Barbarian Bowl (Arena 3)
“A horde of swordsmen with mean mustaches and even meaner tempers.”
How to use (Strategy)
One of the favourite cards in most of the decks. Played from early levels up to Arena 8, barbarians is a great defense card which can be used to counter attack too. In case of counter-attack and reach the tower, it worths to use Rage on them cause they can do pretty high damage to the tower.
Coming in at only 5 elixir cost, barbarians are good because they are tanky, strong and they don't die with one arrow spell, however, they are susceptible to fire bomb. They can counter many cards, being particularly strong against Hog Rider because they can block him (reduce his speed) towards the tower.
One of the most used combos for high arena levels is to combine barbarians with the royal giant. The royal giant is easily countered with inferno tower, but if you put down barbarians in front of the royal giant, the opponent can't do anything about it.
To counter the barbarians, the best choices are either have a bomb tower, a bomber, flying troops and troops with splash damage such as Valkyrie. Also, they can easily distracted with troops away from the tower, since they are very slow, the tower will kill them little by little.
Great on defense. They counter every ground unit without damage in area.
Used in all Arena levels. Defensive troop with counter-attack potential.
Easily countered with splash damage units and/or spells.
