Using Poison Spell for dealing with Clan troops

Tips and tricks for using Poison Spell

  • This spell just takes 1 spell housing space while 1 Lightning Spell takes 2. If you can lure Clan troops all out and want to choose a spell for dealing with Clan troops, this one is the best!
  • This spell just works effectively in a circular area while the Lightning Spell has certain patterns. You need to choose the right spells for specific attacks. This one is not always the best.
  • Poison Spell doesn’t drain the enemies’ health immediately but progressively. Make sure that you have enough time to complete the attack. Do the killing Clan troops step quickly.
  • You can use multiple Poisons at the same time. There is no damage penalty here.
  • 1 level 1 Poison Spell can kill all Barbarians, Goblins, Archers, Wizards, Witches and Minions.
  • 7 level 1 bottles of this spell can take down the level 5 Barbarian King.

      Just use Clan troops as normal. Not all players bring Poison Spells into the War. It depends on their attack strategies.

    I dont understand the total damage given in the above chart. According to it more than 4 lvl3 poison spell should b requiered for killing a lvl3 dragon

    But in our clan war, in a replay i saw dragon’s hp to drop more than half its total hp when a lvl3 poison was dropped on a lvl3 drag. Later another lvl2 poison killed the drag
    According to d chart damage of lvl2 and lvl3 poison spell should b 810
    But a lvl3 dragon’s hp is 2300.
    Can somebody explain…

    • Will Potter
