It is the season of giving with Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanza all within a few days of one another. What troops should you be giving in people clan castles on defense? I’ve spelled out the top 5 based on damage, troop space, and hitpoints on a scale of 1-5. You might be surprised by some of the results.
Wizards are easily the best troop to have in your clan castle on defense. They deal high damage to destroy golems and other high level troops. They also do splash-damage which will absolutely KILL balloonion raids. They are relatively small as well, only taking up 4 space, but deal a massive punch.
These ladies aren’t the best to take out huge units since they don’t do a lot of damage. The reason for having these is there space. They only take up one space which means you can fill your CC with archers! The attacker will waste tons of time and troops trying to take them all out.
Valkyries are the most underrated troop in the game and can actually be quite useful on defense. The secret to their succes is their splash damage. Attackers cannot surround the valkyries with troops since it will take them all out in one punch. Upgrade your CC to 4 and you can fit 3 of these girls.
Minions are so great because they can fly. That means barbarians, P.E.K.K.A.s, and valkyries cannot destroy them. They only take up 2 spaces so you can shove a lot in. If they spread out when lured, that means instant trouble for the attacker since they won’t be able to kill them all easily.
The dragon only has one downside and that is its space. In any clan castle, even a level 6 one, only one dragon can fit inside. The 20 space is used well since dragons have massive hitpoints and also massive damage per second. It can take down hoards of archers before going down itself.
