Grand Warden In-Depth Guide

Hey guys it’s Ash and I’m going to give you guys an in depth explanation of the newest Hero Supercell has revealed today, The Grand Warden! You guys may have seen some other sneak peeks talking about this new hero’s attributes, but there’s actually more:

Clash of Clans Grand Warden Guide

Key Features and Attributes:

  • Maximum level = 20
  • Grand Warden costs 6 million Elixir Elixir to get. Also it costs Elixir Elixir to upgrade him every level, a 500,000 elixir increment per level.
  • 110 DPS at level 20, which is less than a level 4 Wizard. He has 1500 HP at level 20, which is less than a level 40 Archer Queen (1630 HP)
  • He can be set to Ground or Air modes. If you set him to Ground mode, he will still be able to glide or hop over Walls, kind of like a Hog Rider.The main reason for these two modes is so you can couple him to your preferred attack strategy, whether it’s an air attack or ground attack. While it sounds cool to use him in flying mode with a ground attack, that is actually a bad idea because then he will be targeted by air traps and Air Defenses.
  • He has two abilities, one is his passive Life Aura ability (which is a 10 tile radius buffer that reduces the damage dealt by defenses) and the other is his Eternal Tome ability (which you get to activate by tapping his icon).

How does the Life Aura work?

Depending on troop maximum HP, the Life Aura Effect of the Grand Warden will increase the HP all troops within the aura range but with a limit. For more details, you can read the Life Aura table at the end of this page.

What does his Eternal Tome ability do?

By tapping his icon, you can activate his Eternal Tome ability. While the ability is activated, all the troops inside the 10 tile radius of the Aura will be invulnerable to all damage including the Grand Warden himself.

How long does his ability last?

At level 20, his ability lasts for 5 seconds and it is 3,5s with the ability level 1. We know that the Archer Queen becomes impermeable to all damage when she activates her ability. And now if you have her within the radius of the Aura, then that just increases her invulnerability to more damage. So using all 3 of the Heroes together does sound very overpowering handle as they make a deadly combination.

Grand Warden Attacking

He has a deadly 7 tile attack range

One of the biggest attributes of the Warden is his attack range, which is an incredible 7 tile range. The best way to stop the strongest attack by a TH11 player is to stop the Grand Warden because he’s going to make your defenses deal 2/3rd their actual damage. But how you can stop the Grand Warden when he has a range of 7 tiles, allowing him to stay behind all troops? We all know how incredibly annoying the Archer Queen is to defend with her 5 tile range, but now we have a Hero with an even greater range, so it’s going to be very intriguing to see what people do to stop him.

What about the A.I. of the Grand Warden?

If you send him alone, then he will target the closest structure. But, if you send him behind other troops, he will target the building that the closest troop next to him is targeting. So he’s considered more to be a support Hero, a Hero who supports your troops both in terms of defense and also helps them by targeting the same structure that they are. However, this could sometimes backfire, so you need to make sure to keep the Warden behind your troops.

Thanks for reading! Hope this guide can help you somehow!

  • Mirza Jatt

    Sounds super healer to me …..!!

    • Will Potter

      Yea. Me too lol.

  • Joshua Lao

    Warden Walk! Though it will take a really long time for him to do what he has to do…m

    • PaCorbin

      what do you mean by warden walk? i would like to know your ideas on this so far if you dont mind

      • Joshua Lao

        Basically Put a warden then healers, it will be impossible(I think) for the A.D. To hit the healers.

  • PaCorbin

    would the grand warden give its buff to ground troops while flying? and vice versa, would it give its buff to flying troops while on the ground? sorry, i havent watched any videos, i only come here for my sneak peeks. this is a really amazing site, i love it, good job on this site btw, ive read almost every guide on here

    • Will Potter

      This hasn’t been mentioned yet. I think he can only buff air troops when he is flying. We will know that soon.
      Thanks for visiting my blog man! I really appreciate it!

      • PaCorbin

        okay thanks, and you’re welcome. thanks for making such an amazing blog, i come to this site at least once every day.

        • Will Potter

          Thanks you buddy! I really appreciate it xD.

        • Madhawa Madushanka

          Same. Will is doing a great job

  • sumit

    will he be available only on TH11 ?

    • Daniel M. Ramos

      Yup

    • Will Potter

      Yea sure!

  • carlty

    im a new th10.. 9.5 to be exact.. would it be wise to upgrade straight thru th11 just to get this hero and the extra level of troops?

    • Will Potter

      You can do that buddy! I will do that with my TH 9.5 account!

      • carlty

        orayt!! thanks for the heads up

  • HavoK

    We had a poll about the guessing, who the next hero would be ?? Everyone casted their votes.

    But what does Supercell give us (not exactly all of us, because it is only available at TH11), a purple haired punk, somewhere between a superhealer, Wizard King and a Nerfed Archer Queen ?? wtf

    • Will Potter

      LOL Super Healer! That’s him!

