The Valkyrie is the third dark troop available in Clash of Clans, unlocked after the Minions and Hog Riders. Players can access Valkyrie once they upgrade their Dark Barracks to level 3 at Town Hall 8.
This powerful troop serves as the main ingredient of the popular GoWiVa attack strategy, which is widely used at lower Town Hall levels.
The Valkyrie relies on a heavy axe as her primary weapon. When she reaches her intended target, this fierce warrior unleashes a spinning attack that can deal significant damage to multiple buildings at once.
However, Valkyrie’s spinning attack only affects closely-located buildings, which means that it’s most effective against tightly-packed enemy bases.
The Valkyrie has a total of nine levels that players can upgrade her to. At her maximum level, the Valkyrie deals an impressive 208 damage per second and has 2000 hitpoints.
With a housing space of eight in Army Camps, players must be strategic in selecting which troops to include in their army composition.
The Valkyrie moves quickly with a movement speed of 24, allowing her to quickly close in on enemy buildings and defenses. As for targeting, the Valkyrie has no favorite targets and will attack the nearest building or troop in her vicinity.
When the Valkyrie attacks, she deals splash damage to tightly packed buildings. One thing to keep in mind is that the Valkyrie can only target and attack ground-based targets.
Valkyrie’s Max Levels
Valkyrie has a total of nine levels. She can be maxed out at Town Hall 15. Super Valkyrie becomes available once Valkyrie reaches level 7.
Here is the list of max levels of Valkyrie:
- Max level of Valkyrie at Town Hall 8 is level 2.

How to effectively use Valkyrie
The Valkyrie is a troop that enjoys immense popularity at lower Town Hall levels, particularly at Town Halls 8, 9, and 10.
Thanks to her impressive abilities to deal splash damage, the Valkyrie has become an important part of many attack strategies at these levels.
However, at higher Town Hall levels, the Valkyrie’s effectiveness diminishes, and players are less likely to use her in their attack strategies.
One of the keys to using Valkyries effectively is to pair them with a strong tank troop, such as a Golem or a Giant. This allows the Valkyries to get close to the enemy defenses without taking too much damage themselves.
Additionally, it’s important to use spells such as Rage and Heal to increase their damage output and keep them alive.
When deploying Valkyries, it’s important to consider their pathing. They have a tendency to attack the nearest building, which can lead them away from the core of the base where the most valuable targets are located.
To combat this, it can be useful to deploy them in a specific location and use a Jump spell to create a direct path to the core.
Another useful strategy is to use Valkyries in combination with other troops, such as Hog Riders or Wizards. Hog Riders can take out the defenses while the Valkyries and Wizards can focus on taking out the remaining buildings.
This creates a balanced army combination that can take on some of the toughest bases.
Super Valkyrie is a better version of regular Valkyrie with a unique ability to drop a Rage Spell when she is defeated.
As a boosted version of the regular Valkyrie, Super Valkyrie is available once the Valkyrie is upgraded to level 7 at Town Hall 12. To boost Valkyrie to Super Valkyrie, 25000 Dark Elixirs are required.
One of the unique abilities of Super Valkyrie is her Rage Spell. When she dies, she drops a Rage Spell that can significantly increase the damage output and speed of the troops around her.
This can be particularly useful in situations where the attack is intense, and the attacker needs a boost to get through the defenses.
Another significant difference between Super Valkyrie and regular Valkyrie is the space they occupy. While regular Valkyrie takes up housing space of 8, Super Valkyrie requires 20 spaces in your Army Camps and Clan Castle.
This means that players need to plan their army composition carefully to make the most of Super Valkyrie.
In terms of combat stats, Super Valkyrie has higher damage per second and hit points compared to regular Valkyrie. This makes her more effective at dealing damage to buildings and taking down enemy defenses.
