner and not entering the
    core.

    I am very much anticipating your reply regarding this. Thanks in Advance.

      Hi Ashok,
      Make sure that after removing outside walls, the walls nearby also get down and buildings behind the walls are closer than the others.