      • HavoK

        A healer that becomes a statue out of fear when someone attacks ?? xD

        • Will Potter

          LOL

      • Madhawa Madushanka

        Lol yea

  • Ashokkumar

    Has Supercell confirmed that Warden can be bought in TH 11 only..

    Will this hero defend our village while enemy is attacking..

    • HavoK

      Yes, Patrick (aka Cheif Pat) on the behalf of Supercell, has confirmed that the hero will be available TH11 onwards. As far as your second question goes, you can find your answers here cocland.com/guides/grand-warden-on-defense

  • Daniel M. Ramos

    Ok, has anybody considered using healers (6) with this hero? He will kill all air defenses even worse than a super queen. ?

    • Madhawa Madushanka

      His dps is very low. So i dont think so

      • Daniel M. Ramos

        Yes, but he can jump over walls and his range is really really long. There is no chance the healers will get killed. Even with the super queen strategy the healers get shot.

        • Madhawa Madushanka

          Ya may be. But he cant raid whole base like Superqueen. Thats what i mentiond. We have limited time so.
          Plus the power of multi healers on a same target had reduced with new update. So no more multiple healer stuff.
          Btw our new multiple healer is the grand warden :3

          • Daniel M. Ramos

            Hey, you are forgetting that healer effectiveness was only reduced past six healers. Six healers on a warden will be pretty awesome, especially when you. Insider that all of those healers will be covered by his special damage reduction power and he has that long range. He may have an attack that isn’t all that impressive damage wise, but the fact that he has other advantages more than makes up for that. He ignores walls, that isnhuge!

    • Will Potter

      I’m working on this LOL

      • Daniel M. Ramos

        Cool! Hey Will, have you tried using goblins to attack a town hall yet? I haven’t. I am just using Go-Hog, which is serving me quite well. I have actually gone up in trophies past my past max. Maybe I will be able to hit champion league this way. That would be sweet! 🙂

        • Arrow

          Hey Daniel! What army composition do u use for Go-Hog?

          • Daniel M. Ramos

            I have maxed troops for TH 8. I am switching to TH 9 now.
            I take 1xGolem lvl 2, 14xWizards lvl 5, 20xHog Riders lvl 4, 7x Wall breakers lvl 5, King lvl 10, 3xheal spells, 2xpoison spells, Wizards in the clan castle.

        • Will Potter

          I haven’t used Goblins since the update released. Gonna try that soon xD.
          Good luck Daniel! See ya in Champion!

        • Fulioso skys

          Im also doing Go-Hog, im th9 in champions league 3 and its really good, im always gettin 400k bases plus the bonus that give 600k each raid and i think ill be reaching champions 2 really soon

  • Arrow

    Hey, I am a th9 with 3 cannons level 11 , 1 wizard tower lvl 7 and all mortars level 7, with the other defenses being th8 max

    Should I wait for everything to be maxed to upgrade the th? Or should i upgrade it now? (I have lvl 7 walls)

    • Daniel M. Ramos

      This is just my opinion, but I think that having maxed defenses is VERY important after the update. I would make sure all of my defenses were upgraded to the max before moving on to the next level.

      • Arrow

        Ok, thanks Daniel! What level you think I should also upgrade my walls and heroes??

        • Daniel M. Ramos

          Yes, absolutely!

          • Arrow

            To what level?

          • Daniel M. Ramos

            See my comment above.

          • Arrow

            Ok, thanks! Getting both heroes to 30 will be difficult but ill try

          • Daniel M. Ramos

            Good luck! You know, I think now is the time to push for booty while the update is fresh. We are experiencing a windfall of loot; however, I don’t think this will last. I don’t think the numbers will add up in the long run, so now is the time to gather loot for upgrades in my opinion. For example, I just gutted an almost maxed out town hall 8 base for 484,818 gold, 491,221 elixir, 3,182 dark elixir, and 24 trophies. This update requires you to use a full on war army to get that kind of loot, so overall you may end up attacking less. Dedication is important right now.

          • Arrow

            Yeah xD; but, push for “booty”???

        • Daniel M. Ramos

          I maxed out my king before I went to TH 9. I also maxed out most of my external walls before I started the upgrade process for the TH. While the town hall was upgrading I concentrated on upgrading as many walls as I could, because everything else was maxed out.

  • HEY… I have the christmas tree leaked!!!
    Contact me 🙂

  • Ultimit☆Cuest

    Yes, I’m already thinking about it, who thinks a massive dragon that’s considered ground and air for th13, and a witch that can summon skeletons that attack like valkiries?!!? And I only got th8 a week ago. 😉

    • Ultimit☆Cuest

      Witch thing for th15. Yes I’m going that far.

  • Edan Hilario’us Other Side

    just wanna ask, is it true that if the warden is in defense mode, he can still give aura to the bldgs and defensive troops?… and the % effect is same if his in offense mode?…

    • Will Potter

      Yes, it’s true mate.

      • Edan Hilario’us Other Side

        so is it advisable to put ur warden at the center of ur base to make the TH and other defs there more durable as well as the heroes if they can get the warden’s defensive aura?

        • Will Potter

          Of course. I always recommend doing that :D.
