|Limited Edition Troops|
The Ice Wizard
The first ever limited edition troop was the Ice Wizard, which was introduced for Christmas of 2016. The Ice Wizard was a defense targeting wizard that could slow down defenses with its freezing attacks. This made it great for setting up the funnel and supporting other troops.
The Ice Wizard made a comeback in 2020 and was also featured in the epic winter scenery. Many players loved using the Ice Wizard, especially when paired with an Ice Golem, to create a powerful ice combo.
The Ice Wizard was one of the most popular limited edition troops and personally my favorite one. It added a lot of fun and strategy to the game.
The Battle Ram
The next limited edition troop was the Battle Ram, which was released for the Builder's birthday in August of 2017. The Battle Ram was a troop that consisted of four barbarians carrying a log. It would charge at the nearest building and deal massive damage upon impact. Then, the barbarians would jump off and attack nearby targets.
The Battle Ram was a fun and unique troop to use, as it had a shield mechanic that protected the barbarians until the log was destroyed. However, it was not very effective strategically, as the barbarians were vulnerable to splash damage and there were better options for funneling.
The Battle Ram was a cool addition to the game, but it did not have the same impact as the Ice Wizard.
The Pumpkin Barbarian and the Giant Skeleton
For Halloween of 2017, we received two limited edition troops: the Pumpkin Barbarian and the Giant Skeleton.
The Pumpkin Barbarian was essentially a barbarian with a pumpkin on its head. This gave it an extra layer of protection, as it could survive one more hit than a regular barbarian. The Pumpkin Barbarian was still only one housing space, so it was a great value for money.
The Giant Skeleton was a huge and slow troop that targeted defenses. It had a special ability that made it explode when it died, dealing huge damage to nearby buildings and troops. This was similar to how the Super Pekka in the Builder Base worked.
The Pumpkin Barbarian and the Giant Skeleton were both fun and spooky troops to use for Halloween. They added some variety and challenge to the game.
The Skeleton Barrel
The next limited edition troop we received was the Skeleton Barrel, which was introduced for Halloween of 2018 and also returned in 2020. The Skeleton Barrel was a flying troop that carried a bunch of skeletons inside. It would fly towards a building and explode, releasing the skeletons on the ground.
The Skeleton Barrel was a tricky troop to use, as it had different vulnerabilities at different stages. It could be shot down by air defenses while flying, but it could also be wiped out by splash damage after dropping the skeletons. It was rare to find bases that were weak to this troop or to use it effectively.
The Skeleton Barrel was a fun and unique troop to use, but it was not very powerful or popular. It also marked a change in the rules for limited edition troops, as they would no longer stay in your army composition after the event was over.
The fifth limited edition troop we ever received was El Primo, which was released for the launch of Brawl Stars in December of 2018. El Primo was a huge and strong troop that targeted defenses and dealt a lot of damage. He also had a special ability that made him jump over walls and deal extra damage to them.
El Primo was a very powerful and overpowered troop that could easily smash through bases. He was great for setting up the funnel and clearing out defenses. He could also be used with other troops like Pekkas or Valkyries to create a devastating attack.
El Primo was one of the most overpowered limited edition troops we ever received and he added a lot of excitement and chaos to the game. He was also a nice crossover from Brawl Stars.
The Party Wizard
The final limited edition troop we have ever received in Clash of Clans is the Party Wizard. This is essentially a wizard with sunglasses on that throws confetti instead of fireballs. We received this for Clash of Clans' seventh and eighth anniversary in 2019 and 2020.
The Party Wizard was a better version of the regular wizard, as it had higher damage and faster attack speed, but lower hit points. This made it ideal for cleaning up buildings or supporting tanky troops like golems. The Party Wizard also had a cool theme tune that played when it attacked.
The Party Wizard was a fun and festive troop to use for the anniversary events. It was also a very effective troop that could boost your attacks.
The Royal Ghost
The second last new limited edition troop we ever received was the Royal Ghost, which was introduced for Halloween of 2019. The Royal Ghost was a stealthy and powerful troop that could turn invisible for 12 seconds and target defenses. It was like a sneaky goblin on steroids.
The Royal Ghost was a very fun and satisfying troop to use, as it could sneak past walls and traps and take out key defenses. It was also great for using with bat spells, as it could clear the splash damage buildings that could stop the bats.
The Royal Ghost was probably the most enjoyable limited edition troop to use, as it had a unique and cool mechanic. It was also very effective and versatile for different attack strategies.
The Ram Rider
The latest addition to Clash of Clans' limited edition troop roster is the Ram Rider. This mighty warrior on a charging Ram mount made its grand entrance into the game with a thunderous impact. Introduced as a part of a special event, the Ram Rider brings a new level of power and strategy to the battlefield.
The Ram Rider possesses unique abilities that set it apart from other troops. Mounted on a fearsome Ram, this troop charges towards its targets with incredible speed, dealing massive damage upon impact. Its charging ability allows it to quickly close the gap between defenses and wreak havoc on enemy structures.
