WIZARD TOWER CLASH OF CLANS
The mighty Wizard in Clash of Clans has been a crowd favorite attacking unit and corollary to it standing on a spiraling, cone-shaped tower of rock is the wizard forming the monumental Wizard Tower.
The Wizard Tower is a mammoth defense building. It renders strong splash damage making hostile to it any low hit point troop like the Archers, Barbarians, Goblins, Minions, Lava pups, Hogs. The list includes the newer spells are very susceptible to large amounts of splash damage. It renders the Skeleton spell as well as the Bat spell practically useless.
The Wizard Tower just like the mortar or the eagle artillery renders splash damage. It wipes out many troops with one single hit and hence, is potentially fatal to an attack.
While creating a defensive strategy, the maker of a base must keep this key defense in mind. The maker must sufficiently guard the Wizard Tower with multiple trash buildings. It would allow the Wizard Tower to render maximum damage before being wiped out by the attacking troops.
Based on the opponents attacking strategy, the maker may predict the type of attack. Either predominantly ground or air, and accordingly place the Wizard Towers. If placed towards the exterior of the base they are incredibly vulnerable to cascading hogs as well as bowlers. They may even be cleared out by a Queen walk which is fatal to a defense.
While attacking one must carefully analyze the placement of this indispensable defense unit. Players keep wizard tower generally in the inner layers of the base to allow them to maximize damage. These may be strategically be placed behind a high hit point building. For Example, the storages or the clan castle to enable it to render damage for prolonged periods. Hence making up for its low hit points.
An attacker must pay special attention to these towers while carrying out either a ‘Gohog’ (Golem + Hog Riders) or an ‘all hog’ attack. It is because hogs are very vulnerable to splash damage. A special amount of care must be observed with the tricky ‘Lavaloonian’ (Lava hound + Balloons) attack. Loons are also vulnerable.
While using the skeleton as well as the bat spells or carrying out a ‘Barch’ (Barbarians + Archers) or ‘Gobarch’ (Goblins + Barbarians + Archers) in clearing out defenses, the attacker must strategically plan out all the freeze spells to prevent the Wizard Towers from annihilating the troops.
WIZARD TOWER LEVEL 3:
The level 3 wizard tower may be ineffective when compared maxed out Wizard Tower. Still, it lashes out decent levels of damage appropriate to the level of the player.
It is one of the most key defenses at this early a stage in the game. The reasons being that most attackers have the attack strategy of basic ‘Barch’ (Barbarians + Archers). Attacks at this level which now seem to prove absolutely ineffective when faced by the Wizard Tower.
The minions who are a trusty air troop at a low level, as well as the balloons, are highly vulnerable to 16 points of damage per second. It isn’t a very rare sight that the Wizard Tower is the only building standing with 680 hit points. It makes it very difficult for the lower level troops to tackle.
The tower now has more purple crystals spread out over the tower. The wizard takes on a new light purple cloak color which depicts the advancement in the level of the wizard itself.
WIZARD TOWER LEVEL 5
The level 5 Wizard Tower may seem a little lost with the increased number of defenses at the level 7 townhall however it is still an important defense because it effectively helps counter popular townhall 7 attack strategies like the ‘Loonian’ (Balloons), or the ‘Gohog’ (Golem + Hog riders) or even the all Dragon strategy.
With a decent 24 points of damage per second and an 840 hit points, it remains an indispensable defence unit. The tower itself has also taken a newer design with the purple crystals now uniformly forming a crystal base with only a tip made of rock.
WIZARD TOWER LEVEL 9:
With the most recent game update and the introduction of the level, 12 townhall players may update their Wizard Towers to up to a maximum level 9 even at a level 10 town hall.
This allows the players with level 10 townhalls to effectively defend potentially over powerful attackers. And thereby perform well in wars as well as defend their loots on a day to day basis.
The level 9 Wizard Tower has a potentially fatal 50 points of damage per second coupled with 1680 building hit points. It is enough standing to defend against residual lava pups or minions which may be the difference between a potential three star and a high percentage of two stars.
The tower is completely made of crystals. It is purple along with four royal looking marble ridges at the top. This is a design advancement from the metal ridges.
WIZARD TOWER LEVEL 10
After the introduction of the level 12 town hall and level 11 no longer being the maximum limit. Newer and far more aggressive levels are now available for defenses to promote an effective defense strategy. Therefore the level 10 Wizard Tower is no longer, “the maxed out” with the presence of the upgrade to a level 11 Wizard Tower.
However, it is still an effective defense with 5 Wizard Towers being available to build at the level 11 town hall. Level 10 Wizard Tower have massive 62 points of damage per second. An enduring 2000 hit points here the crystals now have a top marble-like look. Even on the top surface where the wizard stands and the wizard himself has an intimidating look with devilish green eyes.
