Grand Warden’s Details
Out of all the heroes in Clash of Clans, the Grand Warden is unique in a way that he can both fly and walk. In the event of an attack on your village, the Grand Warden will transform into a statue, unleashing a devastating wave of damage upon enemy troops.
His skills set the Grand Warden apart from the other heroes in the game, making him a strong addition to any army combination.
Players can obtain the Grand Warden once they reach Town Hall 11, and can continue to level him up to level 20 at the same Town Hall level.
The Grand Warden wields a staff in his right hand, which serves as his primary attack. In his left hand, he carries a magic book that contains all of his powerful spells.
With his flowing robes and beard, the Grand Warden bears a striking resemblance to the wizard Gandalf from Lord of the Rings.
During battles, the Grand Warden can unleash magic beams from his staff, which deal a significant amount of damage per second, albeit with a slow attack rate.
Additionally, his presence on the battlefield provides an aura effect that gives a hitpoint boost to the troops that are in close proximity to him.
This makes the Grand Warden an essential hero for players who want to lead their attacks to victory.
By combining his ranged attacks with his supportive abilities, the Grand Warden can make a huge impact on the outcome of an attack strategy. The Grand Warden is a versatile hero that can target both air and ground units.
His decent range and ability to fly make him an excellent match for a Healer-based Warden Walk attack strategy. When set to ground mode, the Grand Warden can even jump over walls due to his levitation ability.
This unique ability allows him to quickly bypass obstacles and engage enemy buildings while providing good support to other troops.
One of the Grand Warden’s most impressive abilities is his Eternal Tome, which can make himself and nearby troops invincible for several seconds.
This powerful ability becomes available once the Grand Warden is upgraded to level 5, and its effectiveness increases with every five upgrades. Proper timing of the Eternal Tome is essential to getting the most out of it, as it can give players a significant advantage in battle.
With this ability, players can strategically protect their troops from enemy fire and push deeper into the enemy base.
Whether players are facing off against tough base layouts or powerful enemy defenses, the Grand Warden’s Eternal Tome can be a game-changer when used correctly.
Just like any other hero Grand Warden can attack only one defense building or troop at a time. He also has a decent amount of hitpoints and damage per second while he moves at a speed of 16.
Grand Warden’s final level is 65 which is available at Town Hall 15.
How to effectively use Grand Warden
The Grand Warden is undeniably a powerful hero, and to achieve better results in your attacks, it is essential to effectively utilize his full potential.
Choosing the Correct Movement Mode
One of the first decisions you must make when deploying the Grand Warden is selecting his movement mode. The Grand Warden offers two modes: air and ground.
Each mode has its advantages and can complement specific attack strategies.
By aligning the Grand Warden’s movement mode with your attack strategy, you can maximize his effectiveness and ensure he supports your troops optimally.
Timing the Eternal Tome Ability
The Grand Warden’s Eternal Tome is extremely powerful. This ability grants invulnerability to all friendly units within its radius for a limited time.
Timing is crucial when using this ability.
It is often advisable to activate the Eternal Tome just before your troops reach a critical point in the battle, such as encountering a heavily defended area or facing defense buildings like Scattershots, Inferno Towers, and Eagle Artillery.
By doing so, you provide your troops with a vital shield, ensuring their survival. A well-timed Eternal Tome can have a major impact on the result of even the most challenging battles.
Harnessing the Life Aura
The Grand Warden’s primary ability, the Life Aura, can have a fair impact on the result of an attack. The Life Aura emits a healing effect that provides additional hitpoints to your troops.
This ability can be particularly useful when your troops are engaging high-level defenses or enemy heroes.
By placing the Grand Warden strategically, you can maximize the coverage of his Life Aura and significantly increase the survivability of your troops. Those extra few hitpoints can give your troops more chances of survival.
Using the Long-Range Attacks
The Grand Warden has an advantage over other heroes – his long-range attack. This allows him to target important defenses or even enemy heroes from a safe distance.
At the start of a battle, you can utilize the Grand Warden’s range to your advantage by taking out critical defenses that pose a threat to your troops.
By neutralizing these defenses early on, you create a smoother path for your army to advance and increase the chances of success.
